Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ...after each trip, and to make out such daily or trip reports of his car as are required. The driver is responsible for the stacking of the load and he must not only know how to do this himself but he must also know how to teach an inexperienced wagon boy. Incidentally it may be said that previous experience as a chauffeur or teamster is of no particular value as training for this kind of work. The boy who has worked as a jmnper is much more desirable as raw material from which to make a driver than either of these two. The boy has had experience on a route and can already stack a load. It is much easier to give him such knowledge as he has not already picked up about the technique of driving than it is to teach a competent chauffeur how to route and stack a load. This opinion is held not only in Cleveland but in other cities as well. The position of driver is looked upon as more or less permanent. Chances of promotion in the department itself are few as there is only one superior position and that is head of the department. This head or Superintendent of Delivery may or may not have a shipping clerk as assistant. The positions of sorter, entry clerk, etc., are of minor importance and give employment to a few young men or boys inside the department. A driver or chauffeur who has ability and good personality may, if he cares to, secure promotion to inside work on the sales force. The wage is from $12.00 to $15.00 and a low per package cost of delivery will, in some stores, secure an addition to this wage in the form of a bonus corresponding to P. M.'s in the sales force.
