    I made a serious mistake entering this field

    I feel like an idiot. I gave up a decent job and spent money out my own pocket to go to enter this field.


    I'm just so damn pissed off at myself that I can't even stand it.


    I'm working 10 hrs per week and the big hrs go to the favorites of the boss.

    I don't know if I should move on or try to hang in.

    I got a job a offer from KBR to work for a year in Afghanistan for 84,000 tax free


    I just made a serious mistake

    Are you an installation helper or a service technician?
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    I started @ $9/hr in 93. Had to change bosses to get a raise. I think I have worked for every a$$ in town. Suprising thing is I am very honest in the interveiw. Boss is willing to say anything to put a truck back on the road.

    I am not at my highest salary level now, but the boss is not an a$$. Thinking about moving again to get more money. You think you can put up with a lot of crap for an extra $200 a week, until you have to put up with it.

    Looks exactly like the kind of place where I would feel comfortable.
