The job of an executive driver is to get close to people in high positions such as the president of the company. Therefore, some people may be interested in this work. So let's see how much the executive driver's working hours are in a day.
■ Average restraint time for executive drivers
Executive drivers are basically working eight hours. You will often be detained for an average of 9 hours, including a 1-hour break. The working hours are the same as those of general company employees, and are generally from 9:00 to 18:00. However, there are many cases where people are restrained outside of normal working hours. For example, an officer may entertain golf on business on holidays. In such cases, you will be detained from morning till evening as you will be transferring officers to the golf course. There are also times when you are suddenly restrained. For example, if a customer is suddenly unhappy, an officer will also attend the night. Therefore, the officer driver must pick up the officer to the venue for the night. In this case, the time from when the officer participates in the night to when he returns home is restricted.
■ Daily driving time
Officer drivers drive a car when they pick up and drop off officers. When an officer arrives at the company, the officer driver will pick you up at the company. At that time, it is common for the officer driver to visit the officer's house and then pick up the officer in a car and transfer to the company. Depending on the distance, you will probably drive for an hour or two. Also, if an officer leaves the office after finishing work that day, he / she will be picked up at the officer's house. Therefore, you will have to drive for at least 2 to 4 hours a day. In addition, when an officer visits a business partner or goes out, we will pick you up at the destination. In such cases, the daily driving time will increase by 1 to 2 hours. When an officer travels by air at home or abroad, the officer driver must transfer the officer to the airport. In this case, depending on the distance to the airport, the daily driving time will be significantly longer.
■ Waiting time for one day
Officer drivers are on standby during work, except when picking up officers. As for the waiting time, it is common to check the schedule of officers and engage in car cleaning and maintenance work. It is also an important task for executive drivers to strive to ensure that executives can work comfortably and with peace of mind. Therefore, it can be said that these tasks are as important as the transfer of officers. The daily waiting time for an officer driver is the restraint time minus the daily driving time. The average restraint time for executive drivers is 9 hours, and the normal daily driving time is about 2 to 4 hours, so the daily waiting time is generally about 5 to 7 hours. However, if the driving time increases due to the officer going out during work, the waiting time per day will decrease accordingly.

When considering hiring an executive driver, if you had the choice of a male driver or a female driver, you might be wondering which is better. Which is better? I summarized the characteristics of male drivers and female drivers.
■ Is driving ability and a sense of stability attractive? Male driver
There has always been a strong image that men are good at driving a car. This seems to be the case because men generally have more opportunities and time to drive a car. However, if you become a driving professional like a dispatched driver, the story is different. Now it seems that both men and women have the same driving skills. However, if you panic, men may be able to deal with it a little more calmly. Male drivers tend to re-schedule relatively calmly and logically, even if there is a sudden change in schedule. Also, as a male-specific tendency, mood may always appear to be stable. That sense of stability may lead to a sense of security for the officers on board.
■ Is the calm atmosphere attractive? Female driver
Recently, women have been actively expanding into society, and the driver industry is no exception. Many people are active as professional drivers. Isn't that driving skill comparable to men? Now that driving skills are on a par with men, what is the unique appeal of female drivers? It may be a calm atmosphere that is always full of kindness. Even if you open and close the door, you will feel graceful and kind as a woman. If you feel like it, you may have a lively conversation within the company. If the officer is a man, the female driver will be in a good mood and the mouth will be loose. The appeal of female drivers is that they create such a calm atmosphere.
■ Judging by personality and characteristics rather than looking at gender!
It turned out that men are likely to have a sense of stability as men, and women are likely to have a warm atmosphere full of tenderness. Both men and women are likely to have their own good points. Also, as already introduced, there is no difference in driving skills between men and women when they are professional drivers these days. If you are learning business etiquette and knowledge of road conditions through training, it seems that there is not much difference between men and women. So what exactly should we choose based on? In the end, isn't it the human nature of the driver? If you become a welcome driver, you will meet every day from the morning. It is best to choose a person who can be casually attentive without being unpleasant even when talking, and it can be said that the humanity of that person is more important than men and women.
