    Today I went to apply at a global marketing research company. I took their typing test and did well. They gave me an on the spot interview. The guy that was hiring had me read a passage and he said that I have a good voice, but I need to work on my enunciation and to slow down my speed a bit. He told me that I need to take a drug test and then he will try to get me into the training class next week. I will be typing and possibly making calls. Basically you ask people survey questions about services they have used. It seems easy enough for a job that is just above minimum wage. I am feeling positive and hope all goes well.

    That's great! I hope things work out! :) PS...just curious, is a drug test a standard thing now? I haven't worked in over 13 years and never heard of those tests at all for job applications.

    Thank you everyone for the kind words :)

    @Frances M -- I think it is standard now. Don't really know for sure.

    Thank you again everyone :) I just hope I do well on the training period and don't slip up. It will be hard for me to talk to strangers on the phone, but I will just need to get over that fear somehow.

    I remember a story about someone nervous about taking a driving test. They were told to imagine the tester totally nude except for a pair of socks. It would help them relax. Maybe you could try this on the phone. Just don't break into uncontrolled laughter it you do.

    CONGRATS ON THE JOB.

    Haha, I will keep that in mind, thanks :p I am just waiting for the drug test results to come in. This job has made me decide that I want to quit pot and alcohol altogether, even though I did it infrequently. I have purpose in my life now and don't want to lose the job.
