Do You Like To Work At Arizona?

Mon Sep 05, 2005 10:35 pm

do you like to work at Arizona as an aircraft mechanic? let's say working on overhaul for a company that hire you for 20-23bucks a hour at Tulson Arizona.

I loved Arizona! !

Besides, it's a dry heat.
I don't understand everything I don't know about this.

Tucson AZ at 20-23 bucks an hour would be good money, it is not a very expensive town-certainly nothing like SFO. It is more like a small town. But there are not that many good paying aviation jobs there (or anywhere else).

Go easy on correcting Mr. Cheng. I'm thinking English is not his first language. Trying to learn a foreign language makes one sensitive to these types of critiques. Point out the errors, but please don't be a smart ass. We can all stand to improve our English skills.

Thanks!

if you go check out the check in counters at SFO, those asian airlines like BR, CI, CX... you might find out that their english is not that good either, but they are like me, from a foreign country

Tell that to the PHX rampers when it's 120 degrees outside. I doubt they'll care what the humidity level is  Smile

Personally I love Arizona. Especially Tucson (Phoenix gets a bit hot and crowded for me). Spent 7 years in Bisbee, about 90 miles southeast of Tucson, but left a year ago for Florida..... I hope to get back to Arizona within a year or so.

Good luck!

Rarely does it hit 120 degrees. Also, your body becomes acclimated to the high temps...I moved from Michigan to Phoenix without any real problems.
Keepin' it real.

No, but it hits 105 all the time and 110 pretty regularly.

My cousin lives there and owns a bakery. I will not visit her in the summertime. I have made that mistake once. It's hot enough here in Texas, I can't bear it there.

I'm reasonably certain that rampers anywhere in Arizona will care what's the humidity level is. AZ has dry heat most of the year, and the days when the temperature hits in the 110s, you can still work in it as long as you keep your self hydrated often & not overwork yourself beyond your stamina. I've lived in AZ for 6 yrs doing housing construction, and the heat in the southern region of the state is easily adaptable to your system. Remember that you cannot shovel heat in the summer states as you would snow in the winter states.  Wink

I thought this year was an exception, over a couple days at least.

And I've heard from a few rampers otherwise about caring about the heat. And they were Arizona natives, surprisingly enough. There is a ramper at my station that transferred here after a number of years at PHX and while she will talk about the summer heat being miserable on the tarmac, she also huddles with her arms inside her shirt when the temperature drops to 60 here.

After living in Chandler for 10 months, and expreincing the heat this summer, including those days when it was above 120, I visited back Chicago area for a weekend. It was nice and green over there, but unbearably hummid, even if 30F lower.

Phoenix is hot in summer, but to me, this dry heat is way more bearable than the one that hit Chicago in the summer of 1995. Also, I'll rather take on this heat, than the freezing windchill of -20F on Midwest.

I worked at the PHX ramp few times this summer when it was over 110F. Its not easy, but it is bearable. 3 cups of water ever 20 mins, keep in shade whenever no work needed, and its bearable. There are plenty of worse work conditions.

I didn't care too much for working out in AZ, at least in the summer. Any other time was fine. Monsoon season was fine.

It really sucked though to have the soles of my shoes melt whilst walking on the Davis-Monthan flightline.
