Add me on to the Foster's Train... because I do the same thing...Fosters said:I build subdivisions - actual title: Project Manager in Land Development. Or commonly referred to as "a greedy developer". I started in Civil Engineering designing subdivisions, and a developer called & offered more $$$.
I like what I do. Other CE's will agree that it is pretty cool to see a corn field when you first get the project, and a couple months later people are living in houses there.
El_Presidente said: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.
I had a high school friend that did that for a few years a few years ago. He loved it too.OptimumSE-R said:Well, i've been working with Alaska Airlines (intern) as an AMT. but im a ramp agent at LAX. load bags and cargo into planes. Its cool. i love the environment.

As for me, I am an economist for the government. With degrees in economics there is not too much choice in where one works - government, academia, and some limited private industry. I would suggest to most people looking to get degrees in economics; not to unless they really love it.
And for those in enlisted in the armed forces, being an officer is not that great due to up-or-out ... and other things...
Can you tell me. Is it just me or is the current Directv DVR just the biggest POS ever?b13se-rluver said:Well I work for DirecTV right now as a phone tech and surprisingly enough I enjoy it. I talk to people and help 'em fix their Receivers and other stuff. I just think I should explore other areas instead of "doing what my dad did". Thanks for all the suggestions and it looks like we work a wide variety of jobs!! :biggthump

edit...I hate my job and can't wait to be a 'nasty civilian' again. it has it's pro's and cons...but like 5 pro's to every 100 cons. most of the pros are like...you get free beer in some bars, women think you're a total badass (whether you are or not) and even though i sit behind a desk, will never go to Iraq after 4yrs and haven't been able to do anything i've wanted to...people back home are always so proud of me like i am out there fighting the war. i want to be, but don't believe those damn commercials. it's not what you want...just like whats his face said...the military OWNS you...it's what they want. you're just a number in the military. no one really cares about you. and the ones that do...can't do sh*t for you. if you ain't got that bling on your collar...you don't have a name, face or soul...you're just another number to them.
stay away unless you're totally down for the selfless service or you are going to be homeless...those guys enjoy it because they came from nothing or are way proud of this damn country that they'll risk their life for some fake ass reason guys in dark suits and red ties make up to make them rich and to get us out to war. it's like going to a halfway house...even the homeless are down for that. if you still have the ability to do something about your situation, you're better off staying away.
THe R15 is a sh*tty receiver. Usually DirecTV doesn't even remanufacture them properly and it is a horrible design. People love TIVO, why change it? That is my thought. So many people call in pissed off about it. It is really sad actually.jrbump said:Can you tell me. Is it just me or is the current Directv DVR just the biggest POS ever?
