If I was grafting doing 12 hours + a day and couldn't put food on the table I'd be out of there in a blink. Plenty of money in shooting, but no one wants to pay a fair wage.

 

Mind, the head keeper gets looked after alright!

It would interest me to know what you lads think a keeper should be paid

Enough to live ,feed yourself and a little bit left over for essentials . I don't know how much a gamekeeper gets paid it's not a profession that's ever interested me ,I want to work hard and have time to enjoy what I've earned but full respect to you lads that work that hard for very little .

the idea for me in the building trade is to train someone hard,push them,encourage them and have a laugh alone the way.pay a reasonable wage,then once thier trained id want them to stay with me.after all ive trained em .pointless them f...g off once trained cause ive treated them them like dog shite,and someone else benefits from my experiance.

The point is not treating someone like shit.....that can happen with any job. Just as much chance having a prick of a boss in the building trade as the keepeering world.

The point is being an underkeeper is tough, shit hours and for very little money. But stick at it and you can get a very good job, full control of your hours, a house and a chance to make some decent money.

I find it hard to believe in this day and age there are positions out there that you can't even feed yourself??

Wasn't getting at you mate........I was talking in general. Really in this day and age you should be making a bit of money at the end of the day.

Sounds like the place you were was chancing there luck......greedy maybe.

What was the accommodation like usually that's a good indication of the people you are working for,presumably on all those days shooting you saw a share of the tips?

Yeah I got tips but I shouldn't have to use my tips to pay bills and food etc.. Acomodation was Shan ceiling falling in kitchen wtc, shite painting, no carpets.. Boss was a greedy and tight our equipment was shite I've seen farm shoots and that with better stuff

House doesn't sound that good at all mate hope you didn't have to cover the council tax and water rates was the £170 take home or pre tax.

If anything take away the experience,you will I'm sure now take a better look at the package/shoot before committing to working there it is usually pretty obvious when you look round at interview just how you will be looked after

That's what these places prey on young lads desperate to get a job
