I've been wanting to get Sam Milby's autograph so perhaps you can do me a little favor. LOL As for me, as a nurse, you barely get anything decent here. Aside from the fact that we are really not highly compensated, there's too many of us so that only a few ever lands in a job with pay. Most fresh grads I know are working as volunteers in hospitals. I used to land in a teaching job in a caregiver school, I could earn 11,000 a month if I was lucky to handle a module. At present I'm working in a review center for 5,000 a month so it's pretty tough going around with that amount alone. The good thing about it is free internet. That's how I get to mylot.

Well, I work for a videogame company and am part of the web team which handles tech and customer support. I like my job because it's easy, I have the freedom of working from home. I get some cool benefits like free games sent out to me sometimes, and all my co-workers, even those who are above me are very friendly and easy to get on with. The only thing I don't like about my job is the pay lol. But I can't really complain about that considering all of the benefits.

yeah benefits will be one of the keys/causes that's why we stay long in a company (i depend in this one too :) we have our medicard and when i was hospitalized my bill was Php15,000 or $320+ Private Hospital, VIP Room and for 3 days only and guess what i just pay Php 200 or $5 for my medical kit.*happy* :D) it's really nice to have benefits like this and reason why i should stay longer to my company LOL :D thanks for sharing!:) happy myLotting!;) Godabless!0=)

Hi friend, I was also from a call center in Alabang but only for a couple of months. I did fairly well and what I liked about the job is that you can sound smiling eventhough you feel like you could wring the neck of your customer on the other line (lol happened to me a couple of times), and yes, good compensation. What made me quit is that I don't like being away from my baby most of the time and when I'm home all I can do is sleep. I even slept on his 2nd birthday because I had to work overtime on that day which made my heart cry.

Honestly, I don't really like my current job. Considering it menial work with mediocre salary. Our boss is a nice person though. But he has this weak thing for pretty women. Due to the current economic circumstance, I have to stay there.
