Auction Set-up Position

We are working to enhance our Auction Setup Team w/ more excellent people. We are hungry for positive team members who enjoy working hard and being engaged with our customers. Our Auction Setup Team works daily in a high-paced environment. When everyone is working together, the day can be easy, smooth, and highly rewarding. Our business has a strong connection to our customers. We are fortunate that many purchase from us repeatedly. One aspect that makes us a preferred option for our customers is our ability to load a lot of material quickly and sometimes creatively. This greatly reduces the time investment that customers need to make during the loading process. Our Auction Setup Team plays a vital role in the success of our business as well as, the customers enjoying a positive purchase experience.

Scope of Team’s Responsibilities: The Auction Setup Team consists of 2 to 4 people that perform the primary function of loading customers after they have made their Auction Purchases. In order to perform this service, we operate several different types of forklifts, as well as, doing some old fashion physical loading. We provide our customers with two loading options: either at our facility in Bainbridge, NY, or at “Satellite Locations” in the northeast that we travel to. We do operate all year long and in all weather conditions. We load our customers on an appointment system, which helps us control the flow of people showing up to load and it is of greater convenience for the customer. The Auction Setup Team preps for appointments by gathering all the purchases and grouping them by customer and appointment time in advance for the customer. This team also performs other responsibilities in order to aid other teams in prep work for tagging, staging, loading, and unloading of tractor-trailers for shipment.

Expectations: In order to be successful in this team, you will have to be a good communicator, have a strong positive attitude, and be willing to hustle. We are looking for people committed to ending their day, based on the completion of daily goals, rather than punching a time clock. Candidates without a driver’s license and not willing to commit the travel component will not be considered.

Day to Day with Us: A typical workday begins at 8 am and ends at 4:30 pm with a ½ hour lunch. Because we are a deadline business, we sometimes have to stay late to finish work in order to meet our deadline. When Traveling to Satellite locations, our team typically leaves on a Tuesday afternoon, arrives Wednesday morning at the Auction site at 7 am to unload trucks, and leaves at approximately 6:30 pm. On Thursday the team again arrives at 7 am and loads customers until 3:30 pm. After that they pack up their tools and drive home, typically that is a 2 to 4-hour drive. On the weeks with travel, the team typically works a 4 day week, and on weeks without travel, they work 5 days. We do operate in a fast-paced environment that is difficult for some, while others love and get excited about the hustle.
