Soooo here's to hopin...



I'm currently awaiting response from two companies for a summer 'internship' with corporate...

First up is Ford, $16/hr, would have to relocate to dearborn for the summer... typical 'we will train you, etc kinda thing' while I am REALLY interested in this opportunity, esp. as I love ford... There's also another opportunity that, honestly, at this point seems to be more likely to happen..

With..

Toyota, It would be doing much the same as ford (preparing new products for development/release, whether it isdiagnostic tools, vehicles, etc... whatever they need help with during the summer...) Toyota actually has a better advancement structure than Ford when it comes to this entry level position... The pay? $600/ week, housing, round trip flight, and a car are all provided for those more than 50 miles away.. Location?...

Torrance, CA... I've had several phone interviews with the company so far... next step is an in person interview, where they'll fly me out there...

Meh... Just thought I'd share what's going on in my life recently,
School will be out next tuesday, until January 15th so... I'm looking forward to that also...

I'm still around, actively reading the boards, just not posting as often as I used to...

honestly, I'll probably go with whomever accepts me first... at this rate it seems like toyota will be the one... And I really wouldn't mind it... Toyota's not a bad company, at least they have good work ethics and don't lay off 30k some employees just to be able to cover their budget...

Was the same position that he is going for, but I worked for a ford dealership for about a month and quit. It sucked big hair donkey balls. Though I did love driving the cobra's and saleen's and lightnings around.

Re: Soooo here's to hopin...

Good luck Monte. The job market sucks right now, atleast in FL. I was laid off two months ago, & still haven't found anything worthwhile. I'm a certified Yamaha outboard technician, was making $17\hr when I was let go, now all anyone wants to pay is $10-12\hr, GIMME A BREAK!!!

Huntsville has a freaking ton of government jobs and contracts. Mercades also has a plant in Birmingham where they build the vehicles.
