    What is the best tradie job that you know of?

    For me it would be boilermakers or non-destructive inspectors. Specialty welders, electricians and crane operators come in 2nd. They rent places from me while in town. 60-72 hours a week at $40/hour and a $125/day per diem. It's good money, but it's not steady money for them. They usually have a back up job when they are not doing their trade job.

    I don't know, but it sounds like those elevator repair/installation guys are top of the tradie hierarchy.

    You are probably right. I see 1-2 of them a year for a drug screen to get into a facility. I see much more of the other trades to get into the same place (100's). That implies there are fewer of the elevator guys.

    I know a union electrician in Norcal who does well, has a Nissan GT-R. Wires tech companies like Google. I am guessing this is the best.

    Elevators- most per hour but the ones I talked to dont get alot of OT if at all

    Electrical- good pay, chill work but high stress. Most the guys like their jobs. High turnover around here

    I'm a steel framer, so walls, soffits, ceilings, pony walls, track and stud style. I love my job personally but it's not for everyone. There are a million things to learn and the pace is insanely high. Lots of fussiness and changes of plans. I've literally framed out 4-5 rooms and they decide to change the layout by 2 inches so everything has to move.

    Pay is a few bucks less than the electricians but the benefits are great but I'm being honest it's not at the top of some people's list.

    Ironworkers are a bunch of egotistical neanderthals. But I am jelly they get to walk beams

    Why don't we use steel frames for anything residential? Lumber is expensive as hell and never ever straight/dry.

    By strict definition, you could say pilots and surgeons are tradies, but not really. Not enough alcoholism and domestic violence.

    idk about that elevator chit..

    you know they build every element of it? ha

    they have to go into the god damn chute at like crazy heights and build that chit like that.

    i think they have different people. like some do internal, some do the external component, but sheesh... i think it's different to think about from the perspective of it having never been created and you have to build it from scratch.

    also a lot of liability on you if that chit doesn't work

    Specialized subtrades are where it's at, NDE is one for sure and might be the best for sheer volume of work and range in different types of tests and inspections. And you have job security through regulatory requirements.

    Rig welding is wicked though in no small part because you can run as an independent contractor. We're paying carbon steel rig welders $100/hr and it goes up for people who can weld stainless and exotic alloys, but you need to subtract the cost of equipment. And you need to be good at what you do to be in demand.

    Boilermakers would be up there if they didn't all get mesothelioma as soon as they retired. Maybe plumbers?

    ****, so what do they pull down? I had one of my brothers friend who is a welder for the oil fields who pulls down 6 figs easy. They only work maybe half the year and some.

    I'm going to school to become a machinist. I like it over the other trades offered at the college because it should be easy if you have good understanding with operating computers. You are pretty much creating the same part most of the day so it can get boring but depending who you're working with you can chat all day with your coworkers... The salary $60,000 a year and you're inside a building, operating a machine, & pushing buttons for a living.
