    So i got on with a mega, been a month, loads are far in between. Paychecks have been bad, I have 5 months experience should I jump on another company? Would it make a difference?

    No, you should not jump. If I read that right it will be your 3rd company in 5 months? That’ll make things much tougher on you

    paychecks are gonna be all over as long as this thing drags out. Just do your best to ride it out

    Oh, your 1st post reads a little confusing when you say You have 5 months experience and you’ve been at the mega a month.

    any way, I guess it wouldn’t hurt to look. But definitely don’t leave your current job until you’ve got something set in stone. It’s too crazy out here right now.

    good luck, with whatever you decide.

    Hang tight, probably be the same xxxx, different shovel. Buy a classic pickup to tinker with while it's slow.
