Rob B Posted September 24, 2004 Report Share Posted September 24, 2004 So here's my dilemma.... About 6 months to a year ago I had been trying to get a Job at a Home Theater/Appliance Store. I am a fairly regular customer at this store I have bought my Reicvier, Washer, Dryer, and chest freezer from there. I'm not saying this reason enough to give me the job, but I would have at least liked an interview. Since the owner and some of the other sales people now that I know more than the average person in the home theater area I figured that since they were hiring an getting an interview would be no problem. I was wrong. After finding out they had hired someone else less qualified in the sales aspect, in my opinion, I gave up. I did get a different job, which is were I am working now and I like a lot. I get along really well with my boss, the asst manager and the other two people. I like that I don't work nights or weekends. They also WANT me to move up to sales, where I'd start out at 1800 a month plus commissions. I got an E-Mail the other day from the owner of the Home Theater place asking me if I would be still be interested in working for them. :shock: Information that would been useful to me in May, which is when they hired that other guy. So now I don't know what I should do. Fastenal is a great place to be working for but it?s not necessarily the type of Sales that I want to be doing. I'd like to have a home theater store someday. So it would seem that the decision would be easy, but it not. These are a few reasons why. 1. When I was going though the process of trying to land an interview at Home source I felt I was getting the run around. 2. Fastenal has been a very great, easy going, I have a voice, kind of place to work for. In the short time I have been there I already obtained one raise. 3. Home source is open in the evenings and on Saturday. 4. Home Theater is my true passion tools and bolts are not but it?s a good learning experience for sales. 5. I feel like I have "bonded" with my boss and consider him a friend and I would find it difficult to say I am quitting is offered the job at home source. 6. I know that I would do very well at home source 7. Fastenal "wants" me to be done with school and become a salesman for them 8. Home Source and Fastenal are both great stepping-stones for me to achieve my goal. So that?s my dilemma, mainly because I'm too nice of a person perhaps. I got an E-mail again today letting me know there're a few positions open right now and he would like to meet with me so we can talk about them. So do you guys have any thoughts on this situation?
