~~Secrets of our Industry~~

Recommended Posts

GTAknowledge

Got the idea from this thread: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.p...36662521&page=1

 

Examples:

 

 

 

Auto Industry, I worked in the collision and routine car services department.

 

-the company that I worked for was based off of honesty and loyalty, so we never lied about cars having problems. If it didn't, we would tell you and tell you to leave. However, beware of the repair shops that like to lie and take your money. And there are ALOT. A smart thing to do is to take your car to various different shops for free estimates and see what they say

-you do not need to have an oil change every 3000 miles. Try 6000, and for newer cars, even 8000

-learn how to change your own oil. Do it the first time, and you will know how to do it the rest of your life, saving alot of cash. It is retardedly easy.

-my pr for quickest oil change is 8 min on a 99 honda accord, including checking tire pressure. that means I make about 10 bucks in 8 minutes

-most mechanical repairs will require a test drive before being handed back to the customer. I won't take your car out for drag races, but I like to see which of my test cars go from 0 to 40 the quickest.

-i can smell the weed

-hispanics take pride in their car, thus why you see so many of them are riced out. they don't care you are hating on their stickers

-not surprising, but women are generally stupid when it comes to cars

-if your ac is not cold, it costs less than 20 bucks to fix, 80% of the time. People usually don't want to check for an estimate because they think it will cost alot

-if you drive an american car, we will hate you. They are much harder to work on than hondas or toyotas, yet it costs an equal amount to fix.

 

 

 

 

Healthcare:

 

-Most nurses are incredibly lacking in common sense and are VERY lazy. Many I know don't even quite know who their patients are for the shift until WELL after shift change.

 

-Operating rooms aren't as clean as you'd think they should be

 

-Too many regulating agency's affect how well or how not so well a hospital can operate.

 

-Hospitals that claim non-profit are still doing things for the money. Sure it doesn't go toward typical FOR profit type things, but believe me, they still count every bean and try and push as many patients out as fast as possible to make room for the new

 

-Dr's order WAY too many diagnostic exams to be done unecessarily. Most of them are doing it to cover their own asses due to the highly litigious society we live in. CT scans do cause cancer. The rate is low, but they still do CAUSE cancer. And MD's order them like they are going out of style. Kid falls and hits his head, you bring to ER even though kid seems fine, BAM CT scan of head.

 

-Often diagnostic imaging exams are done simply to appease insurance companies. Go to MD about shoulder pain and expect an MRI? Nope, you'll get unecessary x-rays done first to PROVE that you need the MRI even though your symptoms are clearly needing an MRI scan.

 

-All surgeons are NOT created equal. In fact, some are downright incompetent.

 

-MD's like their asses kissed at all times the same as officers in the military. And just like those officers, not many of them deserve it.

 

 

 

 

I'm still a student at the moment, so don't have much to offer. But would be interesting to see the things you've learnt in your jobs/careers. smile.gif

Heavy machine working for oil industry (turning, boring, clad welding) tips:

 

Avoid at all costs. Dirty, mucky environment that completely lacks in health and safety. While your 4ft 11, bald, asshole of a boss cuts about in aston martins, and playing golf.

 

Sorry, may be a one sided opinion!

One thing I hate about where I work, and most supermarkets, is the totally unnecessary waste of food. At the end of every shift we waste on average about £67 worth of food that is totally fine. It's all because of the use-by dates so I can understand why but still, a lot of what we throw is perfectly edible for at least a couple more days. There are quite a few things that can be done with this to help people out and it just infuriates me that nothing is done.

Well being a geography student I wouldn't say I work in an industry. But here's something that's kinda in a small way related:

 

Why would you say the equator is the warmest part of the earth? Becuase it's the closest to the sun right?

 

WRONG!

 

It's because of the shape of the earth being a sphere (roughly speaking). When the sun's rays hit the equator they hit it at a roughly 90* angle. The higher latitudes receive the same amount of radiation but it is spread over a larger surface area due to the curvature of the earth. The suns rays also have to penetrate more atmosphere in the higher latitudes.

-you do not need to have an oil change every 3000 miles. Try 6000, and for newer cars, even 8000

-learn how to change your own oil. Do it the first time, and you will know how to do it the rest of your life, saving alot of cash. It is retardedly easy.

We have a 56 VW Jetta and the oil in that is one that will do 20000, but it's a pain in the arse to change as they've started to hide the oil filters and make the cars so you can't get to drain it either.

Also, have a look in the manual for your car, if it says not to put additives in the fuel or oil DON'T DO IT! We sent in our M reg Audi to a garage, it came out, worked well until you set off then it would shake the car around, same thing happened to the bosses 4 year old BMW, both cars were saying it was -40 degrees C outside. So don't use fuel or oil additives.

From my industry, Agriculture: If you have the knowledge and you don't mind getting dirty then fine, do it, it's fun, but if you're a dumb pussy that won't touch sh!t then you're not welcome.

Most of these seem like generalizations more than anything else. Calling most nurses lazy is like saying "oh, all Americans are fat".

I'm only a second year media student, so I've got no extended firsthand experience of it, but the media at large can't be 100% trusted, but not for the reasons you think. Pretty much everybody signs up to the idea that "Oh well, you can't believe everything you read in the papers". But if you then ask them why, then you'll usually get some line about advertisers or owners pusing their own agendas and censoring their publications to make themselves/their politics/useful associates/etc. look good. In truth, that only really accounts for a very small amount of "bad" reporting, usually in places like the Murdoch press.

 

The real answer is simulatneously close to that, but also completely different. It is commercialism and business that is making the press more incompetent, but it's not about propoganda and PR but something much colder and scarier: money. The ownership of the press in the last 100 years has gone from inidivudal owners or small groups to massive multinational conglomerates who don't have an agenda other than "make money, f*ck everything else". What's the easiest way to increase profit? Cut jobs. Less journalists are gathering, writing, editing and fact-checking news pieces. Second easiest way to increase profit? Put out more product, to carry more advertising. Publications start carrying a lot more content, but from fewer staff. So now you've got less people doing more work, meaning they literally can't do a good job on stuff like fact checking. You end up with ridiculous amounts of churned out work. Press releases are the biggest offender, they just get re-written and put out as news. As everyone knows, the PR office that puts out the press release will even flat out lie to you rather than say anything negative about their client.

 

So yeah, you can't trust the media a lot of the time, not because the journalist is trying to brainwash you but because they've got 8 more stories to write before lunch.

 

If anyone's interested in this sort of stuff and wants to see the news media in a new light, grab a copy of Nick Davies' Flat Earth News. Or watch this.

The trouble with papers today is the journalists dont do buggar all like they used to! in the old days journalost spent months in the field cross checking facts about storys they have uncovered before it goes to print! Nowdays the journalists just wait for the press release from the partys involved! this in turn is how some storys dont quite add up due to the fact they just take the press releases that the companys and people that were involved in the story wrote down themselves and prints them in full in the papers so alot of the stuff you hear is made up by the companys or people involved. a serious lack in journalists abiltys these days if not that then its just pure lazyiness!

 

you now know why the goverments are so fond of press releases because they pretty much get to spoonfeed you anything they want. The amount of times ive heard an MP say that there will be a full press release soon!

Liar.

 

As a tech guy I can tell you, we don't know how to do everything in the world of the top of our heads. We use google more than you'd think.

All musicians steal their work from past works. From Kanye to Metallica, every musician "steals" but only the greats make such thievery sound original. Looks don't matter in music, drug dealers do. Sad to say it but if you are a female singer most people won't work with you so learn to be a multi-instrumentalist as well. 90% of musicians are weak minded and easily fooled into horrible situations that destroy them mentally and financially. Read up on BMI and ASCAP they will save yur ass. The music industry died years ago but not by the internet as most feel, it was the musicians on local levels (Napster didn't kill music, musicians killed music). Most low to mid end guitars regardless of brand are made in the same factories in Asia then shipped to their respected warehouses. Recording studios are a huge scam, learn a trade and learn to craft yurself, there's great knowledge to be learned on the matter on the web from vids, forums and articles. Most commercial studios run yur work through their generic run of the mill techniques that they use for every project.

I can confirm that one.

 

When I took my job I was told top priority is to stay out of the news papers. I'm sure I'd get into some trouble if I came in here and started spouting off some of our secrets.

Please don't do that. If people work in an industry that has secrets and they're confident they won't get caught, I'm sure they'll come here.

Well...

 

It all depends on where you end up working...

Ive been in some awful and also in some pretty great companies (mostly to do with electronics and metalworking).

 

What I have noticed:

 

*A good number of clients seem to have no clue how parts are produced and hence give you unrealistic or pointlessly tight tolerances, send you unworkable drawings or just generally make your work as difficult as possible.

*Supervisors dont really care how you get your job done, as long as you get it done on time.

*In a company that isnt as smoothly managed as it should be, every single employee (including the CEO) usually complains about other employees. This leads to low morale and lower standards. Stay away from such places!

*Metalworking can be very dirty and very dangerous regardless of the caution you take (I have several scars to prove it).

*Machines break down at the worst possible time.

*There are maintenace guys out there, who have absolutely no clue what they are doing.

*99% of line workers in electronics are women.
