Trucking is not a job it’s a lifestyle am I right? Sounds stupid but it’s true. You work long ass hours, see some of the most beautiful sights in the world and some of the worst. You eat bad food on the road but meet good people. To me the road is home, always has been. You shouldn’t truck if you just need a job, because you’re setting yourself up to fail. You truck because you’re ready for a challenge and you want to make a change in your life... see more

I work hard all through the night at Target while you sleep to put your favorite products on the shelves. Unlike an elf I don't have magical powers so I usually have to climb and descend ladders pretty often and lift heavy things that we stage to be put up on the shelves. My work schedule is consistent but also flexible when I need it to be. I make $12 an hour here. My wife likes that we get a discount too. Good job for the last 5 months for... see more
I’ve been working at Dollar General for about 11 months now working really hard. I started as a retail associate and moved up to key-holder and then assistant manager and just found out that I’m going to be moved to a nearby store and be the store manager! I told my mom and she was really excited for me to finally start my career! Just wanted to share that it is possible for people to get an entry level job here and then move up!!
I normally drive for Lyft on the weekends but I decided to try a Tuesday this past week. I had my longest ride yet to date! I drove her about two hours. She was heading to visit her boyfriend who lived out there but her car was busted. Nice girl. We listened to the radio and talked. She ended up tipping me $100 for the trouble. I drove home with a big smile on my face. Grateful for long rides and kind people!!
I’m a mailman for the USPS and due to a family emergency I had to take some time off work. On my first day back I ended up running into one of the people on my route and he asked politely what happened. I explained and then had to say goodbye to get back to my route. The very next day he met me out by my truck with a basket full of fruit and gift cards and everything else. I was so taken back by his kindness and thoughtfulness for me and my... see more
Being a mail carrier is hard someday’s and I served this great country. But I have to say my favorite time of year working at the post office is when all the letters to Santa come in. I don’t know if it’s the thought of all those kids believing in something bigger than themselves or what, but it always puts a smile on my face. I always hope their wishes will come true.
On my mail route, I know most of the people on it because Im a rural carrier for the USPS.. two weeks ago was my birthday and I got a card that one of my stops left for me!! They gave me some scratch off tickets and I won 20 bucks from one so it was such a good day. I love this job because of stuff like that. It can be really stressful at times but at the end of the day nice people make it worth it.
My most memorable job was one I had as a kid believe it or not. I worked for Pizza hut for a year to save for a car. I wanted to impress this young lady that I liked so I figured it would great to make some easy cash. Never expected to learn so much. My manager was a wonderful woman who taught me a lot, but the customers taught me even more. I don't remember all of them, but we did have one regular that I won't soon forget. He was a blind man... see more
I remember working almost all the holidays as a cashier for CVS. Sometimes you got them off, but I felt bad cuz I don't have kids or a big family so I usually would volunteer to work so others could have it off. One Christmas Eve we all wore santa hats and my boss made us a HUGE thing of hot chocolate in the back and actually baked us a ton of cookies. It was def nice to be appreciated.
When I was first teaching I worked at Home Depot on Friday after work and then Saturday and Sunday's in the garden center as a cashier and then inside during the winter months. I needed the extra income as my wife and I were buying our first home and the more money we could put down the better! I basically filled the hours for those who wanted weekends off. I enjoyed being outdoors during the warmer months, but the summertime could get pretty... see more
