Quoting Dude, you Fugly!:" That's cool, my SO is in construction as well, he's a contractor. Mainly building custom, residential homes, but has done some commercial work."Ah, so he knows the stress of this business!! Were in commercial, we do maybe 5% of residential yearly. But I think construction in general is stressful. Im praying after I have this baby SO will have a job, a GOOD job and I can quit mine. I cant be in this field forever with 3 kids, its to demanding and I never have time for my kids.
Quoting Dude, you Fugly!:" Does he work really long shifts? My ex-husband was going to get a job doing that, but the hours were ... [snip!] ... hours were crazy and he would be away from home more than he would be home. So he didn't take it. The money was great though. "Yes hours are long and he does do a lot of overtime that he volunteers for. An example is on day shift he will go in around 4 am and get home around 5 pm. And on 2nds he goes in at 2 pm and doesn't get home till anywhere between 1-4 am on average sometimes later. And then he works a lot of weekends too, but yes the money is great haha. I honestly don't notice it much on days but 2nds suck but that shift sucks for a lot of people.
