Where do we all work

Postby JustinCouch » Tue Feb 13, 2018 12:56 pm

Before I post any pictures I want to ask if this is ok. Is it ok if we post a picture of where we work and give a brief description of what we do? If its not cool please delete this thread.

Well, this was my job for 12 years until Warren Buffet bought us out, restructured the company, closed our distribution center and laid off 87 people in one day. My wife had worked there for 26 years, so three days before Christmas we went for expecting to retire there to both of us without a job.
Now I own and operate my own Transportation brokerage specializing in heavy haul and over dimensional loads.

I work in the kitchen! :laughing7:

But in the past I've held down a number of temp jobs, including a one-day stint in a golf club factory. This may explain my current obssession with the sport.

I’m an inventory control supervisor for an online retailer. We always used this guy to explain Daddy’s job to our kids.

Most of my career has been Inventory Control in two places. I’ve also worked (going way back) cleaning a church daycare, at a hockey / figure skating shop, owned and operated a retail place where we did photo mugs and shirts as well as working at a screen printer for a stint. Even served a week long sentence working at Taco Bell when I was in high school.

I work for a small, private contract services company and we contract to Nabisco Foods and manage many of their raw materials used to make the cookies and crackers you see everyday on store shelves. I personally manage chocolates, cocoas, specialty grains and a multitude of ingredients by working with Nabisco HQ procurement to make sure we have enough material bought from the various vendors and also work with logistics to get those materials into our bakeries across the US/Canada/Mexico. Been at it nearly 22 years now...

Tex_Toby - if you find whoever is responsible for the Peanut Butter Oreos I’m not sure if I want you to hug them or slug them…I’m addicted to those things.

Been selling most of my life, steel to start with then engineering supplies. Started working for myself in 91, pretty much cruise mode now, with just enough to keep me going.made a lot of money and friends with the gold mining business on the west coast of the South Island. Selling stacker belts and supplies. Life's pretty cruisey and I like it like that.
Btw gold rush is so exaggerated.

Russ, if your talking about the pier, it's something I did one weekend about a year or so ago.
