If you were worth half a shit, someone would have given you some more responsibility and the perks that go with it.

You're logic is flawed faggot. I'm not >>257 but I can tell you some of the hardest workers often go unnoticed and even worse sometimes straight up taken advantage of while others get to slide buy meanwhile someone else is paying their rent by doing all the work. I'm this type of person but learn to just deal with it. So try not being wrong some time even those people that move up and give that impression "they got it all done" usually cut some major fucking corner somewhere in order to say they "got it done" when they didn't "get it done".

Go back to Wells Fargo and fraud some more asshole.

Not really, my dick is above average so I don't need to measure against the metaphorical dick of my supervisors. Good luck though!

Yeah highly specialized trade unions can rake in hella dough. I know a guy who does an elevator union gig. Has to travel a lot but makes 6 figures no problem.

For years when I was younger, I was the target of every taken chick that was too drunk, and always stupidly turned them down because I felt bad. I'm talking like a dozen times at least. And then one time my boss at a shitty job had a wife that made a pass at me and I said fuck it. We flirted and fucked tons of times, she even rubbed my dick over my pants when his back was turned 3 feet away once. Another time I called out, and I fucked her while he was covering my shift. I haven't seen either of them in like 7 years, no regrets.

So wtf. I can't even get a shit minimum wage job with my associate's in the electrical trade. Employee's market my FUCKING ASS. Problem? Not the trade, it's that I lack a DL, but I feel ready and am taking the test soon. Will make an appointment today.

Thing is while I wait, I wanted to get some money in but no place wants to hire me. I've had 4 previous Jobs but 2 ended in shitty terms. Got laid off after 1 week from one and like 2 days for the other one. It was horseshit warehouse laborer work anyways. A dead end job so I didn't care much but I still want some temp/part time side job while I'm trying to transition to the electrical trade.

I think my reasons for being laid off from one was reasonable but the other one probably because I didn't work 12 hr shifts (maybe because it wasn't advertised that way in the job ad???????). I'm not working 60hrs a week for a 12 an hr job. That's slavery and that's retarded. 50 is the most i would do in a week.

Shit. I live in southern cali btw. Employers want permanent employees and I'm a bad liar and i think they can tell I will job hop at first opportunity because of my electrical degree.

Fuck man.. I just want some cash

If you think employers are ever honest about the job description you are a naive manchild. All jobs description are as follows:
Employer: You my bitch?
Employee: 10-4 or quit

You sound like a tool. Trade jobs are hiring anyone with a pulse that can stay off thier phone. You don't even need to be competent

Lastly, many ask for an ET card (meaning a trade school student or graduate) and a DL.

This. A buddy of mine had a job before he was even out of his electrical trade school. Move the fuck out off the coast into a flyover state where there's work.

I want to try to get in local 11 first. They start off at 19.96 and cap at over 44 an hr.
And again, the problem isn't the lack of work for electrical, it's the lack of a DL.
I went to my school's work center and they were going to hook me up with a job that started at 18 but I needed a DL

My job. I own a refrigeration company. There are nearly no people going into this field. I in fact hire unskilled people that have a stellar work ethic and train them myself (starting at PM, then part changer, than hopefully diagnostic tech). Every worker worth a shit in trade jobs are sitting pretty with a cushy job or own thier own biz. They produce and the owners know it and are treated well because they are $$$$. The rest of the people in the field are warm bodies to show up to a job site and appear to work before the big boys gotta come behind them. Fuck we can't find enough warm bodies to show up and stay off the phone, much less a competent trained tech which is pretty much a unicorn.

I start people on PMs at $17. Once you know how to change parts I bump you up to $22 with profit sharing. If you get to be a good diagnostic tech I will pay you over $30 if you produce with plush profit sharing.

Trade school or community college. If you do community college you could still become a nurse and actually make good bank. The need for Trade workers is high and only getting higher so going that way may offer a larger payout in the long run

How many of you are underemployed or unemployed?

Not everyone can win. 44% underemployement rate for college grads 22-27

I'll probably stop looking in my field for a while and focus on trying to land some shitty paying job. It's been like 3 months since I graduated. Last job was a month ago. Some shitty ass general labor job. Got laid off for refusing to work 12 hr shifts. Fuck that. For 12 an hr, fuck that. Stupid jews.

There is also the problem worldwide of cutting off more and more benefits while unstabilizing the workforce with freaking stupid assholes to replace the good guys that leave.

Military wolrdwide is becoming a politically correct fuckfest and they are making it harder to work and get good people that is willing to work to replace the ones they fucking fire over stupid bullshit.

Lot of half truths in here. Except for the ´Not´ a good time to enlist thing.

You see, you aren´t getting rich in the military. Hell, sometimes you won´t even have enough to live well but is a steady income that you can save upon. Don´t throw your money away in a stupid ass´d car or an expensive house.

Don´t get married, but this applies for everything nowadays but still, don´t even fucking consider marrying if you enlist not even if you are literally a cuck. You´ll get raped beyond recognition.

And, the standards for getting in are getting higher and higher. The test are getting difficult for everybody, even females, so if you plan on getting in you gotta be a sports enthusiat of some kind.

Also, the workplace is getting stressful because as I said before, you are getting cuts everywhere and either you have no personel or you are stucked working wih incompetent assholes.

Better check out their new retirement program first. They're putting everyone on 401ks "so you have something to take with you", but it's really just a way to fuck everyone out of retirement at 20 years.

Avoid infantry unless you can find the smart ones. I've been around a few that are genuinely smart and since I'm a POG it helps with getting ready for the field or range days, being their mechanic also helps.

Don't listen to the trolls, they have never served.
Basic is a little rough until you figure out you can tell the drill instructor you have to take a dump, then you go sleep on the toilet until you are fully rested.
After basic when they put the keg in your barracks then the fun starts. After that it is pretty much partying 24x7 for your 4 year enlistment.

Sure you will see some rough shit, like when they only have domestic beer for the keg but these experiences will strengthen you as a person.

You should do it.

This man speaks the truth.

If you don't squander your money on stupid bullshit or get married, military service is a great way to move into the middle class. All you have to do is endure a couple years of boredom, being treated like human trash, being overworked, unappreciated, and being surrounded by cynics and retards (of which you are certain to be one or the other yourself).

It was worth it for me, since I was becoming a NEET right after high school. Doing a lot better as a veteran.

I'm >>313 and I'm only in my first Enlistment. I'm a 91 series right now but I'm thinking of reclassing to 13B. But yeah before I joined the Army I worked for shit money and long hours. The pay is decent if you can get promoted fast and actually give a shit about your job.

OP if you do join and by the end of your enlistment don't see yourself doing it as a career; get out. So many people complain and never get out. Do what you love, not what you think your tied to.

I did 4 years in the Air Force, 2A6X6.

>>303, if you want money and promotion, the Army is the best branch; the Army promotes very quickly, so as long as you are halfway competent and ambitious, you can make it work for you a lot faster than other branches.

Air Force undeniably has the best quality of life out of all of the branches, but very few people make NCO within 4 years. This is how they bribe people into enlisting for 6 years rather than 4. Air Force is a LOT more tolerable than Army service, but you pay for it by having almost McDonald's level of upward mobility.

I've only been in the Army for 16-17 months. Started as E-1 now I'm E-3 trying to get a waiver to E-4. I'm trying to hit NCO before my enlistment ends but I don't think I'll get promoted pass SPC because my unit has to many NCOs as it is

It also depends on the base you're stationed at.

I was stationed at a base that only had about 3-7 aircraft there at a time, and was only capable of rotating up to 12. Needless to say, as a junior enlisted aircraft mechanic, I didn't even the chance to meet my journeyman requirements (essential for putting on Staff Sergent) until I deployed to a base in the middle east that had about a hundred aircraft on rotation.

If you're stuck in a small place, expect to get gyp'd on experience, and treated like an incompetent retard for not knowing how to do a lot of basic things (also depends on your AFSC/MOS).
324 Name: Anonymous 2018-11-17 18:35
funny about my MOS, its not used where I'm stationed. I'm just on the MTOW or whatever to work on the fuelers. Buuuuut they are never used and if something breaks they just replace the part. I just work on any vehicle I can get a chance on. My ncos appreciate that I'm pulling more than my fair share of work considering my predicament. But still I'm reclassing after this enlistment because I actually want to do my job.
