Stig of the dump V's Robert De Niro as Taxi Driver?

De Niro is cooler but potential loot from the tip would be tempting. 7 days bit troubles me the most. I used to work 7 days but I dearly love my job and it was no problem- could be a drag if not and winters are pretty depressing when you are out out in the damp murk day after day with wet clothes on.
Toss a coin?

I'm guessing it's shifts that include all 7 days but only working 5 in any given?

Our local tip (council run) put up hidden cctv cameras to catch workers selling swag and taking anything of value for themselves. Happy to report nothing of the kind was caught on film :wink:

7 days a week, 9 till 4 in the winter, 8 - 5 summer. Thats the tricky bit, 7 days, no day off but home in about 4 mins.

Holidays and days off as required though.

Personally I cant see any quality of life in working 7days a week. Work to live... not live to work & all that.

You can read and write, your spelling is good, and you can count.
You would be wasted at the tip.
