Hey yall. Heres my job experience.
From the ages of 15-19 I was living on the government beneficiary in NZ in a small country town.(im a kiwi). Around 17-19 I lived in town but spent
every day out in the bush, rain snow or shine. I came into town every night and cared for a disabled boy, whilst being paid a small amount for it,
this I did for the love and because I wanted to help.
I went dairy farming for about 9months, which was fun at the time, although I was working insane hours. Getting on the quad bike to start work at 3am
and getting home at about 7-8 pm! With a hour for breakfast, lunch and afternoon.
The pay was good enough, about 450NZD per week, but the hours were long and the roster was 6days on 2 days off so my weekends were unsynch to
After that I went down and lived with a mate for a couple months before moving to australia when I was 19. My father rang me one day out of the blue,
after a few years of not talking, and said to me that I have a job in Australia if I want it, working in a factory boxing bottles.
I took the plunge and moved, and after about 2 months of working in the factory I started getting pay rises and different jobs, I started blending
herbicides and pesticides and doing jobs that nobody wanted to do. Its my work ethic to do the best I can and never say no, no matter how crap it
Well because I went hard at what I was doing, after about 6 months and 2 payrises, the boss asked for me to get trained up running an Aerosol
I have been doing this for 2 and half years now and I absolutly LOVE MY JOB!!!. Its technical and problem solving, fast paced and always on the go. Im
a real hands on person and love leadership roles, and now I am running four main machines and organizing upto 5 staff members. Its great and I often
joke with my boss that I do my job for the love not money, and to be honest If I was supplied with a place to live and food in my belly I would 100%
with out a doubt go to work for free
Some people have a VERY hard time understanding me when I say this, really most people reckon Im lying, but seriously I love what I do and every day I
just stand back in awe at how lucky I am to be doing something that fills every part of my personality, even when I have been going through major
crisis as soon as I step foot in my work, everything changes, my personality becomes positive and happy and focused. The most disturbing and mentally
exhausting things can be happening to me and once Im working nothing else matters, It is my rock that has kept me together through some pretty tough
times. I really dont know where I would be if I wasnt doing what I am now.
Every morning before work I go into my boss office and thank him for the amazing oppurtunity he has given me and how much working means to me. I just
cant explain it enough. I have never met another person talk about thier job this way so I really want to hear your stories.
I LOVE MY JOB!!!!
