Not sure how its setup there.


I live too far away from the City of Chicago & what is called the North side.

From me Traffic commute on a bad day take 2-1/2-4 hours each way.
Good day no traffic in the 87 vette 140 runs be there 1:15 times.


It should be worth $28 per hour Wiz.
Been seeing similar jobs paying $38 per hour on Indeed.
Winter is close.
Once snow falls commute times add on another 30 minutes to 1 hour each way.
Kids & Wife just no way.


Depending upon how its setup for you & you work it $50 to $100 per hour 2-3 hours after work each night.
Takes a toll as you away from family you recall I am sure.


Good nights working with Ed this year earlier was $100 cash.
Worked like an animal, nothing easy about Race car Fabrication work like on Tv.

One last hurdle I have to do this morning Wiz.
Get fingerprinted.
Passed the background check & physical & piss in the cup drug screen.
Then a School Bus Mechanic.
Job is local 1/2 hour drive.
Its a Big County I live in.
Larger than all of Chicago in square miles by far.
Largest in Illinois.


They shook my hand yesterday & said welcome aboard.
Not sure when I start.
Hopefully soon.


Actually have 2 jobs now.
One just outside of Joliet.


The School bus mechanic.


Take the one local.
Nicer ride for the winter.
Steady work for sure.
Fleet mechanic work is all big contracts.

Kids have to get to school.

Working local Wiz.
I am a School Bus Mechanic.
Stinking like Diesel again.
Not bad.
Easier than Semi Truck Repair.
Lots of Safety Checks.

Kinda miss the City but words can not describe how crazy it got in Chicago back June & July.
Cluster **** a start.
There is nothing wrong with being a school bus tech..



I am proud of all my titles. Even the transit bus. We are mechanics. We do what we must to survive.
