I used to work at Aetos…first day of work was at Woodlands and got activated to do 8-hour duty after finishing “orientation lesson”.
After that continued for 16 hours, person who is taking over didn’t come till later – ended up doing 20-hours shift.
During my 1 year of working there, I clocked about 320 hours a month till I injured both my knees due to over exertion.
I ended up spending my salary to recover by physio, left the job after I recovered. The highest I earned was $3.2k including CPF – was it worth it?
Yes till the point that I injured myself but if I look at the bigger picture, this kind of hard labour is not worth the money. Even bangala construction worker get more rest, I had to endure countless hours checking cars, breathing in fumes and enduring 37c heats during the mid day.
Many think we aux police nothing to do but all I can say is please go and work there since you think it’s an easy job…even a fit commando couldn’t take the work and gave up.
