Decent place to work to keep the bills paid. Weekly pay
Spotter/Truck Driver/Shipper (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL / Louisville, KY – October 25, 2017
As Spotter/Truck Driver/Shipper, my day starts at 6:30 in the morning. Being the only truck driver for the entire plant, I have to service all departments(Shipping, Receiving, Production and Recycling). I requested to start earlier, given the fact that I have to cover all departments as the only truck driver. Request was denied due to strategy...the strategy being that I complete my duties and responsibilities for first shift, and set up second shift before I leave, which may keep me there longer than expected. So, you could say my schedule fluctuates day to day.
By normal standards, my schedule should be 6:30a.m.- 3p.m. (30 min lunch) and two 15 min breaks. There are many times when I can't take my breaks or lunch when scheduled. Honestly, I never know when my day will end, and I never know when I'll have a weekend off. Sometimes they don't tell me if I have to work the weekend or not until Friday.
