    Keep the truck team members in mind when scheduling a gruesome day. When one team has an easy day and your team has an extremely long and gruesome day, it creates negative emotions towards the job and management.

    Seems like there should be a way to better reward your truck team members and as they are doing all of the grunt work. At my time here, it seemed like a lot of my hard work at various sites went practically unnoticed.
