any wagecucks on here actually enjoy their jobs?
I just recently got hired as a trainee train conductor for southern rail in the UK and its going pretty well. I always liked trains so I thought id give it a go. I also found a gf recently so im double happy since I have choo choos and gf at the same time.
I help people stay out of prison and make a livable amount of money from the job, so I'm happy.
I get paid to cook food for others. Despite being a robot and a social failure I enjoy making people happy. I'm on the road to owning my own restaurant before 25, honestly I'm excited to see how these years turn out.
I do overnight support/systems monitoring for a US based tech company (Ausfag).
It's betty good, get to work from home and watch movies/animu/play single player vidya most of the time, unless something fucks up, then need to fix it or log a support request with the vendor or wake some poor american guy up and get them to fix it remotely
12 hour days, 4 days on 4 days off. Good money, easy work, don't need to get dressed or leave the house.
Dad hooked me up due to an old mate of his being IT manager here. But I have my CCNA, MCSA, ITIL and ~3 years helpdesk, ~5 years sysadmin exp.
Pay is excellent, ~$45 an hour plus super.
I absolutely hate my job.
I'm an accountant for a large company and it's the most normie job I've ever had. I thought accounting was supposed to be more of a reserved job, but boy was I wrong. Every day I deal with literally dozens upon dozens of normies and am under short time allowances to produce quality work. It's very stressful and I'm quitting soon.
I just want to say that I would trade everything to go back to the UK, I would be a Train driver or even McDonalds employee.
You guys have no idea what living in the 3rd world is, I had the chance to live in London for 1 year, I am permanently damaged and can't be happy in this shithole, again you guys don't know how good you have it.
I'm a shift supervisor at an ice cream shop. $9 per hour, plus $3-$5 per hour in tips
It's honestly fun as shit because it's not that hard and I'm only working part time while I'm in college. The owner is super chill and basically let's the supervisors make their own decisions in how they run things, so it's pretty much like I'm my own boss, and customers aren't as shitty as they are in other food places because it's, well, ice cream, and there's always a ton of kids around.
CCNA fucking sucked. Shits so hard, took me 3 attempts. Need a lab set up with a few different switches/routers etc.
ITIL is easy as fuck.
MCSA is three different exams, the first 2 were easy (installing and admin win server) but the third one (config advanced services) required quite a bit of working knowledge.
If you want to get involved with IT, ITIL and CompTIA A+ should get you in the door for helpdesk jobs.
do you get drug tested OP? how hard was it to get the job?
I ask because if I find it feasible, I might actually move back to the UK just to get such a job
