I knew what I was getting in to when I signed up at the temp place. I figured they were going to send me to crappy jobs that I would hate, but I did not expect them to be quite as hard as the one I have been doing this week. I have been working for this place that is doing commercial roof installation in Bergen county NJ and the truth is that since I know almost nothing about the job they are using me as a beast of burden. We have been working on the top of this huge factory roof. It must be about five acres in size, with all sorts of features. It has a lot of stuff poking out of it and these are belching smoke of some kind quite often, pretty sure it is venting some sort of nasty stuff from the processes they do.
At any rate we are going up and down this huge ladder that is built on to the side of the building, the fire escape gets us most of the way up there. The factory lets us us their huge forklift when they do not need it and that gets stuff a good way up. However it leaves a good fifteen feet between the top of the stairs and roof. We rigged up a rope and pulley for some of it, but most of the time a person is going up and down that ladder with buckets of stuff and tools and whatever else they want brought up there. Of course we start out with three or four trucks loaded up with different materials and tools. Everyone else is important, but the only thing I am really good for is grunt work like this and so I getting beat down.Take A Peek
