Sounds like working in the repair room at a national computer store chain (that is now out of business).

"Fix those 15 computers, while answering the phone every five minutes for people checking if their computer is done yet, let every customer on the sales floor stop you to ask what's on sale while you are trying to get a part for one of those 15 computers, and keep full notes on each work order's progress using the online forms written in ASCII ten years earlier."

Surprisingly, I increased my work output several percent just by buying my own tape gun. No more having to find where the overnight stock crew left them, to be able to tape the work orders to the finished computers.
