  • Best thing

    Different jobs everyday, no two days are the same. Good learning opportunities on jobs you maybe haven’t done before

    Worst thing

    The money is very poor for the work you put in, tools you have to buy, knowledge you’re expected to have and how quickly you are expected to complete jobs.
