I handle all the process work getting part out the door that includes cnc machining or outside processes.

Picking tooling for the cnc machines, inspection, what cnc machines to use etc. I don't do much programming anymore there the machinist do it and just get me involved if they need assistance.

I still run my little shop after hours though.
What type of work?

The stuff I do couldn't possibly be programmed at the machine by the operator. Some of these parts take 2 men 4 months to program.

All of them can program enough to get us out of trouble. Typically a like a job like that I would just do it.

Tool and Die Work most of the stuff the cycle time is way longer then programming

Food
Aerospace
Heavy Equipment

Pretty much in that order.

What sort of analyst role and how'd the switch into medical devices come about?

I'm a contractual "network engineer" working for a large banking cooperation. What my job consists of is sitting behind three computer monitors while walking on-site technicians through the process of SD WAN implementations, among other things (WiFi AP installations, network device removals/replacements, etc.), while pushing commands to network devices so that **** works.

It's ****ty, but can be fun. More ****ty than fun as of lately. My coworkers are cool, but sitting on a phone with a tech for 6 hours trying to figure out how many ways you can explain something as simple as "unplug the cable from port G0/47, and plug it into port G0/43" is tedious as ****. I spent over an hour the other day trying to explain to a tech how to connect to a WiFi access point. Jesus christ it's ****ing 2020 ffs.

Now they have us working 40+ hours a week, but hey, I'm collecting over time so **** it, if it takes 2 hours for a tech to figure out which goddamn port to plug a cable into, so be it. The best part is when the techs have to do WiFi heat maps, in which case I leave the office, head home, and drink beer until they are done. Then they call and tell me they are done, and I call security and have them re-arm the bank's security systems. I'm getting paid to drink beer and jerk my dingdong to whatever I feel like.

That part is nice. The other nice part is when a tech trips a silent alarm and calls in panicking wondering why the local police are at the entrance to the bank branch ready to shoot a mother****er. I feel bad for those techs, but it's mildly entertaining. Maybe it's the sadist in me, but goddamn, I can't help but giggle a bit. Silently of course, I don't want people to realize how much of a ****bag I am.

I'm a PEC/SEC certification technician in pharmaceutical compounding. I certify, maintain, and repair "clean rooms" and air hoods where medication is compounded. Very niche service. Our company is one of 3 in the Great Lakes area. Currently trying to get my national accreditation to be one of less than 250 people in the US who have it.

What’s the prerequisites for this field? How’d you get into it?

I was lucky enough to have the job offered to me from a family friend. He's a 3rd generation tech/owner. his grandfather started the company. easiest way to transition into this would be HVAC or a background in emission testing.

That's pretty cool. What does the certification you mentioned entail?
