I got this interview tomorrow and I am going to cancel it. Why you may ask? it sounds like something bizarre. First off the job pays $9 hour, which sounds ok until I mention our minimum wage is $8 hour. Someone might say that at least they pay more but here’s the issue, it is a call center job that requires one to work weekends and evenings and holidays, including Christmas. It’s also a half hour away. I don’t think there are benefits either.
But it gets better. At the interview I have to take a computer test and a typing test and have to type 40wpm. I have no idea my wpm as I’ve never held a job that required that (just had jobs that required me to type on Word or Word Perfect). They also do a keying test. In addition they also require a list of references and a credit check (I think). Another thing too that is weird is that the person I would have to call is in another state. This company doesn’t even have HR people in their company.
Unreal that these are the types of jobs that are out there. Once upon a time call center jobs pay more than this and basically you got the job if you came to the interview. They didn’t even care about references.
