I cannot stand by looking at this section not having had any posts or threads at all.

Wiring up shops is the best job in the world of being a sparky. Loads of money, its easy, little mess and it can be a real fun job. Far better than house bashing, no Part P(iss), no need to be registered and each one you can tinker with new ideas in all sorts of areas of experimentation.

So there :p

:^O

Agree, I have been shop fitting for the last year and its a doddle compaired with my usual stuff i.e schools & hospitals. Its much faster and it pays more and i'm never in the same town for more than 8 weeks at a time.

Yes the finishing can be a bit rough but not on the electrical side,

well not on any of my jobs anyway :)

Agreed that the pressure to 'open up soon' is always there but then it starts before the owner has even purchased to premises. Tends to only happen with the small shop owners. Over eager to start making their fortune flogging junk to Joe Soap public over-rides sensibility. I have found that the larger the chain the more sensible they are as they are well aware of all the regs (not just the lecky regs) such as Supermarket chains etc

Oh I dunno about that - Interstate 405 down in Sth LA takes some beating. When I commuted that route back in the late 80's you could see people reading newspapers, shaving, eating breakfast, drinking coffee and sometime all at the same time. And I was one of them :^O
