All I do while I’m at work is listen to podcasts, and this is one the most entertaining podcasts I’ve found. Brooks is a great host and always has such interesting and hilarious guests. I always recommend it to friends and family!

Every time I’m in the car for over an hour with my mom she always (without fail) asks if we can listen to “that funny podcast about the jobs” she thinks that Brooks is hilarious and I do too. 10/10 love this podcast.

This is a great podcast with a great variety of guests and hilarious stories that have me laughing out loud at work. Whenever anyone asks me for podcast recommendations this is the first one I throw their way.

This is a great podcast. The stories people have about their first jobs are hilarious.

So Iowan

by OldBay2013 on
Rating: ★★★★★

Taking a break from puddying at my job to write this important review. This podcast keeps me a little more alive inside even when I probably look dead to the world on the outside. The only downside is that I think I think I've started to be more Iowan. I'm from the big city (Des Moines), so aside from "pop" I think I've adjusted to life on the east coast. But now with Brooks' rat-trash townie influence, I've started using the phrase "alls I'm sayin" and I'm looking forward to going to red lobster for my birthday. Small price to pay though. Great podcast!

Believe me, headphones are necessary to enjoy this at work but it makes me day fly by. Very funny and entertaining podcast to listen to throughout the day and in the car as well to make you reminisce on your early days in the workforce! Keep the new episodes coming please!!

by Allofthenicknamesaretaken367 on
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast is funny and relatable. Unlike other reviews I highly recommend listening to this while at work. Nothing makes my day go by faster than listening to stories about people at work not working! The episode library is expansive and the guest selection is great. Highly recommend. 150 to DiCaprio.

Commenting for Leo

Brooks interrupts everybody!

by Cccccccccccccvcvcccc on
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

A somewhat entertaining podcast. The idea is good but the guests are kind of weak. And brooks interrupts every interview to tell his own stories. It doesn’t make for a good conversation/interview

Would like to hear from more women.

This is one of the funniest podcast I have ever listened to!! Hilarious host, awesome guests and just down right amazing. You have to listen to this podcast if you have ever worked an entry level job in your life.

Brooks is from my hometown??

by Meowpril on
Rating: ★★★★★

Kinda as a fellow Dubuque “native” his stories are hilarious. It’s great to know that everyone is awful at their first jobs. And I’m pretty sure the one day Brooks worked at target he worked with my dad. I’m probably biased but this podcast is one of my faves. And I’m glad I never missed out on never going to the caves.

The Cave is the Best

This podcast is great. The best part is the cave talk. A+ podcast highly recommended.

Great podcast, but could be better.

by Matt Leonardo on
Rating: ★★★★☆

I really like this podcast! I think it’s a really interesting subject and for the most part brooks does a really good job. However... there’s a couple things that I think could be better; 1. I could really do without Mike Burns during the intro. He’s kind of annoying and it seems like he’s only there to promote his own podcast. 2. Brooks really likes to inject his personal experiences in to every single interview. I hate that and I wish he wouldn’t do it. It’s pretty much the same stories every episode too. Four stars.

Do you have any entry level podcast merch? Possibly a coffee cup of some sort?

Extremely Helpful, It Really Works!

by Regan Kate on
Rating: ★★★★★

I listened to this podcast for advice on how to move up from my entry level job. The show is incredibly educational and offers tons of useful, practical life advice. The calm, easy-going pace is very soothing, and it never makes me laugh at innapropriate times in my daily life, unlike some podcasts. The host is a bit serious, but condsidering the topic I guess that's okay. I followed the advice to the letter, and now I'm up for promotion! Amazing! Where would I be without this strictly educational podcast? Thanks, Brooks.

I listen to this podcast while doing most of the things they talk about because I still don’t care about my workplace, so it cracks me up! Very relatable and hilarious. Sometimes I’m cracking up and a coworker 50 feet away glances over thinking I’m crazy ehhh WORTH IT!

Needs more cave talk

by Bgerc on
Rating: ★★★★★

Great hearing how people have struggled through the years & how they got to where they are. There is a definite lack of talk about caves though. I’m an EMT in Barrington, Illinois and when Brooks brings it up He glazes over what he actually did there. Needs more Barrington talk!

You are a big inspiration for me to become a comedian that performs live, I am 26 and have always felt kinda of out of place, I perform at open mics in bars, and other interesting places, I'm sure I have a good half hour of material in my one year of pursuing this, but you should know, until I really performed good and got a few laughs, I didn't know I had been missing the performance from my life, and with your podcast and youtube show, you now inspire so many more to embrace their funnier sides. Thanks!

They've got a mug. They've got tangents about the mug. There's a lot of talk about a cave. It's great. Listen to it.
