    Completed my diesel program at GTCC (certificate and diploma) with mostly A's, and now I'm actively searching for my last job. Reside in piedmont triad area. Light/medium/heavy duty. Do not currently have but willing to obtain CDL's if necessary. Be nice if the company assisted. Have tools will travel within reason. Prefer first shift M-F, hourly. I know that there are plenty of opportunities out there but it sure can't hurt to post here. I've only just begun my search as I've been focusing on my education; got some irons in the fire as of this posting. Lifelong experience teaching myself and working on passenger vehicles. Hoping to learn more, develop and grow with a company. Wouldn't be opposed to working on SI stuff either. Wish me luck, send good vibes, all that jazz. Thanks, dudes and dudettes.

    Waste Management, Waste Industries, Republic Waste are always hiring. Thomasville Diesel on National Highway had a sign out the other day. You’re in the right field to find a job quickly and be picky at the same time.

    Congratulations!

    Check out indeed.com ... seems to work a little better than most job search engines.

    Penske Leasing is a good company to work for but that depends on who is the local manager. But of course with national companies that will always be the case. If I were younger and starting a career I would do something like you. I also would Fing a company that shares profits on warranty work. The money those guys make is extremely good. $90,000 plus is not uncommon.

    Im in the same boat as the OP, although a different field.
    My last class was Thursday, dropped an application at a local fabrication shop on the way home, and they called me that evening.
    I have a weld test with them Monday morning.

    Best of luck, MJ...

    So when the buses don't run now in HP, we'll know who to blame. :D:D Congrats on your new job.
