As many of you may know, DTV bought out Bruister & Assoc. this month. I was one of the many that was terminated. Why? Don't know. I'll be getting the severance package next week. Probably because I told them that I was up for a raise and a bonus on the 20th and expected it to be honored. Unfortunately, I happened to like my job a lot and I'm really pissed over being termed. So anyway, I've been with Bruister for a year. 6 months of installs and the last 6 months as a service tech. I like service work. Service work is not as easy as most installs, but I like the challenge of discovering the problem and fixing it. Is anyone hiring on the Northshore? (washington / st. tammany parish) I currently have no equipment (cov tech), but I have $4000 set back to purchase a truck and equipment. I could be up and running in just a few days. Hopefully someone out there can help - I have a mortgage and five kids and job hunting for a month or two is not an option. Edward (will work for food) McCain Bogalusa, LA.
