I have a part- time job at 01-1509 RadioShack in Hooksett N.H. It keeps me busy, and my mind on technology.

Back in the day when I was still in high school I worked for our major sponsor, United Technologies Electronic Controls, so it worked out pretty good.

I didn't have a job during last year's build, but this year I'm working at Copps (a grocery store) - my mind will be going between "Would you like paper or plastic, sir/ma'am?" and "WHERE'S THE (insert name of tool here)!?!?!" ;)

I have a part time job. I work at the Sachem Public Library and I'm a computer assistant. Pretty much, that means I get to sit in front of a computer, in a big computer room. I assign the patrons to a computer after they show me their library card, and I answer their questions (even the really stupid ones that make you shake your head and ask how they hell they're in college). Other than that, I sit and chat, play games, check email, and do my homework. I like my job for the most part. :) I've worked at the library for over 4 years. And Michael has worked there, doing the same job, for over a year now as well.

I work(ed) for International Fireworks Ltd. We deal with all the ileegal stuff that you can't buy without a permit. We put together shows and ship them out all over IN. We ignited some nitro-glycerin this summer to see how big of a fireball it would produce. It was massive. But seeing as how no one really needs fireworks in the winter, I'm trying to get another job, but I don't know how long it will last because of robotics and softball at the same time.

Yeah right! You should see some of the stuff that comes with the boxes of fireworks from Japan and China. Roaches that are and inch long, dead mice... its nasty. Plus its outside in the sun for 7 hours a day, 6 days a week. It's hard work, but its worth it because its really casual. Its just kinda gross because of the stuff you find.
