Planters is hiring NUTmobile drivers


If you’re a recent or soon-to-be college graduate and would rather spend the next year traveling the country than looking for a typical 9-to-5 job, Planters Peanuts has an exciting opportunity you may want to check out.

For the third year in a row, Mr. Peanut is looking for a chauffeur to drive him from coast to coast in Planters’ NUTmobile: a 26-foot-long peanut on wheels.

Open to recent college graduates, the Planters Peanutter job includes — among other duties — driving the Planters NUTmobile, representing the Planters brand in media interviews and appearances with local radio, television and digital publications and engaging in consumer interactions while ensuring all attendees and onlookers “have a nutty time.”

You’ll be working alongside people who perform acts of service for their communities at volunteer projects and will be traveling to a new city every week — all while enjoying all the Planters Nuts your heart desires, of course.


To be considered for the job, you must have a bachelor’s degree, preferably focused in sales or marketing, with preferred experience in communications, advertising, public relations or a related field. You also need a valid driver’s license and, of course, must be comfortable with daily road travel.

As part of the team, you should also be outgoing, creative, friendly and have an appetite for adventure. The full-time paid position is for one year from June 2022 through June 2023. You have until Jan. 24 to apply.


If you’d rather drive a giant hotdog around than a peanut, Oscar Mayer hires “Hotdoggers” every year that, if accepted, get a chance to drive their one-of-a-kind 27-foot Wienermobile to travel and “meat” Oscar Mayer fans around the country.

The Hotdoggers are employed as a paid, full-time employee of Oscar Mayer for one year. The gig also includes benefits (or bun-efits, as the company calls them).

While Oscar Mayer doesn’t currently list the dates of the position for 2022, the job is posted on their website.
