Question What do you do for a living?

From time to time we post this same question... mosty because everyone responds. So now I am asking it with a twist....

1. What do you do?
2. How long have you done it?
3. Do you enjoy your job?

I work for a window manufacturing company. I am basically the IT person, talk about power! I do all the graphic design, report running, pc upgrades, repair.... you name it, I do it.

Been here since Jan 23, 2006.

And yes, I enjoy it very much!

I am a receptionist for a design firm, very boring, very easy, just forward calls and get coffee, and chat when someone is on here! been doing it for a few months. Do I enjoy it? hmm its not satisifying, but I get to see how people in this industry work, I am in school for graphic design.

Marketing Specialist. I deal with tradeshows, graphic design, website building, and the little bits of paperwork here and there.
Been doing it for a year.
I love my workplace. Its like I'm living the movie "Office Space" everyday, and it cracks me up.

I just saw Grandma's Boy and its Office Space with Half-Baked. Its freaking fun as hell. Its the new movie at work. Its funny to be in a meeting and our Boss cracks up naughty jokes from those movies.

Primarily I run a PC repair buisness to get the bills payed. I don't enjoy it becuase it ficing the same problems every day, day in and day out... spyware. I've been doing this for almost three years now but buisness isn't stable and comes only in spirts recently. I also do part time work for my neighbor selling medical equipment, like the machines that you sit infront of at the eye doctor with all the lenses and the ones that puff air into you eye. Stuff like that. We sell and repair them, he makes a mint ($350k a year easy) doing it and has expressed interest in me going full time with him and eventually taking over, dunno if its what I want to do though. I do enjoy the work though, I've been working with him for about 8 months. I am also a full time college student, and no I don't enjoy it. I hate school... all work and no pay.
