Cop is only making 90k after a huge amount of overtime. And cops from Suffolk and Nassau are the highest paid in the nation and there's always a chance you won't start off in LI. You might have to work in the City at first.
You need 2 years of college to be an NYC cop. I'm pretty sure you don't for Long Island.
Does it get any easier than being a hitman? All you need...a loaded shotgun and maybe a car, but 1 hit pays for that itself.
You also have to watch your back at all times. You're more than likely be dead within 2 years. No different than dealing drugs.
really something in sales. Most teacher I know spend their evenings grading and preparing for the next day. You really think teachers only teach half of the school day? Ive never seen it. ask mlh, hes a professional sub. besides, they dont make much money compared to most professions. esp. since you need a ba, teaching certification, and must be working towards a MA in education on top of it all.
"professional sub" I like that
YOu are DEAD on about teaching. It is an extremely hard field and if you take any pride in what you do, you will spend 10-12 hours a day (at least in the beginning) not only teaching, but paperwork, grading, meetings, dealing with parents, administration, etc. I'm sure that there are some teachers that leave when the bell does, but if I was a parent, I wouldn't want that kind of person teaching my kid. YOU set the example for the kids, especially the young ones. If you do things half-@ss, they will follow that example. FOr many kids, YOU are the primary adult figure in their life, not their parents. They see YOU more than them. That's a HUGE responsibility.
As for the subbing.........easiest $90 a day I'll ever make. I pretty much just sit there and give them permission to go to the pisser, I pass out worksheets, crack some jokes, occasionally send them to the office, etc. I pretty much sit here on ISH from about 8-2, more or less, because there is A LOT of dead time as a sub..........
It's really boring, though. This isn't the type of job for a 25-year old highly ambitious (but lacking in focus) type of person. There is no satisfaction in it. I thought I had some gigs lined up, but things happened that prevented those from happening and here I sit........
Because like I said your not teaching the whole time, maybe 3 hours or so.
BTW, isn't airtraffic controller considered the most stressful jobs?
WTF are you talking about? I'm dating a teacher and:
--She gets up at 5:30 A.M.
--School starts at 7:00 (if you have playground duty, earlier)
--School ends at 2:30
--They aren't allowed to leave the campus unitl 3:45
--They have to come home and grade papers for two hours (and no you can't do it while watching TV, unless you can read papers, edit them or do math problems for 30 kids)
--During the day, you rarely sit down, you can't take "breaks," and you have to deal, if you are in grade school, with 30 freaking children. Most parent I know complain they have to take care of 1 or 2 kids and that is from 4:00 until their bedtime at 9:00 or something.
--You frequently have staff meetings and parent teacher meetings, and you wouldn't believe some of the stuff the children (even in rich neighborhoods) go through that weighs on you emotionally.
AND you get paid low.
NOT an easy job. Yes, you get some time off, but you get paid so little that during that time many teachers have to find summer jobs especially if they are single or household heads.
Government jobs, like post office or civil service, are the easiest to least amount of previous experience to best paid ratio, if you get what I mean.
There's a pay differential based on standard of living of where you live, but they're all very relaxed jobs and low stress generally. There's all kinds of regulations on how much an ass your supervisor is allowed to be anyways (and most are cool anyways) and because it's a Gov job, checks are always there and on time and you qualify for unemployment if you don't quit.
For example, my last job I worked for the military, D battery of a Field Artillery batallion. They train new soldiers (privates) for like 8 weeks or however long a cycle is, until they graduate and become soldiers (and generally get shipped to Iraq).
I worked in the Supply room. I was to be in from 7:30 so since it's a fulltime job, plus 8hrs and 30 minutes lunch should have me getting off at 4. Well I don't think I ever stayed passed 3. And we took atleast 1.5 hr lunches but generally 2 or more. And it's not even like I was a bad employee and was doing this behind people's back unbeknownst to anyone. It's just a relatively sham type of job where there isn't a lot to be done and the commanders, 1st sergeants, and everyone are cool and just be like "go ahead and leave, it's cool. I don't got anything for you now." Or we'd just be in that ***** sleep.
I made 13$ an hr, in Oklahoma, as a gs4. That's good money here, plus civil service jobs you accrue 4hrs annual leave every 2wks and 4hrs sick leave and it can carry over from past civil service jobs or to your next and you cash in all your annual on your last paycheck.
Oh, and security guards. The gate guards (when you go onto Ft Sill, an army base, you have to go through a quick security checkpoint where they check your ID and waive you pass if you have a Ft Sill sticker, if not you have to go to the check and they make you open all your doors real quick and just peek in then you can go) here used to make 20$ an hour, but they do shiftwork. Now, they're down to 16$ because they upped their benefits. If you live near a military base, you should look into it. Also, airport guards make a lot but they have a bit more responsibility.
