My most recent experience is about five years forklift experience, as well as five years inventory management, one and a half years shipping/receiving. I currently work for a machine shop, but its in the middle of some nowhere mountain town with fuck-all to do and nobody cool to meet. No friends outside of work, women here are a bunch of of hairy, bitchy she-goats. Lonely as hell here.

Pay is ok for cost of living here, I guess. I started at 11/hr, currently at 14.50/hr six years later. I hear shipping clerks are hired at 12-13/hr. now and do nothing but fuck around on their phones all day and fuck up customer orders. Our supervisor (newly minted manager) is an inept idiot who'd rather over-hire instead of providing adequate training, and won't acknowledge those who aren't fucking up the program. I basically show up to work everyday now to put in the bare minimum and collect a paycheck. I'd love to moved far away from here by April.

I was thinking about the Oregon/Washington area, maybe even Nevada. But really, I'd be open to moving anywhere at this point and working for any company as long as the pay was fair, the area had at least some variety of stuff to do, and there's some hope of finding some girls to kick it with.

Open-ended, but I'm just perusing job boards endlessly and hoping to find something worthwhile. Totally open to suggestion.

I work for a top shipping company in the transportation & logistics divisions. If you have any questions, let me know.

I live in a mountain town too.

where you don't lose your girl, you just lose your turn.

I don't have anything to add, just wanted to stop by and sympathize. life up here isn't bad, you just have to lower your expectations.

Join me.
It will suck your soul out and some of the reports of awful work conditions are half-true, but you'll start at 12.50 on nights and the only thing you ever have to do to fly under the radar is the absolute bare minimum of work.

Being forklift experienced means that even as a tier 1 you'll probably have something cushy to do rather than shitty and with 5 years in inventory management you'll become a tier 3 before the end of the year and be comparatively rolling in it.
Google amazon.jobs.

It's so fucking easy to just cruise and not give a single FUCK about building performance since you're one of 2000+ people in the building. Sometimes I feel guilty about how little I care.

Oh, I'll note that I was guaranteed raises at 6mo increments and in 3 years capped out at 14.75/hr. And I have AMZN RSUs that are granted basically yearly. And all I do is show up and fucking trudge.
