Full-Time Jobs?

Discussion in 'Commercial Snow Removal' started by PlowboyBlake, Nov 15, 2004.

  1. I have been plowing for a few years now. I just graduated last year and have since picked up a lot of work. I am starting an apprenticeship at the end of the month and was wondering what all of you guys on here do if it snows during the daytime and you're at work. I will be working 7-3.30 and wondered what everyone does. I have mostly commercial offices and some driveways but the driveways it doesn't matter when they get done. Thanks a lot and HOPE FOR SNOW!!!!!!!!!!

    I am a full time firefighter. I am going to do some sub/fill in work for a friend who is also a firefighter and works the exact opposite shift from me. That way if it snows when I am at work he plows or when he is at work I plow. And if we get really buried one of takes the day off and both plow.

    At least that is the plan.

    Cough, cough, sneeze, sneeze...I Think I'm catching a cold....


    I've saved up enough time to take off when I need to. Worst comes to worst, I'll come down with the flu.

    I do computer work during the day but my boss lets me take any time off I need to make more money payup
     
  10. Well guys,
    I haven't even started yet. I'm not too sure about the sick days when it could snow and I haven't even worked there for a MONTH!!! Oh well, I guess I'll have to just work something out. :waving: It can be done even if I have to call Perkin's & Sons.......... Maybe Boast would be a better choice............... :rolleyes:

    I plow for a living.
    When it doesn't snow I go hunting, fishing, walks on the beach with my wife, watch TV, work around the shop, day dream, answer questions on Plowsite, look at new equipment to buy, bug the hell out of my wife, nap, pray for snow, I am planning a new house this year on the beach ware I can go fishing before breakfast for breakfast.
    Realy I can do anything I want till it snows then all hell brakes loose.

    General contractor, Custom home builder ,Snowplow contractor.When everything is running smoothly I have enough people to cover them all. Even a secretary to take the in-flood of calls during a storm. So I can just watch cartoons or whatever. But I always help wherever I'm needed most. As I am always the one called at 4:00 am because of broken equipment. Oh-well, part of the business.

    Retired from my office job last Dec 1st. Built up the snowplowing as a full time job. Added general hauling last summer and firewood this winter.

    I tell people "a little bit of this; a little bit of that and a whole lot of nothing". :drinkup:
