Port Talbot SA12
Glass unit loader
April 1998 to Present
Current position held - Toughened Glass Loader
I have worked in vizor for 17 years and during my time there I have had various positions.
I started as a glass loader which included having a list of customers and quantities and loading them onto a stillage for delivery.
I also deal with customers on a face to face basis as some of our customers come in to collect their orders so have a very good relationship with these customers and have an excellent customer manner.
I also held the position as transport co-ordinator for a period of a year and half as the company were without one during this period.
My duties included totalling customer quantities and dividing these customers into their lorries depending on which part of the country they were going to be delivered too.
I was also responsible for transport tax and mots and booking in any repairs and six weekly inspections, and making sure all vehicles were road worthy
I also was responsible for monies needed for tolls and to make sure they all balanced at the end of each calendar month.
Once a full time transport manager had been put in place I went back as glass loader for the last 10 years. I also went out delivering between west Wales and Devon as and when required doing multi-drop deliveries.
I have recently been moved to another area of the company which involves the loading of units, I have a list of customers and quantities and load them onto stillages to go out for deliveries and also deal with customers on a face to face basis as they sometimes come into collect their orders.
I also hold a counter balance for truck licence which I have held for the last 13 years but this is an in house licence.
My attendance and time keeping during my time at vizor has been first rate.
I have always obliged in working over time as and when required. I work very well as a team member and also very capable of working on my own.
I have worked on my own mostly at vizor and I am very good at problem solving and have a very good communicative skills and get on with everyone I have worked with.
