    I work at a skateboard shop called Humidity in New Orleans. I really love workwear and Red Kap is my favorite. Lots of other brands I feel try to imitate the classic cut that Red Kap has and fail. At the shop we fix boards for free for kids who have no money. Its the most time consuming part of our job but we all love doing it. We like to keep all the broke kids out there skating and not doing something else cause they cant afford to get their boards working. Its a job thats only rewarding if you love what you're doing and your community.

    I do purchasing for a defense contractor. I spend all day making sure that no government money is spent I appropriately, and that we never overpay for anything. My efforts often go unnoticed, and I take a lot of heat for holding things up to make sure all the rules are followed. What I love about it is the inner satisfaction I get at the end of the day from knowing no taxpayer money was wasted on my watch.

    My profession is lighting, but recently I've been recovering from surgery to have some small cancer pollops removed. The best part is I get to baby sit my nieces and one day I hope I can change my profession to Dad :)

    I currently have 4 jobs. Full time I'ma an Electronics Engineering Designer. I only wish the pay was as glamorous as the title sounds. Part time I work at a small in home embroidery business, I'm a fire service instructor for a community college, and I work for a concession vending company selling lemonade, and hot chocolate at college home football games. In all the jobs, it's the people I work and interact with and the sence of acomplishment that makes them enjoyable.

    teach Architectural Technology at a community college in North Carolina. I love the moment, when I'm explaining something to a student or a group of students, and their face(s) light up with recognition as they get it. Great stuff.

    I am professional auto detailer, and owner of my own company, Absolute Shine Auto Spa. I followed my passion for cars and now work everyday with anything from a Ferrari to a mini them all! When I found Red Kap at the S.E.M.A. show in Vegas I knew I would be using them for my work wear. Now I look like a true pro and not just some guy who washes cars! Clients trust me with their cars even more when I show up looking the part!

    I am the Executive Director of two Assisted Livings in Northwestern Ohio. I love taking care of our senior citizens. They are a lot of fun to be around. The stress has left their lives for the most part, and they spend their days playing Bingo and napping. Lots of great stories about the good old days.

    Im the Tooling Specialist for AAR Areostructures and Interiors. My whole day consits of turning wrenches, precision aligning, and lots of greasy, oily, components. Having a job where there is a tool in my hand and dirt on my skin is a better feeling than any 3 peice suit can give! I take pride in every part i touch and love working hard for a living.

    I may not be the stereotypical person who is a Red Kap wearer. I spend my day in a professional office, often wearing a suit and tie to pursue my vocation. After work, though, nothing is more relaxing and gratifying than to put on my comfortable Red Kap work shirt and head out to the shop to wrench on classic American muscle cars. After sitting at a desk all day, I MUST create something with my hands, and there is no better feeling than the first fire-up of a rebuilt example of American automotive history. So, does your lawyer wear Red Kap and have grease under his fingernails? No? Maybe you have the wrong lawyer!

    My primary job (the one that pays the salary that covers my rent) is working as a Laboratory Engineer in a high current test lab. They actually pay me to blow stuff up for a living by using too much electricity! Not really sure how I could NOT love this job...
