I would look at a CDL class and get some experience. Got a friend who drives for Frito Lays and makes over 100K a year. Got another friend who is an executive with Frito Lays and makes over 800K a year, great benefits too

Man I totally would. Unfortunately when I was 19 was stopped in College Station on no refusal weekend and got a DUI. Biggest mistake of my life but I have to live with it and learned my lesson the hard way.

Got a nephew in the same boat. Good luck, if I think of anything else Iíll pass it along. Why about a lineman job? I know absolutely nothing about it but if you do not mind heights and chasing storms it may work out. Not sure what kind of hours they work.

Ever thought about pumping in the oil field? I work for Eog, 9 on 5 off schedule. Home every night. I average 50-60 hours a week and I think they are starting guys off at 24 an hour. It's very stable. I'm out of the Dilley office but there are offices in Houston, San Antonio, Jourdanton and I think Gonzalez too.

I was in your shoes too. small town and got busted for having a few drinks from the boss at the bar I was bouncing at. Pretty chicken sh*t since they knew I worked there and have helped bust people dealing drugs etc but it is what it is. These days you can go to jail for having a few beers after work and considered under the influence. You may talk to some of the places that require a clean driving record and explain the situation. I pumped for EOG for 5 years before going to a different dept and you have a company vehicle and spend your life driving around. They brought me in and asked for some paperwork regarding the case and talked about it and they decided I was a good guy ina crappy situation. might be worth a shot-good luck sir

You might see if Air Liquide as any positions open in the Houston area, they usually do. They have air separation plants and some chemical down there. Your safety training will go a long way with them.
