Ironically, they want me to be bored. Not officially, of course. But if I'm having to look for stuff to do, then that's a good thing. If I'm busy, then that means there is a serious problem (often involving scrapping of material, etc).

Usually I'm bored. Trivial tasks, some data analysis, that sort of thing. But every now and then we have a problem that makes me not bored. In those instances I sometimes have to stay late, come in on Saturdays, etc.

But they really don't want me to be busy because of the nature of my job.
