I started out today at Gateway. Man, that place is a hoot. There are a whopping 9 people in my training class — that’s why there is no night training, way too few people. Anywho, I am the youngest person there by 4 years; there is a guy who used to work at a computer store who is 21. Everyone else is in their mid-late twenties, a chick who’s like 35 and an ex-army dude who’s gotta be pushing 40. I feel kind of bad about it. Why? Because the job is *WAY* too easy. It is not technically challenging at all. I mean *at all*. I expected this though, so I’m not bummed. Just feels a little awkward showing up these older people; all the written exams, the forms, the typing tests, I smoke everyone. And I get it all right. every time. Sure, that means I’m super-duper, but it’s kind of … man … I don’t know how to say it. The thought of not going back tomorrow has flitted across my mind, but I really need the money; I think I’ll be able to stomach training and even some real work — I am going to try my damndest to get onto one of the special teams: escalated support, e-mail support, the IT group [which is done by lockheed-martin], or even move to denver and get a job with the internal support department there. Dunno, but I really don’t want to be a support flunky for long.
Oh yea, i got ~ $1,100 today. That’s nice; bank balance sky-rockets to $1,396 and summarily crashes [after bills] down to sub $700. Let me tell you, that part sucks. And I still have lots of bills to pay. Oh well, that’s the breaks. Anyone want to buy a truck and get me a high-tech high-paying job? That requires little experience?
