I'm a "General Hand" at the Patties Foods plant.
I can:
Make pie bottoms.
Make pie tops.
Cook the meat that goes into the pies.
Look after the oven.
Look after the scraps.
And do the breaks job.
Sometimes really hard work. Damn good pay though.

Math Tutor at my shitty junior college. I spend all day at college so I don't have to drive to another place, plus I don't need to keep my lunch in my car. Works for me.

Do you even make the pies?

First I worked in a movie theatre. The work is terrible, but you work with cool people. I went from there to my current job in a clothing store (Kenneth Cole, it's kind of expensive clothes). The work is a lot easier, but I can't stand almost all the people I work with. There's only 2 or 3 people I generally like.

Bit more complicated than that. The trays run along the "Line" where the bottoms go in then the meat gets deposited, then cheese if we're making cheese pies , then the tops go on. then under the roller and the excess dough goes up a conveyer belt back to the dough mixing area and the trays go off into the oven. There's a bit more to it than that but that's putting it in the simplest terms.
It's a pretty large operation. We can pump out up to 20,000 normal sized pies an hour or 60,000 party pies and something around 100,000 mini party pies.

Just come down to the plant in Bairnsdale, VIC, Australia and chuck in a resume, pretty sure they're actually hiring at the moment.
For those who don't know we make these and many other varieties and brands...

I think some get exported to the US as Wedgwood or something.

Meat Pie? olololo Also, Meat and Gravy pie sounds horrible.


I think it sounds really damn good. But, being a vegetarian, is there a "fire roasted vegetable and olive oil" alternative?

Chicken and Gravy, hell yes. Unidentified Meat, Gravy, wrapped in bread, and warmed in the microwave, fuck no.

Umm. I have my suspicions about the pasties on the Uni Line (They make sausage rolls and little mini pizzas and other stuff like that.) Actually you might be into the spinnach and fetta cheese rolls?

In the Four n' Twentys? 85CL beef mince, carrot and onion? Hardly unidentified meat, and pastry ≠ bread.

What were the requirements for the job? I've been looking for work and I'm fine with boring.

Goddamn I want some motherfucking pie right now.

I'm an insurance consultant, my main job is in policy sales but I do a lot of customer service and advisory work as well. I'm also the referral point on my team for underwriting questions, which basically means people (including my boss) come to me when they have any questions. I'm the shiz.

Haha that reminds me. We just tried out In-N-Out for the first time because they just came to Utah and the chick at the window was all super happy and it was really creepy.

Shit was creepy, yo.

Meat pies are fucking amazing.

I worked at a Michel's Patissere (cake store/cafe for those not from Australia/New Zealand) for 2 years. The boss was an ass to me for the first three months just to break me in, but then he realised I could do all the jobs and I eventually ended up as his longest standing member of staff. I basically got to sell cake, make coffee and talk shit about people with him. Also heaps of hot girls would work there. Had to quit cause of a skin condition the place gave me though... It was filthy. ****ing hard job too.

Now I need a new job cause I have $40 in the bank. Thinking of going to Maccas
