The job annoucement will usely state how long the job should last, give or take two weeks. They will want you to stay until the job is completed.
If you want short jobs then tell them up front.
One thing that usely happens with new people is that they thing the job is a lot of travel. When its not they get disapointed.
Last year I started in the middle of March going to Deaton, Tx, then mineral wells, weatherford, tx and then to Albany, Al and finishing in Jackson, Ms in Late October.
This year Breckenridge and Graham, Tx, now in Austin, July back to Mineral Wells and weatherford. Then we'll see what else is open.
Would like to go east to the Carolinia's for short job. That way I can that my coach to the factory for service and visit my dads grave in SC. If no job comes open that interest me, then home until next March.
I have and will continue my needs and plans with the company, and hopefully their job match both our needs. All subject to change with alittle give an take.

In December, I decided it would be interesting for a variety of reasons. I submitted an application of interest. I didn't hear anything, and assumed they were not interested.
However, today, I recieved a call from Mr. Cullin Broome regarding the application I sent.
After being retired for almost 9 years, I am seriously considering going to work for Southern Cross, assuming the interest is mutual. Interview, training location, assignments, etc.
The only issue I have any concern about at this stage, is state income tax issues when working in an income tax state. I receive a comfortable annuity, and concerned whether it makes sense to work in an income tax state. I am currently a Florida resident (no state income tax).
Can anyone recommend a tax preparer that can provide sound advice; And/Or, does anyone else fit into this type of situation?

Bob said Paul was training with him in Salt Lake right now, so not sure about Round Rock.
B'ham is not unlike Knoxville, just a little hotter a little longer. And, as you mentioned, more tornados. (whoopee!)
Chuck's dad just passed away suddenly about a month ago. It is probably best that we weren't assigned too far from home at this time. That way, if Chuck needs to go home to help out his mom, he won't have far to go. It is also close enough for him to go home on the weekends if need be for the same reason.
Things work out for the best sometimes. While B'ham wasn't our first choice, it is probably the best choice right now. It makes Chuck feel better about leaving his mom, knowing he is only a 4 1/2 hour drive away should she need him.

Look forward to meeting you on 3/4.
Have a safe trip.
Bob, looks like SCC tries to be flexible. As you say the company is in business for a reason. I get the impression that they will be easy to work with, and my personal thoughts are, I take the job, I'll go where asked, if possible. Looking forward to a lot of different experiences in differing locations.
SCC seems like a company I want to work for, not have to. My impression is that it will be a rewarding and very mutually beneficial working relationship.
Good Luck on your travels.

Thanks for the info. Couple of questions. Do you travel home on weekends, non paid I am sure if the answer is yes, if an assingment last for 3-5 months, do you have to stay on that job till finished, or can you take one closer to home?

I'll start off work in Breckenridge, Graham, Weatherford and Mineral Wells, Texas for Texas Gas. Then I'll go maybe to Denton, Tx or somewhere else. I 'll work untill the end of October.
Southern Cross is a good company to work with. Twice last ( 1 week and a month) year I had to leave a job because of family matters. No problem, told me to give them a call when I went back to job. If the job had a time requirement SCC would have sent a replacement.
When assignments come out an you don't want to work in that area, no problem they call someone else. You don't go to bottom of list. After you have worked for them a while SCC knows which areas you prefer. I usally like to work in Tx, MS, GA, and AL.
Send me a email if you want any more information, you can also go to the beginning of this thread and read thru it. It will answer most of your question.

They are quite expensive and it would take a whole lot of gas line inspecting to pay for one.
