I have an interview scheduled and for some reason, 4 separate people are interviewing me…

Like shit man, I just want a job to slack off and it looks like this is a serious job where I can't just slack off and go unnoticed.

I'm scared wizzies. I've never had an interview like this. It was always 1 on 1 before this and it was always laid back and casual.

What do I do? It looks like I'm going to call it off because the pay isn't even worth this hassle and workload.

It's probably not a very serious job, just a bullshit one with unbearable conditions where they treat and control you like cattle for a minimum wage. Unless you're in a tight spot, just search for a better one.

Also, watch them force you to go through all them interviews and then not even pick you lol.

I really like my current part time job just picking up those garbage bags you find spread out around town. I get my own diesel van and I'm given a free reign to just go around town driving, picking up trash and just being out in the sun but left alone.

New Zealand minimum wage is like $21.20 an hour, which is like $12-15 burgerbux. But like, the median is only between 25-30. We're also not as rich as Americans so minimum wage here equalizes basically the entire lower class on the same level.

American wages are very high I've noticed.

New Zealand is expensive as fuck, that is why minimum wage is so high there.

America has the cheapest food and supplies because America grows its own food and has a huge surplus of food and supplies to go around.

Land here is also easy to come by, so it's easier for companies to build really big stores and for their shipping trucks to easily access these stores.

I developed seborrheic dermatitis a couple of weeks ago. My first thought was that it was dead skin built up on my scalp - if I ran my fingernail over it, plenty of what looked like dead skin cells came up. I washed and washed for around a week every single day, sometimes multiple times a day, still kept happening. My thought process was that I had been washing improperly or something, while in reality oils were being released and immediately scabbing over and matting my hair in the same places I'd washed them off. I washed and scraped and scrubbed so hard that I had blood spots all over my scalp like I'd cut myself shaving. I went so far as to cut my relatively long-length hair very short hoping it would solve the issue altogether since there was less hair to be matted. But now it's even more noticeable because the dermatitis is outright visible on an almost bald head.

I feel very self conscious and watched when not at home, especially so at work. There's nothing I'm aware of to combat this constant overbearing neurosis so I'm just feeling like shit for my entire shift every day. It stresses me out a lot to have to deal with this.

I don't hold a positive view of norcs. But I still suffer from feeling very watched and examined. Like I stand out because I have a scabby head and I am seen as lesser for it. In reality I'm sure nobody gives a fuck or even notices but there is some cognitive dissonance at work, I know on a basic level I'm just insecure but it doesn't change how I feel. I fucking hate this warped brain of mine

All this corporate culture makes me want to puke, the diversity, the linkedin shit, the hypocrisy, having to pretend that being a wageslave for the rest of your life is the best thing that could ever happen.

Its like people forgot that having a job was just a way to put food on the table, people 150 years ago just did their fucking jobs because they had to eat and went home, they had none of this "networking" or "soft skills" bullshit.

Art doesn't earn you shit anywhere tbh, success as an artist is based on things such as your work ethic, likeability and luck but not on your location (especially in todays age of unlimited self publishing options).

Trying to make a living with art is usually a bad decision that will just burn through your time, so you are making the right decision by pursuing other plans to make money as well.

Could I in theory get in trouble with the law or get sued (in the US) by a company for spamming Keemstar saying "Nigger" on a 10 hour loop bass boosted on the walkie-talkie main channel that all my co-workers use to communicate with each other at my workplace? Was planning to do this on my last day in this shitty grocery store job out of spite of this shitty company and watch these annoying wagecuck faggots who shit talk behind my back(especially the managers) along with the fat conSOOMER NPC normgroid customers have a meltdown.

I've been working as a contractor for about a month now, but didn't remember that this work vent thread existed until today because I'm so ready to quit. Took the day off because I'm so goddamn exhausted. My coworkers are all druggie assholes and 40 somethings that blame everything on autistic millennials, so I'm basically the punching bag of the group. It keeps getting hotter and hotter on the roof, and my patience for stupidity is dwindling at a rapid rate. I don't even get paid well either, just a little above minimum wage. The one reason why I don't just up and quit, is the same reason why I could never be a NEET; I hate sitting around and doing nothing. Despite being a chanposter, I'm not a professional ass sitter. It's not like it was back then, the internet depresses me more than real life. I guess another small reason why I'll continue working, is the fact that the work environment isn't professional. Everyone I work with are all social recluses and bald headed 10 times divorced sleazebags that don't have any filter. When I was 17, my father "helped" me apply for SSI, and put autism down as my excuse, not knowing that everyone in America wants autism bux. Fast-forward to today and I still don't have monthly sperg cash. So basically, I don't get free government money because there's too many autists, and I can't work in an office because I'm too awkward and weird. I guess this thread's my new home now.

Legally they can charge you with harassment if they can prove that it's you. The forbidden word would probably invoke some sort of hate-crime amplification of the harassment charge as well.

You'd be able to get around the security cameras by wearing a mask and some second-hand clothes (get rid of the clothes and mask afterwards). If a cop tries to talk to say nothing, just tell them that it's your policy not to speak to the police without your lawyer present.

 No.261218

There are plenty of legal issues that come to mind, it would be disrupting the business and it's communication and get people exposed to profanity and racism which is most likely harassment as well and since it's about the N word it might lead to some hate speech issue on top of that.

There is also a high chance of getting caught and to avoid this you'd have to take measures that are definitely not worth the time just to fuck with your old workplace.

I suggest you don't do it since it's not worth getting sued over something that won't matter to you in a couple months and its also a waste of your time.

This was my plan. The issue is that the area to retrieve the walkies from are in the front room where everyone goes to clock in/out and the HR desk and manager offices are also right there. Even if I'm wearing a cap and mask I could easily raise suspicion or someone could still probably recognize me, though they wouldn't be able to prove my identity without solid any evidence, and if I'm caught beforehand and I'm still masked there's nothing they can really do outside of kicking me out of the store.

I don't particularly want to go back to my job since it's a new job and I'm not particularly good at it. If I go though, I can get better at the job and it'll be easier in the long run. Still, I have a lot of trepidation to go back where I might fail. I'd hate to fail harder than expected and get fire. I guess that is life. I could also totally be over exaggerating because the guy who trained me was less green to the field before. He had experience in something similar, but not anything what we were doing. He probably would have had to learn more than I'm learning now.

Mask policies at companies have now become the modern equivalent of Sumptuary laws. Maybe it's just my country because we went through the stuff later, but like yeah, there's a clear class delineation appearing with the policy.

>upper management in their areas are allowed to go about without masks, only putting it on when they walk through the pleb area

>Middle management commissar is a full on mask cuck, every waking second, never even seen half of their faces. The second he sees someone lower than him in the rank he flips out
>lower wagies have to wear masks.
>older people without much willpower always end up caving, even if they could get away with not wearing one.


I go between different companies at work and it's this dynamic 50% of the time for large businesses. These little commissars refuse to even address the double standard when it's pointed out to them, they just go "it doesn't matter what X is doing, the rules are….". Even when you press the issue they side-skirt the obvious hypocrisy and just repeat on record "these are the rules".

After tasting that bit of freedom, I swore to myself that I would rather quit than ever go back to normal. Thankfully my boss isn't pushy on this, but still occasionally there are "in-person meetings" that I never attend and always make up some kind of excuse. I will never go back to that shit.

Not even a change in absolute productivity, just so often asleep/offline during the day and doing different amounts of work from one day or week to the next that all the anal-retentive management types get their panties in a bunch.

I guess it depends on how its implemented. If you're working with people from a different time zone or have flexible hours, I can see how it can get out of hand. I still work the exact same office hours just from home, we announce ourselves in a group chat when we sign-in and sign-off, as well any long breaks if people have errands to run or they're sick for the day. We also have a morning meeting at the same time and its a nice point of orientation because you feel like the day has really started.

Going to the office has zero benefit for me. Only thing I miss are the fast food joints that were super close by and I could stuff my face every day.

This question gets asked every thread. Anyone can learn how to code, but it's a different story whether you can stomach doing it professionally because it's just hours and hours of tinkering with code.

Coding isn't hard. It's something the human brain isn't really wired to find interesting so people lose focus and hate it. It's why most normals despise it, and why the industry is filled with weirdo autistic crossdressing trannies. it requires intense focus on something that's hard to focus on. The reason people are saying "I get paid $120,000 a year and only work 4 hours a day lol" isn't because the job is that lax, it's because that's you can do mentally until your focus goes.

It's also why it's very easy to burn out. The brain isn't wired to do that shit, it's like contorting your body in the wrong way, but mentally. And many start ups will try to push you to the point where you do burn out with unrealistic work schedules.

The comfiness is definitely overstated online. The actual comfy job is working IT helpdesk at something like a public library or a hospital, where you have a few jobs to clear a day and can fuck around. But you only get paid like $40,000 a year for a job like that.

That's what I said, most companies dont require you to develop a cutting edge technology or a new optimized alghoritm or a game engine. Most jobs are things that anyone with a boot camp can achieve.

Theres special people at every business that can do things most normal people can't do, same in programming, but that doesnt mean you have to be very intelligent to be a programmer, I would say that anyone who is not genuinely retarded can do it, the same as anyone who is not retarded can do most things decently after practice.

You can't escape the social bullshit because you're working with people. The higher paid the job, the more expectation that you are able to navigate social spaces correctly, at the very least being presentable to others and being able to communicate. It's pretty clear why employers might prefer LinkedIn because it tells a bigger story than just a black-and-white resume. Even a fake LinkedIn persona tells a story that you are at least conscious of how you should present yourself, even if the facts aren't all perfectly aligned. Part of what tech companies are selling to clients these days is that all of their workers are enthusiastic, passionate people.

It's only going to get worse as we connect every part of our lives to the Internet and employers will be able to filter more and more undesirables simply by visiting their social media (or lack their of).

Been working at this warehouse job for 10 months now. I'm almost 22 and this has been the first real job I've ever after coming out of being a neet for 2 half to 3 years after high school. The hours are good, 40 hour week 8 and half hour days and overtime available if needed. I'm not forced to do it either which is nice for now. Basically I just packaged shit together and out it on shelfs or pallets.

Or at least that's what they have me doing for the past 7 months since the department I'm actually supposed to be in has no work so they had to move us all around. Orginally when I got there there was 6 people including me. Now there's only 3 including myself again. One guy was a bam margaria like meth head and the other two just stop showing up for work. The meth head head guy tweaked out and started a fight outside the food truck during lunch and got fired after that. Apparently he was sleeping on the job while he was made a custodian since they all moved us into other things. Basically gave him bitch work I guess. He was making tents outside to sleep in during his hours inside the pallet walls stacked outside.

Besides that it's been same old shit. I only got the interview was because my dad knew the guy in HR , I guess they liked me enough. Hope everyone is making it through especially the autism wagies like me just trying to blend in so thye don't think I'll shoot up the warehouse. Anyway im sitting here watching the sun go down before I head home for tomorrow's wage day. I got a raise aswell making 17 US a hour instead of 16 US. Funny enough I've been coming in late but I'm fixing that so I don't get fired. Anyone else have any warehouse storys to tell?

Continued

I'm starting to feel what's it's like to be a wagie in a cage. Although as much as it nice have some money in the bank I don't care about anything else,I'm scared of being a wagie the rest of my life. Hopefully one day I'll have enough money saved to quit and just live in some van or rv and be a hermit. That's my dream at least for now because home ownership seems out the window. I'm living with my dad and his girlfriends three little kids who moved in with us and my brother who comes over sometimes.

There fine but it just feels embarrassing mostly due to western propaganda of young people being uncool while living with family after education. At least I dont have college debt compared to ot others having to pay ass to back payments. I had a distaste for waging every since I was little. I wanted to be a monk or a hermit who tended to his garden and then walked to the market to get what he needed and then say hello to the other villagers. I'm at least starting to exercise to get my mental strength better and so I don't kill myself from boredom.

I've been trying to get transfered to metal shop so eventually if I look for a metal fabricator job I can write down that I have work experience in it and them find a better paying job. It feels hopeless to even pester on because there's no rotation avaliable. I can't even have earbuds and listen to podcast or music i had to having i plsying from my lhone speaker which sucks because of course since one guy wasn't paying attention and got caught watching movies we all have to suffer. Fucking bullshit that the excuse was that we can't have them on while operating "heavy equipment" but the equipment I use is just a tape gun to tape up boxes all day. Now I can't even watch movies myself to make the day go by faster like I used to. Hopefully things get better I just gotta keep dragging myself to find goals for my mental heath. Mostly by reading more books and like stated before excersisng.

I genuinely hope so, they told me I would get into some kind of boot camp to "enhance programming skills" before getting into real projects, I was expecting the practical interview to be a nightmare that would get me rejected but it was quite easy (complete a method that returns the biggest number from an array of numbers) thats something that appeared many times before in the YT programming videos I watched while studying programming in college.

- company A gives me a job offer but its mediocre and the company is boring. i know if i accept it every day working there will be hell. the manager tries to rush me into literally signing the contract tomorrow which is a huge red flag. i know that if i work there ill hate my job and probably end up burning out again. he was also quick to emphasize that it would be full time which is not what i want.
- company B is excited about me. oh so excited! i talk to HR who assures me the team are interested and will speak to me soon. weeks pass and nothing comes of it. it was for a role i was really interested in and a genuinely good fit for. i put the shit companies offer on hold to wait for more info but I wasn't going to accept it anyway.
- company C is promising. their engineer wants to work with me and if it was up to them id be hired. but the company has 'no official open positions' and the engineer is unsure if he can offer me anything but he's 'going to ask.' i havent heard back on this yet.
- company D's team is stellar. lots of big names and from prestigious places you've heard of. they have a good business plan. i tell them im still doing interviews but get the sense that this immediately made them lose interest and pass on me.

so far ive been lied to, ghosted, and strung along. if this is the way these places treat new people considering working there then i can only imagine what terrible places they are to work at. all i want is for people to respect my time and stick to their word. but so far all ive found is a bunch of well paid assholes.

losing motivation to keep looking for jobs.

I'm starting my first job on Monday at age 27. I have to sit in a small office in a warehouse and process orders and create labels. It's a small business with 1 laborer guy and 1 boss who hardly ever shows up, the boss wants me to do his admin work while he goes around on meetings or whatever it is bosses do.
I will also occasionally have to be on the phone with 5 succubi who work in a nearby office so that will be fun (it won't be fun) but thankfully I never have to physically see them or go anywhere near them.
Apparently they're all really stupid and bad at their jobs, and I've seen them on the phone with the boss where they fucking waffle endlessly but of course the boss loves to waffle along. With me I think I'll get to the point and give canned lines, and they won't be happy about it but whatever.
I don't know how I passed the interview. He asked me if I had any experience, anywhere and I said no. Then he turned it around and actually said "no experience is actually a positive in some cases because you won't have learnt any bad habits".
I start for real on monday but I have to go in for the rest of this week to learn the ropes.
I'm already mourning the loss of my freedom but at least it will be easy work I hope. It's only 10 minutes walk away too. 7-5pm. Honestly it's probably the best thing I could ever hope for, I just hope I won't have to do any hard labor like helping out the lad in the stockroom.

But this is a modern society where there is an entire class of white collar people getting paid four times as much as you, doing like three hours of work a day in an office.

Newly hired junior Software Engineer here, I will use this thread to vent.

Got this job by accident, I didn't want it but my parents pressured me into applying, I did it convinced that they would reject me but alas, I got hired along with another 50 people with much better skills than me, today I ended my first week of training out of 8.

Whoever told you that this job was great for wizards because you can write code by yourself without being bothered either is very lucky or a liar, there's is a fuckton of socializing in these jobs nowadays, you are expected to work on a team, you're supposed to attend meetings, you're supposed to get along with your coworkers so they don't feel "demoralized" and ruin the entire project, is awful, very tiring and full of normalfags, also with this retarded "succubi on IT" shit they're fucking forcing succubi to get a lot of jobs so they will force horrible Karen's with barely any skills and force you to team up with them.

The job itself is not that bad but working is a pain that leaves you with very little free time, the only thing that is keeping me going is some vague promise about switching to hybrid after training ends, if that's not happening then I'm out.

>very lucky or a liar

I was very lucky to have my first job be in a small company with 10 other guys that didn't push all of the agile and trendy shit and we just focused on good old fashioned software development. We'd have a lot of freedom in how we did things and didn't need lots of meetings except to discuss big picture stuff. That made me think that this profession really could be quite wizard-friendly.

Several years later and I'm now working for a much bigger company and there's just layers of teams and people that each handle their own little piece of the pie. This creates the need to constantly have meetings and coordinate and manage work with tickets and write documentation and if something breaks down the pipeline, you're now in a chat with the guy that manages the production server etc.

It's just so tiring. I get much less actual work done and I generally feel like crap because of these forced interactions. Sometimes I get a nice ticket to work on and its just an entire day of coding without anyone bothering me and the project manager has to pick up his kid or whatever so he cancels the meetings for that day and it's just so…I miss it so much, just programming without all the bullshit on top of it.

Keep looking wizzie. My resume is quite decent and I don't just spam out generic cover letter shit. I don't have a degree so I get filtered out a lot by HR roasties. But if you have a degree its a lot easier to at least get interviews.

I have a good like 8 years in my industry and it still took me a while to get an offer I actually wanted. I know there are spoiled tech normalfags who will gloat about how they got 12 FAANG offers in 2 weeks. But they'll also usually have an ivy league school on their resume and have been spoonfed the latest crap like AI by a professor in the area. So these retards are basically rich brats that are just handed everything (that's how it looks to me looking at what resumes got them the offers.)

We've just got to keep going. Took me like 6 months. But I wasn't looking the entire time. I honestly think this is the worst economy I've so far been alive to apply for jobs in. Salaries and perks are also a bit lower. I noticed like a 20k drop in average salary for my area which usually pays quite well. I believe you can get a good job wizzie. Just got to keep doing the soul destroying work of applying.

It really varies a lot. At a FinTech company I worked at the customer support engineers worked insanely hard. They had a quota of tickets to fill out and I saw people getting fired for not keeping up.

Some tech jobs are comfy. Most if not all expect you to ship often though. My advice for the kinds of posters from this site is don't bother to get a tech job you're not passionate about. The reason is: the work is just too difficult. You can work long hours and have a lot of responsibility.

If you're working for a company who is doing something you think is really cool and their engineering process actually gives you control over your work then you're going to wake up feeling energised as fuck. A good process will empower you to do your best work. A bad process will get in the way of you doing it. I really don't think many people from here would be capable of holding down a tech job long-term if they hate it from the start. That's an easy way to burn out.

What I will say is this: I believe tech is one of the most accessible professions for people like us. It doesn't emphasize social skills beyond being able to communicate what you're doing / needs to be done. If you learn how to code there are plenty of high-paying startup jobs though you will need to specialize. For example: my first real complex project I made was a trading system. It could move coins between Bitcoin and other alt-coins with good security. When I released that I spoke about my work it impressed this startup enough to hire me. So if you want a tech job you have to be passionate and motivated enough to try do something difficult. Doing side projects like that will teach you real-world skills that you really can't get any other way. They will also demonstrate to companies what you can do in a tech sense and you can add them to your resume.

 No.262499

>>262498
It definitely does vary a lot. But every middle sized local government department is willing and able to have a tech support fella on standby to sort out when people forget passwords and like. If you shop around you can find those jobs, it's more that they're boring as shit like being a security guard, just higher paid.

The field has long been normified because alongside tech growing, other fields have shrunk and all the talent has flooded to tech. The people that once would become lawyers or engineers are now working in that field and brought their normie bullshit with them. People don't really talk about the fields like law, which have had their career ladder just disappear in front of their eyes as there's twice as many graduate lawyers as there are available jobs.

The whole point is the glamor of the field is often bullshit. And it is peddled by people that like to flex on others and do so in a way that's easy to do because technology is an enigma. You have a lot of pepeNEET tier bullshit surrounding the field.

there just arent that many high paying jobs that let you work remotely and dont require you to be a normie. like take medicine. you can work remotely with a 'telehealth' company doing simple consults but medicine is gated and requires all kinds of cert (pros and cons of this.) with tech you just pick up and book and try things out. no need to go to college. if you're depressed, have no energy, poor concentration, or severe anxiety, you can still earn a living in tech without ever leaving the house. i think thats p unique.

I got my first "real" job a few weeks ago and it's already a disaster.
Apparently I am a "salaried" employee which means my pay never changes no matter how much I work.
In practice this means that they can require me to work overtime uncompensated, but if I leave early or miss a day, all hell breaks loose.
I also don't have any vacation time or sick time until the end of the year, so it's a fucking trainwreck waiting to happen.
I had to call out the other day because I had a thundering migraine.
I came in the next day and HR immediately started harrassing me about how I was going to "make the time up."
I told them to just not pay me for that day and they said it's not how it works, I have to make the time up (even though I'm a new employee and literally don't know how to do anything)
So now I have to stay overnight for 8 fucking hours doing nothing but staring at a computer screen. Or come in on the weekend and do the same thing.

They call it "exempt" employees in the US. It means you are exempt from overtime laws.
Being a salarycuck is even worse than being a wagecuck.
It's a holdover from the days when they would cut people's hours all the time. In those days, having a salary was actually a benefit because it was a guarantee that you'd get the same money every week instead of the uncertainty of hourly.
But nowadays it's just used to make you work unpaid overtime.

Many managers are there to be the "heel", not so much to actually manage things.

Most people that start businesses are gregarious like other normalfaggots. They don't enjoy having to tardwrangle in workers and to be strict. They genuinely want to get along with people and having to be negative on other people ruins their mood. So they hire someone who genuinely enjoys that shit as a job and gets off on it.

But the business owners and upper leadership that hire these psychos hold them in total contempt. I have relatives that own large businesses and growing up they used to tell me often "I would punch him out if I could, I absolutely despise him but he's useful" and "if I was one of my workers I wouldn't let him talk to me that way, but they take it so oh well".

I'm not sure if your average tardwrangling manager is aware of how much their bosses just see them as a useful tool, and despise them. I think they're ignorant to it, because they're often sycophantic little fucks that are desperate from validation from further up, and that asslicking is too intense and pointless to be entirely cynical. They're the former bullies at school that have come to believe in prosperity gospel bullshit and that if they just work hard enough, they'll be at the top themselves one day by golly. But they never seem to go any further up than they are, ever.

But because people are people and do push limits, you have to have someone that's a bit of a cunt there to keep people in line. The problem is that the job is too often being offloaded to sociopaths that get off on it, and inevitably they just end up bullying the most vulnerable person pointlessly until he leaves.

I wonder if there's even any happiness left in this world for us in the lower-middle class.
Ever since I've started working fulltime I feel like I've become more acutely aware of all the misery around me.

I hate waking up at 5:30AM to get to my job, but yesterday I was driving my dad to the airport at 3AM and there were just as many trucks and commercial cars all along to there as any other time of day
I doubt any of those people wanted to be working at 3AM, yet there they were all over the city buzzing around.

Anyway the thing is that it's very obvious that getting this job was mostly an accident and pure luck, I'm 26 and without any real job experience, I don't really know programming except for the basics and yet I'm here with 23 year olds that have created Android apps, complex projects, worked for a lot of companies etc, while I was wasting my time (not even having a good time) they were out there learning, doing, working, being successful adults, and yet they're my coworkers, this shouldn't be, it's an anomaly.

Anyway I hope coming to the office every day ends soon after the training is over either because they move me to hybrid or because they fire me, even if I manage to stay here I'm not sure of I can keep going for more than a year, and holy fuck my parents will surely kick me out if I abandon this too soon.

Honestly unless you want a wife and kids, most of the "normie" things like your own car and your own house become burdens that you don't actually enjoy. With houses your weekends get sucked away with inevitable home repairs and with cars they're a huge money sink.

It's actually more effective and cost effective to be a NEET here than to wageslave full time with a car. Cars can suck away 30% of your income by the time you take into account petrol, WOF, registration, insurance and repairs.

If you really wanted a car to go on holidays with, you can just rent one for the one week during summer that you leave town on holiday.

Can't smoke legal alt-cannabinoids because your body breaks them down and produces chemicals that are also produced by marijuana, so if you get drug tested, it will be positive for THC even though you never smoked anything that contained THC.

Working is seriously fucking gay. Literally for slaves.

It's me blogging again, I feel so weird at my job, all my coworkers start talking about programming and sharing tips and shit that looks like legit Chinese to me, I don't understand most things they're talking about, they have so much more experience than me while I barely know how to create Java classes, so I just sit there nodding at things I don't understand, me being hired was an accident, an anomaly, and I'm just waiting for them to find out about it so shit hits the fan.

If you're NEET with secure roof and food stay like that, I wish I could.

Yeah, no shit. You're working with prime normalfags.

Don't be fooled by "nerds are cool" or other stupid shit like that. Nerds are the biggest normalfags around.

The fuck are you talking about? How is talking about programing a "normalfag" thing to do?

Dude chill out, you are a noob and like all noobs in programing you have impostor syndrome. It's the most common thing in a programming job.

When I started with a batch of 18 trainees in a mayor company, half of us had bruxism (excessive teeth grinding) a few months in because of the stress of feeling incompetent and way over our heads. You will learn with time. It takes about a year before you can do something useful on your own without hand holding by a senior, and about 3 years before the feeling of not knowing what you are doing goes away.

In short: programming is not easy, you have to put thousands of hours into it to get good.

My mom said I fucked up because of a mistake I made when submitting my resume. I felt the need to take something out to keep it to one page, which I know now, is/was not necessary in this case. I can't resubmit the application or even edit the profile I had to make for their website. Honestly, if they're making it so hard to do this, is it worth it in the first place? I don't even believe this job will help me with my career. Simply put, I don't feel like I've lost anything when there are other jobs out there that I could get an offer for in a week or two. It also could have been possible I was lucky last job, but I have no proof of that.

I find that nerds are often bigger pieces of shit than normalfags. The crossdressing coomer cunts that are your stereotypical young programmers have an annoying arrogance to them that's offputting. I remember talking with a mtf tranny one a few years ago and he straight up was like some character out of american psycho, just waffling on about speaker and headphone brand names and prices, whining about his parents non-stop and deprecating people that didn't live in a big city.

The guys wearing slacks with wives and kids are the nice ones in those circles.

Yeah I'm more calmed now, honestly I will just stop caring that much and try to be as comfortable as possible, I had some kind of epiphany last night, I realized that the worst thing they can do to me is firing me and that wouldn't be so bad really, so I will just stop giving a fuck.

But to be honest the worst scenario is that after training ends they decide to backtrack on their promises about hybrid, I would consider quitting then because I won't spend my life in traffic and then some office.

My job is tolerable, but the thought of having to work for the next 30 years just to drop dead afterwards is absolutely terrifying, actually the fact that our entire lives (even in education) are designed around work is absolutely nuts, who the fuck thought that this system was a good idea, the only reason I think something so fucked up exists is because the elites wanted to keep people busy to avoid being overthrown.

A good cope is working part-time, maybe 3 shifts a week or two 12 hour shifts.

 No.263057

work sucks but it's nice to have money

just work 4 hours a week like i do(make 40 dollars a week). it sucks but it's tolerable. 40 dollars is enough for me to be happy. i don't need a lot of money
