I have done nothing 90% percent of the time as well in past jobs. I hated it. How do you feel about that?

Depends on how you look at it. It boring, my work days seem like they are never gonna end. I have to find things to do that have nothing to do with the license I hold. But on the up side its not tiring and for the first time in my life I don't dread going to work. I will say that when I do have to do something that it usually involves serious mechanical troubleshooting, math like Pump curves and hydraulic and organic loading rates based on given plant flow and heavy manual labor. My schedule is 8 on, 2 off, 2 on, 2off so that's a lil hectic but it works out. The plant I work at is rated for 60mgd and its on 11 acres. Sewage gases are dangerous and there are a lot of confined spaces with engulfment hazards. This week has been the coldest all year and most everything is outside or requires a walk to get to.
All in all its the best job I've ever had. I work with some of the best most knowledgeable people I've ever worked with. And I get paid pretty handsomely for someone without a college degree so I'm not complaining.
I recently scored extremely well on a mechanics civil service test for the plant I work at and that requires a lot more manual labor, less lab and math. so things should become busier within the year I'm hoping. And its Monday thru Friday rotating weekends.

What is your job?

My job is snowboarding. When I'm not working I spend time in the military.

I'm working towards my doctorate of veterinary medicine, while being a part time snowboard instructor. 99% of my money comes from loans or savings. On a cool note, I can do volunteer veterinary work almost wherever I want, so this summer I'll be in the Galapagos Islands neutering every cat and dog I can get my hands on.

So I guess my summer job title could be... an emasculator.

Thank God.

The southern US states could really use your services - it's a mess from what I hear. Many of the shelter animals are shipped up here from there.

Although the Galapagos seems to be a better locale than the south for a summer gig!

I might have asked you this when you first joined but I forget - are you focusing on small or large animal at Penn?
