Over the past week its been nothing but more work…but that’s a good thing! last week I started my official employment at a local pawn and ended leaving Starbucks as a Computer Specialist repairing computers in-store and customers computers and I’m very happy to make this transition dough I was not to happy with my last line of work (another story of Starbucks for another blog) Computer repairs was something that I didn’t think it was going come up in my rader quickly to this point of my life but I remember that 2 or 3 years ago (I don’t remember exact year it was, anyways)
I was in position over at another local computer repair store around my area at that time and I know I was there as an intern for one day there and I know that didn’t go plan well didn’t come back there again for the intern position the week after due to family issues and the fact I had a good reason not to come back was that the owner was a big ass smug and no way I wanted to work with him and for the fact that I was out in the waiting room 2 hours and I know understand that the owner and two of his staff was busy taking care of customers at the time and finally I got out up of the chair I was seating at I came up to him and said to the owner
Me-“I was waiting for a long time and I understand that you where with customers and you told me last week I come at 10 A.M”
Owner-actually I wanted you to come over around 8 a.m but not 10 A.M.
Right there an then I was being fooled by the owner and been taken advantaged of and I knew that wasn’t right since he’d interviewed last weekend and said that 10 a.m I was sure at the time that was correct what he said and addition he added then.
Owner-“Only reason I made you wanted in the lobby was just to test your patiences and the way I was looking at you, you had a pretty antsy l0ok and I know it because I can tell and I won’t anyone that doesn’t have any patience to work here.
(I know for that fact that he was Lords work and I know that because he had a christian cross right next to me in the store’s Lobby, I myself wasn’t going to accept leaving the store I won’t wanted to take No for answer from this guy and leave the store without any work, I amitted there)
Me-“Well I understand I was late and I know how my attitude is I can be antsy, I was pretty patient for the most part and I know that I gotten the time wrong to show up this morning but I really wanted to with computers and I can be patient with people” That right there I said in response.
Owner-“Well I know but we are pretty busy since you did came in late I need you to come in again next week on time”
Me-“Alright but just to take you that my brother just drop me but I don’t know anyone that can pick me up and I have to call my relatives to pick me”
From then on I did worked over on one old Dell desktop computer and that was it did not come back next week for my intern
(One advice for internships make sure that you go find work that does paid interns, None paying interns is pretty shitty doesn’t pay you just the fact they can sure to treat you like shit, never for one…PLEASE!)
My Story with the Pawn Shop.
It started it out back fours ago when I was looking for a stable job around my area and at that time I was working as a busser in an Italian Restuarant over at a local country club. at that time and decided, Maybe…Just maybe I can working around both jobs and see how that goes for me. So I did that and the local pawn shop worked up pretty well and I needed something that I help myself financally strive forware and not decide backwards like I was doing over at the Italian Restuarant from there I was doing pretty well and I knew that I wanted to work somewhere else but back then I was still struggling and I knew I didn’t wanted to do Sign Spinning for the rest of my days.
From then I left the Pawn Shop and continue doing seasonal positions and other jobs that I can find that will benefit me but over all times I had with the people at the pawn I had still kept in touch with them about doing more sign spinning work when I was out of a job with different places and I knew they liked me because I was driving more business with all the costumes dressed up as Angry Bird and Batman, Now as of this year of July they have me working inside which I like better since I not going to be out in the heat….WOAH! This year was one of the hottest summers I have dealt with and I’m glad I’m not doing a whole lot of sign spinning because with the heat it can wear out your body. I love being inside
Two, I can work computers, tablets and phones.
Three….There’s no THREE! Just make the customers happy get the job done and satified every customer with electronic issue and continue from here.
Just very recently I worked into a desktop that had viruses, Malware and dust inside that choked the computer’s fan. Had fun doing it and will continue doing it as long the repair work continues I keep on doing it.
