    Like the thread title says,I found a job got it pretty simply too.I'm registered with Today's Staffing,so I simply called and said I was interested in the position.And less then a week later I'm given the details :rock  That's how an gency should work IMO

    Okay it may be temporary,but still it counts as work :D 

    Besides if you take into account the normal probation aren't most jobs temporary at first?And you know what they say about temp jobs,there's like a 50% chance it'll be permanent.

    Even better,with this job my stress is DEcreased for the moment and I can get back into weightlifting.I miss the feeling of tight shirts;) 

    And if I marshal my funds correctly I can quiet possibly go to BotCon '06 in September which would be equally cool :D

    The staffing firm's client was looking for 45 people so I figured why not :D

    In short, you work at a call center.

    Better than Burger King, which part of me almost expected :D

    *Shakes head*

    Oddly enough no,which really surprises me.I spoke to the Housekeeping manager.He said he had me meet with People Resources BECAUSE he thought I'd be good for the job.And the decision power is in her hands not his

    But she's never returned my messages(I've tried to talk to her 2-3 time)so I said to myself "Forget it" I just consider that hotel job a lost cause :redface2:

    Seems like everyone here is doing that nowadays. Sooner or later Jux will have real-life power over a 2005 member.

    That's a shame about the hotel gig. Given your personality, I figure you'd be a shoe-in. But the call center is still good. As they say, when one door closes, another one opens.

    Well at least you're working, not like those illegals who come here and refuse to work and collect health care somehow that we pay for.
