List of Homer's jobs

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki

This is a list of jobs held by Homer Simpson.

One main source for these jobs is when he lists them to Marge.[1] Right before he goes to bed Homer tells Marge, "I’ve had a lot of jobs in my life: boxer, mascot, astronaut, baby proofer, imitation Krusty, truck driver, hippie, plow driver, food critic, conceptual artist, grease salesman, carny, mayor, grifter, body guard for the mayor, country western manager, garbage commissioner, mountain climber, farmer, inventor, Smithers, Poochie, celebrity assistant, power plant worker, fortune cookie writer, beer baron, Kwik-E-Mart clerk, homophobe, and missionary, but protecting people, that gives me the best feeling of all." Also a source is the "Picture a Day..." spoof where the last few seconds show jobs and other types of Homer prior to the 400th episode. According to an interview with Matt Groening, Homer has held 188 jobs in the first 400 episodes.

Default Job[edit]

The Springfield Nuclear Power Plant
His day job and main source of income.
Nuclear Safety Inspector
His job in the first season, before promotion to safety inspector. It was unclear to everyone (including his employer and Homer himself). He called himself a "technical supervisor". He was hired as part of "Project Bootstrap," a government program to bring in unskilled workers implemented by the Ford administration.[2]
Unnamed job in nuclear power plant, sector 7-G

In the episode "Much Apu About Nothing", Homer's paycheck is revealed to the world when he looks at the check and sees his pay is "drastically" short. It appears as an itemized check with the following:

Springfield Power Company
Employee: Homer J Simpson
Sector 7G
40HRS PAY....................................................................
Fed W/H........... $56.25 Bear Patrol Tax........$5.00
FICA..................$36.34
State W/H..........$10.45
Municipal Tax.....$9.37
Net Pay...........................................................................$362.19

When this is stretched over a year, it appears that Homer brings home $24,395.80 before deductions and $18,833.88 after deductions. It doesn't seem like he is getting what he deserves as a Nuclear Safety Inspector. Though given the plants less than stellar conditions this might be true for all other employees. However, in the episode "American History X-cellent", Carl exclaims to Homer, "Homer, that's a $60,000 bottle of wine!", which Homer, who is drinking the wine, replies "Woohoo! I'm drinking my salary!" which suggests that's his actual salary, or perhaps it has drastically improved.
