What I love:

- Good hours. Coming home and leaving work is NOT in the rush hour.

- Good shift. No supervisor behind my back tellin me do this do that. As long as I do the job required, I can sit down and surf the net most of the time.



NOW UPDATING!!!

I love the people I work with in my department. They're so much fun and just all around great people. :)

That and the joy of creating something I'm really proud of and knowing it's going to print for thousands of people to enjoy.

- Nobody cares if I pull a comic off the shelf and start reading it when there's hardly any one in the store.

- The interesting debates I can have with the people I work with

If any of you are wondering, yes I work in a comic shop and no I don't get freebies

I can go to work naked if I want!

Yeah… I work at home… -_- But it's a nice home :)

The best thing about it is getting paid for doing not much more than I'd do if I wasn't getting paid.

Hmmmm, another great topic!

I'm a tech support call center geek, so:

1. Great shift (10 hours a day, 4 days a week)
2. Cool co-workers and bosses
3. Problem-solving all day long (I love problem solving!)
4. I can draw my comics while I take calls!!!!! (BIG plus!)

I work at a movie theater and I like the people who complain. We have a giant sign outside saying no outside food or beverages and I confescate like 15 cups of starbucks a day (its a small theater so thats a lot). A women threw coffee at one of our managers the other day… thats the reason I do what I do :)

Notice that this thread is about 1/3 the size of the HATE about your job thread? …meh!

They pay a lot of money, sometimes just to stand around and look at things. I complained about working seven days in a row in the other thread, but on the plus side they pay doubletime seventh day and beyond. I like not having to worry about whether or not I can afford food or rent or other things -

Also - unlike my last job couple of jobs, if you put a lot of effort into your work, the supervisors will actually notice.

I used to work at a game store, but the contract was only temporary. It ROCKED. There were a lot of things I liked, but most of all:

-The people. One was like an older brother, and another was like my second father! XD And the chats… God, those guys were so funny.
-The DISCOUNTS. >D 35% off preowned games, ohhh yeah!
-Got to meet a lot of new people. Part of the job description was actually talking to the customers and getting them to buy stuff. XD! I found it hysterical how 9/10 customers wanted a DS.
-I got insight into new games coming out, etc.
-Got to play games during my lunchbreak. >;;

I choose when I want to do my hours, the pay is decent and the people are often.

However, the actual work is something I hate, so my next favourite thing about my job is I'm leaving in a few weeks!

Oooo that sounds like an awesome job, Quiche! Mmmm free samples. I hope its good ice cream. :D Plus, you make people happy by selling them ice cream!

Updates Thursdays.

Ummm…I work in comics…what is there not to love. And it sure beats my last job of doing desktop support for an apparel company in East L.A.

And it's ALOT better than being a Reality TV producer…of course maybe it was the shows I was producing, but working in Reality TV blows!

Have you ever driven 80mph down an active runway in an SUV with an Airbus 310 coming down at you from 3-5 miles away moving at 160mph?

Its pretty exciting!

I like being able to listen to my music. And working with only one other person. We get to chat all we want and not get yelled at. Thats cool.
Tired of messing with a banner. Just visit the comic at…

I teach Math, Science and Technology…MOSTLY technology!

And it's HIGH SCHOOL…so…I love the end of the year - graduation and living the victorious moment of watching the seniors cross the stage.

That said, the drama between teens is pretty cool too. Nothing makes life more fun than when one girl sends another a gift-wrapped dead rat on her birthday because she heard from a friend of a friend that her man was banging the recipient of the dead rat.

Priceless.

What do I love about my job?
The same thing I hate about it.

And that's dealing with people. The belligerent, the intoxicated, the belligerent who are intoxicated, the idiots who can't read signs…

Then my boss finds out I'm enjoying my job a bit too much, and gets me posted in the middle of the jungle where I'm surrounded by brown tree snakes, wild pigs, and other creatures for 8 hours at night…

Chii you are an everflowing fountain of lol.

Condemning someone for internet art theft… That's like saying that you hate someone forever because they took a shit in your toilet. Or something.
