bleh. Thats shitty. I nearly killed someone my second day driving a forklift. Went right instead of left. Woulda broken his legs 100% if he didnt jump, probly worse. Now I just go slow as fuck. That feeling of panic, ill never forget it.

Food isn't so bad once you get used to the routine and how shit works. I wouldn't work there again since you have to deal with people.
I work in a major shipping warehouse and its easy as fuck. A lot of downtime where I just stand around and space out. I don't get along with some coworkers but I have a few I can small talk with so it isn't too bad.
Not really. What was hell was having to work there 5+ hours PER DAY including WEEKENDS. But even that was nothing compared to your bosses getting mad at your for doing nothing when you're not getting customers but you've already completed all the jobs for that day. At that point it's literally kitchen wipedown going at a snails pace #339 for the day.
I used to get really fucking stressed when it got busy back when I worked at a restaurant. I could deal with the orders no problem but I would just completely shut down and not talk to anyone after the rush.
Working at a restaurant really opened my eyes to how much of an asshole I really am and I fucking hate it.
I would gladly take working as a line cook than retail or waiting tables or anything with speaking to strangers.
fuck you, it's flipping burgers. They should be lucky they haven't been replaced with a machine yet, which by the way would probably be more affordable than current minimum wage.
Then fucking invent the robors already, but until then those employees deserve a wage that they can survive on, that's literally the least their labor deserves. Making fatties pay $14 a burger would be a great thing for this nation.
when it comes to food, it makes people extra demanding and anxious and in hurry and picky and selfish and generally in a bad mood.
I actually briefly worked a job that involved collecting and cleaning plastic trays at the food court of a shopping mall, and also cleaning the mirrors and sinks of washrooms but not the toilets themselves, and stress-wise it was just so much better. Unfortunately it was just like 3 hours a day and also the place was dead so it was just me and my 50+ year-old co-workers standing around in silence.
I seriously want to work as a one-man janitor but I never see anything listed in my local job websites nor do I know which companies I should apply to.
>its flipping burgers
Its not undercooking or burning them
Its meeting a high volume of demand
Its properly rotating stock
Its cleaning the grill at the end of the night
Its working in an extremely hot environment
Its working in a stressful demanding environment
>I have never worked and have my energy and sould drained working in fast food
There's a reason people do things like in >>24071846
>Getting called in early so people can leave early
>No one bothers showing up sometimes
When they do that they're actually hoping to get fired. Also that's the reason most fast food workers will be buzzed with narcotics or alcohol during a shift, it helps pass the time and take away the pain of having to work there.
Kinda. It's hard, and you have to deal with people and their problems, it's not like any store where someone buys buillshit and moves on, they come here, ask you about a lot of shit, they tell you their problems and even ask your for advice about unrelated shit. People think you're their fucking psychologist.
Somehow I managed to stay for a fucking year, but that job was too overwhelming for a robot
Bread. I worked at a not-Subway sandwich place. They advertised that their bread was "baked fresh everyday!" and that was such a huge lie. Literally everyday we would either intentionally use last night's bread, left on the bread rack and not frozen or anything, to make catering orders at like 8 in the morning 3 hours before the store was actually opened or have to take out frozen bread from unmarked bags in the middle of the day because we'd run out of bread for the afternoon/evening shift. Then the evening shift would always have too much bread at night and leave it out overnight and repeat the cycle.
Oh and we'd make salads maybe like once a week.
This was me at BK for the month I worked there. I get mad every time I think about it.
This is why you don't work in a warehouse anon. I read the same thing for most of those jobs.
You shut your bitch mouth. Pharmacy techs are the most entitled, spoiled "retail" workers I ever saw in my time doing that. They think they're so goddamn great because they got their little community college cert and all of the sudden they're too good to do actual work like making bales or taking out trash. These spoiled fucks are also left alone by management most of the time.
I used to work for this dying pizza chain and it was the first comfy job of all the jobs I've ever had. Hardly anyone ever ordered shit, shit was simple to make, got along with the manager and coworkers where we could just fuck around and cook the stores food for free.
Even smoked during closing and play vidya on the stores tv since it was so dead, The only time I ever got along with coworkers.
>Getting called in early so people can leave early
Oh no I meant that I would be the one guy to be called in early for the morning shift besides the manager, and the other people working the day shift would work like 3-4 hours and get a nice lunch break, and then when it was my time to leave at 5 I would usually get a phone call saying "hey uh bro imma be late a bit aight?" and them showing up 45 minutes late or "hey uh bro I have a thing I can't come in bye" and I'd end up working 12+ hour shifts.
I couldn't even sleep in on weekends either because I'd constantly get phone calls that "so and so is not feeling well (he or she is hungover from being a Friday/Saturday night normie) and can't come in" at like 9 am.
I'm actually sort of grateful that the new piece of shit owners fired me, working at McDonalds would actually be a step up now.
>Normie: Don't worry, anon. We're all supportive here! If you make a mistake, just try it again. If you have any questions, don't by afraid to ask!
>Robot: Oh normie, so sorry to bother you, I'm not quite sure how t...
>Normie: **sigh** (passive aggression pouring forth)
Left over bread is dicey, especially if they weren't storing it any way.
Parbaked bread is perfectly fine. It is a bit of a lie but yes it is as fresh as if it came straight from the baker.
>make salads once a week
What do you mean subway make to order
>avoid dealing with people
Security jobs are good for that.
Also, if you have one near you amazon warehouses will hire anybody and barely speak to you if you get the work done fast enough.
Rethuglicans hate veterans benefits too, especially for sissy mental disorder they think everyone's making up because they believe everyone's to make a buck at everyone else's expense through deception and fraud
>when will they learn
Learn what? How to get parents to leech off of? How to turn brown so I can move to Sweden?
Ha, I have a linesman who was like this for a long time. It took him a good 6 months to break out of it. I was the sous chef at the time. I tried all manner of coaching to no avail. Finally I would position myself next to whatever station he was on or if it was a 2 person station I would work with him. I would remain calm and crank,shit out through rush with him and just small talk and help him break down his station. After a solid month of that he began to loosen up. I was able to slowly space myself from him and he was able to function without my help.
I'm the exe. Chef now he has made his way as one of my sous. Out of all of the restaurants I consider him to be top 3 sous chef.
He actually said to me one night "I actually was a dishwasher like you but then all the chefs quit one day so the owner taught me the menu and now here I am overworked and underpaid"
I left soon after that
i work at Mcdonalds on the Las Vegas strip and we are definitely underpaid.
the other city block Mcdonalds, they are shit, fuck them unless they are the busiest locations in the city, they don't got SHIT on tourist spots.
in my job you don't ever get to stop moving, you get two 10 minute breaks and if you take too long the customer and the manger both give you a hard time at the same time.
80% of the customers don't speak english, 20% of the customers are heavily intoxicated and/or hookers (its Las Vegas).
the customer can treat you any way they feel like and i've even been disrespected by muslin and indian kids and i've heard anti-american slurs directed at us.
try hearing anti-american slurs while keeping your cool. we are underpaid.
idk about Subway, but again our store was all high and might about how everything was so fucking fresh especially the salads.
The way we made them was pretty awful as well. We'd get entire heads of Romaine lettuce that would already be half-rotten by the time we got to using them and we were supposed to have one of those lettuce-spinning things that you use to dry off lettuce after you rinse it, but the one we had was broken for about... 7 years... so every thing of salad that we made once a week was filled with like an inch or two of water and just sat there.
I used to think that working at that local sandwich/fast food place was the right thing because muh globalization and we got to look out for the local businesses but jesus man Subway and McDonalds are a step up for both the customers and employees.
I worked at a warehouse for one day before quitting. It was the single worst experience ever, and would rather not have a job then have one but at that place. It was severly depressing. Especially when the manager was some batshit crazy 50 year old women that would harass and yell at you for not taking up the amount of hours she'd give to you.
Security sucks. Everyone always has a grudge against you and lets you know it, it's a safe way for pathetic people to let out their rage on an authoritative figure while being safe because it's not a cop. Also shit pay and no respect.
This. I work for Amazon right now, and they'll hire anyone as long as you do your job. It's hard as fuck, especially right now during peak season, but generally you're left alone outside of the gay but entirely necessary stretch sessions.
What were you hours? My shifts were 11 hours a day from 3pm to 2am. Mon-Thursday. It was for a sporting goods store. I've never wanted to just end my life then when I was working there.
>tfw truck driver
>5 minutes is the most I have to spend with someone
>10h a day on my own with chill music
>Get to play vidya when I'm taking a break
>Eat nice meal mom made because she won't be seeing me in days
With coworkers right? That's stupid as fuck. I've had many jobs and I never talked with anyone. Just did my work right and never bitched.
That's one thing I hate about jobs, people love to complain and talk about themselves a lot.
So what are the best-to-worst robot-friendly jobs?
>Stocking at a store or supemarket,bonus points for night shifts
>Dishwasher/line cook/prep at restaurants
>Working the drive-thru and cash register in fast food
my mom was pushing me to get a job in telemarketing through like the son of her friend, but I already feel like a piece of shit without having to scam old people during their supper time.
There are gas stations every 30min/1h depending on the country and in some roads you can just park, take a piss and keep going because barely anyone is going through there,
I've never seen a truck with it's own toilet.

Yeah, the place and job I worked was alright. Different places are likely run differently, and maybe pickers have it worse.
The 13$/hour and overtime were what made it worth it for me.
And if it's really bad quitting is always an option.
I was just okay with the work, and it paid enough money to be tolerable. At the time I got it I was just desperate for work after being a 20 year old with 0 work history.

Why are you guys so bad at life lmao?
I wasn't especially talkative that afternoon because it was becoming a habit that I would have to come in up to an hour earlier for evening shifts because the other two guys on larder would get so little prep done
So I'd get in early and get shit done for that evening and then in the quiet time when I officially started get stuff done for the next day
(Always do what first what you need first bitches)
So pardon me if I was mr snappy mcchatty
It was $11.25 an hour and I was put on a 60 day probation period where I would get a $75 raise upon passing. Made it to about 45 days before just not showing up anymore.
The work dealt with clothing, shoes, and random sporting goods. You have your own area and with empty boxes where you place a certain amount of items and have tohit a button so it registers what amount goes where. You also have to do a certain amount within a time frame which is very stressful. I didn't get along with coworkers either which made it even more shitty.
Yeah, that's literally it. All the workers get with their respective managers every morning and after lunch and do a series of stretches. After lunch we also review safety guidelines (Amazon has a serious hardon for safety in their warehouses) and people can share their personal "success stories". If someone doesn't volunteer they WILL call on people.
The entire thing is gay as hell but you absolutely need to stretch regularly if you're gonna be working in one of their warehouses. They expect you to be on your feet for the entire ten hour shift, only stopping on breaks. There are no chairs or benches in the warehouse outside the break rooms, and if they catch you sitting on the floor you will be reprimanded. The average order picker walks about twelve miles a day at these warehouses.
That's just being a good chef. There are all kinds of linesmen you just have to be patient firm and fair.
Really good chefs have very little turn over b/c they can help others grow and adapt to the environment.
the kids were from a 3rd world where they don't encourage manners, thats why they all rape and kill each other
i hear anti-American slurs from adults, not so much kids.
everything you hear about foreigners is true.
>so I suppose you haven't done the mayo huh? Just let that for tomorrow huh?
>what else huh? I suppose you haven't done the salsa huh left that too?
>negra too left for tomorrow right? Huh?
>No chef. I did the mayo yesterday and the negra and sala this morning and afternoon
>don't talk back to me anon I have 20 years experience
Or the afternoons when the sous chef or CDPs would bug out dead on 4pm, not clean up or restock the pass, chef would come in to run the evening shift, find his section a mess, get angry, and I working next to him have to cop his bad mood
Honestly, find a job at a restaurant.
Work as a line cook and you can probably learn how to cook your own meals.
Seriously, you don't really learn any useful life skills from working at retail save for controlling your temper when dealing with dumbfuckers
i worked at the home depot briefly, it was awful.
i had to do some training but the computers didnt work so they just sent me out into the store. i had no idea what the fuck i was doing or where anything was because the managers were missing and nobody gave me the initial walkthrough. my supervisor didnt know they had even hired me for his department. i "lost too many sales" because i couldnt explain much to old ladies and that was the end of that.
This. I couldn't even get hired at a fucking dollar tree when I started working. I had to whore myself to temp agencies to even find a job because they'll hire anyone and honestly if you speak English you're already more qualified than half the spics and niggers who come in there looking for a job. I started out folding boxes in a fucking warehouse and I loved the job but my manager was an asshole and didn't like me because I didn't go in for the overtime he told me I didn't have to fucking come in for.
>tfw you will never be able to work a local Video store or even a Blockbuster which involves mostly just hanging out and watching movies on like 8 TVs hanging off the ceiling and walls, and then recommending obscure movies to people who come in regularly and you know their movie taste by heart
Why type of warehouse job is it? If its amazon or fedex usually you'll get thrown into what area needs you the most. I'm skinny as fuck and I've worked in some hard areas and it wasnt so bad once you get used to it. Might even get you in shape.
I almost got hired for a dollar tree but they were using all the new hires as people to help remodel the store for the whole week at 6am to 12pm in the winter. We were mostly outside a lot. You had to complete the week in order to get hired. I quit after the second day.
>work in restaurant that would get packed with 2 hours reservation times from Friday to Sunday
>job involved me putting toppings on / making plates presentable before they're brought to customers
>was always quiet and awkward as fuck

>couldn't muster up the commanding presence to raise my voice
>when I did no one heard me or wasn't paying attention
>meanwhile 10 visible trays of food I finished are stretched out taking up 15 feet of my station getting cold
>this happened all the time. I actually didn't exactly hate the work either, was very past paced and busy, I just sucked too hard dealing with most coworkers and all the other kitchen bros knew I was a big beta too but didn't give me too much shit
I probably wouldn't have lasted as long as I did there if this lesbian chick that worked a grill by my station didn't do the yelling for me
>tfw u work in walmart at the electronics section
job is easy af but doing cash is stressful due to me being a huge fuck up. The job mostly consists of stocking light shit on the shelves like vidya or cables and talking to computer illeterate customers. It is not bad but the shifts can drag if the store is dead and there is nothing to do.
I know that feel bro. I'm a pretty tall, broad guy and I just can't fucking yell. Every time I think I am nobody hears me. I think it's because my parents used to yell at each other a lot when I was a kid. Even now I get jumpy and angry when people raise their voice around me. I can't stand it.
Believe it or not that is a common hang up that line cooks have. There are ways to guide them through it.
Another common hang up is asking for the server to clarify an order or stopping the chef to ask them somthing.
I know how you feel. I worked for a sub shop in a busy downtown area and was the one who had to yell names and give their food to people during lunch hour. Most embarrassing and depressing moment of working a job.
oh christ there's a home depot right down the road from where I live and my mom is always screaming at me to get a job there

They won't let you listen to music most of the time. I've worked in Amazon warehouses twice now and electronics on the warehouse floor are strictly prohibited, cell phones included. You will get fired for having your phone on the warehouse floor. Dunno about any other companies but they're probably the same. Earbuds are a safety hazard since you can't hear what's going on around you either, but they give out free earplugs funnily enough.
Working at a movie theater isn't so bad if you don't have trouble dealing with people. It's pretty easy, you even get to watch free movies on breaks or whenever. You could ask to be the one who cleans the theater if you don't wanna deal with being a cashier.
It's twelve dollars an hour with benefits. I work there as a temp atm but I'll probably be hired for real after the holiday season. If you're a temp you get no benefits and the company will pass you over for a real employee for anything. Actual employees get bumped up to 13.50/hr after a few months and get shares in the company, and they'll even pay for you to go to college.
It really is brutal though. I can barely walk after my shift is done and I'm hungry all the time at work since I'm constantly burning calories.
they stuck me in garden. i was completely lost. at one point they told me to drive the forklift even though i dont know how and clearly dont have their forklift certification. they got upset when i didnt do it. and never mind the coworkers who would purposely walk away when customers got close. the whole thing was a mess.
I'd literally run out of room to work and prepare more plates / trays because servers would make chitchat instead of running the food. Was in Vietnam all night on Friday and Saturday
Holy shit they asked you to get on the forklift with no certification? That's a huge safety code violation. You were smart to say no - your health is mpre important than any job.
Did they drug test you?
I knew a friend who worked in the same type of DIY-bullshit sotre as Home Depot and you had to take a piss test as part of the interview & evaluation - but then everyone who worked there were complete stoners. I guess they just stopped giving a shit once people were hired.
How the hell did the servers get away with that? I would tear a server a new hole for letting food die so they can chat.
FOH manager should have been on that shit immediately too.
I worked at a Mcdonalds for almost 2 years, one right off the interstate in an expanding part of Florida and while I only did 15-20 hours per week, the job does not deserve $15 per hour. Maybe like the $9 they are getting now is fair imo.
Oh shit here's a fun one. How many of you line cooks can hear the ticket printer noise in any restaurant or hear that shit in your sleep.
Did you ever nick name it?
Back when I was a sous we called it skynet
>>quitting after one day
>You people are the worst
For what reason?
I did 2 months, but I wouldn't get pissed at someone doing a day.
If anything it's nice that a few working people have standards as opposed to slaving away for whatever scraps are thrown to you.
God I hate these 'my job is serious business' fuckers. Worked as a nightshift store clerk for a while and my day change was some 40+ years old faggot who thought selling people meat is as complex as building space rockets, so he criticized me for every little fuck up.
Damn it felt good to mess up EVERYTHING on my last shift.
the part i still dont understand is how they actually got visibly angry when i didnt want to break THEIR rules with them
they did, it was part of the initial interviews. had to go to a small doctors office and hand my pee to a cute nurse.

If I fail out of college or can't get a job as a programmer because I suck I will probably just an hero. I don't think I can handle working retail or fast food or anything like that for a living.
I like, really hyped myself up for it, and then finally when it happened I just stuck my cannon-hard dick through the donut hole (it was a whole-wheat honey-glazed just FYI) and that was it. I just had a donut hanging on to my boner. It tried grabbing it with my hand to make it tighter and humped it a few times but it just broke apart, so I just got mad and ended up jerking with honey-glaze on my hand & dick.
I should've instead stacked a whole pile of donuts on my dick, like those ring-toss carnival games.
Same job. I left during one of my shifts and had a pretty awkward with all my mangers when i went to pick my last paycheck. They were all typical sport chads.
Joking about that I must not like them and shit.
I've thought about this, but what are some of the negative aspects of it? For one thing I'd be worried about fucking killing someone driving that thing, especially in the winter. or getting stuck in the middle of an awkward intersection, backing up quickly, etc.
It's not required, it's just what they say to weed out the people who aren't ambitious. I got a nice, professional job with almost zero experience in it just because I applied and was able to sell myself. I was totally under qualified for the position, but I've learned a lot.
Don't let "2 years minimum experience..." Put you off from applying for a job

seriously, fuck you and your salad. Your dumb ass swears like ordering at BK is a healthy choice to begin with, stop kidding yourself.
>people that want "off the broiler" shit
P.S. you're getting the same meat as everyone else :^)
>people that order their burgers on specific breads
>people that want to be special snowflakes and literally "have it their way"
Luckily I didn't encounter any serious hazing during my service, my butt also remained virginal, guess because I served closely to the capital. Shit does get bad in bumfuck regions
Well, for starters, the licence is not cheap at all.
It's not easy to drive, semi-trailers are scary, not gonna lie, you need balls to drive that shit for the first time.
You need like 2 years of experience and international experience for almost every company
You'll feel lonely eventually, and sad. You have a lot of time to think and that's not always good.
Once you find a job, you barely have any free time, so forget about movies everyday, long vidya, friends if you have any, and a lot of shit. I play a lot on my psvita though, but I haven't played MGS V yet and it's killing me.
>people who say that they want the Specific Trio of Advertised Items on Sale but instead replace half the things and get a bunch of extra shit and then are like "how come I bought more things and it costs more money now?!?!"
I want to work in a poplar fast food place, but the possibility of working the drive-through really triggers my autism.
When my mom would take me to Burger King when I was a kid, she'd ALWAYS specify them to make the burgers "medium well done". Looking back I get a laugh thinking about the cook saying "is this bitch serious?" and just preparing it the same way he prepared all 500 other burgers that day
All I'm saying is I'd rather have a guy like that quit than have to put up with his useless ass if he stayed. Useless employees are worse than quitters because at least a quitter has the decency to leave and stop shitting up the place.
there was this one time these guys wanted A1 Sauce on their Whopper and were angry because it costed them like 20 cents extra.
Dude drives away from drive thru angry and yelling at us like "fucking cheap shits"
I hate people
Exactly. Only when it's slow and the people are in the front do they actually check.
This middle aged fuck one time wanted the burgers "off the broiler and well done" for his Bacon Cheesburgers and was watching me the whole time as I made them.
It's like get off my back, it's just a burger. Eat the damn thing.
reminds me of this random lady who came up to this pizza place inside of a subway station where they just re-heat pre-cooked pizzas inside of an oven and she was just like IS THIS FRESH DO YOU HAVE GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS HOW MANY CALORIES ARE THESE ARE YOUR INGREDIENTS LOCALLY-SOURCED and the Chinese/Latino kid was just like "eh I put pizza oven yes"
Just need to find one of the security gigs that lets you have a baton and taser or OC spray, instead of the lame mall cop shitcunt jobs where you just get to stans there with no powers

Managers and coworkers all know I suck anyway so screw even thinking about putting this on my resume in the future.
I used to work at a Chick fil A and let me tell you it sucked. They had to general areas to work in "front line" which is basically just any position past the kitchen door and "kitchen" which is self explanatory. I worked front line. I am really uncoordinated and really slow at learning and they had me working on a cash register, the drive through register, dining room (which was basically wiping tables, cleaning the floor EXTREMELY thoroughly, cleaning the playground indoors, and cleaning both restrooms all while keeping condiment stand stocked.), or worst of all, "headset". Headset was a nightmare for anyone who has trouble multitasking and talking while doing actions. You had to talk to a customer, take their order on a register screen, and make the drinks associated with that order as you are talking and hitting buttons also, no stopping in between orders even if some fucker has a carload of kids wanting every flavor of milkshake and ice cream under the sun (that takes much more time to make because it's a multi step process) so I basically shut down the first time they put me there and I mean stopped cold froze up and dropped a Dr Pepper on the floor. The second time I took some guys order wrong and I seriously thought he was going to jump through the window and skull fuck me so I just got a manager and went to a register, then the third time I kept getting cup sizes wrong (cfa has like 5 different cups) so the managers just didn't put me on headset until like 6 months later but by then I was fed up and got a job at a Winn Dixie stocking shelves until 11pm (literally didn't have to say anything to anyone except "it's on aisle whatever") moral of the story, never, ever work in FAST food if you're a slow uncoordinated learner.
I work at a McDicks and those little things piss me of as well.
I work at the register and it pisses me off when people say they want a milkshake or something else with their combo meal instead of the soda after they already ordered the meal. Also people not specifying what sauce they want with their nuggets and people who don't talk loud enough.
It's always older people who treat workers like shit from what I've seen. Most younger people are actually pretty respectful.
Who the fuck actually asks for their whopper to be cooked to exact specifications though? It's literally mass produced food. Just pay the five and some change for it and fucking eat it.
IF you can get good sleep during the day, it's great if you're a night person who already plays vidya or frogposts until 4am each day regardless.
but if you have noisy sibilings/roommates/neighbors/parents or pets that will wake you up, it's not a great idea.
Yeah we got blockbusters where I live in the vicinity is one 10 mins walk from my house 15 mins drive 20 mins drive there are quite a few in my state soon but I haven't bothered applying for a job at any of them cause I doubt I'd get hired since the current staff probably don't get hours as it is.
ooh I hate that shit. When you in a fastfood place and the old dude is staring down the cook and peaking over the counter and shit while monitoring his shitty pile of grease is being prepared for his massive 3 dollar investment. Fucking boomers
>Back in my day us fast food workers prepared only the finest food!
>Bought a house, car and raised his family off the mcdonalds paycheck
>eating at a restaurant
>hear that BTT BTT BTT BTT BTT BTT
Oh yeah, we had to say "my pleasure" or else every fucker in a red shirt would crane their neck and flip the fuck out because you said "you're welcome" or "no problem" everytime i said my pleasure I felt like a fucking dildo.
I feel this, anon. I guess since were sharing stories and all, I may as well share one from my work.

Now I work at an oil change place, I know nothing about cars but the job is easy and the latest I can work is until 7 so it's alright. Pay sucks though.
As long as they didn't have to deal with too many customers I assume well enough. Most of the people ITT just want to keep their heads down and do their jobs so if you get a room full of them they'd probably work well enough with the right manager and not someone who will berate someone for not learning something right away.
I hear that shit in my sleep too lol
Yes to both of those things
Taxes are rape here like you wouldn't believe, also everything is ridiculously expensive, like our high wages don't cover it, a normal house is a million dollars minimum unless you want to live out in the middle of nowhere
Because they're by order. Nobody really orders them, so there's no point in making a big batch like the regular ones.
So it means I have to stop making the other orders and go into the fridge for some and fry them. really only gets me mad at peak hours desu.
I wish I worked at McDonald's instead, I feel like I'm a cheap imitation. Except I get Onion Rings :^)
When I worked register, it's like yeah ok you can switch it out fine..
What gets me mad is that they try to change their order once they've been charged.. that's like, just suck it up.
Then I have to get my manager and fix that shit..
Oh and when you charge them for the money and they're like "Oh, here's the X cents, so you can just give me bills" it's like no I charged you, I can't change it now..
Yeah, like the other anon said. it's mass produced.. not of the fryer anymore.
And it's true, some older people seem more entitled than others.
Some lady on drive thru today ordered her fish sandwiches on the big whopper bun. Like the bun matters, the meat is still the same size made for the other bread...
>Get paid shit, but we also have a tip jar
>owner installs a charity box next to out tip jar without ever asking or telling us
>also he "encourages" us to to give our tip money to the charity.
I was saltier than the meat we served.
I've been on the register alone with nobody to bag orders for me or get fries/drinks for me with a line almost out the door.
If it happens again I'm just going to walk out and quit.
I get along with everyone, there's even a kinda qt hitting on me, but I'm too much beta and she's WAY too normie to even worth a try. I just hide my powerlevel very good and they think I have a social life.
I worked at a local fast food place where we basically worked on the honour system and nobody had any fucking honor but me and like two other people.
We were supposed to show up like 5-10 minutes before our shift, so by the time the shift started on the hour we'd already be dressed and ready to go. instead people would show up like 10 past the hour and dick around on their phones for another 10 minutes and talk with other 16 year olds assholes in the back, and still sign in on time - and also leave early & sign out for later.
I would do the opposite, start to work early before my shift started and work after I had signed out as well. huuuuuge mistake.
I hate that shit
>shift begins at 10
>but you gotta be early for 5-minute briefing
>that actually begins at 9:40
>break is 1 hour but administrator starts glaring at me after 40 minutes like I raped his wife
I got one job through a friend from school, which was a huge mistake because I couldn't be like "hey can you help me and do your job" without him being like "DUDE CHILL OUT BRO REMEMBER THAT TIME I BOUGHT YOU A SLURPEE" but for the most part I got along great with most people on a superficial level. I'm great at bullshit small talk as slong as it doesn't involve cars or sports.
Quite a few of them I also hung out with outside of work either to go to bars or to smoke a joint in the parking lot, and a couple of them I added on Steam. I even fucked one girl, got rejected by like three.
You're not supposed to at Amazon. If your break starts at 3:00 for example, you stop working at three and go on break. Of course they also count the time it takes to walk across the entire fucking warehouse to get to the break room and then back to work after as your break too, so it's really a ten minute break, not fifteen.
If you start work at a certain time, you have to be clocked in, ready to go, at that time. Being in the building doesn't count.
You're also expected to be working right up til your shift ends. No finishing early and going to the punch machine to punch out at exactly on time.

Just left a restaurant chain job after 2 weeks. Had some gay fuckboy literally ride my ass for not studying procedures for the job.
I mean I am pretty robot, so I get I come off as an asshole and rude, but I want to go to work just to work, not to be patronized by a gay minimum wage worker who takes his job way too seriously after not being promoted for 3 years.
Gave me a real good realization that I don't want to be like this after 3 years.
Anyone who takes a minimum wage job seriously is trash desu senpai
I miss the black unigorms. The mustard/snot green ones are fucking shit.

I work an aquarium service tech. I basiclly sucba dive in a very rich mans 5000 gallon reef aquarium clean it and mantain when it comes up. I mostly hang with the butler who is this sterotypical yet awsome Brit guy and this security guard who owns a gun ship nearby. I like job since it's $22hr and basiclly revolves me doing my hobby which is maintaining saltwater reef tanks. I also don't have any immediate bosses since the service company I work for is 6 states away. I just submit my hours and water testing logs. Only negative is short hours on this gig.
Here's an inside photo of one tank I deal with.

You must've worked at a shitty retail place then. There's always something to do.

I quit because it was a shit job but I didn't realize how dependant I was on that stolen money until the steady cash flow was gone. 10/10 though would do again.

I see those people all the time stocking Pepsi and Coke at the Winn Dixie I work at. They always look like the .jpg you had. Seriously. Bloodshot eyes, bags under their eyes, and 5 o clock shadow. Also when I made a little small talk with one of them, they sounded like they wanted me to drop a very heavy box on their head and end it for them.
I usually have a Jack and Coke after my shift at the warehouse. Really helps me unwind after walking all day trying to keep up with their fucking timers.
>you have 10 seconds remaining to pick this order
>the order's literally on the other side of the fucking warehouse
>nobody needs a shoe horn this badly
Kek I work for a diplomat that's all I can say. He's pretty cool too, and his kids are alright too when they are around. I just can't be specific becuase it's a privacy issue and I respect that.
It's fun teaching his kids about coral and fish. I setup a seprate 10gall glo fish tank in the play room and they got a kick out of the fact they were genetically engineered to glow under blacklight.
I get along with everyone, as soon as I get enough time around people I'm very personable. But those first 2 weeks of me not knowing someone, its been described to me like I want to murder you and your entire family for existing on this planet.

I hear that job is terrible. Can you imagine playing the same game over and over again with only subtle changes like a texture or how high you can jump? Then writing a report on it?
I already did. No way I'm going back now. I'm just waiting to tell my parents in dropping out now.
Yeah, everyone I worked with would be better off if they quit or dropped a pallet of Pepsi on themselves.
Ctrl+F: Bar / Glassie
Robots you NEED to get into bar work, this shit is the fucking best. In no other profession can you be a dick as long as you get your work done. I'm a glassie (picks up glasses and washes them) literally the best job I've had out of fast food and customer service/sales/retail based roles. Plus all your coworkers are broken in some way too and you can bro down pretty hard. AND you get strong from running around carrying a huge rack of glass above your head. Just go down to any bar during the day and ask if they can take your number/resume to call on you to glassie for them when it gets busy. Make yourself available weekends
>30 years old
>NEET for 2 years

I'm going to have to take orders from a 19 year old aren't I?
I've worked at a gas station and overall it was a pretty relaxed experience, on the other hand it got robbed like 3 different times while I was employed, although I was never on the clock when it happened. Lots of dead hours where you have nothing to do, some busy hours where you want people to physically combust, and small little breaks where you make idle chit chat with people. And you'll meet every person under the sun, good people, bad people, people who will physically threaten, people who verbally threaten you, people who buy lotto tickets and give you one as thanks. All kinds man.
I've read a few stories game testers have put out about their jobs and it's fucking torture. Bug reports get ignored to meet deadlines or because you bruised a dev's ego by pointing it out, everyone in the company treats you like shit because you're basically nobody, and you barely even get to play the game. You stress test for bugs. Some guy who was testing one of the newer Halos literally spent over twenty hours shooting every gun in the game at the moon in a multiplayer map to test if the game would crash.
Working as an actual bartender would seems like the robot's worst nightmare though
>listening to loud shit music non-stop while entertaining Chads and Staceys
>either that or having to make small-talk with depressed 50 year old alcoholics

Oh shit, sorry I don't come in with "BOY HOW IS EVERYBODY I'M SURE SWELL I CAN'T WAIT TO FLIP BURGERS AND GET YELLED AT!"
Sometimes I feel like cutting the regulator on my scuba tank when I'm inside the aquarium and just slowly fade out of conciousnes to end it.
But then I remember if I do, the family would come home to see a dead neckbeard belly up I'm their aquarium slowly being eaten up by hermit crabs and isopods.
Everyone who works at the bar with you hates the music too. But the thing is that being in that environment behind the bar puts you in control in a sense. It's very liberating.
Even if not, it's a good training ground since as the bartender you are in the position of power over the customer. They WANT your attention.
- Moms. Moms are the worst. I think there's some sort of post-pregnancy disease that infects Moms' brains that makes them unable to understand what you said the first time you said it. Also, Moms LOVE to have their little social cliques come into the restaurant all at once, and usually they bring a pack of kids with them as well. The kids have one goal and that's to destroy everything in your store while screaming.
- Snobs. Especially if its a fast-food place. We both know embarrassing it is to be here at all, so why be a massive douche and act like you're royalty?
- People who ask numerous questions and change their order multiple times, but don't tip
- People who mumble
- People who cannot read the menu. I've gotten over the fact that most people have no idea what my place serves beyond your usual advertised shit. That's fine. But I've had people ask me about things that are readily and easily displayed up on the menu. About items that are very clearly displayed. And it's never anything particular, or something that would actually require a bit of asking, but it's always "do you have that" or "I don't see it". Frustrating
- Most Regulars. Usually they know exactly what they want, have the correct amount of money, and are amiable.
- People who have worked fast food before. I'm sure every fastfoodbot in this thread has learned how to order quickly, efficiently, and politely just by working at a shit job like this. If you're a fastfoodbot and you still order like a fucking idiot then kill yourself desu
Does anyone know of anyone who successfully made it to corporate from line cook or cashier? I personally don't, the closest I've heard of is my store manager who started bagging like 30 years ago and got promoted through pity every 8 or so years

I litterily just applied on indeed from a recommendation from my dad who found the ad. I used to work as a lifeguard/pool maintenance and I so happen to have a hobby of reef tanks and scuba cert. They needed someone with all three.
The job is good but it really is a robot, college job I only work about 16 hours a week mostly.
I've been fired (technically "let go" but same fucking thing) or quit that day.
I put in a one-week notice at Goodwill. Only scheduled for weekends because I lied, and I didn't even show up on that last Saturday.

And yes, the chili has the meat that we didn't use in time in it.
>tfw you will never be a qt shortstack working at a family restaurant
Nah. You'd have to be massively overqualified in your position to get promoted to corporate. It's in any company's best interest to keep the hardworking, good managers exactly where they are.
A guy I knew from an old job told me he went from stocker to district manager in about 2 and a half years. He was a cool guy. Chill as fuck, and I'm certain he got stoned at least twice a week.
He was supposed to be the boss of the store I worked at but some military faggot took his place and fired me after a month.
"yes massa, thank you massa"
"yes mr manager sir, right away"
I have no idea how that got messed up on the reply quote.
Nothing too crazy, one time a 2horse power pump blew in my face and it turned the entire room into water park style splash house in like 2 seconds.
I was screaming at the butler to turn off the breaker as he was in the room when it happened.
It's a pretty relaxed place. Not really an incident but the homeowner one time invited me to basiclly chill and have a drink with him.
>>that guy that came regularly during non-rush and ordered 2 6 piece spicy nuggets with Honey Mustard fresh nuggets (good guy since he came during non-rush)
That could be me. I usually just get that alone or with a frosty.
>tfw no job is too low for me in my pharmacy

Fuck pharmacists who are above "tech work," and fuck pharmacy techs who are above any kind of work that needs to get done in the pharmacy. I fucking fire that attitude.

I quit during rush.
Overnight security guard here, my cunt boss gave me 3 days off in a row even though I asked her to give me split days off and I end up reversing my sleep schedule when I'm off to sleeping at night again no matter what I do, so I go two or three days with no sleep once I go back to work. I haven't fallen asleep on post in 5 months though, and even then it was intentional.
Fat bitchy manager yelled at me for going behind the counter to get extra supplies for the condiment stand so I asked her how her 20,000 in student debt was going. she recently graduated college with a bachelors in communications and she's putting it to use at Chick fil fucking A
I used to work with this guy who seemed pretty friendly and talkative at first, but quickly revealed himself to be a lazy psychopath who wandered around the store, made strange noises, came to work blazed out of his mind, etc etc.
Hated that dude.
The veggie burgers at BK are delicious
I worked there in high school, and we used to turn off the lights on the big sign out in front of the store at night to make it look like we were closed
What's the longest shift you wagekeks have done? My longest was 29 but I did a few ~20s as well. Those were at my last job stacking pallets at a grocery store, I like manual labor and my boss was pretty cool so I told him I didn't want to take breaks because they're fucking boring and I'd rather have the money so he let me not take them.
The 29 hrs were because the stockroom was a fucking mess full of shit people had ordered too much of stacked on 100 different pallets wherever they could fit and none higher than waist-level; I had to consolidate them all into less pallets, organize them, and find out what could be gotten rid of with no help because my coworkers were lazy shits. Didn't finish so I took 12 hours off, then worked 5 16 hour shifts over the next week and walked out at the end of the last because coworkers were lazy shits.
Doing security now, staying awake for a shift longer than 12 hours is almost impossible but I've done a bunch of 16s and did a 20 once because I thought my dumb nigger boss would give me a promotion for it and the bastard didn't.
Protip: go to college or be a NEET. There is no inbetween.
>apply for dozens of jobs
>only get one interview
>completely sperg out
>they try and make me do a trial run at the drive through window
>i don't have appropriate shoes to enter the back
that was 4 years ago and i've been NEETing ever since
I pulled a 37 hour on a security job once. There were a few blow outs. I worked from 7am to 8pm the next night.
My boss paid me OT for the entire shift even though technically 16 hours of it was my standard hours.
Basically a whole weeks money in two days.
>DO YOU HAVE GLUTEN-FREE OPTIONS
Every goddamn time.
I liked the grocery store with the exception of one person but all the good people left and got replaced with white women. Actually, working grocery is pretty goddamned fun if you aren't stuck with high schoolers and have a decent boss. I did all the long shifts just to see how long I could keep working but I was /fit/ then.
My boss had it worse because he was salaried and ended up making about $3/hr with how much he worked. Never take salaried work unless it's +$80k.
This. Movies make the army look like normie central, when really its mostly just cyborgs and robots, with a few failed normies chucked in
Source: Did basic so I could get military engineering gigs
Worked kitchen today at my workplace. All I fucking eat there is junk and other fried fast foods. I felt like fucking garbage tonight because I had a shitload of pizza, tenders, fried pickle chips, fries, mozzarella sticks, and I had a dessert pie that was for crew members. We were fucking swamped today because everyone and their fucking dog wanted like ten pizzas and cheese fries and wings and other shit.
>coworker has a huge chip on her shoulder, nobody fucking likes her because she's a fat old bitch that only works when the head chef is around
>working with her at a station and she's just doing her own thing fucking up orders like a retard misplacing all the order papers
And I also went the fuck off on a chef for calling me names. Also had a manager who was a braindead fucker I could write a book on his fuckups on.
>work all positions
>get $7.65 an hour
after my raise
I get along with just about everyone that I work with, though I imagine a good deal of them think I'm some sort of sperg. There's this one chick who always acts super happy to see me, part of me assumes it's some weird joke that I'm not in on.
Did you sleep on post or nah?
I clock in at 2300 and leave at 0700 and all the hours are counted as whatever day I clocked in on, but generally my relief is late or doesn't show up because they're lazy niggers like the majority of security. On July 4th I got called in to work overtime with holiday pay and my relief didn't show up so I got 16 hours holiday and overtime, $350 in one night plus I did 66 hours the week before, I got $2000 that check, shit was neat
Is it an american thing where you need certification to do anything more complicated than wiping your bum? In canada here I've had jobs where if you had 4 limbs and a heartbeat you could operate forklifts, skid steers, pickers etc just small shit like that nothing like a big excavator or such

I work retail, been at the store for 2 years, still don't know shit. Boss hates me, surprised he has not fired me.
Always find new ways to mess up too that end up disappointing customers or co-workers.
>working from home as a translator

dear god, I hope I never have to deal with an actual workplace
i went my first day of dishwashing the other day, the next day i was suppose to go again but i stayed in bed instead. it;s been 3days since then, should i try pretending to have been sick and ask if they still want me to come in? i mean it wouldnt hurt to ask. it just really sucks trying to hold down a job when youre depressed
I'm sorry to all of you guys who can't put together the job skills needed for things above that shit-tier bullshit. I have worked two restaurant jobs and to me they were both easy...though not fun.
First time was a dishwasher. Fuck that shit, I do not want to get off work and have my hands both burnt and wrinkly.
As a pizza delivery guy though...the only "bad" part was having to do huge runs, and waiting outside college dorms in the winter weather while they took their sweet time and didn't tip.
But seriously, nobody should have a hard time flipping burgers. If you do have a hard time doing that, then you should get medicaid or something :\
I run an industrial plant of sorts, that puts out expensive products on demand at an insane rate.
>people talking to me constantly
>every product is chemistry based, with a million variables, and must be very exact
>a fucked up product costs at least a few thousand dollars

>shit ton of paperwork
I make roughly 20 dollars an hour, but my god the stress drives me to drink, and thus some weight gain.
People at work have begun commenting on it lately.
It's not easy to be in charge, folks.
>People who leave the receipt on the counter
>People who just throw the money on the counter instead of fucking handing it to me (It's usually people over the age of 50 that do this)

>People who don't read signs/price tags or pretend not to read them
>Regulars who already know what they're getting
>Alt girls who always seem to call me "dude" and are generally just super chill
Fuck that desu senpai
I was cutting, packing, and wrapping meat in the butcher room for $7.25, as well as doing produce, register, grocery, frozen, packaged meat, paperwork, bakery, dairy, cart boy, janitorial, and unloading trucks by myself with a shitty handjack, when I realized "fucking christ - I'm just doing the things nobody else wants to do and, after 2 years of watching me do everything that's asked of me, that's now become everything. Where is the meat cutter? I was hired as a cashier, yet the meat cutter makes twice as much as me. Where the fuck is he? Why am I here?"
Kroger, Walmart, Aldi, Costco, etc all pay better than that and will all probably hire you. If you live with your parents then save up money for a month and then quit and start looking for something else but don't look to grocery until your budget's run thin. Overnight jobs as security or hotel reception are dead quiet and pay decent, it's what I'm doing right now and security especially is easy to get into.
Warehouse jobs are alright, depending on where you arel. I work in returns, it's mostly small-ish electronics, just testing and repacking them. Super easy, decent pay, and only like 14 people there, so everyone is really chill
>>Stocking at a store or supemarket,bonus points for night shifts
I do this.
Managers are the scum of the earth and mock/talk shit about you every chance they get. Usually behind your back but sometimes right next to you.
The work is easy but I usualy get like 30 hours. You will NOT get ful time/any promotions if you are young. Im 19 and they have let me know on multiple occasions that I will not get full time.
It takes years to become a manager (ive only been there for six or seven months). Full time usually makes $11 to $14 dollars (like I said, it takes years to get full time positions).
Work is easy. You dont have to say a word all night. I get about $10 an hour. Co workers are literally useless outcast too. Basically failed normies or old people that fucked up.
Its a shit job but its all I got
some simple computer work (excel spreadsheets), making sure the place doesn't burn down, and tell people "no" a lot.
I have been reading this thread for the last hour since I made that post and only been interrupted but 2 pizza guys.
I know you. You live in Wisconsin or something, right? Of course nobody goes there.
How is your pay so high and how can I get a job at a hotel? Currently at $11/hr overnight security so add in the excel thing and I do the same thing as you.
The second you walked out the door you could distinctly feel the ache in every cell of your body, right? It comes on like a wave and you can't stand up straight and you're suddenly delirious and swearing at everything because fucking everything makes you angry that you just had to do that bullshit?
I'm pretty sure that's how everyone would respond but it still feels like a unique experience.
Nah, American. We just happen to have a small, but noticeable, gypsy population in our city.
They haven't pulled anything major just yet, so it's mostly the smaller stuff they do that pisses me off. This includes, but is not limited to:
>Placing large orders just before closing
>Constantly claiming they know the owners in an attempt to make me do some shit for them that I've already told them I'm not allowed to do (Funny story: The only time they've spoken with anyone in a management position where I work was when my boss caught their kids shoplifting and told them to get the fuck out)
>Playing me and my coworkers against each other, usually by saying one of us allowed them to have something for free
Did I say shoplifting? They don't even have the decency to try and do it in secrecy. They'll fucking shoplift en masse. They bring in 5-10 of their brood, who will just start grabbing stuff off the shelves and running out of the store while the head gypsy is busy telling you how he wants his overly complicated sandwich order done.
By now we're all pretty much familiar with their distraction tactics and know how to shut them down when we think one of them is up to something. Fuck, I never actually hated gypsies until I got this job.
>tfw you've failed three line cook interviews in a row
>one of them calls you back and asks you to do prep/dishes
>have a lot of experience doing dishes, so go there and try to impress them to get their hopes up
>head chef comments on my speed
>tfw asking for a meal after a couple of hours, eating it, and ditching when they're not looking
oh god it's the best feeling ever to stiff people like that. motherfuckers think i'm really gonna go back to doing dishes when it says on my resume that i have 1+ years of line experience on my resume.
>needing a resume for shit-tier restaurant work

The arrogance. Thankfully, he was fired a week later for something unrelated.

I think it's because I was a neet for 5 years and I worked an actual wageslave job at which I got fired because I couldn't talk over their horribly connected phones.
I just need people to tell me that I'm valuable.
they be happy for everyone but the employee

I probably already quit 3 or 4 jobs because I felt like I disappointed my co-workers or boss.
I always give 100% but the second I fail to keep that image up I can't face them anymore.
I just want to die. I'm so pathetic.

My boss is a complete autist. He lacks the ability to replace himself in someome else. My frist day I came in and after 3 mins I had to run the entire office. He apologized later on when he noticed I needed to br trained first. An autist with a good heart. He also never answers if you ask hil a question and he drinks 12 cups of coffee
