Hi all,
I've started doing work experience for Big Mal's Landscaping on Auckland's North Shore and how it happened is 3 weeks ago I met up with my old classmate from primary school and we were discussing what I wanted to do for a job and I said I'd like to be an Arborist so she talked to her dad who works for Big Mal's and he talked to Mal his boss and she messages me via Facebook Messenger saying that her dad's boss had offered me work experience a couple of days a week and if i liked it there was a paid job for me. So I did my first day on Tuesday this week helping to mow a subdivision in Huapai out West Auckland way and I'm doing two days on Tuesday and Wednesday next week mowing somewhere in Orewa.

Welcome to the workforce!!

Iandscaping sounds like a wonderful job. I work a lot in my little garden as a hobby and I could imagine having it as a fulltime job.

Peace

Give me a 4WD front deck mower. That is not work, that is paid playtime.

If you break it, the Boss fixes it for ya!

How good's that mate!

Go for it. Enjoy.

*Congratulations* and how lucky are you!!


My grandaughter is in her third year of training to be a paramedic, it is

costing her in university fees which leaves her (ending up with debt) she

is currently working 12 hour shifts unpaid for actually doing the work

while being shadowed.



**Good Luck** to you

The good and hard work will satisfy you, I promise. It´s a good job, you´re out in the elements, fresh air, the smell of trees and sap.

It´s a job I respect very much because it´s not only all of the above but also dangerous. It´s not an ABC-scheme thing where you do repetive jobs but have to use all your experience and knowledge.

On my first day Mal the boss showed up and handed me a cardboard box filled with personal protective equipment and welcomed me to the crew and I was using the string trimmers most of the day and the trimmer I was using was a Japanese-made Maruyama one and the mower that I got to try was one of those Zero-Turn ones with a diesel engine and it was pretty easy to operate.
