Driver Helpers

Help Out and Cash In

As a Driver Helper, you’ll ride along with a Package Delivery Driver in our famous brown trucks and help get packages of all shapes and sizes exactly where they need to be. It’s a lot of in and out of the truck, making deliveries and greeting customers. Helpers do not drive the brown truck. This seasonal role is a lot of work but also a lot of fun—this might be the busiest time of the year for us, but it’s also full of festive cheer and happy faces.
