Drivers are at the core of Merrill Distributing, delivering food service and convenience store items to hundreds of customers every week. Our drivers come from all walks of life, from farming, military service and manufacturing, to right out of high school and technical college. They aren't interested in the lifestyle and the extensive time away from home of an over-the-road driver. While many of our drivers live close to Merrill, some come from as far as Wausau.
Our drivers usually get three days off each week and typically finish the day by 3-4pm, giving you time to spend with family and friends.
Our drivers get to know their customers well. Some of our drivers have been running their routes for over 30 years, with many of the same customers. Our drivers are as important to our customers as they are to Merrill Distributing, helping them solve problems and be successful. Several of our drivers have moved into sales positions over time!
Merrill Distributing has been delivering great products to our customers almost since our first day as a chocolatier back in 1912. Merrill Distributing began their own deliveries in 1915, with the addition of their first delivery vehicle. A lot has changed over the years but not our commitment to be the distributor of choice for our great customers across Wisconsin and Michigan's UP.
We run late-model straight trucks that are well maintained. Last February our trucks were on the road and we kept our customers happy even during the severe cold snap when the Post Office was closed!
In addition to full-time opportunities, we also have opportunities for part-time drivers.
Merrill Distributing is independent and third generation family owned with a long (over 100 year) history of growth. Our customers are also primarily independent family owned enterprises and we proudly support our customers on their growth journey.
