Castine Movers, which is headquartered in Athol, MA, is a 90 year old independent family owned and operated household moving and storage business. We have 48 state authority, with warehouses in MA,FL, PA,NC and IL.
We are looking for an Operations Manager/Dispatcher that has the ability to plan driver trips and schedules, and to work with our drivers, who are a mix of company employees and owner operators, on a daily basis. We would prefer someone from the New England area, but this is not a necessity. Applicant must have excellent management and leadership skills to work with van operators as well as co-workers. Must be able to understand that the planning of company and driver schedules relates to profit for both, and therefore some financial knowledge is a plus.
Prior experience in the household moving industry would be beneficial but not necessary. Computer and logistics knowledge is necessary. Applicant must be able to handle and work through issues with drivers on a regular basis, and must be able to handle the stresses associated with this type of position. Excellent communication skills needed.
