Today was my first day of work at my new job.
For security reasons, I can't tell yous the exact name or location of the place I'm working at. But just know I'm pursuing a career in collections.
I know, I know. The first thing anyone does when they realize I'm doing collections now is shy away and go "ewww...you're one of those," all disdainful and such. The second thing they tend to do is say "now if you see MY name, don't call me!" Jay even went so far as to say that if I called him (because he KNOWS he has an account with the agency I work for) that he'd curse me out.
I politely informed him, of course, that should he do that to me that he wouldn't live past 5:05 to tell the tale.
To be quite honest, I sat in a training room today with people who wouldn't dream of doing anything but collections. And the truth is, it's good ass money. Sure, your hourly is gonna be crap, but the bonus check is what you're really there for. That bonus check is what makes all the difference.
I'm actually considering staying at DSW for a period of time, if only for the discount. Which I may not even have to do if I don't want and if the collections thing works out.
I'm also on a mission tonight to speak to an admissions representative to get enrolled in online classes at the University of Phoenix.
My life is finally getting back on track...
