Dishwasher ||| Musician/Audio Engineer

Not very difficult, good hours ||| Music is my biggest passion, even moreso than esports, get to do what I love for money. Also wraps back around to esports in the sense that A1s make a fair bit of money

All of my coworkers blow, my best friend got me the job but him and all of my friends from high school quit in the last few weeks ||| when I do audio work for local bands usually I'm also the one bringing, setting up, and tearing down all of the sound gear. Also gigs can be few and far between or frequent as hell. I did 4 shows in one week in september and now I don't have anything until early november

I sell tickets for boat/bus tours in my city. It's pretty chill + my coworkers are cool, but I don't get paid super well + it's seasonal (may to November)

I'm not super into it, but it could be worse.

Have quit and moved back to my home city but i was working in investment finance.

I liked that it was challenging and tbh at first it felt quite cool going to Canary Wharf or whatever, and the money was good. I also mostly liked the people. With most jobs it's the people I liked most.

Disliked that there was a lot of pressure and it was stressful. Plus I prefer the kind of laid back and social cultures you get in start up or more techy firms. Ultimately it also didn't really make me happy. It was fine, but not what I really wanted to be doing.

I work in the kitchen at McDarwin’s (aka McDonald’s if you’re a fucking loser) and have been for about a month now. I like it cuz my managers like me and I have friends from high school who already worked there, and I dislike it because I never knew that standing for 6+ hours every day could be so painful.

servers (at least in the us) make a lot less than minimum wage due to the fact that they can make a lot more with tips. my girlfriend makes 4$ an hour at her serving job (min wage is 8.25 in IL)
edit: ninja’d

I myself work two jobs, at burger king most of the week and at the movie theatre for the rest of the week.

i personally like both of my jobs. burger king is really easy work and at the movie theatre i really like all of my coworkers and the benefits are really nice. i just don’t like working almost 50 hours a week but gotta get through school somehow :)

I cast all the Paladins leagues for HiRez Studios.

I like it because I just love the work, and casting's been a big change of pace from competing. I still get the same successful feeling from a good game after a good cast, different challenge but same rush for sure.

Also, moving to GA from NY has been fantastic so far. I never knew living there but NY is just too goddamn expensive.

Working at a general store. Overall it's ok. Customers like me and I rarely have any negative interactions with them. Most frustrations come from other coworkers not doing what's expected of them though they're cool people 99% of the time.

Still living at home so I don't really need the money and can save most of it for later. Only reason I work there is to keep myself busy. I took a gap year from studying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I knew sitting at home for a year wouldn't be good for my mental health because I tend to close myself off. So I asked them if they'd accept me fulltime and they asked me when I could start

I studied chemistry before and combined it with the same job as student job for 5-6 years. Did it fulltime for the past year. This is actually my final week of working fulltime. Starting next week I'm starting parttime so I can combine it with the new degree I'm going for: Programming. Started classes at the end of September and really enjoying it so far

Console- Also gigs can be few and far between or frequent as hell. I did 4 shows in one week in september and now I don't have anything until early november

I don't know how the scene is in America but when I was working crew for the last couple years to supplement playing gigs I found that getting involved with or working for someone who does Corporate event set up can be a lot more consistent gig wise, the works not nearly as engaging but you can make a decent wage off setting up lighting and audio equipment for some companies PR do and so on.

Also I play bass for a living. I like making the big guitar go dun dun

I sweep up acorns dropped by oak trees. This may sound like something that squirrels should take care of by burying all the nuts themselves, but in urban areas with decreasing squirrel populations, thriving squirrel predator populations (kite hawks and cats), and concrete instead of dirt, excess acorns can become a serious hazard for roadways and ADA accessibility issue for local businesses. Enter me, the human squirrel. I don't eat the nuts though. Just put them in compost. It's seasonal work, but it pays the bills for the rest of the year. I started sweeping acorns by myself, but demand from city businesses grew quickly. Now I've got 3 guys working for me and a big truck to haul off acorns. We call it the nut truck and we call ourselves the nut sweepers.

Civil servant

I like it a lot because its exactly what i've wanted to do for a long time but never thought i'd get into due to how specialised the area is. The people are also very nice and the pay is decent for my age.

Only disadvantage is i'm there provisionally and will need to make sure i do well to get the full job.

Lies.

Exited NEETdom a month ago now. Work in a hospital as a porter. Basically someone who carries garbage bins, medicine and patients around the hospital from one area to another. I do the pharmacy deliveries. May sound easy, because it is. Medicine is everything from IV fluids to small pill boxes. Mostly manual labour, moving about 150 -> 500 kg of fluids at a time in the morning, to 70 -> 100 kg of pills in the afternoon. I have cages with wheels to move the medicine around. Min wage, 8 hours/day, without lunch pay (37.5 hours/week), monday-friday. Fine since I'm living at home with no costs, so all of it goes to savings since I don't buy many things. Also fine since I only have 4 hours of work to do, so I tend to just sit and watch videos on my phone of play sudoku for a couple hours.

Interesting enough when you see people in their most vulnerable and emotional states. A guy got ditched by his mates at the entrance and I took him to A&E. His mum came in and started crying saying "My baby, my baby". Straight out of a tv show. I see a lot of newborn babies too. A few people leaving the hospital in body bags as well. A lot of crazy old people. Lot of blood. I don't really interact with patients much outside of elevators and things, but I still walk through all these wards and clinics and surgery theatres, seeing them knocked out, drugged up or having withdrawal symptoms from lack of cigarettes.

Just for the record, never sit on a hospital wheelchair unless you are actually sick and need to be brought around the hospital.

moved to williamsport, PA for this internship to do conservation work in local PA forest land and state parks.
i'm in a crew of 4 other members and i can say all them are awesome and great coworkers/friends.

needless to say it's some solid ass work. feels great to help conservation workers who simply don't get enough employees. feels very accomplishing to finish many of the various projects that we do.
i'm on edge about becoming a forest/park ranger in the future. right now i'm exploring more towards the conservation side and or forest fire work. conservation work doesn't pay too high which is why i assume there aren't much eagerness for the public to get into it. i like to travel and fire rescue/fire fighting in forest land has its benefits with traveling around most of the west.
