the only good thing about working in a job like that is you dont have to pretend youre happy. im serious... i worked for a liquidation company in an office and everyone was so cheerful and happy, it was exhausting trying to keep it up and fit in. as if the admin work wasnt monotonous enough i had to smile while i fucking did it. its the one job ive had to actually sit in my car and eat my dinner, just so i could have half an hour being in my own miserable world. needless to say the first works do i got invited out on i got wasted (because the wait between the starter and main meal was like 2 hours), told my boss i loved her before exiting down the stairs quickly (because i was throwing up).

so yeah the 1 actual good thing about working in a manual labour environment is that you can have whatever expression on your face you want, and if your default facial expression is a frown like mine is then fantasic because you fit in with every other miserable fuck in the place.

Having worked in both environments, Jord is right. Industrial settings are way more relaxed than office. A bit of it probably has to do with the sorts of people who find their way into these sort of jobs.

He wants to know why you're miserable old cunt not what the type of shed where you ate your lunch.

i still do. Roughly 7.50e's/h (minimum). I get plenty of extra's, like 50% extra for hours after 19:00, 200% or 300% on holidays and it can go up with like 1e if i work more than certain amount of hours a week (which i do quite often)

It's still not much, but it's actually a pretty decent pay. Most of my peers work in bars and they make minimum wage (like 4,50 or something). They get tips, but even then, I will most likely make more.

e: if i actually get the promotion i would crank up to a whopping 12 or 13e/h! Honeslty, i know it all sounds like shit to some, but it's actually pretty good.

Just landed a job making 18.10/hour working 84 hour weeks (yes I'm serious). Basically work for 3 weeks, straight, then come home for one to three weeks.

Basic job description is I'm either driving a truck around looking for polar bears, or following a group of scientists out onto the tundra looking for polar bears. I am a bear guard, I'm given a remington 870 with slugs but can only shoot the bears if they're eating someone. Boss said to shoot myself instead of the bear as it's less paper work.

Looking at about $4700ish after taxes after my three weeks... Super stoked to start working, busting my ass working low end jobs has finally paid off.

And I do get paid overtime... Fucking insane.

That sounds pretty crazy.
Also, the difference between untrained and skilled jobs
Started earning what I earned in a day in an hour, what I earned in a week in a day.

Yeah it's bad ass. I'll be making more money just off my 120 hours of regular time than my last job, which consisted of me working 196 hours in 3 weeks. Then add the 132 hours of overtime to it and... well. fuck.

Yeah, I'll work 3 weeks straight then be flown home and get anywhere from 1-3 weeks off depending on the need for guards. Honestly I'd like to do 3on/2off but I don't get to choose =/

If you're a bear guard aren't you supposed to defend the bears?

Maybe its guard bear - in which case I don't think you should have a shotgun.

Just interviewed for a job, and it went really well. I've met the guy a few times and he invited me for interview today. I'll got from £17k basic to OTE of c.£33k. And the targets are very achieveable. Here's hoping I get it; should hear in the next few days.
