  2. Depends on what you consider the best. Remember, a person who is happy in what they are doing isn’t necessarily doing work, or a job.
    With that said I work in film and tv :D

  3. I'd have to say what I'm doing now. If I didn't enjoy it, I wouldn't be doing it.

    I'm a landscaper, largely dabbling in hardscape and other installations - fountains, decks, Bali huts. I've been doing this for about a decade. I get to work outside with my hands all day, right up my alley.

    I spent a number of years bartending in different places. Always a fun gig, but the hours are quite shit. It blows missing every event because you don't get off until 2 AM. I worked in some cool bars though - backpacker party bar in northern Australia, cozy Scottish pub in Edinburgh, live music venue in London.

    I was a firefighter too. Brilliant and rewarding experience, but I hated the management. And the fucking union. I was no saint at the time either. I really wish I could look back on it more fondly.

  4. Best job I've had was working night shift at a warehouse... It sounds boring as fuck but the managers let you smoke weed & everyone was pretty laid back + the pay was good :laughing: :confused_2:

    For me...my current job. Working in the cannabis and hemp industry as a Grower. I get to work with plants that I love. I get to work with my hands. I'm almost always high. The pay is adequate. The benefits are amazing ( paid medical, dental, vision, life insurance, disability, 401K fully vested, monthly stipend in to a fitness account). Awesome employee samples once a month. PTO that accrues faster than I can use it. Yeah, this job has been good to me.

    Today's Forcast... Partly Cloudy With A Chance Of Amber.

  7. Best pay i ever got was literally shovelling shit. Bird shit removal. Fuckin terrifying amounts of money to be made doing that. Few hundred quid a shift for the labourers. Make a fuck ton doing bird proofing aswell. Fitting nets n spike strips stuff like that. Get an easy 2k a week doing that when the goings good. Hard to get into though, especially if you fucked off the first time lol.

  10. Copywriter. It was my first proper job when I graduated. And best boss ever. Our biggest client once said: "Why don't you as one of your girls bla bla ....". My boss replied: "I don't know what girls you have working for you, but I only have grown women working for me."

  11. I was a subcontractor for many yrs, siding and roofing. While yes it was the most physically demanding job it was also the best one I've had. My saying was its not a good day if you're not dirty, sweaty, or bloody. Well most days were all 3. Now I just sit around watching machines run and I've been losing my damn mind!

  18. Union ironworker , current . After 26 years of being a structural / reinforcing ironworker , the job I love has beaten me up pretty good. Everything from bone spurs and feet issues to major knee and shoulder surgeries . I still love what I do but am getting ready to hand over the reins to the next generation of ironworker and looking to do something a little less taxing on my bod. 9-11 first responder. Bucket brigade... Indescribable. Also erected the new Freedom towers just to name a couple of projects . Made a great living and outstanding bennies . I love what I do but every day definitely feels like work lol ~ vape
