As for "benefits," I may not get 50% off Armani, but I do get full dental and medical.

EDIT: I work for an oilfield service outfit.

I'm not trying to make it a competition or anything but I work about 12 hours a day Mon-Fri, and then anywhere between 4-8 on Saturdays. I worked today, but I don't do that often.

Nobody wants it to be a competition. You'll kill yourself working 70 hour weeks soon enough.

No, not really. Not at all. I actually enjoy it a lot. I'm pretty much my own boss. I get my own truck, I make my own schedule. I listen to my iPod all damn day, take my lunch whenever I want for as long as I want. The work isn't too demanding. It's mostly driving. If I calculated the amount of actual physical work I do a day, It's around 3, with 9 hours of driving.

Again, what is it you're doing? Delivery driving?

The checks are super-nice. If we get our quota done for the month I get an extra $500, which is easy to do when I'm doing all the over-time.

After family insurance
Social secrucity
Dental
State/Federal taxes
401K

I bring in a regular check every two weeks of $3000+ then my bonus check which the last check of the month is $3500+.

It's not a lucrative job, that's for sure. Let's just say It's not something 90% of people would be comfortable discussing in a group setting.

The company has an incredible turnover rate. That's why they prefer to keep the number of actual employee's to a minimum and just jam on the overtime.

Huh, okay I guess.

Either way, glad you're back in work and happy about it.

I get dirty looks and apologies all day long. People actually apologize to me for the job that I'm doing. And I'm not embarrassed by it at all. A paycheck is a paycheck is a paycheck. And to get about 75-80 a week during a 'recession'? I'm not complaining.

And thanks.

explain this to me. Truckers can only drive, what 8 hours every 24 due to eye strain, alertness issues, etc. So why can you (or other delivery type drivers) drive more than that, in much more varied driving conditions? Im writing my congressman!
