7. Elevator Installer and Repairer
This job is definitely for those who love physics…and a good workout. Elevator installers not only assemble elevators as the job title suggests. They also fix and maintain elevators, moving walkways and escalators. They usually have to carry equipment and parts necessary for repairment and, of course, know how to read blueprints, test equipment and have a complete grasp of the safety controls. If you’ve got problem solving skills, an inquisitive mind and don’t want to spend your workdays sitting behind a desk, then this is a job worth checking out. Average hourly pay is $37.81.
