    I'm 16, and I work at burger king and am the Production Leader, where I get paid the exact same as eveyrone else at 7.16, highest minimum in the country, but i get to boss mofo's around all day long though.

    This summer, I get to take up in my dad's siding company and I'll just do side/scrap jobs and make 10.50 under the table. And then next summer, I get my apprenticeship at a big architectual engineering firm when I start school.

    :worthy: :worthy:


    :repostred: I think we had one like this just as I got here in August...but times have changed.

    I'm a delivery guy now for East of Chicago Pizza...it's fun as hell, people give you bigger tips when it's snowing and cold as fuck. :lol:

    I'm trying to find a full time job but nothing I've found thus far is worth my time.


    As far as education: I have my Diploma and four months of DOS programming and Computer networking classes from Ivy Tech & two years of minor networking setups including setting up DSL, routers, small networks and telephone systems under my belt. I loved that field... I miss it... :( but I don't miss working for my dad. :)

    May I ask what a bit more is?

    I'm just curious what starting pay is for an engineer, because my old man tells me the firms he does business with would be giving me somewhere around 60 for architectual engineering and design type stuff.

    I manage a paint store. It sucks but its a stepping stone and I get to learn how to manage a business on someone elses dime. I am 23 with a BS in Entrepreneurship.
    I plan on having my business up and running within the next month in the real estate market. My dream would be to make enough $$$ off of it to buy my house, an m3, bike, new truck (I just bought one but I got rearended and need a new truck that hasnt been hit) and newer boat.
