    What do you do for work?

    Most of us are old enough to have jobs here in the OTF. So what do you do for the daily grind, how do you get your dough?

    For me, I sit infront of a computer and browse the OTF, sometimes I help people solve their cell phone problems.

    If anyone needs any help with their cell phones or what not, feel free to PM me or post it up. I'd be more than happy to help.

    My grandpa lives on a farm. I went there last summer and helped him get hay into bails of hay. That was fun. Farms are peaceful.

    I'm a college kid who makes his money by delivering mail and cleaning up the cafeteria. However, that's all going to have to change in about a month and a half when I graduate and have to find something else to do with my life.

    Anyone want to give me a job? Bachelor's of the Arts with a major in political science. Anyone?

    Worked for Randalls for about 1.5 years and then quit because they were killing me on hours. Went to a Krogers (grocery to a grocery, it sucked) where I stayed and died for about 4 months. Eventully got offered a job at a breakfast diner where I work now, so much better. :)

    My brother worked in a grochery store for about the same time you did. He works where I do now. Although, my Dad is a head manager down at a QFC in Seattle.

    I am a nuclear chemist in research and development. My job is interesting, in the fact that I get to "play" with material that no one else wants to have around. Radioactive garbage is cool. Not only is the work pretty sweet, but the pay is good as well. The main focus I have to keep in mind is the very nature of the material I handle can kill. As long as I respect that, everything is gravy.

    Now, I don't know if your being serious or not. If you are, how long do people usually stay at that job (not if they get fired) but, like how long do they choose to be there?

    I have been here for almost 2 years now. We have had people retire after 39 years of service in the nuclear industry, but not as a chemist. I suppose that I can (and will) remain here until I get to retirement age. Currently, I am 28 years of age, so I have a few years to go.


    I really enjoy the work that I do. To me, chemistry makes the world go round. It makes a huge difference getting up in the morning and going to do something intersting, instead of the same routine day after day.

    Wow, that's awesome man. I'm guessing you probably wear a suit that protects you from the radiation. Is there anyway that your health is going to be affected by this?

    Seriously? Do you work for a specific car company or do you do all car models? That sounds REALLY fun. I used a little CAD in high school, it was fun.

    I work for a tier2 / tier 3 supplier (depending on the job) that makes tooling which assembles parts into another part for the car companies.

    Example the Vette Targa roof comes in many pieces the 2 largest are the skin and the reinforcement. Those 2 parts have to be assembled, with one the Frame (frame of the C6 being aluminum) having to be assembled to the Skin (a plastic material like plexi glass) you can’t weld and screws would be unsightly so I designed the tool that puts these 2 parts together (the frame of the Z06 is magnesium by the way, lighter than aluminum).

    Example 2 both the Skin and Reinforcement of the Navigator hood are a glass filled plastic and you can’t weld those either so again a tool is needed to assemble these parts.

    Just so you know a lot of the outer body parts on Cars and Trucks are now plastic with a metal reinforcement and they are glued together.

    Anyhow not much is actually made by the big car companies anymore. Pretty much the only thing the big car companies do anymore is the assembly portion.

    Anyhow what I like most about my job is that I get to see a lot of the new vehicles before the general public usually on a computer screen but sometimes I get to see the vehicle in “NO CAMERAS ALLOWED†areas like I did with the Jeep Commander, and the Hummer H3. DCX wouldn’t even let me take my phone in because of the Camera feature.
