I've been working at a library with some awesome peiple. Accessibility to information is our mission! So cool.

Here I was thinking wage labor would make me wanna die without fail. I absolutely went into this job with no hope that I'd be ok.

That impression came from my last job and my last boss. And guess what! I just found out he got fired shortly after I left. Fucker. I suspected this would happen. He never seemed to understand that I was single-handedly running the AP/AR machine. Or that I'm fucking smart.

Well, it can get better my dears.

That's good to know.

Bad jobs can definitely poison future jobs. On the other hand, I think I'm just not cut out for manufacturing labor -- those kinds of jobs are consistently bad.

That's very good to hear.

I've often thought about having a job at a stress-free place like a library and how that could be really nice. At least it appears stress-free to me.

My first boss at my first job after college was a pretty toxic person. He was condescending and liked to manipulate and lie. After I left, I found out from a coworker that he lied about me to the whole team and told them all I cussed him out - I didn’t. The coworker who told me that was like a friend to me while I was there - and then chastised me for that. It took 5 years for him to come around and actually want to speak to me again.

I’ve had a few positive work experiences since then, including a manager who I can describe as the most charismatic man I’ve ever met I’m not with that job anymore, but that place was a healing experience. I can safely say and agree things can always get better. I’m happy you found a good work environment -it makes all the difference!

I'd love to work at a library or something. Retail sucked ass, and I wanna try new things. It sucks office jobs require a fancy piece of paper. My first job was at a well known pharmacy chain as a service clerk who was mostly a cashier and stocker.

Haven't worked in a while now, and have tried a few times this year but zero luck.

Another Walgreens/ Rite Aide/ CVS (Long Drugs) survivor?

While it was stressful I do miss my old job as an Admissions Counselor. I worked with a Great Team and for an amazing University System. Good pay, great benefits etc.

The 8am to 5pm grind (realistically 6am to 9pm at times) Salary life was not what I wanted.... Or so I thought. After finishing up Pre Service Training I realized how good I had it. Fresh out of college kids with no experience of any kind fucking suck to work alongside with.


I dont start fully working in my site until February/March of Next year. I am not sure what I am suppose to be doing right now workwise.

Until then jogging/ hobbies/ integration and blowing large amounts of money that I dont have!

Yep, I worked at a Walgreens for 4 years! I hated it and ended up being let go. I liked the job at first, but didn't get paid enough to be a cashier/stocker at all whatsoever.
