This position is subject to uncomfortable working conditions, such as washing on average one car per day in the hot sun and very dust area. It takes roughly 60 minutes to wash each vehicle. This is done on a daily basis and it lasts 1 hour.

A heavy workload resulting from the continuous need through out the day to deliver communications to contacts outside Company ABC. The condition is severe because the communications have to be delivered at different address in town where the flow of traffic is very heavy. This requires a lot of concentration.

This happens daily and normally lasts for 3 hours.
