I worked with this company with various owner drivers and gained alot of transport , freight handling ,technological and interpersonal experience . I also had many opportuntied presented to me including staff training which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Working as a truck driver was always the thing I wanted to do. I learned a lot of things by working in Toll. Most liked thing by me is the reputation of the company which I see every time I go to deliver or pickup something from a customer.
Awesome job, physical and outdoors. I learnt how to instruct, lead and work in a group. Very dangerous if you're not careful as there are a lot of chemicals in the soaps used and huge logging/toll trucks driving in and out of the workplace. Most enjoyable part was being able to get my friends in and getting better every week.
starting at 4am I prepared paperwork for a small fleet of 5 trucks my day was varied from managing the trucks to inventory. customer service. the team I worked with were diverse and fun. the hardest part of this job was always having to answer my mobile even when I was'nt at work
I love to work at day times Monday- Friday and i can work at the weekend as well if i needed I learned to work as a team I managed how to work together as a team Team work all times Heavy lifting See my co-workers with a smile face every day and go home safe to my family
A typical day consisted of self supervised nightshift work moving containerized freight around the North Island of New Zealand, delivering in and out of the Ports of Auckland and Auckland main industrial rail freight yard commencing work at 6pm until finish usually between 4am to 6am. I learned to become more aware of fatigue management and the importance to exercise good work time and domestic time management planning. Management was very supportive. They always provided clear concise instructions with backup plans necessary to perform operations confidently and to meet customer requirements. The work place culture was very professional, staff carried out their duties with great appreciation and support for one another. The hardest most challenging part of the job was when negotiating tight reverse driving in the dark of night with minimal lighting and in heavy continuous rain fall all night long. The most enjoyable part of the job was being self supervised and part of a professional team supportive environment.
Salary remuneration, Professional quality equipment and team work
Working at Toll was a good experience for me. Of all workplaces I have experienced in, working at Toll has been one of the best experiences I have enjoyed working in due to the positive energy flowing & the amount of courage, hardwork & team work every employee has to offer.
I learned how to load pmc and most of the cargo staff. Also the most important thing is team work and how to motivate other team members. Working at toll is not an easy job when it comes to long hours. I get bored waiting for the other units to come so that we can work.
My current experience in warehousing allowed me to grow and learn more things I didn't know about in previous years of warehousing. I enjoy my working here because it has enabled me to look far a field into a more management role. I believe I have all the attributes to begin my professional career in management level.
Difficult to obtain permanency, long service is recommended
I do multiple tasks for others besides my own tasks
i loved my job in New Zealand and management, i only furthered my knowlege within toll company such as courses with in toll. now have relocated to Australia melbourne its very hard t get into australian toll but understandable due to past new zealand workers destroying my chance of getting back in to toll to earn good money for my family but other than that toll is a great place to work.
I am straight forward person and will solve the problem when I met. Toll like a family. Colleagues are friendly. There is always solutions. In the beginning of the month is more relaxed than the end of month. Toll's payment term is the last working day of the month. So in the beginning of the month I normally do the suppliers reconciliation. In the middle of the month I will start prepare my Monthly payment run. It normally takes two weeks to complete 6 Millions payment run. In the end of the month is the payment process. We do it through Internet Banking. The accounts system we are using now is called " Unibis".
Work starts 6:30am. While working i have acquire various skill like time management ,people management and microsoft excel,word ,project and spss and various other tools.people are friendly but long hours of work(65-70) makes job hectic.
freight sorting very fast paced environment. noisy and active with good and challenging duties. loading up vehicles and route was drivers job and to provide key service while maintaining in a timely fashion
sorting out freight for delivery learning to manage time having fun and enjoying a good days work with your mates. discussing how each other was doing in work and personal life made it a very open and friendly place to work for.
