What does that entail exactly? How many hours a week? Do you work odd hours, do you have to take your work home with you?

I'm 34 making 50K plus full benifits (health life dental and they match whatever I put into my retirement fund up to like 25% of my pay). I'm a lab tech at a biotech company. It's a technical job but low stress and I don't have to take it home with me etc. I work 8AM to 5PM, then clock out and don't worry about shit.

I would like more money, but my stress level is basically zero right now. I make enough money to meet all my needs and still have money for vacations, hobby etc.

I live in Kansas just outside Kansas city. The living costs here are pretty low. Making 50K in KC is like making 150K in California or New York.

I live with my GF and we rent a 3 bedroom house with a garage, full back yard with a patio for just over $1,000 a month. That wouldn't get me a studio apartment in New York.

I make salary and definitely work at least 60 hours a week. And yes work comes home. I'm an engineer for a tech support team so not physically demanding, but mentally tasking and that's what draining me.

anywhere from 60k and up is decent if you're single or even have a girlfriend without a family. I make 35k a year and I have a family at the age of 23. But there's plenty of potential at my work to easily make 60k and still be lazy as fuck. Just gotta wait a few more years.

It's tough work not meant for everyone. It will break your body within two decades and it is overrun with rednecks buying expensive toys and doing really terrible drugs. If you do, you will make a lot of money working 12 hour days, 6-7 months a year. Usually on a rotation 3 weeks on 7 days a week, 1 week off. It is rewarding though if you can handle some of the heaviest labor in the world.

Can you give me a quick run down of what a 12 hour day is like? Whats the actual physical part of the work?
>>
>>718530695
Wake up, get food, get to work. Usually cleaning the rig, assisting the driller in changing bits and such a few times a day. Lots of heavy lifting and moving of materials. I have my loader permit so I'm getting trained a few hours a day in that area. Generally you work 30 minutes, take 5 to 10 to warm up inside and do work in the warmth. Keep in mind most drilling and oil sands work is done in the winter so we are talking -40 average cold (at least, in the area of the world I work in). So yea.. hundred pounds lifting at a time 12 hours a day with 2 hour long breaks. one paid. Go back to camp at the end of the day, eat dinner, shower, sleep. Do it again the next day. Fun times.

I get that you graduated, Im asking if you graduated from high school and college, or just high school. 21 seems to old for high school, but to young to be out of College.

I ask because you say you are working to further your studies and end up with 40k a year kind of implying you are still in some sort of school.
I am also wondering what degree has such shitty return on investment if you did in fact graduate from a university.

You could get a doctorate in Chemical Engineering and still not earn that kind of money.
