Jobs... And Stuff

Post  Guest on Wed May 19, 2010 3:33 pm

For those of us that are 'productive members of society' (lol), what do you do?

For those of us that aren't... lucky.

I unload trucks for Wally World. Without me... well, not much would change. But it'd take them a few minutes longer to get the stuff from the truck to the floor.

Right now I'm applying for an in-store assistant job at this DIY store but I won't hear whether I get the job until next week. I also work as a Junior Youth Club leader every fortnight but that's voluntary.

Didn't get the job from that DIY store, so I'm looking around again. I have another interview at this supermarket chain soon so hopefully this time.

I commend you good sir. I'm not surprised if you won't be able to keep this up, we all have our limits.

I work at GNC as a "sales associate" where we sell supplements that you really actually don't need unless you're conceited or in a desperate state of deficiency! Very Happy:D:D Be sure to enjoy our extra high costs that you can beat online any day!

In all fairness, I do take multivitamins, fish oil, and Syntha-6; however, even with my employee discount the majority of that is cheaper online... still. Suspect I work next to no hours, and my boss is not a very nice person.

I've been busy as hell at my job so I apologize for my absence here.
Worked 28 hrs my first WEEKEND. Then 56 first wek and 59 last week. This week is down to 49 which is good cuz I'm taking 12 hrs of school a week.

~Can't wait for my Friday check of 100+ hours. It's gonna be awesome.~

Got another job interview, took this company 3 weeks to get back to me. This is my 3rd major job interview so, 3rd time lucky? Maybe? Anyway, getting a job is the 1st thing on my list of 5 things I aim to do over the Summer. Tricky, especially those last 5 (Razz) but I'm dedicated.

1: Get Job
2: Develop Other Interests
3: Get Thinner/Healthier
4: Become more Social
5: Get GF

The 5th one will probably not go down so well but if I achieve the first 4, it should become easier.

1 & 3 are my goals! I curse school....I get next to no exercise because of it. Sad

I'll be looking for a job shortly as well. But my other goal is to get my driver's license this friday. (Everyone please do your lucky rituals so that I pass!!! xD) I hope I can find a job as well...I really need one...having little money sucks...

Had an interview last wednesday at this Supermarket chain. Was not was I expected, had to do it with 2 other people as a group interview but I think that worked better for me lol. I'm particularly hoping to get this one as it's quite a good place to work for.

I should find out during the week if I got the job or not

Dislike my job right now. Sad

On top of other duties, I now have to wear one half of a 100lb+ worm costume in the sweltering heat for 5+ hrs every weekend and get pushed around by annoying children, teens, and adults. I'm gonna see if I can switch somehow or something because it was one of the worst experiences ever.

And here I was complaining at home that I was given short-notice on a follow-up interview to my last job interview (Received an email today for an interview tomorrow). But seriously though, that sounds like a pretty bad job, here's hoping you can switch

Yeah, it bites, but my superiors are never around to talk to. Razz

But I do like the main portion of my job, running lights for a 30min theatre musical show at an amusement park.

Employers are rather picky these days and they want something that looks good on your resume.

I'm convinced that I'm about to be fired in the next hour or two. Why? Because my boss is a gaping Miscreant, and I don't think I can contain my "excitement" for the only two hours I was scheduled to work this week. He's been acting more of a sophist lately since I got in my car wreck. This is my first day back, and every time I've spoken to him, I've gotten the impression that he's either a genuine nitwit, or he thinks that I was mentally retarded by the accident.

Very nice.

Thanks to two hours of unnecessary manual labour, I have to see an orthopedic surgeon. D: Stupid deltoid tear. Thanks a lot work.

That blows. The only days I was scheduled to work were holiday hours (Sunday and Monday), and my boss knows those are the only days I see my fiance. Since I knew he would schedule me like that, I waited until the last second to give him my medical leave note. I hope he wound up having to work yet another holiday weekend.

So I've been doing the paper route for a couple weeks now. After I've made my last delivery today, it rained. Go figure <.<

I was drenched when I got home.
