Well....lets see here....

I worked fast food for Wendy's and subway in highschool
Fuel desk manager at a truck stop
Air filtration cleaning crew for a couple of hospitals
Drywall hanging finishing texturing and sanding
painter
Industrial repair
Block masonry
Brick masonry
College-Computer and electronic engineering
ARMY- cannon fire direction control specialist
Auto mechanic
Manager of Jiffy Lube
Wal Mart distro dock worker
SIA- Suburu Isuzu Nissan injection molding "mold tech" and " material handler" and "machine technician"
Stripes sale associate (gas station attendant)
FOXCONN quality control technician ( if you have an HP made in 2011 I was one of 10 people that made sure the illegal immigrants put it together right)
..........Jesus OP, I have had like every job there is almost, I dont know if I can name them all, they are many, and span many different fields, I havent found a single one that doesnt want to suck the life out of me, so I dont stay long before leaving.

I bet I have 30 more to add honestly......... the modern work world is BULLS&*t.

Glad I am so talented, I always find work that wants me around, I am a good employee until they decide to try and make it " either us or your family, morals, values, ...etc....) At that point I just find other employment and leave them in the lurch like they deserve.

Work shouldnt cause one to have to question their job vs their morals, it is only a job, I never made anyone question their morals when they worked for me.

I am a quite beneficial employer, always sharing quite fairly all the burdens and boons of the job.

I have never kept over 1/2 of profits ever, not for any job, I have been the big boss man plenty of times.

If I own all the equipment, and know everything about the job, I take 1/2 to cover expenses, the employees always get the other 1/2 dispersed amonsgt them. Must be why every time I call they always answer and always say "yes I will be there at 5 AM tomorrow morning!!!!"

1979-1980 - Worked at McDonalds as a high school student
1981-1985 - Worked at the dormitory cafeteria while at university
1985-1987 - Taught Geography 101 (Physical geography) classes while in grad school
1985-2013 - Started a computer software company, went full time in 1987 after grad school, still there today

Yep, sad to say, I've been at the same job for almost 30 years now. Company has grown from two people to over 40. I expect to remain there until I retire in about ten years.

During that stretch I had a six month "sabbatical" when I went to do some consulting for one of the company's partners, and I dropped to a part time consultant status for two years when I went to do another startup (which is still in business, I just decided that being CEO wasn't for me.)

I've been a lot of different things, from a grocery store bagger and handyman apprentice in my teens, to a CIA student trainee for the FBIS (until the 91 coup in Russia ended that), security officer, to adult college student (finshed up degrees, got an MBA) to more project management roles for computer companies these days (while a muralist, cake decorator, and rancher on the side...I never realized how busy I can be
) Murals and cakes started out as a hobby just for family and friends. We don't get a lot of business doing these due to the economy (murals are expensive, and cakes, most wait till the last minute and go to a grocery store). The ranching is limited to boarding horses (and taking care of ours). We'll be adding some farming to the portfolio in August, and then some chickens next spring too.
