i'm a data entry personnel for a logistics company. our company works for a plastic resin packaging firm based in houston, tx......so basically, i work on a graveyard shift - 9 pm to 6 am (houston time - 7 am - 4 pm)

salary is a bit low imo....about $300 a month, so i've been passing applications to other bpo companies here like ibm, e-telecare, telus, etc which offer sumthing like 500 to 600 dollars a month. :)

I'm twice your age and in the same boat... My mom won't get off my back either.

i have done acouple of part time jobs actually. they are listed below:
1) i have worked in the hospitality services (which is basically like a canteen where you get things to eat), so here i made things to eat, washed dishes, cleaned, served customers
2) i have worked in the library (special projects department :lol: )- here my main job was getting lot of things including carrying doors, stands and many other things and bringing them down from 4th floor and dumping them in huge trash bins outside the library. thank god the lift was there, but it was still very exhausting (as it was more or less continuous from morning 8am to evening 5pm) and somethings were really heavy to carry such as the doors, that too with only about 5 of us there, we had do all things alone (though only 2 of us were doing most of it)
3) i have worked and am still working as a teaching assistant in my department. this has easily been my easiest job. here i have to just grade papers
