Day 1

Well, it wasn't too bad. Of course, all I did was sit at a computer and watch training stuff or fill out paperwork for about 6 hours. I don't think it will be a bad gig. The pay isn't too bad for a part time day job and there is a little bit of commission to help out. I can also pick up hours in other departments if need be, once I've got the hang of everything. I feel like I should be more excited about it than I am. I'm extremely grateful for having found any job after such a long time of unemployment. I guess I was hoping to find something with a higher salary, full time that wasn't retail again. Oh well, that may come later. This will help get me out of the house some and give me a little bit of cash in my pocket. Tomorrow I go back for some more training and a couple of hours on the sales floor to get familiar with the people and the department.

Sounds good Dave. A reason to get up in the morning and even a little cash in your pocket can make a big difference in your mood.

And by being attentive and helpful, you have the ability to make a real difference in somebody else's day too.

And I strongly suspect in the course of time this will be a stepping stone to something you'll like even better. So it's all good, man. Cheers.

maybe not ideal, but a good beginning. Hope it goes well. Cheers!

I always hated those first days at a new job - the training videos (mostly worthless to anyone with any sense), etc.
I hope the job goes well for you. I understand it is not what you would like to be doing, but I cannot help but think that it will renew your sense of productivity and worth (as well as your "cents") and get you out among us again.
Besides, adventures in retail are always good fodder for posts. :)

Congrats on the new job, such as it is. I've been busy with real life for a while and haven't checked in recently. I'm most pleased to hear that you got this job, and hope, like Russ said, that it's a stepping stone to bigger and better things.

I'm confused. I thought you were getting a job in porn?

Are the video's really cheesy? Showing people tripping up over hazards and featuring some really bad acting?
