master-tech at pep boys. still working for now ( knock on wood ) but things dont look good, getting rough to make a living around here, no one wants to spend any money, and cars are the last thing they want to spend it on right now.. and was just told the other day and again at hybrid class that i went to today, that if they dont turn a profit by the end of the year we may be no more.. share holders have spoken, this could be the end..

I'm a IT site manager at a paper mill and right now our back log is only about 3 days most times we need it about 10 - 20 days out.
Plus right now we are having QC problems and have pissed off some of our good/big customers.

Plus we just got a 300K OSHA charge :-(
