Default so, i just signed the papers for a new job...

as of tomorrow, i am putting in my 2 weeks at the goodwill. ill be leaving on the 4th. after much negotiation i turned a 25 hour job into a promised 40 hour job at advance. still techinically part time though, so im apprehensive about that........ leaving a full time for a part time. but, it pays more and obviously fits my interests better than pricing and receiving donations...

aside from that, from what i observed in the 2 or so hours i was there today, it seems like much less work for more pay. who can complain about that??? dude was like we are having a rush right now.... there were about 8 people in the store. where i work currently, we have 2,000 plus customer days with about 300+ donations. and i am expected to price 850 things in my 8 hour shift all while taking donations. this will be a walk in the friggin park. lol.

anyways i just wanted to let y'all know. ill probably be MIA for a bit, as i scheduled my training on my off days at the 'will.

same distance... just down the street from work. bout 30 miles. which is why i was worried about having less hours. part time retail means still 5-6 days just less hours each day. same drive, less money..

Congratulations Jason, it sure sounds like a more entertaining job, I'd love to do something like that, or maybe work even at Walmart'* TLE, just to get my foot in the door for something bigger of course, I'd love to get ASE certified and work in a real garage, or for a stealership, as long as the pay is good.
Have to work our way up that ladder man.
Hope you enjoy the job, and the pay!

Walmart TLE is a good place to start. I started almost a year ago, and I still enjoy the work. Winter/summer tire season is hectic here though. We usually book weeks in advance, and don't take any extra work long after the garage opens some days (5 appointments, and usually 6-8 walk-ins..only two techs).

Jason,

Congrats on your new job. I sense you will find it much more interesting and mind challenging than Goodwill.
