This is kind of funny! Well some of the comment back at least. Well unless you sign a contract or fill out tax forms, you are not actually hired. If I can tell anyone anything, it is GET IT IN BLACK AND WHITE!! Always. Thank you Uncle Sam for teaching me this. What I don't like is when people try to make it seem like bad things only happen on the island. It happens all over the world people. Plus for who said local businesses do that, I do not agree. Most Island businesses that are owned by non locals do that 🙂

Sorry about your situation, there are lots of TALENTED mechanics down here. Like big companies, they hire from all over. This sounds like a case of misunderstanding here. It happens when there is communication to be passed back and forth. Did anyone think about sending the tools in two or three shipments? Would that have helped?

I did GET IT IN BLACK AND WHITE. There was no misunderstanding. They expected me to ship $30,000.00 worth of tools and equipment without insurance at the last minute and take the cheap way out. What's to misunderstand?

P.S. Every job I have ever applied for and was hired for did not require me to fill out tax forms etc. until I was there and working a few days at least.

Bring your own tools, on your own dime and you can easily get a job.

In that length of time you could have sent these oh so valuable tools down one by one - mail/// fed ex or any number of Insured Shippers.

Really. Send each individual wrench, screwdriver. socket, ratchet etc. by mail or Fedex. All $30,000.00 and 2k pounds worth? I guess then I"ll put a 6ft. wide x 6ft tall toolbox in an envelope too. Maybe I should Fedex my car too.

LOL...people always slow down or stop to watch a train wreck, car wreck, fight, catfight, etc... Doesn't mean anyone's point is valid. Stop whining and move on with your life. Come or don't come. But if you have no plans to come then you are really wasting your time by arguing with a relocation board. We've all told you what you should have or should do. You do not want to do that so move on.
