Just curious to see what everyone does....

Recently got hired at a new place, Saline Lectronics.

Kind of cool...got interviewed a month ago and they finally decided to call a couple weeks ago.

Basically we manufacturer circuit boards here in the USA. Lots of machines, but what the machines can't do...they need people. That's where I'm at....Hand Soldering. I check, double check, triple check boards....clean em up, solder parts on....all kinds of stuff....

To be honest it does get a little boring after a while, but once you finish one job you get to move on to some different circuit boards...yaaay :wacko:

Not sure how long I'll work there, said they are fairly flexible with people that are going to school...like me.

$10 an hour, plus we're in overtime hours...usually 6am-2:30pm, now 6am-4:30pm. $15 per hour that's overtime...had 53 hours in last week.

Tired to say the least...

I am a service manager/lead service technician at a small engine shop.

Pays 15 bucks an hour, plus overtime, plus lots of other fringe benefits like use of company vehicle, free storage for my toys, and real flexible hours.

I basically get to come and go as I need to, but last week was 52 hours, and I am at 41 already this week.

The money's damn good though.

The best part is, I'm still in school...

I worked three years in a college caf dishroom as well as a member of the dorm maintenance crew. After I started law school, though, I needed more time for studying (not to mention multiple on-the-job injuries) so I took a job working for the apartment complex where I live as an on-site night manager and leasing agent. Worst. Job. EVER. An ulcer and several cruddy terms of school later I'm unemployed until I can get my grades back in order.

I'm used to doing manual labor sorts of jobs and when I had to quit that I was lost until I started working on fixing up my car. I'm new to the hobby but I'm trying my best to learn.

About 3 months ago, I took a job with an electrical contractor near me, doing fleet maintenance, and a number of other tasks. I'm the "shop guy" I guess you would call it- I do stuff in the office too though.

My boss is a true Olds guy- He has two 69's, one street car with 20k original miles that's been frame-off resto-rodded, and a 9 second race car, currently torn down. It feels good to be working on Olds stuff again.

Nothing better that getting paid for doing what you like to do.
