I have spent 16 years working for this company, for me a typical day for me is prepping my walk ready for the day ahead then going out to deliver which usually takes 4 hours to complete, i have learnt how to connect and communicate with my work colleagues and also the members of the public when out on my rounds.
The way that my work place is managed is that i know what jobs need to be done so management let me get on with the work because they know and trust what I'm doing, also the culture of the work place is mixed and we all get on very well with each other.
I would say the toughest part of the job is when it is cold and wet and that I need to focus on the job at hand when these times occur, even though it can get tough the best part of the job is when people acknowledge the work you out into the job, and being appreciated also being able to help people with directions if lost.
Early finishes so more free time throughout the day.
Not mentally challenging enough.
