It's a good company. They are willing to train employees for other positions and promote from within first.
A typical day in the beginning. I arrive to work, strap on the safety harnesses and pull the orders for delivery. Load the trucks, verifying each and every item on the list.
After the trucks left. I would then go to aid others in unloading tires and auto parts and putting them into the correct bins.
Once I started driving one route I had to learn others due to other factors.Eventually, I learned all the City routes within 80 miles of the Nashville area. Because of this I was able to train new drivers on the safest and quickest routes. Training new employees on the use of Cherry Pickers, Forklifts(Standard and pincher), Inventory and Customer Service.
Eventually, The Upper Management decided to bring in a few people to make it run more efficiently. A new software was used to make the routes run more efficiently.
Eventually, drivers just made deliveries and Warehouse workers worked the warehouse. Fortunately, I knew both and could understand when things didn't happen as expected or when the part was not available.
