2nd interview - oh boy.
« on: November 12, 2009, 11:47:49 AM »
Well, after looking on and off for over a year for another prepress job I am being called back for a 2nd interview at a place that might be suitable for me. Having mixed feelings about my current job as some days it is pretty ok, and other days I wonder why I even took it on.

Money talks I guess, if everything else is right and it puts me back to the wage I was accustomed to when I took on a hefty mortgage then maybe it is time for a change.

Hmm, meeting with my boss today was weird. He's now talking about sinking resources into this division and doubling or quadrupling sales, which he said means possible 6 figure salary for me.

Maybe 6 figures means 0000.00 or maybe he just wants you to work 20 hours a day 365 days a year?

Yeah lol.
I'm salary here and it's a seasonal business so it'd be difficult to find something to do that many hours a day. I have a hard time finding 8 hours of work to do off season sometimes. That will change though if I'm still here come January when our season starts up again.

Sounds like you'll suss things OK. Whatever environment you end up in, there's a shed-load of experience here if you get in a jam. (Myself excluded from that group of folks... :laugh:).

Good luck in your decision. Carrots being dangled, by the sounds... :undecided:

I hope I can add to the experience as well as glean from it here. Sure are a bunch of smart folks here.

Yeah, the carrot thing. I really wonder where it's coming from. Just had my annual review, which was good, but did not include anything I could take to the bank (company wide freeze on increases, yadda yadda b.s.)

It's a lot to think about, bottom line is that I don't have a passion for this business, and there's one person here that I really cannot stand, I'm supposed to play nice with her, and this big future is hanging off her efforts as head of marketing. I don't have confidence in her abilities to do this, and I don't have confidence that she'd be replaced if she didn't perform as expected.

Gut-level feeling is the way to go, prolly. Too many unknowns.  The inner game of prepress... :rolleyes:  And sounds like your gut-level is not likin' where you are.
