    The point is that I may have to go at any time. I don't have a time where I am guaranteed to be off.

    When we get into a lingering or intermittent problem that nobody can find, I get to go and pitch a tent in the compressor room until I find that SOB.

    yeah.

    They should start calling me the Janitor because I always seem to be cleaning up other peoples' messes.

    PI$$ES me off some times, but it keeps the bills paid and a few extra bucks in my pocket for toys.

    extra $$ WOW,.. I dont know what toys are. The only way I get extra bucks.... (much needed for daily life....) is to work a constant 50-60 hrs a week.

Its probably going to be a long winter. what do you think I should do? I'm stuck.
    If he a good guy to work for and you think he's can keep you busy for long trem then go for it.

    Got an extra buck for passing some silly test.

    Got an extra buck a long time ago because the boss thinks we are all cool guys. I guess. That one was never clearly explained to me.

    Tried to get an extra buck for the CM exam, but that went nowhere.

    Currently working on an extra buck and a half, but the criteria that I have to meet to earn it have, of course, not been made clear.

    At this point in time, I am reluctant to change jobs.

    Of course, I have a pretty stable job.

    As Bret says, if the guy can keep you working steady, then it's a good deal.
