What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Carpenter in Bellingham:
Show up on time. Be observant so you learn what needs to be done on a job so you can help get things done without having to be told, cleaning work area, proper safety and tool care. Time is money, and safety and neatness help company with regulatory officials, insurance companies, and most of all customers who refer you to more business and often become your friends.

"Share Your Skills With New Carpenters."
Work hard and try to learn something every day and pass your skills to others.
Carpenter in Manchester:
"Being Good At Your Job Is Not Always Good For Advancement."
If you are too good at your job it's hard to be replaced so you can take on a different roll in the same company. They tend to rely on you in the position you're and not allowed you to move up.
I would suggest that you become good but keep an eye on your future path so you do not get stuck where you are.
Carpentry has been a great field to be in and would advise anyone that likes to work with their hands to do this job. It does have it's rewards.
