Diligent Driver

Stanton is a leader in special order upholstered furniture. If you have lived in the northwest for more than a decade, there is a good chance you have owned one of our sofas. We believe stylish, comfortable, and well-made furniture is a cornerstone of a rich and harmonious home. We also believe that buying our furniture at local retailers should be a fun, easy and painless process. Because we sell through local retailers our relationship with the store and their people is central to making this a reality. Our whole company is built around building deep and long lasting relationships with each local retailer by delivering great quality, stylish furniture to them quickly.

Our drivers are the last mile, literally, in our drive to deliver sofas that our customers will value as part of their home. For the stores that we deliver directly to, our drivers are the face of our company and their effort to efficiently and safely deliver our product represent the 300+ people in our company.

Our drivers make day trips to locations all over the beautiful state of Oregon in our well maintained and clean trucks. We DO NOT DO OVERNIGHT TRIPS, you will be home every night.

We have an opening for a rare individual who can bring their accuracy, patience and stamina to drive our trucks to deliver sofas to our customers quickly and safely. You know you are this person if you get energized by accomplishing tasks based on your organization skills. You are strong and able to help load and unload sofas safely and efficiently. This is an ideal job for someone who loves working independently and attending to the details of making deliveries. If you crave constant interaction with people and want to talk to solve problems, this isn’t the job for you.

Do you have a clean driving record and are good at concentrating over long periods of time? Can you demonstrate the ability to work as part of a team of great people? Do you find comfort in having written procedures to follow? Do you pride yourself on being a responsible and conscientious driver? Do you have a working knowledge of diesel engines and vehicles in general?

Here’s the bottom line: We are very picky. We have an opening for the right person to help us make sure our sofas arrive to our customers safely and on time. The person we hire will have the ability to fit into our shipping team and represent the factory well by being helpful and easy to work with for our retailers.
