Why hasn't MetroTech responded?  It makes no sense.   

They may still be on summer vacations.

Did you tell Allison's dad that you have a job now?

He knows, her mom knows, and, of course, she knows.

Please post the job description, list of duties / tasks, activity expectations, overall goals for the position and describe the type of training you're getting.

It will take me a little time to get this all together, but I'll work on it and post it in the next few days.

Yep. Day 3 tomorrow.

Just for the record,  I don't think anybody here wants me to fail,  I just wish I could get all encouraging posts designed to help me in my job.   I don't need commentary or predictions of my failure.   That's just a very jerkish response.

J-Mann, of course you don't have to type up a long post.   There is absolutely nothing wrong here and nothing that I need a long advice on.   The job is going great,  there is nothing that would lead any sane person to believe I'm in trouble.  The forum just likes to hang onto every word I say and turn it negative and stop up their ears like lunatics to the real news.   Don't give into these pessimists.

You'd turn down sales advice, mentoring, coaching and motivation from someone who has led and coached dozens of salespeople?

Sales tips I'll accept,. I just won't accept questions or negative posts about my ability.

How about statistically-validated concerns about your ability? If you recall, two years ago I had you take an employment-screening survey to help you learn about your preferred work and communication styles. You told me the read-back I did for you was spot on. My aim isn't negativity, but if your qualitatively- and quantitatively-validated survey tells me the areas where you may struggle in a sales position, I'm going to tell you.

As long as it's meant solely to encourage me in my current position then I'll accept it.

Flo, I'll gladly accept recommendations on do's and dont's on the job as long as,  again,  it's not meant to discourage me in my job,

In sales jobs, if you don't sell, you get shown the door. This won't last long.

Hey, now, give me a chance before you start writing me off, please.  I do have talent, you know.

Bushie, is your boss a nice guy? Are you getting along with him? What's his first name?

He is a very nice guy.  I am getting along with him very well.  Because of Mondale, I am not going to divulge his name.

so bushie this job involves calling at&t customers and selling what exactly?

These are small business customers that already have AT&T service and yes I would be telemarketing to them trying to sell them products and services that will best enhance their business.  We are trying to increase their expenditure with us, but also offering products that will increase their revenue and grow their business.

I had the pay explained to me this way, and this should answer the legality that J-Mann brought up.  The base is $8.00/hr, but with an automatic $2.00/hr bonus if you work between 38-40 hours during the week.  If you miss between 2-10 hours, the bonus drops to $1.00/hr extra and there is no bonus if you miss more than 10 hours in the week.  On top of the attendance bonus are sales bonuses that can add up to as much as an additional $6.00/hr for the entire pay period.  So, as long as I show up everyday, I am guaranteed $10.00/hr, but could make up to $16.00/hr.  That's not including all the sales games they have.  AT&T likes to throw money around.

It's been quite a busy day today at work.  I'm learning a lot about my job today and how to do it.  I must say I'm quite pleased with what I'm learning today.  I have 5 days left in the classroom.

Are the people you're working with clean and articulate?

Yes, they are.  Great people, too.

You have to cling to God because you're working with black people?

No,  I said I have to cling to God in everything regardless of who I work for.   I was just stating the demographics of the class.

Why though?  It didn't have anything to do with what was being discussed.

It sounds it's really bothering you that there are more black people than white people there. Do you feel outnumbered? Is it making you nervous?

You're making a mountain out of a mole hill.  Drop it,  immediately.

If Bushie hates being around black people then why did he go to Kenya? Does he only like black people when they're children?

Huh

I never said I hate being around black people.

What are you talking about Duke?  Things are great so far.   I do have to cling to God no matter what.  I have nothing against this at all,  but in my class there are 9 blacks and 4 whites.  African Americans are quite prevalent in that part of Tulsa.  I don't mind it at all,  but it is an interesting fact in white Oklahoma.

I have been at this job for one full week.   Other than the first three hours of Day 1, I have had no worries or apprehensions about this job.   It may not be my dream job,  but it is still a good job and one I think I will enjoy.  I really don't think I'm in this job by accident.   There is a reason I'm here.  Maybe God saw trouble in the other jobs I applied for.   It's possible this may be a better fit for me than even some of the CAD jobs.  Good knows my skill set and He is not going to put me in a job to see me fail.  I am truly blessed.

You said that Allison is losing weight. What kind of diet is she doing?

Working out, salad, water.   She eats other things,  but she has always liked salad and she drinks water quite a bit.   She just recently started working out.

How's Allison doing? When do you plan on popping the big question?

She's doing well.  I plan to ask sometime in August or maybe September.

I just e-mailed my instructor again asking him why I haven't gotten the certificate, if I did indeed complete the course, and why I have been turned down for job after job after job.
