That mean you can get a "supplier discount" or whatever they call it?
I use to be able to get a discount on Cooper Tires, but they have since sold CooperStandard to a investment company and still use the Cooper name.... :(
Sorry Jack..
Edit: I do get a discount on any new GM vehicle also...

Well, that makes two copier techs on the forum...

I do IT work for a company that sells Kyocera and Konica-Minolta copiers. And my Bonneville is also my daily driver (beats the little shoebox Nissan the company issued me for a rolling office.) Been at it for two years and 6 days. Job has a lot of driving (like 200miles per day average) but minimal supervision...haven't talked to my "boss" in Tampa for about a month.

Before that, I wrote software for a living (mostly accounting software) and did contract programming work for about 20 years.

Two active, two retired. Out of tech school I worked at a local office supply store and worked on Mita copiers, typewriters, calculators, Dictaphone recording equipment. Now I work for IBM.

I work for Truck Lite. We make lights for trucks of all kinds. I work in the LED dept. I assemble the round LED lights for semi trucks and trailers. (Freightliner, Sterling, Great Dane to name a few) We also make them for UPS, the military, Fed Ex, GM, Volvo and the list goes on!! It not the best paying job, but it pays the bills and I'm thankful I have a job.
I am growing tired of factory work and am trying to decide what I want to do with the 2nd half of my career. Am thinking of getting my CDL B license and delivering motor homes and school busses across the country. Seems like the RV market is growing and I love traveling so its something for me to think about.

I'm a MASSIVE fan of the Minolta Maxxum camera line.
Too bad that KM as a company isn't around anymore :(

I work part-time at a (dun dun dun) Canadian Tire autoparts department in Downtown Toronto. Aside from that, I'm a full-time student at Sheridan College taking a 3-year diploma program in Mechanical Engineering.

Good grief, 4 copier techs, both present and retired! Guess great minds think alike. I work on everything monocolor with an X on the door, from the 8ppm fax machine all the way to 90ppm digitals. Really want to go color, but as I get older, I cannot see my knees holding up for 20 more years. Spend lots of time on them, changing developer, rebuilding fusers. Its all modular anymore, my laptop has replaced my Fluke as the most used diagnostic tool. Didnt even carry a laptop till about 4 years ago, it sat on the desk all the time!

To the person who hasnt "seen" the boss for over a month, that can be good and bad. Sometimes, we actually need him around and its like pulling teeth to get into his schedule.
