    Whats your job, what are you studying in? Do you like it?
    whats the + and - of your job.dream job?

    discuss this here :)

    for my par, im currently studying in machinist working on milling,turret lathes,grinding/cylindrical grinder machine.
    im in my second year out of 2, and ill do an extra semi session of cnc programming, i just started this year to manualy program gcodes, we start using autocad within a month to program directly the pieces,to be able to do both at any given moment.
    I'm currently also working as a milling-turret lathe machinist in a small shop,
    i love my job, i wouldnt dream of anything better, being a car fan, i can with ease make many parts if needed by only payin for the material which gets me a good 1/5 of the cost needed to buy these.
    i wish to one day buy my own milling,turret lathe and eventualy start my own business once i go to school to make my own company etc..im 19 yo btw.

    how about you?

    I'm a dispencer in a pharmacy, people treat me like dirt, demand that they presciption was make up yesterday without the prescription (cheeky fuckers), get shitty because the doctor didn't give them the right tablet or not the right quanity and they are the ones that don't pay for them or ask them to fill out the back properally(otherwise we make a loss on that presciption). it's a right laugh being in a pharmacy. However there are people who do say thanks for the job you do and that you delivered a great level of care and who are guenially nice about it.

    You should work in the US. A recent survey of professions found that people most trusted their pharmacist above their doctor, lawyer, and even undertaker. Pharmacists get a lot of respect here. I don't see people treating them poorly.

    Well in a nut shell...What is your dream job? Go for it! It may take several steps and planning but you have the opportunity right now to do anything you want to do. It's far more debilitating to try it when you are considering giving up your salary and benefits. I wish you the best with the journey. I made it a year and a half ago and it has been a year and five months of sleepless nights since I walked out on my old life.

    I'm retired. I retired when I was 47. Now I do volunteer work for PAWS and our local food pantry.

    I work for the UK Government.

    I used to think that I was an entrepneur, but they take 63% of what I do, so, well, there you go.

    The problem is the people who don't pay, especially people on benifits that don't work or over 60's they have EVERYTHING on script. Also people who have unusal products or strengths they expect everwhere to stock what they have. I don't mind people having a pre payment card. I really think that if everyone paid a small fee of £2-4 everywhere in the UK. Too many people expect a 10 item scipt to be done in 2 minuties do they want it done correctly or quickly with lots of errors.

    That's when you put up a sign that says just that. I know what you mean about the cranky oldsters though. I try to cut them a lot of slack and get away from them if I can't. Unreasonable customers are just that. Take some consolation that they're probably the same way at every shop, not just yours.

    Here we usually have copays for drugs. Even if you're on Medicaid there are copays. I don't know that it helps anyone to have them as they usually make little difference to the person paying one.

    For the past 10 years, I've worked as an accountant in private industry doing accounts payable, purchasing, and inventory management. I don't especially like the inventory part, but I love the rest of my job. The ownership of our company is transitioning over the year ahead, and the new owner will move the business to Nevada once she has total control. I will never leave San Diego, so it's time to take proactive action. This past weekend I've been working on my resume. As unsettling as a job change can be in these tough economic times, I'm looking forward to something new and new people to work with. I'm a survivor and will make it work.

    I'm currently a freelance translator, but I've done a few different jobs over the years, including TV post-production, modelling and porn. I feel like it's time for a change of job but the money's too good and I don't really fancy spending another four-five years studying.

    i'm an unemployed starving student. prior to my job loss i was working in the hotel industry. beginning next year i'm starting a personal scrapbooking service since i haven't been able to find any stable work. i would much rather do something i enjoy, set my own hours, and not have to commute and follow the rules of the workplace.

    and may i add, i agree with mercyfulfate. there should also be an "unemployed" choice to pick from the poll. just a thought :wink:

    sorry if the poll isnt complete i just thought it would help, it wasnt meant to be a poll at first, just discuss what you do in life,are you happy about it,pros and cons of your job, salary,social aspect of it,having an affair with a coed? well entertain us.
