Cons: 14-16 hour days, management wanted us to fudge on the logbooks to get more miles in each day
I left a good OTR driving job because I wanted to have more time at home. I interviewed with Gardner for a local job, and I was offered a local job. After orientation, they put me into a regional position.

Service Coordinator - Helpdesk (Former Employee), Denver, ENG – January 10, 2014
I continued to learn 'tit bits', but moreover, taught the company and its customers more, through experience. My co-workers could have been more helpful - but we were all under pressure to deliver, so perhaps the same could be said of me? The hardest part of the job was being 'first contact', verbally, or on the phone, 60/65 % of my working day, but – more... only 40 % of my output. Therefore, to do my job 100 %, I perhaps should have only spent 40 % (max) of my day on the phone. A typical day, briefly - Answer the phone - deal with, not pass on the call!! Estimate, resource parts, allocate Engineer, or advise on customer self repair, or supply technical data. In addition, to arrange contracted servicing within the limited boundaries of breakdowns. Most gratifying? Customers calling/mailing back to say THANK YOU. Pros & Cons will have zero rating, as both could have been better before worse. – less
