Lol, its not so bad, the machine does most of the work but when I'm busy it can be insane. The worst part of my job is no one realizes its me doing all the work, so when they thank my boss for the speedy service I have to know that its really me they are thanking. We are a really quick pharmacy and pride ourselves on it. If we dont have you in and out in 5-10 minutes then the computers are broken or something. We average about 300-350 prescriptions a day. Its a busy day, but I've been there for 3 years so I am so used to every thing. Me and the other three tech'* know how everything works in the whole store, so at any given moment we are doing our jobs and someone elses too. People are morons and unfortunatley its impossible to find good help. I went off on a bit of a rant there, but I just really think we are the most under appreciated people in retail.

I'm a financial controller at The Hartford. Not sure what I really do besides use the dual screen setup to surf BC most of the day.

Boss tried to tell me yesterday that since one member of our team is leaving and I'm the only one who has a clue that i'll be picking up his work.

Told him I wasn't planning on working an 80 hour a week job. He told me it was more than a 40 hour a week job. I'm thinking I might be able to work (I'll have to try hard) 25 hours a week and get it all done.

I'm a full time student and I intern for Life Cycle Engineering ( http://www.lce.com/ ) during the summer. I've been interning at the Philly Naval Yard since '02. The job is your typical government office job which is pretty beat but i'm networking my way over to some technical codes. *Soon hopefully :( *
I'm going to do everything in my power not to sit in a cube for the rest of my life!!!

I am a highly trained, yet under paid security officer for Harrisburg Area Community College in Pennsylvania. This job is a PIA, mostly due to all the politics
