Have had to drop what I was doing in order to attend a urgent matter / service for a customer both near or far distance. Quickly learned to work smarter. Management were fair & reasonable most of the time. Good mix of nationalities & good culture environment. Hardest part would be increasing quantity levels with textiles during peak season being public holidays, summer season including short weeks as this meant having to produce, deliver / pick up 2 days worth in 1 day etc. Most enjoyable part of the job for me would be meeting a great range of people, building relationships. Seeing & learning more of regional areas, also being my own boss as a delivery service person. The greatest thing was, given the opportunity.

The worse job I ever had. Wouldnt recommend working there. Manager cares about sales from you and not much else. Best thing about the company is when you leave and go to a different job.

Busy lifting linen and mats most of the morning. Alot of driving around South Canterbury.
I learned alot about Timaru and the sourrounding areas.

Management above us we were just a number.[being honest}.

My co workers were great we had a lot of fun and everyone got along well. I also had agreat rapport with all my customers, who i often stayed around to have a chat.

The hardest part was beginging to be the heavier lifting. I enjoyed being out each day on my own in charge of myself long drives as far as Otematta.
Pros
beautiful weather
Cons
raining windy days
