It's a comfortable work atmosphere. Hard work is required.
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – May 7, 2013
Having to come in with a plan to get certain things accomplished for that day is the first priority. Checking out the delivery board to see how to map out the schedule between deliveries, service calls, reposessions, replenishing the showroom floor, refurbishing merchandise, as well as lunch. Consulting with sales associates, management, and other drivers to make sure that we are all on one page. As the day goes on many different variables can come into play, as in picking up payments, unexpected service calls and reposessions. Because it is such a comfortable work environment, everyone gets along, jokes are passed and told throughout the day, as long as the work is not interferred with and finished on time.
Once you've learnded the ropes and gotten use to how everything is done and operates, you are given the freedom to work as you please with no one hovering over you, you might have to go out into the field alone, but as long as you are confident in what you are doing, then you will be entrusted to the task at hand.
There are no health benifits, and there is rarely any time for an outside life, because since this is a service provided to the customers, it may require longer hours than scheduled with no overtime pay.
