How much do crane operators start off at? Is it a good job? Do you have to go to school?

My friend told me he makes 6 figures, as a crane operator, and hes only 26 been doin it for 3 yrs. Is that true? Is it hard to get in?

    Not sure about the schooling part, but my father in law is (was-retired) a heavy equipment operator and when he did work, he made a well living however it wasn’t 6 figures, but he was laid off a lot. And a lot of construction jobs like that you have to move around a lot. I would just ask your friend how he got started and also ask him for proof of this 6 figures b/c I find that a little unbelievable. Good luck :)
