Delivery Assistant (AM)
Crafty’s mission is to help companies craft better workplaces. We work with offices to elevate happiness by providing snacks, beverages, alcohol, and cool happy hour events! When we first launched on December 1, 2015, our business was a craft beer marketplace that delivered delicious, small-batch local craft beers to offices throughout the city. We have since evolved into a food, beverage, and events management platform for offices in Chicago. Some of our biggest name customers are Google, Uber, Yelp, Salesforce, Trunk Club, WeWork, and Coyote Logistics! From hot coffee to cold brew coffee, from kegs of craft beer to bottles of Bud Light, from LaCroix to Coke Zero, from coffee cups to plastic silverware, and from fully stocked office kitchens to poppin’ events and tastings, we offer a truly comprehensive product portfolio.
We are seeking a dedicated, hard-working Delivery Specialist (CDL preferred) to join our delivery team. Delivery Assistants are the faces of our company, and they are the human element of our service and one of the most important roles at Crafty. Some of the items our Delivery Assistants will deliver are kegs, cases of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, cases of snacks, supplies, produce, dairy, and everything else that can be consumed in an office! Every morning from Monday through Friday, our Delivery Operations Manager will provide you with today's routes and Delivery Logs for each client delivery destination. Our warehouse is in Carol Stream, and you will pick up the truck there, drive it into the city, and deliver at various client sites mainly in the Loop, River North, and West Loop. After all of your stops are done, you will drive the vehicle back to our Carol Stream warehouse. + Start time: 4:30am + Stop time: 12:30pm or 1:30pm Equipment Provided: + We will provide you with a vehicle, and we will be responsible for maintaining proper and current insurance. + Dollies for deliveries will be provided on behalf of Crafty. + Wrenches and other tools for CO2 swaps will be provided by Crafty. + No experience with kegs necessary. We will provide training! You will need an Illinois State Driver's License. If you move further through in the interview process, we will require an MVR from you to proceed!
+ Focused on great customer service: We are in the business of customer service and personality is everything. We will work at all costs to make our customers happy and to deliver the greatest experience they can have. Such dedication to our customers requires a unique level selflessness and care. + Not afraid of physical labor: We deliver heavy goods, and a lot of it. To be able to deliver all of these items day on a daily basis will require someone who is particularly physically fit. You must be able to lift 160 pounds. + Hard working: There will be days where we have a light number of deliveries, and there will be (many more) days where we have a crazy day of deliveries that require us to go back-and-forth throughout the city at rush hour in highly trafficked areas under very tight deadlines. You hustle because that's just how you work. + A team player: We are a startup with the mentality that no job is too big or too small for us. We love people who jump at the chance to help out their teammates. + Positive: This is a tough job, and the right person for this job will find ways to stay positive when everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.
This is a full-time role, and you will be classified as a W2 employee (not a 1099 independent contractor which means that Crafty will cover your payroll taxes for you!) The compensation package that we offer comes from two sources: 1. Salary: You will be awarded a guaranteed hourly rate of $15/hour for your first year of employment. You will also receive a generous amount of paid time off. 2. Healthcare: Crafty provides a $330 monthly healthcare stipend to be used on our medical, dental, and vision plans. We will provide more details on health care coverage during the interview process.
