Foul,

I've read your original post about 6 times now. I still have that "deer in headlights" look on my face right now.

I have visions of a street gang kicking a guy to death when he's down. I keep thinking things are getting better for you and WHAM!

Speachless

Buck

I'm sorry for your misfortune. Move to SoCal.

I need a job too! I quit a little bit ago. Long story.

I wish you luck.

There are 90 open positions in my division of ITT (alas none in Michigan). e-mail me some quals and I'll do a key search to see if any match.

I'm sorry to hear about your luck Mike.....I cant believe that the Big Three are letting them get away with this(UAW)...They buy most of your products if they told JCI to build it in the US or they wont buy it you wouldn't have a problem!!

I'd swear we had a job set up for you a couple of weeks ago. You do remember how to run a broom, right?

Waterfoul
I used to place contract engineers for a living and when I left the company 1.5 years ago a good QA guy in automotive was making 35-50hr on contract. I have a friend still in the business who may be able to help.
His name is Chris Towns toll free 888-842-3225
I know we have worked with Johnson Controls in the past. The company he works for is Oxford International and they are very good

Mike, things will work out, they always do, especially if you are diligent and get on this right now. Take your time and if things get bad you can live with me if needed. Thats if you can stand the constant naked women and parties all week. I woke up this morning to 3 I have never seen before.
