the first shop manager that i meet once we bought the place he did not give a rats ass about anything as you saw in the photos above, he knew he could order parts to fix the equipment, crap i found parts from the first time i was out sitting in the tool chest...
the second shop manager was to uptight about the little things...

so who knows about manager #3 sure that i will be getting phone calls shortly....

either way i don't mind going out there to help

Wow...The funny thing is I know exactly what you mean.

Had an young applicant come in the other day, gave him a simple pipe welding test. Tries to strike an Arc for 30 seconds, knocked the flux off 10 rods till I reached over and flipped the switch to turn the welder on. Me and my shop supervisor had a good laugh at that one. He asked me, where you finding these people.

I truly believe in a few years you will see the pay scale for skilled industrial mechanics and technicians sky rocket simply because there will be no one that wants or can do it. Sucks too cause I'm on Salary Lol.
