I'd normally start each day inspecting my bucket truck, fueling it up before being checked and inspected again on the way out of the gate. Our work area was normally 20 - 30 mins away. We were allowed minimal stops for drinks,snacks, etc. Our supervisor normally circled around us most of the day as we trimmed trees away from power lines.
During my time with this company, I learned much about job safety, CDL vehicle maintainance and mechanics.
My coworkers were enjoyable for the most part. Many had been with the company a long time and had no problem making it known. A definite sense of entitlement with the veterans for the most part. Several others were near rookies but were treated well because of who they knew or were related to within the company.
The hardest part of the job was wondering if I was ever going to progress within the company. I watched others who hadn't been with the company for as long as myself achieve promotions and special treatment.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendships I made while employed there.
