    Looking for a job in Dallas

    Hey TX members,

    My wife and I are looking to move from Las Vegas and raise our kids in a better place. We will be coming to Dallas sometime in July (no date set yet). We have some friends that live in Rockwall and will be staying with them for a week as we scope things out. I am looking for work there and wanted to know if anyone could help me out. I spent over 10 years working in the Vegas hotels and for the last 5 years have been an electrician in Local 357 IBEW electrical union building many of the new properties here on the strip (Wynn, Palms, Ceasars Palace, MGM, Paris and City Center to name a few). However these are things I have done, they are not the only things I can do. I can do just about anything and I am easily trainable. So if there are opportunities in other fields, I am quite capable and willing to learn something new. I am aware the electrical union scale is half what I make now and there is a slow work picture for someone comeing from another local. Sometimes moving is NOT based on money, my family needs the change, and TX is the first choice for us to raise our kids and enjoy our family.

    Thanks

    Ian

    I can't help you out in regards to the job front but congratulations on making the decision to move. I know that it can be very stressful to make a big change like that. You may have luck posting on the DORBA site as they are Dallas specific.

    We moved from Los Angeles to San Antonio about a year ago, one reason being to raise our girls in a better place. It was a stressful 6 month process, but well worth it. My family is very happy here. I just miss the So Cal mountains. Anyway, just thought I would pass on some words of encouragement having successfully moved to TX. Good luck.

    Hi WingNutt,
    When you say 'working in the hotels'...what did you do?
    Do you have a college degree? Any management experience? The company my wife works for is hiring. PM me if you want.

    Texas lacks mountains but we have some decent trails and loads of good people. Hope you find what you're looking for.

    Hey Thanks,

    in the hotel industry I have worked as a Front Desk clerk, Front Desk supervisor, VIP rep, Room Reservations and Casino Customer Service. I have no hotel/hospitality oriented degrees but do have a great amount of experience in several hotel fields. The 10 years in the hotel industry as all spent at the Tropicana Resort. For the last five years I have been in the IBEW's electrical union apprenicship working as a construction electrician. This all pretty much sums up my last 15 years of employment.

    I am aware of the lack of MTN's there. Coming from Vegas where epic Bootleg Cayon and InterBike are as well as 3 great BMX tracks plus some of the other riding here and in nearby California, Utah and Moab....I will have some adjusting to do. I am hoping some Dual Slalom and 4X racing starts there. Neither needs much more than a medium size hill which I know exist there. I am also aware of the new DH trail, although its not like anything here at Bootleg, at least its something to ride. I have a new 4X bike being built and am entertaining the idea of a 29" single speed for the XC type stuff there.

    PM sent concerning work.

    I think a 29 ss would be great for most of our trails...I've been considering one myself, but, I've already got four bikes and, so far, can't convince the wife that I need five. Oh well.

    Get yourself and your family down here and I'll be glad to ride some trails with you.

    lol I understand the whole bike thing. I have 2 one off custom BMX bikes, another BMX in parts (just need a few things to get that one rolling), my Transition BottleRocket, the 4x bike being built as well as a few others. After the 4x is finished I want something for out there like a SS 29r or something and maybe a hardtail for trails and jumping.
