This am the company sent me a huge document to fill out that includes consent for background check and drug test form. I'm not trying to count my chickens here but that has to be good no?

round 2 of the phone interview went great. the hiring mgr told me she is putting my name in to have a face to face interview next week when she is in town.

 

this is all happening so fast i'm like so whats the catch? oh i'm suppose to wear a toga on casual friday's and eat from a trough?

did the face to face yesterday for 2 hrs with 3 dif people. the first mgr said the role you applied for i can tell based on talking to you and your background you would be bored. but this other consultant role I think you would love.

 

i'm gonna take that as a good sign. should find out next week. can be a game changer for the pstall clan if i land it.

 

 

drinks on me somewhere if it goes down baby.

I'm apparently being recruited also. I have my second phone interview today...or the formal phone interview.

 

It would be a side step with much more growth potential....I'm maxed for growth currently.

 

They mentioned a really strong comp package and I basically ignored the statement and continued asking them about how they run their comp.

It will be interesting.

 

I would be working for a boutique MSFT integrator. and running sales for 5 states...I've kind of enjoyed being on the manufacturing side of the house for the last 3 years. Resellers always have me wary.

Not sure exactly what you are saying here, but if you are saying that the middlemen make you nervous, I certainly understand why.

Basically....they are going to throw some serious $$$ at me and at goal it's ridiculous but I'm still hesitant. It's more Account Exec/direct sales vs Business Dev/CHannel Sales

Gotcha.

 

Do what's best for your family and your happiness, and you will be fine.

 

I am going to have to take a step down at some point, even if it means less $$ just because of personal happiness and stress level.

A nice perk of being in IT is that I don't have to negotiate pay.  Recruiters take care of that and they have every reason to press as high as possible.  I usually tell them I want about 10-15K more than I actually think I'll get.
