opportunity?!?!??
    #2584553 - 04/20/04 10:29 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

heh guys
I have a possible opportunity this summer and I cant seem to decide what to do.
Ever since I have been of working age I have wanted to go work in Alaska
..my aunt and uncle used to tell me about it.

Anyway, I would leave June 1st and return in September
7 days a week
12-18 hr days..
800-1000$ a week  :cool:

i know its gonna suck..but its hard to pass that kinda money up
..plus im used to hard work

the promblem is
i feel like my life is just taken a great turn
and i really want to do some things this summer
I am working a decent(1500$ a month) job
and most importantly i dont want to miss the gathering :frown:

So what you think about it now after listing the pros and cons?

Reminds me of this time at a bus stop. Ended up in a conversation with a lady heading back from Alaska. She'd been working up there for the summer. There's a lot of lonely men up round there and money to be made. Anyhow, 7 days a week >12 hours, only $1000 a week? I'd say no, unless you're starving or homeless. Even then, I'd say you should hold out for more money. Is that cannery work or working on a boat?

Don't let them pressure you into signing up right away.

    I'd agree also. 80+ hours a week will turn you zombie pretty quick,especially after you hook up with the local speed dealer in order to work 80+ hrs. :lol:  You never answered....what kind of work???
