After reading all of these, my job seems boring. I have been the dispatcher/office manager for a concrete plant for the last 21 years. One major perk is internet access anytime.

For 7 of the past eight years I worked at the casino in Milwaukee. Started as a floor bartender and was promoted twice, to Assistant Shift Manager, then Shift manager for the beverage department. Then the Rona hit. We we closed for 3 months then slowly but surely started getting called back. However revenue was not where they expected so in July we got notice that 2/3 of us were not coming back. After a brief stint in the Target Distribution Center, I now am a retail merchandiser for Sam's and Wally, and a side gig with Teachers on call, as a substitute classroom aide. In the fall plan on returning to college to finally finish my teaching degree.

I'm an accounting manager for construction projects in the power industry. I've worked in about half of the 50 states and it's taken me overseas. Those who have been around here for a long time have probably traded with me in several different states.

I am currently working for the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics. They are the company that builds submarines. I retired from the Navy in 2009 and it was really tough to find a job then. I took the chance on a company in Worcester, Massachusetts in their Quality department just to get something going. Figured I could get my foot in the door somewhere and then move on from there. I did that for about 4 years and then moved on to a company that specialized in valves and pumps for the defense industry. From there I got the offer from EB but they wanted me to move to Ohio. I happily complied and got to make really good money moving back home where it all started. Life has a funny way of working sometimes.
Pretty cool. I worked for AM General for 10 years before moving into advanced lighting. Most of the career was spent on the JLTV program.

I work in Physical Therapy in a busy outpatient clinic. I see anywhere between 8-14 patients a day and treat many different orthopedic conditions from head to toe. Been doing this since graduating college and 2008 and have been trading on The Bench avidly since I was 15. Great thread!

We deal a lot with each other and never really know anything about each other. So that brings up the question, What does everybody do for a living? Since I asked the question I will start, I am a Regional Quality Manager for ADM(Archer Daniels Midland). DG
Retired---- Director of Highway Operations State of CT, Department of Transportation. Responsible for engineering, maintenance and operations of ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems ) with 2 large operation centers. Items you see our our highways included variable message signing, cameras, speed detectors, traffic signal systems. It was a great time from 1980 to 2009 when I retired to be involved in the creation of technology for highways and arterials. Traveled the country as a rep. for CT on these technologies. Also on Governor's FEMA's task Force. Loved my job but loved sports collecting more. I'm still doing it. Will be reaching 70 this year. Jim

I verify freight on the receiving dock at a Walmart Fashion Distribution Center. I basically rummage through clothes all night verifying what's inside the cases and assigning them a spot inside our warehouse using a laptop,printer,scan gun and a cart.
