As a Furniture Delivery Driver (Delivery Associate) with Room & Board, you're not just a "delivery" person. You're a confident professional who takes great pride in building rapport with our customers and serving as a strong brand ambassador of both our products and reputation.
You'll work with a delivery partner (two-person delivery teams) to deliver a variety of beautiful, well-constructed home furnishings to the homes and businesses of customers in the Chicago, IL area. Prior to departing for your deliveries, you may support merchandise quality and product staging as items are prepared for delivery. You focus equally on safety and a job well done.
You'll work a Tuesday - Saturday schedule from 6:30 a.m.to 3:00 p.m. with occasional paid overtime.
Location: 2525 West 22nd Street Oak Brook, IL 60523
You're athletic - including core strength, agility and stamina. You enjoy the freedom of working outside the confines of an office and appreciate the challenge a variety of experiences each day brings while working with customers in their homes and businesses.
You're an effective communicator who also values the need to appropriately over communicate. You pay close attention to details. If issues arise, you're innovative and quick to resolve them. You appreciate being empowered to solve problems using your own discretion and making things right for the customer.
You're empathetic and sensitive to being in a customer's home or business. You approach each unique customer with care and agility and feel a great sense of satisfaction in creating an exceptional delivery experience. You take the utmost care working safely and handling product with attention to detail.
You bring a great sense of camaraderie and appreciate the close relationships you'll develop with your delivery partners. You value a professional work place where you work in collaboration with your peers and the broader team.
Delivering furniture requires a great deal of stamina; consequently our Furniture Delivery Drivers take great pride in staying in shape and working safely. To successfully perform this role, you must be able to drive a 24-foot box truck (training provided) and carry heavy items with the assistance of your Delivery partner and/or proper lifting equipment. Additionally, you'll be open to being cross-trained in other roles and understand at times (typically to cover vacations, etc.) you'll be asked to work in other warehouse-related roles throughout the delivery center. A pre-employment physical will be conducted along with a Department of Transportation (DOT) drug screen and safe driving record.
