Started as a painter helper and worked my way up to 1st class painter, foreman and now inspector. I've learned alot from diferent people and have used it to my advantage. The coating industry is a very large one, and if willing anyone can stay busy.
There has been opportunities
The time you have to away from home from time to time
The work was good but I only recommend it as a first work experience in your professional career but not to maintain it. This types of job is good because the companies are well known but if you want to develop is not so recomendable. However you learn a lot in terms of languages and job culture.
