We are swamped with work and need to hire a good all around machinist. Two top applicants we have recieved applications from work for 2 different customers of ours. We make tooling fixtures and gages for them, customers make products using our tooling. Applicants have done both tooling and production machining (currently running production at our customers facilities). I don't want to shoot myself in the foot with my customers, but these guys are looking to change jobs so I am on the fence about interviewing / hiring them. Good machinist are hard to find, so are customers. Anyone been down this road before?
