For the guys who changed tires. How many pounds does a fully inflated tire weigh?

For the guys who went on relays. Did you have to do a pre trip and post trip on the truck?

Tire changing is not a one man job, it is a 2 man job at all times. Don't let anyone influence to do it by yourself.

It is a one man job. In my district only 1 person changes a tire at a time. You use a metal pole or other tool to lift the tire off.

At FBF they say that it is a one man job, but sometimes you may need assistance and then you ask for it but normally it is one man.

You can continue to work for your current employer until they tell you otherwise.

The HR lady said they are supposed to call you either way. I filled mine out at final processing in June and still haven't heard. But I'm not going to bug them for an answer either. ;o)
Pestie that was the answer i was looking for thanks alot bro !!
seriously... i thought i wouldnt be able to work my second job .....
I'm going to MAc's this morning to order my uniforms

You can easily do it by yourself with a pipe or the handle of the sledge hammer you need to remove the tire.

This is a great job. First collection truck roll in at 7:50 AM, but you can't leave until 2:00 PM, location has shower, pool table, ping pong table,
weight room. and TV room. The garage seems like a good gruop of guys, everyone treated me as an equal. I felt like I was part of the Garage, even though I was only there one day.
What garage in queens west were you in???
