    Got the job pending the dreaded background check. I went and gave the yellow water sample... :rolleyes: No concern there unless they mix up the sample with someone elses...
    I am concerned with the background check because of previous experiences with TRAK1 screwing it up... They confused Michael William ***** with Michael Wayne *****. I hope they get it right this time.

    The pay... wow... the pay is almost shamefull. $7.65 an hour. Its been a decade or more since i worked for that low of a wage. Problem is i have been looking for a while now and nothing has come my way...and i have to cover my expenses. I can't live off of dwindling savings forever.

    I sure hope the economy improves at some point in the future.

    If any of y'all would like to pray that the background check is done accurately...i would appreciate it. Thanks.

    Double prayers here. Maybe triple.
    First that you get the job.
    Second 'cause you need a job that pays that.
    I gave up on job searching after 4 months, I'm going back to school and the government pays me unemployment for nearly another year. Plus more if I need it after Financial Aid.

    Good luck man!

    Congrats. I agree on the pay rate but sometimes you just don't have good options. Still, work is better than no work, even at $7 an hour.

    Great to hear GN, hope things work out. I know, I'm looking for a job to supplement my retirement. I just can't live solely on my retirement, imagine that! It's hard to find anything. Good luck! After you get the job, get the white lightning out and celebrate!
