    Good luck! Hopefully you get one so that we don't have to listen to you whine about being jobless anymore. :kekeke:

    I don't remember whining to anyone about being jobless, I remember poking fun at myself....?
    lol

    first one down, one more to go!
    it went great and being able to start ASAP is a big pro in my favor, since they need someone to start Wednesday ;-)

    CIBC call center for PC financial
    low wage to start but I'm hoping if I get it I will be able to advance past the phones quickly.

    I think I may be the new CFO for a smallish property managment company.....
    Have to call them back today. I hate that I've already given them my salary floor, it's going to make negotiating a better salary a lot harder.

    Any suggestions?

    not sure, the one with CIBC was a phoen interview to see if I could go through to the interview in person.

    the job I have been offered scares me a bit, in that there is a lot to do, software implementation, change overs, full financials, etc.

    I'll be talking to them on Monday about salary, etc and then that will tell me what type of company it is.

    So did you accept the job based on your minimum? If they are set on that, I would suggest that you negotiate a performance based raise after 3 months.

    You will have a good idea of how much work is going to be on your plate after 3 months and they will have a good idea of how well you are handling the work load. If you feel you are worth more than they are paying you at that point, ask for more. Since you are imbedded at that point, and they value you, they will be willing to talk.

    It may be difficult to get more money than what was originally discussed without proving yourself. On the flip side you will never know unless you ask, so go in armed with a few options for them to better position yourself when negotiating.

    Just my $.02, I may be way off.

    my "tittle" is "controller"
    after training for two days and really getting into the position, I had a diccussion with the owners and politly asked them to hire an alternative canidate for the position as the work load and type of work was beyound what I coudl provide to them.

    the rate of pay also turned out to be about 30% lower then I expected(wouldn't budge)

    so I'v committed 30 days of my life to try and hold things together for them and keep the basics running.

    Feel free to flame me for my decision, but I'm glad I made this decision at the get go then after 6-8months of working there.

    Side note, if anyone knows of a very experienced individual with some financial accounting/managment accounting exp that HAS set up a accoutning department before send me some contact information.

    At least you were honest with them and told them up front that it was more than you could handle.
