    Yep, just got the call this afternoon. It's at Online Support, a tech-help call center. Very easy work (guy I know only answers 8 calls a day), and it pays more than my crappy A&W job :D

    Plus, I think it's going to be the evening shift (5pm-1am) which is great, sinceI always stay up late anyway.

    And, I know at least 2 people that work there.

    Woohoo! A good job, finally!!!

    I might be able to. Bobby, my brother's friend who works there, apparently just plays around on the net all day when not answering calls. And it seemed pretty layed back when I went down for my interview (and it's a pretty cool place too, with lots of geeks, lol).

    awesome! :D

    probably best not to start posting on the boards the first few days on the job though ;) :p

    let them get used to you first, but if it's that relaxed, and there isn't anything to do when not answering calls i've found that posting on the boards can actually be a good way to look like you're busy. that is as long as nobody's looking over your shoulder of course.

    lol, yeah, for a while I went into the 3rd stage of a JCer, the one where you barely post. But then I reverted to a 2nd stager :D

    You deserve it, Derek! :D I'm so happy for you... I know what a relief it is to get a job that you feel is a good fit for you.

    Thanks guys!

    Just got back from orientation.

    This job is going to be teh kick ass!

    The dude said like 90% of the calls us just walking people through the wizard that sets up their internet connections! Sweet ass sweet! I know how to do that, because my ISP sucks ass and I had to do it myself last time I got my connection set up :D

    And my hours are pretty good too, 6pm-1am. Hell, I'm up that late anyway, might as well get paid for it. ;)
