"is boston expensive place to live? it seems to be an expensive place to live being historic and university town and such? I've been there in the summer, it's jammed pack with tourists."
Compared to many places, yes. I live around 8 miles south, most of our work is on the periphery of Boston, you have to be way way outside the city (Western MA, NH) before housing is "affordable" by most measures. But like I say, the trades have been very good to me and I can afford to own a home close in.
And all the streets are one way and go in circles.
Sounds like a good job offer OP, hope you find someone.
Curious that a pizza dude would apply for such a job...I don't see the connection.
True about the streets! All of them old cow paths!
Still looking for the right tech...
Lots of kids here go to "for profit" tech schools (ITT Tech, etc.) and find on graduating there are few entry level jobs available... they end up mowing grass, delivering pizza, etc while trying to catch a break into the trade. We already have our trainee that graduated tech school last year but knows very few of the required skills... (nice way of saying that the learning does not start till you are in a van).
And hopefully that learning is being personally mentored by a seasoned a technician.
Absolutely... Way back in the day all we got was "Here's your beeper, make it happen"... I spent many a terrified early morning hour alone in a boiler room, that is not the goal with our greenhorns today. I'll be 50 on Monday, different kind of terror now! :-)
