Full Job Description

Please note, this position included direct-store delivery, counting and loading product, and issuing credits. Applicants with DSD, Route Sales, Retail, Management, or LTL experience will be highly considered.
School bus drivers are also encouraged to apply, as our work occurs during summer / Christmas breaks.

TNT Fireworks is currently hiring seasonal returns drivers to deliver consumer fireworks orders beginning mid-June, and pick up unsold product from our FL and GA grocery and retail stores over a 2 - 3 week period beginning July 5th.
During returns, drivers will be assigned a territory and route of stores to pick up the unsold products from. As a back door (DSD) vendor, they must count, sort, and box returns, to be transported in compliance with DOT hazmat requirements. Accurate return quantities are vital to ensure proper credit to each store.
Expectations are to work 10+ hour days M-F and partial day Saturday, with 34 continuous hours off duty over the weekend.
This position involves flexibility and works beyond just driver responsibilities. Applicants must be motivated and perform job duties that could be in hot, cold, or wet environments.
Top workers may earn the opportunity to travel to other states once our territory is complete. Most of our drivers are provided the opportunity to return to us each New Year’s and July seasons.
Key responsibilities:
  • Properly count or verify with DSD Receiver, Claims associates, or store management quantities of each item for credit, and enter them into a tablet.
  • Once counts are complete, sorting products based on three categories in separate pallets in the truck, properly packaged and blocked/braced in accordance to D.O.T. hazmat/company requirements.
  • Communicate daily with office support staff to ensure the product is available and ready for pickup when you arrive at the stores.
  • Must be professional as a company representative under pressure.

Qualifications and Skills:
  • Class B CDL w/ hazmat will be required, but any Class B drivers are encouraged to apply and obtain hazmat endorsement by June. Up to $150 in training/fees for obtaining hazmat may be reimbursed upon successful completion of the season.
  • Must be able to lift up to 40+ lb and able to reach above head to properly stack and secure the load. No more than three moving violations in three years / two within the past year.

Benefits
  • Pay for deliveries vary by route/mileage, but returns average $1100 - $1600 per week during the two to three period. Returns are paid on a per-store basis, so motivated drivers have additional opportunities.
  • Upon completion, $25 daily per diem is reimbursed to cover meals and personal expenses. A company credit card is provided for fuel and hotels.
