I think it was a typo on their part, it's probably actually that per week. Die of frostbite and *not* get paid! That would put it in line with their other job they listed, about 5 others from Cargo Loaders to Fire Alarm techs that I found today, and they were less than that or double that PER WEEK. Boy, if you rushed down there on a Greyhound and then a Shrimpin' boat you would of been sorely disappointed!

I really want to build a heavy lift variable collective pitch quad the size of a storage shed with a high power to weight radial (stylin!) or inline aircraft engine (my Rotax 503?) in the center of the H frame. Boeing is now out of the picture. Heavy lift, rescue, construction crane, argricultural, air show, prison yard escape airlift pickup, or badass weapons platform. Whatever you want to use it for. Dual belt fed machine guns, dumb rockets, and a TV guided missle for mine, thank you very much. Just like I use to dogfight and dominate in, in 2142. Those boys *hated* me.

Now that I'm laid off, with no plans to rejoin the human race any time soon lest I drown from my lungs filled with liquid, I'm back to my socially isolated lifestyle. It's weird to see people freaking out and having trouble dealing with being socially isolated, when I've lived that way almost my entire life on a farm. I haven't had to change my behavior one bit to have zero contact. This was exactly how I was living before I started the flower shop job a year ago, right after finishing building the trailer and picking up the Poorgirl (which is still parked in the shop right where I left it).

My ex-coworker and I have to surf the job sites weekly (we call the US job boards collectively the "Ocean of Puke") and submit at least 3 jobs we applied to on the DOL kindergarden form, to qualify for unemployment. Five weeks later and I still haven't gotten the first dime from that process, just bureaucratic requests for more information, but meh I keep at it.

I'm not specifically searching for aviation jobs, because I know there just are none out there (done it before), but every now and then one like this pops up in the list of thousands of crap jobs I scroll through, and I thought I'd post it and ask; I don't know, it sounded like it had reasonable entry paramters to anybody who was a generalist with a college degree. WHICH ALL JOBS SHOULD HAVE. A LOW BAR TO ENTRY. DER. I'm a firm believer that just about anybody can do most any job, if you take 10 minutes to show them how or get them started in the right direction.

OK, so maybe I was trolling a bit myself... my bad. I was expecting the standard: "I don't like to take orders from others..." Whatever... I guess I'll just go work on finishing the condition Insp. on my Sonerai IIL.

Deeds, not words... and all that.

Those A&P mechanic guys don't seem too happy, living out of cars, working all night and going to school all day long. I think I'll pass on that just to be a grease monkey in a thankless job the public doesn't even know exists.
Please for the love of all things aviation holy, do yourself a favor and better educate yourself! Instead of googling this S&@t maybe go talk to some of us A&P's (in my case AME, Canadian equivalent), grease monkey? Do you even know what it takes to maintain todays fleet of aircraft? I have more training on one airframe then the flight crew that flies it! Specific Airframe training, engine training, avionics training, advanced troubleshooting training. I'm very happy with my work, have an employer that thinks we are on par with the flight crew. Get constant feedback from employer when/if we go above and beyond. I'm definitely NOT living out of my car, and have no need to attend school in the off time (however I would love to take a welding class, I need to look into that).

I'm trying to be polite, but your arrogance regarding aviation employment seems to be based on your laziness to get off your butt and put in the effort required to work in almost any field of employment....
