      I've been a Database Admin, System Admin, Systems Programmer, Programmer Analyst, etc.

      My employers all provided insurance, but sometimes when you're a new employee they don't cover pre-existing conditions for some period of time, typically 6 months to a year. The insurance covers most things I need.

      What do you like to do?

          Our insurance at work isn't very good for the small stuff. Way too much hassle to get re-imbursed . I just pay out of pocket most of the time.

            Was a welder for a stainless steel machining company. Loved my job. Great wage, benefit package, worked at my own pace. Fell 15 feet backwards in a steel tank. Don't remember how it even happened. Now I'm living on workmans comp and ssi. $4,500 a month with full medical for now, until my settlement, it's livable, but I'm still undecided what I want to do. No matter what, I know i'll have to settle for a sit down job now.

              I am a computer programmer and my insurance pays for most stuff that I need, including 100% of a new chair once every 36 months.

                      My husband (L1) just went back to work as a police dispatcher. He is on the same insurance as when he got injured so we don't have to worry about pre-existing conditions. They cover pretty much everything.

                      I used to work with a SCI guy (have no idea what his injury level was, knew nothing about SCI at the time) who started in health insurance customer service and worked his way up to a sales rep. He, of course, had awesome insurance working for the company.

                        Police & Fire Dispatcher. Customer Service at my local natural gas company but then the police job came along a month later. Switchboard Operator at my local hospital. Data entry clerk. Even worked at a pizza joint answering the phone, working on their computer billing - even scrubbed the toilet a few times - blech!

                        I've never been fired and always left on good terms.

                            I've been running my own business doing doing web sites for over 7 years now. It doesn't provide enough for my own insurance yet, so funding comes from my father's employer.
