So many interesting professions and people. Great idea for a thread!

I started my career as a tool and die maker, worked my way into engineering and then management. I ran several companies that were suppliers to the auto industries, like heavy stampings (mostly underbody parts), interior parts, ash trays, cup holders, glove boxes, etc., and also ran a company that supplied automotive sunroofs. The last job I had before retiring last year was as the president and part owner of a company that supplies chrome tubular products (engine guards, luggage racks, some handle bars) to Harley-Davidson.

Sorry my response was so long winded but when I look back over my career it seems long winded!

I work at a baseball facility giving lessons and coaching a team. I also coach high school baseball. Hopefully in a few weeks I'll also be signing a contract and playing professionally. If any of you have kids who want lessons hit me up!

Seems to me salesmen don't drive trucks. I sell home comfort... I'm also known as the furnace guy, the A/C guy and so on. I've done this work for 14 years now but been in sales my entire career.

I work for an automotive supplier and have been there for just over 15 years. We supply stampings and welded assemblies to Chrysler, GM, Ford, etc. I spent a couple of years as a press operator while I finished my degree and then moved into quality where I've been a QA Liaison for 13 years. It's a great job and one of the benefits is getting into the assembly plants on a daily basis as it never gets old watching them build cars/trucks. If everything goes right, I'll be there when my Ram comes out of the paint booth and makes it's way thru final assembly.
