Yard Supervisor (Former Employee) – Brandon, MB – 7 October 2012
Started with equipment inspections, then picked up the delivery orders and got them loaded on the right trucks for on time delivery.
Assigned the right people for each job required to be done like delivery an order or getting one ready to be hauled out.
I learned to check inventory and reorder as needed along with making sure that the five people under me were kept busy.
The manager was a great guy, wonderful sense of humor. My fellow workers were a great bunch of guys, anything I asked of them they did it without complaining'
The hardest part of this job was trying to keep the customers happy with delivery because sometimes you had traffic backups or truck breakdowns that had to be repaired before they went out again.
The most enjoyable was meeting some new people, made many new friends talking and dealing with them for the delivery of the material they wanted.
they provided the staff with free coffee and the occasion donuts from tim hortons
the delivery of ordered material that kept customers waiting, sometimes that was slow in arriving.
