In my years, I have worked many jobs...many companies, many fields. Sometimes I would work one full-time job in the day - with a part-time at night, and a spare on the week-end. I have woken early, stayed up late, slept in the cafeteria, and had uniforms stashed in various cabinets.
In my time, I have worked as/in:
Food service: fast food, casual dining, fine dining, server, greeter, bar assistant, trainer, kitchen manager, prep work
Recreation: parks assistant with clean up and activity planning, lifeguard, camp counselor
Retail: beauty supplies, jewelry, clothing, sales, stocking, merchandising
Salon: reception and product sales
Customer Service: call center, customer satisfaction surveys and focus groups, contract negotiation
Banking and Financial Services: consumer banking, teller, retail loans, real estate lending, deposits, private banking, business banking, mortgage collections, investments, mutual fund sales, portfolio advisement, assistant manager, vault inventory
Music: radio DJ, sound engineer (live and studio), artist promotion, music promotion, event planning
Education: private kindergarten, preschool, high school, private lessons, teaching assistant, teacher
Adult: phone sex operator, gentleman's club cocktail waitress, escort appointments, and actual escort
So....maybe it is my overly expansive experience ("I'm a mercenary for experience." Diane Sawyer) - but it irks me to listen to some early 20s whiner girl, who in all likelihood had her university education paid for by mommy and daddy, and has happy happy holidays, whine because "one time, when I worked in a bar, a guy tried to touch me!" or "I walked in on another waitress giving head to a customer." On my friggin' G-d! Grow up!
This coming from the same girls, who proudly proclaim they know how to flirt to get guys in "regular" bars to buy them drinks, or take them for dinner, or pay their nightclub cover.
I have found that every money making job entails some sale of a part of yourself for the pay. Every job requires some kissing of the ass. The problem is - whose ass? and when has it been kissed enough? I appreciate the job where, to put it bluntly, you know what to touch and you know when you have touched it enough to get your money! Sure...your hand is left sticky - but it's nothing a hot shower won't take care of.
