I'm only currently working til I win the powerball.actually,I'm a boilermaker,it's great money,but that's it.I hate it,long hours,dirty work,hot,but it's good money,plus I've gotten to see most if the country.I'm probably getting out of it soon,my house will be paid off in march,so I'll just go thru the motions til something else comes along.
I enjoy my job, but the hours for 15 weeks out of the year blow hard. Other than that I have excellent advancement opportunities within my current employer and the potential to do well if I ever decide to leave and cut out tax season.
One of the lucky few who love my job. I never thought i'd ever be able to work in an office but I found out it sure beats working construction. I got lucky and fell into a awesome job that pays well, lot's of vay-k time, and plenty of room for advancement.
I did like my job(building maintenance) and a lot of the guys I worked with. Traveled to a lot of the company's buildings in Western Pa. and West Va. Home every night,some overtime and a company van,lots of vaccation and sick leave. Only downside was when they reorganized the whole maintenance department. Everything went down hill. They put people in charge who didn't have a clue. I would have stayed a couple of more years,but the time was right. Now it's huntin' and fishin'.
I had the same job for 22 years and got fed up with management changing the rule's when ever the wind would change! I just changed who I work for and still do the same type of work and very much enjoy my new management. 3 years down and only need 7 more to retire with paid health insurance with 30 + years in the State retirement system!!!!
Don't get me wrong we all have issues with management,some more than others(Being President of my local gives me more dealings with management than others----mostly arguments). BUT........
the benifits outweigh the cons!!!
Where could I retire at age 50(after 20yrs servive)with a full state pension and health benifits for life for my wife,dependant children and myself and a 22% raise over 4 years??????
Yeah the politics gets tiresome BUT then I look at my pay stub every 2 weeks and consider myself lucky. Many folks are out of work living on a shoestring!!!
I consider myself blessed
