Must Have Been The Good Vibes

Cause it wasn't anything I said in the interview but


The interview was at 1pm, I was out of their at 1:30pm, at 3pm I got a call with the offer, at 3:30 I was at the contract firm signing the contract.

The interview was the strangest one I have been on in which I actually got the job. The interviews similiar to the one I had today was usually a courtesy interview because they already had a candidate and were going through the motions or I was their female interview.

I sat down, asked my usual questions, got their answers and then waited for their questions. You know, the usual interview questions. These are the questions I got:

Them: Do you know Microsoft Office
Me: Yes
Them: What would you say your user level is?
Me: Pretty close to expert, I have taught people how to use some stuff.
Them: Wow, I sure could use some help.
Them: Can you travel?
Me: Yes, I have no problem with travel
Them: Sometimes travel is very last minute
Me: I have no problem with last minute travel
Them: What about overnight, sometimes it's overnight travel
Me: I have no problem with travel
Them: When would be the soonest you could start if we made an offer?
Me: Monday
Them: Well ok, it was nice to meet you. Any last questions
Me: *blink*
Me: Not at this time.

And that was the whole interview, gods honest truth.

I thought for sure it was a token interview and they already had someone else in mind. The furthest thing from my mind was getting an offer 1 1/2 hours later.

So papers are signed, drug screen done. Just waiting on the results of the drug screen and most likely I will be starting on Monday.

The best thing?

I am actually making more money then my last job and it's a 9 minute door to door drive.

Oh and I will be doing my Quality magic on Transmissions. Yes Transmissions, I will be learning something completely new, oh cool is that.

A women with Transmission knowledge? Yea, the opportunities will be endless once I master the Transmission cause it's a very small knowledge base.

I am so happy for you! That is just amazing. They probably knew they wanted you before you walked in the door, and just needed to ask some token questions! Love that. Congrats and big hugs!!!

Once upon a time I had to animate the sun gear, planet gear and ring gear for a service video. I hope all goes well for you.

Your learning will be far beyond this....

Congrats! It was just a matter of time before a company realized you where the perfect fit for their organization.

But I must know, what kind of vehicles are you making trannies for?
