    John has it right as the bullet format works for some companies but not all.
    You have to "pimp yourself out" on paper and also play the field too. When I accepted the job I currently have now I was in the running for 3 other jobs with other companies. I left it to fate and the first reasonable offer that came my way. After I was hired I later found out that it was between another individual and myself. He was given the job but demanded a stupid amount of $$$$ to take it. Then I was contacted and offered a fair amount (in my opinion) and accepted.

    Two days later two more job offers came in that I turned down as I had already accepted the one I have now.

    What I'm trying to say is apply at multiple companies. All eggs in one basket is a bad bet.

    You should have left that original post, I think you and Goat both nailed it.


    There are so many issues that separate the Boeing higher ups and the grunts. Look at the 787, management decided it was best that we out sourced both the engineering and the fabrication on many parts, look what happened, a bunch of flaws in both aspects. Who takes the blame? The grunts. Who pays the price for managements fuck up? The grunts. And who got a big ass bonus? Well it wasn't the grunts.

    People from the outside looking in don't see what people in the company see.

    Boeing is playing a dangerous game of chicken, sure you can build new factories and "train" new workers, but you can't replace the knowledge and workforce we have here.

    Many big companies use automated filters for keywords, and if you don't use 'em, you're screwed... The best way to find a job where people want you is to represent through words, what you can bring the company, and M O S T Definitely talk to someone on the inside, it's always better to get through a few hoops based upon who you know.

    And btw, boeing will suffer and FAIL if they don't negotiate with honest intentions (besides maximizing profit).

    Good luck with the job search Tex!

    Sorry to jack this thread, but if anyone is or knows of a buyer on the electronic component (IC's, resistors, connectors, cap's) side at Boeing I would be grateful for a PM. Boeing or any OEM/CM would be very much appreciated.

    Some of my best buyers/purchasing managers are fellow fishing & hunting enthusiasts much like myself.

    Always a good time to chat about our passion while conducting business.

    Thank You!

    Number one don't LIE. Have all your copies of diplomas, certificates, classes that apply, mitary cards, references primed and ready And DATES CORRECT. The Company wether Rockwell, Northrop, SpaceX, or Boeing, they are resourceful in HR. A blimesh on your record means no TS Clearance/decreases your chances and job opps. The fishing nerds will love this, you will be given a physical on sight. Good Luck, The rest is classified.........

    Don't have direct help on wading through Boeing's HR. But, I do have an offer for all. I'm a PR guy/former journalist. I'm happy to read through any resum├ęs or cover letters or applications you guys are submitting for grammar, keyword suggestion or anything else. I'm also connected to several recruiters and can ask them for additional help if need be.

    Good luck to all those looking for a change or a way to pay for launch fees...

    I've never worked for an union except one time as a kid after school bagging fish meal for Wa Crab so I could have gas money for the car that I bought from money I earned baiting hooks, washing puke from seasick tourists and working in the cranberry harvests. I didn't realize I was "entitled". Still don't think I'm "entitled".

    I don't shop at Walmart either, can't stand the place but walk around your house and tell me honestly how much crap you have from China. Ever go shop at Cabelas...how much of the crap is from China.

    Like I said I don't have any experience working for unions. I don't know anything about your situation so I won't comment on it. But here's an observation having grown up in the Grays Harbor area (Grayland). As a kid I remember the mills in Aberdeen would go on strike for what seemed like almost every summer. It seemed like they just wanted more summer vacation. Strong union town. I moved out of the area over 30 years ago. It's downright depressing driving through the ole home town. Timber industry not in the best times due to the spotted owl and other horseshit. Deep water port, rail system, you would think some sort of industry would want move in. But who would want to invest into that sort of history? Something to think about huh?

    And then my experience with unions. Stevedore union or whoever the fuck they are. A few years ago the boat I was running was working working on hake off the coast. We came into Port Angeles to off load and then do a mini lay up period to get ready to go back North to AK for the pollock B season. Had local welders ready to work, some hotel rooms, buying groceries and maybe some long term plans to base there instead of Seattle. We off loaded our frozen product to a tramper at anchor. Moved to the dock to off load fish meal. Sling a pallet to the dock, grab it with a fork lift and the the union pricks jump on and block us. They didn't have any rights/claim to that dock. I called the port official, he couldn't/wouldn't do anything. I called the police, she arrives, explain the problem, she calls the Chief, he arrives, I explain the problem, he is just a bump on the dock. I then ask him what he would do if I jumped on the fork lift and started to move the pallet of meal to the container with the union pricks standing on it. Replied "I don't know." I asked if he would arrest them, "I don't know." Would he arrest me, "I don't know." Flipped him the bird about three feet from his face and told him his city go go fuck itself. Pulled the boat away, went Seattle and did our work. There were many people in PA pissed as hell as the union cost them a bunch of work and sales. Those pricks felt they were "entitled" and were detrimental to the community.

    Oh yeah since I don't work for a union would you tell me where I can get some entitlements and a silver spoon to scoop them up with as all I've have ever done through my life is work my ass off and pay taxes. And please don't tell me to sign up for Obamacare...oh wait you union guys don't like that either cause you're entitled to more right.

    Sorry sore subject as I have to deal with the stevedore pricks every time we off load. The last one was the union trained certified boom operator was dumping cases of frozen product cause he didn't seem to know how to run the sticks smoothly. Told him he had to smooth it out. Got some lip from him and then I see him running the sticks while talking on the phone at the same time. His foreman wouldn't do anything except walk around with his finger up his ass. My throat was sore the next after I finished "talking" to them. Supposedly he got a reprimand.....oh my.

    The issue at Boeing is not purely a union issue. Its an issue with the company not respecting its work force. Management fucked up and ended up costing the company a lot of money and reputation, and now the workers are being forced to feel the squeeze. Wouldn't that piss you off? Especially if you company is making record profit? If you just read what is in the news you don't get the bigger picture. I can't comment on any other union but I know it is the only protection we have.

    Larry, union or non-union is obviously a very sore subject to some. First you have to get your damn foot in the door!
    Boeing has union and non-union positions....depends on the specific position.

    As we have talked in the past, I will send job information your way when I know of them.

    Of course there are 2 sides to every coin. In one sentence you say management cost the company a lot of money then in another sentence you say the company is making record profit. Which is it? and who doesn't respect who? Remember, if management wasn't steering the company to make a record profit then the union members wouldn't have jobs... it's as simple as that.

    From an outsider looking in (with friends & family that work both union jobs and management jobs at Boeing) it clearly appears that this particular union believes they have more power over the company than they really do. Like it or not, we live in a world wide economy and if the management believes they can make a profit by shipping jobs where the labor is cheaper then they will do that because it will make them a bigger profit. I'm willing to bet Boeing management has spent oodles of time & money studying this and if they believe cheap labor will offset the costs of building new infrastructure and quality control issues, they will invest in infrastructure elsewhere and move the jobs away from here.

    Hopefully the shortsighted union will realize this before it's too late.

    Oh and Larry... good luck on the job search. What are your skills?

    :shithappens: I'll keep it short.

    IMO The union leadership should get on their knees and beg Boeing and union members for another vote.

    My reasoning for that comment is based on what I'm seeing and hearing. Every day since the rejection vote the news has done extensive stories on where Boeing is looking to locate the 777X assembly facility. All of these potential locations are actively seeking Boeing's 777X assembly facility. They will do ANYTHING they can to lure those jobs to their state. While here in Washington State a newly elected socialist city council member in Seattle is calling for a labor rebellion against Boeing as well as pushing for a $15 an hour minimum wage. What is Boeing's motivation to stay? They've run the numbers, they know what they want and what they are willing to pay, they've done this before. It is very unlikely that Boeing will budge.

    Since the union has some what of a gag order on their members, I'm only hearing one side of the story.... but really, at this point, it doesn't matter. Union leadership needs to get this ball rolling long before it is in someone else's court. They need to save the jobs of future members here in Washington state.

    I've spent half my life in unions and the other half out. We need em, but they need to do the right thing when conditions call for tough choices.

    I'm damn near done working. I'm entitled to my fucking opinion! :waglleybooty: There are a ton of people here in Washington that depend on a strong Boeing presence that don't work for Boeing. Post your own opinion and piss off! :rofl:

    Does this mean I'm not invited to fish off your boat next year? :hali_olutta:

    The union leaders need to fix this before it isn't fixable.
