For those of us who haven't always been in banking what were some of the jobs you used to have?

I was a bus boy, park maintenance, tow truck driver, pizza delivery, limo driver.

I used to manage Kay's and Shaw's jeweler's. Much more money than this banking stuff, but the hours were nuts. I had to choose my family over money.

In college I had a job with a local business machine store. I would drive to businesses to perform preventive maintenance on electric typewriters. This was in the days before PCs. (Yes I'm showing my age.) Most of the machines were IBM Selectrics (remember those), but I saw other older IBM typewriters too.

I also had a job as an optician. Pretty boring, I must say.

In my banking career I've been: drive-up teller, lobby teller, loan clerk, consumer loan officer, and then into compliance management.
