Default Anyone hiring?

Anyone hiring around Fort Worth, Hurst area? I have been in the golf industry as a golf professional for most of my career and needed a change. I got out because I didn't want to work every single Saturday and Sunday and every holiday and be able to spend more time with my family. Thanks all.

Just about every PD in the metroplex is hiring. It’s a good gig most of the time.

Seems like everybody is hiring everywhere for everything. I am a landlord and I can't find construction people anywhere.

I'm considering getting into construction. Contractors are able to name their price AND tell you to get on a waiting list.

IMO now is the time to change careers, if you are so inclined. If you want weekends off I wouldn't get into retail or emergency services.

Construction is growing, and will continue to trend for several years according to most analysts.

Skilled tradesmen are in demand. Most specifically in the MEP trades. As demand increases and the labor pool decreases, compensation will continue to rise.

Get into a trade school, and and it will accelerate your career.

I work in the petrochemical industry in Southeast Texas. There's lots of expansion and hiring going on right now. The money is great, but if you're looking for more time with your family, this probably isn't for you.
