Forklift operator (Former Employee), High Level, ABMarch 18, 2013
Pros: overtime
Cons: alcholol and drug abuse
I went from a labourer using a shovel, to running a 300,000 dollar forkilift. We would lift the bundles of wood at a time, around the hieght of a house. Tolko taught me a lot of things, from hard work ethic, to loyalty. I just really wish they were safer, there was a lot of alcohol and drug abuse in the yard amungst the operators. I felt it would be – more... safer for me to thank you for the employment, but i have to leave. – less
