A Day in the Life of a Delivery Driver
In this new economy, bolstered by surging consumer demand, delivery services are taking off. Spee-Dee is certainly no exception! Our locations around the Midwest are rapidly expanding their staff – and delivery drivers are the backbone of our operation. For over 40 years, Spee-Dee’s dependable delivery has been the “driving” force behind our industry-leading customer service and commitment to the community.
Being a delivery driver is certainly no ordinary role. If you are a self-starter and love the idea of an independent work environment in the outdoors, keep reading to discover what a typical day on the route looks like.
An Honest Living Through Honest Work
Delivering for Spee-Dee is about as honest as work comes. You are the face of the company to our customers…and along with this responsibility comes many perks as well.
