    I was so happy I had to post it. I just got recalled! I didn't get my old position back but the new one has the same pay and benifits. I am going to be working in an avionics back shop. That means fixing radios, indicators, mics, in-flight entertainment stuff, ect.

    I got a phone call last week and had to take a test. It had all kinds of fun transistor theory stuff on it. Wow, it has been a long time since I've had to deal w/ that. There was also a lengthy interview. The interview went great and the test went OK. I got a call back a few days ago but I didn't want to get to excited untill I knew for sure. Well, today I got a certified letter letting me know I had the job.

    Now the hard part will be jugling it all. I went back to school when I got laied off. Work will be 8 hrs/day 5 days/wk and school will be 6 hrs/day 4 days/wk. Looks like not much wheeling this year.

    Guys that are looking; "keep the faith".

I went almost 5 months looking for a god job, it's scary that a guy like me had to look so hard to find a job. but atleast I got a job, a good one. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif

    Congrats!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif After taking a year to find a job I know the joy of finally getting that confirmation.

    Funny how people hate working until they don't have a job then miss it like hell!
