    Job security! Some poor kid is going to jump on that. Dive in with no life jacket and make some one a lot of money to swim in and save them.

    They don't do any of the repairs on the bigger machines there. They sub out punching tubes and overhauls. I went and covered for a site for 3 weeks and it certainly wasn't for me.

    So they are looking for a phone operator? I don't understand these places. They will hire a super tech that can smooth talk and not hack it in the field. Super tech will touch things he shouldn't and in a couple of years have a good deal of everything f'ed up. Then contractors come in and "screw us" because lord knows super tech knew what he was doing, his resume said so. They should contract out with a company that knows what they are doing. They might save money over the life of equipment.

    The couple projects I knew about the budget was extremely tight. They look for general maintenance types with an EPA universal card. The facility I was at was 135,000 square feet and the staffing plan was for one person....

    They been posting this job here for ages. Finally they took out a half page ad in the paper, evidently without salary. My dad sees it all excited and says this might the job I been looking for! Had to calm him down gently

    If you read my post in the "are you a first round draft pick sitting on the bench?" post in this section, you will see that there is never a shortage of workers for the right pay under the given circumstances.
