Great advice do your best to follow it and remember there are lots of contractors like I was who would fire the longest employee in my crew for ever showing disrespect to a client. Sir and Mam are the easiest customers names you will ever need to know, and finally always let your boss know if the customer may have a complaint.

(1) When you're working for an employer, you're not there to make money, you are there to make your employer money. Give him his money's worth. If you're new to the trade, let him know first thing that you're there TO WORK, and then work your ___ off. Show him you're interested, that you want to learn, that even if you make a hundred mistakes, don't make the same mistakes over and over again. Keep your head in the game. (2) If you're tired, stick it out. Pour on the coals and see it through. You have to build up your stamina. The best way to shorten your day and "kill time" is to work it to death. Invest in a gallon water container, even though you may or may not get to take a drink for what will seem like hours. Come home and first thing take your shower, unless you have pressing "swing shift" duties. Get to bed early and get your rest. Tomorrow you will be glad you did. (3) Construction is a rough and competitive business. Make up your mind that you will pay your dues and that you will succeed. It can also be a rewarding and satisfying occupation, so learn to work, and learn to love work for the rewards it pays. You will learn about yourself, your shortcomings and your capabilities, and you will learn about LIFE, if you're paying attention. Don't follow the bad habits and example of guys who are always swearing, complaining, unthankful, and miserable, "living for the weekend" and show up just to put in their time to pick up their paycheck. People like that bring only problems and complications upon themselves. You will end every day worn out, sweaty and dirty, with blisters under your new toolbelt and on your feet, but be thankful for your opportunity. You HAVE to work anyway, so be thankful to God, and let your boss know your thankfulness and positive attitude, which will serve for your best your entire life. Remember, you're playing the "long game' with your eternity in view. In such "labor," there is profit. (4) Wherever possible, seek work-partners and acquaintances that are "better than you." Bad company corrupts good morals. You might get stuck working with some unpleasant people. Maintain your integrity, however, and make the best of it -- that's part of the package and part of your learning experience. (5) Do EVERYTHING that Cody has said. The rest, you will have to learn on your own.

Not religious, but I would say pretty spot on rules to work by. Only rule I break at work is the cellphone thing but not to mess around, we have all our prints digital, makes revisions and updating prints easier than carrying around full size prints to see everything on a job as big as the one I am currently on, so we frequently are pulling up prints on phones, tablets, ipads, whatever we have. Also helps when you are half blind to zoom in on a tablet so a whole room is super big and easy to read.

Also don't go drunk to work or before no one likes to work with drunkards, addicts to methadone. Supervise tools on worksite there are always thieves and people forgetting/taking tools you need and for that matter play inter-teams, tools are limited. Bring ideas how to fasten work not cutting leaves to dogs like in commie countries with drunkyard/time stealer leaders in teams...PS you're working in West have an insight of the productivity onwork...adjust your attitude accordingly in a positive matter...Use protection equip with Ham cord-equip safely and correctly...your life is more important and safe work is more important on high altitudes on scaffold or a fine awaits you which could cut off your temper...etc Batteries always on charge and full for whole day of work...

Don't touch someone else's tools. The biggest items are anticipate what others are doing and if you need to go fetch something do it as quickly as possible. People hate it when they are stuck under a sink waiting for a part and you are outside looking up something on your phone when your supposed to be fetching a part.

If you're really passionate about your work, you shouldn't have to turn your phone off, but if you're using it when you shouldn't, then do whatever you have to do stop. I wouldn't advise running in a chaotic place but I'm not a carpenter. Seems a bit dangerous to run in a place like that. If you're getting injuries then it doesn't much matter how much you impress the boss, it's probably not worth it. I'm not sure how much it applies to real carpentry, but if you're an control systems engineer working on site, the big thing to know is that you are not at an office anymore, and paid projects are not your personal resume demo reel. Get the job done, make it work reliably, don't interfere with people's jobs, and don't run ten thousand wires instead of one digital cable because you just had to do things the hard way, and don't expect everyone to change their entire process to accommodate whatever you want to install.

Agree with everything except the lunchtime phone thing, it's your lunchtime you can do whatever you want in that time frame, if you wanna kick back and check your emails etc then you have every right to. I completely agree it shouldn't be touched during work hours but lunch is off the clock, that's your time to relax.

Excellent advice Sir. Coming from the electrical trade, gold mining, and oil and gas refining, I endorse these tips. I was successful, because I implored them. My mistake in the end was being too humble. Too kind. Usually these are good traits, but you can become a floormat to cruel, more experienced coworkers, if you hesitate to stand up for yourself. I was not assertive enough. This isn't a problem for most people, but hopefully this reaches the one person that may be struggling. I chose hard, tough trades to work in, and I may have been better suited to white collar careers. I'm not a brash person. Hindsight is 20/20. Many blessings to you.

I have always tried to do all these things throughout the time I did my my apprenticeship. I still do them even as a tradesman. The sad thing is bosses don't see to care anymore and nobody wants to pay well for a good worker. All they do is point out the negatives and aren't interested in raising wages or acknowledging a job well done.

There are many things to say about this. I remember one guy I worked with. In the first 2 years he was doing a lot to impress the boss and colleagues. They were in fact impressed by him. When he wanted to move to another department, and was just about to be moved he changed attitudes. One of the guys said about him, "He was just fake after all". My buddy was basically trying to please people to pave a way for himself. He was not led by his own values, but rather a pursuit of certain goals. That was in my mind a fail, although many might not notice it. What Wranglerstar is basically pointing out is; Value your job, show yourself as a trustworthy person, steward your time well, be mindful of how you spend your time, and be conscious about the work commitment/agreement. Now, something I learned a bit later was this. If you want to be an even greater asset to your company; learn and understand what it means to run a company. This will give you a much deeper insight into what matters, and give you a much more clear idea of how you should work. I would skip the running part. It creates stress, and does not build a healthy environment. A respectful boss values his workers enough to give them the dignity of walking. Trying to give a good impression, or rather to be mindful about how you represent yourself is a good thing. But instead of trying to perform before your boss, show yourself as one who is mindful about what he values, and seeks to build a good personal character. It is better to have a good character than to appear good.

Top ten ways to excel at your job. 1. Be cute 2. Be sexy 3. Walk like a stallion 4. Be able to talk to anyone. 5. Be the first one to show up in the morning, and the last one to leave. 6. Go out of your way to fix messes, even those that aren't your own. 7. Volunteer to stay late and work extra days. 8. Don't order other people around unless you are in charge. 9. Never be insubordinate. Always do what you are told. Be kind and gentle when dealing with your superiors. If they are concerned that you are there to take their job, then you are in trouble. 10. Make friends easily, and sweep confrontations under the rug like they aren't a big deal. Never, ever fist fight, no matter what happens. If you do these ten things throughout your life, you will find yourself making more money than 90% of everyone else, and that's a fact. If you are ugly or backwards, work on grooming yourself. Wear nicer clothes. Practice joke telling and work on conversating well. Never be the creepy, womanizer in the office. These types often find trouble for themselves that they have to spend a lifetime covering up. If you work hard but aren't rewarded, don't get bitter. Sometimes management will overlook you because they will think that you are just brown nosing. Don't let this deter you. Remember, the above ten rules are rules for life. Eventually those rules will reward you, even if many bosses overlook you. And it's not really about working up the ladder, but it's more about the fact that a dollar earned, because it was earned, will make you happier and wiser.

Safety on the job is most important to me, don't be over confident be humble but ambitious. Its easy to overlook Safety glasses, gloves, a ladder being set right a hand under the board when running a skill saw, not paying attention around heavy equipment etc and etc. If you get hurt you will be replaced like a tool and your family will feel the biggest blow. And not all bosses have best intentions for you or care about you so learn quickly where you sit because you should poor out you heart and effort but don't be taken advantage of. I've heard stories of some that couldn't be replaced just buried. Ofcourse with all the great advice Cody gave, but safety was the number one thing I learned on day one.

Do not worry about whether or not anyone else is pulling their weight. You do you and if someone else is lazy and making more work for you, just roll with it. Do not complain about it or let it bother you. This goes along with no gossiping or complaining or making excuses. Don't even complain to your buddy at work about the lazy guy. It doesn't bother you. Work through it.

Everything mentioned in the video is crucial, but something you mentioned that may get easily neglected is taking care of company tools. I watched a guy get fired on the spot for dropping a circular saw from saw horse height after he made a cut because he was in a hurry. I've taken Bosch hammer drills out of cases where the cord was pinched inside the case, and ive seen guys basically toss them after drilling a hole. Treat company tools as if they were your own. They are not cheap.

Boy am I glad I dont work for you. I've (briefly) had bosses like like you, and got out quick. The kind of boss that demands respect for their time (when on the clock) but doesnt respect our time (off the clock). Running on the job site? I think you meant urgency, or hustle, which would be good, but you clearly had a freudian slip there, and expect them to run at 100% all day. The fact that you would judge an employee for what they do on their own time (on the phone during their lunch) speaks volumes. Do you expect guys to wash their company van off the clock, or do you allow them time on the clock to do it? Same with the tools, do you expect them to be actively working until 5:55 and clock out at 6? Well then, you get tools put away dirty. Something tells me you were the boss being gossiped about haha. Probably still stings. Telling a green kid to be proactive and put away tools in anticipation is the fastest way to annoy their lead. Being proactive is great, but they should ask first. You definitely strike me as a tyrant boss, if this video is any indicator. You want fully dedicated slaves.

I was not in construction but it would still apply. I had a number of employees. I told them to think intuitively, learn to use critical thinking. A methodist repeats a method over and over. An intuitist learn to recognize a circumstance they have encountered before and come to a conclusion about how to move forward. Always learn from your experiences. A methodist repeats his steps every time he encounters the same problem. An intuitist learns from his steps and learns how to determine a next step quickly. Critical thinking is learning to use your mind as a storage tool. Store the things of value and set aside the nonsense. Cody all your reasons to me show CRITICAL thinking. Well done !

Great advice! Owning your mistakes is HUGE. Todays world has taught young folks nothing is ever their fault. I don't care if my guys mess up. I probably mess up more than they do. What I care about is owning it and doing what you can to fix it. If you can't, thats fine too if you find someone who can and learn for next time. I guess the caveat to that is dont let the same mistakes become habits as that also reflects poorly on you. Its an old bit of wisdom but I dont know anyone who hasnt learned more from their mistakes and failures than from their successes.
