Sadly that stuff is contracted out these days. My title is outside machinist otherwise known as a mechanic in the rest of the world. We take care of the rides on a daily basis. Inside machinists take care of the fab stuff but usually only do small I need it now type items mostly for the older rides though. The newer rides we get parts from the manufacturer.

Good for you man. I'm sick of these cats that think it's ok to not work (not those who don't have a choice) but, those who choose not to work. IMO, they should be embarrased.

And you know, if work didn't suck we wouldn't be paid to do it...

Would you still go to work if they didn't pay you?

I love my job too mostly because it's the easiest exchange for food, clothing and shelter I can find. But, if not for them helping me supply my needs, I would be outta there....

Yes and no... I love my job and it pays me well. But that comes at a heavy price as noted in my PTSD Thread linked in my sig. For 20 years I have been a Paramedic, Haz-Mat Tech (Chemistry, Rail Car Specialist, Etc...), High Angle Rope Rescue Tech, Swift Water Tech, and I'm in the middle of Structural Collapse / Confined Space Refresher Class at the moment. I don't receive any extra pay for any of these specialty positions so the guy that is doing the bare minimum on the job gets the same amount of pay that I do. But that said, I didn't join the Fire Dept. to just sit on my ass and get a free T-Shirt like some others. I joined to help others and that is what I enjoy doing. It is a different job every day that I show up to work and that in itself makes it worth showing up.

Would I do it for free? No. But in a sense I am doing some of it for just that.
