Willy, are you looking for a full time job or part time? What is your idea of good paying? Some people have higher expectations than others, that's why I ask.

Full time more than likely. To be honest right now I would like 30-35k. I'm young and single lol

I could probably get you a job in that range as a contractor in the plant I work in. It's in St. Charles Parish though. Actually you would make a bit more than that if you are willing to work some overtime. I will ask around at work tomorrow if you are interested. Would probably be a 45 minute ride for you though.

We have those kinds of contractors too, but I was talking about loading/unloading tank trucks and railcars. It is kind of hard to explain to someone that has never been around the type of work. But it is not hard work at all, you basically connect a 3" hose to the back of a trailer and wait an hour for it to either load or unload. Then when it is finished you do it all over again. It probably takes about 10-15 minutes to connect the hose and check all the equipment on the trailer. Railcars take a little longer usually, but not much, maybe 30 minutes to do everything, but they also take longer to load, anywhere from 2 to 6 hours depending on what you are loading/unloading. It is an easy job with pretty good pay. I think they start at about $16 an hour with raises every 3 to 6 months depending on how fast the individual learns and how well he performs his duties.

Yeah, it ain't a bad job at all. I called one of the supervisors today and he said he wold get back to me in a couple of days. I will also call a couple more tomorrow. If you don't mind the drive it won't be bad at all. I wish I would have know you were looking like 3 weeks ago, they just hired 4 people to load trucks in our unit. Ours is the easiest, everything is automated, no hoses to fool with. All you have to do is put the trailer in the correct spot and press a button, it loads the truck and tells you when it is finished. Then you press another button and the loading equipment comes out of the truck and you are ready for the next one. The example I gave earlier is what the normal loading consists of though.

I almost forgot, you would probably have to work shift work. It would be 12 hour days and 12 hour nights. There are only a few units that only load in the day time and they usually get taken quick. You would get 2 weekends a month off and only work about 6 months out of the year, not counting vacation time. Most of the shifts are 3 days on and 3 days off, 3 nights on and 3 days off. Let me know if you are still interested.

The shift work probably wouldn't work for you then. I will see if I can find something that is not on shift work. I'll let you know if I find something.
