    @Scott: Crappy economy. You might want to go out and tell them you'd take one of the other jobs if the preferred jig doesn't pan out.

    After my years in WW II service, I worked in a Locker Plant for two years, then became Manager of a Locker Plant and MFA Elevator Grain & Feed Co. , when tired of the long hours I then became Meat Department Manager for a United Super Market. After retiring from that I sold real estate for Centry 21 for ten years - before retireing again. I now have rental houses to keep me busy.

    Gung Ho,

    It's been a week? I'd suggest calling them back the first chance you get to tell them how much you liked the sound of the job, the things the company did, and how you'd love to become part of their organization.

    It may sound like brown nosing, but that's only because it is. After you are in, do whatever you do. Getting in the door is your main objective at this point.

    Had a real good run.

    Got out of the Corps in Jan, 70 at Treasure Island, CA., after spending 3 months at Oak Knoll Hospital. Accidentally wound up working in the retail grocery business for 8 years, before having an accident in one store that aggravated a knee injury from Nam.
    Went to school, and ended up working in product development in Silicon Valley. This went well until 2009, when I had to have that knee replaced.
    Been unemployed since. It's tough in the job market, but tougher if your over
    60, (even over 40 these days).

    One day at a time.
    Ever forward.

    Design engineering consultant , freelance, I consider myself a technical prostitute of sorts. I go where they need me and will pay me the most money. Love engineering, Cad work,. Design of machinery, nothing better than seeing your ideas come to fruition in the real world.

    When I retired from the Corps in '86 I was an Ammo Instructor in the joint school with the Army. I went back to work as one of the Army Civilian Instructors. From there I moved on getting into Inventory Management of spare and repair parts for systems used by all services and managed by the Army Aviation and Missile Command. While working for the Army, I attained a Bachelor's Degree from Athens State University and a Master's from Florida Institute of Technology. January of this year I retired and now just play.
