My DH is an engineering consoltant. He goes onto mining refineries and does testing on the equipment ant tells you when something is going to break or needs replacing, like preasure vessles, pipes, turbines ect. He is also studying to be a vessel inspector, he also does industrial radiography (xrays metal ect). He likes it and it is a pretty technical job and every day is different, he likes using his brain and he has plenty of room to go up in his company which suits him. He works 40 hours a week, no weekends unless something drastic happens, (they cant affort to call him out) weekend work is $260 an hour min, 4 hours.... hehehe, neadless to say he doesn't get very much weekend work.
When I am not preggas I am a industrial spraypainter and sandblaster, I work on the docks and referbish ships and boats when they come out of the water for repairs ect, I like it, but it is hard phisical work (gives you good muscles and abbs) and the chemicals in the paints aren't good for you.
