Video Transcript:
I'm a Driver's Assistant with Sheetz. It's a good company to work for, a good atmosphere. It's very family oriented. Everybody helps each other out when you need help. Everybody's great here. You work 14 hours a night and you get good benefits. First thing I get in here I get the hand carts ready. Get the mailbags ready. Take them out to the assigned truck, wait for my driver to come in, get the paperwork ready and then get ready to depart. When we arrive at the stores I get out, open the back doors, get the ramp out, and start to unload the truck. It's very physical work. You're constantly bending down, running up and down the ramp. It is important to work as a team because the job gets done a lot easier and a lot smoother. They do train you on your job. You'll go with a driver trainer and he shows you what to do and how the job should be done properly. Sheetz wants to train you to their standards so they know they're safe. When you first started working for Sheetz you realize how good of a company they are, how much they treat their employees really well. They're just a great company over all.
