Well I have two jobs on top of being a full time student at Virginia Western Community College...which I just found out is one of the hardest CC's in the state...just my luck .

I work part time at Texas Steak House making some pretty good money stacks for I only work the $$$ nights...i.e. Saturday's and Sunday's...Great place to work and usually on the average I make anywhere from 12-20 dollars an hour depending on weather and how busy we are.

Then I also have a job at the Mainstay Suites which is about 40 yards from Texas. I man the front desk for 3-11 and it's the easiest job ANYONE could ever want, yet it's so damn boring. However since I started working there I've learned how to beat Solitaire in under 60 seconds lol. ***As if that's something to brag about*** This job is refered to as the "Ford Fund" for I don't think a single pay check from the place has went anywhere eles!

If you're in the area come by and see me...I'll be sure to hook you up!

I am a student at the local community college and I work at a BMW dealer doing such things as: delivering cars to people or places. Picking up parts, people, etc. Washing/gasing customer or company cars. Clean shop. Basically a company
"b!tch" I basically go where I am needed and they are cool as hell with working around my school schedule, projects, and trips to the track (umm, I mean calling out sick.)
I'll be transferring to a state college in a couple months so the bird will go into hibernation and I will live the "broke college kid" life for the next year and a half. So whatever gets done withing the next few months will be it for a while.

...currently without a job. I agree with Cougarstriker89erLS, Walgreen's (or any other retail store) would suck to work for. I've worked hospital and home infusion.

I worked at a sweatshop pharmacy for prisons for a month and I got out of there real quick. That was at the end of February. Now it's time (after a little time off) to get going again.

I'd like to get out of pharmacy altogether and do something creative. Like write books or own a unique small business or do something neat with computers.
Who knows.

I'm a service tech for Bellsouth. If you need a phone, I hook it up. If it's broke, I fix it. Working for a major corporation is a pain in the *** as far as company politics goes, but the job is easy and the pay and benefits are outrageous. I've been in this job for over 7 years and have seen, heard, and done things I never imagined I would see, hear, or do at work. The best part of the job is the good customers and the worst part of the job is the PITA customers. I don't know what my favorite job related story is, it's a toss up between the girl in the blue panties and the girl in the smiley face panties . That's very rare though, but it sure is nice.

I'm a full time student at the University of New Mexico. I'm a Senior in the Department of Physics and Astrophysics (PandA to some). I'm on the 5 year (5.5 year?) plan because I decided on majoring in Astrophysics a year into school, so I had to kinda push my way into the program late...so I've always been trying to 'catch up.'

Where do I get my $$$? I usually get a Pell Grant from the Government...usually my tuition and books are paid in full by that.

I DO work though...I'd say part time, but it all really depends on my school schedule. I work at LodeStar Astronomy Center (LAC). My 'big' assignment right now is running a 16" Meade Telescope every Sunday so that the general public may view the Sun...they call it 'Solar Sunday'... heh.

Other than that, I do "Education Outreach." Basically, I just run an assortment of telescopes and train new comers on how to find things in the night sky (Constellations, names of certain stars, planet locations, 'Seas' of the Moon, etc.). On occasion, I do planetarium shows in our Starlab (no that is NOT me in that photo...I found that online). The Outreach crew goes to schools (elementary, mid, or high school) or to Boy/Girl Scout Troops free of charge....so that's always nice.

What do I do after I graduate? Hell if I know... teach.. US Air Force (if I lose like 2 tons ) ..... or maybe racing school... who knows.

OK...I'm done. Kinda nerdy.... but *sigh* .... yeah... I guess I'm a damn nerd.

Hmmm..... LodeStar Astronomy Center ??? Do you get employee discounts? A Meade 10" Schmidt-Cassegrain's on my Wish List.....

If not, no worries, LOL....can't get it for a while, anyway...that's why it's on the Wish List!

I remember the Pell Grants well. They helped out immensely during the 4th and 5th year of my 4-year music degree. I lived off of them for 2½ years. Sounds like you have a rather interesting field of study....astronomy is a big hobby of mine.
