    It seems kind of like that might be who they're looking for here. I'm not sure what a "skilled Industrial Cleaner/Millwright Helper" is, but I'd bet you don't need 7 years of school and 10 years of experience to be one.

    You apparently do need all of those certifications and some kind of fancy government background clearance though, so good luck to them with that.

    Whatever. Hey BB, I say you should take a month off from your currant job and go for it! I'll even pick you up from the airport if you promise to buy me lunch and split some of that fat per diem allowance with me.

    My last job was 60-70 hrs a week. Burned me out. Mostly refrigeration.

    Hooked up with a company that does 99% commercial A/C.

    Getting older, that 40 hr work week is more healthy for me !!
