    Default New Job

    I've been an auto worker on fort Polk for the last 6 years loved every minute of it got to do some cool stuff get to work for soldiers that greatly appreciate what we do.

    However I have a tech diploma in industrial electronics and it has just paid off I was promoted this week to electronics tech 1.

    I work for the same company just at a different shop and making 10 dollars more an hour maintaining and installing communications equipment.

    The gun has played a critical role in history. An invention that has been praised and denounced... Served Hero and villain alike... and carries with it moral responsibility. To understand the gun is to better understand history.

    Best of luck with the new gig, CJ! FWIW, we're seeing a major shortage of your skill set in the DFW area. I think you've made an excellent move.

    Be humble of character, warm of heart and kind. You will know when it's time to flip the switch and unleash the beast.

    Excellent. Extra effort and hard work pays off again.

    C.J., your being exceptional really does pay off. Good for you!

    That's one heck of a raise, and Industrial electronics techs are in HIGH demand. Here they go for up to $50/Hr.
