    Hello all! First of all I would like to thank each and everyone of you who replied and offered advice! The job was a good stepping stone for my career, however I quit at the end of August, 2017. The reason I quit was to pursue a better welding education at Ferris State University. Overall, the job taught me more than I thought it ever would have. As well as working along side honest, hard working people I realized that a college education will be worth it. As I mentioned I am currently enrolled at Ferris State for welding. I very much so enjoy the program and all it has to offer! Just a quick update for anyone interested! I wish everyone the best of luck in your endeavours!

    Glad for you young man, go to work and do your job and be good at it, don't make an excuse for not showing up at work ever, I was telling you in one of the previous post about a job interview, well after 41 years with a company they decided to close the office where I worked and wanted me to transfer, I said no I would take the package and leave, then they said you can work out of your house, Hello, been working out of my house for 15 years on the road as a salesman, the main office was so out of touch that they did not know that, they only looked at the good revenue that I brought them, the people I was out selling called me soon as they heard that we were closing this office and working this area from another 150 miles away, I went to work for them after a week of pay commitment to the company that I was working for and the next week on the new guys pay roll and took 100% of there business, had not a one customer say no, so be good at what you do, sometimes other are watching looking for good people.

    It would've been a lot harder if I didn't have the GI Bill to help pay for school. It takes discipline but really takes a good work ethic and coffee. Resign yourself to a life of working and school which translates to what I do now, which is work and then work some more. I think is was General Patton that said if you're in pain, that's too bad. You may as well be in pain and accomplish something, you'll have plenty of rest when you die.

    Shoot Ryan you did great 5 years for a 4 year degree. With work and family took me 6 for a 2 year AA. School and work at the same time is tough but nobody said this life is easy and the education is absolutely worth the struggle.

    Why can't you go to school at night? I did. Worked construction all day and went to night classes. Took me five years to finish my four years degree because not all the classes I needed were offered when I needed them. But I had to eat and pay the bills somehow.

    I feel the interview went well. If I dont hear back by the 19th I will be calling them back. However they did state that they cannot work around my school schedule. For that reason I feel they will not hire me. The weld test was 2 simple fillet welds using GMAW on carbon steel which was very easy. I did learn a lot from the experience and I picked up a few things that I could improve on! Thank you everyone for all of your advice! I will be posting whether I got the job or not!
    School Schedule...???

    sounds like you may have been interviewing a little prematurely................
