Jill started working for Benedict in June 1974. As our longest serving employee, Jill has watched the company grow from a small family owned haulage company to what it is today. Presently she is a Transport Allocator, but over the years has done a variety of roles including payroll and accounts receivable/payable, although Ron (our founder) said she wasn’t any good at Accounts Receivable because she was too trusting, believing any story people told her about why their account was overdue! Jill has remained with Benedict because of the people she works with; they have become friends – both past and present. Jill feels that management have always been understanding about her needs be it a sick kid or the death of a much-loved family dog. One of Jill’s funniest memories while working at Benedict was when she thought she wouldn’t be able to get to work because the road into the sand quarry was flooded – Ron sent the loader to save her and she was ferried across to work standing on the loader steps. No-one was concerned about strict WH&S compliance back in those days!Jill Pidgeon
