Hard work?

It's a physical job, but it's not a hard job. Anyone with no physical disabilities can do it and it requires no qualifications of any kind, those factors equal a low paying job.

I worked in a large, warehouse-like U.S. Postal Service facility for a few years when I was in my early 20's. My body held up okay, and I wasn't really all that strong back then. Like everyone else advised, use proper lifting techniques and your body will adapt (after some initial soreness)

I remember bringing an extra bagel to add to my lunch and trying to find places to sit down any chance I got. My waistline did get slimmer with all the extra movement.

My brother transferred out of the facility and started carrying mail as a substitute mailman. He had to mace some crazy dogs on his route --one broke through a window screen to try to get at him!

Minimum wage in Cali is $8/h (per wiki), while in Australia it's $15.6 (per the poster in this thread). So you are getting paid 170% minimum wage, while OP is getting paid 150% minimum wage. The gap between your wages is not as large as you think.

Plus, if you are a bouncer you work graveyard shift and irregular hours essentially. That job also requires more skills imo, or at least they look for a certain stock of person.

Yep. Worked in a distribution place driving forklifts. Enjoyed the driving but the heat sucked.

I'm a supervisor at a warehouse at the moment. Pays pretty well. Going to school at nights.

Ask tons of questions to learn the best techniques. Stay hydrated.

Yeah solid point, physical was obviously what I meant, would be the least stressful, difficult mentally job that I could imagine. I could dig it for sure, be nice to get out from behind my desk.

Is costing more smashing or is costing less? Wouldn't people want to cost less? Our capital city cost of living is apparently the lowest or the country.

Yea it's mostly night shifts, and ya always gotta worry about crazy drunk ****s goin mental. Worked 1 1/2 years as a bouncer and haven't had a fight, I mean I've broke up fk loads but not me vs patron fights. I'm more of a talker, which management seems to like.
