I move stuff around on a forklift all day. The pallets have numbers on them and I stage them in the lane with the corresponding number. Its easy as hell.

I work for one of the fastest rising financial companies in the UK and I love it.

I sometimes work as a personal assisstant for my handicapped sister when her regular assisstants aren't there. It's pretty chill, since it's in my own house I can do pretty much whatever as long as I help her out and stuff.
It's not the worlds most fun job, but it's my first one

And holy .... is the pay good (for a kid who isn't 18 yet and doesn't have to pay any expenses).

Schecters don't have baseball bat necks.
Get the .... over it.

I was a professional musician up until a few months ago. I liked the job, but not enough to justify the modest amount that it paid. I now work for a chartered accountancy firm, and whilst its a boring job the money is goooooood. This means I can actually enjoy my music more, since I can now play whatever I want to, purely for fun without having to care about if what Im doing makes money or not, plus I have plenty of funds available for new/custom gear

I'm a Domino's delivery driver. This is the most stress free job I have ever had. In all of my other jobs, there was a supervisor breathing down my neck all ....ing day. My truck gets about 20 mpg, the mileage reimbursement from Domino's is more than enough to pay for the gas used in each trip, and most tips are big enough to pay for more than a gallon of gas.
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.

Until I graduated in May I was getting paid to go to Uni for free. That was a pretty sweet setup, but now that I've graduated I have to put my big boy pants on and get a "real" job. I've applied for a position teaching English as a second language in South Korea, and if I don't hear back soon I'm going to go on a murderous rampage.

My main source of income is a temp (ish) job with some guy. Basically he gets contracts to clean kitchen hoods every 3 months (I think) and I do that. So it is one of those things where I am REALLY ....ing busy for a week or two every couple months but other than that, nothing. As for how I like it...I ....ing hate it. You get super greasey. Like you have grease in your hair for days, under your nails, it ruins clothes, it gives you black spots for a few days. Plus, no one ever tells you that AFTER the power washer is used you have to HAND CLEAN the rest of it. And sometimes that means laying down on top of a refrigerator with less than 3 feet of working space in any direction...and that sucks the most.

Alas, I digress. After all, I sign my soul away to the US of A in July to become one of Uncle Sam's Misguided Children (USMC) so it will at least be something I enjoy.

The warehouse I work at is a Rite-Aid warehouse. We have a massive pharmaceutical section thats all super secure and stuff. When I was on unloading, each pallet of RX we took off was worth around $180,000. I even had a $2,000,000 pallet once. Needless to say, I was very very careful when I unloaded it haha.
