Shepparton forklift driver John Papoulis is cool with working through this week’s heatwave.
The JDK Management Cold Storage employee spends most of his workday unloading pallets into a coolroom set at -18°C.
‘‘When you first open the doors in the morning, there’s a mist of cloud that comes out that you can’t even see through,’’ Mr Papoulis said.
‘‘In winter you don’t want to go inside, but in summer when it’s 40 degrees, you just love them.’’
Mr Papoulis said his job meant he was constantly coming in and out of the coolroom.
He admitted having access to the freezing cold room was one of the bigger benefits to his job.
‘‘It’s a good job to have when it’s hot,’’ he said.
‘‘You walk in and you feel relieved, like you’ve just jumped into a swimming pool.’’
