Time for a change.

Postby Sparky » Thu Jul 28, 2016 10:09 am

I have 17 years done where I am right now, and I am due for a change. I don't agree with the direction taken by management (KPIs, stats, surveys, emails fucking galore to back your ass) and will be looking for something else.

So... if you know of something involving heavy machinery support (20+ years as mechanic/tech support), management (managed a 110M$ fleet of equipment and ran a shop), PM me. LOL

Gonna put a headhunter on my case soon.

Shit's gotta change. I want to work for a company with a positive attitude... not one that just puts those words on a wall poster and consider it instantly part of their culture.

I actually thought of you. You were so happy to find the job that fits you. Kind of what I am aiming for. Policy and management changes have rendered things difficult. I have changedjobs within my organization, but I feel it's time for a fresh start.

Sounds familiar, even if I got sick of being self employed as a restoration contractor working for myself. Management was easy to get on with, but CRA, Workmans comp, and an incestuous insurance industry among all the others not so much.

Best of luck, you won't regret it, life's too short to not enjoy what you do for such a significant percentage your conscious reality here.

And If I manage to get sales up to a volume that requires my own factory, I will be calling you!

Nothing would make me happier than to work in pinball. Alas, I don't see many opportunities.

Great idea... I would LOVE to work for convicted smugglers performing hackjobs for less than minimum wage.

They screwed me out of a lot of money already. I won't even set foot in that humanity-cesspool.
