I'm a Hospitality Business Manager.

Perks: Choosing when I cook (I am a qualified chef) instead of doing it all the time.
Working 38 hours/week Mon-Fri 6:30-14:30. Unheard of as a chef.
Leaves me plenty of time to do CAMS stuff, my Masters in Business and spend time with the family.

Down side.....shite pay but up to 4 times waiting over in W.A. when I want to go....maybe next year....then the Whale will go intergalactic and probably end up with a friend in the garage:D:D:D:D:D

2515


I Love working on the jets.
Perks: We get paid fantastic (and Im hopefully just about to double my base rate now my Boeing 737 License has been approved by CASA).
We get cheap flights and then we also get incredible discounts with other big airlines we have deals with.
We get to do something different every day, never know what's coming next somedays!
We travel around rescuing broken jets from time to time.
We have arguably the best looking hosties in the world to visually entertain us :D each day too!!!
Whats not to love!

Well except maybe the 4 on, 4 off 12 hour shifts (2 days then 2 nights) including xmas day etc, etc but 4 days off a week is cool!

There IS bad sides too... as with anythin mate, we have to be out in the weather Hot/Cold/Hailing no matter what as well.
We keep sending the planes out (talking on the headset to the crew while we dispatch them) gettin absolutely poured on some winter days, only time we dont is when there is lightning strikes within 10 mile of Airport!
Not like builders gettin Rained off with a bit of drizzle, and if its 40 degrees we still there too but the Perv factor increases 10x then :D so that ok.
We only drag jets to the heated hangars for big jobs or access if its too wet to climb around them!
But love every minute still!

Yeah well the Melbourne hangars were Ice blocks...I dont work there often im on Line mostly....

I know all about the Jetblast mate..., we cop it hard too the 737's Kick up a fair bit when they are taxiing away from us...and as Virgin uses the Schopf Power push units (instead of tug & Tow bars), we need to walk back behind the departing Jets to drive that unit away after dispatch so you can cop it hard!
Wet Jet blast is almost bearable in Winter (with wet weather gear on), BUT Hot jet blast on a 40 degree day sux big time!

Yeah - hot days suck - one trick I did once with a new guy is told them to put a jumper on (on a hot day) then I took a tow motor and drove in between two lines of idling jets (6-8 on each line) with exhausts from each line pointing at each other... I drove real slow and watched him cook! lol...

Ive been in Mining since leaving school. Ive been up and down the ladder in various roles at different mines throughout Qld in Gold, base metal and coal. I initially chased money but over time I changed to lifestyle (roster) which is why I went up and down the ladder. Im currently a shift supervisor in a Mine resonably close to home (still work away)
So perks are:

1. an even balance of work and rest (7 days on 7 days off)
2. Money
3. Places its taken me for work
4. Live where I want (and I have lived all over Oz due to roster)
5. Dont need to take holidays to go somewhere
6. having said that in 5, Holidays
7. free corporate private health
8. 14.5% super
9. Free travel
10. funds my interest in cars
11. enabled me to buy my dream home

Bad points:

1. Working away from home
2. working in bad weather
3. missing out on things when rostered on
4. working xmas and new year
5. Working nights
6. Flying (i have a fear of it)
7. apparently shorter life expectancy

Cons:
1) Long Hours 65-70 each week
2) Limited drinking and socializing time
3) If I'm not in bed I'm at work

That gear is nothing to compare with the new stuff out at Ulan/Wilpinjong near Mudgee and up at all the Whitehaven Mines around the Gunnedah/Narrabri region this is certainly the new Hunter Valley.
All the new plant is guided by satellite and has 3D graphs to work to in the cabin all loaded into onboard systems by the surveyors etc.

....is so interesting to hear about what you all do.

I work in the architectural industry - I design and detail precast panels for large commercial/industrial projects.

Perks :
I get to go outside and on-site with my 'baby' and she gets to pretend she's a workhorse (she loves it!!) .....of course the guys usually find us a nice 'clean' space to park:grin:

I work 99.9% of the time with guys - so much easier than women (who get bitter and twisted about anything:roll:) ....I have no patience with office politics!

I just love what I do - I'm happy:)

...btw hi BigDog - you never did let me hear the helicopter !

Luv the mining photos - closest I ever get to that size equipment is cranes.

OMG:o GR8T - can I play with your toys ???

Wow, those giant heavy mining machinery are impressive. :o

My job - general practitioner.

Best perk - Income. No, just kidding :lol: Nowaday working as a GP doctor does not earn that much money. So I have to say when I am able to diagnose the problem and apply treatment to solve the problem, it is satifastory for myself too. E.g. even simple things like blocked hearing from ear wax. When I am able to flush and clear their ears off the wax, the patients got instant satisfaction of able to hear again. I just have to remind those men that they now have no excuse of not hearing their wives anymore. :lol:

These would definitely be something to see......:)

Biggest piece of mining gear I have seen is the Drag Lines up at Singleton, Hunter Valley ... they are impressive. Was a shock to see the floods near Rockhampton and see photos of only the top of a Drag Line sitting above the water.

http://i1217.photobucket.com/albums/dd393/E34ME/untitled.jpg

This photo gives you a size comparison to a D7 Caterpillar Dozer so you can see how much water there must have been during the QLD floods.

That was actually at Ensham Mine in 2008, not the current floods. Its 40km north west of Emerald. I worked nextdoor to that with Anglo American at German Creek. It took along time to recover that dragline because the EPA wouldnt allow the Mine to pump the water out.

That certainly isn't new technology. German Creek in Central Qld has both Satellite and radar for the same equipment. Satellite is good except for when you get extreme dust or fog. It is unable to detect the machines so it has to switch to old fashion radar. At PNG (Porgera)they've been using it since the 90's to know exactly what their machinery is doing and where it is. Where I used to work at Century mine (North west Qld) it also uses this but also cant detect through bad weather. The machines have to be stood down during electrical storms due to their sheer size as lightning gets pretty severe. There was an email doing the rounds years ago which had one of our dump trucks with the front wheels off the ground because a digger operator loaded it. The truck drove up the ramp to the ROM and the weight lifted the front wheel roughly 6ft from the ground. This is in a 240 tonne dump truck (which was huge in 1999/ 2000)

Although most things on here I find funny, I dont sit here and laugh by myself. On this occasion I did. Well done aka.

Here is Century Mine where I used to work. Also the photo of the truck that had the huge rock put in the back. The pix of the truck running over the car was a demonstration of why it is important to use positive communication when entering the work zone. Every few years they'd run over a cruiser just to prove a point. If anyone here has worked for Roche or REJV you may have seen the video during inductions. Well Century was where it happened

It's more a hobby than a job, way too much fun to be work so here it is...mmmm I've been thinking about how to phrase this bit.... getting paid to beat up other people's kids?
But then, I don't get paid to beat up my own too... teaching karate can be such fun lol.
....... and for the record, after a while they are giving it back to me so I guess I'm doing a good job on the teaching side hahaha. And yes, grown ups can be fun too, definately funny sometimes but rewarding all the same.
