Well, with the new status updates in the "New" dA page... is this Shoutbox thing obsolete?

Been about a year and a half since anyone posted anything here... folks, is anyone looking at the Shoutbox, or has Twitter made it redundant?

If anyone actually reads the Shoutbox, I haven't fallen off the edge of the earth. Trying to get myself to sit and post to the Journal. :work:

Hey, Tru Believaz.  I need prayer and James 1 wisdom on something.

I'd been seeking full time employment, and may have found something... there's a call center about less than an hour's drive from my home, and it seems they need people.  I followed up on a job search notice well over a month old in an e-mail I hadn't checked in a while, and decided to follow up on it.  

The interview went spectacularly, and they seem ready to hire.  They probably would've put me in training the very next Monday.  But there are a few things I was wondering about.

Benefits after 90 days
Full time work, with bonuses if I meet sales goals
Possible overtime
Much more stable schedule
Ready to train

$1.50 less per hour than what I make now
Longer commute
Dealing with occasional irate customers over phone
May have to work holidays and weekends

This is what I do know:  if the steady pay per hour were higher, I'd have snapped up the job already.  But they seem ready for me to go.

I'm wondering what the turnover rate is for that place, and how long people actually last before they burn out.  It's a bit of a red flag.

Still, I know I can't last forever on only the part time hours I have now.

I'm also concerned on who'll care for my parents' dogs and completing NaNoWriMo if I accept this new job.

My potential bosses have allowed me 'til Monday to give my aye or nay on this.  I'm hoping to get prayer, counsel and good advice on this.  I hope you'll extend the same to me, Tru Believa.

Well, at least I wasn't told I belong in a zoo, looked like a monkey, or smelled like one, too.

Thanks very much. :)
