People would yell at me on occasion but that was pretty easy to avoid by choosing which areas were least likely to have people returning to their cars at a particular time of day.
The weirdest rant I had someone give me wasn't even about the parking situation. I get called over to see about one of the ticket machines not printing tickets after a guy tried to pay. Get there. He doesn't wanna talk about the pay machine at all. He was much more pissed that my dispatcher used the security cameras to locate him and identify which machine was broken. This then triggered a lengthy speech from him about fascism and invasion of privacy and government conspiracy.
>>26181205 I got medicaly retired from military so I got out early, VA pays 3250 a month tax free do to not being able to work anymore, also I started working at 13 and saved my ass off so at 30 when I got out I paid for my house in full, no house payment or car bills.. SSDI income is coming soon for me
Indeedy, that was back in the 90's for me, one really got to see allsorts of customers tho. Once I fucked up too, they sold CD's too, all cases were out in the store and then the discs were in racks under the counter and in the basement, some guys wanted to buy a record, I lifted up the rack under the counter to check for it, but had to go down to the basement and check the racks there, but I forgot to lift down the rack from the counter so when I was back up they had bolted with the whole rack, didn't get fired but boss wasn't happy.
>>26181159 >>unloading ships How did this work? You got to operate cranes?
>>26181275 Oh shit I would have been stressed, fid you ever have to rewind VHS tapes? Or by then was it all DVD, I tried my ass off to work at Block Buster but never any openings had to settle for taco bell
seriously though, im 19 and graduating soon, i want to move away but how do you even move out of state and find a job and a place to live? do you apply over the internet first? and any ideas on what job to get if i have no college degree? ive worked at a gas station before
It was VHS, we had a VCR for rewinding them but weirdly enough I don't think I ever found a single cassette that wasn't rewinded upon return. It was a pretty nice job back in those days, haven't seen a videostore around in many years here nowadays though. Are there any Blockbuster stores left in the US?
>>26181422 i dont have a police record but ive done stupid things earlier on (pissed in lysol, shit on floor of bathroom at school, was always joking around and being perverted) and i to be honest i really regret that stuff and some people know about it, could that stuff land me in trouble down the line if its been like 3 years ago?
>>26181458 I've never worked at a pizza place how clean is it? I can tell you taco bell is by the far the safest and cleanest IMX, all food comes in bags and you just warm it up, burgerking depends on location, KFC was filthy, everyone cross contaminated food raw fhicken blood fingers on cooked chicken..
>>26181522 Nope not at all, I knew many people who joined at 25, if not married you will be in the dorms with younger ppl but its not bad, good thing is you are older and can focus on career and wont do dumb 19yo or 21 yo shit that would get you in trouble, if you did 20 years to retire yiud be 45, or just do 4 and use your GI bill for college
>>26181275 No, the cranes are for licensed operators only. A crew of about 10 men unloads some 2000 tons by hand. We stack the boxes on top of some tree platforms and the crane operator puts in on land. It's extremely dangerous as it's not uncommon for the crane to drop 500 kilo loads on people's heads. Also, the storage rooms in the ships are usually -40 degrees Celsius or lower. It used to pay well, but not anymore. Not exactly a desirable job.
There were some regulars, some of them had probably seen everything in the store, dropped in to grab whatever was new for the week. Certain films attracted certain types of people tho, Don Juan de Marco drew lots of younger females etc, the ones renting the pornos were a breed of their own too I'd say.
>>26181524 >No, not that big of a deal senpai just kid shit, look into if you want to move and a change of pace
much thanks and if im there will i still be able to talk to my family much? to be honest i love them but they are into some real oddball religious stuff (ufos, etc) and are really conservative and strict and id like to space myself from that without having them think i cut them off
>>26181557 I already went to college. I have a bachelors degree. I just hate my field and the choices it offers in the civilian world. Could I leverage it to get a better and comfier position in the military?
>>26181599 I wouldnt count on talking to them much at all in bootcamp, after though and yiu are done with your job school for training its fairly a normal job, if you are not in a combat MOS or AFSC its pretty chill, and yes you would be able to talk to them on deployments
Manual labor jobs mostly. I actually prefer them cause I get payed to stay fit. >warehouse worker x2 >factory worker >cart pusher (way harder then it sounds especially at the huge walmart I worked at) >house cleaner for rental properties >lawn care I now work at a kitchen in a grocery store. By far the easiest job I've ever had...also a very fattening job.
>>26181717 You should its a good life XP, if you do go stay away from combat jobs including being a cop unless you really want to do it, get trained for something you can use on the outside, good luck senpai
Aye, I typed in architect because I couldn't think of a title. I was more of an assistant tho. What I did was to draw plumbing and waterlines into projects, mostly apartment buildings, I also redrew a lot of old handdrawn drawings into CAD.
>>26181947 Basically packaging flowers. The usual work is that i unload like couple hundreds of flower boxes (usually roses), then unpack those boxes into bouquets . You put those bouquets on to line and some machinery cuts rose stems, then you pick those cut bouquets, put them into buckets (usually contains 6-10 of them) and put into the trolley (20-30) buckets. Throughout shift you usually done about 60-70 trolleys.
>working in a warehouse packing and shipping phones/accessories for AT&T online customers $8/hr was nice because everyone was vietnamese and didn't talk (at least to me), though i hate the vietnamese language now >Great wolf lodge (indoor waterpark/hotel) lifeguard $7.85/hr the chlorine concentration in the air gave me respiratory issues and a constant cough, also gave me back pains that still persist >University: Moving and setting up chairs and tables for events on campus $8.50/hr more back pain, not bad otherwise >University: Work for a FabLab $10/hr, play GTAV and jack around for 5-8 hours a a time, am a supervisor so I can make other employees do things I don't want to super comfy job.
I want to angle for a university job after I graduate, any anons with advice?
Aye, it was very comfortable, I worked with 2 elderly very nice gentlemen, I made one mistake though. First day I got there they asked me if I liked coffee (I hated coffee), I said yes because I wanted to fit in. These guys guzzled down several large mugs of coffee every day though, and as soon as they had some for themselves they filled up my mug too. It was just a temp job for a few months to ease a busy period, but by the end of it hands were in parkinson-mode and stomach was in no good shape, kek. It's definitely a job I could imagine too though. There's a documentary on a japanese architect named Tadao Ando out there somewhere, I recall it was a very comfy watch if you've got time to spare.
>>26181999 Pretty shitty. Very boring and they always made me go on my break as soon as I got in so they could make me work the whole shift without a break in the middle. Managers were rude, they didn't show me how to do anything there, always burn my hands on the fryer, paid me less than they said they would etc. I suppose it's better than being a manual scavenger though or some shit.
>blockbuster video I was the only guy who showed up to work consistently. Co-workers stoned or fucking around the whole time
>public library fapped in bathroom. barely got anything done. nobody there worked hard at all. government employment = easy mode
>college desk job brought external HD with standalone web browser. Watch 8 hours of TV per shift. Barely worked. Talked to QTs at the desk
>Office job 1 Lasted 1.5 years - alcoholic. Only had to do 8 hour shifts and I kicked ass even though I wasn't sleeping and was hung over all the time.
Saved up $20k and quit working for a year
> Office job 2 Terrible, dying company. Pure frustration and failure. Quit within 3 months
> Office job 3 Mega asshole for a boss. Lasted 8 months and quit. Everyone quit. For years. He finally got fired this year. I am very happy. So did his asshole overlord boss.
> Temp job, government sector more people not working at all. Office politics. It was actually fun. At the bottom you just have to ride the waves and accept your role as a pawn to be used between bickering, 40-something year olds who are trying to climb the ladder in an office where no actual work is completed.
Surfed the internet for 7 out of 8 hours a day. But the commute was terrible. 3 hours in bad traffic a day. I quit that too.
>house husband No sleep. Babies all day. It's the best job I've ever had though
>Freelance illustrator Best job I've ever had. >Shopkeeper Pretty good. Got to draw all day. Cuntomers don't really take the wind out of my sails. >Lab assistant making dentures Nice pay, good prospects, terrible managerial team. >Warehouse containers Yuck.
>>age 15 - assisting on a construction site, >>age 18 - few month in a computer shop as a tech >>age 21 - electrician >>age 25 - low current tech. - install security systems and smart home solutions etc..
>>26180351 >farm Don't know if that counts, as I was working for my father. From cleaning pig pens to driving tractors >lab Pretty much doing research for the last 10 years or so. Well, the labs changed and my work specification a bit. No real life skills lol.
All these upwardly mobile normies. You people need to GTFO.
>Alberton's courtesy clerk.
Later promoted to cashier, couldn't deal with the retards, and left.
>Pizza Restaurant clerk.
Left after boss became more psycho and couldn't stand her nepotism anymore
Tutored poor kids in college. Hourly pay was OK, but work split too thin between tutors, so I had to move back home after I finished my worthless bachelor's degree
Now a lifeguard at a retirement community. All my coworkers are 6 to 10 years younger (Im 28). California raised the min wage again, so now Im making less than a dollar above the min wage. Too much of a sperg to take advantage of the PTP that floods the place during the summer. Constantly reminded decrepitude is what awaits me even though I haven't enjoyed my youth. Life is depressing.
>Current: Generic Office drone Definitely my easiest job, I work good hours and can spend a few of those just browsing the web or talking to people. Gets very boring on occasion though. >Best job: Landscaper Worked for the national trust and basically helped maintain the park and keep it safe. Didnt really have a boss so when there was nothing to do I'd just drive out into the woods, smoke up and read a book for 6 hours then go home. I quit eventually when i did get a boss, she was fat and therefore couldnt do any psychical labour. Just used to yell at myself and the other people working in the park, afaik she got sacked soon after I quit which bummed me out. >Worst Job: Pawnbroker Taking money from the poor and giving it to the rich (although it was the best paying, I used to get almost 1000 gbp bonus every month). Met some interesting and genuine people but most of the business relied on taking money from people who really needed it more than we did. Never felt guilty about ripping off the alcoholics or gamblers though, the gamblers were always dickheads while the alcoholics were fucking annoying and loved to waste time/ drive out our other customers.
>>26180351 I've been working at a family owned tobacco/beer store for a little over 2 years now. I hate my life, and I hate the customers even more. If you're gonna pay with loose change, precount it don't make anyone count it for you, please. Don't tell me your life story, I really don't give a shit, for fucks sake some lady told us about how fruit flavored beer makes her shit better. Fuck retail.
