    One complete lap on the 3rd floor is a tick over a mile, all inside.
    At Highland Park, you'd have to go between some buildings to get around.
    That sucked when it was 10 below zero in January. Or during the hot summer of 1988...

    Lol, sorry, been busy with work.

    I’m the chassis mounts engineer on DS carryover program, and I’m helping on the DT program. Still trying to learn as much as I can, and make myself as much of an asset as I possibly can.

    I’m a contract worker presently (easier to get in that way). I have an interview tomorrow for a direct hire position on the same team that I presently work on.

    Good luck with the interview. Sounds like your plan is coming together. Engineering Ram trucks sounds like a very interesting and rewarding job.

    I love it. Love every day. Are some days better than others? Definitely, but I wouldn't trade my job for anything

    Missed this thread entirely, so forgive me liking a bunch of your posts!

    But I wanted to give you a huge congratulations on your job! Sounds like we're about the same age too.

    Having had a job change forced upon me a couple years ago, I went through the whole recruiting process for real this time (graduated from college with a permanent job offer), and it's not something that I enjoyed. I'm more of a let me show you what I do, vs. tell you what I can do type of person. Anyways, the whole thing turned out to be rather worth it in the end, as I'm now working for a company where I actually understand/enjoy the end of product vs. a company that did consulting for a vague subject area. Although it's not FCA, it is in a related industry, and it has a similar product cycle, product, etc. I can even see parallels between our industry and the auto industry.

    I actually wasn't hired for the first position that I applied for, but an internal move shortly after I had been turned down led the initial hiring manager to get HR to call me back and see if I was available still. Thankfully, I had just come back from a vacation, and so I hadn't gotten too far with another company that eventually offered me a job as well, so I was still available to discuss this new job and get everything settled with them.

    I am confident that you will get the permanent position.

    Thank you, I should know by next week.

    To be frank, of the people interviewing (4 from my team), I have the least experience, so I don't expect to get it. I feel my interview went well, though.

    Also, the only thing that would change for me is where I get my paychecks from and the benefits, I still have a job, independent of what happens. I know I'll go direct at some point, so I'm not worried about it. Just concerned with doing my job to the best of my abilities every day.
