8:30 start. Find your van keys, search for your van, could be parked anywhere! Get a run, load up the van, check it again, make certain everything's correct and off you go. You soon learn to really check your loads, no-one is perfect and mistakes must be prevented. Not much time for a chat with colleagues, parts are always required NOW. The Company gives the impression of "flying by the seat of its pants" not always appearing organised but we are a team, we all help each other and everything gets done. The hardest part of the job, if there is one, is juggling the vans around to keep everyone on the move when we have breakdowns, and, for me, the companies who require commercial parts. Its a bit heavy for me, but that aside its all enjoyable. We have built up such a good relationship with our Customers that if a part is late, we apologize, they forgive us (for the most part) and its more again tomorrow. I walk away at 5:00 and don't give it another thought that day apart from to tell the funny bits.
So, why do I want to leave? That's because my previous job was very mentally taxing and whilst this is giving my brain a rest, I fear it may go to mush if I don't take action soon.
