What jobs did you do?

Can you describe some of the jobs you held while you were in the Sea Org?   How did they pick people for different assignments?  Did you have to go to different buildings or stay in the same place during those jobs?

Anyone that goes into the Sea Org starts out on the “Estates Project Force”, or “EPF” for short. I linked that to an extensive blog post I did about the EPF.

After the EPF, I worked in the mail room. I sorted mail, stuffed envelopes, delivered mail and stamped mail.

Then I worked in Central Files. Basically I filed away letters that were mailed out by us and in from outside the organization. We had an extensive collection of anyone who had ever contacted the organization. Each name had it’s own folder. One of my primary tasks during this time was scanning all of those files into an electronic database.

After that I worked in the sales area. I was a sales assistant; basically a secretary to someone who sold people Scientology services. I watched people put themselves into massive amounts of debt (25,000 – 200,000 dollars). I watched people take out second and third mortgages. Increase credit card limits. They would be in tears, on the floor, screaming in protest. But the good ol’ sales people were there to push them along.

Then I was sent to Florida to Scientology’s mecca where I was training. It was there I developed a same-sex relationship and was sent back to California. I spent the rest of my time working in the tunnels underneath L. Ron Hubbard Way in Hollywood, CA. I wrapped up and shipped out books and CDs. I filed old and moldy files away in the tunnels. For a period of time I worked in a small room that contained an industrial shredder. I shredded hundreds of thousands of pages for weeks. My snot used to come out all different colors because of the paper dust. I don’t know what I was shredding or why. I was crying or trying not to get yelled at most of the time.

None of it was really “religious” work, except for the few months of studying. It’s all basic jobs. In fact a lot of the basic skills I learned about filing and computer use and typing and phones and all that came in handy when I got into the work force.

    Like, literally? Adults? I just…I just can’t imagine this scenario.

    And no one thinks this is wrong? Not the person on the floor? Not the others watching the sales person push the one on the floor to sign on the dotted line?

    I just can’t wrap my head around this.
    If this kind of event isn’t enough to shake someone to walk out, what does it take?
