I'm a mechanic so most of my time is spent cursing at engineers under my breath for hiding that last bell housing bolt behind something.

I'm in maintenance. Worked closely with some great engineers over the years. Airplanes. Then graduated to management. That was good and bad.

I was asked recently to take on a job as a technical rep for FA-18 aircraft. The job will probably pay the same as my current one, maybe even less. I'm brain dead at my current job, even if it is considered technical. I'll probably take the new job offer. My mind needs to start working again.

Automated material handling systems maintenance manager, or field re-engineering specialist.

I've had the generic title of field engineer before, but an accredited engineer I am not.
