It's a part-time job, but I work at the movie theater near me (I'm always on the floor staff, so I clean auditoriums). Kinda awful because of our boss who screws up in so many ways.

 

There are plenty of perks to it, such as free movies, free movie posters (If there's enough), and employee showings where I can see a movie before even the midnight people. Saw Django Unchained a day earlier than everyone else thanks to that, and got to see it in the largest auditorium we got, which on opening day, it never got to go into (Because of Les Miserables).


Pretty cool perks i love movie posters

I was an assistant manager / head of projection at a movie theatre, for almost 4 years. I liked being a projectionist.. but I loved going in on Wednesday or Thursday nights and building up the movies (most theatres are digital now. I dealt with actual film.)

I'd then dry-run them after we closed. I got paid to watch movies. That perk and the free posters were great... some of the customers, not so much.

 

Some days I miss that job... some days.

My job title is "Product Support" for a fitness company.  Basically, I send replacement parts to customers and gyms like 24 Hour Fitness and Golds gym etc.  Sometimes repair broken gym machines.  Usually work 40-60 hours a week, but the days and weeks go by fast lol.

 

I'm thinking about going back to school for a career in medicine or something.  I wish I could do high school all over again lol.

 

edit:  I forgot that I used to work for Sony in Rancho Bernardo CA.  It was short-lived and I was straight out of high school.  It had nothing to do with video games but I was in an assembly line building VIAO computers.  The 45 minute freeway drives was hell lol.

I'm still in high school, so I don't really count, but my passion (and future career for sure) is making video games.

Construction, mostly labor work until I learn welding, which is my future career.

Who knows, im in boxing right now and im loving it, maybe ill be a professional boxer sometime in my life, though, I doubt it. I would rather be in MMA than boxing if I had to pick a fight sport for my career..

Boxing, huh? That's something I wanted to get into. Not as a career, but for fitness. Maybe I still will.

 

Right now I'm unemployeed. Just finished my first schoool year in university. I do need to find work for the summer though. I'm planning on getting a major in computer science and then hopefully get into the games industry. Of course my ideal place of employment would be Naughty Dog or Santa Monica Studios, but who knows if that'll happen.
