Truck Driver
Truck Driver (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABNovember 25, 2013
Pros: i lost over 30 lbs in one year :)
Cons: management
It was the one Job that kept me in great shape, lots of heavy lifting on a regular basis. My co-workers were great! They had good trucks which were well maintained thanks to us. The management sucked though, they did everything backwards. From what I hear, the management was restructured after I left.
