Deeper and Deeper

So this is the second Tuesday of my training. Turns out that we're on the express training which has been cut down to 3 weeks instead of 5, which is good because i would go crazy. First week was pretty much an introduction to everything and now we're getting more into serious systems training. Sometimes it's frustrating because i can see the people in front of me, one in particular, browsing the Internet on various distractions and then when she decides to come back from her diversion, she'll instantly interrupt the teacher and say she's confused and lost and it's too complicated and demand to get caught up. I can already pick out a handful of people who I'm betting wont be successful here. Some people are just silly. I am catching on quite well. I'm still confident and excited to see how i do on the floor in a couple weeks.

Something exciting:The Biggest Loser show is having some event and has contracted DAC (Direct Alliance Corp.) to take the inbound sales calls. They made the announcement to all employees and anyone could sign up to participate. Of course i jumped all over the opportunity to get my feet wet. Its tonight from 6 till 11:30. I get paid overtime plus a $35 bonus. I still have training from 8 - 5, so it's a full day, but why not? I really don't have a reason not to. I'm very excited. I'll definitely blog about my experience.

Also... I have to choose my benefits plan. I only have a couple more weeks to do it. If any of you would like to help me do that please let me know and we'll schedule a time to meet up. I would appreciate that.
