Nice! You get to bring some of the meat home?

Chatted with the other Bank this morning, and since they can't "recruit" me I just need to apply online. Then they will take it from there. Seems :notbad: so far, but the commute would be a biatch to either of the corporate offices that I know of.

Make more :waxer: and get something to slay highway miles in? :math:

Dude on my team put in his two week's notice last week.. CEO just announced that they're going to back-fill his spot with an "entry level quote specialist". :bs: They're trying to fill his spot with a less experienced person so they can pay them less, even though they haven't hired anyone to fill the gap left by my boss when he left months ago. They keep cutting corners like this and shoveling more work onto those of us who are still here, but that's not sustainable.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

I'm fairly confident that when you leave the military and apply what you know in the private sector you can make quite a bit more.

Smart guys that have military experience beyond holding a rifle actually command a good salary. I believe that part of it is that they are used to the chain of command and know how to give and take orders to get a job done.
I'm on my last bag of peas.
