Work experience

Nov 2009Present

Delivery Driver

Flower City Produce

I deliver foodservice products to customers within an 80-mile radius. A typical day for me would be to start around 6:30 am, complete about 12 stops by 1:00 pm and return to the base and deliver more or work on something else. I have regular customers who really appreciate my service and miss me when I take time off.

Delivery Driver

Palmer Food Services

Made regular deliveries to foodservice providers in a 100-mile radius around base location. Delivered processed meat products O-T-R to a 2nd warehouse in Vineland, NJ for a major account in Atlantic City, NJ. I was entrusted with keys and codes for this warehouse and would complete deliveries upon arrival at night to accommodate Federal Hours of Service regulations. Palmer Food Services took over this account, hence they hired me because of my unique experience with the account. I would also stay in Vineland and cover for our delivery manager when he took time off.

Delivery Driver

Leon Kastner Wholesale Meats Corp.

Made regular deliveries to foodservice providers in a 100-mile radius around base location for the first 2 years, while delivering processed meat products O-T-R to a 2nd warehouse in Vineland, NJ for a major account in Atlantic City, NJ. once a week. I was entrusted with keys and codes for this warehouse and would complete deliveries upon arrival at night to accommodate Federal Hours of Service regulations. As the needs of the company progressed, I was required to go there 3 times/week. The company closed and Palmer Food Services took over this account, hence they hired me because of my unique experience with the account. I would also stay in Vineland and cover for our delivery manager when he took time off. This also meant that I was familiar with the entire operation at that facility.
