Flex drivers must be willing to run both solo and team routes.  Flex drivers are responsible for filling in for drivers who are out sick, on vacation, etc.  Work consists of delivering aftermarket parts (lose package pieces i.e. hoods, bumpers, doors, etc.) to dealerships.  Drivers will be given the keys to unlock the gate/doors at the dealership.  They are responsible for unloading the trailer, scanning in the new load being delivered, picking up returns and locking the dealership back up before heading out.  Drivers must be comfortable maneuvering a tractor-trailer in tight corridors in car lots (primarily in Chicago at night).  This is a more challenging route - the ideal drivers will be comfortable with city driving (Chicago) as they frequent the city often.
