Good place to work for. The salary is pretty good and the opportunity for overtime is good bumping up the salary a bit. The company is is secure and as long you work hard you have a secure job.
Beginning great job , great pay, wonderful management and everything gets done After a few weeks you get to know ppl and start understanding the snake pit culture your in and how depressed and angry everyone is at BORAL management … (if not the hourly rate BORAL wouldn’t get anyone other than snakes) PPE that’s given is the cheapest you can find and most is inappropriate so useless and when I asked for appropriate PPE was ushered into higher managements office…safety =0 Safety is important as long as you don’t complain and the customers get their product so BORAL can BILL them … safety =0 All inductions are for “insurance lowering premiums” purposes… If your not willing to break the law don’t go there , they need drivers like there’s no tomorrow because it’s a constant revolving door (it’s unbelievable)
I wish I was looked after a lot more , having the kids one weekend , I would have liked to work every second Saturday but didn’t get much overtime since I stopped doing drum cleans , so I think overtime for me was put to a stop but I did drum cleans for 8 years and my body had enough . Paying rent and child support along with bills I couldn’t get ahead in life so I’ve given my two weeks notice and my last day is the 30th of March . I use to work really hard everyday for ten years . I just felt like I should have been looked after alot more
In the interview i was asked if i minded working long hours with Saturdays and if i had scales experience using a Loader? to which i said no. but willing to learn. Over the space of 2 weeks i got a total of 2, 8hr days, and a couple of days off, the rest were 4hr days. All up I made about 4 miscalculations on weight by sprinkling too much gravel or sand sometimes wet, into scales hoppers. After the 2 -3 weeks of this i was terminated because i was too slow. I thought i was doing well? Im not a super fast operator but fairly quick. There was no real coaching on technique, just watch me once or twice and replicate
Honestly one of my best jobs by far, sad to have been fired due to a mistake I made unfortunately. But highly recommended them. You’ll feel very welcome and like you’ve worked there for years right from the start
