    What does everyone here do?
    Good luck in whatever you decide to do.

    I've put in 25+ years at grocery stores (Safeway for 10 years, Kroger for 15 years) for the $5/week full coverage medical/dental/vision plan, plus a union pension. My other job for the past 15 years is as a valet at one of Denver's top Italian restaurants. I drive lots of Porsche's, BMW's, Mercedes Benz, and the occasional super premium cars like Ferrari, Aston Martin, and Bentley. Not only is it great money (and cash every night), all the running helps keeps me in shape!

    It's crazy hearing you guys talk about 20+ years at a job and retiring. Most of you I thought were younger than that (I guess I just assumed everyone was mid 30s like me, lol).

    I've been employed by Musco Sports Lighting for the past 9 1/2 years. Initially as in telecommunications as I managed all the employee cell phones. I then went to the Replacement parts department for our lighting systems.

    3 1/2 years ago, I came to work at Mahaska Communication Group, a subsidiary of Musco Sports Lighting. We provide businesses and residents with internet/telephone/television in Oskaloosa. (Think Comcast/Mediacom/Cox Cable, but with way better customer service). We provide our services over a fiber-optic network.

    I worked as an Operations Geologist for an Independent Oil and Gas co for almost 8 years. When the bust hit in 2015 I didn't survive the cuts. I've been working as a Wellsite Geologist for the last year and a half. I spend most of my time out in the field chasing rigs in West Texas-SE NM.
