I go in for an interview today and receive news from a Transportation Manager that she doesn't feel I'm a good fit for warehouse work.
I kept imagining myself on one of those powerful forklifts, moving pallets from one end of the big room to the other. Or sweeping up an area that really needed some extra attention, or meeting with the guys in the break room and enjoying sandwiches and coffee together during lunch.
She said maybe something in the retail operation would be better suited for me. I like customers a lot, but hanging with the guys and gals at the warehouse seemed like really good times.
And good money as well! I switched on the TV this weekend and caught some of Joel Osteen's sermon. Apparently I qualify for double, so I was figuring they'd offer me about $21 per hour! Mr. Flexible Team Player would instantly become Mr. Big Spender!
Well, I just wanted to take a moment to say "thank you" to The Home Depot for its time today. She really was pleasant. If you need me in one of your stores, please feel free to give me a call and I'll come over for another visit.
