Typical day at work was completing a variety of financial and procedural transactions for Truck drivers and everyone else. Keeping the store stocked with product and making sure drivers always had hot fresh coffee and a variety of food items. Keeping up with inventory counts.
Your work day depends on the crew. If they are all hardwoking and help each other out, the day will be easy and all assigned tasks will be completed. However, you can bust your bum and still get asked to do more or you told are not doing enough. You are highly disposable. Getting a raise that reflects your work ethic and worth will never happen. The supposed Lead program is essentially a ruse to get you to do management work and hours under the guise of you eventually getting better pay or promotion. One year later you are still considered a cashier but you do management level work with management level stress.
The majority of the Truck drivers were great, your get your jerks but for the most part they are an alright bunch. I learned to respect their occupation and their time. Time is of the essence with Drivers. They only have a certain amount of time to fuel up, get weighted, grab paperwork/permits, send and receive a fax, grab some food/drinks and maybe even grab shower. Get the them back on the roads as soon as humanly possible. Truck drivers and my crew were the only reason I stayed as long as I did.
