Here are some of the quotes from the interviews!!!!
1. BEFORE even giving me his sales pitch etc. "What are you paying"( Mind you this is from a 19 year old guy who shows up in mommies BMW)
2. "What do you do here" (Another 19 year old who was too lazy to do some research on the shop)
3. "I am an underwater welder but I cant weld on dry land" ( 20 year old)
4. I ask what fabrication skills do you have. Response= " I fabricated all my suspension on my car." ( As he leaves the parking lot the torque arm falls off due to a faulty weld)
5. The best one so far!!!!
Guy= "What are you offering as a starting pay?"
Me= "Pay is based on experience, how much do you have?"
Guy= "None but I am a college student and my professor of business says you should pay me between 18.00 and 20.00 per hour as a training position."
Me= After getting up off the floor from the laughter I respond, "You are paying for college so in this instance I charge $26.00 per hour to teach you, so if I pay you $20.00 per hour then you still owe me $6.00 per hour."
So Jakes dad you can see I am still looking.
