    Got out in 05', used the GI Bill to go to a tech school. Was a diesel and auto tech for an oil field company for 3 years, but 2 years ago moved over to the electronics side of the company. Its pretty easy when things are going well, but when equipment gets a mind of its own it can be hell.

    Been working in the Plastics injection molding field for the last 16 years. I am currently unemployed but have had two interviews in the past week at the same CO and have been told they have one of three jobs for me and will get back when they figure it out.

    @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.
