  1. Material Handler.
    I always keep my forklift certification current. It makes getting a day job after a failed tour easier and quicker.
    I am afraid to go back out for less than serious $$$ these days, so MH it is for now.

    I'm also a production worker and drivers assistant. You get lots of $$$ for doing two jobs almost at once ( we deliver our jobs[mailings] at 6pm, after all the other mailings are done, and I get to take them out n' stuff like that.)

    My job sucks. I tell people I'm an unemployed musician, it's better than telling them where I actually work, currently looking into some career prospects for a real job though.
     
  4. I work in a record store called second spin, and it kicks major a**.
     
  5. Former Electrician. Recently fed up with the up and down of construction, I now work at a metal fab shop that makes aluminum access covers and other related products.
     
  6. Accountant for a government contractor in DC. As boring as it sounds.

    I am a night watchman in a day nursery.
     
  11. Currently head of maintenance dept. for a auto shop, 7-5 m-f health and dental. It's a good gig. I've worked just about any and every job you could imagine. Lived in several different states. I'm the kinda guy that will try anything just for life experience. It's been quite the adventure so far (I'm 34)

    I own & work at a small company that installs voice & data cabling. Economy has started to suck the life out of it lately though. Pretty soon might have to find real job.
     
  14. Retired after 36 years with GTE/Verizon as a warehouse worker, it was a straight Mon. through Friday day shift job, so it worked well with weekends playing music,
