well, I haven't started yet. I have to take some pre-employment tests first (some shit that has nothing to do with the job, and then a drug test) which should be no problem for me, but after that my training period begins.

I'm working at Sheetz. That's a gas station/convenience store, for those who don't know. My training period is five days, Tuesday-Monday, off on weekends, 8-4 (I think). After that, I'm working afternoons/evenings, probably 3-11 or 4-11 (mom won't let me work past 11. =/). Plus, since it's so close, I can just ride a bike to and from work.

I'm the person that's cleaning the store, taking the trash out, and all that tedious boring shit. Ah well, a job's a job, and I need the money...

I have a job too, follows the same form as yours, I need to get a physical today...grr... But erm, I guess a job is a job. Whatever puts bread in the belly...

I work at a Lumber company though. Its tough physical labor. I lift lots of heavy stuff. All day long...in the sun...Why am I working there again. I'm freaking nocturnal...

Well, *considers his own job*, doesn't sound too bad.

Looks like you'll be getting in more hours than myself, I usually only work 4-5 hour shifts, luckily our payday is in 2 week increments so it adds up.

5 days for training though? I have to say that kind of sucks, considering mine was in one day, but I've heard training is different for every job pretty much.

Good luck, just remember you'll probably absolutely hate it at first. At least that was my case.

Training is nothing. Try two weeks for the Government, five days for Disneyland, two weeks for Tower Records, and one day plus a devirginizing project for Activision.

But, I do want to experience the harsh reality that work is work and not meant to be fun. Tis always fun to feed off your little shattered dreams.

Ah, now that I'm already irritated about some shit my grandmother pulled, I'll be more than happy to reply to your post, Zabuza.

Thank you, jackass, but I already know that work is not supposed to be fun. Go find someone else's parade to rain on. Put in less metaphorical terms, leave me the fuck alone.

I'm not even gonna go into details on the grandmother problem, due to the risk of further pissing myself off.

Xeo: It's not entirely training; I'm being taught the job as I do it, by someone else that works there.

Um, Tamarin... I believe there is a rule about not flaming people. Just reminding you, since he wasn't flaming you and just commenting about training. I also believe that the comment about feeding off your shattered dreams is ment as "your own shattered dreams", not literaly yours.

Congrads on the job btw, I still need to get one.

Yeah, don't flatter yourself by thinking that I feed off your dreams entirely. I meant the population of the earth as a whole. Kind of like how Venom needs to feed on peep's energies to stay alive in Spider-Man...that sort of thing. But, if you wanna tell me to fuck off because you can't deal with crap and can't accept your emotions for what they are, do your thing. It's not like it affects me or anything. I, at least, proudly admit that I am a jackass and a jerk...and yet, I still have friends and a somewhat cool job. Go fig.

So, telling me that I'm something I already knew wasn't a big news story to me. As far as training goes, it's almost a month, and I'm still learning how to do things. In fact, training is often just an ongoing process for most positions. And while it seems that no one wants to accept work for what it is, I wish you luck in your endeavors. Even if I do find joy in other people's misery. Meh...it's who I am. So, we deal.

I know this. I also know that one post like that, one barely even a flame at all, would not be enough to get me banned.

Geez, I'd umpire games for that kind of cash. Well, no, wait. I make more in a week than you do. And, I do more in a week than you do. But still, $100 bucks a week isn't that bad. Go you!

So, basically by stating that you know something about the rules, and you know the loopholes, that you're going to possibly continue because you know you can get away with it. Is that correct, Tamarin? If so, then we think alike. Whether you like it or not...**smirk**.

Ok...i might be jumping in the middle of an arugment here, but my job is awesome. I work with some of my best friends, and we choose our own hours. We're paid slightly under minimum wage, but its under the table, so we dont have to pay taxes. We all have damn sexy tans, and we do lots of hard work, so we're all getting quite buff....i love it.

The way my jobs been going I think I might reconsider "staying with it". I might just start looking around and applying to other places. Yesterday was one bad day for me ...

Eh I've seen you flame people before on this board... *thinks* I can only think of 2 specifically... off the top of my head, but I know there's more...

ANYWAYS

Good job gettin' a job Tamarin. How much does it pay?

I put enough space between flames, generally speaking, to keep myself out of trouble.

And it pays $7.05 an hour.

Now, as it turns out, I'm not really starting until next week. =/ The drug test has to be completed before I can even start. Understandable, though irritating.
