YZRiderF Posted October 31, 2011 Share Posted October 31, 2011 Hello everyone, Currently I am workin at a very busy level 1 trauma hospital as a Rad Tech I take the x rays. I have been there for 6 months and I really do not like my job, I feel like it is mostly due to the place I work. The pay isn't great, the supervisors are always on you, doctors are always talking down to you. I currently am in the process of training for MRI on my own time at the community college. However, my girlfriends stepdad works construction and is a foreman. He makes great money. He said there was a spot open and I was interested he said he doesnt want me to quit my job right away, he wants me to come and work with him on days off and see how I like it. The pay is prevailing rate which means it changes from job to job. But usually is between 25-30 dollars an hour. The bad part is no benefits and no retirement plan. I really dread going to work everyday I feel unhappy there and want out. I feel like I can get out and make good money at this job, with potential to move up to other rankings like an operator and make around $38 an hour. Which I feel is great money. I just feel uncertainty due to the chance of being laid off due to weather or lack of work. Also, no benefits worrys me some. But a perk would be four ten hour days and no holidays Anyways any thoughts? Anyone go through something similar? Thanks! Link to comment
