Stress on the job

I actually grew quite use to very stressful days while working for clinical radiology, but honestly having the knowledge to be able to do your job extremely well under stress or not was actually very fullfilling. Just knowing that you had solid knowledge driven answers in any situation could be quite fullfilling and comforting to coworkers and site facilities. Through years of experience i have learned to not let stress or strain get in my way, to me it was just part of the job and something i was able to easily handle with a nice bubble bath at the end of a rather grueling day.

Knowledge also inspires confidence Lynn Waters which makes handling stress a lot more manageable. Good Strategy! :-)

The thing about work I wish more people talked about

I really don't have an answer for that.I would like to say that this is my first time working in the healthcare field and I've done market research for the last 20 years and childcare also for the last 10 years and for me to do this is different and I enjoy it I like helping people I enjoy helping people I am a people person I care about people's feelings and I just want people to be happy and comfortable in their own home I want them to be able to trust us so that they are able to go on with their daily routine once we leave them and they'll know that we'll be back again to help them this is a wonderful experience for me I'm glad that I am with Addus home health Care thank you for accepting my application and thank you for the wonderful training that I had to.

I'm a laid off Machinist still looking for work.

I'm just giving a little update on my job search so far. Since the last time I posted on here I've had 4 interviews. I'm just waiting for some feedback from 3 of them. One of them wanted to hire me on the spot for far less than I was making previously from my other job. I'm willing to take a little pay cut to prove my skills and work ethics. But this was literally embarrasing to me with my many skills and what I have to bring to the table. They offered me $43,000 to start, I was making $60,000 + at my last job. I ask the interviewers is there any room for negotiations. They ask me what would I suggest and I told them $52,000. One of the interviewers quickly said "we don't have some engineers and supervisors making that kind of money". I said "I have a lot to bring to the table" and everyone agreed. They told me the max the would go is $45,000. I told them let me think about it. That was 4/2/2020. I know I need to work and bring money into my household to keep the roof over my head and food on my table. But there is several thing I know I have working for me in my life is my wife of 32 yrs and the back up plans we've created over the yrs for times like this. I want to really go back to work but I'm not going to be handled like I'm desparate. I'm a patient person and I know that ideal job will present itself to me in the near future. Ok guys thanks for listening and please everyone be safe.

I've had several people lowball, if you're out of work they think maybe you'll bite. I've done that too many times and as a result stayed at the same crappy level unhappy in my new job. Won't do it again. The thinking I think is they can get younger cheaper for those positions but salaries aren't one size fits all. I just go on to the next one if they won't negotiate.

Would You Do This Job for $58,000 a Year?

Today I read about a guy in Australia whose job scuba dive into a tank of raw sewage and fix broken things at the bottom. Y'all he jumps into a tank of poo, diapers, bugs, and who knows what else for a living! My next question is how much money are they paying this man to do what I believe is the worse job in the world. I googled haz-mat diving which is technically what this job is called and they get paid on average...$58,000 a year! Talk about a crappy job.

Okay now which one of y'all would be willing to do this for $58K / year? Be honest!

In case you want to read the entire article about this man being a professional poo diver: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/8gxjkx/professional-poo-diver

GM! I am working in the Gas & Oil Refineries, which is a very dangerous job! I am a Safety Attendant/Technician. Mainly responsible for testing the atmosphere of individuals entering inside of vessels ( confine spaces). I am in a Union, and have Journeymen, out in my field. Making between $35 - $36, per hour. So you weigh the matter.

What’s keeping me motivated during this pandemic

I work with a small company of 7 called “Mumsa” in San Francisco, our work is based on providing organic nutritional meals to preschoolers and elementary students. We cook at school locations and cater food to the schools that don’t have a kitchen on site. Though because the pandemic we are no longer are able to provide those meals 5 times a week. We now pack organic produce bags once a week for the staff and students families of the schools and do curbside pick up (our company is included in there tuitions but has now ended). In addition we also offer purchasing these bags and/ or purchasing to be donated to others in need and deliver Monday-fridays! We’re doing everything we can to continue show support to the community in such hard times. This is what’s keeping us motivated! But we also need help from the community to help keep us running 🙏🏽 #supportthecause #mumsaishereforyou #protect&serve #healthyeats #spreadtheword #coronavirus #foodservices #aboutmyjob #healthcare

I wanted to work at #NewYorkCityTransit because

I've always wanted to drive a city bus especially in the borough of Manhattan. You never know who is going to get on your bus. I'm a people person. I get along with everybody. To be in control of the most important vehicle and answering all types of questions. I felt like a tour guide most of the time. To wear the blue uniform with my silver and blue badge on my right shoulder I felt like a representative of New York City. It was a very rewarding career.

Recently laid off Machinist dabling in work from home opportunities.

I was recently laid off (03/20/2020) from my job of 6 yrs as a machinist. I thought I would be there at least another 15 yrs until I retire. But things happen in life unexpectedly and you must prepare for that. One thing I learned through out my life, I'm now 51 yrs old, is that you must create a lot of back up plans to stay afloat in life. I hate the notion of living paycheck to paycheck and not knowing when your employer will let you go and not having that check coming in anymore. The feeling of that send chills through my spine. I'm always learning new things so that I can be very valuable to the next company I get hired onto. I have a lot of skills : Electrical, Robotics Programmer, Welder Certified, Brakepress Operator, CNC Operator and quite a few other skilled trades I do not want to name them all right here but you get were I'm coming from. Always learn new skills to make your job hunting easier for you. I've done and still do some work from home stuff from the side to make extra money for the past 15 yrs. I just like to stay busy. Now since I'm not working I've been busy doing a lot more online work at home opportunities. I'm sure in another week or two I will be working for another company. Too everyone out here looking for a job, stay strong, always learn new things and never give up. Always help out your fellow man and woman, we are in this together. Stay safe and good luck.
