    Well, officially I retired from AT&T as a Field Engineer, but that was a down graded job that I hired into at age 56. Prior to that I worked as a Manufacturing Manager for companies including Xerox, Northern Telecom,, BASF, DataPoint, Takata, and Allegany International. Lots of manufacturing jobs that moved off-shore. :(
