Driver's Helpers - Detroit
Posting ID: JP-002024903
Great Lakes Wine & Spirits is looking for General Labor/Driver Helper employees to assist their GLWAS driver's in the delivery of their products at the Detroit facility.
These employees will be responsible for assisting the driver by following the below day to day functions:
- Ride along with the driver on daily delivery routes.
- Assist the driver by loading and unloading wine and liquor on/off the truck at the warehouse and at each stop.
- Physically lift 50 - 65 pound cases of wine/liquor and stock them onto shelves in the warehouse and pallets to load onto trucks.
- Handle two-wheel carts by rolling the carts up and down the ramp onto the truck(cart could be 100-150 pounds with cases on it).
- Stack products in back of the truck per customer delivery order.
- Candidates may have some interaction with the customers (grocery stores, convenient stores, restaurants).
Candidates will assist in loading the trucks first thing in the morning, and then head out on the route with their driver. Their route may last between 8-12 hours straight depending on how many stops they are making that day.
6:30am start time - end of route (majority of the time their day will end between 5 - 6pm).
Candidates need to know that they MUST be on time at 6:30 am for their shift even though they may not leave the warehouse until 8:00 am. During those first few hours they will be loading the trucks with merchandise, assigned a partner, and/or assisting with whatever warehouse duties may need to be completed before the routes.
There may be days when routes are slow so not everyone will be on a delivery route for the day. GLWAS will always give them the option to clean inside/outside the warehouse if they are not needed on the routes. Candidates need to be aware that not every day will they get assigned to a driver and it is their choice to stay working to get paid, or leave with no pay for that day.
They should expect some Saturday work as well. There will be Saturday's that are MANDATORY and scheduled during the week on the calendar where everyone can see. If they miss a MANDATORY Saturday they will be termed.
If any days/hours are changed throughout the contract it will be posted on their news board within the warehouse above the time clock so all employees can see the changes.
Additional Skills & Qualifications:
1). At least 1 year of general labor experience in a warehouse/distribution type setting.
2). Ability to lift/push/pull 50 - 65 lbs on a consistent basis throughout the day, as they are loading and unloading the trucks with dolleys.
3). Ability to bend, twist and squat for the entire duration of their shift because of the lifting.
4). Must be able to work long hours and until needed each day, as there is no set finish time.
5). Impeccable attendance/reliability verified by references
6). Ability to work in all weather elements
