Hey man, a 30-90 day probationary period is the norm these days.

You can tell a lot about how they present themselves and their certs. Confidence in oneself is good, false confidence in your certifications is a red flag. All my certifications did for me was get me better pay, I got all of my jobs myself. While I worked for Acura/Honda dealerships they had these "training tests" that were totally useless insofar as making a person a better mechanic. But when you get 100% of your tests updated it was worth a couple of bucks an hour pay bump.

That's exactly how i think of them too. Good for expanding your pay grade but not what gets you in the door. And yes trip, a probationary period is SOP.

Oh he does. I'm definitely paying for my raising. He usually does something mischievous and them acts all sweet and cuddly to stay out of trouble. Not quite 2 and he can already play the system.

Good to know... I think you don't fully appreciate the reaction I get looking for a job in this industry though...

Here's our white one with paint. Lights and a drop visor will be put on later I ended up cleaning DPFs today.
