Shipper/Receiver/Dispatcher/Driver (Former Employee) – Sussex, NB – 28 January 2014
This business is fast paced, as you deal with many different types of customers. ex: Garages
You have to be focused, and you have many tasks on the go at the same time. You could be picking orders to be delivered to a garage, getting an order ready to be picked up by a courier, or making a delivery if all other drivers were on the road.
The entire management team is "Hands On", and is involved with the day to day operation of this business.
The hardest part of the job was keeping track of where all of the delivery drivers were at any given time, being able to answer questions from management. If you didn't have an answer, you tried to find one.
The most enjoyable part of the job... Meeting the customers, dealing with them on a day to day basis. Knowing that you've been able to do something for them to help their day go a bit better.
