Individuals are constantly searching for fresh employment prospects that provide improved compensation and working circumstances. Nevertheless, certain job opportunities exist that may not immediately be considered in relation to higher-paying roles. Someone recently asked the question: “What jobs pay surprisingly high that no one knows about?” Here are the top 18 answers.
Panda Express General Manager
“We had a meeting recently and 90 percent of us make over 90k a year, while 50 percent make over 100k. The top earner was 225k, and I made 125k last year.”
Medical Waste Disposal
“This one actually is surprisingly true. My dad runs his own medical waste business and only does it once or twice a week and makes about 15k-20k a year from it. His main clients are permanent makeup artists and tattoo shops (which don’t generate a ton of waste), but the few doctors office’s he picks up from always have waste, so he’s always making money. If he were to do it full time and expand, he’d likely be making 50k a year with a low-stress job (unless you count all the driving).”
Heavy Equipment Mechanic
“I was literally offered a job a month ago where I was told “with overtime our guys are breaking $200k a year” to move to Texas.”
Crime Scene Cleaning in The US
“Good money. I respect all crime scene cleaners because they have to look at some pretty nasty stuff.”
Cooking for Resource Camps
“I cook for resource camps (tree planting, firefighting, have done the odd oil rig or scientific expedition in the past) and I get paid an amazing day rate.”
“They make big money I hear.”
Residential Backflows and Fire Prevention Systems
“Annual testing, county mandated. Recession proof. Cash cow.”
USPS Sorting Facility
“Been here for about 3 years and I make $25/hr, 40 hours a week to type zip codes and put mail in sacks. We’re also unionized, can wear pretty much whatever we want, and can listen to music while we work. By far the easiest job i’ve ever had.”
Unionized Elevator Operators in NYC
“Where I live elevator guys start at 50 an hour and quickly go up to 80 just due to sticking around. The issue is the union doesn’t allow many people in hence the high wages.”
“Accountant here, A lot of my self-employed HVAC experienced clients gross about 132k euro a year, which is about 146k USD a year. Good money alright.”
Public Relations, Specializing in Crisis Management
“If you need me, you REALLY need me. But most of the time you don’t need me at all. So I make six figures a year doing nothing at all most days. Just rushing in to save the day maybe a couple of times a year at most.”
Legacy Code Archaeologist
“Guy I know in high school taught himself some obscure programming language for a job posting he saw. He was the first person I know who was able to buy a house on his own.”
Underwriters for Mortgages in The US
“Easy six figures.”
Merchant Marine Officer
“Bank money, no expenses, half the year vacation. I travel for work to crazy places. It’s hard on family and relationships.”
“People never think of them unless they’re specifically buying a house, but they make anywhere from $400-1000 for an inspection that usually takes three to six hours.”
“A lot of people don’t even think about the need for them, but they’re really important and have a dangerous job, so they get paid pretty well.”
“Hairdresser checking in. Self-employed. Can confirm this. I make well over 6 figures, and I only work 30 hrs/week.”
“I am a specialized ultrasound technician making 120k a year. I only have an associate’s degree.”
