A difficult call came in today. I had two options open as far as what my first job would be, and the previous successful conclusion of the driving test for the local operation pretty much secured it for me. I knew I'd have to end consideration of the second offer eventually, but that choice was thrust upon me with a sudden phone call. It was the recruiter who operates his own service of coordinating employees with employers. It caught me off guard, and the person who called didn't make the conversation any easier by doing his best to speak negatively about the company that I mentioned I would be working for (without using outright negative phrases). However, I found something to be amiss in how strongly he insisted I go with the other company that he had aligned me with, making particular note about how the pay I'd be earning would be "roughly half" of what he was offering (and it isn't) and how being home every one or two weeks is acceptable (which, compared to the job I'll soon have which puts me home daily, is not). My lack of inclination to argue the point led me to tell him I'd call back, and I did so after exercising. In that time I had made up my mind to stay resolute and stick with what I had started. He didn't answer when I called back, and I left a message.

The entire situation threw me off because I didn't have the understanding that I was considered "pre hired" by the second firm, and that the person who called me was actually not just a go-between to the actual carriers. I thought it would have been my responsibility to contact that other carrier directly to inform them that I had taken up employment elsewhere. Perhaps I misunderstood something but without having signed any document nor received any document which indicated that I was a new hire to the company (as I have already received by the company I'll be working for), I didn't think anything was set in place. I'd like to think that I would have understood things differently if I thought it was already established and certain that I had the job. The call I received today is the first that I had received that understanding clearly, and the subsequent hard sell by the agent (who later said he was an effective representative of the company and was responsible for my being "pre hired") was enough to disorient and ultimately dissuade me from changing my mind about my employer.

The employer who I will be working for contacted me later, and I now come to find out that they have a rule where if the driver loads his own trailer, he gets an additional $30 per day. This means that once I am able to do that, I'll earn roughly the same amount now as my wife and I combine to earn from Walmart today. This is after she has been with the company for nineteen years. I think I made the right choice.

Songs were very good today, though this is partly due to the fact that several of the new records came from my second or third play of the given chart. If there's one trend which I can identify of my play in general, it's that my second play usually surpasses my baseline first. This isn't a terribly surprising discovery.
