First of all – what does a courier do?
The answer seems to be obvious – he delivers packages to customers. The courier can work by car (sometimes the company provides a car), moped, bicycle or even on foot. He delivers small envelopes and large boxes. He delivers pizza at two in the morning :), and manages to deliver important papers just in time for a business meeting. The work of a courier involves a lot of communication with different people and a lot of travel, even if these travels are limited to one city or even area.
Advantages of working in a courier service
Let’s talk about the positive side of working as a courier!
- It does not require special education, although the ability to find a common language with people and a certain level of stress resistance are welcome.
- Work on the delivery can be combined with study or other shift work.
- Allows you to engage in self-development: listening to audio books, music, recording lectures or business training, affirmations or motivating quotes.
- Mobile work in the fresh air with foot couriers or bicycle deliveries allows you to keep your body in good physical shape.
- The absence of reasons for the emergence of conflict situations with colleagues, since you practically do not have to see them. 🙂
- Tips from satisfied customers motivate us to quickly fulfill the duties of delivering orders. This is another opportunity to increase your budget.
