When I applied for this job, I didn't think I'd like it at all. The only bad thing about this job is when I'm driving down the street I need to be on, but no one makes their address visible. So I have to call the customer and ask which house is theirs.
I forgot to mention, I listen to metal when driving.

*Dealing with customers in a professional manner
*Working with customers to resolve complaints
*Numeracy
*Responsible cash handler

If you can get around the supermarket you've also got

*Stock rotation

Back when I was in high school, I was a life guard and when it was dead I'd play guitar when no one was around...so in a sense I was paid to practice!

i make signs(like out the front of a shop, not some supposid vessal of god). huge stickers/cut vinyl usually, very little work with a paint brush. sometime we do 3d lightbox type signs. last week we 'installed' a 2ton 8m heigh monster. that was a HUGE .... around i wont bore you with the details. i make stickers also.

i hate the fact that the world revolves around getting up in the morning to go to work, so i hate work(id rather do other things) but its not a bad job.

within 6 months of starting this job i developed carpel tunnel, it sucks MAJOR HAIRY DONKEY BALLS.

I'm a mining technician, the kind of mine who dig for ore, not the kind that is exploding when you step on it. Basically, I'm designing new mines in a engeneering consultants firm, its pretty nice because I got to draw all the stuff in 3D, but it become boring pretty quickly. Still, I got a good pay and the jobs opportunity around where I live are pretty big.

I spend more time at work than I do at home (or so it seems) but I wouldn't have it any other way. Oh and take all those ".... the Police" & "I hate COPS" comments and shove the up your ass! ha ha

Not to derail the thread, but since you're in SoCal has your department been given any memos on bullet buttons and their legality as it applies to AR's??? And anything on forward vertical grips on AR's (with bullet buttons) as well??

i make suture hooks for a medical manufacturing and engineering company.
if any of you have had meniscal repair, or any endoscopic or arthroscopic
joint related surgery, then it is 70% likely that i have been deep inside
you. deeper than your most intimate friend.

it pays about 28k annualy after tax and offers health, dental, pension, 401k and optional
cancer insurance. alas-- i ....ing hate it, but there are bills and the responsibilities which
justify employment. so i chugg along.

perhaps i'll be able to change my situation once i complete my
degree..

Hehe, I figured many of you guys would be guitar teachers. I teach too, mostly to kids and beginner adults. Doesn't pay much but I like it and I get to say "I'm a guitar teacher" (not that I believe your job is your identity and all that jazz, by no means) It's very rewarding when the students are into it and willing to put in some effort and enthusiasm, but on the flip side it is very frustrating when they don't.

Then I clean offices downtown on weeknights. I actually like that a lot. I can be by myself listening to music and singing as loud as I want cause no one can hear me (most of the time...) and it pays pretty well. Good exercise too. My wife does the job with me, so sometimes I walk in on her singing Dio songs while cleaning coffee pots or something. Good times.
And you get the satisfaction of actually accomplishing something visible at your work place every time, knowing that without you there is CHAOS!
