    Winder on hydro generators in dams. Going to school this fall, however, with an eye on becoming a trooper.

    They will probably make you a "Plumbing Specialist".

    My father and I own our own pest control company. Very frustrating and at times very "lean" money wise.. But ultimately very rewarding. Our success is dependent on the quality work we do (most of our business is from word of mouth) and our overall positive attitudes.

    I also work at a warehouse in the early AM to make up for lost income in the "lean" months.

    I love working with my father. At times we can get irritated with each other but it gives me great quality tine with him in the office when we share stories of the jobs we went on and what odd things we come across.

    If I didn't do either, id work for a sporting goods store such as BImart and really overhaul their sporting goods section. Id make sure there was someone behind the counter as well as get some very sought after items on the shelf that they don't carry right now. Or pretty much anywhere that sells or purchased firearms.. Perhaps a pawn shop? :)

    I work at the washer factory putting the washers in the little boxes, a hundred at a time. It really sucks, because if they catch a miscount on the high side, they dump all the boxes and make me start over. I did get a small bonus once for averaging 97 washers one month, though :thumbup:
