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...
Dude stay in school. I never finished my degree and I regret it. Now Im going to go back to school at night/ online after work and my kids go to sleep.

I'm an ICU RN working weekend option nights, studying to be a nurse practitioner. I work every Fri, Sat Sun night and only get 4 weekends off a year.

During the week I work PRN at a maximum security prison providing free medical care to killers and rapists.

Some pretty neat jobs on here.

Some days I wish I wasn't in the office, but on site getting to play with the machines again.

I have been a mechanic almost my life. I had to retire from turning wrenches due to health issues a few years ago. Now I am an apartment maintenance man for a retirement complex. while I loved the work of wrenching I did work for a few places I hated. my current job I mostly like. It has its days too.

I work for Papa Johns. I deliver pizza's outta the XJ. I go through about 1/2 tank on a good night. :/

I love to drive and I love my Jeep... but this ain't the vehicle to do it in.

I make 30-40 on a good night, most of that goes to gas.

My other job is as an Intern Mechanic at a local shop here in town. I went to Nashville Auto Diesel but F'd around and didn't learn what I needed to. So, I'm back learning it again. I love what I do, and can fix anything that goes wrong on the jeep for just parts cost. And then I'll know how to do it in the future. :]

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 am a lifeguard at a high end country club. its a sweet gig, free food when i want it, 40 min on 40 min off, $20 per half hour swim lesson. it also can suck when you have to screw with the pumps or chems. i am also the head guard so i make the schedule every week, deal with complainants, ect. plus since i can fix anything(my jeep is a rolling tool box) i have to fix the pumps all the time. i love it though.

at school i work in the sports center in the back as a field manger on Sundays from noon to 4, so i sit around and watch football.

i also have an internship that pay me very well for the data analysis i do for the company.

I work on the management team of a mortgage servicing call center. I love my job...okay...my job kind of sucks, but it's the first place I've worked, i my life, that the leadership generally knows more then me. That's a comfort. I've also learned a lot about mortgages and that has helped me and family members in more ways then one.

i work at a gas station. im basically the assistant manager. i deal with crap from customers all the time but overall its ok. the thing that gets to me is that i work for a multi million dollar corporation and they start ppl out at .25 above min wage then after a year give you a $0.16 raise and make a big deal about it like they are going to go broke. i skipped a few steps so i get paid ok after only a year but not nearly enough for what i do..... i go above and beyond at my job and i get paid the same as others in my position at other stores who dont do anything but yea its an ok job. just gotta keep it up for a few more months till i graduate

My job sucks too. I work part-time for a party rental store. I deliver chairs, tables, tents, and the like, and keep up the warehouses and rental equipment, and maintenance on the delivery trucks. I make a pretty decent hourly rate for what the job is, but believe me, i have earned it. we run a small crew of about 2-4 guys depending on the need. for some reason, only morons are attracted to this place and i get stuck with some real lazy SOBs, so i end up doing most of the work anyways.

i think maybe the worst part, to me, is delivering and setting up all this crap for these super rich folks, and getting treated like garbage the whole time. i was asked to leave a customers house once by the butler bc my work shirt had a small hole it and a bleach stain.

Im 23, working on my bachelors degree in biology since my AS in comp. aided drafting/design didn't aid in finding a career. oh well. I like to work, and am grateful to have a job, but some decent coworkers would be nice. hopefully only a couple more years of this junk.

anyways, to all:
be grateful for your job, and take advantage of any opportunities for learning skills at your job(s). Work hard and be safe.

Oh and I love my job. Fortune 100 company and work from home if I am not travelling. Love it!

Get a degree in something you love, Mechanical Engineering, and do something you love to do, design munitions under government contract at Picatinny Arsenal in NJ.
