NRR - what do you do for a living? (Read 965 times)

    In college, we called it "bugs and drugs"....which sounds more fun than "applications of medical microbiology".  I work with three women, - a physician, a pharmacist, and a nursing case manager.  I've become a good listener....a very good listener.

    I love sponge cake.

      I manage a beer store.

       You and I will become fast friends...

        Make stuff like shopping malls, school buildings, and gray hairs. I used to actually build with my hands, and now I build with a laptop and everyone says I am trailer trash.

            I am an Oncology Pharmacy Technician. I work per diem at a major Cancer Center mixing the magic stuff that will hopefully save lives. Full time, I work at the same Cancer Center arguing with insurance companies to make sure my patients don't go broke trying to pay for meds. If that doesn't work, I scour the globe looking for patient assistance. I cry on a routine basis when I get to tell my patients that they don't have to pay a $8,000 copay each month....we found them help! I love my job......wouldn't even quit right away if I won Powerball!

              I'm a nursing assistant at a hospital on a post op floor. Im still in school and I'll (hopefully!) be a registered nurse in 2 years.

              Runs the streets

                I work in the marketing department at a large insurance agency. I'm lucky in that I don't have to deal with irate customers. However, I do spend a large portion of my day dealing with irate salespeople.

                 

                I was in this field, previously. I started as a patient advocate and clinical appeals writer. Then I went to the "dark" Smile side and worked as an agent then as a benefits and employment advisor.

                 

                Now I am what most call a stay at home mom. I have two girls. I'm an old fashioned housewife. I NEVER thought I would be, but I'm good at it, and it's a pretty cush gig.

                 

                I keep keep saying I want to work when Vivian begins pre-k in two years. My husband will support my decision, but I know he isn't keen. I don't think I will ever work a corporate job again though. I may become a fitness instructor to get me out, get paid to work out, and have ample time for my girls, hub and home.

                  The sad, sad truth is that I work in Human Resources.  BUT, I don't have to deal with people. I'm an HRMS Systems Analyst and Salary Administrator.  Mostly I spend all day programming our system to be more efficient, analyzing data, and making sure salaries and benefit deductions are correct and in line with the rules of our TWENTY THREE labor unions. For 2000+ employees.  :-|

                      I can't imagine a moment of having 6 kids is boring. I have two. Two feels like a lot of kids some days Smile

                        I used to be an accountant, for 15 years, but I left the business. Now, I prepare 5 mini human beings for the world. So much more fun and gratifying. (and no, they're not mine). Let's see if I can post a pic.

                          If it is Psoft, it sounds like you do more the "back end" stuff.  That program is a PITA!  One false move, and someone could easily end up being over paid.

                              My job title says Sr. Pricing Analyst.   What?  That doesn't tell you anything?    I know......    Basically, I work the back-end toensure that retail credit card customers receive the disclosed terms and agreements that they were disclosed.   Lots of pressure and I would really hate it, except the people I work with are awesome!!

                                I'd definitely rather underpay them than overpay them!  It is always tougher to get that money back.  An underpayment is an easy fix.
