I sent in an application for employment at the Massachusetts State Lotter today by mail. I will also send one by email. too. It is for a customer service rep position at the Lottery office in Woburn, MA which is close to my home. I applied for the same job last year around the same time but they werent interested in me. It is a job that I am qualified for. Most of the other jobs I am not qualified for and would have no chance getting. I will be 24 next month and I currently work at a Dunkin Donuts and been here for 5 years now. I would love to leave. Most times Im ashamed to say I work there. Thats why I play the lottery so I can quit. Being employed by the lottery would be the next best thing. According to the salary they pay on the job description, I would make more than double what I make at Dunkin Donuts full time in a year which would be amazing for me.

        If you work for the Lottery commission in VA you or your immediate family MAY NOT play the lottery or claim any prizes.

          Working at Dunkin DonutS is not too bad; the job is good but the pay is not good. Digging ditches is a bad job and the pay is bad. 

          Goodluck in your application!

            Dunkin Donuts is better than a fast food joint such as McDonalds, just serving Coffee and Donuts. I would take a job there if I could, trying to apply for anything at the moment.

              I Could not tell whether you were being humorous or not Ringo but...lol.
              Personally- you can only eat so many donuts then its time to turn the page.
              Hope you get the job, it should be a recession proof employment,  unless you caught tampering with the lottery gaming machines..

                I say the job is good considering the economy and also what you have to do while at the job. The worst duty at Dunkin Donuts that I could think of is cleaning the bathrooms. Now compare it to being a nurse. Yes you make top dollar but you have to put up with the worst of the worst every single day. Bed pans, infected wounds...you get the picture. The pay at Dunkin Donuts is kinda low so that sucks.

                      Salem is a fine town, although we used to burn Warlocks at the stake.  Let It All Out

                      (Not to be confused with burning witches in Salem, MA).   Hippy

                          I worked for several years on various printing presses in Georgia(USA) that produced scratch lottery tickets for numerous country's worldwide.

                           

                          It was a MOST interesting job.Learned a lot about prize structures, which are not favorable to us lottery players.

                           

                          This company produced billions of tickets each year on several presses they operated 24/7 including some holidays.

                           

                          A very lucrative business for state and other world goverment coffers.

                           

                          Players are generally the LOSER'S playing this game.....................

                            If you work for a lottery in your state, they still allow you to play lottery from another state???

                            How about a nation wide lottery like MM or PB?

                              I believe in Nc you can't play the lotto if you work for the lottery commission...that goes for scratch-offs and any multi and inter state games that they are part of
