I had a guy after two weeks of work just up and quit. When I got a hold of him and ask him why he quit he told me that he couldn't stand working at a place where the people stand outside and smoke cigarettes or read books for most the day.

I asked him what's that got to do with this job, they don't work for our company, they are another business in the business park?
HE HUNG UP THE PHONE ON ME......  :yike:

The Scary part of this whole fiasco is that these clowns are supposed to pay our SS.
I'll need to work till I'm 70 just to make sure I'm not overly dependent on them.
God forbid we would ever have to have a real war.

Heck, I'd have to join the army cause the kids are candy asses.

I've seen kids who can't change a chain on a saw.

OK, back on topic.

:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I have two top of the class multiple wabo certified(including pipe) welding students who are not getting interviews.....true they are green, but I don't understand why no calls.  Three instructors will recommend them, if you know of anything.

On the other hand the entry level wages I'm seeing are despicable!  $15-16 to start with a cert.  My first welding job 12 years ago was $18.  You can work at McDonald's near me for $12.

Some of these jobs are highly skilled which require years of training.
A lateral shift into Land Surveying is pretty tough without experience.
The liability of field staking a building in Seattle or Bellevue is tremendous.
There needs to be checks, verifications and cross checks so that the foundation is staked perfectly.
Having someone say it's right with out proof does not cut it.
There are no Mulligans on this stuff.

So, those young guys who switch jobs, you can have them.
We want guys who are willing to learn and dedicate to the team.
We as employers reciprocate by providing training, opportunity and steady, secure employment.
Are we demanding, hell yes.
There is a lot riding on our work, no room for mistakes.

Another thing is finding guys that are willing to work outdoors in the weather.
You have to find a very intelligent individual that understands advanced mathematics-geometry that is willing to get rained on for 32 weeks a year.  He must be fit, able to work with clients and self disciplined to get the job done with little or no direct field supervision.

I am sure that this stuff applies to many vocations that you others work in.
It is scary to think where this is all going given the pool of labor we have available.

Still Looking.

This is exactly what I'm looking for minus the education. Someone willing to show up and pay attention and learn. We have plenty of room for advancement but you have to worth us advancing. I am literally down to two employees right now. Great job for a kid out of high school who doesn't want to go to college but wants something he won't top out in.

Too bad these kids apparently don't exist.

Northwest Cascade is looking for qualified people across the board for our Construction, HoneyBucket and Flohawks divisions.  We are 100% union in the field and an employee owned company. Here is a link to our website: https://nwcascade.applicantpro.com/jobs/ 

We have a lot of work on the books and we haven't slowed down in a couple of years with our current growth cycle.  We are really looking for: Heavy/Civil PM/Estimator, Foremen, mainline diggers, finish blade operators, grade checkers and pipelayers. If you're not in the union, no worries as we have the ability to get you in. Most of our work is in Pierce County and prevailing wages. PM me if you have any questions.

Looking for work, willing to relocate for the right gig, currently in Bothell.

I currently run a help desk for our company's mobile apps.  I built my department from the ground up.  Now it's me and one other guy helping me out.  I'm sort of a jack of all trades, master of user support and aggregating feedback/data into reports so no one else has to interact with our users. I'm great at making and keeping people happy.  I am allowed to run my own show here because I keep our users happy and my boss doesn't need to mother me- he doesn't want to talk to any users and thinks of me as the shield. 

I'm willing to learn and do anything (change industries, get sent to school).  I'm 32 and have a B.A. and know what is expected in the workplace in order to succeed.  PM me to get in touch.

Point those guys towards some sort of union construction trade. Pipefitters or Iron workers would put their skills to use, and they should start a damn sight above $18. Plus healthcare, retirement, vacation, etc. Depending on the trade, paid parking or tools as well. I can't think of a single trade making less than $30/hr in wages, and most are between $40-50. Hell, the plumbers just got $20 over 6 yrs for the contract they signed last week.

Anybody want to give a hard working 27 year old a chance in the Spokane area?  I just finished a 10.5 hour day at my current job which start at six AM!  I show up on time every single time!  I have my bachelor's degree in business administration and looking at furthering my education.  I'm interested in pretty much any apprenticeships and have applied for two including HVAC but no call backs.  I'm also interested in insurance (crop insurance would be my top choice) or real estate or even surveying.  I was  raised on a farm and my grandparents owned a large cattle ranch in Idaho both of which taught me a hard work ethic and to have pride in my work.  I can weld, do accounting and pass a drug test!  I'm wanting to earn a career, be around positive minded people and feel appreciated.  In return I can offer some pretty bomb hunting spots in Idaho and excellent fishing locations from Canada to Montana to remote high mountain lakes! I have tons to learn and allot of hard work to give!  If interested please send a personal message.

To bad you arent on the wetside. Finding someone your age that actually has work ethic is a feat all in itself.  You can be taught the rest, but the work ethic is something you either have or you dont.  :twocents: Best of luck to you.
