I do Seeing the posts about what types of jobs are out there, not out there, what to go to school for, what to change degrees to etc, figured maybe it'd be interesting to see the jobs out there that people are actually happy in. Or, maybe I'm just a nutjob, and the only person in the world happy to go to work each day because of my work environment and tasks. My background and degree are science, lab stuff. I now work for a large financial/annuity company. I recently moved to the IT area, and now receive requests for system changes, write test plans, and test the changes. I also provide support for system issues and questions. Some of the things about the company that impressed me was the emphasis on the person during interviews and testing. I do not have a degree remotely related to computers. Didn't matter, because I showed proficiency in using the company systems. I've never held an IT job, didn't matter - I took the analytical test (pretty much and IQ test), and scored high - analytical and IT goes together. All interviews are behavior based (STAR interview system), to make sure they hire folks who think on their toes. The turnover, even at entry level, is very low. All of the upper management I can think of are all people who started entry level and worked up, even the CEO of the company. They hire older people, pregnant women, college students, everyone that fits the criteria of hard working and quick thinking. They have a program for entry level folks that allow them to choose their work schedule of 15-35 hours a week, no benefits, but the employee sets their schedule - perfect for moms reentering the workforce and have kids just going to school, or college kids, or anyone who wants a solid part time job that pays well and always has a door to full time. They cater to employees - fantastic cafeteria, LOADS of perks for local businesses, emphasis on charity giving (company will match 2-1 for many charity donations), good benefits package. They match 100% to 6% on the 401k, and also do profit sharing on top of that. The give bonuses, and are generous in raises if you work hard. If you are a slacker, however, they will can you faster than anything. Funny thing is, they are always hiring. Think I can convince folks to apply? Never. In the last year, I think they hired 300+ people locally. (If you want to apply for a job in Okemos, MI, PM me and I'll give you details though). I love my job. Never thought I'd say that about working in a cubicle, but I love it.
