Full-Time Over-the-Road Driver

Do you enjoy traveling across the country and meeting new people?  How about an interest in firearms or military memorabilia? If so, this is the position for you!

As a full-time over-the-road driver, you will travel across the country (with a co-driver) picking up collectible firearms and military memorabilia and delivering them safely back to our Rock Island, IL facility. When not travelling for a pick-up, you'll work in our warehouse helping with shipping items or auction set-up.

So what does a typical day look like?  In this position, there is no typical day!  However, you can be: 

  • Working hands on with handguns, shotguns and rifles to ensure they are safely unloaded for transport
  • Driving down the road - or across the country - to pick-up military memorabilia or bladed weaponry.  While you're on the road, all meals, hotel rooms and expenses are paid for by the company!
  • Working in our warehouse helping to ship items to clients, helping to set-up displays for our next auction or completing inventory projects.

How many days will you be on the road?

We requires all drivers to complete one, long trip per month (8-10 days is average, but actual length of the trip varies). In addition, full-time drivers will also take 1-3 shorter trips of 3-5 days per month.  When you're not on the road, “warehouse" days are Monday through Friday from 8a-5p.

To qualify for this role:

  • You're able to obtain an Illinois Class C (Class D2 for IA Residents) driving license (company paid)
  • You're able to pass a DOT physical (company paid)
  • You must possess a valid driver's license with a clean driving record, including no DUI record for the past seven years
  • If you are an Illinois resident, you're able to obtain a FOID card (company paid)
  • You must like money, because we offer some great driving bonus incentives!
