EggRoll House- 3 years

Landscaping/ tree nursery- 3 years

Task Master general contractor- 1 year Various Remodeling jobs

Highway Equipment Company- 6 months -Company is a joke

Ma and Pas Construction Inc- 6 months Mainly roofing

L&P Painting Inc.- Industrial, doing anything from tank linings, scaffold building, sand blasting painting walls, high pressure (40,000psi) water blasting, Industrial flooring, Ceramic insulations, Zinc and Epoxy coatings, you name it pretty much.

T&K Roofing- 3 days. I was one of the few guys with a drivers license so I got the advantage of getting to do alot of equipment deliveries and hauling things etc, but the third day they wanted to start me in on a roof project that would take us over a year to complete. It was a hot tar roofing project that included the removal of the existing asbestos roof. I did that for one day and said screw it. I am all about working hard and being proud of what I do but no way was I doing that ****. Health hazzard and ridiculous working conditions. No one was wearing masks or anything, it was like these bastards were just morons through and through.

Now I work for Tri-State Painting, we do all comercial work, mostly new construction its great clean easy work compared to the Industrial side of things. Very flexible and layed back, I love it.

I go back to school this fall for Construction Management.

Some of the earlier listed jobs overlapped or were simultanious.
