    Ehhh about $1200 gross. None of those big paychecks I was getting used to.

    (Then again...a set start time is AMAZING, so I should probably shut up.)

    Last week was 11 or so, this week has been about 10.

    Although there was a special run on Sunday that very nearly killed me over the course of 13 hours. Probably my worst day at the company. Lol

    Thats still decent. Set times are nice. I know I'm years out from having that. I heard the sweet spot is top of the on call board.

    Got a 2 am this morning for a relay point meet. Oh the joys...
     
    Texas_hwy_287 and LtlAnonymous Thank this.
