The new job is good. The things I was afraid of turned out to be non-existent. For example, I worried that I wouldn’t get breaks, then I would get too hungry, and screech at a customer – but nobody oversees my breaks. I can take them whenever I want. I did notice that no-one else took a proper break, in the breakroom, for 30 minutes straight – but I sure as hell will be. (PS. There is no hell.) Every employee (and there aren’t many) has worked there less than 9 months. The entire crew is brand spanking new, so I am not so far behind. Next, I need to start memorizing inventory and stats about features and dimensions. (We sell appliances: refrigerators, ovens, washing machines, treadmills, tractors, and I don’t even know what else.) But sales is sales. I could do well here if they don’t pull any more fast ones on me. During the interview, boss said pay would be so many dollars an hour plus commissions, but it turned out to be 75 cents per hour less. I lost $6,000 a year before I even clocked in. On the plus side, I get commissions for practically everything. Once I learn the details of the systems, believe you me I will be working them! The best part of the job is that there is negligible supervision. As long as I produce sales, it seems no-one will be looking over my shoulders or bullying me. If I make what they said I will make, it will be fine. So cheers to the successful completion of day one at my first full-time job in 24 months!
