“I worked as a recruiter for Microsoft during the pandemic. There was such a fever pitch for tech talent that we were basically throwing $175k checks at anyone with a pulse and a GitHub.

We have a lot of amazing tech talent but some of the people we hired had no business being there. Like, literally just twiddling their thumbs and handling one or two small kanban-type projects each week while reaping almost $200k a year. All of the big tech firms did.”, said one user.

“I make $230 a day (wages are based on route value) and I was home before 9am on Friday. I started at 7am. Mondays are longer, and Christmas can be hectic, but 10 months of the year I work max 4 hours a day. 

Benefits that are better than Blue Cross and I pay $15/month for PTO, personal days, etc. It’s the best job I’ve ever had.”, said one user.

“I get paid just under $80k working nights at a gym. Get all my work done in less than 2 hours and can basically do whatever for the other 6.

Watch football, scroll Reddit, whatever. Not awesome money but excellent for what I do.”, said one user.

“I know a married couple with the same med admin bachelor’s degree, and a one a year online master’s in medical admin. They walked out of college into 6 figure jobs over ten years ago and now make ~$500k each.

I can’t tell if they actually do anything for the hospital. During the pandemic they took advantage of healthcare loans they didn’t have to pay back.”, said one user.

“75k a year to set up projectors and microphones. Most of the day consists of waiting to break everything down after the event.

Lots of downtime, like a lot. I was able to finish my associates degree with all the down time.”, said one user.
