This is the second time someone started a thread on this topic and I'll say it again. It's amazing how many of you have amazingly interesting careers. Me, i spend my days getting yelled at by people. LOL. JK. I've been in retail for 24 years and retail management for the better part of the last 20 of it. Currently I have been a manager at Home Depot for the last 13 years. I got a degree in drafting and design before I left California and moved to a small town in Utah where I fell in love with small town mountain living. I commute over 40 miles everyday to get to my job but they take good care of me there. Due to the whole coronavirus situation though who would of thought retail management would become a hazardous career being considered an essential worker. But I always tell people one of these days I will step down and be the part time door greeter when its time for retirement. hahahaI am an Automation Engineer for a Rolled Aluminum, Aerospace and Transportation company.
I program the PLC’s and HMI whether it is Allen Bradley or Siemens.
I cut my teeth building custom automated machines. Worked my way up and was recruited to work for a major automotive glass company as a corporate engineer. I traveled from plant to plant to figure out machine issues. I spent many years traveling until I realized I was tired of hotels and airports. Quit the job for present one. Work 6am to 2:30pm and I can ride the Wolverine to work, only 12 miles through the woods. Next job will be a Walmart greeter

I was in Oklahoma City and there was a lady standing on the side of the outer road asking for handouts. We were stopped in traffic and watched the cops come tell her she had to leave. She walked down to the on ramp and got into a brand new Mercedes.I drive my midnight edition Duramax two city's over and stand on the corner with a cardboard sign. Thinking about taking my wife with me so I can get an RMAX2!!!
prior to my wife getting pregnant she worked as a nurse at the homeless shelter in a nearby town. Her guys were always begging in street corners with some sob story sign. All they were doing is taking the money and spending it on cheap booze and drugs. Our eyes were opened on the type of living that goes on with homeless people while she worked there for almost a year, but the abuse she took from some of these men, and the lack of back up from her employer, not to mention her being pregnant, led her to leave said employer. I wasn't one for giving out loose change in the first place, but now i really don't.I was in Oklahoma City and there was a lady standing on the side of the outer road asking for handouts.
