i can’t believe how true this comment is…

My interview this morning was with a company I was a little, um, squitchy over. I wasn’t sure it was going to be a good place to work because I’d heard some bad things about the amount of turnover and they don’t advertise/have a website. How am I supposed to interview with only a job description? I don’t like going in blind.

I’m happy about the interview - and I was pretty much guaranteed a second - but there’s that little voice in my head that’s saying “DANGER! WILL ROBINSON! DANGER! DANGER!” I had an idea about how badly the temp-to-perm disaster affected me, but apparently I’m doubting EVERYTHING. It’s like I’m afraid to have an offer extended to me because I’m terrified to make the wrong choice again.

The guys I spoke with were pretty detailed over WHY there was so much turnover in the accounting department. I didn’t even have to bring it up. We talked about the bad google search results, but I expected their responses based on the industry they’re in. It’s kind of like working for a restaurant - only the people they piss off talk about their experiences. This company’s industry is all about pissing people off. Seriously. Oddly enough, I’m OK with that. I know what they do. I know how it works. I’m not surprised by the amount of people they piss off. (Honestly, I’d be shocked if people were all, “OMG! I lurve them! I had the best experience! They were so gentle when they cut my fingers off!” OK. Gross exaggeration…)

There’s a lot to like about the position. Pay. Commute. People. Possibilities to grow. Dress code. Hours. A whole lot. Did I mention the salary and flexible hours? I love the idea that I’m on the low end of what they’re offering. LOW END. And that I can be in at 7 and out at 3. Who wouldn’t, right?

It’s not an international company, though. I do have an interview with one tomorrow though… also close to home.

I don’t know. I’m still waiting to hear from other companies I think I’d like to work for.

As much as I don’t want to be unemployed, I’m also not sure I’m ready to take another job.

I wish I knew how to get past my fear…
