Starting a new job

As some of you know, I have been a commercial roofer for about 17 years now but last Friday I interviewed for a new job and I got the job offer today!!!

Starting next week, I will finally get off the rooftops ( although I will definitely miss the majestic views) and I will be a “Dispatcher” at a National ATM company that services, repairs, sells and refills ATM machines in the southeast region of the USA.

I’m excited to not be out of town for weeks at a time anymore and be in a climate controlled environment.

This also means that I will have more time on this forum and for mixing!!!

As a guy that worked construction jobs in college and then graduated to office work, I’ll say congrats first. It is much better working in an environment where there is no reason to wear steel toes and a hard hat, where you aren’t up and down and dealing with smoke and fumes and impact all day. Second, I’ll say watch your food and activity levels. It will be easy to continue eating like a man that climbs and bangs and sweats all day, and you’ll throw on 50 lbs before you blink your eyes. Consider getting some exercise equipment for your home or a gym membership and actually use it. One thing that really helps is walking to lunch if you can or taking a 20 minute walk on a break. Also, try to eat salad or fish at lunch time instead of cheeseburgers. Good luck, office work has its own challenges, keep your opinions close, mind your P’s and Q’s, and try to stay clear of office politics. Just like in the trades, companies value people that are good earners, limit mistakes and always try to keep your eye on the money.
