Who works at Lee Contracting?

I noticed a lifted yj in the parking lot with gl4x4 stickers on it. I interviewed there this week and start next Monday.

Thanks. I took a giant pay cut, but the Bennies and overtime should hopefully make it worth it.

That the place on Cesar Chavez in P-Crack? They must be doing quite well since they just bought the building across from widetrack and made some major upgrades to it so you'll probably get back to where you were before. One of the contract carpenters at work was telling me about that place, apparently it is one hell of a great company to work for. He has family that works there I guess. So congrats on the new job

Your about to be working some major hours...I know a few people who work there, and probably the lady you interviewed with. They are a good place for work from what I hear.

Yes, a wage cut. They did say that 80 hour weeks were common so I should make a bit more though. They definitely seem to be doing quite well, especially for this economy.
The parking lot is loaded with lifted trucks, and the one Jeep I noticed. Always good to have things in common with Co workers.

I've known Ed for 15 years, and I do a lot of business with his Brother. Ed was the hardest working person I've ever met in my life.

I've seen that listed Jeep in the lot too when driving past on occasion. Other than that, I have nothing useful to add to this discussion.

If you don't mind me asking, what sort of position did you get with them? I'm looking at eventually trying to move back to Michigan, and I think I would really like doing something in that line of work if I could, if it would get me back to Michigan.

I work at clydes frame and wheel right next to their new building. Our old driveshaft guy works there now. Seems like a decent place. Welcome to the neighborhood. If you ever need suspension or frame work done come see us.

I have nothing to add other than I drive by that place a couple of times a day and the new building looks really nice. They put a lot of $$ into it.

i have delivered packages from grainger to them before. guys i talked to had very few complaints about the place. curious about the lifted jeeps you mention though as i drive by at least once a day i haven't seen any in the lot.

I had a couple of friends that worked there. Just one now. He drives the lifted super duty, he is a twinky, but a nice guy. He keeps offering to buy my King Ranch. I hope you are his boss. His shop name is twinky. You call him that! You call him twinky!

The other friend had to move on to better things. I was told there is a GL member there with an old jeepster but he doesn't post much here.
