After the military (served under Grant at Vicksburg), I've spent my entire career in the manufacturing industry. Currently at Honda's Anna Engine Plant for the last 13 1/2 years. I was the training auditor in my department for almost 7 years, but got tired of all the crap and office politics/bureaucracy and went back out on the floor. And I love it.

I've worked at The Home Depot for a bit more than 6 years, where for the most part I have stocked freight. That is to change soon, as all of that responsibility is now going to part-timers.
I am not sure what department I am going to - but I do know I am aggressively looking for work elsewhere, as I am quite uncomfortable with the direction the company has taken recently.

GAC, everyone knows the floor is the place to be. If you like to be left alone by management, nowhere else offers that kind of freedom.

My father worked for Ford for 45 years, they finally convinced him to take a promotion in the office in year 42 and he complained about it until he retired. It may have caused him to retire.

I own an insurance agency for one of the big three. Think hands.

And here in Florida right now, I'm the devil.

I was off to law school when out of nowhere a chance to do this came up, and when I looked at the big picture, I jumped at the chance. Best job I've ever had. Within 5 months, we were second in our market (50 agencies stretching from New Port Richey to Orlando).

Since I got out of college I've been in sales. About six months ago I grew pretty tired of the erratic hours and the ridiculous amount of travel. A guy I know, who owns a slate and tile roofing company, was in need of someone to do copper work (which I had training when I was younger). I talked to my wife about it and I took the job. It is actually a tiny bit more money than I was making before, and I love it. I know my schedule every week, I have every weekend off. I don't have to deal with customers more than one or two days a week and even then it's only for a few minutes at a time.

I know eventually I'll go back into the business world, but right now I'm really liking what I do. I like working outside, even in January, The North Face coats are a wonderful thing. I've been in more snowball fights in the last two months than I've been in since I was a little kid.

I also coach girls basketball and softball and serve as an FCA sponsor for our school.

In the spring and summer months, I drive the starting gate for the harness races you see at the county fairs. I do several Ohio fairs and also a few in Indiana and Pennsylvania. I may get a chance to drive at Lebanon Raceway during the winter months a few times, but it hasn't materialized yet. This upcoming summer, I may also start getting involved with doing some photo finish work at the fairs that I'm not driving the gate at. If I could do this kind of work full-time I would because I just love it.

I am a Network Engineer currently contracted out to the Federal Government. I travel all over the country looking at the IT infrastructure of new or existing sites and design or redesign their router and switch configurations. Sometimes I get to configure and install the devices, but usually that's done by a team that works for me. I get to work with the Architects and General Contractors when they are putting up new buildings and I write most of the verbiage that goes on the blueprints concerning structured cabling and network/telephone rooms.

I play mainly online cash games. The live games here are much softer than online, and I do play at the boat some weekends, but online I can play 12-15 tables at a time, getting me over 800 hands an hour. Live I will be lucky to get 30 hands an hour.

I have been playing for a living for about a year and a half now and I love it. It can be very stressful (especially if you have a losing month), but the pros far outweigh the cons. Plus, I make way more money doing this than I would a regular job, so I figure I will ride the wave as long as I can.

I played online quite a bit in law school.

Eventually I just got frustrated with the number of people who played like total morons. It made it (for me, at least) far more difficult to bet effectively when two and three people at the table would chase flush draws all-in from the flop. When I'm at a casino, I can spot an idiot immediately by the way he carries himself at the table. Online, the recognition takes a little longer since I can't see him/her in person.

I love playing poker -- I wish I had the time and money to do it more often.
