The answer depends on the specific job you are looking into.

I work as a professional in the Tax department of an Accounting firm. To be a manager here it takes 6+ years. We get paid twice a month on the 15th and 30th and the salary depends on your level and experience. Any specific job salary can be googled to get an average for people in your area. Usually those in big cities get paid more because the cost of living is higher, so each region can vary greatly. We are allowed to have headphones in while we work at my company but each company may have a different policy on this. I'm not sure what machines you're referring to but most companies will have trainings for new hires, especially those without prior experience.

Can you please tell us what job it is you are interested in? It will help us to be able to answer your question.

In some jobs you can move up to manager within a few years. An example is a fast food restaurant. But in other jobs, it takes years of experience, plus education, to be able to move up. An example might be Production Manager at a beverage bottling plant. So it all depends.

Managers make some good money, but, they also put in long hours. So, if you are working 40 hrs a week for $15/hr, ($31,200/yr), and they offer to make you manager for $35,000 a year, it may not really be better. For example, if you now work 45 hours a week, that averages out to $14.95 an hour. Plus, managers are sometimes exempt from overtime laws. They cannot make overtime. Some employers will let them take extra time off to make up for it, but not all of them do that.

Some jobs allow you to wear headphones. Some don't. If you are sitting at a desk all day doing data entry, you might be able to wear them. If you are working in a warehouse, or in construction, it would be a safety hazard. You would not be able to hear someone warn you to watch out for a falling object. If you work in a job that requires communication with co-workers or customers, you probably cannot wear them.

Some jobs are paid weekly. Some are paid every other Friday. Some are paid twice a month (15th and 30th). My last job paid me only once a month. That requires a lot of financial self-discipline!

Hope this helps!
