    Default Jobs!

    What's your job - or what's the job you want to get? Be realistic.

    I've worked in stores since high school. My favorite was probably walmart because I sold guns on a daily basis. That was pretty nifty. Then I graduated, and wound up running the night shift at a pharmacy, which was horrible. So I quit. California wasn't working for me, so now I'm in Texas.

    I knew when I left NY that I wanted to be a cop. I would have signed up with SFPD, if their budget allowed it, but they're on a freeze. What initially drew me to Texas was - other than the state itself - Dallas PD is always looking for people. But the quite possible happened. I got to Amarillo and liked it here, and decided I don't want to move to the big city just yet.

    So I've got an application for the police here, and have to go check out the two local sheriff's offices [Amarillo is in two counties]. The city cops think I should have to live within 500 miles of here for five years, but they gave me an application anyway, even though I told them I was from NY.
    Hopefully, they'll overlook that and hire me. I'm qualified...have a degree...and all my records are spotless. I'm here, and want to stay here...

    Anyway, working nights in NY, I interacted with the police all the time, and after chatting them up on slow nights, I learned a great deal about their jobs. Sounded like something I'd like to do - not just killing people or beating them with nightsticks, but upholding the laws and protecting people. So I jumped, because there were no nearby opportunities in NY, and I hated that state anyway.

    What's your story?

    I've been playing a balancing act of retail and restaurant since graduating high school, and dabbled in security (7pm-7am shifts are... something else) briefly before finding those weekend night shifts messed me up for the whole week and affected my grades in school. Once I finish my 4-year degree here shortly, I'll most likely be heading into the police academy, and I hope to work somewhere local for the first few years before considering other related job opportunities; I love my home state, but I'd like to see other places too. If for some reason I don't do the academy thing, I'll most likely be enlisting, starting with 4 years and considering options from there.

    Now, I do have hobbies/passions I can turn into side jobs, but I'm not all that worried about those just yet. They'll still be hobbies/passions no matter the course of my professional life.

    I want to be a meteorologist. I'd get paid a lot to guess.
    On this day of days, most epic and prideful, you were born 15 whole American years ago!
    Through the odds and by doing the impossible, you beat out hundreds of thousands of siblings in the great sperm race for the coveted egg.
    Probably via hax.
    Regardless! You won!
    So remember, whenever someone picks on you or calls you weak or small.
    Just remind them that you beat out a few hundred thousand other wimps.

    And the grand prize was not dying!

    I'm only employed casually as a library technician but also doing librarianship studies at university as there are far more job opportunities in Australia for Librarian rather than technicians or assistants.

    From age 11-15 I helped my dad in landscaping. Nothing serious, I just helped them de-root and move trees, pull out weeds, mowing, etc. Since I wasn't officially on the payroll, my dad paid me out of his pocket. $100 a day. Pretty fricking sweet. Especially on the days I didn't have to do anything.

    When I turned 16, I worked at a 7-11. Got robbed 6 times in 7 months. Since I didn't want to get pistol-whipped I quickly left that place and worked at Barnes and Nobles, which is still my current job.

    My dream job... Accountant. Good with numbers.
    I now know what hell sounds like; I recommend a tactical nuclear strike on my position. Tell my family I love them.

    I held my first part-time job back in my sophomore year of high school. I was hired as the cashier for a crepe stand that was just starting up, but I ended up being the one who stands outside the booth and hands out samples to people. I did that for about a year, then quit.

    I then worked for a large part of my senior year as a sales floor employee at Target. I was really good with toys, but not so amazing with domestics. After I went to college I quit...

    ...to pick up a summer job. Japanese immersion camp counselor, two summers in a row! I'd make it three summers in a row, but I'm kind of stuck in Japan until August, so it'll have to wait until next year.

    I have a feeling I won't be working again until I graduate from college Spring 2010...

    My ideal job...hm. Definitely something involving America and Japan; if it involves creative work and/or anime/manga, even better. I feel that translation is a viable field for me, though I wouldn't mind creating original material as well. Of course, rarely does one ever get to simply walk into those kind of opportunities...so we'll see what happens

    I currently hold Rank and Position in the US Army.

    My dream job would be the Special Forces. At the moment do to low PT scores i just wouldnt cut it. Most SF guys can out run some cars. They do a standard 6 mile run everyday i believe.


    Back from Afghanistan (for a good 8-9 months now), and my first child is due in a few weeks, yet my heart is still beating at 120bpm plus. I love house, Hardstyle, Trance, and a few other sub genres. EDM for life.

    I don't really have a job.
    I just help my dad out at his restaurant for most Fridays.

    After college, I'd like to be an IT at Tokyopop or VizMedia. :3 Or something like that.

    I am jobless right now, cause of the recession and an over flow of polish workers in England.


    before I worked in a cash and carry up north before I split with my ex and moved back home.

    anyways the job I want is something easy, like a 7/11 type store or grocers or anything like that even working nights is ok for me what with my sleeping habits, I dont care about making a lot of money if you want something then save for it will feel that much better when you feel like you earned it,

    I'm currently enjoying the kind of lazy life that only the lukewarm academic environment of a private university in Japan would allow, and I leech on my parents for a living. My faculty is political science and economics.

    I'll probably move on to graduate school, but I'm wouldn't be optimistic about my prospects. I'll be extremely lucky if I can end up as a teacher at some irrelevant school or another.

    I used to work in the customer service department of a local bank. Now I'm looking for a job as a paralegal in one of the law firms round Sydney.

    And once I graduate, I intend to find work as a solicitor in one of said law firms.

    And then possibly moving on to become a barrister, again working for the same law firms.

    Fear my generic boringness.

    I used to work at a supermarket and a bakery. And I'm currently waitressing.

    I would love to be a translator. I would love it if I could make money off of translating manga or song lyrics.

    But what I want most is to marry the person I love, and be a housewife. =P If I could do translation work from home that would be even better. ^^

    Well I have several jobs I want to do and take note, I will accomplish all three of them =]

    First off, I will be an aid for the Peabody High School, helping others meet their educational goals and etc.

    Then I plan to help disabled children and pull them through life even though they are disabled.

    And then I want to fulfill my dream of being a writer, writing poetry/short stories/and regular sized novels.

    I'd like to be a mechanical engineer--I enjoy building things. I'd honestly like to design a new space-shuttle that will actually make it to Mars, and the moon.

    Or I'd build me my own nice car that's unique because no one else has one and stick to designing cars under Ford or Ferrari or something.

    Right now to pay for food and life I work at Gamestop. But am working on my comic to get published. I want to be a comic book artist. As well as opening my own restaurant after finishing culinary school.

    Wedding is in October. And I'm going to be a dad. Super excited.

    Writer, proofreader, and full-time mother *it's not work to some people, but you can't convince me of that some days*. I don't make a lot, but what with my roommate having the world's most erratic schedule, what I do make is good enough.

    I leech off society. I have not done a honest day's labor in my entire life. In my spare time, I troll in the local newspaper's debate section. It's so much more fun that way, since they aren't hardened and jaded like the interwebs are.

    About a month after a turned 16 my mother pushed me into getting a job. My first one sadly, was working at Burger King. I strictly prepared food and washed dishes. After being screwed over so many times while working there, I walked out six months later.

    An acquaintance of mine was working at McDonald's and got me a job there. I worked there for about seven months and was actually offered the position of Crew Leader (which is someone who usually trains new employees). However, after two fast food jobs, I was sick of that industry and I moved on.

    I held a telemarketing job for about two weeks. I couldn't take people cussing me out everyday. Not only that, but I hated bothering people in the first place. If I'd been selling something I actually knew stuff about, it might have been easier, but I was to sell insurance. It wasn't fun at all.

    After that I got a job at a gas station called Speedway. It was okay, except for that most of my co-workers were unfriendly. I worked the night shift, which meant I'd work alone most of the time. The problem with that was that I'd get drunks every night making a$$es out of themselves. I remember one time some drunk guy cussed me out because we didn't have hot dogs. I got sick of that quickly. I'd have probably stayed there longer than six months, but the store hours changed to where there was no night shift so my hours got cut severely.

    After that I worked at JcPenney's at the mall for a while. I hated it from the first day. I was to dress so unlike myself. I was to be so unlike myself. I was to straighten clothes most of the time, but when not straightening clothes I was to be at the register to ring up people. This wouldn't have been so bad if it hadn't been during Christmas time. People would buy about 20 - 30 items and the lines would quickly get long. I was put under so much pressure and the register wasn't similar to any I'd been on before. It was very confusing. I stayed until the holidays were over, and they actually offered me to be a regular worker (not just seasonal) but I declined.

    After that, I took a long break from working. I was sick of everything. It didn't seem like I'd like anything. I went probably about four months or so without working. My mom b*tched and went on and on about me being out of work even though it had never been my choice to get a job in the first place.

    After my long break from work, I got a job at a place called Old Time Pottery. If you've never heard of it, it's a place that sells lots of pottery (of course) and pretty much any kind of home decor stuff - from outside decorations to household stuff and linens. I got the funniest department of all! SEASONAL! This meant moving and redistributing merchandise every time a holiday or season passed. I'd begun working there at around May of that year. At first, we just had a lot of summer time stuff out. Patio sets, lawn ornaments, etc. The worst was cushions for lawn chairs and stuff. There were HUNDREDS of them. Making sure all colors and patterns were the same was a b*tch. Then at around the end of July, they actually started getting crazy with seasonal stuff. They had me putting out Halloween stuff! It's their store, they can have me put out whatever they want, but I just found it a little ridiculous to be setting stuff up for Halloween THREE MONTHS ahead of time. Then when it had gotten to August, I proceeded with Thanksgiving and Christmas stuff. That was three holidays at once. I was working 40 hours even though my status was part-time worker. I didn't mind more money, but having a part-time worker status doesn't look as good on a resume as full-time would've been. So even though I worked 40 hours for more than half of my time working there, I can never actually put full-time on resumes. The worst part of that whole job was moving the pottery. Because once summer was over, my job was to move ALL pottery away from the main display and move in all the holiday stuff. There are some big-a$$ pots out there, let me tell you. After moving all that pottery day after day, one's back gets f*cked up something good. After five months of working there, my life took a big change (for various reasons) and I moved to Tennessee.

    After less than a month of living in Tennessee, I got a job at Wal-Mart. The only reason I actually got a job so quickly was because before moving to TN, I'd applied online at many places around the area of TN I'd be living. At first, I worked in Electronics. It was great. I got to learn a lot about movies, cameras, TVs, MP3 players, etc. Some of my co-workers were pretty cool too. I worked in Electronics for about a month before this really b*tchy thing happened though. It was getting close to the holidays working there during late October. They needed more front cashiers (for the front of the store). Since I was one of the newest people to be hired (amongst others in different departments), I was pulled out of Electronics and forced to work up front. This was screwing me over big time. I was hired for Electronics, not the front. Not only that, but my pay would decrease moving to the front. I had no choice though. I'd moved out of my mother's place and had to provide some sort of income to help with bills. I remained at Wal-Mart for about six months or so. I left because of a few reasons: 1) they screwed me over in the first place. 2) it was a half hour drive to that particular Wal-Mart and gas prices were going crazy. 3) I was on status as part-time worker and once again (like it had happened before) I was working full-time hours. The thing is though, at that Wal-Mart (don't know if it's like that at all of them) you got paid more to be a full-time worker. So they were screwing me AGAIN.

    Luckily, planning my escape from Wal-Mart well, I had another job lined up two weeks after I quit. I worked at Family Dollar (a place for poor people to job, basically). The best part was that it was located about five minutes away from my apartment so it didn't eat up much gas to go there and I didn't have to get ready for work super early. It was a pretty decent job. Actually, I had less problems with this job than any other I'd had up to that point. Most of my co-workers were super friendly and easy to get along with. My boss, for once, was super nice and understanding. There were cons to the pros though. 1) I had to unload a truck once a week. That was a b*tch. I had to haul very heavy boxes (usually full of detergent or oil or something else that's heavy in large quantity) off a truck and QUICKLY distribute them to the proper section of the store. Then repeat the process for about two or more hours (depending on how much was on the truck) then you got to the fun part of opening up all those boxes and stocking shelves. To be honest though, I enjoyed stocking more than being on register ... which comes to another small issue. 2) Being on the register was pretty easy, but it was the people that came into the store that bugged me. I can tell you, redneck idiots that came in there were dumber than a box of rocks to say the least. Many of them seemed not to enjoy showering or bathing in any way because I'd get a wave of body odor through out the day from different people. 3) Out of all the good, nice co-workers there just had to be a rotten egg. She was a very lazy, unpleasant girl to work with. She'd rarely show up for work and always use her daughter as an excuse. Then when people would get assigned more hours than her, she'd b*tch about it. She was just awful. The only reason the manager couldn't fire her is because once she actually did try to fire her and this particular girl threatened to accuse my manager of being racist. >.< Soooo ridiculous. I worked happily there for about five months, or maybe it was six. Anyway, that's when I started classes at East Tennessee State University. Financial aid supports us pretty well. :-D

    Even though we got a pretty good amount of financial aid, I got a small job on campus to ensure that we'd always have some sort of income. I currently work at a computer lab. It's the simplest job I've EVER had. I simply help people with computer problems and sort out papers that people print off. Easy, easy, easy money. I like all of my co-workers. All of them are super easy to get along with and all of the managers treat you like you're an equal. It's awesome!

    Nah, they all were pretty cool. Barely any yelling and they didn't wave the gun around. After the 4th time, I just got on the floor and stopped moving til they left. About 5 were caught.
    I now know what hell sounds like; I recommend a tactical nuclear strike on my position. Tell my family I love them.
