William Temple House Seeks Thrift Store Truck Driver

The Opportunity

William Temple House (Portland, OR) is seeking a full-time truck driver/cashier.  This position will require flexibility and willingness to participate in both aspects of the thrift store, from the behind-the-scenes work of the driver to the public face of the front counter.  All profits from the thrift store benefit the William Temple House, also in NW Portland, which provides mental health and social services to underserved populations in Portland. Truck Drivers work as part of a team to maximize daily sales.  Our Drivers provide excellent customer service for our Donors during the scheduling and pick up of donated merchandise. The Drivers deliver the merchandise to the Store, move it to the appropriate processing or selling area and price furniture items.

Founded 55 years ago, WTH is a beloved nonprofit organization that restores hope and renews strength in individuals and families in a welcoming and respectful atmosphere. With low- and no-cost mental health counseling, a food pantry, and faith-neutral spiritual care, we lend a helping hand to Portland’s most vulnerable populations. We serve the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. A social enterprise, our thrift store, provides revenue to support our operations.

Our organization is full of passionate people who do important work, appreciate each other, and have fun.
