Was a Project Manager contracted in a major refinery.  It was not my cup of tea.  Going back to being a lead mechanical engineer in Jan/Feb back at our home office, as i close out some projects.  I spent more time engineering than managing any way.

I watch the PMs at my work and have come to the same conclusion. Ours don't really even do any engineering though, just a lot of office politics.

Oh man, don't I know. I work at a large refinery and just came off a project (opps rep). The BS seemed like a cross between rival politics and teen girl drama.

Doing the engineering out of neccesity.  The guy that work through the early stages quit.  I was the only one that knew what needed to be done.  The rest of it, getting you're dick drug in the mud because somebody else missed a deadline or something didn't work out as well as planned (we are working around stuff that was originally built in the '40's, shit happens) and being a contractor so I have limited power to make anyone in this place that is an actual employee do anything,  I can certainly do without.

Been doing telecom & IT related stuff for quite a while now, wish I was still doing what I was learning when I was a teenager (machining, welding, CNC, engineering), but currently have the most important job I'll ever have, taking care of my little girl.

Interesting mix of experience and occupations. Wonder, Ponder

For the last 23 years I've driven a semi for various companys. For the last 9 years for Overnite/UPS Freight.

This is my 4th occupation. I went from corporate officer when very young to truck driver! WTF

I enjoy my job as it is quite a challenge and delivering to many that own small business has been an education in how things work. Get to meet new people every day and from every corner of this earth.

Mechanical Engineer by training, now a Project Manager in bulk material handling (coal/ore/grain for import/export/processing) during the day.  Opened a brewery this year that is my night/weekend job, which makes having two jobs tolerable since drinking is a requirement at one.

I didn't have it yet!  The locals wouldn't approve a zoning variance unless I agreed to no on-site sales (which was fine as it was nothing more than a temporary solution anyway).  The permanent home is in a much friendlier municipality 3 miles down the road without all of the regulatory bullshit.  As soon as it's built-out, I'll throw a party!
