littlecanoe Amazon seems to be a solid company to work for. There is a distribution center in Campbellsville KY. A lot of people in that area work there. Picking packages can be strenuous and requires a LOT of daily walking. They guy that bought my place earlier this year took a position there in management. He loves it. I believe that they are a no nonsense company when in comes to expectations concerning work.

If amazon is in your crosshairs you may want to consider Indiana near Cincinnati. Amazon is building an air hub adjacent to the airport in northern KY. It is their first and is a HUGE facility. Iím not sure about the open date.

phatgemi My .02 worth coming from retired military also. I could have stayed in government service had I been willing to work inside the beltway or in some godforsaken country. I decided to try something new. Ended up in completely different direction working hospital security at large hospital for 22 years. Easily worked up to supervisory level within few years. Truly enjoyed the work. Now in second retirement, I decided to deliver car parts two days a week for something to do. (besides hunting, etc, etc). Sounds like you have enough on the ball to not have any problem at all getting into the civilian world. The key thing to remember is that if you find a job you like, you'll never work a day in your life!

Hey there! Is that one out there by the Charlestown Ammo Plant or is there another one in Jeff? I forget where they draw the city limits lines.

Thanks, Dinny

Thanks, Dinny
Been retired from military 24 years so I will give you some free advice. Don't be like other retired military people sweep the floors even if the pay not right and work your way up. Only been out of work 3 weeks in the 24 years.
