I never read the thank you letters. I've made my mind up at the interview, the letter is just more spam.

If you see him, you need to avoid eye contact and just run out the door. It's important you don't have any contact with him as your letter will just be awkward then.

The dealership is 3hrs away in the bay. I live in bum **** now where in the mountains. Move is pending employment, not worth 6hrs of driving to drop it off. I mailed one to him last night though.

No time for a photo shoot. The only thing convenient was a wallet sized Christmas photo left over from last year, with my 2 adopted Ethiopian siblings.

It's a good picture. I don't know what more you want from me.


Next question. I have 2 interviews tomorrow, both for local dealerships.
Local one, Sierra Motors, I feel like they're going to offer me the job after the interview. It's for their quick lube lane of their shop, half0assed pay, and I fit the mold perfectly. If they do offer it to me, but I still wanna hold out to hear back from Mr. Porsche. How do I go about telling them, I don't want it right off the bat?

If they want you for the job, they'll take you next week after you wake up and realize you aren't cut out to turn wrenches on Porsches.

generally speaking in the interview I always tell them I need a week before I start to sort out prior engagements, this gives you enough time for other offers to come in ect.

I actually had one guy, when looking at my resume, ask why I couldn't hold a job.

I'm a contract worker, you dipshit. He started asking those retarded interview questions. The ones like, "what is your greatest weakness?" and **** like that. I stood up and told him the interview was over, then left. They offered me the job 2 days later.
