Who’s broke after bills? I am, I am! Who couldn’t attend class last night due to some crazy traffic caused by a stalled vehicle? I did, I did! Living in Hawaii is sometimes a blessing and sometimes a curse. At work, I get paid strictly on commission. There are certainly other perks than just being a PC Tech. Being paid on commission means I don’t have a set time to come in and leave. I can leave if there are no jobs, I can leave if things are slow, I can take a little longer lunch than most can all because I don’t get paid hourly. The downside, is when there are no jobs whatsoever. This means that I can bring home very little money for the time being.
Yeah, sure, I can look for another job and I plan on doing that. However, this is my first job in the IT field and I’m using it to build my experience. I’m not unhappy here, I am content except for when there aren’t many jobs. On top of that I’ve learned how to work hard and get paid for that hard work. I never really understood how so many people could work so hard busting their asses doing construction or other jobs that seem just incredibly hard. After receiving some lackluster paychecks I came to the conclusion that I wasn’t working to my fullest potential. Therefore I attempted to “bust my ass” by working extremely hard. I realized that working hard pays off. At times though, I still get lazy, like this pay period. There are a few jobs in queue but not a whole lot. There are other techs who work with me so I also want to leave other jobs for them since that is the only way they get paid too. Here’s to a good but broke weekend.
