I finally found a position through a temp agency. It was a position with a fairly big company. A position in their credit department. I was excited about this job because it was such a big company, and that was what I wanted. I wanted a job with a large company, and I was going to work my way up from the bottom. The American Dream, right?
Man, this job sucked. I spent all day calling customers trying to get them to pay on their accounts. And I had a quota. I had contact like sixty customers per day. And these customers were never happy about me calling them asking for money. I have never been cussed out so many times in my life.
I worked with a bunch of middle age women. For real, I was the only male in the credit department. All day I would have to sit there and listen to these women gossip about each other and other nonsense. I would have to listen to constant complaining from these ladies. Complaining about everything and everyone. But they were so nice to each others face.
