Best job you ever had......

Bartending was mine..... ...I did it for 3 years.

Free booze
Cash EVERY night.
Free food
Free booze
Good company....most of the time...
Free booze


One problem, I would waste half of the tips I made that night after my shift was over, when the rest of the bartenders or servers would go to another bar...

I can totally relate - I worked at a pub in London for a short while while I was going to university there and the customers always bought us drinks which we were allowed to drink - the barstaff was always trashed by the end of the evening - the pub closed at 11:00 and we all went to another bar that was open later to continue drinking

I worked at a beer distributor for a couple of years. Little responsibility, good people to work with, and lots of beer.

Working the parking lot at the beach during the summers off from school.

A typical busy summer day went like this:

Arrive at 8am
Parking lot fills up by 10am
Lounge in the sun rest of day

'Twas very fun...

DJ. I did it part time for a few years then went full time. I worked for a couple of companies based out of London, who installed sound and light equipment, mostly in 5 star hotels, and rotated DJ’s ever 6 months. I worked all over Europe, Scandinavia and the Middle East. I did that for all of the 80’s (my 20’s), then I spent 3 years in SE Asia working out of the Singapore office. Brilliant job (back when everything was curable!)

When I first arrived in the States I did some morning radio work too.

Best jobs - Ever.

I like the job I have now. Every other Friday off, flex hours, work at my own pace, work 9 hour days for the AFO and good benefits. I'm happy.

I love my job that I'm doing right now. The benefits are great, my boss is fun to work with, it's always busy and there's room for growth.

Sounds like a trip.



Best job I've ever had? I'd say the one previous to this current one. I still see my friends/former co-workers almost daily, and they were the best part of the job, so I can't really complain.

I do enjoy my current job, but the most fun I ever had was when I was working as an events coordinator. Planning parties for people with large budgets was always a blast!

My favourite client was a mom who was throwing her 6 yr old daughter a b-day party. Her budget was $10 grand!! That was the most fun I've ever had running an event. It was a costume party, and since I was overseeing everything, I was there as the fairy godmother. Man, that was incredible. I need to go back and find some of the pictures. There was everything from bouncy houses, slides, clowns, balloons, a DJ, food, the list goes on and on. You name it, we had it.

It was just so unbelievable that someone would spend $10 grand for a little kid's birthday party. Let's just say this family was psychotically wealthy.

Those were some good times!
