Think I got this new job...

So back in October, me and 199 of my closest friends got laid off from Dell. Which classically sucked because I was ranked number 1 out of 158 techs there. So I have been looking since then to get a new job. I've done some odd stuff like Sales at Dell. Never again.

But I did manage to pass my 070-272 to get my Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician certification, and I think it helped land me this job at my mom's work. I don't think the pay is going to be fantastic, but it will let me go back to school again since I will be out of there at 3:45PM, and go in at 7:45PM.

Seems like a pretty easy job. Sit there and answer phones again, and do less work than I did at Dell. They said it was mostly password resets and sending Mac issues to the software department.

So I am hoping to hear from them tomorrow. I was shooting for the L2 job, but they said I didn't have enough "hands-on" expierence yet.

Cool, congrats. I am halfway looking for a new job, as I am wanting to get married in within the next 6 months to a year and the current job just isn't cutting it.

This one won't either after a few years, but I can't beat the schedule and the crazy benefits.

good luck. I did IT for a little bit after college while looking for a programming job. Dealing with people is fun at times and not at others.

After being a Dell tech, there is nothing I haven't heard, and I have learned to never take any personally.

Re: Think I got this new job...

God do I need a job where I can get hours.

Since I quit working a a cashier at Sunoco in September where I was making 45+ hours a week at $7/hr I have been to three.

FYE, sucked ***. I was on my feet all day answering questions and had to wear dress shoes. I have a bad back so it wasnt working out considering I had about 17 hours a week. Plus I had nothing in common with any of my coworkers and really disliked them all.

Quiznos, sucked ***. I worked with fat chicks that smelled bad and were not cool people at all. My manager was an idiot and I got 1 shift a week. So thats in the tube.

Local ski mountain Big Boulder, not bad. I just got this one midway through November but there are so many people I can't really get many hours again. I have to drive over a 1/2 hour to get to work and make $8.50/hr on like 18 hour weeks....

I need to move out of this area I think.

Re: Think I got this new job...

Well, they called today and made me the offer. A little over $25k/year. I'm excited about it. It's close, it pays just as much as Dell, and I get full benefits.

And my desk there...will be bigger than my room.

Yea, I remember when I was working full time in the IT department at the Bank I used to work at. I then got my degree and moved to Bham for a 70+% raise Felt good to actually have money for once.
