* yes, intentional.
You could've included some other stuff too. Like maybe 'seen' instead of 'saw'...or a there/their flub.
For all in ten sieve porpoises….
Or in tents if per purses
The work is harder, dirtier, more dangerous, and more uncomfortable, but the pay is SO much better, and you won't have to deal with E-bikes, HR Karen, delusional customers.
You will be able to afford a new bicycle (and a eventually a new car) but you will also probably have less free time to ride
@axleworthington pretty sure I know which bike shop you worked at, and they don't have HR and pay well for the industry, not that they don't have other problems. also, as someone that worked in trades for a long time, there are definitely HR Karens and delusional customers. and a lot of angry alcoholics.
bike industry pay as a whole is terrible, though, I'll give you that.
almost all of the top 25 most dangerous jobs are trades jobs, and not for no reason.
I just couldn't handle peoples unrealistic expectations and bickering anymore. My mental health, my personal relationships, my time spent riding, and my wallet all love the change.
One guy fell off a roof and could not be life-flighted due to a snow storm. (ski town)
Another guy fell a long way to his immediate death off a roof and died in front of his brother who was the foreman. Tragic.
Priorities, man. But seems about right for where this industry is headed.
And this is Pinkbikes' list. If you look at SRAM's openings, there are 10 in marketing, and 30+ in engineering.
That’s the main difference when you go for an engineering oriented brand vs a flashy-trendy brand!
I'd love to move back to Denver, but I'm beyond priced out now.
The bike industry certainly isn't worse than others.
Wake up - The bike industry isn't the little bro scene it was years ago, its a growing market expected to be worth $120 billion by 2030, companies that have a product to sell need to market that product.
If you want a different kind of marketing go buy a Starling or Orange - just don't forget that their 'made in the uk' or 'made in a shed' is marketed to you too....
I'd recommend doing some research for salaries for that field and the skill level you're needing and update the listing or consider using a graphic design house instead to help refresh your branding, website, logo, graphics, etc.
In other news, holy cow Norco, a website designer has been sorely needed. The "new" website redesign last year was atrocious, Geo charts borderline unusable on mobile.
But sure, I can't see why they wouldn't give me the job over her...
Seriously, good luck with that one. I used to be limited by my realistic commuting distance unless I was willing to uproot my family. Now, it's all Slack and Zoom, so the only limitation is the minor inconveniences of differing time zones. Everyone I know is taking advantage of this and changing jobs since the only way to get decent pay bumps is to change employers.
Is this normal?!!
How uncivilized! 70-72 hours per fortnight down here. Four weeks annual leave at least too...
"Explain to the audience the advantage of 28.99mm standard..."
their tech "writing" caters to double digit IQ ADD types. Rip
Would not have guessed that, but a good way to save money I guess.
