Leaving. Although I got in trouble for mistakes other people made it was still decent money and I loved the easy-going atmosphere of the office. I felt like a family and I miss that.

When you go for your interview make sure you dress the part and look professional but be prepared to be relaxed, smile and know that the fun and excitement of travel are alive and well in that office. Although it is an office job that can be tedious and stressful, systems are in place that ensure that the work is completed and a light hearted and fun demeanor exists amongst senior employees, the general manager, drivers and the owners. You will feel like you are part of their family from the first day!

My biggest mistake was that due to being financially overextended I took on another, exhausting job during the first shift hours of 7am-1pm. Following that shift as a tow-operator I would drive home, shower and change and return to my dispatching position at A1A. I was working 17 hour days with only 1 full day off per week. Simply, I became burned out, overly tired and at times struggled to stay awake and alert. This eventually led to my departure from A1A as well as the first shift towing job and into a new industry and career. If I had to do it all over again, I would have asked for a raise from the owners of A1A, supplemented my income by driving for the company on a part time basis before my shift and maintaining my position at that company as I believe my departure has and will lead to me missing out on the future growth of this respected and successful small, family run business.
