I've been working with heavy equipment the past 8 months. I now know how to run Enddumps which i actually hate. But, I've logeda lil over 200 hours on excavators rangen from Bobcats mini excavator which was great to learn on to Hitachi's 330zaxis . I've worked with the bobcat T250 turbo for the past 3 months. And the jon deere 450 dozer , cats Dh4 and D5c. I've operated the 963b and 963c loaders. And lets not forget about the machine I think everyone starts out on in a big excavating company the roller. Gotta love um i think. But, my question is would i be better off trying to get into the union or non-union job?
