I have received much support and have watched it given to others too and so comment this company not just on work ethos but on the ethics it promotes to employees and treats them like people.
As everyone in the current climate- this company is not making billions so cannot offer extreme wages but they do offer job security and do try to accommodate the employees needs.
One of the best things I have personally found is that they try to get employees to observe the law whereas many other companies I've worked for do quite the opposite.
The company has the family feel and really does try to support the employee which is shown within the workforce as those that have been with the company have the same ethics- everyone tries to assist in the ways they can and create a healthy working atmosphere.
I applaud the efforts made by staff and employees!
A typical day could be 5hrs of driving, a little unloading, waiting to be loaded, unloading and general preparation.
Other days could see you drive nearly ten hours and work a 14 to 15hr shift.
The most enjoyable part for myself is knowing the trucks are maintained by experienced mechanics that will not allow a truck out if there is a problem - and they are friendly.
The peace of mind knowing the truck is safe, the company do not expect you to break the law and that there is a friendly atmosphere at work can mean a lot.
I only starred the salary and work life balance with 4 stars because 'I' personally want more yet find a balance difficult yet other people are different and the job suits them; to put this into perspective I have to say that whilst doing an online degree the balance was absolutely perfect so anyone with another string to their bow- another occupation could work with the patterns offered.
Hours are variable, Start times are variable (nature of the business)
