Route Delivery Driver / Merchandiser
***Currently offering a $1000 sign-on bonus!***
Crafty is looking for a Delivery Specialist for our Chicago market. This role is based out of our Carol Stream warehouse and will make deliveries throughout the Chicagoland area with a main focus on downtown Chicago.
Your goal each day is to safely complete your delivery and merchandising route while providing best-in-class client service. You’ll start your day at the warehouse completing the appropriate safety and product checks before heading out on your route. Your route will feature between 5-10 stops depending on the day and route. After arriving at the client site you will safely park and unload your vehicle and then proceed to their space to begin merchandising and inventory process. You will merchandise the front of the house, making sure all products are in good condition and aesthetically pleasing, matching the established planogram agreed upon with the client. You will also complete cleaning and basic service on coffee equipment, water machines, and kegerators. After a light cleaning of the space you will turn your attention to the storage areas and review remaining inventory, complete an order for the next delivery, and summarize any notes from your visit in our industry leading proprietary operations app. You will then proceed to your next location and complete a similar process. Once all your client stops are done for the day you will return to the warehouse to unload, clean your vehicle, and provide any relevant handoff notes to your supervisor.
