…of a quandary.
Get this phone call today.
People wanting me to come for an interview.
Telling me to dress professionally – as if I won’t!
That was the first sign of something fishy.
He gave me a whole list of different jobs they’re interviewing for – second sign. Am I wrong in saying that you pick a specific candidate for a specific job? Or are they going through the lists of desperate people on the job sites and picking the most likely ones?
Sends me the address, in Northcliff somewhere, but I still don’t know the name of the company. Third sign.
One of the first questions he asks me is if I have my own transport – fourth sign.
Now, I’m not in a position to turn down any kind of job offer. But am I really going to just take the first thing that comes along, if it does not look like it’s going to be worth it? If they don’t give any benefits, pay only a small basic salary, make me use my own personal car for their gain, and pay me just commission? This is the kind of feeling I get from this phone call. And as much as I need employment, I’m not prepared to put myself in an untenable position ever again.
My gut feel is slightly less than enthusiastic. Then again, I’m not certain why I’m felling like this. Do I want to stay at home? Am I prepared to do whatever it takes to find employment? Or should I look out for myself one way or the other?
I’ll go to the interview tomorrow.
But I’m not going to let them spin me a story, and believe it just because I’m borderline desperate.
Just thought I’d get it out on the ether.
I’ll be sure to update you once I have more details…
