I work in the produce department of a grocery store part time for 9 hours saturday and sunday. Being on your feet most of the day sucks but I steal stuff to eat all the time so it's not that bad

Work at a car shop tinting windows. It was extremely difficult to learn and not a lot of people can do it correctly. But, I love what I do and I get to see cool cars here and there.

Originally was a complex supervisor for THPRD which is basically just a recreation district that serves many parts of the city that I live in. Literally the easiest job ever, just walked around different sites to help report and aid players who were injured if any, along with occasionally setting up and putting away equipment. The majority of my day was just talking to my co-workers or getting free stuff from concessions. They stopped scheduling me all of a sudden though and apparently I am still technically "employed" with them, even after having not gotten a shift in over a year now.

Now I work at Office Depot, which has been a surprisingly fun experience, not at all because of the work I do, but rather, cause all my co-workers and managers are probably the most down-to-earth, funniest people to be around. We're all really good friends and often go out to eat at random restaurants after our shifts.

I'm a grad student. It's very good because I get to do a variety of things. Most of what I'm doing involves coding/data analysis and problem solving. In addition to that there's lab work which is much more like manual labour but can give you a break from the brain stuff. Also I get to travel a lot for field work / conferences which is really cool. Combine that with flexible hours and I really enjoy it.

The only problem with grad school is that the job and the work culture is really highly dependent on the advisor. Mine doesn't really give a shit as long as I can demonstrate that I'm actually getting things done. Some people's advisors expect them to work twice the number of hours they're actually payed for. At the opposite end of the scale you'll get advisors who will just leave for over a year and communicate with their students once every couple of months.

Overnight Receptionist/Security Cameraman at a senior living home

40 hours a week, 3 12 hour shifts and 1 4 hour shift

pretty easy, my job consists of basic clerical work & menu preparing & cloth folding for the morning. i usually bring in a yoga mat to do stretches/sleep during downtime and the majority of my shift is spent doing college work or reading books.

i also play tf2 and officials at the front desk

sports editor for a regional newspaper in southeast mass

on the books i get paid $12 an hour for around 5 hours a week (should be 7 hours per week but the paper's finances are shit), but i usually just get paid for the finished product (the column) rather than the hours i put in

ideally my job consists of coordinating my staff writers to submit articles that meet word limit, fact check, copyedit and pass them through to the designers of the physical paper, but i often get little to no staff writers working with me per week because everyone wants to write op-eds and not sports lmao

so what my job actually has me do is write the entirety of my column myself and submit, its a pretty shitty gig but it gives me spending cash while im at college and gets me work-related experience for when i move on to an actual quality newspaper

I read about in the army they teach soldiers to flex their calf muscles or feet on sentry duty because something something blood pooling in the feet or some shit. I started doing it and I haven't had sore feet since. Plus get some better shoes or memory foam insoles

Summer job was a Dungeon & Dragons (5e) Dungeon Master. Actual job was summer camp counselor, but over the years I've been able to swing it to be a dnd DM for money ($14/hr Ontario). Honestly makes my summers super fun as I'm paid to more or less practice and improve my dnd skills.

Software engineer at Siemens. Love the work because I get to pocket sweet German taxpayer money and the people are all really cool on my project. I'm also pretty good at it, have an unrestricted work schedule (I can come and go when I wish, the only important thing is the number of hours I work but that's flexible as well, I can push/pull hours around to make extra holidays if I work a lot or I can just work less and make up later. It can be dangerous though, dug myself into a 40h deficit around last Christmas which was a pain to get through.) and can work from home occasionally if I don't have important meetings. Plus some other nice benefits mean that all in all it's very easy to be a pseudo-neet next to and I can align my work with my gaming schedule.

Edit: wrote it from phone so I fixed some typos.

somehow got moved into our cyber security team as a security analyst after two years of being an IT support apprentice, few months later im on a graduate apprenticeship where i go to uni for cysec 1 day a week and work normally otherwise, and in all of this my company is super supportive

it feels like im actually getting involved in things rather than being told what to do and having suggestions shrugged off, the tech side of things is interesting and being back in a school environment feels way more natural than before

the neet life is special for sure but i cant say it doesn't feel like [7][7][7] now

messiahmoved 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.

Shit dawg I live in Lock Haven, PA which is like 30 minutes away. What a small world we live in.

I currently applied to 5 jobs all related to computer software development. Having an interview next week for one of them, Wish me luck :>.

I work as a Head Administrator for a slowly dying Esport in Europe.
Pretty chill, get to work from home. Co workers are nice, but I have a lot of tedious conversations with mey-mey kiddos.
Pays a buttload and whats best, nobody even knows about that. They all think we dont get any sponsorship money, but we simply put everything in our own pocket. Especially now since one of the Head Admins resigned a couple weeks ago.
Just gonna do this a few more years and buy an island in the pacific to grow old there.
All in all, not great, not terrible... could be worse.

Work summers as a sailing camp instructor for a gated community lake. Making a few thousand a summer to watch 12 year olds go in circles in sailing boats is pretty nice. Sometimes we even get them to race. Mostly just sitting on a motorboat, yelling instruction, towing kids around and listening to death grips with my coworker. The worst part is dealing with the occasionally obnoxious parent, but I only work 8hrs a week so it could be worse.

i work in jewellery shop. I get to learn to fix basic stuff and take care of things which will help if I wanna go into jewellery, having this job will help me get a better job that has paid course benefits, cause i'm old it's really important for me to learn on the job as i'm pretty behind my peers. I like the people I work with and the shops only 30 mins away so an hour of walking a day helps keep me active. downside, it's not 'real' jewellery, more high cost costume, so the growth in this company is pretty bad and I live in a shit town so the customers are generally pretty eh, but I like it in general :-)

I recently started working as a full stack developer for a company that is mainly focused on applications for the printing industry. It's pretty close to where I live, the pay is decent and my hours are pretty flexible considering my royally fucked sleep schedule.

The work itself is pretty fun but I often get confused at all the technical jargon related to printing etc. It's starting to slowly make more sense to me now ever since I recently attended an expo about printing labels. It kinda surprised me how big the expo was considering it was only about printing labels, it seemed like such a simple thing to me on the surface but after attending it made me realize how much work is put in behind the scenes.

I'm also slowly getting the hang of things like using a different back-end framework than what I'm used to. I also get to work on a variety of different projects which keeps things interesting.
