    Im a Sales Rep/Corrosion Specialist for PPG Coatings. I basically look at crusty stuff that needs painting and tell contractors what they should use to paint it and how. Will be going to NACE training soon.

    Big H can you get me a sweet deal on paint if I find the color? Do you do just industrial stuff or do you also deal with automotive paint? Im looking to get enough Deep Crimson Metallic to paint a motorcycle(its a 2008 Buick color)

    I am a Production Planning Supervisor for a printing company. http://www.rrdonnelley.com/wwwrrd1/Home.asp I supervise around 35 employees. Unfortunately, I am the second youngest in my department so it seems that I am a babysitter for grownups. I am also one of the leaders for the Technology Solutions Group which makes the company more efficient (sometimes it is teaching someone how to use a mouse) Lately, we have been dealing with the bad economy and we are combining two plants together. Here is the newsflash: http://www.rrd.com/wwwRRD1/News/2008/2008_12_09.asp?Site=. Most of the time I sit in front of a computer and solve people's issues. On the offtime, I spend a lot of time fishing (either summer or ice fishing), training my English Setters and hunting them and also starting to take over for my brother in law's maintenance business. The site is just started and is a little rough. http://reefdesigns.com/index.html Hopefully soon, it will have a lot of new items. We actually do quite a bit of tank builds into walls and also some custom builds. Right now I am on a crash course of learning salties and appreciate the info from this site.

    I'm a television comercial channel surfer. I know the name sounds like a complicated job but with the right attitude it's do-a-bull......haha

    got laid off 2 weeks ago, I installed fire sprinklers.

    so if anyone lives anywhere in NH and needs a helper or any small engine repairs or welding done shoot me a pm.

    what Kind of experiance do you have and its really tough to get on right now. but as soon as it picks up even with no experiance you could get hired on at my company. we are willing to train. I have to travel from colorado to north dakota to work right now. no travel money but they do pay me 30 bucks a day for food.

    FIT RIGHT IN! You might not think New York is redneckville but hit the mountains of the southern tier and you might as well be in Georgia or West Virginia.
