Do you have an actual job with a manager or a boss? A job where you have to be on time and look like a decent human being?

If so, what do you do? Do you like any part about it? What do you hate about it?

I don't have a job, but I should probably get one because it seems like everyone else has one. I was thinking maybe I'd pick up some ideas from what you people do since you seem to have about the same mindset (give or take some of the craziness) as myself.

I have a job in a medical lab. I take care of cells, prepare gells, mix chemicals, etc. There's some cool stuff, but a lot of waiting around. It's also nice to know that my boss' boss is my dad.

I'm still going to school a few day's a month but the biggest part of school is doing projects for companies. These projects have things to do with modern information techniques (yes computers) but also a lot with business aspects of those companyís.

For instance Iíd have to make an implementation plan or a personnel analysis. Or make a software model, which may or may not include writing the software itself too.

And besides these projects, that I have to reflect back to school, I work for a number of these companies as a freelancer.

Usually with these projects I am my own manager so I donít really have a boss or manager above me. I just have to deliver adequate results. Thatís all most companyís care about.

My advice would be to get a job with computers, where you can sit around, come here and drink lots of coffee

No. I do not. The only jobs in this area consist of fast food, gas stations, and/or construction jobs. Because of this, I feel that the money I would get for working at such places would not compensate for the mental deterrioration I would suffer. This is also one of the reasons that I'm going into the Army, at least I'll get the fuck out of here and be able to do something useful. After all, taking orders from a commanding officer is better than taking orders from 40-year old divorced, single mother assistant staff manager at Wendy's.

No, but I should have one by sometime next week if all goes according to plan... that would be really nice. There's soooo much stuff I want to buy right now, it's crazy. And there's that little thing called university that I haven't exactly started saving for yet.

I'm working as an historical re-enactor for the summer. I put on a red wool coat and a plastic helmet with a spike on it, and stand guard in my city's former military compound. Easiest job, ever.

If you were implying that my job was around my house, you're wrong. Also I use a ride on lawnmower so it's sort of fun and not really work, yet I still get paid 20$

I don't understand why young people always want summer jobs... I mean, money is good and all that, but you won't have summer vacation forever... you should enjoy them while you can and avoid going into the real world of "work" and "jobs", because you'll be stuck doing that for the rest of your life, until you either die or retire to Florida to sit around and watch grass grow.

I'm really only getting a job because my parents say I have to... I wouldn't otherwise. I like having time off to do what I want to, my time should be MY time.

I'm 16. I work at McDonald's. I worked there part time during the school year, and Full time during the summer. It's stupid work, but I get $6 an hour for it, so it's not all bad.

You can enjoy it a lot more when you can earn the money you use to buy drugs instead of stealing it.

$6 an hour blows. You can get better money than that in lots of places for basically the same types of work.
