Where do you work? Where have you worked? Who have you worked for? Etc. Talk about it here, with no repercussions from employees/employers!

I plan on working at the local Gamestop soon.

TopMan is an epic shop. Shame working there is shit. Emos should stick to H&M, the faggots. Discount ties.

I've been working for my classmate's mom two weeks ago, since they went on vacation. I had to take the dog out three times a day, clean up after 3 cats and check her e-mails.

It's not as easy as it sounds, especially if their grandmother wants to cook me meals like liver with onion and green tomato sauce with beef.

Pretty much like the Gamestop here. But I know the manager pretty well and he's hilarious. Him and his friend who works there remind me of Clerks.

I'm unemployed due to not having a car to go to my job. and everyone else in my household has a job so I can't get a ride from them. I am however going away for the weekend late this month to work a convention for my aunts business [selling home school supplies =P]. Its going to be ****ing hectic.

Once I get my drivers in September I'm going to hopefully buy a car and get a job...

My dad's a gunsmith, so i help him with that. Basicly i have to completely ungrease the gun parts, then cover them with this acid, that is pretty harmful, so i have to wear a mask, and gloves, sometime I don't bother with them though. The acid rusts the gun parts. after i cover each part with about 3 layers (there are usually about 3-5 parts to do) I have to put them in boiling water for 10 min. Then I take them out, and get an air compresser to dry them off. Then I polish them with this spinny metal brush thing. Then i torch each part for about 5 seconds, with a ****ing 1000 degree torch (not kidding). Then i repeat the process about 8 times. Basicly, this changes the color from silver, to black/blue/shiny color. This makes the gun like three times as expensive. Then, I put the gun together, after my dad is done engraving, and making the stock or handle, depending what gun we're doing. And then he sells it on gunbrocker (ebay for guns). Eachgun go from 700-3000 (we only do handguns). The whole prcess takes about 4 hours.

And, if you didn't read that, I'll just tell you my pay. I basicly get 20% of the price the gun goes for. So usually i get something around 100-400 every week.

Crappy job, but good pay ;]

Do Kroger. Won't have to put up with loud/fat customers getting mad cause you forgot their fat ass kid's extra pickles on the Big Mac. Also won't have to smell that disgusting smell that is Mickey D's.

I can't understand what you're saying, rephrase please.

Kroger is a convenience store, like the Food Lion or Publix.

He said;
He shit bricks when you said you made 70 (dollars) a week at McDonalds.
Then he realised you were on about dollars, because 70 dollars is about, 35?
Not that much.
