Looking for a new full time job, any ideas ?

I have been working for the same company for the last 2 years (with a brief job working at a hot rod shop in there--didn't get paid the last 5 weeks I worked there so I went back to what I was doing) and I'm not going anywhere.

I currently work for a company that has a couple of DBA's, the main "money maker" being commercial restaurant kitchen repair, fabrication, etc. We do refrigeration seals/gaskets, stainless steel and aluminum fabrication, stainless steel on-site TIG welding, and on the side we do automotive repair, mainly old cars, but will work on just about anything.

I have experience with TIG welding, fabrication, automotive, pinstriping, some painting. I'm a quick learner and hard worker, have a very likable personality, and I don't drink, don't smoke, and don't do drugs.

Does anyone have any leads on any jobs that I can start out making decent money ? I have a family and can't afford to start out on the bottom making no money. Of course, what I make now would be no money to some of the people on here.

I just don't feel like I'm being paid what I'm worth to do everything I do where I'm at right now.

I live in Allen, and work in Plano, currently.

Man, everyone in the restaurant industry is struggling right now. I could throw out a few companies that do the same type of work as what you've been doing, but don't have any idea what they pay.

Hagar Restaurant Supply
GCS, Ecolab
ServiceWorks
Ralph Wright Refrigeration (mainly walk in refrigeration, upright, some HVAC)
Refrigerated Specalists, Inc
Cooking Equipment Specialists

Yeah man, I know. In '08 we were rolling. I was making pretty good money. When the economy went to shit, we almost folded.

I'm not even necessarily looking for something in the same industry. I don't have to work in restaurant service. I can do other things. Just need to figure out where to go from here. I've got to get my foot in the door somewhere and it'll be all down hill from there.
