"Get out now..kidding...kind of."
Fire Alarm Technician in Tyler:
Pros: You will work in different cities/towns pretty much everyday but get to go home pretty much every night. Get to work with your hands. Also there are different licenses you can get in time to earn more.
Cons: If you get licensed you will probably get a "helper" and if they suck, your job will be 10x harder. Its usually pretty hot or cold depending on the weather and long days.
