What do you do for a living

Post by johnc1 » Wed Mar 09, 2016 6:55 pm

Just out of interest what do you do for a job ?Myself i have been working in garages for 25yrs but because of the way vehicles are going it might be time for a change for me. Without a decent computer long gone are the days when you can fix a car at the side of the road :(

Most of my life i have had diesel cars but this time i have gone for petrol. The tech that's now going into diesel cars has made them not worth bothering with any more and a well built petrol engine will last as long as any diesel engine out there without the huge bills that come with a modern diesel engine. The last place i worked at all i did all day long was big engine jobs and gearbox faults but after doing it for many years my body is now starting to pay the price. I am starting to think about going for a driving job next so that i am not working in the cold 10hrs a day or getting covered in oil.

Well thought I'd jump on the bandwagonWork in construction as Extra High Voltage Substation Commissioning Trainee. This has to be the shortest way to describe my job. Although ever since I was a kid I've wanted to be a mechanic, electromagnetic force dragged me into substations.
