I said paid, because I don't mean sahm.

Which paying job were you happiest at, and why?

I was an admin assistant at a not fot profit elder care facility. It was only a day center... No overnights. I loved it. The elders were so much fun, and it was great, after I got my work done,, to be able to sit down and talk/play games. We constantly had entertainers coming in for them, so there was great music too.

My favorite part was watching these fantastic people doing their chair exercises to AC/DC!

Shipping clerk for a manufacturing plant.
The hours sucked but it was the best pay and fairly laid back.

$15 an hour

The United States Postal Service, I'm just going to say starting pay was $17 and I was there 10 yrs or actually a little over that.

I was a home health aide. Loved it. I alone was able to get my first apartment on my own pay checks. I was so sad when the ladies I took care of passed away.

I was happiest as a sgt in the army. Best paid was after I got out with a contractor on base.

That was the hard part for me too... But I felt so honored to have gotten to know them.

I'm a c.n.a. at a nursing home. I've been at the same place since graduating high school my co-workers are like family. I love my residents some have been there for 7+ years. I love the work that I do it's very rewarding in its own way.
