1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    In theory I work in customer service. Really, I show up at noon, stay till 5 and repeat 5 days a week. I make just over 1200 a month, an income supplemented by my parents generosity.

    Apply a month before big sales, May and Nov/Dec for Nordstrom. Not sure when the women's sales are, but they pick up seasonal workers then. If you do well they might keep you full time and if not don't worry, you'll find an opening soon after. Also they hire random people to do inventory all you do is scan shit. But either way once you've been employed you have a good chance vs those who haven't. If you shop there and have a good relationship with an SA ask for a referral or ask your friends on facebook

    Upton Sinclair's The Jungle is a very good book about the meatpacking industry during the beginning of the 20th century. I recommend it :slayer:

    I'm also new to the forum (officially, been lurking for a long time). I run a dispatch office for a transit agency. The only thing I don't like about my job is that I have to wear a uniform... A polyester uniform no less.

    I also moonlight as a Firefighter to keep my EMT current while waiting to go to Medic school.
