Haha yeah! I've had to learn a lot about networking since that's our biggest market. And you're right, it's good knowledge to have for roles like that. And exactly! I love being able to talk to people who know what they're talking about haha! It's definitely the most fun area to work in.

Irony, after leaving Allied Barton, I went back to those same corporate offices about two years later as a normal Fifth Third employee and saw the same head guard. He had to take my pic, smile, and like it... I came back making more than him with much less bullpoo... until the normal Fifth Third junk kicked in about 2 years later and I left them too LOL. I have such quality choice in employers.

Heck I'm at Time Warner Cable now... just as they're merging... seriously... i'm hoping in another year I don't have a reason to leave here. I like it here biggrin.gif

Nice man. I use to work for Alliedbarton as well at a petrochemical plant in South Texas. I did not enjoy working for that company at all during my time there. I don't blame you for leaving.

Luckily the company I work for pays us really well, stable hours & OT pretty often if wanted.

I also like being Armed security more as well because lets face it, in a real threat with no gun you're screwed and just going to be the first one taken out. Our company only hires police officers/ex police & military vets though, primarily ex combat. So most of us are really well trained with firearms. I'd never work unarmed securiry again after working here.

I don't think I'd go back to security at all after getting my feet wet with the tech industry. I'm happy in tech support and hoping to make something more out of it. Even though we're "tier 3", we get paid meh. I made almost twice as much doing order entry and basic order support for a bioscience company. Basically just processing orders for test kits and supplies. Its sad really frown.gif I also got that same pay at Fifth Third doing property preservation... it just hit me how big a pay cut i took working here frown.gif like $7/hr almost effectively sad-smiley-002.gif

I'm an IT systems analyst and the work is interesting & challenging, and my coworkers are great.

Pay is good but the current challenges to funding any hobbies are that we just put a kid through college and a 2nd just started. On the bright side the older one now works at Intel so she's set and I heard they get an employee discount 😉
