Geez, pilar, you've got the worst luck! Your life might be the perfect Country and Western song?

Do you have anything about Mama, or trucks, or trains, or prison, or GETTIN' DRUNK!

That place is still full of asbestos, they tell us not to mess with the walls or ceiling, that makes you feel safe doesnt it.

eight years working in a place full of asbestos? in this case, maybe losing your job is a blessing in disguise.

good luck with whatever career move you decide to make.

Bad times make for job security in police work. Go for it. Sorry about your job, but at least you have a game plan for the future. There are alot of Depts hiring right now. Good luck.

What part is closing? We are hauling concrete utility poles into that plant everyday, and the construction work that's going on is huge. What's thatall about?

Don't know if you have any interest in moving to Houston but the Harris County Sheriff Dept. is in a desperate hiring mode right now.

Pilar when things are at the worst is when God is with us the most. We need but have faith in him and call/pray to him for help. I will pray for you to make it through this troubled time.

God Bless.

Wow, I don't know why I thought that plant closed in the 90's!! LEO is a good bet. Harris Co, HPD, Austin PD...I would try to stay with the larger dept's..

Process operator jobs are abundant in Texas City and the Houston ship channel. Your experience would probably translate well in this industry.

Lots of guys around here pulling down 100k per year.
