The Job Thread!

Postby Account20151023 » Mon Jul 07, 2008 3:33 pm UTC

Didn't look like there was a work thread up, so I'm starting one. Everyone's got something to do, so here's where you can post it and bitch about it with everyone else who's got the same type, or learn what's good and bad about an industry you haven't tried.

I work at an EPC company called Fluor Corporation. EPC means Engineering, Procurement, Construction, meaning that we desigin buildings, bring together the materials to build buildings, and then build buildings. We have 40k employees and have an annual revenue of around $1 bill. I work in the Power Group building power plants. Right now, I'm assigned to the Oak Grove dual-cycle coal-fired plant in Texas. I work in the home office in South Carolina. My discipline is Project Controls, which are the people who oversee the other disciplines (read: narc them.) My position is associate project controls specialist (read: spreadsheet guy). I deal with cost, labor forecasting, baselining (functional contract work), and basically any grind work they throw my way. My hours are weekdays from 7:30 to 5:30. I have three bosses, and they're all awesome.

I work for a civil engineering firm in the state of Georgia that has the lion's share of all Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) road, highway and bridge projects, Moreland Altobelli. The CEO is a former GDOT commissioner by the name of Tom Moreland, for whom the [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Moreland_InterchangeTom Moreland Interchange[/url] was named. Most people in Georgia affectionately call it "Spaghetti Junction."

We've done other projects, like some parks and recreation design, prison designs, enviormental work, soil testing, land surveys, right of way acquisition (worked in that department for four years before being transferred to satellite office), and other duties.

I work in one of the satellite offices, where we manager a lot of the SPLOST (Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax) road projects for Douglas County, Georgia, which is where my office is located. I do a lot of administrative stuff, like answer phones, send out packages via Fed-Ex, schedule meetings, take notes at said meetings, as well as some financial stuff like handle billing from various contractors for various projects currently under construction, maintain monthly project finance reports from County, and other odds and ends.

I'm taking a year out before uni and I'm technically on a 'placement' rather than having a 'job'. But it all works out the same in the end except I only have 39 working days left (and 15 minutes ...).
I'm a software developer in a smallish (~60 employees, 13 of whom are developers) IT company. Our development team does bespoke software for small-to-medium sized businesses (and a couple of big clients, too). We revere M$ like they saved our baybees are a Microsoft Gold Partner. We do a lot of company intranets, content-managed websites, and whatever little bits-and-pieces of internal stuff that long-standing clients want, with the occasional bigger or more interesting project.
My hours are theoretically 9 - 5:30 Mon - Fri, with an hour for lunch, but it's very rare for developers to take more than 20 or so minutes for lunch, and depending on deadlines or emergency situations, 'hometime' can be 5, or it can be going home at 9 to remote onto your machine and work some more. :P

I work for a big corporation that goes after war contracts. Lots of money to be had there. Hours are flexible, rarely over 40 hours a week. Pay is competitive. Not a whole lot to complain about. I mean, I'm posting on the webz during business hours rite?

I work as a kitchen helper in a smallish restaurant. The pay is not as bad as I thought it would be, but it could be better.
I have actually been thinking about getting some other kind of job after I get out of army, maybe some sort of a machinist, CNC maybe.

Personally i think Job got the shaft. It was really wrong what God and the Devil did to him, and especially that God was such a dick about it at the end. On the plus side, he got a new house, new animals, and indeed even a new family so i guess it all works out in the end.

Except for his original family, who were all killed.

hopefully they actually like me and arent desperate to fill a role.

I'm still fairly new to my job (just a few months) and I've still got a lot of learning to do -- my boss told me he was here a couple years before every little piece finally all clicked together and really made sense. Anyhow, I'm an engineer at a smallish company that deals mostly with automation/control for utility SCADA systems. A big part of what I do is designing and testing such systems. I think what excites me most is that I'm really going to be able to make use of my background as a Computer Engineer. A lot of our systems have some logic/coding that go along with them, and I work a lot with hardware and I'll eventually be designing systems.

I just started my first real (post-college) job a month ago. I think its going to be fairly fun and interesting. I do supply chain management consulting. Basically i customize and implement software to allow warehouses to better manage inventory, and save money on labor costs. It may sound mind-numbingly boring (at least describing it bores me whenever someone asks me what i do) but warehouses are actually all very different. For example a beer warehouse is different from a warehouse that distributes menus is different from the a Dallas Cowboys merchandise warehouse (all real clients). Plus I'll get to travel around American to actually be on site at these types of places.

Does being an academic count as a job? I'm a physics postdoc. The pay is so-so, work hours are flexible (sometimes TOO flexible), and the job satisfaction (for me, anyway) is high. Plus, it's kinda fun seeing people's eyes widen when I say "I'm a physicist" -- that has to count for something, right?

Well, (not to get nostalgic) my dad always told me that there are three aspects to a job: the money, the location, and the job itself. Almost no job has all three. If you got two, you're typically content. If you got one, it better be outstanding. If you got none, get a new job. I've tended to find this measure to be pretty accurate.

I do tech support for a company that sells screen readers/magnifier applications for the blind. So its a kinda software company, except we don't produce software; only sell/distribute/support the stuff. Currently i'm a tad overstressed and underappreciated... but it tends to be good conversation point, as helping the blind sounds fairly charitable.

I'm a flight test engineer for the Navy. I just started six months ago and unfortunately we have been in a bit of a drought lately. But soon we'll be going out on my first test. My office is responsible for creating the wind envelopes for helicopter/ship operations. Basically, we go out to the ships with diffrent helicopters and test how well the helicopters can land and takeoff from the ships in various configurations. I'm pretty excited it's going to be a lot of fun, but a ton of work too. I've been told I get to take pictures off the flight deck of the ship as the helicopter is coming in :shock: We generally work with smaller ships, but the carriers need to be certified for helo ops too. So when we go out to the carrier, a tour of the flight deck is always on the agenda. When I have engineering work to do, work is tons of fun. But because of this dry spell I've been sitting around trying to find things to do lately. That gets annoying.

By this measure: The money is ok, but will be getting better due to a regular promotion schedule for the next two years. Roughly an extra 20k by the time I'm done. I like the location (Lexington Park, MD), but some people dislike the "smallness" of it. Mostly city-folk complain about this, I like a bit of fresh air myself. My only regret is it's about a 19 hour drive home, so umm I haven't seen my family or fiance in a while :( And the job itself is really interesting and has been getting even better as this test approaches!

I hear you on the distance. Fluor's gonna be sending me into the field to the Newmont project in Elko, NV in a while. My boss said "Guess what, Boman, we're sending you to Newmont! It's only 2 hours from Las Vegas!" I replied "Well, awesome, but what is there to do in Elko?" And to that he said "It's only two hours away from Las Vegas!" So I'm not stoked about it, but I'll probably just play alot of Team Fortress 2.

I think I'd throw a 4th into that triad : coworkers. You can love your job (what you DO) and not the people (who you do it WITH).

Currently I am simultaneously unemployed and a business owner. It's interesting. I was brought into a small business and own a chunk of it, but need a side job to pay bills with for awhile.
The business I'm a part of is a LAN Center (Cybercafe, PC Bang, Game Center, etc). I've worked in similar type businesses for 5+ years and I love it. I love every part of it. This time around I may actually enjoy the people though. :p

I'm an electrical/hardware/firmware engineer at a massive defense contractor. Basically, they pay me to play with stuff all day. Still not sure how I feel about the prospect of working for The Man on longterm basis, but I'm really rather enjoying myself with this so far. Much as I wanted to get into digital circuits, I think I actually wouldn't have liked the jobs there. The one interview I had was for a position where I would basically do nothing but design standard cells all day long,with promotions to design bigger ones. I would go crazy doing the same thing all the time. Here, I've worked on three or four wildly different things already and it's only been 6 months.

As always, that depends on the specifics. For me, the job and money are pretty darn good but the location less so.
Spoiler:
I was actually expecting to like the location but not the job (didn't really ever want to work defense) but that's not how it worked. I guess the town would be ok if I had friends, but I'm having a hard time finding people and it's gotten such that I'm so lonely and miserable that if I don't manage to change this spectacularly by the time my year is up then I'm outta here.

Computer engineer for a big bank.

It's okay. Corporate IT is big money and lots of red tape. If you want a fun, exciting job working with the newest technology in software and hardware, don't work for a bank. Banks are big and sluggish and move slowly to adopt new technology - we're trying in vain to find quality support for Solaris containers, for example. However, they are a bastion of job security, and all the pros and cons that go with that. (Imagine dealing with the same idiots, just in different roles, for years.)

The pay is stellar, the benefits are great, but the hours can be hellish if you don't establish some boundaries. Don't start out at a bank, but you might want to do a stint there once you're established. It's an interesting experience.

I work for a Non-profit Corporation that owns hospitals, clinics, practices, and DI centers. I make more money now than I did working for a casino that measure its' profits in the billions.... That's right, I make more money at a non-profit than I did at a casino. I also have less job responsibilities, fewer hours (they really start to get upset at me when I don't gtfo at the end of the day, though they have no problem paying me for the OT that I inevitably acquire), and my manager actually does his own work, which is new to me. All in all, I love this new place, and I'm hoping they buy out the hospital in my hometown (it's going down the tubes) so I can do rotations 5 minutes from my house.

This summer, I'm teaching Lego-related engineering classes (building vehicles and fighting robots, for instance) to elementary-school-age kids. Satisfying, and yet quite frustrating at the same time.

At school, I'm a member of a group that does physics demonstrations for elementary school audiences in the hundreds; this year, it's quite likely I'll be coordinator (responsible for scheduling shows, procuring supplies, and driving to shows). No guarantees yet, but oh so awesome anyway. All the liquid nitrogen you can drink.

I work for the ambulance service, in a security management / risk management role. It's my job to ensure that whenever there is any form of incident, such Johnny the Paramedic injures himself, gives the patient the wrong drug, drives into a wall or another vehicle, is assaulted, is robbed, witnesses something ugly or is involved/the cause of something ugly and so on... alllllllllllllllllllll the way up to and including bad people trying to blow up my nations capital (07/07 anyone? ) is dealt with effectively, protecting the trust, it's interests, the staff and the general public.

It doesnt pay as well as it should, means long hours and I have seen things that you people wouldnt believe... but it sure beats data input.

I help maintain the email system and some file/print servers at a university. But I'm currently studying Finance to try and get a job looking at numbers all day.
