The hardest part when your new is securing the load FAST as heck because drivers don’t get paid hourly they get paid by footage so they will rush the heck out of you. Me personally I don’t like working like that....I could do it just not that fast like the seasoned vets...
Management was cool ...made it a cool experience.
You do about 4 to 5 deliveries a day each one taking anywhere from 45 min or even less to an hour and a half or so.
Most of the time is on the road in between the deliveries then heading back to the shop picking up your next delivery then off you go.
I would have liked to stay there but I’m positioning myself to be where I want to be in life at this point, pursuing my goals and just working at a place like that isn’t ideal for me because I really don’t like people talking to me disrespectfully just because they are having a bad day and they have been there 15-20 years making it ok. Any job I’ve ever had when I’ve been there a long time and some one was new I went out of my way to make them feel welcome and was patient as they learned the job. It’s not rocket science. But the location I was at had a small tight crew and they are comfortable with each other so who am I to say anything. Those guys know what they are doing, they do it fast and they make BANK. Management is cool too, I was kinda awkward being the only minority there but that’s probably a personal issue than an actual issue at the company. Anyway I’m sure somebody out there is willing to work very hard and make good money...it really is a workout for sure delivering sheets of drywall.
Management...money...paid time off benefits
cut throat, you must have tough skin and not take disrespect personal
