    My first job was McDonalds. Hated it with a passion so I quit there in 08. I havent found a job sense then. Job market right now is so fucking shitty. Plus i have school 9 months out of the year and college life hardly has time for a job. i will get one when I am done.

    I used to work at a party rental place, going out and setting up those big white tents and shit, then coming back later to take it all down again. I just quit that job to be a drunk, fish and shoot shit until college starts again in a month :thumbsup:
    I use to hire out those marquees and sometimes go out & help put them up. I liked the setting up part. :thumbsup:

    First job was at a grocery store. Baker's around here, Kroger/Dillon's depending on what part of the country you're in.
    Total shit job.
    Presently, I sell shit on ebay for people, work in a stringed instrumet repair shop, and run my own little shop doing the same out of my house.
    Unfortunately, business for all of the above is shit, so I'm waiting on a handful of places to get back to me.
    The most promising one is in Nashville.
    Hooray moving.

    They drug test at Wendy's now? That used to be the only reason to work at those places. Because, they'd let you come in trashed every day.


    edit: oh yeah, I'm sous chef at an ocean front restaurant. I like it. Been there almost 5 years.

    DaSkipper, BK:

    I work in freelance expedite. To put it plainly I am a trucker with areally really big van instead of a big rig. If you want this job buy yourself a Dodge Sprinter. It doesn't have to be brand new but you can run for more companies if it is. Once you have one pm me and I'll tell you a couple of good companies to get runs from.

    Yea, its bullshit. I'm pretty sure I'll pass but the test results come back monday so I'm nervous as fuck. I did some ritalin and valium about a week before the test but I dont smoke weed and I drank a fuckton of water for like 3 days straight, my piss was about pure water.

    I don't have a job at the moment, but I should probably get one. Not having any money really sucks dick, but so does sitting at home all day doing nothing.

    I'm quite lucky sorta. I work from home.
    Gets a little boring sometimes. When it reaches that stage, I jump in my car and fuck off anywhere but here for a few hours.

    I thought that was considered "diluted" which is not a pass. Don't they make you re-test. Well, I guess as long as you stay clean till you pass one you'll be alright. Good luck.. Oh and don't work the register that shit sucks. You should work the grill and make everyone call you sponge bob.

    Im at least 5 years older than most of you - my first job was at macdonalds, but that was but a small stain on the glorious footnote of my esteemed career.


    I managed to hustle my way into senior management at a carbon trading firm. Its a growth industry and im loving this shit.

    Remember kids - you can do it too!

    ^ How old are you? I don't think you're as old as our more... senior members. It's cool that you can work your way up the ranks in work - one of my friends just started right at the bottom and plans to work his way up the chain, which is a cool idea I think.

    Yeah, especially if you pick the right place. Like this is a college town and there's a street very popular with students for eating/shopping, around six at night it's full of people walking around looking to spend money or who have change from just spending money. There are a lot of bus that just sit on a corner and yell "Change! change!", people are much more likely to give it to a clean looking kid singing and playing guitar with a case open.

    They money isn't great, but i don't do it for that long. I could probably spend all day going to different spots in the town, but, meh. I can easily make $4-5 in a go which is enough for some soup, a loaf of day old bread, two apples, and two pints of beer, which is pretty much my daily diet.

    I was talking to a busker in this small township of mine who said he made roughly $70 in about 2 hrs. It looked like he had that in his case in loose change & small notes.
    He reckoned he can make 250 to 400 hundy in about 4hrs in the city.
    No vocals, just guitar. His talent was ok but not great. Sounds like a good earn and promotes himself.

    Wow! Yeah especially in a city I wouldn't be surprised... My friends and I drive down to NYC every few weekends to get coke and shit, next time I seriously think I'll post up with my guitar in a metro station for a few hours :o

    I reckon the real money would come from getting a few friends together, and forming a street band. It's just like playing a normal band but you do it in the street instead of at proper venues. I think this would attract some attention and probably get some good money, although you have to split it afterwards :(

    You do it by leveraging positions.

    If your in a job and you think you can do what your boss does - go talk to competitors.

    Next Thursday I've got an interview in Nashville for a position in Gibson USA's manufacturing division.
    People WILL pay me to build guitars, goddamnit!
    I swear they will!

    Living the dream bro.....:) I use to chat to a dude @ zoiklet who was supposedly an ex employee of fender. He knew his shit when it came to guitar related stuff. If I needed info on amps, pedals or guitars I'd just purchased. I'd PM him for information.

    I know a few people that play covers at the bars. Mostly classic rock and what not with a mix of more recent material such as new alice but you really dont make a lot unless you are in the right location. Around where I live you cant even come close to making a living off of it but if its what you love to do it is still most definitely a fun way to spend your weekends.

    I might not post in R&R that much, but feel free to shoot me any questions you might have. Been doing this on some scale for 6 years. Though I will admit I have things to learn, i'm quite confident in my abilities.

    When I first moved to the UK and was an illegal imigrant I worked for a pikey.
    The pay was £150 a week, a small fortune in my old country. If I worked 40 hours a week it would have been £3.75 an hour but generally I worked alot more for the same money.
    Fuck doing that now, couldnt even pay my rent on that.
