    Sorry to hear it. Be sure to respond to the email with a thanks for the interview and request follow-up is anything changes. Do you have any sense of where it went off the rails in the interview?

    Congrats on the job, depending on what you need for air tools I would consider checking craigslist for used as well as buying new. When I look on craigslist I see a lot of pawn shops list their tools there.

    Great result. I have been in your locale before at the Pratt & Whitney plant (now A-R) and the St Lucie nuclear plant, but takes connections to get hired at those places. Sounds like a job one could love, at least how they appear on the cable shows (if you discount the staged drama). Ditto on always call them back. When I was finishing my M.S. in Mech Engr (late 1970's), I was 2 wks from graduating and still no offers. I finally called one company back to ask why I never got a rejection letter, and they said they mailed an offer letter 2 wks ago, so grabbed it (and good pay). Last time I was out of work 5 months then got 2 offers the same week. I was just told I am out of my current job in 6 weeks, but expected for over a year since the plant is closing. I will finally have time to catch up on home jobs, like my 3 1960's Mopars. Probably won't work again unless a really challenging opportunity or I get really bored.

    I have more news. I was just offered a job working for a jail as a maintenance mechanic. It has insurance. What to do now.

    What's the problem. You go with the insurance. No brainer.
    And you'll meet the nicest people. Honest.

    Seriously, take the prison job.
