Ehrhart Energy careers

Ehrhart Energy is a progressive and leading employer, with outstanding benefits. We have extensive employee training programs, and work hard at developing employees’ skills.

Why work for Ehrhart Energy?

  • We provide a product (heating fuel) that has a meaningful impact on our customers’ lives.
  • We are transitioning from a supplier of traditionally fossil-based fuels to one that provides renewable energy. But we’re not just jumping on every fad: we are continually researching, learning and trying to understand different options, and embracing the ones that are practical and cost-effective for main-stream customers. It is exciting and interesting to watch this happen.
  • When you grow, we grow. Your professional development is vitally important to us and we'll be encouraging it at every step.

We are currently hiring a propane delivery driver and a fuel oil delivery driver for our Trumansburg and our Ithaca facilities.

Do you enjoy working outdoors? Working independently without someone breathing down your neck? Do you have a clean license? If you say yes to all those questions, then we want to talk to you! We're looking for a fuel delivery driver in both our Trumansburg and our Ithaca facilities.

As a delivery driver, you'd essentially get a route in the morning, load your truck, and head out on your own. You'll drive stop to stop, drag a delivery hose to the tank, fill the tank, drag it back, process the invoice and move on to your next step. We expect about 30 stops per day. It's physical work, but not back-breaking, and it will help keep you in shape. Best of all, you get to work outside all year.

We have a stable work environment. We don't lay people off in the slow season. We offer good pay and very good benefits including a health insurance plan that's basically free, a 401(k), sick/vacation/personal time, and discounts on home heating fuel and products.

The position requires a CDL class B with airbrake, tanker and hazmat endorsements. I may consider an exceptional candidate without the proper license/endorsements and train that. But a clean license and clear record is essential. We have an extensive training program for the fuel oil and propane - no prior experience is necessary.

All drivers are expected to serve on-call for a week at a time every three weeks.

We have a good working environment - it's a team environment where we all work together. But during the day, you're out on your own independently.

We are veteran friendly!

You can apply through email at bill@ehrhartenergy.com, over the phone at 607-387-8881 or in person at our main office, 9787 State Rt 96, Trumansburg NY 14886. The application is available below.

We are an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate based on age, race, religion, creed, gender, national or ethnic origin or sexual orientation.
