Pros: not being supervised, knowing i'm responsible enough to do my job on my own.
Cons: no breaks, no lunch, no benefits, no workman's comp, paycheck deductions, work vehicle maintenance, low pay, fuel accounts for half your paycheck
I'm SUPPOSED to work from 5am-1pm, but my boss usually shows up late or gives the office key to someone who is equally irresponsible. The most I've learned from this job is that some people, including those in management, just don't have a work ethic. We are never paid on the same day, my boss deducts us for pretty much anything he deems necessary, – more... and he does not confront his lazier employees. My coworkers, aside from one 40-year old man, don't even bother to break a sweat at work. He and I are the only two workers to have to take our jackets off in the mornings from actually putting in work. The hardest part of the job is putting up with my boss allowing his son and relatives to do know work, but still make more money than us who actually do. The most enjoyable part of this job, will be leaving and getting to work with people who appreciate, enjoy, and take their jobs seriously. I have worked in other team environments and NEVER have I seen a crew that is so terrible at working together to create a clean, comfortable, productive workplace. – less
