A typical day at Macdonals Transport would consist of exiting drivers,following up of existing queries and dealing with loads of filling. I learned a lot at the company and about myself. Maintaining a training record was the one thing I had no clue on when I first started there and then I had to teach myself what its all about and the importance of it. The work culture are very relaxed and everyone are like a big family. The hardest part of my job would be searching for documents and closing IOD cases. The most enjoyable part was that I get to engage with a lot of different people on a daily bases.

The hardest part of the job is to do 3 persons jobs and get paid 1 salary. Start at 7H00 in the morning and work till 7H00 at night earning 8 hours pay per day, is not easy but do-able. No overtime is paid and you work seven days a week. At the end of the day it is a job and put food on the table for your family. I have enjoyed my time at the company and got to learn a lot about transport but salary wise it was too much. Trnsport is not for "sussies".
Pros
working through luch
Cons
long hours

Plan your day and stick to the plan at all costs it will affect the next day or plan.I have learned to respect other people and cultures over the past 20 years The hardest part of any Job is to let people go .Respect other people and they will respect but do not get fooled, eliminate a problem or a problem person as soon as possible, The most enjoyable part is to give some credit where credit is due and when targets or goals have been reached Team work no other way
Pros
Incentive Schemes

A typical day at work starts at 07:00am, and finishes past 20:00pm in the evenings, every second weekend as well. Every second weekend I work, without overtime, or time and a half. Unfortunately we also dont have leave days. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I get to work in Logistics, as this is my passion.
Cons
No overtime or time and a half

I enjoy working at MacDonald's Transport. It is an challenging experience every day as no day is the same as the previous. As every day is different from the previous you are in the position to learn something new everyday.

hard work and dedication was vital because I would be away from my wife and kids for a week or 2 and have 2 or days at home for rest. I travelled long distances which made me suffer from fatigue but also taught me the need to listen to my body. I would stop and rest whenever I feel tired and take power naps when feeling really sleepy. I had a very good relationship with my co-workers as and my management as I am a easy going and friendly person who understands and tolerates different personalities.
Cons
long hours
