Back to the drawing board.


Let's just say my new "job" didn't work out. After my first day of work, I received a phone call two hours after I got home. I was let go of my position, (the position was given to someone the owner knew). The receptionist told me I could pick up my day's pay whenever I wanted. I returned the next day where I was given $30 in cash. $7 an hour.

I was hired for $13.50 an hour.

To say I am not happy would be an understatement. I was hired for this position two weeks before my first day. That's two whole weeks I could have been looking for real employment elsewhere.

I've decided that while I am still looking in and around my area, I will also be looking at other states to apply for work. Has anyone here ever done this? Any success stories?

I need some positivity right now.


  1. I cannot believe that Katie! What a ridiculous business!

    We've had success looking for work out of state. From Alabama to Alaska and to Virginia. It can be done.

  2. I'm so sorry Katie, that is absolutely ridiculous treatment. You're better off not working for somebody like that anyway. Yes, looking in other states can be done but you need to be open to traveling for interviews. Just put your resume out their and focus on the kind of position you want and you will attract it.

  3. Thanks y'all. I'm brushing off my shoulders and continuing to plow through. :)
