Tired of the 9-5? Don’t want to watch YouTube videos about making passive income – through scamming people in a pyramid scheme – anymore?
Let’s take a look at what the internet had to say about the most overpaid jobs, and hopefully, you can figure out a career change after this.
One of the top answers we found was that about 2/3rds of the university administrative staff are paid too much. Have you ever wondered what happens in those air-conditioned offices and massive administration blocks? You’re not the only one. In fact, people complain about professors not being paid as much, while three people occupy the same honorary position.
People working at insurance companies and hospitals have the same complaints.
Someone got hired for a managerial position for a project that never took off. They still got paid just for showing up.
That’s the tip of the iceberg; this person got hired as a regular agent while being paid as the manager because of a database error. And he didn’t even lie on his resume.
Regional Vice President
We don’t think even the VP knows what they’re supposed to do other than…preside at one or two lunches?
People complain that these guys probably landed a promotion and decided to just know how things work instead of making them work. Others never have the time to work but still have no clue what they’re doing!
Someone did report they write emails, which would be perfect if we could choose between regards and warm regards to signing off.
We have mixed feelings about this one. However, most people wait for the parents to return home while the children sleep. They even play with their pets, eat, and still get paid.
Someone out there is getting paid $100 to do just this. Others think the babysitter is just someone who can fix things if something goes wrong, like needing to call for aid.
Everyone’s just unhappy because despite being in the top management tier, most of these folks know nothing. And they’re worse than Jon Snow.
One hospital CEO didn’t know the purpose of a surgical marking pen. Somebody else thought it was fine to do 60 MRIs each day because they take a few minutes.
These guys aren’t even tech folks. They just ended up in the management.
Teams don’t get much done without direction, and if the director never shows up, it’s limbo time, unlike the game.
You could avoid hiring these folks by just listening to the people in the company. But who doesn’t like mildly warm coffee and stale donuts over a PowerPoint presentation? At least it’ll get you to 5 o’clock.
Many individuals think the “outside guys” are just scapegoats for companies downsizing.
One user said he works a tough job. For 45 minutes each day. Others send emails, play video games, and live while enjoying the benefits of an overpaid position.
Once they’ve passed a few government qualifications, contractors will be paid to do very little. Like this guy who occasionally inspects something but mostly sits at his desk in a scenic location.
If others can use you for quick clearance on their projects, you can avoid working too hard.
The commission people pay these guys to point out the bathroom in a house is unreal. Imagine getting paid for pointing to a road or the sky.
They’ll tell you to breathe, do yoga, pay a few compliments, and suddenly you owe them $500. As long as you’re nice, look good on camera, and can sell a course about how to think, this might be the job for you.
Just take fees for being in the middle of transactions. It’s like the adult version of getting mom something from the store and keeping the change.
