I didn't realize that I've been on drummerworld for almost two years and I've been at a new job for the last year.

I currently work for a garage door company/manufacturer called Amarr. It's a pretty big company throughout the US and Mexico. I work in a "door center" where we basically ship orders to contractors/garage door installers...we don't sell to the public or homeowners. However, if you go to buy a garage door at Lowe's...you will get a Reliabilt garage door, which is Amarr.

I do the same thing as my part time job, store #T1845 (wilkes-barre, pa). I'm currently taking a "break" from being a full-time musician and I started working part time at Target. You're right, it's not a bad job at all.

Me too :) guess we'll work that job together.

My day job is studying "Advanced Technology" at the university of Twente in Enschede, the netherlands. I hope to get a bachelor's degree in that study, after which I wanna get a master's degree in industrial design engineering. I get scholarship and allowance, but need to work 2 evenings per week to be able to get by comfortably. That job sucks: calling people for market research. I really hate that job but it's the only thing I can do for about 8 hours a week, with flexible planning.
Sometimes that job is fun though, when I get a really dumb person on the phone I can sometimes have a good laugh at how they react to my phone call.

I guess my dream job after getting a master's degree would either be a pro drummer, or working as a design engineer for companies like Tama, Remo, Pearl, Paiste...anything drumming related.

I deliver for a restaurant called Green Mill, which is fairly regional in the upper midwest.

I make minimum wage, but actually pull down about 25-30 bucks an hour with tips.

It pays the bills...

I also gig with various jazz groups pretty heavily and have been in a few well paid cover bands in the past. Looking forward to getting back into heavier playing, but for now the jazz is keeping me afloat both artistically and financially so I can't complain.

I work for an IT outsourcing company in the Vail valley of Colorado. There are lots of small businesses (and larger ones too) without their own IT staff, so we take care of their PCs, servers, networks, firewalls, etc.

I am an Account Manager - I have 1 client and I manage every part of their IT: servers, PCs, budgets, long-term planning, etc. It basically equates to an IT director position, except I do not work for the compant I support.

I had originally planned a career in music (went to Berklee, made a living playing and recording for several years) but later decided to go to college and graduate school for psychology and clinical social work. I'm currently working as a psychotherapist in an outpatient clinic.

I work as a person everybody hates. I sell things over the phone (tele.marketing?). But, I earn about $700 a month, and I don't have to pay taxes, bacause I am sixteen years old. So I do allright, I like to think. I can at least afford my own sticks! I also teach a student, that is currently starting up. That is very fun, and it is a great experiance both to me, and hopefully to him, as well.
Plus, I go to school every day to hopefully be a musician. (I go to a musical school, I have gone to school for 10 years, this is my 11th. What kind of school would I go to in the US.? College?)

...I work as a process operator in an oil sands upgrader.

Right now we are going through a very busy period, so that means lots of overtime, which means a little extra disposable income which means I have way more drum stuff than I really need.

I love my job.
