Darrell, Sorry to hear that. What's your occupation?
maybe someone on the forum has a referral for you.
90% of all jobs placements come from word of mouth referrals.

If you're a good fabricator, maybe I have work for you
(working on my soon to be 86 F150).
Merry Christmas.

WOW! If I ever consider a small reactor my back yard, your the 1st on my list (just kidding). Very impressive.
I had a CDL for years myself. Good friend of mine drives for Winco (Boise).

How about that new Yogurt plant? they gotta need someone to handle the power?
The other idea I had (if you're willing to relocate) is Schweitzer Engineering in Moscow. https://www.selinc.com/

The HP site here in Boise is not mfg anything anymore (all in China now). so not a lot of need for power systems.
With the recent downsizing, if there are any positions, they hire through ADECCO Technical Adecco Engineering & Technical

Good luck. If you're in town, drop me a line and we'll have a cold one

Many applications are out, including the Chobanni (the new plant), Conagra, a bio-fuel facility near Burley, Glanbia and others. I'm not in dire straits just yet, but I am working on new income. Any grapevine info would be welcome.
I do have a fallback delivering RVs out of Indiana with my pickup, so I'm not worried. I prefer not to be away from the family, though.

My experience comes from "old age" and much self teaching, as well as college. The problem is that self taught doesn't give you the certs that companies look for.

Hi Darrell,
I hear ya. I have a good friend in CA that was in the Vine nursery business.
I could connect you both if you want to talk to him. Send me a separate email and we'll exchange.

Jim, I see you reside in Mexico?? did you just move to Idaho?
If so, where do you live? I'm interested in talking to a welder.
Again, send me an email and we'll talk.

I'm a technician for ASRC energy services in Alaska. Maintain a fleet of about 500 trucks for the oilfields in Kuparuk.

srteach: There are so many options for someone with an instrumentation background in the oilfield its unbelievable. They don't present themselves as often up here but all over the lower 48. Keep an eye on jobs.asrc.com, www.ch2mhill.com, conocophillips's & BP's websites. All of our work up here is rotation. We work either 2/2 or 3/3 rotations. Meaning that I'm here at work for 3 weeks and then I get 3 weeks off to do whatever I want! I have a strong desire to get in to electrical/instrumentation. I'm working a couple different avenues right now trying to get in without having to take a huge pay cut and go to apprentice wages now that I'm peaked in my career field.

I have been the director of maintenance for a local helicopter company here in Hayden for about 17 years now. All the kids are raised and out on their own now so I am building a 55 f100 from the frame up because all I had to start with was most of the body panels and a frame.
I don't stop by this forum as often as I should, I mostly hang out on the 48 to 56 forum. If you need my attention drop me a PM here.
