Wow. It's been a while and still no response. Soooo, here ya go...
It can be great... It can suck. For me, it sucked when I was working GA making 8 bucks an hour with no benefits. Also, I hated 3rd shift. But it was great when I was at a regional airline as a lead mechanic working the 1st shift line. A good schedule, overtime pay, and flight benefits go a long way. More recently my A&P, "knowing a guy", being in the right place at the right time, and a little luck allowed me to work on the Space Shuttle for a couple years.
If you aren't happy where you are, tough it out a little longer, something will change---> You will get laid off, promoted, or find a better job. I was laid off from 4 different companies in 6 years but I never missed a paycheck. It actually worked out better each time because my friends became my 'bosses' or vise versa.
The best thing though, if your married, you have an excuse to spend some money on nice tools!
