    I just heard on the radio, that this sat in Stratford, Sikorsky Aircraft is holding a job fair for a lot of new employees....

    if your in the need...it would be something to set a day aside and to go check it out....

    They are mentioning, aircraft parts installer, wire installers, and a lot of other jobs that is just plain easy...only a HS deploma or GED is needed, and other jobs popping up for people that have some machine type skills...

    Their website is not listing much...but when I see something...I'll post it....

    this year we have 80 chopper to deliver...and next year they want 300+...from a rumor I heard.....so that means plenty of work and job security...plus all the friggen bennies... :)

    heard it hear....



    /apologies for another job post...but this time they are serious...

    on another board, I posted it, and one kid applied...and he starts 10/10/05....

    I worked for United Technologies over the summer and my car was stolen from their world HQ . . . :rawr:



    -> Things worked out better than i expected (S14 w/SR > Civc w/B16A). UTC & its Sub's are great places to work , i have heard nothing but good things.

    I had no idea you worked there Airjokie. (except the whole helicopter thingy)

    Yup...been here for over 4 years...good money...and if I didn't have some of the bennies...I'd be in the hole so deep...I'd leave the country... :ph34r:

    But just like everywhere else...there's asshole, idiots, and peons...but there are also a lot of good people there that are willing to help out a lot.


    maybe if a few more people gets hired at Sik, and they are into drifting...we'll start a club...the Sikorsky SLiders..... :ph34r:

    I'm on the site now, and it looks like nothing but high-end engineering work and stuff I Can't do. There is also a VB / Oracle position open. But if you have Oracle, then looking for a permanent job at $35 an hour is silly. You can make, literally, twice that in CT.

    well....I was in Fla. when I got hired 4 years ago...for this job...it is worth the move to CT.

    and most jobs they are hireing for is for new people with no experiance...they like to train the right way.

    I wrote a poem about Sikorsky today:


    FUCK sikorsky.
    I will never ever apply there again. I will not go to their website,
    I will not call them.
    I will not ever even attempt to apply there again.
    Fuck Sikorsky
    If you ever suggest I apply there I will kick you in the nuts.
    Sikorsky is full of assbags.
    4 hours wait, and then to be told "We have no positions in Composites"
    When I'm sitting in the waiting room labelled "APPLICANTS FOR COMPOSITES"
    and I hear everyone elses interviews take place
    4 hours wait for 1.5 minutes of shit,
    spewn forth from the face hose
    of some clown
    who knows Airjockie "Well"
    "Oh yeah, I hired him from Michigan"

    I never EVER apply there again. Don't even mention it to me. Worse interview EV4R.

    The end.

    John.

    If I wear a sikorsky shirt, constantly wear safety goggles, even when I'm in an office or out in the parking lot, get a gut, wear my keyes on a huge caribeaner that hangs off my belt, and tuck my shirt in to show off a cell phone - Can I just walk into the place and get a paycheck?
