Great Job Bailey!

on Friday, 24 June 2016.

I'm working well at Boss Waterproofing and I've had no complications throughout my work experience. My daily routine includes:
- Getting ready by 5:30am
- Arrival at the main factory at 6:00am
- Equipment and materials are loaded into van
- We are given several jobs to do throughout the day all across Melbourne.
- Work finishes about 3pm but most of the time we run overtime until 5pm.

Overall, I'm enjoying the work. I'm learning new things every day and making some mistakes but each day it gets easier and I'm not constantly having to ask for help and asking questions.
