all the details need to be disclosed before you poo poo a company vehicle...
Um, reread. That is pretty much what I said.

A company vehicle is just another piece of equipment to that end. Oh, but I get to take it home you might say. Yeah, so I can be on call at my home (held hostage). How exactly is that a benefit, other than just being a method for which I perform the job for you, and hense get paid? It's only a benefit if I get to take it home and back every day, without being on call, so I don't use my own gas and wear and tear on my personal vehicle. It's like they don't have much to say about what benefits they do offer, so they try to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. That, plus they must think a lot of guys are real stupid if they fall for that as one of the perks of a job.



Yeah, they're looking for employees, of course they gussy up the job listing, are you surprised? Does that offend you? lolz


Round here you're expected to share call with the other guys on staff at any plumbing/heating company. We have a plumber on call and a heating guy on call, the guys rotate doing a week at a time. I am on call for snaking every week. I am also backup call for plumbing if there are too many plumbing calls or the guy needs a hand like pulling a well pump.


All of our guys who have vans during the day can take them home whether they are on call or not. Our helpers drive to the shop and drive home from the shop at the end of the day. They are never expected to use their personal vehicles during business hours. Some choose to drive their personal vehicles to the jobsite if they are leaving early or want to go straight home if they aren't needed back at the shop to unload. Heck, if a helper asks they can take a van/jeep/truck home too if they need to.


Our parts person offered to pick up a part from a supplier on their way in the next morning, my boss freaked and was like no, not setting that precedent, We will have our shop guy go pick it up in a company vehicle first thing when he comes in tomorrow.
