    Unhappy I need to find DH a job...

    He was employed in manufacturing and with all the layoffs and plant closures it is really hard to find anything. Does anyone know of any plants or business that are hiring?? He needs to make some decent money, I can't carry us forever

    Let's Job 'Network' so we can help each other out.
    If anyone is looking for reception type work, send me a PM and I will give you a contact where I work.

    *allie* just posted in Zoo's thread that the railroad is always hiring, but it involves traveling/relocation.

    The casino in Point Edward (near Sarnia) is looking for people. You do not need experience as they will train. The last I heard it was $26/hour plus tips.

    How about the airport or 3M or the Casino? I would try all of the plants around to see also. Good Luck, I know how hard it is when DH needs to find work

    I would go to a placement agency in the meantime.

    What about a gov't agency? Don't know if he would qualify with his background but he could check it out. My DH works fulltime for fed gov't agency here in London and has been with this aggency for over 15 years now. He has a stable job, benefits, pension, lots of holiday time, etc. Only downfall would be if he had to go out on strike, as that isn't much $ at all and we live just on his income. I try not to think about the wahat ifs though and take one day at a time. I know in this day and age, there are a lot of contract works with the gov't or temp workers, so you kind of have to work your way up the chain in order to make the big bucks and get in perm fulltime but anywhere is like that anymore anyways.
    What about working for a moving company? I think some of the bigger companies pay well/hour, etc. The place where my brother works in Woodstock was recently hiring and they pay very very well. If you want, I can ask him if they are still hiring and for what positions. Would your DH miknd the drive to and from Woodstock?

    General Dynamics always seems to be hiring.

    2boysmom - I don't think he would mind the drive, he just really wants to get back out to work. I am going to check out placement agencies too.
    Thanks for all the info!

    While the casino is great short term, I find alot of people who work there, eventually burn out.

    There is a lot of political BS that goes on at the casinos! Im sure Liam&Alex'sMom could tell you about it too My Dh used to work there (for several years). And L&A'smom DH works there now.
