    I have a clean driving record. Would you mind overlooking the other criteria?

    Too bad that such an interesting and exciting job has to be in the wrong part of the US. Oh well, I'm probably well past the hiring age limit anyhow. I'm sure the LOML would be thrilled for me to take a job like this though just to get me out from underfoot again.

    Hi Charles,

    I already have a day job, but just wanted to jump in and welcome you to FWW. I hope you are able to visit and add some of your knowledge here from time to time.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!

    I also hope this is within guidelines and hope some member can either benefit from this opportunity or refer a friend to help out. I would love the opportunity as a side job but am in SoCal.

    P.s. Glad to see you. Your input has always been of value elsewhere and we are lucky to have you visiting.

    I wish you the best of luck in your search. Please be patient in your search and get the right candidate to represent your quality Freud products. There is nothing worse than seeing a poorly prepared/educated demonstrator or one with unsafe woodworking habits.

    Best of luck,

    Sounds like they'er looking for a CDL pro that happens to know something about woodworking and there is nothing wrong about this. This would be a tough job for anyone with a family. My job requires lots of travel, mostly by air but, travel is still travel and after a few months the "newness" of a high travel job wears off. Soon you tire of eating every meal out, sleeping in a rented bed and not having any personal private space. All this said, for someone this is the perfect opportunity and I wish them the best.
