I've been trying to keep my information regarding personal stuff to a minimum, but screw it, I guess I could elaborate. I work at radioshack right now, a sales associate. Now if I actually worked off of commision, and a decent percentage at that rate, I'd complain less, but sadly, it's not the case. Minimum wage, lack of hours, and making money only off cellular phone sales and contract signings makes it STUPIDLY hard to call the job decent, but thenthere's the fact that I've become the resident handyman, fixing minor carpentry problems like loose hinges on doors, drilling holes through display tanks and such for cluttered cables from poor installation done by asshats, hell I've had to repair the toilet on more than one occasion. My terms of hiring doesn't call for any of this, but it seems to be a standard amongst the hired help. I've brought it up to my boss, but he says it's out of his hands, and complaining to the hire ups gets me nowhere, so basically, I keep complaining and hope for a change. Of course, the other problem comes in that my hours just suck now, having gotten 2 days for the week at 4 hours a day. 7 day week, I worked 8 hours for the week. Sad huh?
I'm just about to go for my security license and be done with it. My buddy is getting steady work and shittons of overtime (last 3 weeks he's put in 70 hours each week, 30 OT), and he basically sits on his ass for hours on end. I figure I'll toy with that, maybe go for my firearms license, and go for an armed guard type deal. Just trying to play with ideas before I do anything.
