I know some who is doing this job. It takes about 2 hours to recover corneas, and you get paid 150. When you get good, you get faster, so it becomes more like 1.5 hours and very very routine. Wicked easy money. If you are in the boondocks, your jobs won’t be as frequent; if you are near a city, you’ll have tons of work and be busy and relatively wage-rich. Safer than climbing towers, so long as you don’t mind doing minor, routine surgery on fresh corpses.
They train you, as long as you pass their interview. My source had no medical experience whatsoever and they trained her and now she’s doing it. She spent a week in a city during training and got a check for 1100 bucks. And she was still in training, she did 6 jobs, and got 1100 dollars. When you’re an experienced pro just slamming them out, you could do 20 jobs a week (about 40 hours) and be making 4000 bucks a week. Yes, you read that correctly. That’s 200k a year. A fraction of that is still damned good money.
