  • ^ Very cool. We have several guys here who came over w/ military time. I love the work man. It's almost addictive.
  • First post.
    I'm a Program Manager in the Supply Chain division of a major Aerospace company here in Arizona. I help Business Units get and then spend their money.
    I work from home mostly, so I get to play with my 2 boys and our (mostly mine) Lego sets.
    I've got a great wife who doesn't complain about the money I spend on the hobby. She's just glad I have a safe and (relatively) inexpensive hobby!
  • I am an Import Customs Broker for DHL myself. Anyone need any help with shipping lots of toys, let me know lol.

    Always remember: Use HTS code: 9503.00.0085 for Legos :-)

  • An Estimator for a Engineering company in the Oil and Gas industry.

    Hey, I'm an MWD Engineer, too! Yep, your description of the job fits mine as well. Don't have much time to enjoy my Lego collection, but it is still growing and with the schedule I now have, I usually get about 2 weeks a month to enjoy them at home.

    That's great! Our field is a small one so it's interesting to see someone that's also a Lego fan!

    It's always funny in the oil field to tell someone you collect Lego. But, the oil field is a great way to fund a Lego addiction.
  • The thread on reselling has made me curious about more of the board members' day jobs and side jobs!

    So bumping this with a post of my own...

    I also work in IT, and have since I was a teenager. I've taken the occasional gig as a violinist, though, especially when I was younger.
  • I currently own 2 businesses. A hair salon/barbershop and I run my own personal fitness training business.

    Before that I was a mechanical engineer/computer aided designer. I designed safety systems for automobiles. Detroit

    Worked in aerospace industry as mechanical engineer for Pratt and Whitney designing fighter aircraft engines. Cincinnati

    Mechanical Engineer designing steam turbines at General Electric. New York

    Structural Engineer for Pulp ans Paper industry. Designed paper mills. New York



  • I am an undergrad student currently. After high school I tried uni for a bit and it just didn't work out, so I worked for a long time - until the company I worked for laid me off, essentially. So I packed up and moved to the UK to complete a degree in international business.

    One thing that I miss about working is the ability to buy things for myself once in awhile and not worry about it so much! LOL.
  • High School student working as a waiter.
  • I work in the bookstore of Austria's largest law publisher. Responsible for anything except law books, i.e. Vienna guides, Fiction, Languages. the store is located in Viennas historic City center, in fact in one of Europe's most expensive shopping streets, hence the Vienna guides in the Law bookstore...

    So if you re about to visit vienna, especially from the US, let me know. You bring me cheap Lego from the US and I ll be your free tour guide... :-)

    Currently i am on paternity leave, two more weeks.
  • I work on type design for non-roman scripts (and end up doing all sorts of other computery things too) for a non-profit in Cameroon. Next to zero Lego in this country so I find myself spending more and more time on Brickset reading about what the rest of you are building
  • I'm currently a domestic engineer, child care specialist, and child passenger safety instructor. The salary is meager but the benefits are fantastic now that the kids are in school.
    MorkMan
  • ^ you left out chef, medic and peace keeper!
  • I was a IT Projects Manager for a bank in the U.S. I had a accident which put me out of work for the last 13yrs. I got back into lego after i had been off work for 3yrs or so. I was sinking into depression, i had to find something to do with my time. I ramdomley picked up the batcave(the old set) and never looked back. My misses has had to put up with hell from me. But she's now starting to build. LOTR sets make her... ... fun. hehe Katie's a Film Editor.
  • Still a PhD student and hope to find a good job after graduation :)

  • Generally speaking, I'm a Civil Servant. More specifically, I'm a Clerk of the Court in the Social Security and Child Support Tribunal. I get to talk to nervous people, aggressive people, and people with all kinds of problems and calm them down all day.
  • @thornie NY or LA? Wondering if we've worked together --I'm currently an AE
  • I am a music teacher/band director. That pays the bills. I also conduct a community orchestra and play timpani professionally in another. I suppose the best title for me is "Teacher/Musician"
  • Previous work experience.....far too long to list:)
    In short:
    Former nomad, aspiring mycologist.
  • Mechanical Engineer by degree, I've worked in the Medical Device industry for 15+ years. I used to work on automated assembly equipment for plastic components, now I work with Risk Management for medical devices (mostly consumables/disposables).

    I've got to give LEGO some credit for my choice of profession; I have to believe that putting together and taking apart sets and MOCs as a kid helped inspire the engineering creativeness later on.
  • @thornie NY or LA? Wondering if we've worked together --I'm currently an AE

    New York. I never see our AE's most of them work over night.

    Tax accountant at a Big 4 firm...isn't it great that something as simple as a plastic brick can bring all types of people together from around the world..so happy to have come out my dark age and rediscover lego and its great community :)
  • Transport supervisor for a same-day courier company -I'm the one who gets jobs off the customers and organises the drivers to collect and deliver the freight. Interesting job - no 2 days are ever the same. It's amazing though reading through this thread and seeing all the different jobs that people do.
  • Not a job as such, but I'm a full time carer for my fiancées 17yr old autistic son. He's very high functioning on the autistic spectrum ( ADHD and Aspergers syndrome ) and is going to college, which means I get to build Lego whilst he's at college.
  • Been following this thread on and off for ages and just realised I hadn't posted on it! Anyway, I am a childrens mental health nurse. Most of the children I look after think they are too old for lego though, much as I might try and convince them that there is no such thing as "too old"!
  • I do online security testing (hacking into some of the world's largest banks, financial institutions, etc). This is what gets me my Lego spending money.

    I also do volunteer work for St John Ambulance, providing advanced first aid at various events. If all goes to plan, I should become an ETA (emergency transport attendant) soon.
  • @paul_merton no wonder @bmwlego likes you, all my paramedicine is rubbing off ;-)
  • I am in the banking industry
