Work is putting me through a day long course to be qualified to drive a skid steer. I used to operate one when I first got into construction so it’ll be fun to get back in the seat and play around again.
So far I’ve been at this job a year and they’ve put me through my 1A and now skid steer. It’s funny because I’m a utility/power electrician so I’ll likely never drive a semi and rarely use a skid steer. I’m angling for excavator training next.
Some of the guys on the crew were whining that they’ve been around longer and they don’t get sweet training and our foreman told them to stop calling in sick and work hard if they want specialized training. He went around the lunch table and pointed out that all the guys who produce get the training and the call in sick pooch screwers get passed over. He’s a good foreman.
