So it went well.

Thank you for those of you sending positive wishes my way about the interview, it seemed to work. I think I did pretty good on the interview. It started off with me telling them about my accident while scouting out the building and that 4 days in Canada and I get hit from behind. One of the ladies said, ‘Welcome to Canada.’, which was pretty funny. Before the interview started we talked a little about the drive we had coming from California and the job market in the US. They really could not believe its as bad as it is, 80% of people looking for work will not find it. It was pretty shocking to them.

Then they started asking me questions in turn, each reading from the same sheets and writing down my answers. I only messed up one answer and that was asking me about current promotions they have going. My answer to that was, ‘I honestly do now know right now, but I can certainly see why the training is 6 weeks full time.’. But, I did answer everything else, and on some of the answers I made them laugh a good bit. They asked what I had over other applicants and I said that I assumed I was one of the oldest applicants and as such my ‘drama’ days are over. They laughed at that answer and my ‘inside’ source when I told her that said that was a great answer. She seemed to think I did pretty well. I hope so. But, we’ll see. I’m not going to hope too much in case I get disappointed. I’ll find out in a week and a half if I got the job or not.

The other good news is that I was able to pick up a really good monitor for a really good price today, so I’m pretty happy about that. My computer is now up and running. Although I still do not have a lot of time to get on it, it is nice to have it back.

Ares has settled down a bit although he is now getting pushy about his boundaries. He doesn’t like staying in the basement at all, but my mother said if he stays at the landing at the top of the stairs that's ok. Plus her husband, who is not overly happy about a dog in the house, has been petting him and it looks as though they’ve been doing a small bit of bonding. So that's good too.

Overall. Not a sucky day.

  2. AUGH! I LOATHE team interviews...awful, AWFUL inventions of someone who is pure evil.
