I’ve always wanted to move out of East Texas and since I’m between jobs like many other people, I decided this would be a good time. I decided to shoot for DFW and have put in dozens of resumes. I hardly heard back from any of them until Wednesday which seemed like a lucky day.
I interviewed for one job but was told today I didn’t get it. I think the guy got the impression I only wanted to do one specific thing all day, which wasn’t true. Oh well. Another really liked my resume but didn’t have any positions currently. He said things seem to be picking up so I may be hearing from him soon. Here’s hoping…
The one that really bothers me, they really seemed to like me and it seemed like a good deal… until they said they often work up to 14 hours a day, 7 days a week. They don’t work all day on Saturdays and Sundays but it’s still a lot of hours. Now I’m not trying to be picky and I don’t mind some overtime but damn. As much as I want to get my foot in the door there, I know I’d really be hating life after a week of that. So when they called today, I told them I had found another job.
I just needed to vent about it. It’s back to the drawing board for now. I hope not too many people complain that I should be less picky. I think I’d rather live in my car than work almost every waking hour though.
