Personally, this past week has probably been one the better weeks for this semester. I finally got my dream job as a worker for GameStop. Over the years I’ve had different jobs and they were not the best. In total, I’ve had seven jobs…well including GameStop makes seven.
I want to start off with my first job at a restaurant called People’s. I applied as a bus boy and it was fun at first, since it was my first job. We had one location till they made the second one. I didn’t mind driving 15 minutes from my house to work, but when I got sent to the new location everything was just crazy. They opened with five bus boys and we didn’t have any tables so they got mad at everyone for not being busy. I ended up getting sick one day and I called and told them and they never got back to me; they also didn’t tell me when I had to work again so I never went back.
My second job was at Whataburger and I liked the job. I worked with a buddy of mine named Riccardo (he was my manager and we went to high school together). Well I only worked there for three months due to getting accepted to college over here in Kingsville, so I ended up putting my two weeks in.
My third job would be my first retail job and that was Journey’s. Journey’s was fun I was a seasonal worker that became a part-time worker to almost becoming a manger – but since I was going to college that didn’t happen. I stayed with the company for a year and was let go without any reason. I literally walked in and was given a handshake.
My fourth job was at Spencer’s and I only stayed for a whole two months. I was seasonal and they had let everyone go but I could return but I didn’t want to.
My fifth job was on campus as the Manager for the editing room inside Manning hall. That job was fun and all but I was also given another the job for The South Texan that I took. The job was to help students with editing film or even just having them pick up a camera.
The sixth job is my current job as the Ad Manager for The South Texan. The job itself comes with a lot of responsibilities. If I don’t have ads in for Monday it does affect the entire crew on how much they need to write for their pages. The only thing I don’t like is the rejection from businesses for ads, like the businesses we have for the paper are amazing to be honest.
The last job which is a job I just got is GameStop, and man do I love it. I’ve been trying to work there for five years now and now that I have the job it does make me happy.
Honestly I can’t say anything that is wrong since I’ve loved everything so far. with this job.
