Typical day at work greeting collegues at work. I have learnt how to be more confident with sharing my ideas. I have also learnt alot alot of different skills. Management from the beginning was very different from what I was use to. I don't usually have much contact with the Managers but this job I got to speak with them daily. The workplace culture is very friendly and family oriented. The hardest part of the job was trying to cover for people that were on holidays or sick all at the same time. Saying that was a real challenge trying to do my own work and cover other jobs at the same time. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people. I really enjoy working with alot of different people within the Company.
Pros
Free Lunch only meeting monthly targets
Cons
Overtime

Fitness is required to be able to do the job to the best of your ability. Meeting different people and forming relationships with them through customer interaction is a big help in this sort of job

At New Zealand Couriers the most enjoyable part was getting to meet alot of people in the community and also it was a job that keeps your fit. The hardest part of the job was the early starts.

Worked with this company for 6 years and loved every minute of it. This was great way of meeting new people and knowing that your satisfying your customers and nothing was ever to achieve once you have a drive for success.

this was just work with dad for extra money. i learnt to seperate parcels from local Auckland parcels from other parts of new zealand. the management in the workplace was good they would come out of the office every 30 minuets to check on the workers and see if we are alright and fit to work. the hardest part of the job was around closing time because that was when all the companies pushed all their packeges out to their drivers and bring it back to the garage and we would sort them out to the right places.

A day at work in this industry requires one to be fit, strong, healthy and very understanding. you must be willing to work long hours handling and sorting freight of different weights, use a scanner pager and phone while on the road and in the depot, dealing with queries via management and customers. one must be able to work within a time frame and a very cultural work place.
Pros
gaining skills
Cons
be willing to work long hours (e.g) 4am to 6.45pm) and work 6 days a week

safe, you need your visor and your steel cap boots before you even start with your security badge before you even get into the gates to be open.
you meet a lot of different people, but other than that its all team work

- Typical day at work consisted of packing a variety of large and small boxes, varying in weights from very light to very heavy. Into specific sections and areas. Freight handler.
Mostly all i learned her was a better New Zealand area Knowlage, no i know most of the north island as i managed North auckland area as well as central north island, and also the wellington area.

- Management was not the best,

- most of my co workers were very good, however it felt like they never did work and you did the work for them.. just because they where full timers. Hence management was not good.
Pros
Money came weekly
Cons
Extremely bad for back
