Your (current or future) Career/Job


Anonymous~

Recommended Posts

Wal-Mart sucks as place to work and probably always will. Even if you work nights like me. There is one piece of good news, though. There was this one guy who pretty much everyone thought was a jerk, a loudmouth and a pathological liar. Well, he was fired yesterday after a few months on the job. Officially the reason was he was going around bragging about getting a job with a competitor (who will likely fire him just as quick), but there were also rumors that he was going into the computer system and altering his hours to steal money from the company. Wouldn't be surprised. So overall, good riddance.

 

Now I just have to deal with the several other co-workers who also drive me nuts. ;)

I am currently a dairy clerk at a grocery store, and recently despite my objections was made a backup checker/cashier. In other words I have to work twice as hard to get half the work done, oh goody gumdrops with sprinkles on top. I swear yesterday when I was up there my assistant manager asked me if the milk load was here yet and I said "yeah and I barely even got touch it before I was called up here" and he said "is the truck driver still here?" The inner smart ass in me was dying to say "yeah his corpse is in the cooler I think he died of old age while waiting for me to get back there."

 

For this and many other reasons I am not at liberty to discuss because a certain incident that almost cost me my job I am on hard core burnout and am trying to hold onto my last grip on sanity before I can implement my exit strategy and move onto what I really want to do in life. The good news is I am well respected and on good terms with most of my fellow coworkers and with management but have a made a lot of enemies since that incident and hate my company more than I have ever hated anyone in my entire life.

 

My exit strategy has multiple steps some simple ones like getting my drivers license and some more long term ones most notably my goal to becoming a professional author. As an individual with a mild case of Autism called Aspergers I have done some public speaking on the matter and my speeches are fairly popular one such speech had me inundated with hundreds of e-mails from parents with all sorts of questions. I needed a bit of help from my mother to answer some of them but I answered all of them. So my first few books are going to be mostly about that with the very first one being a self help book and the next couple ones after that being my autobiography and if I am successfuly I will eventually branch out into other subjects and maybe write some fiction. I have been very busy during the election season making political videos so I haven't accomplished much on that front but I will kick it into high gear soon. Believe me folks I want out of there more badly than I have wanted anything for as long as I can remember.

I get up at 2:00am, to drive to work. I start work at 5:00am, I work from 5 to 3:30pm now that's 10hours of work, 5days a week, I get about umm 4hours of sleep each day. Now what do I do at my job! Well I plant food now I know your thinking oh that's not bad. well when its a 100-102 out side, and you get sand storms hitting you every ah 5mins getting dust and dirt in your eyes, then having to be bent over for 10hours putting in plants, seeds and all kind of stuff in the ground its not so easy. Top of all that I get 64.19 each day. I make $310 a week. why do I do all this? Cause at the end of the day I know I'm feeding a lot of ponies cause of my hard work and I can buy MLP stuff :D. So the next time you are going to eat a salad or maybe even a pepper YOUR WELCOME :) lol. So now I want to know about your job! what do you do, how much do you make? do you love it or hate it? and what drives you to keep doing it!

I'm a student but I work with my father, I'm on a contract so it's the same as if I was learning to become a housebuilder. I do not plan on becoming a housebuilder in the future, but I decided to add it. I'm actually planning on becoming a lawyer.. So I can buy a BMW M6 2006.

 

So it's basically similar to your work hours, wake up around 6:45 am or 7:00 depending on where the next job is, so we drive for maybe an hour. Often I work until 6:00 pm then drive home, although most of the time it's until 7:00 pm. But I once had a week were I woke up 6:00 am, did not drive I was sleeping at a house there then worked until 12:00 am. That's 18 hours, I usually only work for maybe 12 + hours. It's 5 days a week too.

 

The income is very good, especially considering my age. So I love it for that, but then I kind of hate it since often the weather is terrible and the work hours are usually longer then 12 hours and it's often that you are working in conditions were you get all wet and dirty and you can't change clothes until you arrive home. It's also a lot of weightlifting, I can't really whine about that. I'm lifting a lot more weight then I would be doing sitting at home and lifting. Like 80+ kg windows, that's 177 lbs.. It was crazy and there were many windows. It was a two story house, but it all worked out and in the end of the day you see what you have created. Be it a window, a little shed or a roof. It makes it worth it, especially the pay.. wink.png

 

What keeps me going, is the sweet money and knowing that the money is for cars.. I love cars thus I love money. smile.png

I'm still at uni, but I really feel like I should get a job but don't have the confidence to apply for some reason :x!

 

But I will probably get one in the next year, or an intern ship so I can get cash in the summer :D!

Im the Project Manager and half owner of a growing IT company me and my partner started a couple of years ago. I normally work 12 hours a day, wake up at 8:20 have a nice breakfast and walk 14 minutes to get to office at 9:30 and work till 21:00 or 22:00. 

 

We have build a development team that has fun as we work, listen to all kinds of music everyday and share experiences with both work and out of office ordeals. I really enjoy my work, even when it consumes much of my time I get some opportunities to read forums and talk with people from all over the world. Sometimes when due dates approach things get stressful but we always manage to deliver.

 

I like my job, A LOT, it has gave me a lot of great experiences and chances,  Im constantly learning and growing with it, sometimes it feels like a little baby we are taking care of, Lol here our logo =D

I'm a high school student, so no 'job' yet. I do a weekly paper round, though.

 

As for what I want to do in the future, here's what I have in mind:

 

 

What, you expected some kind of awesome future story, didn't you? I have no dang idea of what I want to do when I'm older.

Until yesterday I was an intern as a web developer. I brought in about $1600 a month. Now I'm jobless but I do now have my position on the Poniverse staff as the Python/Django guy.

I've been at my job for almost 3 years and it has it's days when I'm like meh but I enjoy my job and it's better than not have a job. :) Making money and the fact that it's a job is what keeps me going.

I'm a student right now, but I have a pretty sweet summer gig lined up. I go work in my neighbor's tree farm whenever I want for however long I want, and he pays roughly $20 an hour.

He's a doctor. He's rich. wub.png

"We all have jobs".

Except me sad.png

Sad feels were had this day. Many sad feels.

 

I get around though, doing odd jobs and things like that.

I've got a variety of degrees and diplomas that I've accumulated over the years, all of which just served to get me jobs. They had no real purpose after that, as whatever they taught in university and college was superseded by work experience almost immediately. Reality and Academia have pretty much nothing to do with each other.

 

I work as a database administrator, developer, and process analyst for the Evil Empire, working on internal tools. I've got nothing to do with the products they sell, so don't blame me for those. I manage a small team of six people there, who are the 'whatever needs doing' team that deals with emergencies and stuff that nobody else is willing to handle.

 

I'm a partner in a small business that does web design, and another that sells crafting supplies like handspun yarn, handcrafted buttons, and whatnot. And I run a small sheep farm & horse stable with what time I have left.

I work at Wal-Mart, I don't hate the job, just the management team we currently have at our store. Im currently making 10.45 an hour as a Freezer/Dairy Third shift stocker. I usually get 32-40 hours a week, so I bring home on average 550-600 dollars every 2 weeks.  I get up at 9pm and go in to work at 10pm until 7am then go to bed at around 12pm-1pm.Its not a awesome high paying job but it pays my bills and lets me buy myself something nice from time to time.

I work the late shift at Wendy's, from 5 PM to 1 AM.  We close around 1:30, which means I get home at 2 and am in bed around 4 or so.  Frankly, I'm looking to get out of this job ASAP.

I'm a college grad and am now working designing air conditioning systems, and calculating energy losses in a building. I get up at 5:30 am, get ready, and am off at 6:00 am. Its a 50 minute commute from my house to my job. 7am-3:30pm are my hours which isn't bad, its just the battle getting up at 5:30am. Its almost like getting up for college again, minus having to come home to do homework. Hoping to buy my 3rd car by the end of the summer.

I'm currently an IT intern at a fairly large insurance company.  I'm supposed to be doing stuff with organizing their databases, but they have yet to get the program on my computer so that I can do that, so instead, I'm working on updating a list of their web services.  It's not bad, and it's fairly close to my home, and it pays exceptionally well for a summer internship, so there's no complaints here.  Well, maybe not no complaints, but I shouldn't complain, and that's what matters.

Oh, my summer job is awesome. 

 

While I'm home from college, I'm working as a summer camp instructor at the US National Whitewater Center in Charlotte. In short, my job is to shepherd little kids over waterfalls and make sure they don't drown while doing so. It's awesome, but it's extremely tiring and I get a funky tan from wearing a PFD all day. Also, sunburn. But I'm not complaining. I love my first job. Heck, I even get to brag that my boss competed in the Beijing Olympics back in '08. Yep, that's the kind of skill I get to work alongside on a daily basis.  And I love every minute of it.
