Full time engineering student right now. I was an Assembly Tech with my company, and then became a Mechanical Tech running CNC machines, laser cuts, and water jets. Then I got laid off, with a questionable return. At the moment I pursuing spfx, and started making silicone masks under the name of Skinwalker FX. I am starting to find out why so many people just buy masks instead of making them. Alot of time, blood, and tears go into these things. However its my passion, and now I am looking at changing my schooling up after I get my associates in Mech. Eng. and going after spfx. With both degrees I hope I can get a job in a studio, or best case scenario start my own studio.

It's funny because I joined Weichert a few months ago and the fact that I had another part time job wasn't popular. But i was like unless you have people beating the doors down...I need some steady income!!! What company do you work for

I'm an Engineer for Department of Defense, working and living in Germany but supporting all Europe. I have the largest yard haunt in the area. Halloween is really growing... So it's fun sharing with my German friends. The kids have been involved with creating the Screaming Siegelbach 2011 since April.

Wow - quite the variety of occupations on here! =)

I'm a graphic designer for a manufacturing company. I think I may try to revive Halloween a bit this year and suggest a costume contest or something for some employee participation!! =)

Right out of high school and straight into college - Pathology - all things dead and dismembered; the study of disease; tissue lab; morgue. This will always be my love. I got married and my husband at the time was constantly being transferred. While waiting for Pathology openings at hospitals, I worked in the mortgage industry climbing my way quickly through closing/processing/underwriting and eventually managing the underwriting department.


Once we settled back in Houston, I gained employment at a hospital there and went back to working in pathology. It was at that time that I also opened "Edible Treasures" and satisfied my need for all things confectionery. I had to be at the hospital at 6AM and left at 2PM. That left my afternoons open for baking and candy making. So, so many of my fellow physicians, nurses, techs, etc., were my clientele. In all honesty, I was burning my candle at both ends. Something I don't think I could or would care to do at my age now.

After years working for the hospital, it was purchased by another entity and the new owners wanted me to perform procedures outside of my field of specialty and things my license didn't cover. After all of the years of education and hard work, I refused to take that risk and resigned. My entire reasoning for choosing pathology versus any other field of medicine is because I do not like to cause pain to an individual. I can't draw blood peacefully, I can't perform a biopsy without sweaty palms, but I can dissect an amputated limb, and I can autopsy your body. I'm not hurting anyone. I'm proud of my decision to resign. I wasn't willing to be bullied by people who don't provide hands on medical care and sit in an office looking at the bottom line. The only bottom line they should have been looking at with me is: If it walks and talks, I'm not working on it!

This might not be surprising...I'm a retired police officer. But 20 years was enough and now I'm able to work from home as a writer with a major, online investment website. Those two statements might not be as mutually exclusive as they first appear. Heh.

[/Bootoyou... I thank you for many safe landings at PDX! :) You do good work! I've actually admired that job from a distance on many occasions. I'm sure it has its stress, but I could also imagine it being quite relaxing out there mowing away!QUOTE]

N4niner, you got that right, I love mowing, it's so chilled out. One of our operations peeps is a pilot, he took me up last year and I made him land at pdx so I could see what you guys see, what a blast. I envy your job!
