Engineering Technician Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Engineering Technician in Asheville:
"A Lot Of Stress, Time Away From Home And Low Pay."
Worked at my company for 8 years and have to maintain several certifications and oversee construction work for conformance with project specifications. I have to test concrete, building footings, soils, asphalt, CABC stone, bridge coatings. I have to inspect masonry, rebar placement, steel repair, excavations, pipe placement, fill placement. I have to closely document all work done by others in addition to myself. All this and I've meet masonry laborers that make several dollars more than myself and all they do is move mortar from one place to another.
