    I work in a JROTC program. School year: Part time teaching artist, Summer: Boot Camp cadre
    School year I work with the drill teams choreographing and supervising overall. Summer I work as a rappel master (certified for it). Been doing it for five years. Love the job and love the kids but its a lot of work for shitty pay. Pay was decent because I was in school but now that I'm out I want to find something else.

    What kind of work are you interested in doing? I feel u on the a lot of work for sh!tty pay front... Last year I started work as a truck driver. 6 days a week on the road with one day off.Its decent work, I dont need much to get by. but it takes so much of my time up.The one thing i have going for me is the benefits. I have my hopes up.

    Degree or nah? Nah lol
    Why did you pick it? How did you get it? I was unemployed,my father is a truck driver so he suggested I think about it. Got my license and landed an entry level position.
    What do you do at work? (be specific, titles mean nothing) I drive a company truck. Idk I mean its pretty self explanatory
    How long have you been working there? Almost 6 months
    Are you satisfied? Are you looking for something else? Compared to being unemployed this is great. Lmao
    Is the pay good? (is it really holding you down?) Its minimum wage and even though MI just raised its minimum wage its still not very much. Im chillen tho

    I just recently quit because I was getting cheated by the company and my boss and coworker were not doing their jobs(they also just got fired because they were ON HEROIN!...no wonder they sucked.

    And I have had at least seven years of college and no degree...one seminar left in my major and I quit....but I have a nursing degree now but I will not use it. *sigh* Stay in school and get the damn degree! Trust me!

    sorry i did not answer the question very well.

    Parents?

    The fascinating thing about it. All us teachers have to successfully pull off living a double life.

    ......is it safe to come in? Okay. I just package pills at a pharmaceutical plant. Went to ITT-Tech (yeah, I actually went to 'that' school) and got an Associates in Computer Drafting and Design, but after all of those damn applications I've filled out I couldn't get a job in the field. But don't worry. I won't end up like Pookie from New Jack City.

    What is your occupation/profession or job? A writer in the marketing department of a very popular retail store.

    In addition:
    Degree or nah? Several...that I don't use. (lol)
    Why did you pick it? How did you get it? I've always been a writer and grew interested in marketing/advertising. This job kinda fell in my lap, but I still had to work for it. Applied. Interviewed. WOW'd 'em. Got it.
    What do you do at work? (be specific, titles mean nothing) I'm a copywriter, which means I write internal and external communications for marketing/advertising...mostly internal.
    How long have you been working there? 6 months
    Are you satisfied? Are you looking for something else? Hate it...not what I imagined, but it's paying the bills.
    Is the pay good? (is it really holding you down?) It's not bad, but apparently (according to some) I'm underpaid.

    What is your occupation/profession or job?

    Nursing Assistant and Licensed Phlebotomist

    In addition:
    Degree or nah?
    Nah. lol.But I'm working on it as I'm currently in school
    Why did you pick it? How did you get it?
    I picked it because I didn't want to work jobs that had nothing to do with what I wanted to do, which my goal one day is to become a Physician in the capacity of a Nurse Practitioner, I'm thinking of specializing in pediatrics but the night is young. lol. And I got it because I applied and got hired.
    What do you do at work? (be specific, titles mean nothing)
    As a nursing Assistant I help the patients get dressed, assist them with medication and daily hygiene needs. As a Phlebotomist, you draw blood, process specimens and assist with also centrifuging specimens as well.
    How long have you been working there?
    As a nursing Assistant for about ten months and for phlebotomy since december.
    Are you satisfied? Are you looking for something else?
    As a phlebotomist yes, I decided to become a phlebotomist to do something more medically oriented.
    Is the pay good? (is it really holding you down?)
    It is, I've managed to garner alot for my someone my age, so I feel blessed because of that.
