Modern agriculture is not only shovels and hoes, but also innovative equipment that requires knowledge and certain skills. And while today's youth choose professions that are in demand in big cities, a young tractor-mechanic operator Maxim Kirdyashev has been working at Astrakhan Agrocomplex Enotaevka LLC for more than six years. He finds a special romance in his profession. This is reported by the regional newspaper "Enotaevsky Vestnik" and the Astrakhan news portal.
He chose his profession consciously. After graduating from nine classes of a secondary school in the village of Enotaevka, Maxim entered the branch of the Astrakhan State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering as an auto mechanic.
“I was born in the village, since childhood I have been fiddling with equipment: I have always collected, changed, repaired something,” Maxim notes.
The basic rules that he adheres to in his work are to be attentive and responsible. The Internet makes it possible to engage in self-education, to study the nuances of managing new modern technology. Maksim says that many people view work on the land as difficult and low-paid. But, according to him, this is far from the case: the work is interesting, socially significant, the salary is high and stable.
“The work is difficult, but very interesting. And today, being a tractor driver means being an innovator, and agriculture is an area in which it’s really great to work. Once every six months, the whole team is given a bonus, ”says a young machine operator.
In the summer, during the season, the life of a tractor driver becomes tense, without days off and holidays, but then there is time to rest.
“Today, tractor drivers driving heavy equipment inspire respect. But not everyone wants to poke around in pieces of iron and repair agricultural machinery. And without desire, nothing will come of it. This work must be loved. A machine operator is an interesting profession, it is even creative to some extent, and I also find romance in it,” Maxim Kirdyashev assures.
