Default Possible new job

Well, I have an interview tomorrow for a Tier 2 Tech Support job with comcast cable. If I get it, I'll be making 15.75 an hour plus bonuses based on performance, with lots of overtime available. If I do get the job, I'll be planning on working around 60 hours a week after training, on top of my school every day. I will have no social life, but it will well be worth it. Wish me luck everyone, and if anyone else has ever worked for comcast, I wouldn't mind hearing opinions about how the company treats its employees.

You know, money is nice, but quality of life is a hell of a lot more important. I've had jobs where I made a lot of money, but worked so many hours I never had time to enjoy it. I guess it'* ok as long as it'* not a long term thing....but, good luck to you!

As far as the pay is concerned... You have to remember, not only am I in california, but I'm close to silicon valley. Anything even remotely tech related pays pretty well. And I used to work a rather similar schedule when I was a TSR for Dish network, but I only made 9.75/hr.

Technical Support Representative. But now that you mention it...a portion of their job IS typical up-selling or cross-selling tech support customers.

What kind of schooling do you need for that job, if any? I might consider it myself; I gotta get out of retail
