At my job, I get to overhear bits of other people's conversations with customers, so we write down the best quotes. There's a lot of "No sir, I wasn't calling you stupid" and "no ma'am I can't overnight a credit card to Mongolia. Unless you pay for my flight, in which yes! I will see you soon" Also, I learned a lot of really helpful information about credit and banking so hopefully my credit in the future will be awesome (it is shit right now still)

Today I was praised for getting work done in a timely manner. I thought it was simply assumed that I would do my job and that I was merely meeting expectations but I think they were anticipating less effort from me. Now they think I am awesome! This job is really great.

My favorite thing is probably the flexibility of my schedule. Also, free internet (because I have the corner desk I don't have to worry about other people seeing what I'm looking at). I can also go grab food whenever I want and eat it in my lab. We get free pizza every friday during the normal school year.


No dress code, except for wearing a lab-coat!

You, my friend, have been working in the wrong lab(s)!

Well, I actually didn't wear the labcoat unless I was doing something dangerous. Like phenol-chlorophorm extractions. Or you know, trying to look important.

At least I get 5 bucks an hour. I might even get 40 hours a week in regularly this summer. That would be...800 dollars a month! This might be good.

My job has given me the motivation to go back to uni and get a degree so I don't end up working in a supermarket for the rest of my days, because it genuinely makes me want to kill people. Also, I talk to my manager about World of Warcraft.

Those are the only positives.

If I'm being really and truly honest, I've got it made.   I really do.  Fucking dream job. Unfortunately, I have to keep reminding myself of that because the idiots I work with are constantly testing my ability to control the urge to punch people who desperately need it in the mouth.

Thank you for this thread.  I'm going to go and try to be grateful for what a good life I have.

That's not a recession, that's a wee blip. When the unemployment rate has doubled in six months and will double again by Christmas (one in four, baby!) and people start emigrating, then you've got a recession. The recession is the only thing that Ireland are world champions at.

The best thing about my future job is that the hours are very good and there's a lot of freedom. The bad thing is that it's the dole.

Yeah agreed, the economy has it's ups and downs, and right now it's pretty far down, but if you compare Norway to most countries we are not even close to mentioning the word recession. Economy magazines and such have declared Norway the best country to be in during a recession because we will hardly notice anything.

I just got a job for this fall! As a student assistant, in a kind of basic course in IT, so it's basically sitting around helping people with HTML, CSS, JSP and some MySQL, which I enjoy (minus, you know, JSP). And the awesome part is that a lot of the people don't bother showing up to get help, so I can basically sit around and do my own school work a lot of the time. 100 hours, ~19USD per hour. Sweet.

Another sweet part of my summer job is that although it's super boring, it pays okay. About 21USD an hour now, I think. Which isn't a lot, but pretty decent.

Today biosafety came around while I was sonicating some E. coli and they got all bitchy because I wasn't wearing a lab coat or safety glasses.

1. I have a job. I am not at all worried about being laid off because of recession things.

2. I do not have to be at work until 1 pm, so I can stay up late and sleep in late.

3. When I talk, people shut up and listen. When I say things should get done a certain way, that is the way they are done.

4. People ask me for my opinion on things, then actually listen and act upon what I have to say.

5. I have 11 direct reports that are becoming increasingly comfortable with me as their supervisor, which is making my life so much easier.

6. My job makes me feel intelligent.

I could keep going for a while.

Yeah I'm pretty glad to have a job, and in particular to have my job because (sorry Gemm!) working in a supermarket is awesome. It requires no skill beyond small talk and making change, the hours are flexible and fit comfortably around college, I get paid almost twice what I got paid in my last job (enough of an increase that even the loss of my own office and phone doesn't dull the gloss) and when I leave for university I will be able to transfer over or just come back whenever I feel like it and they will continue to pay me at full rate.

My shifts fall so that I get five days off in a row, but I still work enough hours a week that I can save up and also buy awesome things. I get a discount on anything we sell which my parents take in lieu of paying rent. My colleagues are generally friendly and being forced to talk to people for twelve hours a week means that I am much more confident and also have finally learnt to banter coolly without being rude to anyone. My uniform is comfortable (althoug soon it will be purple) and when I get really bored I get to go round the shop unshopping all the things people abandoned. Perhaps I have low expectations but even after nine months working there I can't fault my job.

Oh oh another positive thing about my job is that even though I make $2.13 an hour and by Georgia state law when I don't make up to $6.50 in tips my boss is supposed to comp me the rest in my paycheck and he usually doesn't,

sometimes he does!


(I work 39 hours a week. Why do I keep ending up at places that will make me work 39.5 hours a week but if I stay too late or forget to clock out they throw hissy fits because I have stayed for 40 hours and oohhh god that is fulltime can't be having that)

The best thing that I have to say about my job right now, since I've yet to start, is that it exists!

However, there will be some real perks. It's a block and a half away from my house, it's cashiering, so it shouldn't be too trying, the staff I've met are super friendly, I get a 20% discount on everything (it's an import grocery store/deli, and my parents shop there lots), and when I work a full shift I get free food. Also it pays well and they can give me full time once I finish training. And they close at 8 so I'll never have to work evenings. Yay!

I have insanely flexible hours at my freelance job.  It's for the insanely flexible hours that I keep it freelance, because my boss has asked me a few times if I'd go full-time.

Actually, come to think of it I rather abuse how flexible the hours are.  Next week I should probably stay late Monday and Tuesday to make up a little bit for the fact that I'm taking the rest of that week off to go to my sister's graduation.  For reference, I haven't even bothered to tell them yet that I'll be gone most of next week.  That's how flexible they are about scheduling.

i have many reasons to love my job but i'll just name a few.

1.  when someone steals from us, we take a polaroid picture of them, write on there their name and the value of the item they stole, and stick it on a bulletin board in the back room.  this basically means that in our break room there is a bulletin board covered in photographs of incredibly disgruntled hipsters.  this is meant for us to keep an eye out for shoplifters coming into the store, but it just ends up being comedy gold.

2.  a bad ass employee discount which is increased on employee appreciation weeks, which happen twice a year.

3.  being able to wear pretty much whatever the fuck i want as long as it is not offensive.

4.  we get sent promo albums and mixes by the company to play at the store, which are only played for a limited time.  what happens to these cds when they are no longer needed?  we get to rifle through them and keep them!  and i am practically the only person into indie rock stuff so i pretty much get first pick of what i want despite being the new kid.

I get tasty food for free on my break and free drinks.

They sometimes have another kp in doing the dishes and it leaves me to do pretty much whatever I want within reason ( the other day I ended up wandering about town buying small things that the kitchen needed).

One of my best friends works at the bar and all the other people I work with are pretty cool.

I got nicknamed by one of the waitresses. My previous nicknames have included "Robbie the Jobbie" and "Gypsy" (although that was one guy and he turned out to be a dick) now I am Robbie the Ray. Far superior to the last nicknames I reckon.


First day I worked I thought it was going to be shit, but it's turning out to be quite good. Woo for fun jobs.

I work with a cute 19 year old who wears too much makeup.

Starting next week I will be riding around town on an awesome schwinn tricycle, selling tacos and drinks out of a hot box on the back, while dressed impeccably and blasting the hottest new tunes.

It is not so much a positive thing about my job as much as the job is fuccin rad.

I went to see my new office yesterday and the main room is just full of people on massive dual monitors drawing shit on huge tablets and playing games and watching youtube. I swear I saw a paper plane glide through. There is designated room for playing new games but when I saw it it was covered in DnD stuff. There is a Wii in the lunchroom. One of my bosses has one of those awesome big white egg chairs like in MiB, another has a hammock.
Also like I get a photo ID security pass and my own big-ass desk with dual monitors and I get sick pay and superannuation and annual leave and stuff, which are all things I have never had before and are pretty awesome. The office is located at Darling Harbour which is a lovely area and has fab shopping, also a monorail.
Also there is no dress code but I am going to be the classiest bitch.

The funding came through for my second job, so I have a job! That's a positive. Hopefully I will get a promotion?

They just hired me an assistant manager, which cuts my workload by about a fourth immediately, and a half as she gets trained.
