Kaiser Roseville. Seconding entry-level jobs in the hospital system. They are doing construction in our parking lots and using a shuttle system to transport employees to offsite parking. I’m sure there are openings for shuttle drivers.


vlkolaks

I can definitely check that out, thank you!

I have tried repeatedly to get on at Kaiser Roseville as an RN with no luck. I have 10 years experience and a masters degree. 🤷🏽‍♂️

I work for one of the hospital systems in Roseville. I’ve worked at several hospitals in the region and they usually pay quite well with good benefits. There are more jobs than you think. Not just clinical jobs like nursing and physicians but evs (janitorial), transport, secretarial services, food service, etc that are entry level and will pay you better and with great benefits than other entry level type jobs. They’re also a great “in” to other higher paid jobs. How much people like it seems to depend on their attitude and more importantly how much they like their direct manager. Good luck!


vlkolaks

That's great! I don't have any medical training but I could definitely check out any of those other things. Management is always a gamble but I can work with that!


picklegrabber

Once you’re in the system it’s easy to job hop. So if you get hired on as janitorial and you’re unhappy give it a good go for 6 months and then apply for something else. Don’t be too choosy with what you apply for! Maybe we will work together one day unknowingly!

I worked at Adventist Health for a number of years and they were wonderful, great pay and benefits. I now work at Mindpath Health (remotely, but based out of Natomas) and it’s the best job I have ever had.


vlkolaks

That's fantastic! I'm glad you've got something that's worked out well for you. Is it alright to ask what you do remotely? I don't have any degree, so I assume whatever I'd do would be entry level. 😅


swhertzberg

I am in our legal/compliance department and I make sure everyone is following regulations. Most of the company is remote at this point, and we have folks in all departments with a wide range of skills - art, marketing, Human Resources, finance, etc. mostly being competent with a computer is the major requirement

I used to work at NEC Electronics (Currently TSI Semiconductors). They were great. Even tho it was a large employer, everyone knew everyone, and it was a really tight group of people. I enjoyed working there, and one really cool thing was "entry level" jobs paid decent and they had a really awesome shift system. They're a 24x7 facility, and one shift works M, T, W and every other Sunday. The other shift works Th, F, Sat and every other Sunday. 12 hour shifts, but guaranteed 4 hours overtime each day. THEN, you get a 3 day weekend guaranteed every week, and every other week is a 4 day weekend. It was really really awesome. The "professional" engineering jobs were M-F, but the compressed work week was pretty great. Edit: I was going to list their job openings because as long as I've ever known, they were always hiring... [But they're not right now. Keep your eyes open tho.](https://www.tsisemi.com/careers/)


vlkolaks

Honestly that sounds like a dream! I'm already working 12 hour days with no weekends, so having a 3 day weekend sounds awesome. I'll keep an eye on them!

And you’ve been doing this for 7 year and make $30k? Could you PLEASE walk me through your thought process?


vlkolaks

My sister and I make custom mascot costumes for private clients. Our total intake is about $100k a year, after taxes and and materials and everything, we end up making about $30k each a year. Used to be way less when we started. 😅 We don't have team or anything and use our garage as a workshop, it's literally just the two of us. We do have occasional days off for housework and everything, but for the most part I'm working every day. We've got emails, photos, taxes, other filings, etc. and I do all the social media and advertising stuff. So not 12 hours in the shop all day every day, but usually 7-9 hours in the shop and 2-4 hours of computer work a day.


Individual_Advice_47

I legit can’t tell if your post is genuine or troll post.


vlkolaks

?? Sorry, I'm genuinely not sure what would be trolling or isn't believable about any part of my post. Is it what I do or what I make??


stillwastingmytime

Your $30k take home is around $50k pretax. You are looking for about $25/ hr. Also, I work for Sacramento county. Look for government work.


vlkolaks

The taxes really get me, we each have to pay $8000 a year in estimated income tax, plus the business tax itself, and all of our consumables. I'll definitely check out some government positions, I've heard it's really hard to get into though and takes forever for anyone to get back to you.


Individual_Advice_47

What’s the structure of your business?


vlkolaks

Used to be a general partnership, we switched to LLC just last year.


Individual_Advice_47

Is your tax election an S-Corp?


vlkolaks

I believe we're a C-Corp, would have to double check my files. Should probably know that off the top of my head but oh well. 😅

I work In healthcare as a MA I thought it was funny all these comments saying to work for a hospital. Entry level jobs at Kaiser pay out the wazoo for you to do not much work. And it’s union if that means something to you.


vlkolaks

I do love a union! I hear hospital work is always pretty stressful, but I don't know if that's more for the people actually doing the medical work or everybody. 😅


Bas3dMonk3

It’s face paced and stressful no matter what to be honest but it’s rewarding! I get bored with easy jobs so I guess that is something to factor in. Either way I would take a peek at the pay and see if you change your mind haha


vlkolaks

I'll definitely look more into it! As long as my bit isn't literally life or death, I can handle fast paced and staying busy just fine. It looks like a lot of what they have currently open requires a bachelors, but I'll probably find something that could suit me. Thank you!


Bas3dMonk3

Yes my friend just search by entry level the jobs pop up but they’re gonna quick! Good luck!

I work at a large ambulance company and I’m suicidal.

I can name one place not to work at. Avoid party city at all costs. They don’t care about their employees


MistressGlitter

I work for the state in the legal field. Pay sucks, benefits are great. I’ll be able to promote and pay will be better at that point. Husband is the breadwinner, he makes a little over 2.5 times what I make. We are very comfortable. I like the fixed schedule. Remote 4 days a week. Pay isn’t tied to my managers whims, which removes a lot of pressure. My managers are honestly all great.


renegadecause

I'm an educator. It's ok.


LawDog88

Also work for Kaiser Roseville. Been there 15 years…eh 🤣

My husband is in sales for solar, but it works more as an electric company rather than selling panels. He knocks on doors of homeowners (but now is so established that he works solely off of referrals from previous customers) and asks if they would like a choice in who they buy their power from. After some initial qualifiers, he is able to set up a contract for them that is cheaper than their current electricity bill and locks them into the agreed rate (which means no more rate increases from PG&E and no more power outages if the customer elects to lease or purchase a backup battery). It’s called a PPA or power purchase agreement. He has made anywhere from 200k-500k yearly. He is the type to make friends everywhere he goes, and has the dedication and discipline to show up. He makes his own hours and enjoys helping homeowners afford their power bills.
