    When Boeing lowers SPEEA members wages and benefits to market average

    Boeing has "binders and binders" of qualified job appilcants just wishing, hoping and praying they get the call.

    BTW, many people think the Puget Sound region is one of the best places on earth to live. Personally, I'll take the weather in Puget Sound over Texas and Alabama. One thing that would make Everett a better place is if you were to leave.

    • From Newsweek: At its worst in September 2009, the unemployment rate for engineers reached 6.4 percent, versus nearly 10 percent for all occupations. By the middle of last year, it had dropped to under 2 percent.

      Job prospects for engineers "are really good, especially for young ones," says Lawrence Jacobson, executive director of the National Society of Professional Engineers in Alexandria, Va. He and other industry watchers see demand across the board, especially in electrical, biomedical, aerospace, computer, automotive, environmental, mechanical, and petroleum engineering.

      Having been on several hiring teams during the last month I can attest that the binders and binders don't turn out to have that many prospects because 1) the vast majority are not qualified for the engineering jobs and 2) the ones that are have already been hired.

      Boeing had to change their hiring process to give managers on the spot authority to hire because they were losing too many good prospects because it took so long for the bureaucracy to process the acceptances.

      Also, Boeing has stopped trying to hire at top tier universities because the offers were not competitive. The new list of "emphasis" schools is mostly second and sometimes third tier. Not to say there are not good people there but they are deliberately trying to get bargains instead of going after the best. That's going to catch up with Boeing eventually.

      It is highly unlikely that Ed Wells would be hired with the current system.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • So Mr Mouth-

      Why don't you try and make me leave?

      Friggin board bravery is all you have.

    • Stop your mouth from jawing unless you are willing to meet up to discuss things with me face to face.

      I mean it. You are a coward and I am saying it as clear as I can. You don't have the guts to stare in my eyes and say the things you do to me face to face.

      • Booger Boy,

        I have offerred to meet with you on several occassions and you never showed up. You know it and I know it. You even lied about being parked in the parking lot right in front of the Snohomish golf course restaurant which we both know isn't true because there is no parking lot right in front of the Snohomish golf course restaurant. You also failed to show up at the corner of Hewitt and Colby in front of Opus Bank.

        Now, I'm no a coward and I'll meet with you, but why do you consider me a coward if I don't meet with you? Please tell me what your purpose and intentions are.

    • au.kingfish,
      agree with you.

      Sentiment: Hold
