Blog Fodder

Well, that was certainly interesting.......let me just get that out there first thing.

I'll start by saying it went well. It really did. Oh crap. Let's just start at the beginning, shall we?

Even with my "preparations" I got a late start. I was so damned tired I fell asleep between my post and when I needed to leave. But none the less, I got there in plenty of time. And yes, I did get my make-up on. :-)

I will say that this is the first time I've ever been interviewed in a hotel room with an unmade bed. Yeah, that was a bit disconcerting - to say the least.

But the 2 managers of this division are very nice guys. Seriously. They both have a great sense of humor and it's evident that they believe in what they are doing.

The first thing they said was that I am waaaayyyyy over qualified. They made sure I realized this is "down and dirty" sales. It's hittin' the pavement. Every day. Callin' on small shops. Walkin' in the mud.

I explained that I'm not afraid of work or dirt. I also told them what I loved best about what I do is the people I deal with. I like getting out there.

That's when they tell me about one of the guys I'll be calling on. He's a bounty hunter. Obsessed with cats. He has dozens. Oh yeah - this is allllll about the blog fodder - I'm tellin' you.

We talked for about an hour. Actually they talked. Tryin' to talk me into the job. We talked benefits. OUTSTANDING. We talked money. Not bad. We talked corporate structure, etc. etc. etc.

At the end of the interview they wanted to know how interested I am. I told them very. They will be calling the recruiter in the morning, after I've had a chance to talk with her.

The only thing I think that stands between me and an offer is the fact that they are afriad I'll be bored and leave.

Folks...good money, great hours, working from home AND blog fodder. Yeah - if they offer I'll take it.

So now we wait.............................

Oh and just so you know.....if THE company calls - yeah, I'm still interested. I'm desperate, not stupid.

When you saw the unmade bed, did you think this was some sort of "Hollywood casting couch" interview?

Hope you get the job!

They were just testing to see if she actually had all the "mattress knowledge" she listed on her resume :-D

I say you take T1G with you when you call on Kat the Bounty Hunter... he can play with the kitties while you talk business. *grin*
