    Filling vending machines. Every now and then you find a person that likes it. 99% of people that do it hate it and get away from it as soon as they can.

    The pros are not getting scanned in, not packing out and nit dealing with receivers.

    The cons are crappy pay (especially with schools not selling soda at all anymore or at the least not until after 3:00 PM), most places it's all manual. Meaning you have to manually count your own truck and inventory twice per day (no handheld computer), manually create the fill sheets for every machine, manually count and fill every can and bottle. Plus getting the machines open is a pain in the beginning. The key FOB machines are easy, but the key ones are a pain.

    I did it for a bit and hated every second of it. With a burning passion. A coupe other guys didn't mind it. It's a personal thing.

    Let's see if you're still relieved after a few weeks SOLO (key word )!!!! Lol. Words of wisdom CARB UP!!! Lol. Hey, you survive the first few weeks solo (after training and helpers) you'll be golden.

    It's tough work, but once you get your system down it's pretty easy. Good luck!

    Yep! The hiring supervisor/manager said it is a real small location. He didn't specify how many people actually worked at the Wadsworth location. Was pretty cool to see all that pop in the back of the warehouse.

    Every plant is different. Some are just a ride around around the block and others are every bit as involved as your states DMV test.
