DON'T PULL THE TRUCK ON THE SIDEWALK FOR A BAG STOP OR A BULK STOP,THEY WILL BANG YOU , ALSO IF YOU BREAK THE SIDEWALK OR THE TRUCK CAVE'S IN THE SIDEWALK YOU HAVE MORE TROUBLE.ALSO STAY ON YOUR RT.

Things to do to avoid getting banged...Let's see first up get to work on time and make sure you know what shift you're on. Be in proper uniform and ready to work at roll call. If you don't understand what a boss is telling you ask questions to make sure you understand clearly. Watch your break times especially if on MLP. On collection stay on one side of the street,don't put the truck on a sidewalk or the wrong side of a street. Don't wave people or vehicles to go past or in front of you. When off the route always keep your seatbelt on. Keep personal things to yourself. Avoid anything that looks wrong to you. This includes alcohol,gambling,leaving your garage before your shift is done. If you need to pick up lunch during break let someone know this,garage supervisor,supers clerk, shop steward. Make sure you let whoever you work with you are on probation, many will help you avoid trouble. Your objective is to get thru probation and secure the job.Learn to mind your own business.Sticking your nose where it don't belong will make you sorry. Never forget that everyone around you at work was in your shoes at one time. The Chief, the super the shop steward all had to get thru probation. Most will take this into account if they see you honestly trying to do your job and avoid trouble.Remember it takes time on the job,for most people, before you get choice assignments.Being low man in seniority means bouncing shifts and catching lousy jobs. That's the price one pays at the bottom. The good thing is you can only move up. Hope my rambling helps. Good luck. Stay safe.
