Finish Carpenter Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Finish Carpenter in Salina:
"Money."
The pay never increase.

Finish Carpenter in Vernon Hills:
"Nonenone."
None make sure you don't work for a jerk who doesn't appreciate you.

Finish Carpenter in Fayetteville:
The work is not worth the pay. You will do everything including buying tools picking up guys who don't work as hard as you or show up on time and miss days frequently. You will earn 3% of what your boss is making and he will never be seen . This is only a good job if it is you getting the jobs and paying employees. The rich get richer and pass along no appreciation to the hard working employees. You will struggle to make ends meet and be physically and emotionally destroyed. It is only a temporary solution to having no income and holds no rewards benefits overtime payed vacation or anything someone who wants to build a successful career wants. Unless your dad owns the company you will never make more than 14-16 and hour and that's non taxed money you will incure thousands of dollars of debt each tax season you will owe in. I didn't even list the health issues you will encounter from the material dust you breath physical strain, unmaintained tools and falls from hights if you live.

Finish Carpenter in Newport Beach:
"Gas would be so much and no gas compensation for my work."
Stay in school get your degree this isn't fun anymore.

Finish Carpenter in Fenton:
"Contract negotiation/getting money down before I started a p."
Learn quality not quantity. Don't rush. To perform at a high level and do custom work (I.e. Curved Stairway. Crown Molding, Libraries) It takes time. Be patient and do it right the first time. Take pride in your abilities ( don't give them away) Meaning, don't short change yourself and work for pennies. Your ability to do what you do took years to learn through ups and downs. Don't be the low baller. Always adapt and continue to learn. But most importantly listen. Listen to customers and what they want and deliver at the highest level possible.
