In response to a confession. Congrats! I did the police dispatch test last week and passed with a 94%. The trainer seemed to be very excited for me, but the hiring process is very involved. Next step is a panel interview with her and 2 other employees, which the next available is at the end of the month. From there, it'd be another 4-8 weeks for a polygraph and background check. And then the training is about 40 weeks! I'm hopeful for this opportunity though.

A coworker asked for a meeting with me, and then told me he was going to report me on an issue I resolved months ago. I was blindsided. This is someone I see every day and he has never said anything. He said he was going to call me out in a meeting. He's leaving the job in three weeks, by the way. I told him to say whatever he wants in the meeting. He said, well, he's not going to do that, but he's going to make phone calls. I told him fine, but that in the future he should deal with these issues in a more timely and collegial manner. Today he texted to apologize for blindsiding me, but said I needed to communicate more respectfully. I told him that, actually, I was the one who had told him to communicate more respectfully, and that I had done so in person yesterday. I also told him that I did not respect the way he had handled the issue, hence my tone, but that I did appreciate his apology. Did he expect me to apologize to him? What a prick!

The place I had to go to do my drug test was this sketchy clinic that sold vapes and CBD oil. WTF??

Minimum wage for tipped employees in 2018 is $3.52/hr. And that's in our state. The federal minimum wage is $2.13. It's so disgusting it should be criminal to pay people a wage like that. The fact that they also make tips does not matter. That is a slave wage. Fun fact: In Alaska, the minimum wage is the same for tipped and non-tipped employees.

Ok, soapbox rant here. A local family-run restaurant in our town had to close because they didn't have enough people working there. The owner was all "poor me" about it in the news but he's paying people minimum wage to work there. Lots of other businesses nearby pay assemblers, chefs, waitresses, etc. at least $3 an hour more. If companies want to stay in business, PAY PEOPLE A FAIR GODDAMN WAGE.

I had a bipolar husband. There are different kinds of bipolar. None of them are easy for a spouse to live with or a co-worker to work with. Hell on earth, in fact. Because you never know what you're going to have to deal with next.

In response to a confession. I got the JOB!!! It's going to pay more than I would have made at any of the other jobs I interviewed for and the commute is super short! I'm so excited!!

A recruiter contacted me on indeed. Talked up a lot of great things so I had a phone interview today. Very misleading job description. It'd pay about $3 more per hour, but the commute would be an hour each way. And if I moved to that part of town, housing is either ridiculously priced or seriously crime infested. Plus the description made it out to be a loan advisor and purchase agent but it's cold calling debt collection, which is basically the one job I could never do and have a good conscience. I've gotten another half dozen rejections but I got invited to test for a police dispatch job next week. Hopefully that one goes well- it pays nearly twice what I make now.

Me too, OP. I'm looking hard too. I had an interview on Friday for a job with a very good company that I thought went well. I'll find out if I got it or not this week, but yeah--lots of interview, no offers. I hope you find something soon. Job hunting just sucks so bad.
