I worked here for over 2 years and i have to say there were a lot more good days than bad.
Theres a good set of lads here on the road and in the depot, and when you need help when out on the job its a phone call away.
If i needed a certain day off management would always do their best to accommodate me, no probs, best to give as much notice as poss though,swings and roundabouts.
Adhere to the procedures and you will be fine, days can be long, and vary with different runs, depot tends to put you on runs you know which is good, you will get quicker as you learn it, job can be heavy so if you are a wet lettuce this wont be for you.
Equipment also reliable.
You will meet some great people doing this job, i enjoyed it.
Work less days per week
Traffic/No set finish time.
