I've been working here for about 6 months now. They're in need of bodies.

Sorry, have to ask:
"ASQ CCT certification is required for Metrology Technician positions"

WHY?

Well, the company will pay for you to take the test.
It's just something they like to brag about, I guess.

It's an open book test. Takes 4 hours. I completed it in 2.5 It was pretty easy common sense stuff, really.

On their dime, sure.

The way the announcement is worded, it sounds like you had to have it already to even be considered. Might lose interested applicants due to that possible misconception (don't worry, I'm not one of them).

Have a good one! Hope you get some bodies!

Yeah, I'm aware. Which is why I posted on here. LOL.

I just know we are getting a tiny bit backed up with work and could use some people - and figured if anyone knew of anyone looking - this would be the best way to get word out. :)

RSI? PASS!, have you worked for them? The lab is pretty good, lots of work to do and great opportunities for advancement if you are not s-bird. We want people here that know what is going on. This is not your run of the mill commercial cal lab or DOD lab. We do alot of actual Metrology here. If you want to come on board then you need to have your stuff together.

Chuck is here and working on video and power supplies.

Pay, I believe, is dependent upon experience level and such. But, it's decent. And in Texas, no state tax!

lol. being anal and being an a-hole are two entirely different things!!!  :wink:

i guess Chuck's just trying to say it ain't all bad. don't diss what ya don't know and such.

i didn't post this to cause any arguments or whatever, i just thought if there was a fellow tech out there that was looking in the area, it'd be nice to know that something was available.

now, 'scuse me while i finish calibrating these microphone pre-amps.  :-D

Houston has some of the most oppressive weather conditions I've ever been in.  It's great from say, Oct - Apr, but the Summers there are horrid.
