What does a typical day of delivering look like for you? My day starts at 8 AM in the heart of traffic, but I always find a way to maneuver through town to make my deliveries on time. It usually starts with a few runs from Sprinkles Cupcakes to various businesses and residential locations. I then have drop offs for many other clients, sometimes even a new client, throughout the day. Some days are busier than others, but every day is different and you never know what to expect.
What do you love most about driving for Dropoff? I’d truly have to say that I love the flexibility that the job gives me in comparison to your standard 8-5 corporate job. I can be out doing deliveries and if I need to stop by home or handle some business real quick, I have the option to do that. I always communicate with the dispatch team to get a feel for the forecast for the day, and it works out beautifully with my family schedule and lifestyle.
What has been your favorite delivery? I don’t really have a favorite. We pickup for a few different clients regularly, so I just try to be professional, on-time, polite, and courteous to all of our clients. You never know who you’re in front of and who you might meet that day!
What's something that most people don't know about you? I’m a foodie. I watch hours of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on my DVR, then I plan my trips around places I want to go eat at and new cities I want to travel to.
