Yeah, because I have a telephone interview for a position as a junior egg inspector.

Don't laugh. It pays very well!

It's for 2 shifts a week for 20 hours.

We will see...

@Reyn,
You're retired, Reyn, why would they call you "junior" and what the (h)egg
is an egg inspector? Will you be strictly working with hens, Mr. Rooster?

@jespah,
They better, because I can't speak chicken!

So, what you guys think? Seems okay. I would presume that it's 10 hours per shift.

Nah. They just want to see if you really speak English.

BTW - I hope you aren't on dial-up. You will miss your call. Wink

I'm on high speed cable (Shaw).

So, I shouldn't answer the call with 'pawk, pawk, pawk'?

Probably would get put in the 'No" pile then, huh? Laughing

@Reyn,
I knew this job sounded familiar. I had applied for a similar position back in December 2006 and reported it HERE.

Quote:
So, currently I have a resume in for a job as an egg inspector. The job closes Jan 6th and I'm eagerly awaiting a call for an interview (fingers crossed). I'm particularly excited about this one, as the hours are perfect for a semi-retired person. Only 2 shifts a week (15 hours) and the pay is certainly decent enough, too ($15/hr). So, we'll see.


Nothing happened at that time. So, we'll see if anything is different this time around.

Does anyone know if knowledge and experience with Microsoft Works spreadsheet would be okay if they're mentioning the Excel program?

@Reyn,
Well, they are similar in that they are both spreadsheet programs.

@Intrepid,
Okay, so if I said that I've had experience with the former, I wouldn't look like a complete dolt for learning the Excel one?

@Reyn,
Just say you have experience with Microsoft spreadsheets. That is not a lie. Wink
