Hello again, Yes it did seem odd to me that I was not granted access or even a tour of the facilities. I got my start in not far from the "shop" in North Carolina working for the airlines. A few classes and years later I landed in Indianapolis working for a Composite Parts manufacturer, and then onto the work staff of a leading, at the time, CART operation. Cart folds, and I end up working for the same boss but now it is in Indy Cars.

A return to North Carolina, and to my family, would have been a match made in heaven! However, it was not meant to be, as USF1 may be a Formula One team, they just are not being professional about hiring actual workers. continued in next post.

My final impression is this, and I will be done.

USF1 seems to have started out with all the good intentions in the world. They hired headhunters to find talent, organized interviews with said talent. And when the times started getting rough, instead of canceling or postponing the interviews, they went along with them all.

Imagine what would happen, what would be the message sent, if they canceled all of the interviews......the inevitable cat would be let out of the bag. I just wish I would have been spared of all of this, I even went house hunting during my time there, I guess it was too good to be true.
