My turn: part-time jobs in high school doing cable TV installation and construction. Then 2 years in the Army as an Airborne Infantryman. Got out and worked as a car stereo tech for a year, then got into the semiconductor industry. Started out as a product engineering tech and worked my way up to senior CAD Support Engineer over 35 years. My job was to provide support for the software packages that the semiconductor manufacturers use to design and build all those computer chips that run our world today. Retired 3 years ago and never looked back!

Well, I spent 24 years as a regional maintenance supervisor for a property management company (mid-west and northwest), got tired of everything being a crisis and went back to school. Landed a job as a computer tech with a high school for gifted kids, been there for 10 years. Hope to retire within the next 2-3 years (or sooner).
I'll probably always at least work a few hours a day when I retire, just to keep busy. But it would sure be nice to take a few years off and see this beautiful country of ours!
And no, I won't fix your computer....

35 years in the trucking industry. I was a driver then a owner operator for 10 years graduated to a small fleet, sold out, and now am a shop foreman, head grunt at a trucking company. Should have gotten away from the dog eat dog business a long time ago, at least now I just have to work on them or tell somebody to do it and don't have to deal with the management part. I guess you stay with what you know, It's a comfort zone thing.

Over 40 years working in the transportation industry with 30 years dedicated specifically to air cargo. I got to do everything from fixing trucks to loading airplanes to selling air cargo services to driving trucks to management. I now know just enough about everything to be dangerous.

We were able to retire last year, sell the house, and now live and travel full-time in the luxurious Hotel Monterey.

Transfered to Barber Point, Oahu, Hawaii and flew the radar barrier from Midway Island to Adak, Alaska and back. Left the military in 1962 and worked as a Laborer on a pipeline with my Uncle. Never work for a relative, best advice I can give anybody. My Uncle worked my rear off. lol Worked for the Gas Co. for four years while trying to get on a Police Department. Police officer for almost two years until I had a run in with a Lt. (Never been to fond of mangement.) Worked at the Salt Mines in Amboy, Calif. the Iron mines at Eagle Mountain, Desert Center, Ca. Drove truck for 22 years for various companies and the went owner operator until I moved to Alaska, sold my Freightliner and flatbed trailer to a local farmer...Went to work in Mental Health counciling Parnoid Schizophrenics and then went to work part time a Zales Jewelers in Wasilla, Ak for a second job...Left to take a job as a salesman for a local car dealership and became a sales manager in two years, almost done, left Alaska in 2002 and retired in Oklahoma. Moved to Ca. in 2006 to a retirment community and finally bought an RV 5 month ago to see this great Nation with my beloved. (DW) Going on our first big trip in May, the good Lord willing. Whee, I am done.

Timeline:
1968 started working as a Plasterer's apprentice. Age: 15yrs. old
Worked at that level through Journeyman (1971) then as housing and buildings in general switched to drywall; I became a finisher.
As work slowed you had to be creative to KEEP working so through the years I became a Carpenter and worked as one about half the time until 1992.
Dang; Blew my back out....Soooo
Worked at anything I could find until 1997 where I took a job as a Maintenance man for a mental health agency in Cleveland OH.
In 2 short years I was a Director of Facilities which lasted until 2007 when I got myself downsized.
I now write specifications for housing remodeling for a Neighborhood Stabilization Program funded by HUD.

First six years right out of high school was spent in U.S. Army as Airborne Infantryman. Two tours in Viet Nam, last one ended my Army career thanks to one of the fellows from North Viet Nam. After recovering I was put out to pasture. I then hired on as a law enforcement officer and retired from that after almost 34 years. Enjoyed working, but enjoy being basicly free to do as I want even more.
