I’d say the most challenging part was the dealing with supervisors who act like managers vs supervisors. Not one of the 3 transportation supervisors in Whitby were available to put out fires when fires needed putting out. So it was left to senior drivers to do.
Dealing with limited budgets and project scopes that are continuously changing. Very little transparency and a lot of smoke and mirrors from the senior team means that expectations are not well communicated and the proverbial goal posts are always being shifted. So the most challenging aspect of my role would be maintaining the sense of autonomy, creativity, and passion that I once had for my work. This environment is truly toxic.
Doing your job right even though expectations were changed daily.
Leaning the different products and all the restaurants and shops they deliver to
Dealing with dispatch.
Trying to learn how to do my job to the best of my abilities without any real training. I routinely was made to do “make work” instead of training for my position because someone with more experience is in need of their training.
