  • So what do you guys do for a living?

    Just curious as I'm always amazed at the background diversity among groups like this. It's usually pretty cool.

    I work in the Occupational Safety & Health field. Been up here in TN for about 8 years now. Before that, I worked on various construction projects all over the country and one stint in the Caribbean for about a year.

    I enjoy it, most days.........LOL.

    I could have swore we had a thread for this but I can't find it.

    I spent 9 years in the Marine Corps from 1996 - 2005 and that allowed me the opportunity to become a DoD IT contractor.

    Been doing that ever since down here in Sunny, I boat all year long, Tampa, Florida!!

        Civil engineer for site development until the economy died. Now I am an assistant plant manager and metrics coordinator (take care of the timecard computer program and employee roster etc.) for a company that contracts to CAT. So, I guess I am a manager for a logistics company.

          For 35+ years I was Senior Project Manager, Engineering Manager & Chief Engineer in the Material Handling Field; Automated Storage & Retrieval Systems, Conveyors Systems and Distribution Center Design. I retired almost 2 years ago and sit on my butt most of the time now; I miss the "needed" part of business. My current philosophy is "why do today what you can put off untill tomorrow".

                      I'm currently an engineering project manager, which is a fancy way of saying I do a little bit of everything. The company I work for has two main product lines, single point watering systems, and a marine line. Single point watering (SPW) means we make a fill valve or flooded lead acid battery cells. Instead of topping each 2 volt cell, all the valves are plumbed together and you water the whole battery from a single fill point. We make these systems for hi-los, golf carts, RV's, etc. Marine side is mainly livewell plumbing and control. Check out the website, Prior to this, I worked in automotive for 10 years as a manufacturing engineer, doing assembly and machining.
