so for you UGers with jobs...where do you work?
i work at an Ingles grocery store. its pretty crappy compared to the other stores around here (well, very crappy) but they were the first ones to call back and ive yet to find a place id rather be. on bad days, i wanna burn the place to the ground. on good days, its not too bad.
So where do you guys spend endless hours trying to make money? how much do you make? any funny stories? etc

Virgin Media.

I get paid tomorrow, this is the paycheque with my bonus from the first quarter in, so it will be £1000 instead of £600.

Not a lot, but I'll take what I can get when I'm a student and can only spare 19 hours per week...

I work in a church rectory on Sundays and there's always a kid who calls and asks if he someone saw the lunchbox he left during Sunday school. It's so cute.
I don't do much in my job, just answering phones, letting people in, stuff like that. It gets really quiet after an hour or so. I just hang out, sit pretty for like 3 hours and get paid $10 an hour.

I came out with less than £1000 a month working 35 hrs a week for one of the worlds largest pharmaceutical companies as a researcher last year.

So don't complain!

And Mistress Ibanez How much

I get paid £139ish and that's for 8 hours work.

I work at sainsbury's on checkouts.

EDIT:

8 hours a week, seeing as it's giving so much confusion

I respect Richard Branson, but Virgin Media is absolute bollocks

I half envy those with jobs, but I've still yet to look around for one to have over the summer. But I appreciate the freedom (though lack of because of money and exam constraints).

I'm still a paperboy, but that's not a job!

I'm not complaining! The extra £490 is from selling virgin media products, contract phones and new connections to the standards they set out in our quarterly targets. My regular wage is something like £550 per month when I work 19 hours per week, which is enough to pay the rent and food and the like. I can buy a new amp this month though =D


Full timers get double comission than what I get, they're taking home £1200 per month AND £1000 commission per quarter. People who work full time, consider virgin mobile, srsly!

The general consumer is a first-class asshole. Don't even bother trying to help people. It just fails.

I've been to Currys digital once, and the cowbag who served me got pissed at me because I didn't want to pay an extra £20 for cover on my iPod, then the store closed down like a week later.

Sorry, only just vaguely related.

I got sacked from working at WFC. All I did was not turn up and didn't tell anyone after I ticked to work. And it took them two weeks to realise, the level of incompetence at that place is remarkable, from the players to the catering managers

I know what you mean. On my checkout i've had customers swear at me for making silly mistakes like pressing the wrong button, or not having a supervisor on hand (they're always busy)

Oh >.<


And yeah, customers are horrible. Natwest bank cards don't have account numbers on, but when I point this out to people and tell them you NEED an account number to set up a direct debit needed for a contract, they get really angry.

Some idiots try to do it with a cashcard, which has "NOT A DIRECT DEBIT GUARANTEE" written on the back.

Not to mention, as has been said in this thread, everyone hates virgin media. It's not fun being the face of the company because you take the brunt of everyone's insults. Have a phone, call the call centre, it's not my problem =/

you should come all the way to scotland just for my store, we're all nice people and one of the few stores in scotland that actually makes the company any profit... i have been to other currys stores as a customer and the service has been abysmal so as a group i can see why we get a bad reputation, but it's such a kick in the teeth to us when Which? magazine give us bad reviews as we genuinly do work hard in our store but all these reviews of the entire group are based on about a handful of stores they visit where the staff probably don't care.

i hate people

Of course, I don't even know what the hell a psycholinguist would do...so I could be wrong.

Search for the language centre in the brain. It's been 100 years since psychology started as a reputable science (somewhat) and we still don't know what part of the brain makes us talk! D'oh. Or I could be a private language tutor, speech therapist, bla bla, they can charge the yuppies quite a lot. I suppose lawyers do have it better though...

Psycholinguists translate crazy speak into something the rest of us can understand. Politicians use them on a regular basis.
