    What does everybody out there do for a living? Kinda interested to see the types of professions we have throughout this forum.

    I work for Dr. Pepper/Snapple group as a warehouse foreman. We distribute soft drinks and juices such as 7up, Dr. pepper, A&W, RC, Snapple, Arizona Teas.....lots of crazy drinks. I get to drive all the big rigs and load them up for the next days routes. Also have to run a crew of about 8 guys, thats if everybody shows up...

    I was a tank mechanic in the army, and now i work in Security Operations for MN Power, the northern Power utility in MN. Its not the type of secuity job that you are thinking about. Basically i am a complete white colar worker, I work in an office, and monitor all on MN powers facilities... As well as the building that i work in, And handle the federal regulations that are impossed by the government since Sept 11... I work by myself in a swing shift set up. Its quite nice to not have other people around at night.

    That sounds like a pretty nice gig actually.

    I'm currently a student with a semester left until graduation. I've had part-time jobs here and there. Department of State Narcotics Affairs Section, USAID, Computer Support Technician, etc. Wanting to do work in federal law enforcement, international security, or anything similar.
