I get a good deal of time off b/c (Tues off, half days Thu and Fri, and weekends off), but I'm married, with two young daughters...
So, even getting out to play a single round can be contentious with the wifey.
If I had it my way, I'd be out there whenever I'm not at the office. If my wife had it her way, she'd throw out my clubs;)
So, I'm satisfied with my once a week round. I'll usually get out at least once a week and hit at least a warmup bucket.
I am 24, I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a degree in Business Management with minor in Chemical Engineering and Economics. I own 49% of a large pawn shop. I worked for our other shop during my first 2 years of college and then when we opened a new store I moved to it to manage it. After a year I was given 25% of the business and then have had to purchase my other percentages. I enjoy the work and it is very financially rewarding. I don't get as much time off to hit the golf course as I want since I generally work 6 days a week, but I usually play every Sunday.
I'm new to this forum. I'm from Massachusetts and work as an operator for a manufacturing facility in Plymouth. We use a process known as "Photo-Etching" to make precision metal parts, RFI and EMI shields, as well as flex circuits. Our customers include the United States Department of Defense, aerospace and medical industries, energy and power sectors and many more fields that require ISO controlled documentation and product. We also Electroplate and Electropolish, Laser-cut, and provide coating/painting properties for our customers.
With that said this is the most intriguing job I've ever had, loads of opportunity and always something to learn. Although being an operator for 7 years wasn't part of the plan, it's a very rewarding job knowing every order I produce is moving other industries forward and improving the world we live in.
I hope to get to know you all well and maybe play a round or 2 with some of you. Anyone from the South Shore in MA should get in touch with me, I'm available in the afternoons during the week and any weekend.
P.S. In closing; Treat your operators as if they might be your boss someday, because this kid is climbing the ladder .
I work for drinks giant Diageo, based in a small lab in Central Scotland, with views of the monument to William Wallace and Stirling Castle, and only 30mins drive from Gleneagles, my work is testing of the packaging for all the famous brands Diageo own, I play golf at least twice a week (Weather depending), and have also written a book on being a member at Gleneagles.
