/late/ jobs Anonymous 12/15/2020 (Tue) 07:40:32 No. 1977
As much as id like to live as a NEET and not have to work, i still need to make money. What are some /late/ tier jobs? Being a security guard isnt "nice", really, but its definitely /late/core, more so on the spooky and dangerous side. Train conductor seems pretty chill. plenty of time to shitpost and enjoy the late atmosphere. Medical field also springs to mind, not really comfy unless you like blood and guts. Taxi/uber/etc driver is peak /l8/ aesthetic, though it requires an active and tenacious mind. What are some other jobs that allow you to stay up late?
>>1977 Fireman probably, they have to deal with people all the time. Police too, but i'm not sure you'll really be interested in that. Maybe baker, but you don't really stay late it's more like you sleep and wake up at 4am actually. Hotel and Resort front desk clerk is also something that'll let you stay up late That's all the ideas i had in mind, I hope i helped.

>>1977 cashier/staffs at 24 hours convinene stores (i.e. 7-11)
>>1977 Train conductor sounds like a really comfy job, but where the hell do you even find work like that?
>>1977 working retail is pretty comfy when it gets into the night hours. i work until 11 pretty often, and once it gets dark and people stop coming in as frequently the ambience of the store is really calming.
>>1994 apply online, i guess. that or find a railway company near you and apply in person. sounds comfy to me too, would be worth at least a look.
>>1994 depends where you live, but >>2014 has the right idea. generally you need to work your way up to conductor( shifting boxes around, doing sing work, etc) but it seems like a fine option >>2013>>1983 ive never worked retail, but the ambience of a almost empty store at 4am is just something else walking into a gas station some 100 km from the nearest town at night is just /late/ as fuck guess working there would also be equally late and hey, you can probably sneak in some funposting here on the board
>>1977 recently just applied to this computer store near me, they had jobs on indeed and if i get it i'll be so happy, jobs usually make me want to die so if i get this i might be happy for at least a little bit !! jobs still suck though fuck working i hate jobs and i want to kill my boss
>>1977 >Being a security guard isnt "nice", really, but its definitely /late/core, more so on the spooky and dangerous side. Chain smoking while staring at the orange glow of light posts illuminating the seemingly endless concrete lots at a ware house; This has been my nights for about a month and I love it. Some of the other guards and I see and hear things there too, I personally think it is a comfy spooky, especially with the cold weather and thick fog that comes in late at night. Time seems to crawl.
>>1977 I've always kind of wanted to work nights at an airport bar or restaurant. I like airports, and it's always so interesting watching people come and go, knowing that most of them are embarking on a major journey in their lives.
>>2065 Right there with you, anon. Something that's helped me a ton is shaving expenses to put a lot into savings. Now at any point I feel comfortable with telling my boss to fuck himself if I see fit, since I can live off my savings for more than enough time to find different work. Yeah it's still work, but at least I don't feel bound to something I very well understand I fucking hate.

>>1977 Night stocker at a grocery store, cleaner for office buildings, etc., baker, factory or meat/fish processing plant, delivery truck loader/package sorter for UPS for Fedex, hotel front desk, hospital administration These arent glamourous jobs by any means, but they're all necessary and all need to be done overnight

>Security Guard Outside of bars, predominantly black cities, and public events, security guard jobs are fairly tame other than the occasional drunk bitch. >Train conductor You actually need a bachelors degree to do that now. Also because of the railroad unions you'll have to do back-breaking labor for about ten years to maybe get promoted into it. >Medical field If you like working with people >Uber driver It's a side gig, not a full-time job. If you're gonna do that anyways, you should take advantage of the pandemic and work as a food delivery driver since you'd make more money and be exposed to fewer sick people. >What are some other jobs that allow you to stay up late? Overnight stockers are usually in high demand and make decent money. Same with overnight milk/sugar/beer processing facility employees and pallet stackers. Any kind of overnight or late shift factory work is usually pretty comfy and pays the bills. I know guys who work what's called "dispatch" for the truckers (basically the guy who gives directions, handles emergency situations, and does all the behind-the-scenes paperwork for truck drivers) and they say it's pretty good work and the pay is decent. If you work a commercial fishing vessel it's 18 hour "days" that start in the middle of the night usually for three months, then you get to collect unemployment for the other nine months out of the year, but it's backbreaking labor. Oil rigs tend to be one week on one week off or two weeks on two weeks off and have you swap every other hitch between morning tour (night shift) and day tour working 14 hours on 10 hours off during your tour. If you go into any of the technician jobs for the Navy you basically work through the night while at sea from what I've been told.
>>2013 I miss working late evening retail. If my current job didn't have me up at the crack ass of dawn, I'd probably pick up a late evening part-time shift as a side hustle.
A /late/ job might be nice, but I would never take one, simply because the city is too dangerous at night.

>>1977 Night shift RN jobs are amazing, seriously. Work 3 12 hour shifts over night at a treatment facility. Check up on people that are asleep, do paperwork and browse on computer/phone. Get off at 8am, go to sleep. Have 4 days off to myself, sometimes I pick up another shift in the week if I'm bored and want to make more money. Making about 90k/year. I almost crack a smile everytime I think about how much I love my job. It's so fucking easy. I almost dropped out of the nursing program because I hated being around people, good thing there's no joke, like 40 different jobs you can do as soon as you get your RN license. Nursing school was easy as shit, just a lot of memorization and bullshitting clinicals. I'm so fucking happy I didn't quit. I'm INSANELY introverted too, I have no fucking friends because I fucking hate people. Turns out there's a job for everyone as a nurse. Just bought a house too in so-cal, been working for 8 years now and I'm 34, have like 200k in investments.
>>2518 that's insane, does working night shifts increase pay? i'd imagine so
>>2519 Not necessarily, but most normies don't like picking up night shifts because "muh normie life n kids n shit". If you're an introvert, it's heaven.
>>1994 Until you meet a whacko who dives in front of the train.. Good way to get yourself PTSD if you can't take people exploding. >>2226 Many of these jobs are going to put you in with illegals and drug addicts. They only sound comfy until you're trying to talk to pablo while he's off his face smoking and doesn't speak English. Being a writer of some kind is pretty good if you're up /late/. No one cares if you're reviewing sex toys for a shop at 3am or if you're writing how Orc man killed Elfman in an epic 1 page story of plastic junk selling. That's my dream right now and I'm pushing for it despite being 1 armed and smelling of cow dung all day. >>2524 Most normies aren't suited to staying up through the night. Their natural clocks makes them feel like shit if they do. Everyone has a natural body cycle and some of us are night people, some day people and others get fucked and live on 26 hour clocks which shift them around

>>2526 It's true, I feel tired during the day, I've always been this way since I was in middle school. I pursued Nursing because I knew the pay was good and the material isn't exactly rocket science. I was deep into the BSN program when I started to deeply regret it, but my glimmer of hope was Night shift jobs and finding a job that meant I wouldn't have to deal with people all the time. I had a job before staying at my current job at a clinic. it was 3 12 hour shifts 1PM-1AM. It wasn't so bad, but there was occasional drama amongst employees and it was a small clinic, so I eventually found the job I work out now. I'm so glad Nursing worked out for me, I thought I was destined to work a comfy job that didn't pay very much for the rest of my life. I was built for 12 hour shifts, I'm the type of person who like to focus on one thing and then relax. One of my favorite memories of my first year out of Nursing School and in the workforce was getting off at 1AM and stopping by a park on the way home. I would stay for 20-30 minutes and sit on a bench. It overlooked the valley to the NW. I could hear absolute silence, and see the twinkling of the city lights below. I was always just sitting there alone with my thoughts, thinking how grateful I was to have made it through Nursing school. I would come home some days after bedside clinicals and tear up because I hated being around people so much. I wouldn't be surprised if I'm on the spectrum. It was like exposure therapy doing clinicals, but I was brought to my knees every time. I could barely stand it. I guess pushing through really tough parts in life, makes people stronger, even though I used to think that was bullshit. Life is good now.
>>2528 This post was written by a serial killer trying to convince you to walk up hills in the dark where no one can hear you scream. I bet it was written while wearing the nurse's face.
>>2535 You either have a dark sense of humor, are a serial killer or both. If you're going to a park at 1AM, have a fucking weapon and be on high alert to watch out for people like this LOL
>work security at warehouse >rumors of spooky shit of old battle ground >see or hear nothing for weeks >ghost smacks the fuck out of me out of nowhere at 3:10 am >feel intense stare of hatred in this specific location every time I thought they were just a meme.
>>2550 I am not a convicted serial killer. >>2569 Most paranormal stuff is a meme but based on so much folklore and urban legends some of it has to be real. Most people have at least one event in their lives they can't explain or a minor cryptid encounter. Always better to stay on the side of caution when dealing with these things. Don't let it consume your life, but don't ago around screaming "Oi fuckface, I fucked your wife. Woo woo ghost blowjob!" either.
once worked as a /late/-shift cleaner at a nearby hospital eatery. thought it'll be chill as there's little to no human presence. boy was i wrong, not about the human presence, but the seemingly endless amount of chores to do. There's like 2 short one hour rest, but being still kinda young, it still absolutely tires me out and constantly getting leaky nose due to the constant cold air (from the air curtain?) blowing at me in the work enviroment. shame, it would be a ok /late/ job. just that the eatery is quite big, and there's only me, one supervisor and another co-worker.

>>2570 >I am not a convicted serial killer. hahahahahha
Not sure if my body is built for /late/-jobs or I'm just staying up due to using my laptop deep into the night. Either way, ever since i played Valhalla I'd thought about becoming a bartender. You get to here other peoples stories. Comfort them when their running away from their life's troubles. Plus it can either be comfy or exhilarating. Especially with bar fights.

>>2667 i was a barback once and it sucked. i worked at a popular tiki bar that is now closed. you do meet some cool people but you often spend your time babysitting them as they get more drunk, which is annoying. we were also understaffed and VERY busy; i seriously would not stop moving for almost the entirety of my shift. i would work ten hour shifts with only a 30 min lunch break. we were so busy that it was impossible to take your two 15 min breaks and if i wanted a quick cig, i had to lie and say i was gona go take a shit. speaking of shit, someone stole our plunger on a night that another person clogged the toilet with a gigantic shit. since there was no plunger, i had to snake that fucker with my hand. i wore a glove but still... that sucked! the tips were awesome though. lots of cute girls too, but i was too busy to talk to any of them anyway but occasionally they would hit on me. thank god i didn't work at a dive bar, so i never had deal with a fight. i would never work at a dive
>>2664 keyword: convicted, he just hasnt been caught yet. >>2680 >>2667 funny, i actually tought of putting bartender on the OP but must have forgotten i dont even like drinking but it sounds like a great job if you have the energy for it theres a bunch of werid shit on the local job site. CNC operator, security guard for a power plant, working at a pizza place. if you guys live in/near a port town you can always find a job at the port, they always need a dude to haul heavy stuff around or watch for boats or whatever.
>>2688 >i dont even like drinking but it sounds like a great job if you have the energy for it i dont like drinking either, i prefer the marijuana. but some of my coworkers were total alcoholics
>>2667 Video games are not reality, get that idea out of your head immediately. Bar fights are not fun and bar work is a real job. You need to have good social skills while being able to see the most vile things. Drunk women screwing any man they think has money or fame before they know his name. People stabbing each other over petty arguments and puking all over the place which you have to clean up. Depending on the bar quality you also need to pass tests to get the job. If a guy with money to burn comes in and asks for a wine recommendation you have to get it right. Which means having to go on courses and pass them so you're up to the job. >Asked a magazine editor what I need to do to submit my work to it >Email this guy and include your social media gallery >I don't have one Fuck? How can I be comfy like this?
