alright, so i had a job interview today. the temp agency set it up for me. and i didn't tell you guys (LOL, i call you guys "you guys") because i was like "OK IF I DON'T TELL ANYONE ABOUT THE INTERVIEW AND THEN I DON'T GET THE JOB, I WON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN MYSELF." so i just kept quiet about it. BUT then, the interview was just so....like, stupidly horrible that i just had to tell:
i walked in. (wearing michael kors wide leg linen slacks, a cap-sleeve white blouse and a knit brown vest. hair pulled nicely into a low pony. skull bracelet removed for interview.
and the receptionist was wearing an oversized sweatshirt and jeans. and had dusty fake sunflowers on her desk. and had a giant oriental fan hanging on the wall. and the building was dingy and had muck in the corners. and there weren't any decorations or decor (aside from the sunflowers and the fan). and half the desks were empty. then the lady came out to take me back and interview me. and she was wearing jeans and a crusty top and had a smoker's voice. and she had a scrunchie on her wrist. and this is how she described the job to me:
"high-stress, high-volume job, where you'll be on the phone and e-mailing most of the day. you will be dealing with conflict and angry customers on a daily basis, and you will be working with software that is very frustrating to use. oh, and the pay is $11.50/hr."
OH YES THAT SOUNDS LIKE A DREAM SIGN ME UP
are you kidding me?!?!?!
i mean, i know beggars can't be choosers, but i. mean. COME. ON. that is absolutely NOT acceptable. at all. FUDGE to the NO i will not take that job.
and she said she had a bunch more people to interview. i absolutely do not want the job even though i acted like i did. i'm hoping that she won't hire me because i looked too....oh i don't know, REFINED and CLEAN to work there.
is it too much to ask for a $200/hr job where i type letters and get coffee for some fat CEO who gives me TJ Maxx giftcards for my birthday?!?!?!?!
