Job Hunting!

hey just thought i'd let everyone here in on something

i'm looking for a new job! walmart has outlived its usefulness to me, i got a decent raise this summer, and now they're wanting to let the computers at home office schedule me for under 40 hours, when i just got hired on as full-time 40 hours a week a few months ago. This will not be tolerated, so this week, I am submitting several applications, asking for no less than $11 an hour. I don't have anything to lose, because i'm not quitting walmart until I actually get hired somewhere else that will pay me more-even if it is under 40 hours a week.

My first application was to Geek Squad at best buy as an in-store pc technician, also applied for the delivery driver position.

I think the second application will go to circuit city, but I need to drive there, as there is no online application.

I'm looking for a specific job this time, whereas, when I moved here, I was only getting walmart job to get my foot in the door (rent, bills, etc needed paying), now that i'm kinda settled, i can start being picky and looking for a job that has me fixing computers and techy stuff.

If that fails and i don't get a job as a pc tech by march....i'll probably call a military recruiter and see if i can get a job like it through them.



so, while i put this new thread up in Aresen, let's discuss what jobs we've been through in the course of our stay here!

I've been:

pizza hut cook, army recruit, amish furniture packer guy, listerine distribution assembly line worker, high school custodian/janitorman, photo lab specialist, and again, pizza hut cook (but i quit that job for good !)

what's everyone else been?

For some reason, I highly doubt that.

I worked at a movie theater. Pretty cushy job :-/

The free movies made up for the crappy minimum wage, though.

Now I work as a contractor for the IT department I work at. Mostly dealing with tape backups.

In high school I worked as an usher/ concession stand monkey/ clean-up crew troglodyte at the local cineplex.

After graduation, I was a shop jockey at Pedulla Guitars.

When that job ended, I just did a series of random woodwork/ cabinet making/ interior and exterior house painting for a couple of years. Hated it.

Once I decided to get off my ass and got accepted to college, I took 2 full time retail jobs to earn money: The 3 to 11 shift at Bradlees; and the midnight to 8 am stocker shift at Shaw's supermarket.

Oh... and the whole time this was going on, I was playing in bands. Usually losing money at it!.. but that was never really the intent...

Once in college, I took a job as an usher at the college's concert hall (where I work now.)

That moved into a stage-crew light and sound tech gig after a couple of months. That led to a lot of freelancing tech gigs. Also, a summer position as a maintenance worker at one of the city's large outdoor concert venues. Did that 3 summer's in a row.

After graduation, I took the gig as chief engineer/ tech guy on the John Lennon Songwriting Contest Promotional Tour Bus. (It only lasted 3 months... but it was a very LOOOOOOONG 3 months!)

After that: more freelancing, and some part-time/ on-call work for a local sound co. Became one of the regular engineers at a local jazz club.

Finally, I was hired back on full time by my alma mater, as a stage manager/ concert engineer for all the small recital halls.
I eventually worked my way up into being the A1 tech at the main concert hall, which is where I find myself today.

Any questions?

That's classified... The rest of these folks don't have clearance enough to be in on that.

Well for the past 20+ years now I have worked at the same old place.

Boeing Commercial airplanes. I have had about 7 different jobs here but for the past 11 or so I have been a CNC skin mill operator.

Plus I am also the #1 stallion in my home.

We are hiring too.
