Light at the end of the tunnel

So i got a callback from a place yesterday requesting a second interview.  Basically they explained what they had to offer to me.  Originally the game plan for them was to put me on a truck to do greasing and refuelling of road equipment for 22 bucks an hour.  Now they want to put me with one of the journeyman technicians and have him show me all the tricks to becoming a better technician.  As a journeyman tech i should know all that by now but i don't.  The last few employers i have had didn't teach me enough, especially the one who i did my apprenticeship under all i did was wash machinery and build kits so the other techs wouldn't haveta go scurrying for parts when installing attachments onto equipment.  Long story short, this company made life harder for me.  Now every place i apply to they see that status and think "Oh a journeyman hes got the experience and all the knowledge" guess again, been through many jobs because of that.  I'll know in a few days if i have this job or not, i'm crossing my fingers.  If i do, its gonna be long hours in the summertime but during the winter it'll be simple hours, good time to relax :-)

Thats my story today, thankfully i got lots of leftovers from last nights chili so i don't have to cook anything up tonight, gonna be a relaxing evening :-)

  8. Where is this job? It sounds like the typical oil rig job in northern Alberta, near me. 22 bucks an hour is nice for some pretty straightforward work.
