Car Valeter (Former Employee) – Poole – 3 August 2018
As a car valeter you are required to clean cars and drive them to and from the allocated parking space.
I was working with a team of three to four but had to collect and clean cars individually. Sometimes I would assist others who were a bit slow. So common sense and using your initiative is vital.
The management was good but very busy so you wouldn't seem them very often. You're left on your own most of the time unless the manager needed to see you or have a quick talk.
The hardest part of the job was to clean to customer satisfaction within at least 30 minutes for each car. Sometimes they were very unclean and therefore hard to work faster. Nevertheless, it does improve on one's time management skills.
What I enjoyed most about this job is that you're outside all day, you have a one hour break for lunch, and get to drive some nice cars around.
The benefit of doing this job is that time passes very quickly.
In general, I find that gaining experience in a different role allows you to develop new and existing skills further, which you might've not realised you had in you before.
Outside all day and hours of work quickly go
Must work extra fast depending on the dirtiness of the car, which can take a little longer to complete.
