Jobs

I hate my job, I'm considering quitting. Anyone have a job that pays more than 8.25 an hour and isn't retail that you like to do?

Long story on why I posted this, but I'm on the verge of quitting.

Yes, I get a base salary of $33.54/hr and a 17% shift differential.

But I suspect I am not your target audience.

My wife just started a new job, firswt one in 9 years, $12/hr. Took her since last July to find a job that she wanted AND allowed her to work the hours she wanted. Lot's of offeres for her, but she turned them down to find whar she wanted. We don't need her to work, she wants to.

I waited tables for a while. I made 2.13/hr, but after tips, it came to about $15/hr. Great pay but you had to deal with some crap.

Seph -


There is a signifigant difference between people with careers and people with jobs. Clearly Ponycarman has a career.

If you are looking for a career, you first need education and experience (which you already know)..

If you are looking for a job - that's another story.

I'm also lookin for a new job right now. Very hard though since I'm going to college full time. The good jobs are those jobs that you have to work 12 hour days or the weird shifts like 10am -6pm or something like that. I'm going to try and find me a job this summer that pays more and that I can work in the A.M. and go to college full time at night. currently I go to school in the A.M. and I work at night. Totally sucks. I like the morning shifts better!


My dads trying to get me in his company! He should be calling around 11:00am to day to let me know what he finds out. Thats really the only job I can take because they get out at 3pm which, in return, will alow me to be at school around 5 or so. Pay he said will be around 9.50/hour to start! Hey thats 3.15/hour more than I'm making now! I'm for real, too! LOL. I'll let you all know what he says about the job, if I got it or not!

at school I make $6/hr but its easy as **** so I don't mind it.

Over the summer I make ~$13/hr under the table as a painting contractor working for/with my dad(his own business).

its a pretty well known fact that if you really need money, manual labor is the fastest way to make it. It's hard work, but the fat paychecks make it worth it.

yeah seriously, I'd work for my dad too except he's a nuclear medicine tech. That requires a lot of education, and a lot of hospital knowledge which I'm not all into. I don't think I could inject radiation in people and all that "fun" stuff I never showed you guys this before, but I do designs like this and I've been trying to figure out what I should do with them.

Tell me what you think, any ideas on what I should do? I literally have an art book filled with designs like these. I really enjoy doing this stuff too

as for the job: join the military (soundin like a broken record here) but they pay for college, free place to live, pay you extra money to eat, pay you extra if your married/have kids I am headed to curacao sometime soon for 21 days, which is right next door to aruba and I will be making $117.00 a day, not including all my other pays, so thats like $2500 extra dollars to throw at my savings account. I could go on all day about the military, I am in the Navy so I base my opinion and my experiences on that, other services are different, but I enjoy the Navy. Any questions e-mail me, send me a msg I will tell you anything you want to know.

as for the art: IMO they look like they would be really cool tattoos or something of that sorts.

I fix things for a living. In my case I fix the machines used to build semiconductors. I work Fri-Sat-Sun 7 pm till 7:30 am. There are three of us maintenance guys on this shift and we have 150+ machines to keep running, no more than two of these machines are alike so it's a lot of different stuff. I am the senior maintenance tech. Been doing this for almost 10 years now, this Halloween will be 10 years.

Prior to that I was an assistant manager at an auto parts store.

Prior to that I was in the Navy, which taught me electronics and a lot of other things, did 9.5 years.

Prior to that I was a kid in HS.

So, yeah I have a career. I started out a know nothing kid and look where I am now, a know nothing old fart, lol. Closest I ever got to college was going to a bowl game. What got me to where I am is hard work and an aptitude to figuring problems out.

If I go into the military, I'd probably go into the Navy or airforce. I wouldn't mind flying in a C-130 Spectre Gun ship blowing up stuff from a distance.

As for my art stuff, I have no idea what to do with it.. Lots of people say tattoos, my brother wants to get a tattoo of the blue/black dragon. I was thinking about making them into decals for cars.. I know they'd do well for tattoos, but I don't think it would be enough money to really settle me down well.

I was Navy. If you are looking towards the military for job training don't go into weapons, not much of a market for those skills unless you are thinking cop or security.

My son in law is in the Army and he drives a self propelled howitzer. Not sure how that'll translate to a civilian job.

One problem, so to speak, with military training is that a lot of civilian hirers don't know what it means when you are trained by the military to do a job. They are looking more for a diploma from a school. So you either have to explain to them what you learned or get lucky and have an ex-military type doing the hiring.

I've been working for the same software company for almost four years now.. started at age 15. Now I'm up to 18/hr... altho since I'm a full-time high school senior, my hours aren't much, not to mention, I commute in equivelant rush-hour traffic to people who go into Washington, D.C. and leave home in the evening (in fact... the majority of the reason it takes so long is the D.C. traffic merges with me on my way out).

actually the Navy is changing it now so you have a certification when you get out.

Be that as it may, you still have to educate the person looking to hire you what that means.

Yeah I could do the tattoo thing, but I dunno. I feel like I could do more with the designs. Hell, I could sell them and then go put them on shirts or some crap.

I can see how that could be frustrating well, scratch that idea. my grandpa was in the Navy back in WW2, he was one of those guys who wrote backward on that huge see-thru window thing showing coordinates
