I manage school networks. In that line of work, they hire you because they honestly have no idea how anything works. In ideal situations, you can plant yourself in the server room, away from prying eyes, and people have to knock on the door.

I'm going to keep that bit in mind.

I'm a network admin for a company that does a lot of managed hosting (from letting the customer use/have a VM on our host machines to multi-hardware environments), colocation, shared web sites (ok, here's your little site and FTP area, have fun), and ISP type work.

Though the people outside the specifically technical roles (ie sales, billing, etc) have no clue about this stuff. Sales knows sort of what each product is, but nowhere near grasping how it works or what the limitations are.

Our customers are a mixed bag - some know a lot, some know nothing. Generally, the ones in the middle (that know some, but not too much) are the best, because they'll accept that the service was fixed with a restart (instead of insisting there must be some issue, or the all time classic "how do we know this won't happen again?" ), and they don't ask too many stupid questions along the way.

I was hired on as tech support for a college I am going to right now. Compared to my last job, this one is massively less stressful. I enjoy having a job that doesn't make my head want to explode.

So.. my secret would be... get a tech job :D
:P

Well they do need to be tested for proper working order.



I can't speak of any secrets at my current full time job. I started two weeks worth of training on Monday. Even after I can't legally spill any beans.

I work at a movie theater.


In the back rooms, away from prying eyes, I plan to raise concession prices even higher than the ones we have now.


Oh yeah...Im back Muhahahaha

Chef.
The secret? Those $20+ entrees you're eating cost us maybe $5 to make. And if you ask us to change something about it, we make fun of you.

And if you ask for anything cooked well done, you get the worst/junkiest piece of meat we have.

...Yeah, not huge secrets.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.
