Well, in my desperate state of unemployment, I've put in applications and sent in resumes to just about everyone....from construction management(my field) to retail chains, photography stores, to warehouse companies, lawn and garden centers, even to people needing a receptionist( yeah, ...i did. )... and today I got my first real call-back.... Olan Mills. Photographer job. Don't know what it pays( probably not what I was making). Don't know how they do things. I have heard that you work some long hours, and I have read some pretty poor reviews/impressions from people who have had portraits done there. Now, I'm looking for advice....but you professional folks that do a helluva lot better job than any chain could, please spare me any " I hate Olan mills" stuff you may have ready to spring. It's not my first...second....fifth choice by a long shot. But it is a job. Like any large company, I'm sure alot depends on the people in the management chain you're working under. Anyway, if anyone out there has a level-headed but honest opinion about them either way...or maybe someone out there has or does work for them and hates/loves it, could you please help me out. I'm going to call them back tomorrow unless there's a general concensus that I shouldn't... I know, I'm asking strangers for advice, but as a whole there are alot of folks on here that seem pretty down-to-earth and sensible. Keep in mind that my search for a job has gone nowhere, and my unemployment benefit runs out in 2 months. After that, I can afford to take a job delivering pizza at $7 an hour and it'll be better than nothing. Thanks guys.
