Default Finally...

After a month and a half of searching and coming up empty handed looking for a job, my search is over.

I'm not going to be an "Ultrasonic Testing Assistant" and the Flint Hills Refinery about 15 - 20 min from my house.

Pays better than any job I've had before, awesome benefits, bonus, profit sharing, 401K.


Problem is that OSHA 10 training is only done once a month, and I had my interview on Friday which also just my luck was this months training day. So I'm waiting until April 21st. So happy, can't wait to get back to making money again.

So I just thought I'd share that with ya.

If you wanna check out everything that goes on where I work, here'* a link.

Pretty much, I'm teamed up with with a Tester, and when go around doing tests on pipes on the rigs checking for thickness and possible short run issues and down town. I help him with what he needs, and I pretty much wander around with a clip board with him and write down anything he tell'* me to. I'm starting at 15/hr then after 90 days I get all my benefits and then bumped up to 16/hr.


That'* about the gist of it as far as I know.

Pretty good hours, 730 am to 4 pm mon through fri. I could pic up night shifts and weekend shifts for OT if I want to.
