I ****ing hate school. With a passion. I'm constantly thinking of what it would be like to just have a job.
When I had my summer job I worked for my uncle. It varied from mowing yards, bush hogging pastures, to laying brick and cutting trees. There were days I hated it but for the most part I loved it. I was doing what I loved, out in the country.
I wish I had an actual job...
Any entrepreneur's here? Me and a couple buddies are trying to open a t-shirt business then expand to more clothing/accessories. I may just start another thread on this...
I do tech support for an ISP in the commercial/small business department. Job sucks but the pay is pretty good and the company has good benefits. I'm currently looking into oilfield jobs just due to the fact that I hate sitting behind a desk 8-5.
I'm a new construction framer. Part/full time lol. Work a couple weeks get laid off a couple weeks. The worst part is we use to have two crews, and like 12 guys. Now it's one crew and 2 1/2 guys. Its one other guy besides myself, and my boss that works like 4hours a day cause he has another job ( bad sign right lol). The other bad part is trying to find other people nobody wants to work anymore, I couldn't tell you how many people worked a day or two then quit.

I really like my job. I detail cars at a local used car dealership. Its really fun because I love working around cars and for some reason I just like cleaning....don't know why. Plus, since I'm a student I can't work very much so it doesn't get too boring and extra cash is always great.
I am in school as well and my job blows. I do pest control and it's not the bugs that bother me it's the trashy people I deal with in apartments. The pay is great for today's economy and thats the only reason I stay. I was doing valet on the strip and it was the funnest best paying job I've had so far. Wish the economy would bounce back and I could start the money flowing again.
Plus I make more than most people with college degrees.
That's pretty easy to do now a days. College degrees are worth nothing now a days. Articles all the time on the news and in papers about this. Fricken Waste Management garbage collectors make more than some BS or BA degree people. The golden years are long gone.
Oh and I love my job. Fortune 100 company and work from home if I am not travelling. Love it!
I work for a major engineering company on the project management/ project controls side.
I basically coordinate with all the disciplines, the client and the PMT to make changes to the scope of work. The bad side is that I can't talk about my work with friends since most of my work is confidential.
To make a long story short, I've been working an A to B job in a retail environment for the last two years. It's not where I want to be, and I make about 1/3rd of what I made at my last good job, but I'm thankful to have a job--period. I have IT experience, help desk/tech support, collections, new vehicle sales, healthcare, banking/finance, and insurance background. I've done this and that, trying to find my place in the world more or less, and I've lost a few really great jobs sadly as a result of a woman. That's a whole different story, but I'm sure I'm not the only one.
Anyway, stuck doing retail because it's all I can do at the moment. I've been doing a little bit of freelance web design and graphic design to help get me by, but that's pretty slow. Lots of fresh out of college kids want to build their portfolio up and work for free to do so, so why would anyone want to pay?
