If that supervisor knew you like we know you, you'd be on the job tomorrow, CossieMan.

...and he'd be asking you to redesign the company uniform with something a little more...


Best of luck, mi amigo!

I work for the company in question that Dwain is hoping to get on with. As a longtime lurker here on ST I am already familiar with him and as far as I'm concerned endorsements from the TacoStand should be more than enough to hire him on the spot.

Unfortunately just as I was nearing the end of my probationary period as the Las Vegas supervisor I managed to give myself a couple of different black eyes (Apparently sleeping with one of the residents at one of the luxury high rises that we work on is frowned upon by my company. Although to be fair, I am recently divorced and new to Vegas, the girl was 10 years younger than me and she made the first move, and I didn't want to be rude to someone who is used to getting what they want.) and I do not currently have the authority to hire people.

Getting back to the point though...Dwain needs your help! I'm pretty sure my boss has written Dwain off on account of his age so some badass and credible references would really go a long ways towards helping the cause.

We all know that Dwain is safe in the vertical plane and that he can wash windows with the best of them. What we need is someone (who preferably works in the Rope Access Industry) who can assure my boss that Dwain is tough enough and fit enough to work circles around guys half his age.

Thanks in advance,

Hire the man at will.

I am Sam,, To OLD?? He still cranks hard rock routes a thousand feet high in the red rocks. Tell the boss hiring to consider that, and the fact that he is MATURE, will be on time day in day out and accomplish with excellent results any damm task he dares assign him.. Rope access safety>??? Who do you think trained those industries?? Guys like Dan Osman, Climber that is who..

Dwain is a VERY experienced ans still quite active climber with rope skills light years ahead of that accesss industry. Experience is smart and smart people hire experienced. Cosmic is experienced in both heights and windows. With the maturity to perform above expectations because that is his normal routine.
