40

Thank you comment icon Hey Juan! Thanks for answering this question! It's good to know there are Professionals like yourself here trying to help students who are interested in construction! I'm curious if there's a distribution of your 40 hours a week? What can Ethan expect to be doing for 40 hours every week? Any recommendations or next steps you'd encourage him to take since he's interested in this career path? Thanks! Jordan Jordan Rivera, Admin COACH

David’s Answer

Like all professions, your wage and hours depend greatly on location and the company you are employed with. If you live in a city where there is lots of construction or you are willing to travel you will work as many hours as you are willing. Be clear during your interview that you would appreciate maximum hours and a willingness to travel and you should not have any problems finding overtime hours on your pay stub.

David recommends the following next steps:

Being affiliated with a union will present many employment opportunities as well as career specific training. Or you can research large projects in your area to find who is contracted to perform equipment operations and contact the sub contractors yourself.
Have a list of questions you want answered when making contact and during the interview process. i.e. wage and hours expected.
