Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. After 24 years I left the service last year and after several shite wee jobs I've finally landed one I really want to do. It wasn't advertised but I wrote to the owner expressing an interest to work for his family business, a couple of months later he phones me, we meet, we chat and today he phoned to tell me the good news. When I first met the owner I looked at his place and thought to myself what a great team he has here and the owner is a real gentleman, old school ethos.

    I'm chuffed to bits with this one. Post military life can have a silver lining if you're prepared to be patient sometimes. :)
  2. Cow

    Cow LE

    Nice one! I've just started a new job which is what I was looking to do after I left, only took me 2 years to get there!
  3. and work as a cameraman in a Gay porn studio?
  4. You wish. No, a hardware store near Upminster and only about 1.5 miles away so I'm thinking of selling the car and getting a pushbike.
  6. Superb, Good on you! :D
  7. Congrats mate,
    Ive been trying like feck for 3 years to get out to the sandpit in my field of work and in 2 weeks away I go !
  8. Thanks reni. :) Good luck to you mate. 'Sandpit in my field'?
  9. Facilities management mate, out in Iraq, YAAAFCUKINGHOOOOO is the phrase i think describes it best ! :D
  10. Well done. I've also just got my dream job after 18 month of working for a company thats full of ex mil; they didn't have a clue about HR etc etc. Good on you!
  11. Good for you oldnbald.

    I did work for a high street retailer for nearly 2 months but the average age of the staff (including 'managers') must have been about 22 years old. The average age of their mentality was about 12 and their average age of ability to get things done, thinking for themselves and willingness to work was about 5 or 6.

    My new job will be a grown up environment.
  12. Chuffed for you. Like the thought of cycling to and from work.
  13. Good for you - wish I could cycle to/from work, but 40 mile round trip and lack of shower facilities is a bit of a killer - don't think it would look too good being all sweaty in the office - wouldn't go down too well as I am supposed to be the gaffer (don't ask me how - still pinching myself :?: ) looking after PC Plod's comms....

    So make the most of it - not many people get their dream role - nice one
  14. Thanks, thanks to all. Not a dream role (I'm not sure what that would be), but fulfilling. And today my neighbour told me of a sneaky route into work that will shave my time to work literaly by half. I'll have to go under a dark tunnel where the local yoof like to smack up etc. but the adrenaline rush of kicking fcuk out of them will set me up nicely for the day. 8)
  15. ......sounds like a dream role to me. Congratulations.
