You can have my job, Or just say you worked for me and put me down on your resume as a contact. My company has a pretty good reputation for good, thorough employees. I would be happy to lie. :boogie:

Store hasn't made enough in two years to pay me. This is a part-time gig, and my wife, who's a teacher, can work in the store for free this summer.

Hey, I hope I catch you before you go...
I work at a major call center for a huge insurance company.
The bussword is "value" use it often in your interview, ie "I am very good at instilling a sense of value in the product", "I can sell the value of the procuct", etc.
This is the new trend in consumer goods, just using the word will keep you in their heads. I know this will help and let us know how it goes.

man i loved and hated my time in the call center. my time was for a pager company.

one guy threatened to kill me when his girl found out he was using a pager she was paying for to cheat on him, so she cut it off and i wouldn't turn it back on because it was her account, not his.

on the other hand - remember when dick morris was caught sucking a hooker's toes? later that day guy next to me gets a call, 30 seconds later stands up and yells " I just cancelled dick morris's pager"

I loved and hated my call center time also.

I hated getting yelled at by assholes that thought it was wrong for the satellite company to actually expect them to pay for their shit.

I loved that the call center was chock full of college age women and I got laid a lot.

Good luck on the interview. Hopefully this will be temporary and business will pick up to allow you to quit. But I don't think this is unusual for new businesses, it takes time to build up.

Keep your head up!

You know...I just thought of this, but you should get your wife to take a second job during the summer. (I'm sure that would go over well.) :scared: Um...don't mention it was my idea.

I "passed" my "test", and have been asked back for an interview later today. We'll see how it goes...
