I have been working for a "family owned" company for over 2 year now. Long story short at first it was great, A m-f 7-5 job. Well now over a year later & hanging in there with the company, a few weeks ago my boss tells me to call him before I come in because there might not be any work! I've given estimates on jobs, worked by myself & pretty much did A lot of his work. Out of the past 3 weeks I've worked maybe 6 days total & He knows I have a family to support with children & recently found out we're having another baby. While I've been out trying to do side work my wife has been putting in application's for me. She's been telling me I deserve a better job & one that appreciates a good employee. Well today I got a e-mail for a immediate job opening that she applied for. After a few emails & a phone call I start a new job first thing tomorrow! I called my old boss & asked if he heard anything of course he said no. So I'm out with the old & in with the new, I'm very excited & optimistic, especially with a bigger company, a pay increase& the need for a better opportunity! My point of this is if your experiencing something similar, don't give up, hang in there & if you look you will find a company that will value a good employee!!

Family first ...working for a family owned company is not fun. I have done it twice. No matter how good you are family will always be first. I wouldn't recommend it unless your family

Ahhh, yes. The dry and stoney path set before us can be hard to travel. But it's the only way to get to the job God has prepared you for! Congrats!!!
