I'm on 100% commission, but I set my own hours, and we're the highest paid in our industry. I cant complain.

Um...what do you do?

I absolutely love my job. I'm a parts guy at a Subie dealership. It's a frickin' blast working with the guys I work with. We have a blast all day joking around and doing stupid shit. There is never a dull moment.

I like my job so far. Just dealing with files and organizing things. Alot of hot attorneys come in though. It can get boring sometimes but thats what the internet, mp3 player, and psp are for. Sure beats retail though. Best buy returns is fucking gay!!!

I chose love it but really I just like it. It gets on my nerves sometimes but I rarely dread going to work and it's 100x better than my last job. I'm an aerospace systems engineer so it's a lot of managing other engineers. Which I love but sometimes people are a real PITA.

I'm a Relationship Manager with Heartland Payment Systems. We're a merchant service provider. We provide credit/debit cards, check, and payroll processing.

People who came from other competing businesses cant believe how well we get paid, and we can do it without gouging the merchants.

I really don't mind my job, I'm a crew scheduler for NW Airlink. I have to be there at 430, and on slow days it's boring, but on busy days it's killer. I have the net though so I can tool around on here, most of the time.

This job is a stepping stone though... All I need is more hours and some ratings and I'll be flying for them. I just got to sit in on a full motion sim lesson for some new hires... I'm getting to know some key people, which will make getting hired cake. Then I will love my job.

wow.. everyone has.. good jobs..

Me? I sell parts.. at advance auto parts.. corrupt as hell.. Some other employees are cool.. the rest are useless pieces of sh*t.. And I get paid pretty low..

But it pays off sorta.. When you "borrow" so many parts and supplies from work and theres almost no way they can prove it was you.. that or a 20% employee discount.. And I dont really think stealing is good.. but when the company is f*ckin retarded and screws you over everyday, then you gatta do what you gatta do.. Never stole any money and wont..

And friend and I do some performance work on the side.. that brings good money in..

I'm a student so I have a crappy job but it's easy and pays better than most other jobs at a similar level. Free workouts on Mondays when the shipments of the big bags of dog food come in aswell. The rest of the time I have horny housewives flirting with me after being wooed by my glorious accent.

I pretty much hate my job, and if I can find someplace else to go that pays as much, I'd be out of there in a heartbeat. I like the people I work with, but I hate the big corp thing, where I'm more of a number than a person, and I can't seem to get ahead there, hardly making any more now than when I started 5 years ago, it's ridiculous. Oh, I work for Intel, by the way.

I love my job. I've never woken up and not wanted to go in. I get paid well. The biggest part of enjoying any job is the people you work with.

Man, yous guys are lucky, I usually have trouble sleeping work nights because because I dread going in to work the next day. I sleep fine on weekends, but not work nights.

I chose "I love it".

I used to like my jobs...but then I realized I only really enjoyed one of them until my current employer. I enjoyed being a bartender/waiter.

Now, I am part of the world's most powerful and dominant navy. Currently I am in charge of ~132 students who are being trained to do what I am already qualified to do: network analysis, exploitation and attack. I love my job, but like anything it does have its trying moments...like being deployed or standing guard duty on the main gate of the base when it's 105° outside.
