I was just curious what everybody does for a job here. I am in college and I'm not really sure what I want to do. Right now I am in my first year for mechanical engineering. Anyone do that? I want to hear about all kinds of jobs though :biggthump

I build airplanes. More specifically, Piper Aircraft. More specifically, interior parts for out flagship models (meridian, mirage). I also do product control and product inspection.

I like my job in that, it's technical and I get to use my hands. I don't like the lack of job security, and assholes I work with.

CE-LCMC Logistics Assistance Representative (LAR) AKA Senior Field Systems Representative. I work for the Dept. of Army Communications Electronics Life Cycle Management Command. (And you wonder why DoD uses acronyms!)

In a nutshell, I'm a systems engineer. ;)

EDIT:

Since you mentioned it below me, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my job. I wouldn't take another job ever, even if they offered me considerably more than I make now.

This is going great!!! I like to hear all this because my dad thinks if I'm not an engineer I'm going to be a failure. I ****ing hate Calculus, and I don't think i want to do that my whole life.

Let me also add that if you don't become an engineer you're not automatically a failure. I've heard of people doing something they love for a living. I've never really experienced it, but it seems like a great concept. Why become something you're later going to hate? I'm a 3rd generation Upholsterer. My father SWORE he'd never teach me. He wanted me to learn something different, that I wouldn't end up hating. Kinda tough not to learn when you grow up in an upholstery shop though.

I do server support for Dell. I like my job, the pay is nice. It's much better than being in the Air Force.

Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the Air Force, but it kinda sucks at the same time. I just don't like how the military OWNS you, and everything you do. You're in the Air Force 24-7. Also I hated having to shave everyday, and its nice now because I like having the option to wear whatever I want to work, not the same uniform pressed and boots shined. I like enjoying my freedom, when you're in the military, you're fighting for freedom, yet you don't have much freedom yourself.

It's nice being a civilian.
