Courier Jobs

Courier Job Overview

Couriers, also known as drivers and delivery men or women, transport packages and supplies from one location to the next. In larger cities and towns with buildings located close together, Couriers may walk on foot or use a bicycle to deliver packages. Those living in smaller towns and more rural areas often use trucks, vans and cars. Workers follow directions given to them by the company or provided by a GPS unit, and they need to find the right address and request a signature before handing over a single box. Couriers may work in specialized fields and deliver medical supplies, legal documents or other items.

Courier Job Education Requirements

The main requirement for most Courier jobs is a driver's license. Those using bikes for transportation usually only need a state issued ID or another type of ID with a photograph on the front. Most employers also require that Couriers have a high school diploma or a GED before beginning work. Couriers must be in good shape and capable of carrying heavy boxes, climbing stairs and spending long hours in a vehicle. They also need to have good communication skills, the ability to read maps and follow directions, patience and the ability to handle complaints.

The job outlook for Couriers is poor. With an estimated rate of growth of just 5 percent, statistics show that these positions will grow at a slower than average rate.

Courier Job Salary Information

The median salary among the top 10 percent of all Couriers is $50,000. Most Couriers receive an hourly salary and can accept tips from those they deliver packages to. Postal Worker jobs and Freight jobs share some similarities with Couriers, though those working in those jobs usually cannot accept tips.
