Yeah but I'm pretty sure they don't make as much as I do.

And honestly, the first time I hit that pump and I was next to the truck, the smell hit me like a punch to the face. And my boss said after the first day of smelling that, you get used to it and you don't notice it anymore.

It's true. I don't. People walk by squeezing their noses tight and I'm thinking: what the ****'s their problem?

So being in a car with someone that passes gas must smell like a sweet, intoxicating scent?

I'll tell you, the first thing my boss told me on the phone I kind of laughed at. Now, I'm not laughing at all. He goes, "You like cars? You want a new Corvette? Come fill out an app."

Well my AC broke this summer so the hot air makes it a billion times worse. I'd definitely smell that.

I'm a quality control specialist at Hutchinson's Technologies. We mainly produce hard drives. After I moved from Cincinnati, OH to Eau Claire, WI I started working at a truss plant, then eventually found a opening at Hutchinson's Technologies, applied, got it.

Default Re: What are your job benefits?

there are lots of perks (i assume you mean perks and not benefits- benefits to me is like 401 K and insurance and that shit) - a "lesser" one that people might take for granted that I absolutely love is avoiding needless corporate policy and archaic business standards- i.e.- i wear what I want, I don't have to worry about being clean shaven or any of the "uniform/appearance standards" most of you deal with. Pretty much say what we want, I wouldn't be dropping "f*ck" and "c*nt" around spielberg (until I got to know him better) but there's not a lot of having to hold your tongue. It's very laid back and come-as-you-are. I appreciate that. It's nice to get out and see all these unique parts of the city and meet these interesting/crazy people from all walks of life. The obvious "perks" are working with models and actresses, the money, free movies/screenings, ridiculous hotel rooms, odd ball free shit like clothes, props, or gas. Just nice to be in a creative world too, like lloyd dobler said "I don't want to sell anything, buy anything or process anything. I dont want to sell anything bought or processed or buy anything sold or processed or repair anything sold, bought or processed as a career. I dont want to do that." For my part I'd probably be happier waiting tables than some high paid corporate/office job, I just couldn't do it.

Sounds nice. Good for you DuUuUdDdEeE.

Lamar Doom go **** yourself. Casually mentions that he has one of the most wanted jobs by young adults. BRB applying to be a barback while I read you are enjoying your job to the fullest.

But anyways, I'm using craigslist to find jobs, is there anything else legit to do? I'm going to places in person and doing applications but there has to be another method. Should I just run the yellow pages game and flip page by page and call?

I was shit poor and aimless until my late 20s, I popped around the country like a vagabond gypsy taking odd jobs and chasing girlies. I fancied myself an adventurer of sorts. I had no interest in the socio-economic game and had a great time. You're what, 19, 20? Soak that shit up man. Take shitty jobs and quit them, laugh on your way out. Move somewhere and rent a shitty apartment for 6 months. Try to convert a lesbian, go for broke. You're gonna jump on some well traveled path and work until you're 65? F*ck that shit. This is IT brother man, your life, your time, you won't be back. Sow some mother f*cking oats.

craigslist, newspapers- I mean if you're just looking for a jobby job make up a couple resumes (lie about experience) and hit the pave. Shake some hands, people appreciate that shit. You're a handsome fella, make eye contact, smile, don't quote Jigga.

So what is it that you actually do LD? And how'd you stumble upon that job?

My job... I get a good workout. That's all I can really think of. I do heavy lifting all day, and by the end of the day, I'm sweating like no ones business.
For that exact reason, I've decided to look into data entry for companies, and hopefully get a gig there until I finish my degree.

4 day work weeks with the fifth being optinional overtime. Plus all the trimmings (401K, health + dental, 3 weeks vacation + 3 random days, etc). Cozy desk job, fun coworkers. Lost of internet time.

Pete sucks shitters? Not bad. Respect. I hate having to take squat dumps while I'm in the field or going to a nasty shitter.

And with that kind of OT, the money has to be great.

Not really any benefits for me besides the usual big corporation benefits like full health, dental, 401k, stock options etc.

Perks are I don't have to work in an office and the opportunity to move to another country in the near future.

What exactly do you do? It sounds like you work in film but you insinuate you rub elbows with Spielberg. Callliiin bullshit.
