Effingham Equity - Come be a part of our team!

Effingham Equity has seasonal CDL and non-CDL job opportunities available at all of our crop production facilities throughout the spring and summer months. Job responsibilities for the CDL positions will include transporting products from our facilities to our customer's fields. Our fleet of trucks are very well maintained and drivers generally operate within a 35 mile radius of the branch. This is a great opportunity for men and women that are semi-retired and have driving experience. The responsibilities for the non CDL positions include working outside mixing fertilizers, loading trucks, sorting seed and operating specialized equipment. While the busy farming season often requires extended hours we are willing to work with you to accommodate your schedule. For more information about these positions please contact the one of the Branch Managers at the locations listed below.
