Summary -------------------------------------------
[Se habla espanol! Env anos un correo electr nico para mas informacion.]
Our drivers use company vans/trucks to pickup up fruits and veggies and other farm products from around the Puget Sound and bring the products back to the warehouse. These pickups happen on the Monday and Thursday afternoon/evenings. Depending on the season, it can involve lifting and moving heavy boxes of potatoes as well as Instagram-worthy pints of berries. Drivers work with the warehouse team to aggregate and sort the product and then deliver to restaurants, homes, pre-schools, apartments, foodbanks, houseboats, etc. throughout the week.
A dual role of a driver as well as aggregating, sorting, packing, inventory, etc. in the warehouse is a potential option and comes with increased pay.
