Since the last thread, I moved from journalism to academia: I'm a college professor.

I have the same job, at the same place, in the same office, with the same chair, and the same two computers on my desk I had then. VIVA COMPLACENCY~!

(Also, I LIKE my job.)

Same job with the same university at a shiny new main campus teaching students things they don't want to learn and hate doing. Of course, I'm technically unemployed since I'm not teaching this summer and I'm job hunting, but I prefer not to think about those facts.

Then: Target overnight.

Now: Target overnight, although I got the biggest raise one could get in my position both years. My fear of going into management and making this my "life" has kept me from moving up any higher in title though. But I am in the electronics department almost every night I work, and that is easily the best place to be in the store.

Future: Hopefully NOT TARGET!

I can almost make this same statement, except I upgraded to a new computer back in February of last year when the company rolled out Siebel 7. The rest is exactly the same. (I could really use a new chair though ).

The only other thing that has changed since my post in the other thread is that the really old computers have become really, really old computers. At least the ball has begun to roll in the process to upgrade those production computers. I am hoping for early ’07.

Anyway, it is my second “real job”* after working for Burger King and working a part time job at Bradlees on my spare time while working with my current company. I have been here since July ’92, but not in the same position, as I started on the production floor running a Freon tank.


* I had a Co-op job in High School working on a mailing list which was awesome. Go to school for two weeks, then work for two weeks making some money.

Behold the "Wise" Words of Renegade Raine, the Bishounen Hunter:


In the last thread, I was hating my dishwasher/line cook job at a BBQ restaurant. I finally got out of the job a year ago though and just last week I started at my new job. I now work in the lab at a Ritz Camera store, which means I process and develop pictures. Other than being a bit disappointed that there hasn't been any interesting pictures yet, I really like it so far.

THEN: Unemployed and living on best friend's couch. No degree.

SHORTLY THEREAFTER: Record store jockey in downtown Boston.

NOW: College graduate (NYU '05) and writing for an advertising research firm that is IN NO WAY related to Reward TV. I cannot stress that enough. Or lie less successfully.
The job sounds good at first wash, but the fact of the matter is I need something more challenging than something that could be done by a bright highschool kid.

That was one of the good & bad things about working at a drugstore with a 1-hour photo: You never know what you'll see.-- Especially in a college town. I saw some really hot (ahem) personal photographs. I also saw some of the scariest ones, too. I guess the hardest part was looking the customer in the eye without laughing when they came to pick 'em up.




I wasn't sure what happened. Then I saw the train stopping up ahead. I thought, ‘Holy crap dude, you just got hit by a train.'

Bradlees!! We had one of those in Westbrook. I am thinking most of the board won't know what Bradlees is, though. It was like a cheap K-Mart. Yes, it was.

Then: Unix Sysadmin at a smallish University.

Now: Professional Services Consultant with a small local company. My hands don't get as dirty, technically speaking, but at least things change from week to week. My business card says "Professional Services Engineer" but I hate, hate, seething hate being given the title of "Engineer" when a) I didn't earn it and b) I'm not.

It was cheaper than K-Mart in my area.

And, worth noting, it's no longer in my area. Another part of my childhood (any and all TMNT figures were purchased there) that's dead.





I work for a college Admissions office as a graduate application processor. More or less paper pushing.

My local Bradlees closed a few years ago and sits vacant, along with their awesome toy selection. It lasted longer than the Riches store but not as long as Ames did. Wal-Mart came in and clear-cut the competition!

Then, I was unemployed. Since then I've had two jobs in my field. I worked as an archivist/records manager for the city of Chester, Pennsylvania, in the second half of 2004, and I'm currently the archivist of the Delaware Academy of Medicine in Wilmington for at least another year. In between, I put in a few months in the stockroom of the local Target. Still hoping to find *permanent* archives work somewhere...

It was all about AMES back in my short stay in the great state of Maine. I can't remember the town it was in, but it had to have been somewhere near Charleston, as my Grandpa was working at the "correctional facility" there. I got a ton of great crap at that store. There was also a pretty good Chinese joint in the same shopping center as well.

Oh, back then, probably graveyard shift at Walgreens.

Now, photo tech at different, closing Walgreens. And the "interesting pictures" do end up not being interesting anymore.
