View Full Version : So...what's your job title?

08-06-2006, 07:46 AM
I figured we could use this thread as somewhat of a directory for everybody to get an idea of who everyone else is and what they do as a job. This is aimed especially for the lurkers who aren't real addicts to the site...not yet at least! :wave:

I think this may be helpful since so many times we'll create a thread about a Sucky Customer or the like, and tell a story without first establishing what we do as a job, or career. It will make stories easier to understand if we all know what each other does beforehand! :D

You can also post your name or other interesting things about you. I guess i'll start!

I'm Chris, 17 years old, and work as a crew member for Wendy's fast-food :angel:

warehouse supervisor in a hardware store is my official title, but I also wear the hat of troubleshooter and inventory control and tech support and advice giver and 'the one who will do it if nobody else can figure it out or nobody else wants to do it' :p

I also used to work at a couple of grocery stores.
I was a cashier and also a deli manager there.

Retired :lol:

But before the retirement, manager for software design and lead programmers. I still don't know which are most SC folks who are talk about here or the folks I had to deal with for months while their software was being designed and created.

My stories are mostly about my days as a Kinko's employee. I worked there on two separate gigs, one about 8 years ago as a color and specialty person (color copies, t-shirts, oversize color, coffee mugs, mounts and lamination, etc) and then again about a year ago as a cashier/order-taker.

I also post stories about being:

A waitress at the Olive Garden
A master control operator/studio camera operator at WOLO TV25
A studio crew member and sometime production coordinator in public television
a zoo employee
a photo lab technician

Right now I have a nice graphic design job with NO CUSTOMERS! But I have paid my dues, believe me. ;)

I will soon be a "contracting call centre representative"

but I have been a sales assistant, picker and packer, checkout operator, dance teacher.

If anyone has questions about crafts, collectables or a certain purple and orange shipping company (confidentiality) feel free to ask me!

In the past, I've been a "Shift Manager" at McDonald's.

08-06-2006, 09:27 PM
depends on the position I'm on at the time. Usher, projectionist, concession/box office attendent. My favourite is projectionist, because I get to stay away from all the customers, and work mostly on my own pace (Except for starting the shows on time :D ).

Deli Bakery manager for a large grocery chain.

I'm a Shift Supervisor. Before that I was a clerk/cashier. I'm still a basically a clerk, but now they trust me with keys. :p

08-07-2006, 04:41 AM
I am a parking attendant for a sports arena. I either direct traffic, take VIP or suite passes, or cashier at the entrances. It's a very easy job because we get paid to sit around but there are plenty of SCs.

08-07-2006, 04:54 AM
I am a video store clerk.

Boss's daughter.

Alright, secretary, but most of the customers either know I'm his daughter or can guess. I've also been a security officer, which is laughable to see me.

Cashier right now, but I've also been described as a shop assistant and stable worker in the other jobs I've had.

I'm a library assistant in a further education college. My official title is long and bureaucratic ("Library Resource Centre Bibliographics and Circulation Assistant/Moron Liaison Officiator", or something equally meaningless), but I am occasionally known as the "sticker monkey", which should give you an idea of the value placed on my job.

Not that I'm bitter.

Er, yes. Anyway, I have also been an ear-piercing specialist (read: staple gun operator) for Claire's Accessories, and a keyholder in a business called Crappy Ripoff Ethnic Furniture Store (that may not be exactly right, now I think of it), which sold badly made tables marked up by about a million percent and attracted some of the rudest people I have ever encountered.

08-07-2006, 03:02 PM
Currently my title is "Benefits Specialist," and I work for a small insurance administrator. Unofficially, I'm also the resident webmistress, low-level computer geek, tech writer/editor, and whatever else they care to throw at me.

In previous lives, I was a waitress, proofreader, HR/payroll flunky and secretary/receptionist for more years than I'd care to cop to. ;)

08-07-2006, 08:54 PM
Office Manager and Corporate Secretary/Treasurer.

08-08-2006, 01:01 PM
i'm a cheese specialist

08-08-2006, 01:19 PM
I get the laughable honour of being termed "senior sales" in an independant bookshop, even more laughable when you consider that there are only 3 people working the shop floor, one of them's the manager, one of them's the saturday kid, and the other one's me :lol: I also get to wear the "technician/web-designer/computer gimp" hat for no extra pay. Go me! :D

I'm a secretary for a non-profit university.

My title is Secretary, Arts & Sciences. I work in the Deans' office, and I love it!! Best job I've ever had.

Previously, I worked for Gateway for 6 years. Started as a Customer Service Rep, then became an Admin Assistant for a year, then on to being Team Coach, and finally Web Order Managment. Then I got laid off, and couldn't be happier that it happened!

Optical Assistant/Accounts Receivable.

08-09-2006, 05:51 PM
It's not a job title as such, more like a description

"The one to call if your department needs help, never mind the fact that maybe she's alone in her own department and it's a mess."

But that's too long to fit on a name tag, isn't it?

I am a Senior Certified Pharmacy Wench at the Pharmacy America Trusts.

I'm really good at smacking the Yuyama dispensing machine around when it gets stuck, too.
