Those of you who are employed, what do you do for work?

What is your job title?
What are your responsibilities?
How many hours do you work?

Where have you worked in the past?

Cleaner

Going around making sure the buses are clean on the inside, and swept or mopped. I'm not the only cleaner, there are 2 others.

Evenings (it's part-time). Generally not weekends.

At a nursing home, but it wasn't what I wanted to do. I only took it because I needed a job and that was the only one that come up and they were willing to employ me. I enjoy what I do now though.

I'm a lawyer but work as an intern.

I mostly go to mediator's meetings (but what i'm going to say is very much rehearsed each time) go to the courthouse (bailiff's office mostly) whenever we receive money, prepare legal drafts( Though they're very short in our office so i don't have much problem) and sometimes attend court hearings (again, i don't even talk much in those, its very much rehearsed stuff)

I can't say i am good at this job as it's very fast paced, requires multitasking and a lot of instinctual learning without anyone showing you how to do things. I'm planning to quit soon though since my employer isn't satisfied with my efforts and even recently asked me if i have a "problem" and to see a psyciatrist. That was the last straw for me since i also work 45 hours a week and am literally always tired.

I am the service manager for a company that does alarms, audio/video systems and home automation. I have been with them for 11 years.

I repair and sometimes install systems, log and ensure that customers are contacted when they call the office as well as find solutions for our technicians when they have exausted their resources.

I am good with the technical aspects of the industry, bit I struggle with communication with both customers and employees. Sometimes offending people without realizing it. This is becoming more and more of a problem as the years go by.

In the past I have had many jobs. Meat cutter, helper for a mason, Kennel tech, landscaper ect. I never really found my place.

I'm a data entry operator for a criminal justice entity, 35 hours a week. I am a civil servant. Been doing the job for 38 1/2 years.

I have to be somewhat circumspect about my duties---since there is some confidentiality which comes with my job.

I also work in a college library as a circulation clerk, part time, 20 hours a week. Been doing this job 2 years. Have contact with students and with faculty. Have to "present myself well."

Previously, I was a messenger, clerk/typist, order-picker and (as an adolescent), paperboy and delivery boy.

I am a nurse.

I work as a private duty nurse for an agency providing extended care skilled nursing to individuals (most of my patient have been children) in their homes. I stay with one client for 8 hours a day. I monitor patients for any changes in their health which is part of my assessment, give medication, do certain treatments if necessary, assist with daily activities of living, and anything else that is on the client's care plan. One of my clients has a tracheostomy, so I change his trache and provide trache care.

TL;DR- I provide skilled nursing care for individuals in their homes.

Previously I was a nurse's aide before and a short time after finishing nursing school. I worked in elderly people's home providing companionship, and assisted them with light house keeping, meal preparation, and taking them to appointments.

I'm a horticulturist. In other words, a gardener who gets paid for gardening work. I plant flowers, shrubs, trees, ornamental grasses, pretty much any plant. I then care for the plants, making sure they get enough water, and then make sure there are no weeds, trash or other unwanted things in the areas where I've planted.

I'm employed by a country club, and I also do similar work for free for a local non-profit who provides services and employment opportunities for younger autistic adults. I work 40 hours a week, sometimes a bit more if needed.

Before that, I worked in the financial industry, specifically for a company that provides retirement savings programs and mutual funds. After about 20 years in that industry, I burned out 8O
