We’re growing again and an elusive delivery driver position is now available! This is a part time position with the potential to grow into a full-time role as long as you do well.
As a driver, you’re the face of our company to our customers. You’ll have the distinct pleasure of delivering baskets of curated organic produce to homes and apartments around the GTA. It’s a challenging job, but a great position for the right candidate. Read on to see if you might be a good fit.
Our starting rate is $17.00 per hour (+ discount on organic produce) + benefits after 3 months. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with nice people and help build and grow a nice organization that you can believe in. Drivers who excel at this job are recognized with pay raises too. Our current pay range goes up to $22 per hour, depending on ability.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Planning routes and delivery times
Driving conscientiously throughout Toronto
Following instructions carefully and accurately
Making good decisions based when different variables come up
Farm pickups (usually optional – before shifts or on weekends)

Be physically fit and enjoy being active
Self-directed: Able to work at a high standard with minimal supervision (and within time limits)

Able to lift 30 – 40 lb’s bins (full of delicious organic produce)

Our drivers have their own individual routes depending on the day of the week (there’s usually only slight changes from week to week). There are many deliveries, but the areas are usually fairly condensed. You’ll get to meet lots of happy people who are excited to receive their food.
We usually start our drivers at 2-3 days a week and – if they’re doing a great job and they’re enjoying it – we add on more days (if they want more days). Starting time is usually 12:30pm (this can range from 11:30am to 1pm depending on the time of year and the day). Our drivers usually finish by 8-8:30pm (deliveries are usually done before 7pm).
