wow, that's some nice change. I was making $10 in my first job, and when I got layed off, I found it again, and they lowered it to $8. So I said forget about it. I'm looking for something at least $10+.

My last job title was the same job. except this time a better company. ive been hanging pipe for awhile so im gonna be doing the same.. but this company suppose to have new 4x4 trucks and new phones... very up-class company. i quit and didnt work for 9 months because it was my decision... really missed the checks coming in lol. but yeah as long you have proof you have experience u can ussally pick up ur pay where you left off. and yeah im gonna be "laying pipe" sometimes there some cute mexican girls on the jobs haha.


and 9.75 to just sit and play on laptop and fix a computer here and there. that must be nice. i would die to have a job like that. the field im in.. you go thru like 5 T-Shirts a day.. and in summer u get to where u throw up because of the heat its rough.

Default Re: New job.

haha, its nice, but i'd rather be doing something that is more time effective. like i love being able to just hang out with the like 3 other people at my work, but its really annoying when there isn't a lot to do. also I'm starting to not really want to stay in the computing field and do something that has more of an impact on people rather then just fix something they cold fix if they took like 4 seconds to look online and use google... so i'm going to be a teacher

Yeah, i agree i hate those jobs where you see every minute go by slowly. 1 hour seems like 4-5 hours lol. i like a job to keep me busy so time goes by faster.
