    What do you think about your boss?

    So I do design & layout for large format print. At least, that's what I was hired for anyway. I've actually been doing more printing than design (don't get me started...) & now my boss is saying I need to get proofs out to customers in 5 minutes in between printing crap (and mean HUGE signage & vehicle wraps). Come on...FIVE MINUTES? I'm quick...15-30 minutes tops...but five is ridiculous. Unless it's more than layout. Personally the guy is cool. I even know his family. But this crap is working my nerves.


    Having said that, what do you guys think of your employers? Feel free to get all mad about it too.

    Well, you could outsource the work to a bunch of chinese people or mexicans for about 20% of your pay, or you could tell your boss that it's basicly impossible to get those proofs in that time. just sayin'.

    Ha. Wish I could outsource to BCT or Tiger Print (though they suck. man I just realized that I paraphrase a LOT.). Had that talk about impossibility this morning. And then dude took like 30 minutes trying to show me how to get it done in 5 lol! Nah. he's good dude. It's his bosses dropping the hammer on him. As you may know, shit rolls down hill. I've designing & proofing at normal speed & he hasn't mentioned it again since he basically proved himself wrong.

    But that's my boss what about yours HB? Or teachers? IDK. There's a lot young ins on this site...

    heheheh...I was fresh out of that discussion about me doing 5 minute proofs. Come on Rebel! Let it all go man!

    But seriously...



    Could you actually touch up this old picture in 5 minutes? I'm a bad dude, but I aint that bad. I've been at it for about 20 minutes now & I haven't even begun to restore this thing.

    Well, we do a lot of different stuff. This is going to be 2 24x18" canvases & 1 60x40". got to get it set up to stretch & proof to the customer before we print. This isn't the norm though. We don't get this many vintage stuff.

    I know my bosses so well that we talk pretty much like family do. I mean that in a sense that I can yell at them and its okay. I think any normal boss would fire me for saying that the schedule was shit, but mine don't. These are people I've known for 4+ years.

    Some of the other department supervisors I don't really get along with, but it doesn't effect me since I'm not part of their staff. The general manager is kind of weird. He's younger than most of the other managers and if you talk with him you'll be stuck talking for like 45 minutes, but he's not a bad guy. He's extremely short, but can be really intimidating some times.
