I have got a job online working for kgbkgb.com and will be away most NIGHTS starting around 8 PM Central time till 11 PM Central Time. so if you see my post count degrading a bit you know why!

Hopefully I will enjoy it. it looks like a really fun job and the hiring / training simulation process was fun in and of its self.

Here's wishing you good luck and all the best on your new job, Strapples. Be sure, though, to drop by the WP whenever you can.

finished a shift today. totally logged my brain got overloaded lasted 3 hours but argh... so much random CRAP about sports, sex, drinking, drugs... i thought this service was for LEGIT questions not total BS. I signed up and put my 3 main interests, medical, computers, science...

i got ZERO questions pertaining to the 3, mayyyybe 1-3 but out of 74 questions that is nothing.

it was NOT an enjoyable 3 hours getting battered with questions i can barely answer.

definitely FAR from a dream job.

I plan on giving it another few weeks chance before either A. they fire me because i cant answer their s**t

or B. I quit because it is un-necessary load

A first day on the job can really be overloading. I had three jobs and at the end of the first days I was exhausted.

About the questions... you could get familiar with some subjects or learn to just answer them. Maybe it was just a bad day...

Try to hang on, it probably gets better. And if it does not get better, at least you got some good experience and know what to ask with a next employer.

Sundays shift sucked. late night s**t sucks. i contacted them this morning and had my shift schedule wiped out fo this week. i do late afternoon / early afternoon combo now and I get a combination of good questions mixed with some totally absurd crap.

yesterdays famous one (monday) was a guy who kept texting (and getting charged each time)

"Mind if i masturbate with my gf watching while I text you" and answers ranged from "its your penis do with it what you want" all the way down to "Why wank when you can f**k!"

my answer was "f**k this guy *ban*
