I worked at my city's baseball team official store. Mostly apparel but anything relevant to the team is sold there. I worked there for most of 2012, during my first year of college. I got the job because my older brother worked there previously and recommended me and the interview was no problem. It was absolute hell. I can mentally adapt anywhere, I can deal with the annoying customers and seriously retarded coworkers, I can hide my powerlevel and act interested and motivated. The problem was physically. Even though the job had me as a sales associate, meaning I pretty much restock everything and help people get to shit, my body couldn't handle it. I'm pretty average, no illness but I don't work out and I'm not fat. During the first month, I had this excruciating pain on my legs and I literally had to grit my teeth just to keep working. My work times were late night and I would sometimes get home at 1 or 2 AM. I thought the pain would go away or I would just get used it, I didn't. Funny part is, my boss and coworkers weren't THAT bad. I didn't have any personal problems with anyone and it was a calm environment.
I quit because of that physical pain. I feel like it was a waste because of my coworkers and how easy the job was (seemingly). I'm currently trying to get a job that just has me sitting down doing whatever, hopefully in front of a computer. Unfortunately, I don't think I can get one with my "experience" and to get "experience", I have to finish college first. Experience is a bullshit requirement to scare off people. What experience really means to me is if you have had training prior. The more they know about your skills in that specific area, the less they have to worry about you. Of course, real experience always helps, just that, if you're completely retarded and have no experience whatsoever, (and you don't show of any prior training to that particular field) then you are just screwed. For example, this job I actually was accepted to work in but didn't due to wanting to finish school : They wrote down that you needed 2 years professional experience working with hardware and customer service. All I wrote down in my resume and what I said in the interview was that I know my way around computers and that the only training I would need is how the process in that specific position works. They called me for the my first, but I didn't go.
