I know that most of you are now in your thirties and picking for Amazon or Shipt if you actually have your own car. Want to work for me loading parts into a lathe in a hot machine shop? Easiest fucking job you will ever have.

  1. Not a sex offender requiring registry.
  2. Can make a simple spreadsheet and navigate windows 7.
  3. Can use tape measure and calipers. (Will train)
  4. Will show up by 7:00. This probably should have been #1…
  5. Doesn’t play Rogan podcast for others to hear. You get free BT hearing protection.
  6. Can lift 45 lbs.
  7. Can tell me what 45 pounds is in kilos without google.
  8. Not a sissy boy. You’re going to get dirty once in a while. And it’s hot af in July.
  9. Can show up to interview not high. Generally you can’t be fucked up at work.

Pay starts at $15/hr training if you know absolutely jack shit. Goes up from there to $32 when you are doing your own setups and own tools, etc.

So why the fuck is not one biting? Seems like this beats the hell out of most other entry level jobs without a degree. Does fucking Lyft have benefits now or something? Know what my interview test is? Show me how you drill a hole in this aluminum block. Really. And people walk right out the door.

I wonder what cutting edge job you perform with your communications degree?

No, we don’t Use windows 7. Some of these controls use embedded windows with custom GUIs. If someone can figure out how to find and move a file on windows XP or 7, they are probably teachable. I have a feeling you might struggle with it. One kid tried to actually sweep the screen like a god damn iPhone.

Yeah that’s fair. I don’t make the call on pay, but that $15 would be for someone with zero experience that is being trained in for 2 months I think. If you have any experience at all it would be at least $20 to start. If you can actually do setups that is a different pay schedule completely. The ultimate goal is to find someone who can setup and eventually program something like in pic. That takes years but pays real money.

If you're saying people can come on knowing absolutely jack shit, but then you require them to feel comfortable drilling a hole in any kind of metal (something few people have any reason to do in their normal life), you're throwing away good potential workers. That's like 0.01% of the people in the world off the street.

#10 apparently is "already know how to drill a block in aluminum." You may as well put that as #1, because you don't actually seem to give a shit about the rest.

A better way would be to see how they train. "Do you know how to drill into aluminum? If you don't, it's OK. I'll teach you now." Then pay close attention to how well they listen to directions, and how well they can execute based on those directions. If you have a good feeling about them but they just need training, that can turn into a good employee. Stop expecting so much out of people, ffs. This is a service economy. Nobody knows how to use their hands in 2022, but some can be taught.

Yeah, you would fail that test. All I expect is that someone show a willingness to ask questions if they can’t describe how to operate a common drill press. The point is to see if they are intimidated by the equipment, environment, materials, etc. You sound like someone that can’t even conceptualize the simplest metalworking task and would throw a hissy fit in an interview rather than be humble and own up to being a sissy.

Yes and no. Warehouses in Flyover country, US pay $11 to $20 and burn people out quick. Those are jobs where you will never learn anything and are strictly a worker drone, you get UAs, have quotas, no phone or music, work shit hours and management flexes on you over petty shit.

This job will train you as much as you are willing to learn, has reasonable eight hour shifts, and doesn’t even expect you to be productive in any way for like two months to start. Then you get a raise for not quitting or being a fuckwit. And loading parts into a cnc lathe or mill is probably safer than working around forklifts and kiva robots tbh. But yeah I still get it. Were it up to me any trades job would start at $24 just to get people interested again and hopefully going to trade school.

I’ve considered this. It’s all synth coolant so it’s better than most. Floors are pretty bad and the building is old, but the machines are relatively new and stay clean. I once worked in a place with emulsion coolant that was fish oil based I think. It was super clean and had no fishy smell right up until it went bad, then it smelled like rotten pussy. This one guy would spit his chew in the tank and I think it was basically permanently contaminated after that. Don’t remember him lasting long there. Any way, long term goal is to go to an air/vegetable oil mist-through-tool system. That’s completely dry and nothing ever needs cleaning.

Or you will just have to bite the bucket and tell them to stop over massing, it's one or the other, don't expect people to lower their standard of living beyond what god has given us naturally just because of the mass, that's blasphemy.

How many of you can identify a torque wrench and know what it is used for? Maybe 420chan is the wrong place to be asking questions about this kind of labor. For that matter, how many of you have changed your own oil? How many have worked a full time job?

I spent 4 years as a grocery store truck unloader and shelf stocker, 2 years as a loan shark/repo man, 3 years as a rural WISP install/repair tech, and am now fixing/installing/maintaining copy machines and warehouse fetch robots for an international conglomerate.

Pic related. I got paid $15 to climb rusty antenna towers, crawl under houses, and drive a bucket truck by myself. Rain or shine, hot or cold. Your pussy press at least requires a roof above it. After being a traveling technician for half a decade I literally cannot stay in one place all day, much less sweat like a pig to lathe out metal doo-dads.

Thank you for the suggestion, but I did not like the climbing aspect of the job. It did feel good to get over a primal fear of heights and it did give me something to brag about I guess, but it was strictly so I didn't become homeless.

One of those shifted from straight up to a 45 degree angle when I was 50' up it. The people who put it up didn't bolt that section together properly and it finally gave when I climbed up it. Talk about shitting your pants. I was 100% sure I as about to die in that moment. Not a fun job for me.

I see a picture on that barrel, were you in the white box and that was tilting? why is it installed in the first place? I probably would have accidentally jumped out of it to save myself.
if you are not completely turned away from securing in heights by that, rock climbing could definitely be something you could like. it might be technical, precise but also rewarding because you see immediate results and as a person of action this might be fitting.

>do you guys know how to use blue collar tools?
>totally ignored the earlier post that it's 2022, we live in largely a service economy

I could make an educated guess what a torque wrench is, but I truly don't know off hand. I've only changed my oil a single time on my own (when a family member insisted on teaching me), but it seemed like a lot of shit to move around, unscrew, etc. And it was dirty as fuck. There's probably carcinogens in that shit too.

Meanwhile I can get an oil change for as cheap as ~$15 if I'm willing to wait a few hours, or ~$22-35 if I want it done in 30 minutes. It even includes a free multi point check to see if there's anything major fucked on my vehicle. It's something I'm unlikely to need to do during an emergency/the apocalypse (compared to say changing a tire, which I can do confidently).

So subconsciously I just tossed all those memories in the trash. It was a waste of memory space.

I'm just trying to make you realistically aware how non-self-sufficient most younger US humans are in 2022 when it comes to trades work.

I have a graduate degree in a white collar-related field, late 20s.

That's the bucket of a bucket truck. You ride in it to access things up high. It's controlled with hydraulic oil lines and the pressure is routed to move the bucket. That pic in particular was someone mounted a receiver on the far eave of a two-story house surrounded by thick foliage. I had to raise the bucket up, hop out of it, and use it to lean on a steep roof because it's the only way my short ass could reach the receiver. OSHA can suck my dick. I get the job done.

I have an entire album worth of countryside pictures I took from that job. Pic related. A flooded road that was just receded enough to let me through.


I don't get you or the OP's attitudes. The OP was blindly posting on a dead stoner imageboard asking why all the namby-pamby fodder people he thinks are on here don't hit him up to work in a sweltering machine shop...and you are flexing about having no hard skills and being completely subservient to those who do because you can't be bothered to leave your particular high level of abstraction in society.

I mean there's probably something to every generation in a technically advance democracy getting softer and softer, but we're always gonna need people to repair utilities, autos, clean toilets, build and repair structures....and plenty of young people I've met recently certainly have trade skills because that's the conditioning they were raised with. This problem can also be exacerbated depending on whether you find yourself in a metro area (itself a virtual reality if you think about it) or a rural area where people are forced to develop those skills more often simply to survive.

So OP can keep sweating in a dusty shrapnel shop and you can keep getting charged at the mercy of people with the skills you lack or simply cannot be bothered to practice. Live goes on.

>flexing about not being self-sufficient

I don't know kw how you came to the conclusion that it's a flex or ego stroke. It was just an attempt at a reality check that he clearly ignored once already.

>skills I can't possess or can't be bothered to possess

I was suggesting that said skills aren't inherently the most value use of one's time, energy, or memory capacity, IN THE CONTEXT of non-commercial uses. So he's dumb for saying we will accept anyone, when he meant we will accept anyone with an arbitrarily dictated minimum of tradeswork/tool experience.

You saw ego stroking where there was none. I don't feel special, that's the whole point of my post. I'm not special; my type of skill set (or lack thereof) is extremely common in 2022. OP has unrealistic expectations of what "no skill/experience" actually means.

Yeah that’s really what the thread was about. Jokes and ego stuff aside, I’m just really curious if anyone out there in his (her?) early twenties has any interest in or aptitude for any of this stuff. This seemed like a good place to ask since most people here are in the US, have some degree of computer literacy and are maybe thinking about careers or are tired of being broke bums.

But honestly guys, don’t be like me. If you learn a trade, be an electrician, they have the last good union. The only way to make money as a machinist is either apprentice at a big ass legacy company (getting rare in the US) or start your own job shop, usually requiring “a small loan” from daddy and shilling software on YouTube to keep the lights on.
