Pros: Large salary, bonds with coworkers, and very positive experience
Cons: Short Breaks, 20-25 hour average shifts, unruly people
Certainly a very strenuous job, both physically and mentally demanding. The 20+ hour shifts, operating and transporting heavy equipment, coordinating thousands of people and vehicles, and providing emergency response with only 45 minutes of break every 8 hours, although extremely difficult, taught me discipline and pushed me to my fullest potential. Another great aspect of this job was my experience in learning to cooperate with others, where efficacious teamwork was imperative to the job.
