Default Mason

I'm a mason's helper. I'm not really an apprentice 'cause I'm not all that into it. I just needed a job that pays well. I'm a good hard worker who shows up everyday, and I'm not hungover or all drugged out from the night before so I can really contribute to my boss's bizniz.

I moved out to the boonies from the big city ten years ago and good paying jobs are scarce. I did a few jobs before landing this one last year. This is the first one that pays anywhere near well.

I'm 50 years old and this job kicks my @$$. It's hard heavy labor and I'm just a skinny ****. The only real prob is it cuts into my practice time. I get up around 4 - 4:30 am just so I can get in a couple hours. Too tired after work. (OK OK -- cut the violins pls!)

I'm a trainee solicitor. Well, trying to be anyway. I got into it to specialise in Intellectual Property (Trade Marks, Copyright etc) and am currently stuck in a Dispute Resolution department. I am looking for another trainee job in a firm more suited to my taste and skill.

I work for an armored car company out here in Vancouver BC Canada (G4S), and my lead singer/rythm guitarist works there as well. He's the guy ( bastard) that got me into this crazy ass hobby, er, I mean, he introduced me to the band, bless (damn) his heart (soul to hell)...

I have had many jobs. My job in California, before I moved to WA State, I was a baker & chef in a vegetarian cafe, since there is not any vegetarian food places here ,I took on a job I can do at home. I am a customer service telecommunications model actress, you know , the hot girl ads you see on late night tv or the ads in the back of those men's magazines you call for 99cents a minute. It is a fun job and I can work when ever I want.
I am nothing like the Aerosmith video!!!! LOL

I've done it all from sales, to customer service, to retail, management, corporate, fraud claims for a major bank, and got nothing but an anxiety and panic disorder...

So I moved onto something completely new...I'm now a registered pet nurse (RPN), and work for a veteranarian hospital...I love it, it's the most satisfying job I've ever had, and can actually smile going into work everyday...I just had back surgery done too, so I'm missing it right now, but I'll be back there in no time :D

I've been a copier/printer/fax technician (the guy you love to hate) for the last 25 years. Drumming helps me relieve the tension brought on by the stupid things that some people do to their office equipment.BOOMCRASH!!!!!

I'm the guy that comes to your house or business and fixes your broken Dell computer.

I work for a company out of Dallas, Texas. I travel to sites (businesses and homes) to repair, install, and troubleshoot computers (mostly Dell), printers, and networks. I drive between 700 and 1000 miles a week. Lots of windshield time! lol And lots of overtime (makes the band gig difficult).

All and all, a good job...Let's me live in the middle of nowhere and not work in a factory.

Uni at the moment. In 2012; a product design engineer working in the automotive industry. Hopefully I can get in on Toyota or the sports division of a European company. Even better if I can stay in Aus.
