I'm an I.T. manager at a car dealership. Essentially, in a workforce of 150 people, I'm the only one that knows anything about computers here, so anything and everything electronic falls upon my shoulders.

Some days, I have all day long to read comics, play internet games and goof off. Other days, I'm wiping computers clean because some idiot uninstalled his antivirus and nuked the crap out of his computer.

Former retail manager, public works employee and killer of people and breaker of things. My profession is Teacher of social studies who hopes to go back to teaching.

Currently a third shift security guard in a senior apartment tower and I build custom miniatures. Anybody want any figures or models built, I'm your man.

Usedbooks, if the battlefield you work at needs any scale dioramas built… maybe a battle scene with a few hundred small scale figures?

Employed at a motorcycle store and in fast food. They're not very well staffed at either, so it's hard to say what my actual position is.

My job until last week was and entry-level job as a debt collector and repo man. Basically I made sure cusomters paid for their shit, and managed credit for a full route (which covered some of Nevada, Utah, and Arizona, although I was in charge of half of the Utah region and all servicable areas in Arizona). If cusomters didnt pay I would send them to more professional debt collectors (which is where it stopped being store debt and became actual debt), or I would take them to court, where I would personally appear against them.

I would suggest this job to anyone. You dont need any knowledge of debt, collections, repo, any of that. They train you on everything, they pump your mind so full of shit that you'll have crap popping out of your ears. And they pay you 12.65 an hour starting out on entry-level, with full health and dental benefits.

Scraping the rust off playground equipment, and inspecting the little plastic thingies on the end of show-laces., are my two specialties. ( Momma always said I'd amount to nuthin'. I guess I proved her wrong!!! Rising above negative circumstances is what I do best!!!

Graphic artist etc… -_-
It's funny, when I was a little teeny kiddy I thought being a graphic artist and having heaps of computers and all that stuff would be cool!
It's not.

I'm hitting my senior year in high school (or grade 12 as we Canadians call it), so there are some jobs lined up for me for the Summer. Help out my mom with her insurance job which I have no interest in. There's also cut grass (mine and an elderly relative's lawn=$$$!), split and pile firewood, and work on my webcomic. I won't have many dull moments this Summer

I work inventory at a retailer (Target, specifically, if you live in the US), which means I get up at 5 (the one in the morning) and clock in by 7. When I'm not doing that, I'm either in school or being an actress-for-hire.

And when I'm not doing that, I tend to just fall over exhausted.

LOl I just “quit” today. I used to work at the art store. I hate people.

I'm a student now and I have to make all the money I saved up last until next year. still making store signs when I feel like it. (9 bucks an hour to play with paper ftw)

I'm also a psychic healer on the side.

I don't charge for this. Its up to you to donate an amount commensurate to how much I've helped you. I accept in cash or kind (goods and services). And I only advertise with word of mouth for the most part.

So this job isn't really a moneymaker. If I do this fulltime, I'd be a homeless man. A part time fastfood worker would still make more. I'm not out to scam people.

But in spite of that, I get more respect from people when I say I'm a healer and/or comic artist and/or writer as compared to my fulltime job that feeds me and pays the bills.

Ironic isn't it.

The job that pays my bills and feeds me = not much respect.
The job I love but make only pocket change = more respect.

lol!

Be sure to make sure people identify you with the respect job when you make news headlines for whatever reason! :)

…The news media ONLY seem to identify people by a job title… at least in Australia.
It's all “unemployed man”, “Former prostitute”, “student”, “construction worker”, “Businessman” etc.

It's ridiculous. o_O

They should go with “human being” or identify them by species. Running(Homo Sapiens sapiens) under an interviewee's picture would be an improvement.
The identifiers are so random anyway.

Student assistant at the library. Only 15 hours, but hey…every penny counts. It's not easy to juggle a real job AND being a theatre major at the same time, with all of the lab hours I have to get.
