Recommended Posts

I'll reply to this in June when I start my first ever full time job. In an office, but doing something I love.

Figure out what gets you through the day and repeat for the next 50 years. And stay away from office politics and back stabbers

^that.

 

Im 30+ (with girlfriend). 9-5, well I usually go in at 7 to get ahead for the day, or depending on the week, so I can stay afloat. Seems like a lot of people at my work are fairly religious or full on right wing. Only a few will have a drink after work, if its Friday. I dont have a lot in common with most. I just keep my head down and do my thing.

So in order to not kill myself I play hockey twice during the week in a beer league. Rotating beer schedule, and some fun on the ice. I skate with doctors, lawyers, mechanics etc. Because of this Ive got friends/connections of all types in my community, and numerous times its helped me out at work.

Plus Im not being a fat ass, sitting on my couch smoking a bowl playing playstation after work.

Trust me, playing a rec sport during the week helps.

didnt read replys, but...

 

learn to take shits on the clock and take your time

 

now you have to be able to separate "co-workers" and "friends"... sometimes there can be both but mostly not.

 

just do your 8 and skate. extra voluntary shit is for chumps

 

dont work too hard or too good right away. other employees may think youre trying to make them look bad and try to fuck shit up for you

 

as others have said keep busy after work to keep from going crazy. comedy clubs can be pretty good.

 

and ALWAYS, ALWAYS, remember to be careful what you say in the bathroom. the walls have ears. dont wanna be taking shit about someone and they are shitting. it sounds like common sense but youd be surprised.

 

 

i dont work in an office, but i pull 40-60 hr wks/ 5-7 days with a bunch of dudes that are as old/ older than my dad. this is what has worked for me

I don't know. We're all different, but I see some of my staff spend more energy and stress trying to get out of doing work rather than just doing the fuckin' job. I cannot relate to the mentality of slacking off so you don't make other people look bad? How bad does your job have to be if that's even a thought bubble during the day!?

eh i can only speak on my own experience

i have had an issue with it at my job and so have other younger employees i know.

 

when you got a bunch of older dudes who have been doing the same thing for longer than ive been alive and then i come in and start doing the job in half the time they do, thats the mentality they get

 

ive mentioned this to an older family friend and he said he had the same experience while working in a factory years and years ago

 

maybe just a blue collar problem?

I think it spans both the blue and white collar spectrums, but either way it's very petty.

I can definitely see it happening. Especially in a factory situation, where this is how it's done, for that's how we've always done it mentality.

 

I'd just be so bored. You spend most of your life at work, doing it on some sort of 'go slow' setting would just tear me up.

Mistakes ive made over the years in the work force...Listen kids...

 

1. Do not fuck co-workers, no matter how tempting..It Always ends badly, yea the sexual tension with the girl in QC is so thick you could spread it on your morning toast..Forget it..

2. Do not tell anyone about your herbals and drug use, even drug users have ambition and will throw you under the bus to make you disappear.

3. See Number 1.

4. For the most part, showing up on time, drug and alcohol free will be enough to keep MOST jobs..The rest will fall into place.

5. See Number 1.

that part was mostly just til they got a feel for me and knew i was an ok guy

i still kinda work at a slower pace but thats mostly just to keep from burning out, or getting hurt, or breaking something, or losing a tool... all kinds of shit happens when you are in too much of a hurry.

 

even then most times its a 'hurry up and wait' situation anyway

 

today i did about 30 mins of work in an 8 hour shift

all because i had to stand by for someone else to finish their job so i can start mine

you guys got some actual advice, damn. i keep my head down. don't get involved in office gossip or politics at all cause thats bitchmade shit.

 

i've been thinking about sports, some I used to play in HS. i'm trying to get a job back in philly, honestly ... @drue's post - we fucking suck at what we do (he knows) and our industry was casually shoehorned into a different kind of business, it's bullshit.

 

thanks guys.

I work an office job for a software startup company. I put in about 40 hours a week, and this job does not have anything to do with my degrees. I however, really like it because it affords me the opportunity to indulge in my other hobbies/extracurricular activities. Its a stable job with benefits and I stunt on my friends who have weak ass jobs.

 

My word of advice, work and play can and should be separated. Take an active role in doing what makes you happy outside of work, it reflects a positive demeanor when you are at your actual job.
