a little bit about daily job life: I take care of a house full of potatoes and clean after them and shit.
my day is usually like this

pretty good to get paid weekly.
op can post stories if anyone is interested. Chronic masturbation and pretending to be asleep. One client is manic depressive and always makes lewd sighs and hangouts in the livingroom with me all the time. A few close calls with the stench of marjuana.
$35k from job. Also have income from renters about $15k.
Only debt is my 30 year fix mortgage on a 200k house I bought a few years back. I am 23. I'm not filthy rich or anything but I live really comfortably.
Its not boring by any means, I've been doing it for 15 years so I'm kinda wore out but it has its perks I suppose. I have a project car that I'm allowed to work on so I basically built that there. I can come and go when I need to. Paid weekly with OT every week.
goddamn anon you're doing it big. OP is only renting a 2 bedroom house, but I prefer renting so I wont have to fix anything out of pocket and it's not that expensive for my area so I have money for other things like internet, videogames and specialty food items.

IT, I don't really have a title, but I'm the head of the downtown satellite office. It doesn't mean much as it's only 3 people total there.
We handle all local government departments, except for any emergency services. Although we sometimes do auxiliary work for them when needed. On my downtime I like to make lewd webms and post to /gif/ while edging myself.

MFW the boss thinks I'm doing a great job and wants to give me a raise but really, I just sit on my ass all day.
Quality control inspector.
Currently making around 20/hr. It pays the bills and I'm sure not unhappy but I would have probably chosen a different career path if I could go back.
$115,000 a year
I write business applications for a large company.
Every application I write is some twist on a project management tool. They don't want to learn something popular MS Project or Jira so they just tell me exactly what features they want and I'll make it.
I love when lazy faggots like you get audited. My old roommate pulled this shit and got caught.
The best part was when he got away with it. I knew he had his shit together. Do you?
Graphic Artist working for various TV channels.
About $110,000 AU a year. (Live in Australia.)

-Whiteboard, argue about math and coding practice with coworkers, draft design documents, finally code software
-It's a great job, highly recommended.

So today, i put in my notice at my job. Essentially quit. I ran the place way underpaid. I do IT Support/Computer Repair. Been at the same place for 7 years, just me and the owner. Owner is a cool guy, stays outta my way only see him like 10 min a week. Been saving for awhile to go off on my own. TODAY WAS THE DAY!!!!. I signed the leased on my own office/store front yesterday. I saved up 25 grand. Paid 4 months in advance on the rent.
Nervous about going into work today but also excited since i had the keys to my OWN PLACE
Boss comes in nignoging about this and that. Me i am working on a few systems. He goes to leave
This is my last month here at this place
>Being professional since i been there so long
>Boss looks like he got his best toy as a child broken
He says "is there any amount of money you would take to stay"
I need to build my own brand/name, working here i can't really save for a real retirement
>Amazing how some people don't realize shit until its gone and spaghetti all over the floor
I worked/will be working at Amazon, so it's mostly just their in-house-build stuff. Almost everything I do is Java, a little Scala in there, occasionally Python for data analysis. Then they've got custom tools for testing and deployment.
I don't do any front-end/UI stuff, or networking stuff, or database stuff, so I don't know about any of that really.
Main paying job: server/bartender at a country club
Side Job/Hopefully career: i work marketing and hospitality in the music industry concerning anything EDM related in the Philly Area.
1st job: about 45,000 a year but it varies
2nd job: about 10,000. Not great but making a bunch of money in this isn't the goal yet. still a lot of work to be done
1st job: serve rich folks. Pretty self explainitory. Lots of cool folks. It's in Delaware so Vice President Biden comes in a lot, so it's neat to serve him.
2nd job: i run the social media accounts promoting the artists/concerts we put together. All the online marketing and such. I also run hospitality night of show which basically means making sure all the artists have everything they need/making sure everything runs smoothly.
Basically in both jobs i get to meet a lot of really cool and famous people, and being able to work on a career while having a steady paying job is very rad. I'm in a good place right now /b/ and im happy.
Communications coordinator, United States Air Force
I make $50,000 a year
I talk to cunts, I tell cunts to talk to other people, i fix cunts broken phones from time to time, i tell where to shoot big bad cannons.
I have a similar job, and make more but I don't have stock. How much do you really make on top of your salary with stock? Do you have to be super up-to-date with the market and stuff? I'm thinking about switching jobs but I haven't found anybody that will match my current salary but they push the stock "benefit" a lot.
Marketing specialist for a software company
60K per year + bennies.
I took a paycut to work here but got so burned out working for Intel and Nike. Commute is better, people are awesome, small office, no internal politics, etc...
I get that. I was picky about the house. It has a good setup. Needs a new coat of paint (which I should have taken care of this summer) but other than that its sweet. A very good family friend of mine is a contractor and my cousin is a carpenter so I can get shit done cheap. And I get free food where I work so my food bill is about 1/3 of what it should be.
Its nice right now because I have really trustworthy renters that I really like to take care of. I have heard horror stories and the like about renters taking advantage of the landlord. Laws are set into place in my state that rightfully protect the tenant but while doing this they sadly seem to neglect the fact that the owner can get seriously fucked. I live comfortably enough where I don't need the renters to maintain what I have for well over two years. So when my renters leave I can be picky about them too.
There is a lot more on my plate with the house, but I think it was good for me. It does mean I don't get to travel (at least at the moment) though. Probably the only downside.
Software Engineer in Test
$70,000 a year.
Went to school for programming, languished in customer support for three years (58K/y as support, so I wasn't crying), finally got a job that puts me back on a career path.
Before I went to school I was making minimum age, best 2 year decision I ever made.
well I'm a server at a tex Mex restaurant, I usually clear about $500 to $650 in tips per week and I get a check for like 65 to 80 or so every two weeks. I gotta say it's the easiest job I ever had. no heavy lifting our education required (not to say you can't be full on retarded, but I feel like a lot of people I worked with are like that). I make money daily and bullshit my way the whole time. I feel like anyone could pick up this job as long as you are the slightest socially adept
sellin' the bud in eastern europe-street hustling with it, etc. - guaranteed 150-200-300 euro / day - wont stay out more than 5 hours daily --- mostly cruise around the city meeting people or just waitin' at a bar for connects. pretty relaxed about it doing it for the past 7 years.
Oh, right, income. $14.76 an hour, so working just 40 hours a week I'm 30k a year, but I usually hit a lot of overtime. Double pay on holidays and overtime incentives pretty frequently, so I sit pretty comfortably at 40k.
-$50,000.00 a year
I'm in school and blacksmith as a hobby; I'm thinking of making products to sell but so far I haven't made anything I would consider worthy of putting my name on and shipping out.
Title: Petroleum Engineer
Just finished my PHD this year at University of Michigan, and I get to travel internationally which is nice. The only thing that sucks is that I have to deal with overly sensitive sand-niggers that usually do nothing but smoke and talk about American women
Well, just to be exact, it breaks down like this. And note, I plan to work at Amazon for exactly 2 years, as many of their employees do:
-$25,000 sign-on bonus the first year
-$20,000 sign-on bonus the second year
-About $10,500 in stocks, disbursed over the two years
I'm doing a 2 year-long intensive computer science program and you give me hope anon.
I'm about to start the dreaded "term from hell" in a week, so I'll try to have this in mind.
I worked for minimum wage for 2 years and don't want to go back to that...
hourly wages or yearly earnings:
$46k/year+ up to $5k in bonuses
a little bit about daily job life:
I teach Calculus to 11th grade girls who are in uniform.
whatever else you feel like listing:
Only ever slept with one of them.
I can save up my neetbux cause my mom pays for the rest of my shit
I'll share some advice:
- Do a coop term, it looks good on a resume.
- Volunteer at school, it looks good on a resume.
- Network with your classmates; get them all on facebook, linkedin, etc. I got my job through a school friend and that's really common.
- If you get a job in support after you graduate, don't stop looking for work; it's just a numbers game. APply to a million places.
- After you graduate, keep reading, keep coding. Read code complete, test driven development by example, and cleaner code. Never stop pushing.
Been in grocery retail for almost 5 years bouncing around. You need to go to an Aldi. Was making 8.05 at a Winn Dixie, got a job at Aldi, mover up to management in a year and a half making 16.50.
It's easy af, so many perks. Might be shit pay to some, but I had a bad childhood, no college now 24
2k per month is what I make after taxes and I fucking work 50 hours a week in a hot as fuck truck for 9-14 hours per day. At least I have a chance at promotion though. Fucking reeeeeeeing my ass off over here.

My dick is 7 inches long
I have two jobs
Title 1: Jewelry Consultant (the official term)
Day in the life: wake up, put on suit/tie, go to work around 8am, pull everything from the safe and set up displays, stand around waiting for people to come in, go to second job when finished

Salary: 100% commission
Biggest month was $32,000 at one of the largest Chrysler dealerships in north america
been doing it for 3 years now, most money i made in a year $238,000 in change
I pretty much sit on the phone all day and prospect new clients from an existing database.
Daily routine consists mostly of cut/polishing countertops.
Custom work ie: not fucking countertops can be enjoyable but production sucks.
Heavy work/shit pay, stay away.
Process worker I guess? not really sure what the official title is
$28 per hour working in a service hub
I receive broken mobile phones from retail stores and send them to the manufacturer for repair. Easy as fuck but gets a bit repetitive.
Some are completely fucked others just minor issues. I stopped looking for nudes long ago. For every hot pic you MIGHT find you go through hundreds of photos. Not worth the effort.
Job title: Graduate Student
Yearly earnings: $26,000 base (2/3 taxable) + 26,000 in scholarships (tax free)
A little bit about daily job life: Work when ever I want as long as the work gets done. No real "boss", my supervisor is chill AF. The work is interesting and I'm actually gaining lots of practical skills that will look nice on a resume. Over all a very sweet gig and I'm making more than I was when I was working.
> For every hot pic you MIGHT find you go through hundreds of photos. Not worth the effort.
Ah yeah I can understand that. When I was in lower level IT I used to look through people's work laptops and work phones (iphones) for stuff. Found some alright stuff, but it got old fast.
>narcotics/medical sample courier for a rural area
>20 yrs old
As far as jobs go it's alright. I work almost 12/day, and wake obscenely early.
However for an uneducated poor teenager it has been an amazing stepping stone from living in my truck and stealing food to getting a place and accepted for a trades course

Out field we stomp up steep hills with 60kg packs, set up OPs and call in fire missions.
Job Title: Navy IT
I'm on E-3 Pay of about 730 every two weeks. Job is pretty chill, but It's shit pay compared to what civilians who do the same thing make. Also because I'm in the Navy, I have to take shit from people who don't work in my field and/or are immensly dumber than me because they outrank me.
That last part is standard in any IT field sadly. I had a city attorney convinced that her laptop was being hacked. Wanted to involve the police, and of course get a brand new laptop. She was resting her hands on the trackpad when she was typing, causing the mouse to move. She was convinced that she was 100% right.
Job Title: General Manager in Training (AKA Assistant Manager)
Daily life: College work, mabinogi (Manipulating market and selling gold for money via paypal) Job work and whatever else I feel like doing.
You can't fix stupid.
I just can't wait for my enlistment to finish, so I can take my happy ass and all my certifications and go do the same thing for better pay than the pocket change I'm making right now.

Geeksquad: Consultation Agent
Thirteen dollars an hour
I go through the day accepting units to repair from idiots who allow phishing scams onto their computer through logmeinrescue.
Spend my mornings sleeping in a currently playing World of Warcaft till 4 am each day, then as I work I get to deal with people who never should even own a computer as I solve mostly minute issus without even checkingthe units in, unless they are riddled with viruses.
I then get home, or Meet up with a friend im essentially in love with, but who has a boyfriend, kill me god damnit i hate my life.
Account Specialist: Software Sales
40k/year + commission, (maybe another 20-30k a year).
Lots of cold calling to businesses. There's a lot of drudgery to it, but the money is better than anything else I'm qualified for at 29. Not enough to afford a house out here, but enough to save for the future.

No idea what that is.

2. Know SQL,Tableau, Excel and a scripting language (I use python a fair amount)
All you cooks need to look into working privately. My dad was the personal chef for one of the old Secretary of the Army. He made 250k+ serving two meals to two people a day. Plus any random dinner party, where he could hire own as many people as necessary. It was pretty cool growing up, I got to meet a lot of presidents.

>daily job life
sweeping, going into the freezing cooler to restock beer, washing windows, breaking down boxes and taking them to the trash, and trying to memorize a thousand peoples faces and names
I'm allowed to drink in the back if nobody sees me. We're on 6 hour shifts, I'll drink a 6 pack in that and keep a little buzz going, but I don't want to risk it and start dropping bottles or something and having to pay for it.

I want to know how to do alot more but need to be sure i want to be in this field to pursue [tactical] 'medic or get the fuck out of the field and hit the books again
I used to tell myself that i'd be content with saving just one life in my lifetime, give me some sort of purpose but i know i can do more and assisting in saving one it just isnt anywhere near enough.

How the fuck does that work? Are you alone in a room watching a bunch of security monitors or something?
As for me, 2 jobs,
Valet - I only work Saturday nights, and tips amount to about to about $20/hour.
Easy job, and just need drivers license to get hired. Only down side is having to be on your feet all the time.
Also, Pizza Delivery 4 days a week. Bout $12/hour average with tips
With both of these jobs, I can report low on my tips to avoid high taxes
nice trips /b/ro. And college blew. I started classes at 7:30 in the morning till 5:50 at night. Barley did any partying cause the program requires you to hold a 3.0 GPA and my dumbass never had a 3.0 before. 8 weeks in school, and 8 weeks on the job training. My dad works for the company so I got to work side by side with him during the process. If you do awesome work while you're in the program, 9/10 the company will keep you. So you'll have a job straight out of college. Construction companies and Unions are always looking for high quality Mechanics now a days
Job title: Salesperson/Private guitar tutor in a music store
Earnings; $20/hour, AUD though, 9:00-5:30 5 days a week.
Basically just sit around on my phone and play guitar all day until a student shows up.
Salaried but with the avg hours I work it it comes out to about $42/hr
Keep shit running, plan maintenance events, upgrades etc. Mostly a team lead now and do more planning / management than actual technical work. Downside is I'm on call 24/7.
Janitor, about 10 bucks an hour with ~15 hours a week.
Day in the life: wake up around noon, smoke a bowl, play some shit on steam and watch documentaries or whatever looks good, get dressed for work between 6 and 7 pm, drive 10 minutes to downtown area where I clean 3 buildings for about 3 hours a night, go home by 11, 12 at the latest, smoke a bowl, play some more vidya til 1 or 2, go to bed and start all over. I also go to community college 5 minutes from where I live when it's in session, got my GI Bill from the Army so I do that too.
On call is the fucking worst, especially since it alway turns out to be something retarded. Our dept head told us to log any 15+ minute call as an hour though, so it balance out I guess.
Thanks man. Looks like the closest school is over 2 hours away, but I'll figure it out somehow. I'll do whatever I can do not end up in debt and constantly poor like my parents
Welder at SpaceX
>hourly wages or yearly earnings:
$115k-$125k depending on the amount of OT I work
>a little bit about daily job life:
My job is pretty fun. It's fast paced and I get to work a ton of hours, which I actually enjoy. Most of my coworkers are really bright and I get work on shit that gets launched into space, unless it blows up on the pad. Either way though, explosions are pretty cool.

job title: Private Banking Analyst
yearly earnings: Just started the gig, 100k + bonus
a little bit about daily job life: Excel and meetings
Came from Ops to FO, spaming CK2, working on a side business, fucking gfs and traveling
Think I'm one of the few finance /b/tards in the thread.
Be relateable, and positive. Most people in the industry are average or retarded, just need to know how to sell your skills and previous projects right. I came from a very T1 firm, and my manager she didnt know anything what we did,but she knew how to sell shitty results well + was a female.
But what do you want to do? Trading, Banking, strategy, analytics, ops? And why?
12.50 each lesson, so like 25 an hour
my earnings depend on how many students i get and that all happens at the front desk of the music store. In a month, i can make between $1000 and $2000 depending on how busy the store is.
>most of my students are kids
>some are cool, others are little shits
>best part of the job is talking to the hot moms.
>every now and then, a 9/10 college age girl will sign up for lessons, but they've all sucked at guitar and never practice so the lessons tend to be lame. They usually do lessons for a month then quit cause their fingers hurt
People try to get these jobs straight out of college, took me a bit to get it. But find jobs that are relatable to your end goal, mid term goal and short term goal.
I found this specific job on the banks career site. having my previous employer on my resume did help ( I got that job through a linkedin app).
I had no direct skills for this current job excel, a lot of transferable skills (excel, data analysis, root cause analysis, prototype/proof of concepts, and working with stakeholders).
basically if you have to boil it down too:
>Make a path to the goals (be flexible)
>Figure out what are you assets and weakness, in terms of skills, network, and job
>Find how that relates to that job/goal and work for it
>CFA or the alternative investment version of it helps too
>Hustle and make opportunities

I roll in around 1030 or 11 in the morning and make an espresso. I've probably been up until at least 5am the night before, if I even slept at all, smoking meth. I then write software for and operate the apparatus providing security for a system used for 20% of humanity for their communciations. Good snacks
imnot100% certainon what i want to do exactly, but from what ive seen trading/ strategy looks like the best fit. skrelli is my hero, im young and so far the only good money ive made was sales bc im good at manipulating people. sorry i mean "motivating" when i was freshoutof hsiworked for derect energy, my bestmonth i made10k before taxes, thatwas quitethe highfor me, i later worked car sales, got bored and realised the industry is dying and then worked for vivint in thelast 3months i made 15kso thatsnot bad but i cantstand company culture and want to killmostof the people i work with. i work best mostly alone with some time to mix ideas with co workers and im tired of having to wear this mask all the time. i havea high iq (142) and wanttoputit to good use, iwantto retire in 20years so that i will not needto work anotherday in my life and can instead just invest and work on any passions, from what ive seen this looks like my best shot.
the only problem is my hatred for normies but if i was making that much i could move past it.
I got a part time job as a helper in the machine shop of a university straight out of HS. It eventually turned into a full time job and later on I was hired at JPL. JPL paid for a bunch of different training and certifications, I also did some coursework at my local community college and then a few years ago I came over to SpaceX.
I think you responded to the wrong post anon.
$26-$33/h (aussie dolla) depending on weekend or late night.
Pretty easy, though I've seen some people come through with no idea what to do at all. Work ~25-30 hours a week whilst I study at uni fulltime. All in all fun times, though it can be pretty mind numbing at times.
that's sweet. I'm questioning my own career choice - music - for obvious reasons. It's nice and all but making any good money off it means I have to be really lucky and get good connections. Hard work and dedication aren't enough.
Yeah, music definitely isn't a career for those looking to take the easy route. If you really love it though I can see the appeal.
If you're good with your hands or are interested in aerospace or the trades you can always pick up the skills for relatively cheap at a CC and get yourself a decent job while also trying your hand at music. We have tons of technicians at SpaceX who come to us from all sorts of non-aero backgrounds. I know a cook who got hired as a apprentice composites tech and a videographer in his mid thirties who worked his way up from an inventory clerk to a avionics tech. It's never too late.
$40,500/yr salary, plus about $2k/yr in overtime and another $3,500 or so in year end bonus. I also have amazing benefits.
Assign duties and jobs for the day, track productivity, manage warehouse budget and inventory, order supplies, vendor relations, assist warehouse fellers with duties if they're swamped, customer relations occasionally, handle any HR related stuff involving warehouse staff, act as liason between warehouse staff and corporate stiffs, and a mishmash of random IT, accounting, equipment maintenance and even company website maintenance tasks.
It's nothing special or glamorous, but I make enough to provide a nice middle class lifestyle for my family when combined with my wife's salary, I have health insurance, vacation days, company parties and lunches and awesome coworkers. I feel like I'm doing pretty okay for a HS diploma having chronic underachiever.
i recycle litter and don't have any of the drama between these posts.

Sorry mate, just saw this.
Ya finance is slowly dieing due to PC, market pressures, automation and regulation.
Anything thats buiness to business is still profitable, more complex the deal the better.
Deff having a influence skill and analytics skill is useful. As you can easily transition to fin tech, which is vastly growing.
In the end it doesnt matter if your FO, BO or MO, at a fintech firm or not. Money isnt as good anymore in finance, espically with banks anymore. But the skills are the same across all of those jobs.
Skills baially stakeholder management, product knowlege, influencing and analytics. Focus on those and you should be golden as all jobs need that.
Strategy is good, without going into top teir consulting its hard. Unless you rise up to be upper mid level manager in what ever area you are in..
if you want, give me your burner email, we can talk more there.
I do primarily two things:
1. I'm a weld inspector in our propulsion group so I qualify all welds on the actual rocket engines.
2. I help run/set up the friction stir welding machines we use for the tanks and other larger structures.
my shitty job
job title: cleaning shit
I make 895€ a month with taxes
a little bit about daily job life: I clean eberything in a nursing home
my day is usually like this
wake up at 5:20

take out trash, clean shit all day, clean after all the old people that shit and piss on the floor
15 mins break
wash the dishes then proceed to clean
30 mins break to eat
15:30 end of work
>1. I'm a weld inspector in our propulsion group so I qualify all welds on the actual rocket engines.

Hope you weren't the weld inspector for SpaceX at the Cape this week. The first frames of the explosions show a classic over-pressure breach of something internal and the it went to hell from there.
>C++, finance, low latency stuff
The faster the server, the more effective the engine, the more you are worth. Amazing how much faster a server runs when you use native code instead of this Framework shit. I'm on the mobile and wearable client end myself.
I hope so too. I don't handle the inspections for pressure vessels but yeah, I have my signatures all over the engine piping.
Honestly, I fucking hate watching our launches, I'm always shitting bricks the whole time.
I'm currently a casheir at Walgreens, I make 9 dollars an hour, 9.50 on overnight shifts, but i rarely work those because i'm a student and honestly the walgreens is in a shit area, so i'm not trying to get hit with the "get a gun shoved in my fucking face" meme
job title: RN
yearly earnings: 63K a year
I manage other nurses while helping out the other doctors while doing various duties.
63K may seem like a fair bit of money but I have a masters degree to pay off.
Warehouse beer picker
Not going to state the company
Boring as shit and waking up is almost impossible but they dont care if you smoke
I have some good fuckin stories if you want probs gonna pist anyways im high as fuck right now.
I started my own doggie daycare business. I was laid off, having trouble finding work, live in metro area with a lot of affluent dog owners that treat them like children, so I saw an opourtunity. There are others in the area, but I called around posing as a dog owner looking for a daycare and lots of them had waiting lists. So I was like, fuck it, let's do this.
Right now I've got 15 dogs at $50/day (seriously). Operating costs aren't really that much, but I'm putting as much as the revenue as I can into the company. Plan on getting a better location soon, and all sorts of fancy goods and services to provide the pups. So right now it's looking like I'll be paying myself about $35k this year(second year of the business). It's not a lot, but my wife works, so...
Once we've expanded our location and services offered and staff, the hope is to be able to bring in a lot more "clientele", and in a couple years actually pay myself a decent amount.
I do think the entire thing is ridiculous, but if well off people want to give me money to pamper their dogs...I'll do it. I love dogs and I hate working for people anyway.
job title: Warehouse Assistant (at the largest Contractor in North America [so my company says])
hourly wages or yearly earnings: ~$14.95/hr
a little bit about daily job life: Do whatever my boss says while he sits on his fat ass while "ordering material" all day.
Job Title: Chief Design Officer
Pay: ~15,000 USD a month base, + 10~15 variable
Job description: Basically design software and interfaces for companies and infrastructure systems. I'm my own boss, pretty much.
Typical Day: I get in at 9, arrive at 10 AM to my office. Have breakfast with a hottie associate who makes more than me, everyday. Start work at 11:00 AM. I design interfaces for apps, or web services mostly, then code them. Probably have to send one or two six figure quotes every day, and have meetings with clients to understand their flow and how the interface will work optimally. Get out before 3:00 PM.
I get one month paid vacation. Can work remotely, so in reality I'm traveling about 90 days a year. Have three cats and four huskies.

Body Shop Mechanic for Greyhound.
Still not 100% pay scale either. 3 months away. Then I'll be about $30/hr
Daily life at job is sanding down broken body panels, repairing broken seats, and welding anything needs be.
On a related note, don't ride greyhound. We don't fix our shit correctly, the bosses don't give a shit, and generally no one cares.
Title: Head English Teacher (at an International School)
Salary: $1,200/month (a metric fuckton in Cambodia)
It's pretty dope. The kids are great and I only work 4.5 hours a day Monday through Friday. I have more than enough money to live, save, and travel.
Senior Manager, Semiconductor Marketing
$170k per year base, made $35k in bonuses or will have by end of this year.
50 hour work week min.
But costs out here in Santa Clara are very very high.
I did better in Austin.
>$97k/yr + 10% bonus
I manage a group of 14 engineers with cumulative project values of around $10M-$20M at any given time.
I like to think of myself as a hands-on manager- if one of my guys calls in sick or is on vacation, I step in and help them with what they're doing. I did it for 10 years before managing, so it's all still fresh in my mind.
I also take care of accounting issues, set up new systems, quote projects, go on sales calls, and whatever else pops up. I work 50-60hrs a week on average
It's sort of a thankless job- I go to bat for my team and often fall on the sword to keep momentum going
Work on a supply boat in the Gulf of Mexico.
Keep the engines running and fix shit when it breaks. Pump fuel and drilling products to drill ships/oil rigs.
Get paid by the day 750 per day.
Schedule is 14 days on the boat/ 14 days off.
12 hour shifts every day for the 14 days on.
