The difference between the Surveillance and IT cold rooms in my casino are like night and day. Both have to be kept at 68 degrees, but our Surveillance Tech is a wire management freak. When I had to replace a monitor at my work station and didn't feed the video cable behind a rail he went off on me for 5 minutes for being sloppy... The IT Room looks like a bomb went off.

well all of you have very great jobs, and I have had a few great ones also in my time. From cook, store manager, branch manager, web designer, truck driver to a certified GM Technician.

 

But none and i repeat none of my old jobs compare to the job I have now.  I am a stay at home dad, with 3 kids that live with me and 2 kids that don't and a wonderful wife.

 

I worked as a GM Technician for around 9 years and was banking big money and always thought that was the life. But I will tell you that being a full time dad and seeing my kids grow up is one of the best jobs a parent could ask for.

 

This means a lot to me and most of you know why. I am just happy I get to see them grow and hope and prey I get to see them for many years to come.

 

and it may not pay well hell it don't pay shit LOL but I would not trade it for anything in the world.

I think most of you know what I do. I'm a web designer and front end developer. My wife is a developer and we started our own company about 3 years ago. Our have clients all over the world of different sizes. Sometimes it's iOS development, sometimes its hosting companies, sometimes it's real estate companies. It's all over the place which keeps it fresh and challenging. We both work from home full-time and are currently taking care of 12 puppies. So that is why you don't see me on too often right now.

Currently, I am stuck in an employed-no work zone lol.  I have been everything from a line cook, truck stop manager (as well as the taco-bell and bojangles inside), to USAF Pararescueman. I am now employed with a company called "Carolina Premium Beverage" and we are one of the larger beer distributors in this area.  I don't necessarily love my job but I get free beer every week, soooooooo, I will keep this job as long as they will have me lol because beer isn't for me, unless it's for free!  I have had some other crazy jobs: I worked as the sheet metal washer for a company called power curbers where I had to where full body thick rubber suit and thick rubber boots as well as a helmet with air being fed into it and out due to the sulfuric acid I had to work with daily and the phosphorous in the large filtered water system used to power the extremely hard to control gun lol.  It took me about two weeks to get the hang of just man handling this pressure nozzle. The first two or three days, I was on my ass more than I was on my feet because it was just that powerful.  I've also worked for Freightliner (while in college to help pay tuition) and my most favorite job was working for the Japanese at NGK Ceramics.  Learned a lot of japanese and met even more.  That's my story (some of it).

I'm an IT Field Service Technician at a Charter School until this Friday. Starting Nov 10, I start work as a Senior Field Service Technician at a major hospital. I enjoy troubleshooting and fixing computers, helping people understand that computers are our friends; and with the new job, I'll finally be paid well for doing it!

I have a degree in Applied Physics (which I never used), but I still love physics and try to stay current with the ever-changing theories of the nature of the universe. I write and record songs, write poems and short stories, but stay grounded in reality by my wife and kids, and working with computers. I love gaming, and have been playing them since I received "Pong" for Christmas one year.

One of my favorite poems I wrote:

Crack the Sky

Today I heard we cracked the sky
Scientists found a way to pry
Between the seam of time and space
To sneak a peek at some new place
Perhaps to see the face of God
Or find some particle that’s odd
But all we found when we looked in?
We could not close it back again!

 

Edit**  

 

Glad to say, the job is working out much better than I could have imagined. These are, without a doubt, the shortest 8 hour days I've ever worked in my life. I run... well, walk very fast... all day long, averaging about 4 miles a day (according to my FitBit) all over a major hospital, talking care of practically all IT issues, ranging from bad keyboards, to deep troubleshooting issues that defy all human logic. (those are usually some dumbass' f-up, and a friggin' Gordian knot I spend hours on, just to finally re-image and move on). The only thing better than the job is the pay. I go to work every day and thank God for this opportunity! I LOVE MY JOB!! (never thought I'd hear that from me again). Did I say, "Thank you, God??"

Currently my job is being professional private security. This is more than what you might think which is Walmart Security (@BadBadRobot thinks this >.>) or one off those sleeping guards at a guard shack watching monitors.

 

What I do is a lot more fun and no chance on sleeping. For the most part we're bouncers, but we do more than that. We excel at concerts and special events. I've worked many big and small names in music for concerts, including Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Tech N9ne, 311, Juicy J, Think Floyd USA, Scotty McCreary, Eli Young Band, Kip Moore, and many others. Next Memorial Day weekend I'll be working a country event with headliners Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, and Rascal Flatts. Also working an ICP concert sometime this month..

 

One part that makes my company I work professional is the attention to detail. Both owners are Marine veterans with at least 15 years in. The main owner was an Anti-Terrorism Specialist and is currently working his way towards a Master's Degree in Counter Terrorism. The other owner, while I do not know much about him, what I do know is he was a National pistol and rifle shooter award winner and other fun things so being able to hit the range with him is truly an honor.

 

When I say we aren't run of the mill, I mean it. Every security officer hired on goes through our Basic Security Officer training, as well as gets trained with the applications of Chemical Munitions (Pepper Spray on steroids), Tactical Batons, and Handcuffs. I myself carry each of these things to each account I work. Once you get higher up in the company (which is something you have to earn as it's taken me over a year to get to this point) you'll be trained on various FEMA classes and techniques including the Anti-Terrorism classes which the owners feel strongly about. We do have armed positions as well, which I'm currently trying to save money to obtain my permit to carry and CCW. We currently hold the accounts for gate guarding and general guarding for three big military facilities in my state, as well as Anti-Terrorism for various municipal places such as a Water Treatment plant. We also have a High Risk Tactical team, which is my ultimate goal to achieve, which do various things such as aid in various terrorism-related things as well as other things I frankly can't talk about.

 

Working for this company over a year now has greatly changed how I see things. Admittedly, before I worked here, I was not the strongest-willed of people..but that has changed me for the good I think. I have a much greater respect for the military and what it does, as well as a stronger discipline when dealing with ignorant idiots. Trust me..I deal with drunks and just plain stupid people a LOT. It has also, physically, made me better as I have taken a Defensive Tactics course taught by one of our captains who was a SWAT instructor for over 10 years. I must say I do quite enjoy putting drunks and abusive people in a full nelson, lifting them easily off the ground (I say easily cause I'm a tall mofo :P) and carrying them outside. Now I'm not a hardass by any means..my method is this: Treat people with kindness until given a reason not to. That means if someone is drunk and verbally abusive, for example, then I would first try to talk them down, and help them out of the bar safely. Should they attempt violence at anyone (aside from me) or to come back at me after I see them safely from the establishment, then I'll kick it up a notch and move them physically to their new location. And on those rare occasions I've actually had to use my OC Spray, or my handcuffs, I use those only when needed and for only the thing they are needed. My Tactical Baton, however, I've only had to deploy once, but have never hit anyone with it, for various reasons. For one, it's a police issue baton that was my grandfather's, and it rather heavy compared to modern collapsible batons. For another I have a long arm and should it get to swinging that, anything I contact will break, including bone. Now the time I had to deploy it was for a mass street fight and I used it defensively to warn the combatants to get away from the patrons off the establishment...needless to say they heeded my warning :) Now I save the actual hitting of people with the baton for one things, well, primarily one thing... and that's the idiots who decide they think it's right to hit a woman...they best hope someone knocks their ass out before I get to them :)

 

 

 

Now, for the TL;DR losers, I'm an awesome security officer whom has been trained in many ways to help keep the public and those whom I protect safe and able to have a good time with what they are doing :)

He's 16. Then again he's 16... fake ID's are wonderful and if you can afford a good one you can afford going to the strip club lol...

And then you get guys like me, @Preacher, who spend lots and lots of time looking at both real and fake IDs.. I have quite the collection of fake IDs :P Confiscated of course. Had a guy the other night sit right there and front of me and try to decide which of the five IDs he had to give me. Well I took them all and sent him on his merry way :)

Carried a 9mm, O/C and an expandable baton (certified MEB Trainer). Not just because I was obviously most proficient with it, but by far the baton is my favorite weapon. I never wanted to shoot my 9 due to large groups of people and OC spray either just passes people off or it gets all over you and others while subduing a subject. In short I made it 2.5. years dealing with drunks, miscreants and what not before I decided to watch through a camera instead...
