Irrigation Technician Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Irrigation Technician in Avon:
"Does Not Meet State Minimum Labor Laws."
We have no breaks, and are told to "eat as we go" for lunch. So... no breaks and no lunch. Most often we are kept late at night and asked to be exactly on-time the next day; not logical. Furthermore, we are "asked" to work on days off. Not happy here.
