I had to get up at 6:45, to catch the 7:40 go train. Ahhhh i havent been up before 11 since summer started. Anyways, I'm working with my dad all summer at a company he works for, its some specialty insurance junk, and he works downtown. So i do get to work in the office all day. Basically what I'm doing is gunna do all the work that no one else wants to do. therefore i do alot of photocopying, and faxing and all that kinda crap. I also work on Microsoft Exel a bunch doing boring spreadsheets on red book and balck book values of cars. Yesterday it took me like 3 hours to make some spreadsheet and i still didnt finish. it's not a bad job at all, i'm gunna be working 3 days a week, and i dont have to work real hard, i'm also making 10$ per hour (Canadian, which is abuot 7.50$ american). Should be rolling in money by the end of the summer. I'm back there tomorrow. I guess this is a discuss thread, can also talk abuot your jobs and crap like that.





tl;dr version: just had first day of work, making 10 cad/hour, 7.50usd/hour, working 3 days a week for my dad.

Whichever one gives you more hours. And if thats the same, then if you drive to them, whichever is closer(dont have to use as much money on gas).

i work fulltime lifeguarding and work 9 hour days sometimes. Sounds easy, but when you are sitting in the sun all day, doing nothing but watching people, it gets tiresome. But its worth it to be able to play paintball and not have to worry about funds anymore

Yeah, I work as a lifegaurd too. Our pool is an indoor one though, and we can't work over 20 hours a week for some stupid reason. :mad:
It is pretty boring, but after hours is fun. Sometimes the gaurds get in and swim. We did it last weekend, and we broke almost every single rule they have there. Our supervisor just sat there and watched us too. We have cool supervisors at my work, but our manager is a *itch.

I do it for 8 weeks every season and make about a total of $300 per season. It is good and fun but wat sux is u get ur paycheck 3 to 5 weeks after the season is over.
