My paycheck is actually higher than what I expected.

I will call and find out info on post office jobs tonight.

I feel so much better this morning and am ready to go to work today. Whatever I had was brutal, but thankfully only lasted 24 hours. I will leave here at 7:20 this morning. I should be getting my first paycheck just before Noon and I will deposit it right after work since the bank is on my way home.
No direct deposit? Do you work in 1983?

Due to the high turnover rate, they do not offer direct deposit to peons like me.  Only the upper management get direct deposit.  Direct deposit was getting too expensive for the company.

This sounds so shady. 5 people have already "quit" after a few days of sitting around and talking about sports and cooking?

3 people have apparently quit because they weren't understanding the material that we did go over the first few days of class.

Or did 3 people quit because they realized it was a scam??

Since you think you are getting paid tomorrow, do you know if it is straight salary or a draw yet?

It's not a scam and is not a draw system.  What will happen is I will compete against the other 11 agents.  The top 5% will get $6.00/hr more than the base.  The next 5%, $5.00;  then it goes down from there.  The top 70% will get at least 25 cents an hour additional.  Only the bottom 30% won't get anything.


Bushie, can yo please pm myself J-Mann, Grumps and a few others the name of this company, so we can do some research??

Excited to get on the phones and telemarket to people?

Yes, and excited to potentially be padding my paycheck!

I don't care what anybody says, I'm really looking forward to this job.  Of course, I will look for a CAD job, but this will be a fun job while I have it.

Bushie in a competitive sales environment... Jebus.

It'll be quite fun, I believe.

Do you understand the material? It can't be that hard, can it?

I understand it quite well and no its not difficult.

Has training made any mention of quotas for the month?

None. I'll ask tomorrow to make sure, but I haven't heard of any.

Oh, and only half the class decided to show up today...

You say that as if it is some sort of justification for you missing. In 2 months (if that), it won't really matter that Billy Sue had as many call offs as you, because the end result will be that both you and Billy Sue are unemployed.

I'm not saying this as a matter of self-justification, or maybe I am.  Missing 3/4 of a day is certainly missing 2 days or more.   Everyone there has at least 1.5 missed days, and in some cases 2-3 full days.  Though not confirmed, I believe three ladies have quit by missing 5 days already.  I certainly don't want to miss any more, but I'm not in any danger at the present time.

I walk into an ESPN, Cooking channel, UFC discussion.  We've done nothing since I've been here...

WTF kind of job is this?  Seriously, will you even get a paycheck?

I'll get paycheck #1 tomorrow.  My training class is kind of stuck right now.  We have covered all the training material, but we won't get all of our logins until the end of this week, meaning we won't get on the phones until next Monday, most likely.  So, right now, the trainer has to scrounge for stuff to do.  This leads to most of the day goofing off.  Sometimes we role-play or side-jack with some of the inbound agents, but that doesn't help a whole lot because we will be exclusively outbound at least to start with.  I would complain, but it is free money that I'm making.  I wish there were more material we could go over, but we used all that up by the middle of last week.

Congrats on making it with enough time to start up your computer, take a bathroom break, and go home.

2 1/2 hours is better than nothing.  My trainer did crack a genuine smile when I walked in.  I probably could have stayed out all day and it wouldn't have affected anything, but I wanted to at least make an appearance.  I feel better just by being here.

I'm at work now.  I was delayed an hour from what I wanted, but I made it in at 14:30.  I still don't feel well, but I figure I should make an appearance.  My trainer caught me up on things and I'm fine in my attendance.

In fact, I'm going to go on in to work this afternoon and get at least 3 1/2 hours of work in today.  That will at least help my August 7 paycheck a little bit.

The funny thing is out of the 13 people in my training class, nobody and I mean nobody has perfect attendance.  Everybody has missed at least one day.  Some of them have missed two or more.  Now, I think two or three of them have quit, but I definitely have company in the non-perfect attendance crowd.

aka Bushie quit

Are you still taking the vitamins?

I haven't quit and I have every intention of going in tomorrow and carrying on like nothing happened.  If they want to do away with me then that is their prerogative.  They will have to let me go, I will not leave on my own.  I'll just have to wait and see what happens when I go in tomorrow.

Yes, I am still taking the vitamins.  I've taken them every day since last Tuesday except yesterday.

I did stay home today because my stomach ache and gagging last night turned into a full night of throwing up (mostly dry heaves) plus a nasty cocktail of symptoms.  My body was spent when I woke up at 6:00 this morning and it felt like I had not slept all night, even though I had been in bed since 21:15 minus the times I was anchored on or over the john.  I called in just before 7:00 and went back to bed and didn't get up again until almost 10:30.  I'm starting to get better, I think, just now down to a severe headache, but I'm still going to take the rest of the day off and go in tomorrow.  If this affects my job then so be it.

Whatever it is,  I'm going to go to bed to get my body in a horizontal position.  I have to try to go tomorrow.  My job is to important to let it get torpedoed by a silly stomach virus.

Does anyone know if travelers diarrhea is contagious?  My aunt came down with it coming back from Spain last week and just got over it.  I was around her all day Saturday and for an hour today.  Now,  I've been gagging all day at nearly every scent.  I'm not in pain at this time and I haven't thrown up yet, but I've been close.

Unlikely. A more-likely reason for your sensitive gag reflex is your aunt regaling you with stories of her traveler's diarrhea.

add to my gagging minor cramping and bowel movements

I made it home to Tulsa about 14:30 this afternoon.  I had a fun weekend with the family, but now it is time to settle into a Sunday evening and get ready for Week 3 of work.  Work night #9 begins in 45 minutes.
