My wife went to the interview and wasn't impressed. The place is too far for part time and

She would basically be a secretary for the purchasing department.

The way they made it should like it was more than what it actually was made my wife upset.

Thanks everyone for your support

She going to stick with the data entry temp job and hope they hire her or she finds a full time permanent job.

Already they are blaming the victim in the New York Ebola case.... Dr Spencer

My wife and I listen to various news tonight and we heard all the info about the New York Doctor--My he have a speedy recovery.

And we got frustrated with some of the talk. Especially my wife.

FIRST off-- Those Doctors and nurses and physician assistances who work with such programs like Doctors without boarders should be saluted. THEY are heroes.

Second--Yes, sometimes the hardest patients to have as patients are people in the health care industry...My wife's cousin is a doctor and he hates to admit he is sick or run down. Sometimes He has worked a 60 hour work week and has felt sluggish and tired and yet goes out to a movie or plays basketball with his friends because he needs that human contact of being with just friends and being a normal human being he personally feels like he doesn't get all the time.

Now this guy had been out of the country SO long plane right... WHO THE HECK DOES NOT get JET LAG after a long flight. Not to mention working long hours with patients of course this guy is going to feel sluggish and tired.

This is also a doctor who dealt with patients with Ebola and he would know how dangerous this case is and I think he did the proper protocol.

Yes, a lot of health care workers have died treating people with Ebola BUT look at all the health care workers who have treated people and have not gotten ebola.

Is it wrong for my wife and I to believe the media of this country should cut this Doctor some slack. Okay he probably should have waited to have sex with his girlfriend (let's face it that is what the media is basically saying without saying it.) but if I haven't seen my wife for a few months yeah I'd probably jump her bones too.

This guy didn't shit over anyone, He didn't vomit on anyone, He didn't bleed on anyone or anything. THOSE ARE the ways to get it.

Let's stop the sky is falling fear mongering junk.

Can we please see the media and citizens have an adult conversation?

I'm sorry I am pissing people off by saying this but I honestly let's keep our heads.

As soon as Doctor Spencer showed the first signs he took the proper steps. Let's give him credit.

Holy Crap, Batman, it is flooding job offers... Wife has no clue what to do.

Okay yesterday I informed you guys she got the DATA Entry job she thought she didn't get. she found out it would be a Temp job about 5-9 Months. $11/hr

Yesterday afternoon she received an e-mail from (what she thinks is AT&T) asking to call to schedule an interview. for there customer service call center... Now it would pay $13/hr but it is in West Virginia which is about a half hour from our home in PA.

Now reading the e-mail encouraging her to interview she is wondering IF the company would be the right fit for her.

Today she gets a call from another staffing company ( she didn't know the job was through yet another one.) for a medical-like customer service/sales job. However upon seeing her resume and her work in the health field this company wants to interview her for a purchasing job. Mon-Fri she would set her own time. It would be $10/hr with quarterly bonuses. IF this company likes her work they would hire her full time.

If nothing else she wants to go to the interview for this company for the experience if nothing else but if they like her and offer her the job she doesn't know what to do.

She feels obligated to go with the first job she was offered BUT it is temporary. and if this last one can be permanent and the second offer is permanent as well she doesn't want to risk the chance of losing out.

Any advice?

Okay...My wife was offered the job today.

She honestly thought she didn't get it but the staffing company did call today and said the company wanted to offer her the job.

Now she did accept it. She thought it was a perament job but it is a 5-9 month placement.
At least she will get experience and maybe if she does a good enough job they might ask her to stay. She is just grateful to get out of the health care industry right now.

My wife want to thank you all for your support, encouragement and good vibes.

My wife is Pissed: Poor Nina Pham is trapped in a hospital and CNN is talking about destroying her


"What the hell kind of fucked up society have we become where our fuckin' media can't have compassion enough for a sick woman NOT to talk about if her pet should be destroyed." --my wife.

The argument is probably happening behind some close doors Why does it need to be a public one?

Looks like my wife didn't get the job. She never heard back after the phone interview

and the guy was making his choice within an hour of speaking to my wife.

However it seems like a game of telephone...Regional office calls corporate...Corporate office calls staffing company corporate office who calls regional office... She might hear something Monday but she is going on the idea she didn't get it.

HOWEVER She was shocked to hear from the at&t call center in West Virginia. past their pre-employment test but they had hired everyone they needed. She got a text message and e-mail requesting she re-apply for the customer service specialist again.

The place is about 30 mins away from Washington PA and would start her at $13.00/hr. + benefits.

UPDATE:Company has requested a phone interview with my wife today at 1:30 EST HELP

She has never done a phone interview. Any suggestions or pointers?

She also wants to thank you all for the support and encouragement you have shown her.

UPDATE-- My Wife's Job Testing.... No news and my wife is going insane.

Okay. I encouraged my wife to quit the job she was at because of two factors

1- She was being overworked and they didn't seem to care about putting her in a situation that she could have been harm.

2- She heard--which she wasn't meant to know... That the company --not willing to fire her would NEVER give her a positive reference or recommendation to anyone.

We are incredibly lucky that we where able to buy our house out right. We have no mortgage and no loans for cars or anything. IT would be tight... no extra spending. But I can pay all our utilities, buy groceries and even pay for cable for my mom ( my wife gave it as a gift to my mom) and keep our head above water.

My wife does want to work the one draw back here seems to be that almost every place is going through a staffing company of some sort.

So my wife called the one staffing company... THEY HAVE NOT heard anything from the company she tested for.

The person giving the test said the third party coming sends her the results back within 2 hours. So my wife waited all day yesterday. last night she could not sleep. today she has an upset stomach she is nervous. I think she is giving herself heart burn.

I think part of the reason is that my wife subconsciously can't get over the fact we are in such a good spot. Her family has always struggled with her mom being a single parent with little help from her dad. Plus during our 12 years of marriage we have had some bad financial spots... both of us working and still not able to make ends meet.

So now she is stressing out wondering how she could be the only one to show up for the test and she could be denied a job not because she didn't interview well or because she did bad on a relevant skills test but because a "personality test..."

Any suggestion on helping my wife? No she does not drink tea so chamomile is out of the question.

Well my wife is back from her testing... IT only took an hour. SHE was the only testee to show up

The test was about customer service when the job she is basically testing for in primarily data entry.

My wife like to think she did good BUT the test questions where in her mind mostly subjective. I mean some where right or wrong.

But then again it was a scale Strong Disagree to Strong agree.

She is hoping to get this job. She like to think she will be asked to stay on pass the temp assignment and eventually move up.

My wife has a job interview...well she is going for 2 hour testing. the job is a DATA ENTRY/

RECEPTIONIST for a construction company and she is concern nervous.

any words of advise or suggestion on how to find some good practice test online.

Test is tomorrow.

should she take are resume just in case?

She is working with a staffing company trying to find a better position.

BTW after she and my cousin worked with a certain group home/company MY wife wants nothing more to do Home Care field or working with physically challenged individuals and it isn't so much a client's action IT was in fact the head office.
