Default Mojo request...

May seem like a petty deal, but I'm going tomorrow for an entrance exam for a maintenance position at the new Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga.

I've wanted a maintenance job for a long time, got an Associates in Mechanical Engineering with a concentration in Industrial Maintenance for that exact reason. Pays $22/hr bottom, with a ceiling of $27/hr. Needless to say, for a single 23 year old adventurer, that's a hell of a deal.

That said, this job means a lot to me. Anything's hard to find right now, much less a great start like that.

If you folks could send some good ol' fashioned Volksrodder mojo my way, it'd be much appreciated.

Thanks folks.

Well good luck on the exam! I will be talking with them next week to see if there are any Environmental Safety/Health positions available. The Nukeworker world seems a bit saturated right now, so I must branch out.

Interested to hear how it goes!

Saying a big prayer for ya guy, hope you get it.
Will we see you next weekend at CYW???? Ian is bring his bug as Jolene isn't ready for the trip, spent to much time with the bug getting the bug in shape to be his daily. Maybe in fall we'll bring both, as we're still chasing an electrical snafu in the bus

I worked for VW of America back in the 80's. Good company to work for. Make them lots of money so I can keep getting my retirement check each month. :) Pop

The mojo and prayers helped a ton!!!!

The test went really well. Got hung up on some stuff in the pneumatics section, but everything else seemed to go smoothly.

My understanding is that they'll begin interviewing after they've tested the majority of the Maintenance people, which will probably be another month or so. I'm stoked, it's a super cool location and a great job.

Thanks for the thoughts guys.

Back in th 80's when I worked for VW, you could get company cars,(anything that they made) that were 6 months old for about 1/2 price. You just had to agree to not sell it for 6 months. I bought my son a 6 month old Rabbit in 1984 for $4550. It had 6K miles on it. I think the original sticker price was $9750. It had 300K on it when he sold it while in the Airforce years latter. pop

Those good vibes must still be flowing.

I got a call today from them, wanting to schedule my hands-on maintenance skills test! I'll hopefully be going down to take care of that business on Tuesday.

Thanks guys/gals!
