Reprographics in print for 30 years, mainly packaging. The trade has changed so much since I began with a scalpel, paintbrush and flat artwork, with the odd bit of hot metal typesetting. It's the digital age and now you end up being more a troubleshooter/advisor to customers who have never experienced the roots/origins of packaging requirements.

After a 10 year break, I rejoined the Navy as a Reservist specialising in information and media operations. It's only 18 days service per year, usually a bit of a laugh, though there's always a risk of mobilisation!

It's a very good plan. Those of us that don't like peanuts struggle to find a decent but butter. They either have almond butter which has some peanut in it or they can be very oily! I mean why would you make an alternative to peanut butter and add peanuts to it! You target market should be peanut haters or those that are allergic if the factory can keep peanuts separated.
If you need a taster/brainstorming session let me know and I'll come and tell you exactly what the non peanut eaters crave from a nut butter! Good excuse for a smoke you I'd guess.

I did a night shift stint over with Waitrose when I was studying. Busy evenings bringing up stock, replenishing stock, facing up etc. I'd end up going home and all contents in my cupboards would be face front, neatly stored :lol: Eventually moved down to the warehouse. But I am v grateful for my stint there, as it's where I met my Wife, and we're now blessed with a beautiful little boy :smile: I used to work the household isle, and she was on the biscuit isle :D

Not a nice job , in these times the well off who won't pay their finance I've got no sympathy for , but evicting struggling people from their homes can't be any fun at all

I was in one of the high street loan and pawn broker places last year getting cash for an item of jewellery you would buy specifically for a special woman (or another man in these modern times) and got a 4 figure sum for it. Whilst haggling and them counting out the money the guy at the next window was having a loan refused. Got told that because he had stated on the form he needed the loan to pay of the previous loan they couldn't give it to him. He was begging to let him off this once and complaining there wasn't a box to tick that said his electricity and run out and he didn't have money for food. Felt physically sick.

Well, I'm now pretty much unemployed. :(

Still waiting for a start date and contract from my probable new employer, but had enough of call centre work after eight years and gave my notice this Wednesday. Luckily I haven't taken enough holiday over the last year so effectively get paid until the end of the month with holiday and leu time I've built up, and only had to work three shifts of my notice, but won't be buying any cigars for a while!!

Recently moved from SE Bucks to Northern Ireland and with that went from procurement to supermarket. Really don't like my job but it's a tough market here especially if you don't have a trade, which I don't. So applying for anything and everything. If I get a promotion anytime soon the money will pick up. But would rather move on. Nearly 30 and no career pinned down so between now and 30th is crunch time.
