        Yeh thats the biggest mistake you've made was tellin me your job placement. Alot of my family does have private pilot licenses and I mean alot maybe that why my grandpa stop goin to his welding class no it was actually because the instructor was a big joke but anyways

          Yes that is possible but if that was the case i wonder why he didn't say so or that he had never used a stick welder but had other experience in the trade? It is all a big pile of unanswered questions for us

            was he prepared?

            Hey dabar39 Did he come to your shop prepared for a weld and fitting test?or did he just show up with a lid and gloves?Did he look you in the eye and talk to you?Or did he just look around the shop and at the ground or at something?When he shook your hand was it weak or strong?

            If you call shorts, tank top and flip-flops prepared, I guess he was.

              That was un freaking believable. Scary is another way to describe it.

                I think this guy has maybe been out in his garage for 20 minutes with his new stick welder and then decided to talk to you.

                            fun4now, Sorry James but I can't really afford any "help" right now. This guy just come in off the street and asked for a job. I figured I would see what he could do and if I needed to hire someone else in the future, I would keep his name in my file. As it turns out his name went into the "never in a million years file". I have a few friends in this industry and have already alerted them about this clown. My guess is that he was a trigger puller in his past and doesn't know anything else.


                            I'm thinking about calling the company in Kentucky he claims to have worked at and see what, if anything he did for them.

                            P.S. James, I'm not too sure I would hire you anyways. You're not very reliable, I'm still waiting for that lunch you promised me about 20 threads ago. Dave
