good always looking to improve
Casual Trade Painter (Former Employee) –  wollongong13 October 2014
Arrive at central depot, collect job cards for the day, prioritise which jobs are classified as urgent and offensive and deal with first. Ensure all equipment, materials is on board vehicle that i am driving, make purchase orders for materials required for the next day, always keeping up to date with paperwork, SMDS sheets. I enjoy working part of a team, however also enjoy the challenge of carrying out the work myself, ensuring all is in place. The weather can sometime be the hard part of the job, dealing with extreme heat or even high winds. Most enjoyable part, driving away knowing that i efficiently succeeded the job task.
