What does everybody do for a living?
hahahhahaha omg im glad you aksed. My "test" was in my interview. They asked me what kind of shoes i had on. I did not have steel toes on it was a job interview lol, they gave me some covers and had me pick up 6 big fridges and carry those around at 20 clicks!
I never recived my forklift licsence until almost 2 years in. I couldnt believe they put me on a truck just like that. I had never driven something i had to sit down to use. Id only ever been on an endrider, reach truck and pacer and i could swim faster then those machines.
Then as a new guy they just hammer you with the pressure go faster its okay the faster you go the more you can break this is our moto comes from all the way up.
When i applied i was worried because they wanted experience and i only had about 9 months or so. Then i find out they are hiring students and people who i dont think have even driven a car before. You saw those attachments lets have a kid that has never driven a forklift before be responsible for whipping around 6 fridges.... Yeah they dont last long and then the full timers feel the consequences of their damages. I have been there maybe 2 and a half years. I already have the second highest seniority on my shift.
My son has a severe medical condition that doesnt allow me to be at work everyday or a very reliable worker. If i was able to though i honestly could be the supervisor of this place, not that i would take it.
Since ive started i could not count the general laborers ive seen, supervisors though i have seen 3. My supervisor right meow is a high school dropout, hes good at the job i like him and he knows what hes doing, but it wouldnt have been hard.
If the money wasnt as good as it is id be gonzo.
I stick around for the comedy too!
