i am a janitor for the city.
as bugs bunny would say
meh, it's a livin.....
I was employed as an interstate transportoligist for over 4.5 million miles. I also worked in auto dealership parts sales, rail car fabrication, retail dairy sales, among other things... Now I just aggravate forum users......
PS:Also worked as a truck mechanic, motorcycle mechanic, and worked in the oil field.
Currently unemployed and searching diligently. I run the gambit of unskilled labor, warehouse, retail, and kitchen jobs as my mode of employment, but it's not easy getting your foot in the door when you have hordes of Illegals ready to take that same work for wages I could hardly pay my rent on much less afford to eat.
Anyone in the Minneapolis area that has a job opening I would love to take it!
I'm a Professional Domestic Engineer and my other job is a Diva only on the weekends.
< Retired from the city currently doing the same as ^, except for the Diva part. Is there such a thing as a Divo? Yes, I know there's a band with that name. lol
No, you and B/W are interior decorators......
Prayers sent that you will find something soon.
My brothers are currently relocating to North Dakota around Willis or Wilson, or something like that. They are following the oil boom up there. They heard there is lots of warehouse jobs in that area. They claim that they are paying people 14 bucks an hour just to flip burgers. Can't really say that its true, just what they heard. So they packed their bags, tents, and etc. and off they went. Just in case your willing to relocate.
I am working as a building engineer...... fancy title for building maintenance. Hvac is my main trade.
That is probably Williston, ND. One of my brothers delivered som oil field chemicals to a Halliburton facility there last week.
I work for the DoD and have been for the last seven years. Before that, I was a Physical Therapist.

Sparky, 220, 221 whatever it takes.
Been fighting fires for the last 16 1/2 years. Still love my job and wouldn't trade it but I hate the politics that go with it. I've been working with a bad attitude for the last 2 years because of the politics. The 1st pic is me getting beat up at a 5 alarm fire and the 2nd is from a diaster drill at the entrance to the lincoln tunnel (I have my back to the camera sitting on the truck).
THAT"S IT!!!!! Could remember that to save my life. Memory is going and I'm only 44.
Been hacking...errrr, I mean protecting Information systems for about 12 years now. Used to be a volunteer firefighter during some of that time but my back and knees have gotten to bad so I had to quit. It's ok, that job didn't pay but the security one pays well enough to support my gun habit. :-D
I hope for your wifes/girlfriends sake, that's a water hose!
I always wanted to be a fireman!
To those who are unemployed, My prayers go out to you that you all find gainful employment soon!
Sparky as well
