Not a waste of time for either of us.

I believe that's the same contract Syprus used to advertise back in the back in the late 2000's.

Actually Tektronix was the most recent contract. Great job if you love to travel. Lots of work to be done on a tight schedule in some challenging environments and conditions. Keeping up with all of the logistics of it is the hardest part; staying on schedule and getting hotels sometimes a different one every night or 2 and arranging for flights back home. Great for hotel and flight reward programs.

Great for travel rewards not so great for seeing your family and or staying married.. Tektronix wanted me to be on the road from Monday till the FOLLOWING Thursday.. So you lose 2 weekends a month and they only wantedto pay me about $2 more an hour. That is crazy.

Tektronix bought Sypris, so you are both correct.

Is it bad that I worked for them when Syprus was Metrum.  Old...I feel old.
