Construction Materials Tester Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Construction Materials Tester?

Construction Materials Tester in Richmond:
"Good work for subpar pay."
Pros: I am outside every day which I enjoy. While on job sites I am in effect my own boss, there are no direct supervisors or managers observing me while I work.
Cons: I am required to drive my personal vehicle rapidly accummulating many miles, on average an extra 60 to 70 miles per day in addition to a regular commute. There have been days that I have logged 200+ miles on my POV in a single work day. The pay is also lagging in my opinion. Starting wages are $10/hr, and raises are almost nonexistent, and is almosy unliveable in my area.
