I have no problem with physically very hard work and am also happy with long working hours.
Au pair in Sydney
From August 2013
I lived with a family in Sydney. My job was to take care of their boy and to do light housework. I
also learned to drive on the left side of the road as my job also included a lot of driving. Besides, I
also did some renovations at the house (painting and smaller repairs).
From July 2013
I learned the work of a mechanic, including bodywork, electronics and repairing of the engine. I
was allowed to work independently on smaller repairs.
March 2013 - June 2013
UPS is an international parcel delivery company. My job was to drive a 3.5 t truck and to deliver and to pick up parcels. It was a physically and mentally very demanding job, as I had to plan my
route, meet timelines and to move up to 2 tons of parcels a day. I also experienced long working
hour as I sometimes worked more than 12 hours a day.
