Default I Got a New Job!!!

Sigh, I'm at a breaking point with my McJob now. I'm ready to ust QUIT right now. But I need the income still. So I went and put a bunch of applications in at:

GameStop
Menards
Shopko (online)
GameCrazy (online)

I was going to put an app at the Pontiac Dealership, But they told they've been BOUGHT out by Finley GMC. So I'm holding off till about 10 days.

Taylor, They're closed still on holiday.

Wal-mart, App is still valid from my last app input.

Still Finding other places that isn't food service.

PLEASE wish me luck.

Also from McDiddyLand McRibs end next week and sweet tea has been started after a delay.

Dude, I quit my job today and I don't have any regrets. I know that there are plenty of jobs out there right now (in my area, at least), and I can always do some computer work if I don't get one soon enough. If ya gotta do it, do it. Just do it before you get fired, because that can be a real PITA. Oh yeah, stay out of retail, I learned my lesson and I'm passing it on to you, young grasshopper...

(I'm not one to quit my job like that, btw, I did it after a flagrant display of abuse during black friday today. 4 of my other co-workers and I walked out at the same time. It'* a lot more than that, but I really don't want to tell the story right now.)

^^ Ouch

Anyhow, I also applied at www.westathome.com

Looks like a West job at my own house/computer.

Interesting to say the least.

If it were me, I wouldn't quit until I had another job lined up.
Maybe take a leave of absence for a few weeks....months.

Sounds like a good plan.

Good luck in your job search.

Are you perusing the West thing?

I worked in a site for about 2 1/2 years and hated it.
But, I heard the at home deal is pretty decent.

Take it from a former West employee, the West At Home program sucks. It'* just telemarketing from your home computer. I do highly recommend working at one of their call centers though, the pay is a lot better and it'* easy to get promoted.
