Packing & Delivery Specialist APPLY NOW

Essex, N.Y.

To be a successful Champlain Peony Company packing & delivery specialist you must have excellent skills in time management and enjoy both driving and interacting with customers in their places of business. The Packing & Delivery Specialist provides the final step in the very long and costly processes of production and their ability to understand the nuances of packing and shipping is key to the overall success of building the business. It is pointless to spend precious resources in growing material to a salable state only to see it not make its way to the customer in satisfactory condition. The Packing & Delivery Specialist provides our last quality check and has the authority to question the sale of products that they feel do not meet the highest standards of the Company. Additionally, the Packing & Delivery Specialist is a sales and marketing representative and provides an extra level of service to their regular customers by “spot selling” products that they choose to carry along with them while out for delivery. The Packing & Delivery Specialist will earn commission on these sales. The Supervising Packing & Delivery Specialist reports directly to the Business Manager. All other Packing & Delivery Specialists report to the Supervising Packing & Delivery Specialist.

  • Safety is your primary responsibility, both for yourself and for others;
  • Interpreting sales contracts and orders and communicating availabilities to fulfill these contracts and orders to the sales associate generating them;

  • Assisting any customer who is in need by focusing attention, expertise, and genuine interest in our products and services to facilitate a positive transaction;
