    Congrats Hardstalk!

    I just got on with the AZDOC should be interesting. Great benefits and time off but I know I need to put in the hours before I can accumulate some decent PTO,
    I don't have much, but I do have passion. Land, Air, Sea, HUNT!

    Crane operator here. Going back to school though I'm ready for a secure job and some vacation time that can actually be scheduled.

    Seriously man? It's really not fair for someone to have such a cool job while the rest of us have lame jobs...

    Congratulations, sounds like a great move.

    In just about a year I will be transitioning to a new job from 29 years in the same job. (E-9/USCG)
    For the first time in 29 years I likely will not be getting paid vacation , but I should have a heck of a lot less stress!!!!!! And there shouldn't be anyone to authorize my vacations.
    Bonus: I won't be packing up all my stuff and letting movers break it every 4 years

    Ok I thought I had the coolest job on here (getting to crash around in the surf and get paid for it).
    Maybe the only thing better would be if you pilot that helo and run ski patrol on your off days!!!!!!!

    Awesome pic too.
