Default What do you do for a living.

I haven't seen this done before on this forum. If I missed it. I apologize.

I'm a material handler in the shipping and receiving department for a large pharmaceutical company in Cambridge Mass. I've been there for just over a year. It's an amazing place to work. I love it.

I work for an oil and gas EPC engineering company (offshore division). We design offshore production platforms. Here are a couple of pics from the project that I am working on. The construction is taking place in Louisiana and it is scheduled to set sail in 24 weeks.

Nice. And you got to retire at 52. Even nicer.

Our pension has unfortunately gone to hell, though. $50/credit year, 1900hr/credit year(anyone familiar with the trade knows this is quite improbable in a calendar year), and a retirement age of 65. We've basically gotta start lining up retirement on our own, otherwise we'll be at this a VERY long time.. Luckily our hall does have an annuity set up too, so it's not all bad... Aside from the embarrassing pension, definitely proud to be union...

Just retired from the US Air Force today--8/31/13! I was a Aircraft Electrician for 20 years and now I am in Denver as an Avionics QA inspector. I am proud of the time I served and of the places I have been; now I am happy to wear shorts to work and having facial hair.
