    I'm new here, but I am a consulting engineer for the construction industry. My firm does everything from new construction inspections to structural load analyses and design work. I love it and being fresh out of college and in the field I want is pretty great!

    Dream Job is a bit of a stretch. Disney is very much like any other large corporation when it comes to their employee's....
    l'll leave it at that.

    Yes it was directed toward you. I took a chance it would go in after your post. & yes I understand. Too bad, I had images of you machining Dragons Monsters and Pirate stuff, with CNC machines and welders that spit out fairy dust.

    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.
