what general labour jobs entail
Your work may take place in a variety of locales including a shop, warehouse, dock, farm, field, job site, or similar environment. Depending on the needs of your employer, you may be required to do a specific job, or fill in wherever you are needed.
Though you probably won't wear a uniform, you may be required to wear steel-toe work boots and other protective garments. Usually you report to a foreman or supervisor.
In the course of your work day, you may keep a job site clean, load, unload and deliver materials, work with scaffolding, or support other specialized contractors. On a construction site, you might be required to control or direct traffic or erect barriers or traffic cones.
