I start on the 28th. Second shift. They accepted all 3 of my requests in negotiations. I got 3 weeks of vacation instead of 2. Nearly twice as much relocation. I asked for $2 more an hour, which I will get after 6 months of working there.

The pay is 13% higher than my last job even without the extra $2.

All that needs to be done now is passing a basic physical and drug screen. Im waiting for them to find a place to test me at out here which will probably be next week.

Dont have a place yet. Going to do a staggered move. Im going to find a room to rent for a few months and look for a house and come back to California every few weeks. Once I find a place Ill come back and get the wife and cats. But its in the Madison area.

You can expect topics involving the apartment search and all the boring, angry details that come along with that in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

Well, I don't want to coup them up in a single room where I am. I might take 1, maybe 2. But it's still going to be a hassle to take the rest no matter what.

Like the next person said, the company is in Wisconsin, I'm in California. They were able to find a clinic that's in their network, but it's about a 2 hour drive. We're going to use that one just to expedite the process. That and there's a couple of places we go to eat at out there every now and then.

It was a local place about 3 blocks from where I'm going to work. A pub. It was pretty good, decent burger.

It wouldn't matter much, as they're all forced to find their areas as they go. They didn't all come into this house at once either.

Nope. I don't work with my face in machinery. And most of what they have is CNC stuff anyway.

I've had my beard almost my entire career and I've never once gotten close to an accident.

For long distance moving, I've used ABF freight. You rent space in the back of big rig trailer. You load your stuff first, then a wall goes up. Then they load in other stuff going that way. It is a very cost effective way of moving a lot of stuff.

I highly recommend it. I've used it once and my buddy has used it several times.

Its not my giant one. A regular sized one. I wont be able to use the large one in this shop. There isnt enough room. Ill either sell it or use it as my garage box when I find a place to live. Which is why Im contemplating just buying a cheap box at Home Depot or something for the mean time until I move and being my regular stuff with me.

Looking into it, thats not going to work. The street I live on cant really have a big rig and trailer come down it. When my wifes desk was delivered on a pallet from a freight service they had to park on the next street over and bring it down with a pallet jack.

And the closest terminal is 230 miles away. Lol.

Also, possibly due to the distance from their closest terminal, it really isn't cheaper than Uhaul. Too bad.
