    My elementary school was next to a farm and a factory that processed the products. So at recess it was always a gamble of whether it was going to smell like manure or ketchup.

    My first interview was a NIGHTMARE. It was at a local "amusement centre" that my brother and sister worked at. I was so nervous and completely blanked during the one-on-one. The woman that interviewed me told my siblings that she was afraid she'd have to call an ambulance because I was white as a sheet and completely unresponsive for a whole minute. Needless to say I did not get the job.

    Barbara thought she was applying to work at a movie theater, turns out she was joining a cult, the two are very similar in Canada...

    My first job was at a bar, the owner asked me if I wanted to work for my beers. I told him I'd prefer cash and that's how I got hired. I became the sole security of the place and also trained in being manager, so I had a key to the place and I opened it up every day.

    I don't have a funny hiring story, I do have one about what happened when our department (Website development) was rolled into another department (Marketing) which has also just come under new management at the time. I worked for a fairly small subsidiary of a fairly major UK retailer at the time that will remain nameless as I still have a few friends working there.  


    So after we'd been yanked from our nice quiet dungeon (which wasn't that far off the IT crowd in that there were no windows and nobody ever went there who didn't work in the department but at least it was peaceful and you could get shit done) and stuffed onto the noisy sales floor with people ringing a mother fucking bell every time somebody made a mother fucking sale, the new manager of the newly conglomerated department decided we needed to have some kind of "team building exercise".  What this involved was a half day of doing half baked pop-psychology bullshit that was supposed to prove something or other (apparently stating that if you were a colour you're the colour green says something deeply profound about you other than the fact that you like fucking green).  


    I'm not sure if this is universal for people who work in geeky professions or if it's just me, but i've never liked marketing types.  I find their personalities abrasive and just get a vague whiff of insincerity from them, that this front they're putting up is not only obnoxious but also isn't even really who they are and they're just doing it to make you buy something.  Anyway I found the whole experience galling and ridiculous and a complete waste of time.  When they got to the "Explain what kind of animal you are" BS I'd lost my patience and declared completely deadpan that I was a squirrel.  Remember these are marketing types and they were all saying that they were sharks or wolves or lions or tigers (or any big cat, really).  When asked to explain it I managed to put together some quite convincing BS that it was because squirrels are intelligent and good problem solvers (which is actually true), but the real reason was because fuck you I'm not playing this asinine game anymore.  


    I lasted about a month on that sales floor trying to keep the website running smoothly before I finally couldn't take any more and resigned.  Most of the rest of the team followed suit fairly quickly.  I think they outsource the website development these days.

      It's the post show. Most RT videos have an extra sponsor exclusive video. There is an actual 50 min show in the recommended videos below it.

    I'm pretty sure those sex toy selling parties still happen in the UK. They were much more common a few years ago before online shopping blew up but I do remember hearing about them really often.

      They're still very common! I was an Ann Summers rep for about a year, until a couple months ago. Definitely not a job I told my Grandparents about

    Barbra's story of the hiring process at Cineplex is so hilarious to me because I am Canadian and Cineplex is the main theatre chain I go to and I would describe almost all of their employees at the various locations I've been to as the exact opposite of energetic and outgoing.

    I worked for Carmike for nine years as my first job. It sucked. I made it to assistant manager until I realized what I wanted to do with my life and chose that over the worst movie theater chain. I wouldn't recommend it.

      Agreed. It seems like American fast food chains are always way better outside of the United States.

      Back when I had an after school job at McDonald's they had timers for the food after they were cooked. so after 15mins throw small patties away after 20 throw nuggets away. Well to save money they would just reset the timers. Over and over and over.


      Never ever ever order a grilled chicken sandwich after noon. Those things sit for hours.

    So glad there's a post show. It's definitely cool for me to think about how many times I may have walked by Barb when I would go to the Coliseum. Too bad the Burger King's gone now though. unamused

      I think the main issue with YouTube comments is the almost total lack of a sorting system. The thumbs down used to do something(I think), but it doesn't anymore.

    first off, i am so glad and #blessed that always open has a post show! 

    few things. 1. idk if it's just the different locations/branches of burger king, but the burger king in my town sucks. they're always understaffed and 9/10 there is no ac in the summer. 2. in terms of food prep (i work at a local business), i was in the same boat as lindsay, but (thank god) i didn't get fired, they just cut my hours and now im getting really good at food prep and should hopefully get some more hours soon! 

    again, super happy there's a post show! always open is def one of my fav shows <3
