I'm a graphic designer with my BFA from Michigan State who is now a kitchen designer for Home Depot. It blows working for a "big box" company, but it's a cool gig. Need to get into a smaller company though, more money and freedoms there. Either that or back into graphics which is why I moved out here.

I count bodies and keep track of where we bury them.
02.4.08 - 12:20 pm
And if that don't work out, I'll be able to drive trucks again by October at the very most.
Despite much of the anti-vehicle jive I hear around here, bigrigs are still going to be quite useful.

I'm self-employed, and I forget to pay myself half the time. I don't answer the work phone, and only reply to jobs that I feel like doing... which means, I don't really do anything.

Currently unemployeed graphic designer.
Spending my days on M.R. dot com and riding around Long Beach/Seal Beach.
I'm also an assemblage artist. I've recently started a series of works inspired by you good folks.
Two pieces, including one titled: "Traverse/Wolfpack Hustle" will be on view next month at LACC.
Now that I think about it, I spent a lot of time at my last job on this site too. But that's not the reason I am not working there now.

haha I was on my way out to apply for a job and thought I'd make sure I wasn't missing anything important on MR, b4 I left. You see where my priorities lie. anyhoo. unemployed, kinda loving it. Before that I was kitchen designing for a small company that works w/ IKEA. It was fun at first but then became routine, I'm happy to say I won't be going back. When I'm "all better" I'll most likely sling coffee till i get my own thing going... then own thing/fungrrrstrike (I just noticed the 3r's in fungrrrstrike and got sidetracked in my mind about what those 3 r's are for me.... they arrre reading RIDING and recording the events of each day on a "sticky" on my laptop.... btw ;) can you tel I am dragging this out.... effff jobzzzz... bleh! oh no.... i just saw on the side RIP Sheldon Brown...awww man. noooo. :(

02.4.08 - 2:16 pm
I work as a manger in the Computer gaming industry supporting a MMORPG. My official title is "Lead Game Master". what that means is that I am pretty much a virtual playground school proctor. I basically make sure everyone plays nicely in our game. :-P
During my normal work day I get to learn from our customers how dark the internet can be. I get introduced to things like Meatspin, 2girls1cup and other monstrosities of the "Tubes"
02.4.08 - 2:18 pm

If you want see what I do, check it out here
02.4.08 - 3:13 pm
Marino, where is the warehouse that they filmed the main scenes of Reservoir Dogs in? That would be the ultimate party spot!
02.4.08 - 3:17 pm
haha my jos is from 9-5 and there is fluorescent lights right above me. haha
02.4.08 - 3:18 pm
The warehouse where they shot Reservoir Dogs was a mortuary on Figueroa and Ave 60(?) across from the licquor store that says "coldest beer in town".
Anyway. It has been demolished now.
There is an empty warehouse now, ready for exploring one block south of Fletcher by the bike path.
02.4.08 - 3:22 pm
"There is an empty warehouse now, ready for exploring one block south of Fletcher by the bike path."
I was scoping one out down there a couple of weeks ago.

rodeo clown. I'm currently looking for work....
02.4.08 - 4:53 pm
Shouldnt be too hard...plenty of rodeos in L.A.
If you dont tell us then everyone is just gonna start guessing
Hope is not one of these.. http://www.worst-jobs.com/
Any one want to guess what RB does?
02.4.08 - 5:21 pm
I know what RB does (at least, I think I do), but if he ain't tellin', it ain't my place to do so.
As for me, I'm a political operative for the democratic party. I get paid to spend all my time on internet forum sites, espousing political opinions and attempting to sway all those who disagree with us that we are right and deserve to rule the universe.
02.4.08 - 5:40 pm
Undercover Bob - where were you when I was riding from the westside to LA Center studios every day?! Now I ride from West Hollywood, but I sometimes head out to the friday rides straight from work. If you do the same, hit me up and we can ride to ride-starts together. I'm in the Tower building - 3rd floor.
any old username AT ideasculptor.com will reach me.
02.4.08 - 5:56 pm
Dude, I almost always leave straight form work for rides! Jannatha just told me she's working at LA center too! I've vowed to start an after work ride to The Brewery for beers at Barbara's. Are you in?
02.4.08 - 6:15 pm

I just went by to check it out.
It's a giant warehouse.
Fence is down, doors are open. Easy to get in.
Of course that means others have already been there.
All the walls inside/out are covered with graffiti.
I saw four hobos in there. They seemed quite enegetic.
Two of them were stripping the pipes off for the scrap metal.
They were not aggressive or territorial.
There were paddles on the floor from the recent rain.
It's worth a look but it's definitely more edgy/urban than romantic.
02.4.08 - 6:24 pm
I'm definitely in, but I don't usually ride on Mondays, as I try to save my legs for Wolfpack, and I sometimes skip Thursdays when I think I'm going to ride cubcamp, but other than that, I'm almost always on a bike.
02.4.08 - 6:30 pm
Indigis - Anything for rent? I know a few of us are looking. I wouldn't mind being a slum tenant. I can also get you some good deals and help install kitchens if you need.
Mixtemotions - Was the pay at least good? My Home Depot managers are morons and treat people like shit. I can hide pretty well when I'm there and dodge their power trips, but I'd rather get out. Drop me a line if you could erikschwan at gmail dot com.
Yo Delicious - What non profit? I have a good friend who wants to get back into the NPO industry again.

02.4.08 - 11:32 pm
thanks. i've been calling EDD for the past two weeks straight, multiple times a day, and i cannot get through.
they just sent me another form to fill out too, but still no check.
does ANYONE know how to get through to an EDD operator?
02.5.08 - 12:50 am
Man, I noticed alot of y'all are involved in the "Graphic Arts" in some capacity.
Although, even though I would'nt call it easy, I say it seems like I've held the "laziest" jobs out of everyone here.
Not that this type of shit matters anyway.
02.5.08 - 1:30 am
you can call the vietnamese line and play dumb (oh sorry oopps) they will transfer you, you'll get through.
If you hear "thank you for calling the edd"-hang up
If you hear "welcome to the edd" ...to short cut the menu it is 188.8.131.52.7
It usually takes about 15 tries, but you will get through. You just have to dedicate a half hour of speed dialing.
Good LUCK !!!!!
02.5.08 - 5:17 am
MARINO: That actually sounds pretty good. I wouldnt mind giving it a little TLC. Whaat do you guys think?
02.5.08 - 8:28 am
THANK YOU! IT WORKED!
it worked the very first time, but a recording in vietnamese plays first. i pressed one during the recording so i don't know if that immediately got me through, or it just automatically transfers to an operator.
Thank you very much. now i can get some new underwear and a bar of soap.

kill me now.
"Today when I went in the restroom there were seat covers all over the floor. I understand how mistakes happen and would like to take this time to encourage each of you to make a conscience decision to clean up after yourself as you exit the stalls.

Thank you and your cooperation is greatly appreciated"

I love my job.
I'm and editor/writer covering the US and Latin America for the wind energy industry's main trade magazine (Windpower Monthly). The company is based in Denmark and I work remotely from home here on the West side. Plus side to that is no commute, and mostly on my schedule, but I miss office life sometimes. Also nice is the 6 weeks paid vacation, per mandated by Denmark law.
But the best part is that I found something using my skills/training (journalism) in a field that's very interesting, on the up and up, and does well while doing well. Clean energy has become big business and wind is the most efficient, most successful of them all. It's a very exciting time to be in this field.

"Work sucks . . ." (just to get back on topic) Indeed it can - I was literally rolling in shit today. Luckily plumbing is only part of what I do.
02.11.08 - 8:34 pm
Rollers, I can relate.
I used to work on boats-- mostly 12V stuff, but occasionally I got send to service the heads. Oh fun...
There's nothing like rolling around in super tight spaces covered in crap.
02.11.08 - 8:44 pm
I work in the computer lab at my campus' library. It's a pretty sweet job. I sit around, show people how to log in to the computers and get $10 an hour doing it. I can usually sneak in some studying on off hours as well, so it works out.
02.11.08 - 10:21 pm
I thought this was a "Work Sucks" thread. I am jealous of your job. My job sucks because I spend all day dealing with this on teh interwebz:

**Please see the "Not So Super Tuesday" thread**
02.12.08 - 2:29 pm
I still have morons too. One guy had to get me to explain how to insert footers in Word 2007....You go to "Insert", then you click on "Footer". WHAT IS THE DEAL.
That, and people don't read signs. If they read the signs we had, they wouldn't have to bother me about how to log in/print/wipe their butt/etc.
And there's this lady who gets mad when an old man enters the lab. She claims his body has something wrong with it and it makes her flash drive corrupted whenever he's in the room...
02.12.08 - 7:23 pm
I dont just ride bikes and play polo. Im a photographer/retoucher, though mostly just a retoucher, and now a barely employed retoucher who has had it up to here with the photo biz and Im this close to chucking it and getting into motion grafix! Tell me there's somebody in VFX who needs an ace Rida that knows Photoshop as well as he bikes and wants into the biz!

02.18.08 - 9:56 am
I am a full-time writer, webmaster, and IT tech for Buzznet.com, where 14 year old girls come to slam their fists on the keyboard every time they see Pete Wentz or Gerard Way.
I used to blog about social and political issues, but for the last 4 months, they've stuck me with running and managing the entire Movies page. So I review movies, go to press junkets, blog about movie news, blah blah blah. I also help run the community on the site, so every lucky so-and-so who has a problem comes to me.
I hate it sometimes, but it pays well and I basically get money to sit on the internet all day, so it's definitely not that bad.
02.18.08 - 10:39 am
I'm having a fucking meltdown here at work. I really need to find a new job.
Hopefully bananaphone is representing at LACM for the PMT-VITP tonight.

It takes an immature, selfish.... person with no respect or regards for anyone else to walk away from the toilet without making sure she flushed her seat cover. Remember that piece of paper was just on your behind and has your waist on it; surely you can take one quick look behind yourself and give the next woman the same courtesy you want.

hahah barleye. i love how she spelled waste.
i work at a talent agency and my boss books concerts internationally..i'm the 2nd assistant. i go to free concerts and love it. tonight i'm seeing the moody blues...random..but hey it's free!
03.11.08 - 2:33 pm
Free is the best flavor, the best word, the best idea. I get nothing for free at work. no water cooler, no coffee, nothing. I file half the day, and other half I spend on Midnight Ridazz.com. Well, I sorta have free time. I guess that's something for free. But, I'm still confined to the office, which is a giant converted warehouse with endless rows of cubicles. It's like the Matrix where Neo works. Just identical, cookie cutter cubicles filled with boring, mindless automatons. I am glad that I'm employed and compensated well with good benefits. Like anything in life, it's what you make of it, and how you choose to look at things. God, I'm bored, even with my iPod playing nine hours a day. I can't wait for the weekend. Is it 4:20 yet? I finish work at 4:30.
06.6.08 - 9:57 am
i work as a recruiter for Activision, recruiting for two of the studios they own, Treyarch and Luxoflux. We're working on 3 titles right now, James Bond's Quantum of Solace (movie in November), Spiderman 3: Web of Shadows and Call of Duty 5. It's a cool gig because it's helping people find work and the environment is relaxed.

i mean i'm not really a supervisor, in some ways i am. but i just like to make up really official names that sound fantastic.
06.6.08 - 11:37 am
I work from home most days but it sucks just as bad. My peers are back East so the day starts early. Can't really leave the house since I'm in meetings all day. On the upside, I can cook my own meals, work in my pajamas, and watch Jerry Springer.
06.6.08 - 12:00 pm
Ahhh yes, this thread...
My job hasn't changed since this started, well a bit, when this thread started I was an unemployed grad student, now I'm just plain unemployed.
I've been looking for work (pretty much anything where i won't go insane) for like 3 months or so now, maybe more, to no avail... probably doesn't help that I have a master's degree in art, which is tantamount to a masters in baloney...
Horray for having 30 dollars to your name and no foreseeable income in the future!

I work as a consultant for an environmental non-profit (Conservation International). I spend most of the day working on computer models to predict the effects of climate change on biodiversity. So I guess that makes me some kind of scientist. Since most of the people I work with are in Santa Barbara, I'll usually spend a couple days each week up there. It would be a sucky commute if I was driving, but fortunately, I can just ride down to Union Station, throw my bike on the train and go. Suckas on the freeway got no idea, I tell ya. When I'm in LA, I work from home, which I have become convinced is a great way to slowly drive yourself nuts. But I still prefer that to living in Santa Barbara. That place is pretty, but (to me, at least) it's unbelievably boring.
For the summer, I'm technically working for UCSB (health insurance = yes!), but doing pretty much the same thing as ever. In a previous life, I worked (indirectly) for NASA. It wasn't really for me, but my signature is now on Mars, my illegible scrawl immortalized in some microscopic etching alongside a thousand others. That's gotta be worth something.

I herd cats, in India and Israel. The cats in Israel will soon be put in a bag and drowned though.
Secretly, I dream of becoming a Michelin-rated chef.
