Was this review helpful? Yes No Report Productive with bad management Self Employed (Former Employee) – Greenside, Tyne and Wear – 22 April 2018 Work day started at 3.30am, deliver ready mixed mortar to designated building sites around the North East area and drive within HGV hours. After every delivery I had to wash out the machines. I learnt good communications skills with new building site managers, along with time management skills.It was a solitary job, mainly working along. The hardest part of the job were the hours with little time off. The most enjoyable part of the job was delivering further afield and seeing new areas and meeting new people.
Paying off a new lorry
Working hours, stress and anxiety of fulfilling delivery deadlines
