List all of the jobs you have had since you began working until now
>Starting working at 18
>Currently 20
>18-19, Hvac apprentice
>20, Fedex warehouse worker
>20, Amazon warehouse worker
>20, Hvac apprentice again
whats the most tolerable job out of them?
I like being an hvac apprentice, I hope I can became a journeyman one day and make it into some kind of career. However, working at both of those warehouses was hell, I only worked there because of covid. I wanted to kill myself every single day I worked at those places, It was long hours, and humiliating. I am so glad to be back where I'm at.
>Worked at the beach
>Store clerk X 3
>Office drone X 2
>Warehouse worker
jesus christ. warehouse work must be pretty fucking bad if you preferred them over hvac. I did hvac in the summer in florida for 3 months while depressed as shit before getting fired for "unsatisfactory performance" and not caring about the job. Blazing fucking heat and climbing in dusty ass attics contorting my body to navigate those cramped spaces and handling heavy, sharp sheet metal and insulation into these richfag houses was the worst hell on the planet. Somehow I never thought to use a fucking dust mask that would have been a life saver.
You see, I like doing that shit. I mean, I don't like doing it physically. But there's just something psychologically satisfying about doing all of that. I feel like I actually am contributing something to society. Sure warehouse work is easy, but that's the thing, it's too easy. It hurts my ego I guess. It makes me feel fucking pathetic and worthless and like I am doing really nothing for society. I mean, that wasn't the only reason I hated working at warehouses. Plenty of other reasons why I wanted to off myself and a lot of it was just shit working conditions.
>odd construction jobs here and there at 18-22
>pizza chef at 22
>Sysadmin Temp at a warehouse at 23
>Lone wolf sysadmin at a startup at 25
>Application admin for some bullshit oracle java accountant software at a bank at 26 (literally did jack shit but read the documentation about the application and go to the gym in the office building)
>sysadmin in the monitoring team of an ISP at 27
>Monitoring Infrastructure engineer at same ISP at 29

Honestly my favourite one was the pizza chef job and the only reason I left was because I had to deal with customers and picking up the orders, would've been amazing if I could just crank out pizzas alone in the kitchen.
Now I just have to listen to faggots complain and be inefficient in their meetings and I hardly get to do any real DevOps type of shit and draw diagrams and manage how other people implement shit.

Pay is very good though.
>18-21 retail
>21-23 factory floor wagie
>23-32 (current) multiple warehouse jobs on all logistic positions, including forklift driver
Now I got a nice 9 to 5 office job.
Pay is kinda shit but workplace is small and I'm already eyeing up some pay raise.
Never stepped a foot inside an university.
out of high school at 17
>18, 3 year apprenticeship as an accountant (fired because autistic)
>24 (now), official in training (tax office)
This is a living hell. Pure punishment for my many sins.
im 28 and still work in pizza, I want to leave but I know ill hate any other job I ever work. Something about the pizza grind, and all the bottom dwellers of society that you work with really gets me.
Living the dream mate.
>wagie at 16
>didn't work in college besides a few odd jobs (I checked my privilege already)
>majored in a meme
>start cooking at 25, long gap of neetdom
>didn't hate it, turns out if you can show up on time consistantly for the evening shifts you're already ahead of 90% of the rest of the crew
>get tired of it, go back to school to get a real degree
>get an associates in Computer Science, then signed up for a meme coding bootcamp (the coursework was actually really good, well worth the money)
>can't find a job because every entry-level code monkey position requires you to be proficient in sixteen different languages with 120 years of experience
>back to neetdom
It's all so tiresome.
I'm 35 and I've easily had over 100 jobs. The average length of time for each one is probably 2-3 weeks. I've had dozens of jobs for only a day, and probably just as many for only a few days. A number have been for a month or two, and the longest job I ever had was for about a year. I've moved around a lot and lived with various family members, and always managed to get shit jobs in retail or fast food. I can't even remember them all honestly, but none of them were good. The one for a year was the most recent, at Dollar General, and I think the only reason I stuck with it is because I was abusing DXM daily and didn't really care where I was or what I was doing. I finally managed to get on NEETbux and hopefully I never have to wageslave again.
was a conscript for my country's military in a shitty unit , felt basically like a wagie only I got paid like 1/10 the minimum wage through a military 'salary'.

Thanks original dad
HR is gatekept by the most incompetent, petty and vindictive roasties on the planet. As a whole, HR's purpose is entirely parasitical. There's no actual interest by the HR department to find the right person for the vacant job, or even a warm body to fill in the slot, as long as Stacy or Rashaunda gets her paycheck on Friday because she clicked-and-dragged her mandated number of resumes into the recycling bin icon, HR has done its job. The poor wagies that are already working the actual job, the service that actually brings in revenue for the business, just have to work harder to shoulder the load while their labor goes to subsidize HR's laziness. Forget killing the lawyers and hanging the bossman, when the revolution comes it's HR that's going to be the first against the wall.

OP here
Yeah also forgot to mention I sold a little bit of weed on the side this year but I didn't really count that.
When I went up to see my grandparents over the summers as a kid I would often go to this tour mine my grandpa worked at to spend time with him. I would spray clean helmets, break up coal to give as souvenirs with this iron rod, go in with him on the various tours, etc. Would get $15 for the day and whatever I wanted up front. Aside from that kind of odd job/under the table shit though,
>enlisted in the navy at 19, got medically discharged a few months later from a fucked leg, it got better though
>worked at burger king for a little over a month
>worked at a guard shack outside of a warehouse for a little over a month, left because they fucked with my pay
>was a grocery manager from january last year to the middle of march this year, just didnt want to deal with it anymore
>tfw 22 years old and all I have to show for it are guns, a decent noob portfolio on robinhood, and $6800 in my bank account
Right now I am trying to find a job in an industrial park right down the street, a warehouse for whatever reason rejected me but tomorrow I am going to talk to a guy to set up an in person interview for a material handler spot at a different company. Im thinking of eventually getting into welding at a local community college when this covid bullshit fucks off, I dont think 4 year bachelors is a good fit for me just yet for multiple reasons.
HR and management tend to be staffed by complete pricks who cant even do their own job right, only that job can potentially be the difference between you getting one yourself.

>Long Johns. I worked with crack heads, an ex-convict, and a full blown lazy retard for 8.50.

>Smuckers Plant (Focus Work Management.) I got baited into working for 14.00 an hour, took them months to pay me, because my "bank numbers were wrong". Confronted the supervisors and found i was being paid 7.25 an hour). A nigger got pissed off because I was sick one day and I had liquid shit for 45 minutes and he wanted to fight. Threatened to put him in the county morgue if he touched me, it was literally my last day, by that point so I left in the middle of the day and had him handle the boxing machine himself. There was a Mexican dude who immigrated from Chihuahua, Mexico literally nicknamed "Beaner" and took no offence to it and a hardcore Indian hippie who wanted to buy my van, he was pretty cool.

something akin to what I actually studied in college

Every job has been a case of the grass is always greener. I find each job I hate more than the last for different reasons, but I've learned being disloyal is more amenable to my pay check. Current job is at least a field I think I want to work in, though I miss working outside parts of the time. My job history is all over the place. As was my college degree, considering I almost failed out of university at my lowest point (was/am very depressed).
I drive a bus.

Ended up getting a comfy career out of just taking up a student part time work offer during my masters (which was also a "fuck it lets just do it I got nowhere else to go" deal)
Also I forgot I took a year off from going to university from 18 - 19 where I went on jobseekers and going to all sorts of bullshit courses and shit.
McDonalds still work there
was working at a call center taking troubleshooting calls for an ISP up until a few days ago. people are just so fucking ungrateful and disrespectful over the phone and I'm a sperg so I couldn't handle it.
I worked at burger king for one day when I was 16. Never had a job since

Based dough anon, what did you have to do to become a data analyst?
Retail at the same store from 19-26 where I worked my way up to Supervisor, pay was always shit but I just got too comfortable at the position for whatever reason. Just turned 27 and finally work a Help Desk position where it's slightly more pay but more rest on my joints which make me feel like I am 45.

I took electrical training when I quit the second job. Got the certificate but every other job involving electrical had some form of asshole lead or manager that wouldn't schedule me for at least 4 days. Couldn't quit Walmart until the debt was paid.
I never liked unions, but with USPS I really despise them.
Now I'm just saving up for a van to mod and go about the country. Still live with my parents, but that'll change coming mid Fall. Also got into some crypto so I'm not without "assets."

The language interpreter gig was god awful. Paid decently at the time but god damn, the only people that need interpretation to English and live in America are the dumbest of immigrants.

>As a whole, HR's purpose is entirely parasitical
So much of what they do is scheduling pointless interviews for people they already rejected just to pad their hours so it looks like they really mulled over who to pick.

If shaking the manager's hand was a thing that worked in the past we need to get back to it. For the love of God, why do we subject ourselves to this bullshit? Getting a job is harder than doing a job.

I didn't get my first job until i was 30.

30. Programmer.
34. Programmer.
36. Programmer.

At my first job, people at the office thought it was weird that I had no previous experience. Thought I was some kind of fuckup.

Took like a year until I was their goto-guy for essentially all problems too complicated for the other programmers... Turns out that a life in front of a computer does pay off.

Went from total shit underclass to wealthy middle class in zero time. And now because I really have no expenses, I have more monies than I can or even want to use... but life still feels pointless... but I guess that's okay.
>19-25 studying at uni physics bachelor and masters
>26-30 working on a phd while as a researcher in institute

I have mistaken not having time to socialize due to work and study for loneliness and being a loser. No time to get a gf and I thought women don't like me. Turns out getting a gf was easy and getting her to love me was also easy when one is consistent.
Do not take God's name in vain at all ever.
