So sorry for gatecrashing your forum but I am after some honest opnions and advice.
My husband has an assessment day next week to potentially join the RAC as Roadside Patrol. Currently he is 9-5 Monday to Friday but shift work is quite appealing to him. However, how far in advance is the rota set as we would like to plan ahead around his shifts? How many weekends do you work before you have a weekend off?
Typically how many hours a week do you work and what is the average shift length? Are the shifts set like 6am-2pm, 9am-6pm, 2pm-11pm or can it literally being anything?
His main bug bear at the moment with his current employer is booking time off for holidays. It is a real struggle and is often refused. What is this like with the RAC?
With regards to the work, are you expected to sell add-ons at every job? Are there strict targets or is it fairly relaxed? How safe is the job, my worry as his wife is the potential for serious injury working on the hardshoulder of the motorway etc!
Any advice on what to expect from the assessment day would be really aprricated along with any other comments good or bad.
Thank you for taking time to read this and I hope you don't mind me posting.
