i truly believe that the only difference--in most cases, not all--between someone making a lot of money and someone making not a lot of money is their level of confidence. what i'm trying to say is almost everyone who works these types of jobs are either in a place where they can't do much more due to circumstances (e.g. not having transportation, unexpected financial burdens, etc.) and/or selling themselves short. i'm definitely grateful to have a job, but i know i can do much better and so can you, whoever you are reading this. that said, if you are considering taking a job here as a stepping stone to get somewhere else, remember that your attitude makes all the difference! be happy where you are, and keep your eye on the goal you have chosen to pursue, knowing that genuine appreciation for all you have is one of the best ways to help you get where you want to go. sorry, you wanted to know the specifics of what it's like working here, but each person's individual experience is different, no matter what position/field/company. it all comes down to your own attitude and what you choose to make of it. be the best you can be no matter where you are.
