Typical day at work: start around 6 am and drive to multiple service locations and perform routine maintenance on water and ice vending machines, including collecting and securing all monies.
I leaned (self taught) how to maintain, diagnose and repair in store bagging ice machines and was considered as very proficient, I also learned basic plumbing and electrical diagnosis and repair.
Management in my district was very demanding with below average support of the basic parts, supplies and training to complete your job properly.
I feel I had a very good report with my co-workers as we routinely would communicate and support each other.
The hardest part of my job was the lack of management support and below average earnings.
The best part of this job was you are basically in charge of your whole day, many days out doors, contact on a regular basis with customers and the public and many hours of driving in various conditions which I like.
