Not really sure what I'm looking for.... But I'm just going to keep it real.
31/m Worked for 5 years at a wild and forage food distribution center / retailer. Was floor manager for 2 years. Quality control, checking in and recieving product, general maintenance (warehouse upkeep, lights, plumping, small building etc) Kind of a tinkerer.  I do have a criminal background but it was one conviction over 10 years ago and literally have only had a few speeding tickets since then.
I know beggars cant be choosers but I very much am gonna do so. I don't want random oddball jobs just to fill a quick buck - Id love something long-term that can I devote my time into. Naturally with me my whole life is like that. My focus becomes an obsession at perfect, and I either fail or succeed.
I have great common sense and the ability to learn quickly. I've been pretty much an open book over the last few years so don't be afraid to pry.
I'm not looking for handouts, or free rides. Just need a sense of purpose.
Preferably not a 2+ hour drive one way 5 days a week.
I'm located in Yelm/Eatonville area.
Willing to travel about an hour one way. ''

Honestly terrified of change and getting into a whole new line of work, but TBH electrical is something Ive always been interested in but lack any type of real knowledge on the subject. Possible Electrical Apprentice?
Not really sure what I want to do, just know Im not getting any younger.

Study your math and then study it some more before you take the aptitude test.  They ask some basic but rigerous algebra.

I just saw a sample test. I think itís to see if you can do the math, but it was pretty rigorous algebraic.

Looking for seasonal help through the summer on construction projects.  Work is in the Yakima area but if applicants are from out of the area compensation is given for lodging.  Must have Highway construction experience and materials testing (density, concrete testing, etc) is a plus.  Contact me for more info.

I used to have boolean algebra down like a science. That was when I got my GED over 10 years ago though. Now I cant even fricken remember multiplication tables.
Im sure it would be fairly ok to pick right back up but math in general sucks.

What struck me was all the unit cancellation via fractions. Hadnít seen that since Chem 182

Looking for a job with the Forest Service?  Do you have a communications background or experience?  Veteran or government employee looking for something else?  Well we are hiring 10 different location across the country if you looking for that move.  2 right here in WA.  One in North Bend (that would be working for me) and one in Wenatchee.  This is currently an outreach so only available to current government employees and veterans.  Closes the 26th and if it isn't filled will go out on USAjobs.  I have attached the outreach and if you have any questions feel free to PM me.  I can tell you about the job and the locations in WA.  Outside of WA I can find and POC for you.
