6 years ago, I started working for a temporary work repair that specializes in construction works.
It was severely difficult to find a job in the construction industry due to the unions.
I needed a way to get our foot in the door and I knew that a temporary work agency would be our best bet. I spent more than five months working for dimes and nickels before I got noticed, and the boss asked me to work full time and I acquired benefits like dental, vision, and medical insurance. I switched from the temporary work agency to a position with the construction contractor. I’ve been with that same commercial construction contractor for the past more than five years and I have gotten more than one promotion. I started working as a laborer, cleaning up around the worksite. After I was hired full time, I learned how to hang drywall. Now I have a crew of 25 guys that are in our charge and I am the head of the drywall division. One of those 25 contractors is our boss’s idiot son. The kid clearly has not done a single difficult morning of work in 20 years. He complains and whines about every work that he has to complete! Last week, he was hanging drywall in a basement and he fell asleep next to the boiler. I wanted to suspend the guy for a couple of mornings, however our boss said no. Anyone else would have been fired on the spot. One morning this guy is going to be our boss and that makes me assume a little frustrated, a little ill and a lot miserable.
