Chemical Plant Operator.

It's hard/ semi dangerous work but the hours are sweet.

12 hr shifts, 4 days on (2 days then 2 nights) then 4 days off with 4 RDO's every three months.

Means i have plenty of spare time for my extra curricular activities.

I think you'll need to 'help' him bring in 'those' surfboard bags also.

My income is from DJing but during the day I pile money into 48records & KLAD audio, I’m supposed to be designing sound systems, speakers, acoustic crap and fixing equipment for DJ’s and audiophiles (when I could be stuffed)…. In reality I walk my dogs & watch Foxtel all day!!! Bla to real life!

The "on call" thing sucks because whilst you can snooze etc, you can't have a drink on a Friday and Saturday night when all your mates are because you are on call - I've a mate who is an electrician that has this happen all the time (works for State Rail)

You can try and get sleep but the house "big brother house" we have has around 20 people at any given time walking around having meetings and what not the only way you can sllep is with ear plugs but if a person walks past your room it moves your bed (very crappy)

my roster is 8am - 8am with 24hr "off" between days but your on call from 10pm the night before and because its Sydney / N.S.W we get called in all the time. i have more shifts that i care to remember that i have been working and awake over 24hrs straight, esp when you have to do a high risk thing like hoist people out of the bush or somthing like that. Not good for the body at all.

Have recently moved into a really cruisy Web Admin job - following my uni degree and hopefully panning out a career path.

Used to work in the entertainment industry doing technical rigging - but that shat me sideways with the stupid hours and crap people i worked for.

My 8-4:30 is working at a cafe as a barista/waiter. It's kinda fun, but after a few years I'm pretty sick of the mess and noise and coming home smelling like stale coffee and sweat (and being twenty-two and still having pimples). That said, I don't work that often... been around 2 days a week of late. Which is good and bad.

Looking for a recording studio internship, which should be much better in terms of enjoyment/work satisfaction, but will pay nada.
