    New Job Gloat!!

    This isn't really that off topic, it is related to woodworking, but I just found out that my application was accepted by the Woodsmith Store to work part-time. You can see more about it here if you don't know about it already.

    I will only work about 5-10hrs a week there, but since I'm there over lunch at least 2 times a week I figure I might as well get paid to be there. Don't know if there is a employee discount, but that would be an added bonus if there is.

    Would love to work at my Woodcraft, but they dont have a turn over of help. The help has been there from the get go going on 4 years. Maybe they know something we dont.

    Congrats, Jeff. Like a kid in a candy store, I'll bet.

    Thanks, and yes but I'll need more than spare change to buy the candy I want.

    Hey Jeff, a BIG Congratulations on the PTJ @ Woodcraft. I would "LOVE to Work" part time for them, but just can't afford it. (seems they don't pay quite well enough even with discounts to compensate for the Gasoline it would take for the 300 mile commute each way).

    Some of you guys are just "TOO" Lucky.

    Congratulations, hope you can afford this part time job. I turned down a part time job at a gunstore I frequent. Told the owner I couldn't afford to work there, heck every other week I would be asking him how much I owe him!!!!!

    That is somewhat of a concern.... The LOML told me I could take the job only if I agreed to not ask for additional $$ to buy something there. Hopefully I can use the advise my parents have always told me, "Don't go broke saving money." I won't start until the weekend of the 23rd and I'm trying not to go to the store to start my list....I should say add to my list I already have.

    Jeff, in all reality and what the other workers at the gunstore told me, you will go through a period of buying. That is normal, then it will slow down as you realize you can pick it up any time. Be glad they don't take tradeins, just imagine the used tool selection you would have to draw from!

    They do have floor models used in demos and classes though that they sell from time to time....I'm hoping they get some mustard in so I can get it with the "rust" discount. (I won't tell anyone that I caused the rust with my drool.)
