Testing turned to Choices

Well, after three interviews this week it looks like I might have my choice as to where I want to work. Strangely enough, the company I was determined I didn't want to work for, due to weekends, is the one that is offering the best money and schedule. I would be working 36-40 hours a week, usually 7-8 hour shifts per day and making quite a bit doing so. Plus the store is really close to our house so there isn't any commuting involved. I have a second interview with the store manager today to discuss the details of the position.

The other company is in Tualitin, about 22 mi. from our house. It's a 8-5 mon-fri job, however because of the distance I would be gone from 7a.m. - 6:30 p.m. at night. It's a cabinet job that doesn't sound like it will be offering good money. I am, however, the top candidate for the position out of 12 so far. They will be calling me to schedule a second interview at the end of this week.

The final company sounds overwhelming. It's a commercial furniture dealer who specializes in office design. It would also be a mon-fri 8-5 job. However, it's located in the middle of downtown which means I would have to take the bus or drive and park. Fortunately the company gives their employees bus passes for free, however the bus ride from our house would be over an hour one way. So, again I would leave at 6:30 or 7 and be home around the same time at night.

So far I have decided the first choice sounds best. It just seems like a much more relaxed envrionment and I would have the potential to make a lot of money. Much more than I have been making or would make with a standard salaried job. Basically I have to decided between traveling for hours or working weekends. As of now, the weekends seem to be the lesser of the two evils. I will let you know when I find out more about the jobs! God Bless!
