I'm studying for Sec+ certification right now lol. scale of 1-10 how hard is the test?


I would say a 8 if you are new to security or networking.

Like for my my struggle was mainly remembering all the acronyms.

I highly recommend finding Professor Messers notes for sec+

I wish I have a job, I was supposed to be working at Walmart as a Cashier but they never contacted me, so I'm disappointed. But I'm hoping to go back to my old job as a organizer for a flooring company... warehouse. Like cabinets, wood, different color of wood and cabinets... etc. all I do is pretty much keep things in order or organized, and I get paid bi-monthly from 300~600 dollars.


BI-MONTHLY?

are you in the US?

since that is kind of low..


Well, yes I am in the U.S. And that job requires 4 years of experience. I have none, so it's low for a reason. All i really do is just document entries, that's all. There's an accountant who gets paid twice as much.

I can't say I dislike it. It's a family run restaurant and the family is really great honestly.
I'm pretty lucky to have this as my first job.

But I'm a college graduate. I've got skills that are going unused right now. My heart aches every time I hear of a classmate's success because that should be me. I should be there looking for a place where I can make a difference too. I should be improving myself and raising my skill levels.
I took on work so I could save up some money, and I've asked to leave at the end of the month. Planning to hit the job market again with more force now that the pain of graduating has faded.

My current job is soul sucking, but it pays my bills plus some, I have a good amount of freedom, I thoroughly understand my position and what's expected of me so I'm rarely in a situation I can't handle.

After six years though, I'm not certain I will stay much longer. I can't say I'm actively looking for a new job, but I am paying attention to other opportunities. Though, as an IT person, we get to see the sad underbelly of an organization with no power to make any real difference. I'm almost thinking of moving into a new industry just so I can return to blissful ignorance.

In a manner of speaking, I'm happy with it. I'm not happy with a couple of the people I work with. One is a really bad tweaker, and that's not fun. I have an easier time running the busiest store in the city by myself, than I do working with her. Adding babysitting her to the mix (among other things...) doesn't make life very easy.

The other one is just a nasty bitch, she's a terrible person. The job itself? My days go FAST, my customers really like me and like 90% of the people I see in a day are regulars (this is easily in the hundreds) - very strange for someone as anti-social as I am. I think the disparity between my job and my personal life is so drastic it takes everything I have and I'm beat by the end of a regular day - but at the same time I think it's something I need. People around me that I am forced to socialize with - but also the authority to tell people to take a hike if I deem it appropriate. I have a much easier time socializing when I am most definitely in control and calling the shots - and I think it's healthy for me to be forced to do that socializing because without it I think I'd degrade into a worse and worse person, by my own volition.

Damn, that seems like a deeper answer than I meant to give. I like my job, and I like my days. If I could get good co-workers again, this job would be one of the best in the world.... and it's a convenience store / truck stop. There are rough times and some very belligerent truck drivers out there, but knowing I have total authority (and almost always being right anyway...) really help take the stress out of most confrontations. If they go too far they can be escorted off the property, even if it has to be the police doing it. If anything serious happens, almost everyone around me is a regular / daily customer who is thankful that I'm there to help them. I've had groups of them diffuse situations FOR me, and that helps too. It doesn't sound like a fun job - but the positives usually outweigh the negatives and I have a good time and get paid...

HOWEVER, the pay could be better - raises are not regular and so I am always on the market. If raises were regular and there wasn't such a visible ceiling, I would probably work there forever. That will never be the case in this line of work, though.

despise my job. I get treated like crap, left with all the work, told i don't do any work even though I am the only one who works, get forced to work off the clock on a weekly basis for an hour+ on busy days, working for a job that pays 11.50 an hour, stressed to the point I want to just give up and cant find a way to change not being able to drive due to not having a modified car I can use

Is it even possible to be 'happy' with a job if even glancing encounters with people are like you set them on fire?

I think it's very much possible. One thing I've learned is that the customer is usually disappointed or pissed off with the company you work for or what it stands for - not you, the person. Sometimes you're just the embodiment of the company and you become the center point of their rage ... kind of how it works.

That is true, for customers at least. Some people cannot take it impersonally though. Extending that out, some people have trouble handling any sort of interaction. Even the most innocuous interaction can serve to frustrate or make uncomfortable one or all involved parties. They may never directly interact with the actual customer of the service provided, just the customers of the customers, who may just make things up in order to cause trouble for someone who they take offense at because that person can tell them not to do what they think they can do.

Nope. Ever since I went into management its like I'm a glorified babysitter. Everyday is hectic, everyday I got to worry about my area (and what work needs to be done that was left by others on the previous shift) and others around me (while that is my job, 75% of time I'm just trying to get us through the shift). Was recently moved to a new area with a new head who doesn't know as much about the area the people, so were both clueless. People not coming into work just makes what could be a decent day hard. Too many new hires and no where near enough time to train. Had a guy get injured on my 2 day in my new area, had a coworker get into an accident on the 3rd.

I've only been in management for like 9 months and while I've had some good times with my coworkers and the company itself, the company is just a mess. While I was in a fairly good position and even built a great team there was a change that put me and others including my now boss in an unfamiliar areas without training. I wouldn't be upset about the move if I didn't feel it was a little unfair given promises being made before my move into management and my seniority within the company. Overall I understood the change, but the no training bit or a direct reason why the change the happen just further belittles my opinion on how the company is ran.

Within the coming months I'll be moving on from this job, to something more stable.

accountant? on average they are making $75,000 a year..

the ones working for big company can make 200-500+ K a year..


speaking of which.. you saw The Accountant movie ? it's a pretty good movie

the part when he was helping the farmer couple filing tax was the best part of the movie imo..
