Starting wage: $14.50/hr, no previous experience required.
Priority Express at 316 Engineers Drive, Williston, VT, is hiring full time route helpers to assist our drivers in delivering home furnishings and other heavy/bulky items in our company vehicles to residential customers in Central and Northern VT, Northeast NY, and Northwest NH. This is a non-driving position.
Typical vehicle is a 12 ft. box van. Minimum age is 18. Criminal background check is performed.
Routes typically start at 8:00am and average 8 to 10 hours. We offer 4 or 5 day workweeks and flexible days off, including optional Saturday and Sunday routes. Routes average 12 stops and typically run between 200 and 300 miles.
Vehicles are preloaded for you. Helper acts as navigator using a GPS and calls customers 30 minutes prior to arrival to confirm ETA and any special requirements. At each stop the helper assists the driver in unloading and delivering items to the customer designated location.
You may carry heavy/bulky items up or down stairs, through doors and hallways, and into one or more rooms. Some will be left just inside the front door or on porches, walkways, and in garages. A small percentage need unpacking and assembly.
This is not a job for those with bad backs or knees! You often exert yourself to the max using a hand truck, dolly, mover’s straps, or only your arms and legs. Moving a 325 pound treadmill down cellar stairs, a 250 pound marble topped vanity up to a second floor bathroom, or a sleeper sofa up porch steps and though a tight door is hard work. You don’t have to be a young gym rat; we have fantastic drivers in their 60’s, brute strength is not the key. The ability to determine the best path, equipment to use, and where to park makes the difference.
At the end of the day you have the satisfaction of a job well done, compliments from satisfied customers, and stories to share about the unique challenges you solved.
Customers rate their delivery experience in followup surveys. We consistently rank in the top 10% nationally amongst other carriers. A big smile and can-do attitude when first arriving goes a long way towards setting the tone and a great customer interaction!
