Pros: its work
Cons: all customers seem to work much kinder hours
Arrive at work at 0500 most days, check vehicle, load and complete morning documentation.
I learned that although procedures are set by the company, the loads are often incorrect, cargo straps are often under the freight requiring an unload/reload, the vehicle keys are not always in the correrct place and reported vehicle faults have not been rectified.
Management seem far too busy to remember all that is required.
Co-workers always seem disgruntled, always something they are not happy with.
The hardest part of the job is finding servicable equipment around the yard to complete the day's work safely and efficiently.
The most enjoyable part of the job is 'going home time' knowing you have given the days your best shot
