OK.. so I know this gets asked a lot and please don't flame me for being the #137428934723842 person to ask, but I'm desparate and tired and I just left a great job because I really, really wanted to move back to my home (Portland) and I'm scared. I've done a search for other posts about it and outside of a job at K-mart, I didn't find much information.
Basically, I'm an ASP.NET programmer, but due to the fact that the holiday is here and this job takes awhile to get hired for, I'm looking for something that will get me on immediately so I have some money coming in. I know there are temp agencies and such, but I remember someone posting up some stuff about immediate hire temp CSR type of work. I don't care if it's sucky, to be honest, I won't be there that long. I just want something that'll start up and be a paycheck. Also, I have applied to some temp agencies, but there are so many listed on dexonline, it's hard to know which ones are good or not. So if anyone has any experience with that?
Thanks so much. I know this gets asked a lot.. but you guys always have some advice. Oh and I also have a LOT of experience as a server, so if anyone knows any server positions open, I'd be happyt to know. Thank you!
2 posts in DP today? Two? What's up with you guys? What are you doing?
I'm discussing sex toys with a friend. Your thoughts?
I have not looked at LJ for FOUR DAYS! I have not seen my friend's list, nor have I looked at DamnPortlanders. I am not an addict! I can quit anytime I want!
so i posted a couple days ago asking about button makers. i have this thing coming up that i want to make buttons for, so i can't really wait to have one shipped to me. does anyone in portland have one they'd let me use, if i bought my own parts/brought you cookies/whatever?
Or just downtown I suppose?
4 of us will be going to The Nutcracker on a Saturday in December.. what I'm wondering is, where would be a good restaurant to eat at prior to heading to Keller?
Cost isn't really an issue, but food and atmosphere are.. Something semi-fancy would be good, but not black tie by any means :)
oh yeah, thanks :)
Does anyone know the answer to this?
its from esquire: ""as an indirect homage to a hometown celebrity, vandals routinely add the letter d to a street sign in portland. what does the unadulterated sign say?"
I'll be leaving for the Roseland pretty soon to go see Fiona Apple (yay!!!), but surprisingly I've never seen a show at this venue. So...my question: if it's an all-ages show with general seating admissions, are there going to be actual chairs that I can sit in? Or is it one of those places where everyone stand the whole time because there aren't actual seats? I know there is a balcony that has chairs, but I think it's usually just 21+ (which I won't be for another two months). Anyways, I ask because I'm feeling a bit under the weather and I don't think I'll make it through a whole show standing.
ok, I know there is an Indian restaurant next to Food Fight on Division. I've eaten there. What is it called?
or am i delusional?
I often have one limb that's cold and one limb that's warm... for example, my left hand tends to stay warm while my right hand freezes (I'm right-handed, btw). Same goes for my feet, almost every day. I wonder what Chinese medicine would say about this? Am I lacking in the yin or yang dep't?
Share the love, damnportlanders. Thank you kindly. :-D
i am hoping someone might have some advice regarding passports. i am leaving for Germany in a week and i am waiting for my passport to come back to me via fedex. i just got a notice of a "bench warrant" due to non-payment of a speeding ticket. i am going to go in and pay it tomorrow of course... but does anyone know if this would be grounds for denial of a passport?
Hello! I have an awesome job for someone!
I run a small catering and serving type business. I need two servers for Thanksgiving day (1pm until around 6pm). It pay's $15/ hour + tip. It involves setting tables, pouring wine, clearing dishes, possibly washing dishes, and general cleanup all at someone's house just in West Linn.
I need someone with serving experience (resume) and someone who can come to my work tomorrow evening (downtownish) so I can meet you really quick.
This is easy money! Either comment here or email me: RebeccaLavelle@yahoo.com
I'm looking for restaurants that deliver. Healthy. Ethnic is also good (we like thai, indian, ethopian...) and we are pretty open to things we haven't heard of. Online menu a plus. And relatively cheap (I know a lot of restaurants use a service that does $5 delivery on $15 orders, but usually we're being fancy if we spend $20 on food...).
Go, speedracer, go!
Out of curiousity: are you going to steal a few moments away from Thursday's FFF (forced family fun), for a few quiet moments with LJ?
did any one watch the two OPB pieces tonight on Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans?
This just in: Nicole Doll on KGW news is hot.
That is all.
Where in Oregon are the good Renaissance Fairs/Fayres? Even the bad ones? How about folk festivals? Especially those in the Portland area that we don't have to travel far to get to.
I know some of you DPers have to be into this stuff.
Thanks poodles and oodles.
