  • What would you do???

    So today was my 2nd day at my new job. During break I went to the store to get a drink and started talkign to this guy in line. I told him that I am suposed to be painting but have only been mowing grass the past 2 days. I said "but I would rather do that anyways" he said "Really? you want a job?" I said. "Um this is only my 2nd day here, why you looking for people?" he said he was needing crew for landscaping. He asked what I was making painting, and I told him Start at $8/hr He said "$8/hr?!?!! I'll start you at $10 and bump you to $15 if you work hard.



    So now, should I go to this guy and make better money, or should I stay with the painting?

    Unless painting is a passion of yours that you can't bear to be without, I would go where the money is!

      $$$$$$ It's only been 2 days, no loyalty should exist yet!

      it's what they are like in their HEART!

        ^^^ Good points, and I dont mind painting houses but it's far from my prefered job choice.

        I talke dto my wife and she said she didn't mind if I took the new job. I just don't want to be looked at as a "Job hopper"

          don't worry about looking like a job hopper, go where the $$$ is, if that's what you want to do. You left you last job because (well many factors but...) you were not paid enough, now it doesn't seem that you are doing what you were hired for. If you would prefer landscape go there...you never know where that one will lead...after all, the video store (indirectly) lead you to the house painting, and the housepainting (which turned out to be lawns) led you to this next oppertunity...maybe there is a reason for all of this.
          just my 2 cents.

              I suspect both types of work are seasonal, but house painting more so (correct me if I'm wrong). Save for a rainy day and go w/ da money.
              I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
              That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

                Well. you cant paint outside a house in the rain, but theres always indoor work. But you can do landscaping in a light-mild rain. You can do in-door paint jobs in the winter but you cant do landscaping in the snow.

                So they both have ups and downs.

                  Add that to the fact that a house needs painting once every 5-10 years, depending on the quality of paint and cheapness of the owners.
                  A lawn needs mowing (at least up here) every 5-7 days. It NEVER quits!
                  Caveat - I'd still rather work for a Real firm and real wages than some fly-by-night company that pays you under the table. If you've got a real deal, I'd follow the $$$!
