If you have the time and want to work very hard, that is the best way to get your foot in the door at a major airline. There are so many of us that are on layoff that the possibility of just getting hired off the street for maintenance is very difficult. There are obviously ways to get on, but usually in much less desireble locations or with companies that pay considerably less money.

I'm a Freight Car Mechanic for a certain not so small Rail Transportation System that ships across the U.S. But I work at a single location 40hrs a week with OT. Finally off graveyard shift after 9yrs of employment so far. Kind of boring and repetative but the Bene's are good, retirement is decent and set hours. Other than that I'm a Dad of two awesome little boys who love to go camping and wheeling. May make a career change later in life but that will come after my responsability of raising my boys is done...then who knows where I'll end up

not as bad as you think, especially when you consider an offshore rig is 1/2 million /day to operate.

Theater Master Electrician at a University for now (they may lay off someone at my theater at the end of the school year). I'm responsible for adequately lighting events that take place in my theater and implementing lighting for any shows that have their own Lighting Designer. I also freelance at some local theaters helping to set up the lighting for their shows.
