Started a new job a few weeks ago, (lgv multi drop stuff) its bareable, getting better but they do make you work hard. Advertised as 45 hours but doing more like 50+ and im told this is the quiet period.

Went for a job int on tuesday (whilst i was ill) and got it!, dustman!!! bit smelly, less money, 6 grand less! But wicked hours, get payed for 40 and charge it so more like 32/35. They seem like a good bunch that dont take things 2 seriously too.

So what do you think? money and stress or me time!

Anyone bin a dustman/ woman haha ?

Bin man, no stress, no hassle, no lifting, fresh air, sounds ideal.

My husband did a multi drop job which was for 40 hours a week plus 'complulsory' overtime. He didn't stay long!! A job is supposed to pay for your fun - no fun if you're too tired.

Go for dustman. Our dustman have become quite popular recently and the talk of the school playground as they have pink lorries in aid of breast cancer!

If you can manage on the lower wage then definitely go for it, what's the point of earning a fortune if you're going to be so stressed and tired that you'll never get to enjoy it? Definitely take quality of life over riches anytime.

if you can afford to take less money id go for a life on the bins. you will have to watch "common as muck" as part of training!!!

its hard phsycal work, defo lifting involved! where was it that the bin men were being wimps again? forgot about that storey. Id like an orange wagon i think.

i thought everyone would say this, id say the same thing but its a hard one when its your big decision. I expect you lot could downgrade your jobs easy anough.

I gave up a well paid job 18 month's ago because it was rubbish.

Good Luck with what ever you decide :thumbsup:

Waste and recycling operative every time. Gives you more disposable time = work/life balance.

It's only in this country that some pin brains can't see the dignity that exists in every job and every walk of life.
