  • I'm an Operations Analyst for heavy equipment manufacturing.  I basically find ways to monitor and measure production equipment performance and develop key performance indicators to track progress/improvements.  So I pretty much stare at charts and graphs all day.

  • I'm a SAHM with my 5 and 2 year old. I just recently left my part time retail job a few months ago.
    My husband and I used to work opposite schedules since our 5yo was born to avoid the financial burden of daycare. But my husband had an amazing opportunity with a new company that made it not possible to work back to back like we had been.
    I sometimes miss working, but overall I like the new change, I get to see my husband so much more now. We used to only see each other 15mins a day 4 days a week, 2 half days, and one whole day off together.

  • I work in sales and customer service at an oil and chemical storage facility. Primarily I lease out giant tanks for liquid storage and coordinate logistics of import/export. It's a fulfilling career but I do wish I could be home more with DS and future LO.

  • @allowachick Good luck! I'm about to go back to school for a Masters in Health Administration later this month. It's all online, so I'll still be working full time also.

  • @orangecup what's your best drink??
    Hmmm, there are a few things that customers will only order when I'm working. Baltimore Zoo, Side Car, Cosmo. My personal favorite drinks are wine and bourbons, depending on the occasion.

    So, randomly, my husband LOVES bourbon, I'm a vodka or wine person myself, and he teases me because he claims to know I'm pregnant before I do. The test? Whether or not I come sniffing his Manhattan and tell him how delicious it smells. Apparently, without fail, I find the smell of bourbon entirely intoxicating (no pun intended) while pregnant and only somewhat interesting when not pregnant.

    7th grade math teacher. I go back to work next week. Before that I worked in the science field working with different instruments for analytical analysis .
    What company/instruments did you work with? Wondering if they might be some I've used in our lab.

  • @Maureenmce, I do love my job and its pretty awesome that I get to spend my day working on subjects that are innately interesting to me! However, dude, your job sounds super interesting too! Can you share which shows you've worked on? Or your faves??? I have a friend that works in Washington (state) as a casting director. I totally fan-girled when I saw her name on the credits of this random psyfi show Grimm.

  • I'm a Statistical Clerk for a maintenance facility that does overhaul and wreck repair work on train cars and Locomotives.  I mainly track the cost (hours and materials) into fixing the overhauled units. It's pretty much a lot of excel spreadsheets and formulas.

  • I'm a mortgage loan processor. It's stressful, but never boring. I spend a lot of my day problem solving. And I absolutely love the girls I work with, they are like my best friends! I anticipate working up until my DD and taking at least 6 weeks of leave once baby is here. 

    Prior to the mortgage industry, I was a gymnastics coach for 5 years.

    Married 5/3/14, TTC ever since

  • I'm mostly a SAHM. I'm a nurse but I'm back in school. My end goal is CRNA. I also coach and judge all star cheer. Judging is all over the country, but since that generally involves flying nearly every single weekend during competition season (December - April is the peak), I will likely be only judging relatively locally this season between being pregnant and in school.

    Me (33). DH (37). DD (2.2012). MCs x4. After 4 years & 7 months, due 4.2018!

    @jilliant26 the one i worked on the most was an IRMS isotope ratio mass spectrometer. It focused on carbon and nitrogen isotopes. We had other MS but that was the main one I worked on. I really liked that job. Then I worked for a company that manufactured instruments that mostly measured salt in water. I tested them to make sure they worked before the were shipped out. I hated that job and that's when I decided to go back to school to be a teacher. 

    Edit to add the company names 1st was stable isotope facility and 2nd insitu. I have thought about medical labs but I don't think I am qualified.
  • +1 to the teacher crew over here... I teach Middle and High School Culinary Arts! We start back on Monday, and kids start on Wednesday.
