Driver (Former Employee) – Christchurch, Canterbury – 7 April 2016
Drove many different trucks all around Christchurch so I was very flexible every day. Learned how to operate gantry,hook and reload trucks. Also did deliveries of domestic household bins in a box truck and dealt with customers face to face. Got on well with all my co workers and management.
After 11 proud years in my former tenure I have always had the reasoning, commitment and assistance of my former Coordinators, Management and Sales Teams.Very much an inclusive and equal opportunity company with some scope for advancement in what can be a trying and challenging environment.
Good working conditions, always observing H&S initiatives
I was in a sales-based cold role and the job was restructured after only 18 Months. My sales leads were put daily into a pipeline so once I took redundancy I wasn't really required.
A typical day consisted of driving around looking for potential business, making contact and updating into the sales system. Then going out to convert the client into a customer and working ethically through contract terms and dates.
Workplace culture from the 'old timers; was great. It's the new sales management that was bought in that changed things . The hardest part of the job was the initial training on the trucks the called for a 4am start to be on the truck by 5am.
Most enjoyable part waws the bonuses and the food shouts.
