I worked at a heavy plant company and got to drive a mini digger, and best of all, a massive crane. It was scary climbing up there as it must have been over 100m tall and they told me if I thought I was going to fall, clip myself on with the safety harness. So if I slipped, I would have fallen down. It was quite an experience! The rest of the time I think I was filing papers and drawing site maps on the computer.

Sounds good, War Chief. Mine wasn't so exciting! I was a 'skivvy' at this designer spectacle manufacturers for two weeks. I had to polish the frames (coz nobody liked doing it), sweep up for what seemed like forever and make the tea (of course!). I got offered a job at the end of it though, and made money in the school holidays...

Nowadays I work in CAD, producing floor plans for mainly fire evac's and have been for about 8 years now. It's all very exciting stuff... ahem.  :doubt:

It seems work experience for school kids has done nothing to inspire them! They should do work experience in chocolate factories, music shops (like Bobo), theme parks ....

haha. I guess it is a reality check ... work is generally boring.
