Victor- Ready for a hard day of work

What does a day in the shoes of a Salvos Stores truck driver look like? This week we talked to Victor Lan, a Driver at the Noble Park Warehouse, to find out the answer to that very question. Our truck drivers pick up donations that have been booked for a home delivery.

What brought you to working at Salvos Stores?

I was always keen to be in a role in which I could work towards helping those who are in need.

How long have you been with us?

About 3 years now.

What’s your favourite part of working at Salvos Stores?

Always being on the road and seeing different places gives you a feeling of freedom in a way that you wouldn’t be able to get in other roles.

Describe a typical day at work for you.

Full of adventures!

Describe your job in 3 words:

Fun, rewarding and stress-free.

Do you have any funny/interesting stories from your time with Salvos Stores?

I recently helped a donor to rescue her cat from a tree. It was a little challenging as the cat was very stubborn and not particularly friendly!

What’s the last thing a customer said to you?

“Don’t eat them all at once!” – She had given us a plate of biscuits that she had made earlier that day. But we didn’t listen and scoffed them all in one go!
