I work as a waitress at an innkeepers fayre restaurant, and i pretty much hate it. Its really tiring, plus having stupid townie mothers screaming at you cos they cant be bothered to supervise thier kids in the play area is not fun!! plus i work every weekend, often til 1am, so i never see my pals n hardly see my bf. however...........i REALLY need the cash soooo........

    No I don't.
    Don't even get me started
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    :yes:

    I really like it :D I have done my fair share of shite jobs though, everyone does!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Mine is pretty good. Nice office, free parking, and nice people.

    I'd like to do something more interesting (and better paid) though.

    i don't have one at the moment :( but i LOVED what i was doing last summer.

    i was working as a kids courier on a campsite in France. I was running the kids club with another girl my age. so we got paid to sit outside and play in the sand all day and eat chocolate and cakes :D then in the evenings i joined in the campsite entertainment and got to make a prat of myself on the stage! it was great fun :)

    I've worked as a waitress for the last (nearly!) 11 months, and I have to say, I love it! Yeah, okay so the work is hard (yes, harder than it looks!) and the hours are long and unsocialable, but I work with a really nice group of people. I'm the youngest one there (I'm 19 and the second youngest waitress is 31) but we all get on quite well and have a good laugh.

    The restaurant I work in is a privately owned, pretty expensive place, which attracts a lot of different people, from business men to OAPs, and a lot of regulars - after being there 11 months, I know more-or-less all of them, which helps me enjoy the job more cos I know what to say and what not to (there's nothing worse than a stroppy business man!). I'm there four lunchtimes and 1-2 nights a week, so I get to know a lot more than the other waitresses and also get on a lot better with my bosses than the others - they treat me like a daughter! (which is nice)

    Saturday night will be my last night there tho, cos I start a new job on Monday, working for one of the business men (an insurance broker) who comes in for lunch and business meetings all the time! :)

    No.

    And I've only been there two weeks :|

    I'm hoping it'll get better when I lose my 'new girl' status, although I get on pretty well with all the people I work with. Except my manager, I won't go there.

    But yes...the money is ok I guess, and it's all experience....:rolleyes:

    yes i like my job at the moment, working behind a till and get a nice enough wage for myself, does me for now.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    My jobs not bad. I get away with murder and spend hours visiting TheSite ;)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    :no: :no: :no: :no: :no: i have to be nice to people all day, take crap from diva hairdressers, but i get free hair cuts so its not that bad... and its only 6 hours a week wich i guess i can deal with.

    other than that im a full time student and i wish it would hurry up and END cos i hate school:(
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Well I work for myself which has its ups and downs but yes I do like working as a freelance Web designer.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    No i hate it. And i only work 22 1/2 hours a week! Its so shit and arggggh!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    mine is a great pile of shit.

    i do the marketing for a website, but the marketing budget has just been cut and basically covers my salary.

    and the office is an inbred shag-fest :rolleyes:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'm currently working at a wholesale for wool and souvenirs. No worries if I got bad hair days as I'm behind the scenes from nine to five. :lol: Pays fine, and the staff is quite young (minus the boss). And there's a cute guy. :D

    I quite like it, although it's a rather brainless job. End up making up weird short stories in my mind, and re-play them over and over again. lmao, I'm sad. :D
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I hate my job. It's temping at a financial company..computery stuff. And its the most boringgg job in the world. I'm meant to do it for 6 months but I'm gonna leave after 3. It's soo bad.
    The office is crap, some of the people are ok, but theres not exactly many opportunities to socialise. Plus I'm the youngest there by at least 6 years but blagged myself the job by faking a load of computer qualifications I don't have.

    But hey it's only a gap year job to save some money for travelling so I shouldn't complain. Just feel sorry for people who have a full-time job like that. It also sucks cos I have to drive 45mins into work and 45mins back every day and pay £3.50 a day parking :(

    It's my first day at work tomorrow, and I'm praying I'll like it! It's just an office job, but it's my first 9-5 mon-fri job, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

    Oh, me too! :)
    I'm gonna miss my old job (waitressing, see my earlier post) but I'll be back there, working weekends at Xmas! :rolleyes:

    Good luck with your new job! :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    good luck to you too!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I used to. It's a fucking sham now. :|
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'm hating mine right now. I work at a v busy convenience store, and every shift I am doing, I am put on the till while everyone else gets to have the cushy job of putting stock out. All I hear is them laughing and chatting to eachother, whilst I am always all alone on that horrid till with the rude customers who never seem to go away. I'm a doormat. I'm being paid £3.60 an hour.

    :(
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Hate it.
    I do Furniture removals, it's my dads business.
    It wrecks my back all the time, I feel ill a lot due to my back always aching when standing up, the pain goes down my groin and it puts my stomach out sometimes if it's bad enough. :(
    I really need a job which doesn't involve lifting as I think I'm going to get a lot worse than a bad back if I continue like this. :(
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I hope you've seen a GP about this and you make sure you lift things according to proper health and safety recommendations? If you're doing yourself that much damage you should change job.

    I waitress at two places and I'm reallying beginning to dislike them. The hours are unsociable (9-6pm so I'm too tired to do anything in the evening or 7pm till around midnight so I have no evening), the customers in the daytime place are whinging Northern retards (and this is a Northerner saying this) who on the whole have no idea how to look after their children, have no table manners and have no idea on how to eat a balanced diet (fish and chips then trifle at 10am? Have a nice heart attack).
    I, of course, am above all that. ;) Ok, I'm not, but it's all really wearing me down... There's either nothing to do because nobody's in or we're run off our feet because everyone's piled in at once.
    What's worse, it's the bank holiday this weekend. Or, as it's known where I work, bank HELLiday because we're so busy.
    At least the other staff are nice (although every and now and again the chef voices his opinion that drug addicts should be shot. Um.) and I'm valued by my boss.

    i cant belive this amny people dont like there jobs!.. i absolutely love mine, ive bin in the army for about 8months an ive never had so much fun,made so many mates an got as hammered as often! we get payed 24hours a day,7 days a week an you get 6weeks leave a year!....how can i complain!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I go from really liking mine to hating it depending on who i'm working with and where im working. I coach tennis and sometimes you get some right little gobshites or arrogant coaches who you hvae to work with but most of the time its bearable!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I think (well, this is true in my case ;) ) that so many people have bitched about their jobs here because they're only jobs to earn money, not jobs they've chosen as a career.

    :(

    that used to happen to me all the time, lol.
    our shop was huge, and there were nuff places to hide from customers and managers. they always stuck me on the till, and because i've got a problem with maths i hated it. i know the tills add it up for you, but its different when im in charge of someones cash or card...i used to get proppa paranoid about it. plus i was at the forefront of the customer side of things. lol, some bloke threatened to hit me because the bag on the counter wasnt big enough.

    now i work in an office just havin a good time. the workloads tough and the jobs stressful but i enjoy it.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yep, I really enjoy my job :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    ugh my job WAS cool, i had the best members of staff working with me and i even met my current GF there. Then i got transferred to the shop from hell where i have a manager that talks about golf 24/7 and an incompetant and lazy work colleague who pisses me off. Funny how i took the year out of uni to do this job and now im suddenly regretting it.

    p.s. i work for ladbrokes, woohoo the excitement. At least i get paid £7.50 an hour.

    p.s.s. i took a year out of uni to save for car, travel and flat! Just in case u were wonderin
