I'm a factory worker I bounce around from job to job (when somebody is out sick) get paid no better than the lady that vaccines out the boxes and stands in one place all night. But I build coffins not a typical job but it pays the bills

I'm retired and do as I please. More than once after washing my Jeep Commander I've found myself driving over the bridge into Destin, Florida 14 hours later. We live in a beautiful country and I intend to see all I can before I take the big dirt nap. I was in the same profession for 35 years. Every job no matter how exciting in the beginning starts to suck after a few years. I'm been retired since 2005 and so far have not seen any downside of sleeping in and not answering to anyone but myself.
I'm glad you all have jobs. I was fortunate to have never been unemployed in my lifetime.

I'm a Registered Nurse in the preop area at a Level 1 trauma center nearby. I also work part time as an EMT for EMS with the same company. I really like most parts of my jobs. I enjoy meeting people, and helping them understand their surgical procedures, and getting them ready.

When I'm on the ambulance, it can go from boring to terrifying in an instant, but it's good for a break from the hospital!

I work 10 hours a day, 4 days a week, and then on the ambulance on weekends.

After a long stint of not being able to find a job, my uncle finally has the ability to hire me onto his job. He's a landscaping/construction contractor.

I gotta say, when I first got slammed into the construction field (navy) I was pissed. Then after I went to my "A" school I started thinking "man, this ain't half bad". Then after doing some real construction work I realized how fun it is, it's like living out every kids dream of playing with giant tonka toys. You get to play with some cool toys, it's hard and rewarding work, and when you're done... you realize how far you've come. Going from a jagged piece of land to having an entire house/facility built and being able to say you built that massive structure is something you can take home with pride.

It's a trade that will always be around, even after the zombie apocalypse. And you're contributing to society in a big way.

It's also fun tearing down **** that you're gonna rebuild... smashing things with a dozer is awesome.

I'm a manager at a music store. We sell guitars, basses, keyboards, drums, and most other instruments and accessories. Live sound equipment, also. Love being around music and other musicians all day, but I deal with my fair share of rude customers/just plain idiots. The only thing that really sucks about my job is that I have to work every Saturday. We're closed Sundays and I get a day off during the week, but not being able to have a real weekend is killing me! Other than that, I really love it!

I do occasional part time work as an EMT, and more occasional part time work testing fire hose.

Internal auditor for an insurance company. I review total loss and salvage automobile claims to ensure they were handled properly.

With an earthquake and now tornadoes on the ground less than 40 hours later, it's a pretty secure job in Oklahoma That, and it's pretty good for a gear head who wants a desk job!

i'm a cook at a wing place/sports bar and i have to deal with all the same crap. worst of all is the girls who are complete idiots or *****es and were only hired because of their looks.

luckily i graduate next semester, and i've been applying for local and federal law enforcement jobs all over the country

I'm a service tech for the banking industry. I'm the guy who fixes the tube systems in the drive thru, and the alarm/cctv systems, and the locks (keyed and combo), and the night drop, atm's, and....oh I could go on and on all day. My jobs has sucked since all these banks got stupid after the market crashed.

I'm an RN on a Tele/Oncology floor. We can go from having great amazing patients, to oh what the hell do I have to give them to sleep through the night. I love what I do, but am moving to ICU here shortly hopefully.
