A&L Windows Weekly Work Experience

I would arrive at A&L windows before 8 and would be doing factory work that involved me doing very basic factory work. I learned many things in this workplace, they were mainly hands on things such as preparing a fly screen, preparing the base of sliding doors and much more. I also believe I improved my communicating skills in the workplace over the period of the year through working with different people on a weekly basis. My co workers were very cheerful and positive and that helped me get through the day with a positive attitude, I seem to work better in a positive environment. The hardest part of the job would be the repetitiveness of what I was doing it seemed I was doing the same thing for the whole day. The most enjoyable part of doing Work Placement at A&L is that everyone is genuine and easy to get along with.

Pros

Stretching Breaks

Cons

Repetitive Work

Over 7 years mostly building shower screens and robe doors.

I worked over 7 tears at A&L Windows, mostly shower screen department, building shower screens, cutting glass, extrusions, training staff. Occasionally when no shower screen work was needed I would help out with the robe doors. All my 3 referees are from A&L Windows, you will see for yourself how hard, committed to the work I done, how reliable and the quality of my work was always to the highest standard.

Pros

I took pride in my work and all the installers really appreciated all my efforts.

Cons

I left A&L Windows to work full time online in hindsight that was a wrong decision.

Variety and diversity in delivery destinations.

Start time 6:30am. Collect incomplete orders and jockey. Leave factory for first delivery anywhere in Melbourne, Victoria or sometimes N.S.W.I learned to navigate around Victoria efficiently. How to handle windows, deal with builders and record with camera phone howand where items were stacked. Co workers changed from time to time and I learned to work with different personalities and ethnicities.I also learned where were the best places to eat on the road.The hardest part of the job was not knowing what time you would finish daily and if you would be at home or in a motel due to time constraints. But the most enjoyable part was simply being outdoors.

Pros

being outside and lots of overtime available

Cons

not knowing what time you would finish daily, and if you would be at home or in a motel due to time constraints.
