Thanks. Yeah sounds pretty typical retail. On that end there's absolutely nothing i cant handle im sure. I would ask you how your manager liked it and all but from what i understand the company and upper management has changed drastically since you worked there so her experience could vary wildly from what mine might be.
If the 47k average a year is accurate for chicago area, it would be worth the pay cut for the change of scenery, easier commute and just to get me the hell out of United Airlines. Ive read a couple reports of people getting offers under 40 which anything near there is just way to drastic a pay cut for me.
Like i said, im not really sweating it cause i just sort of applied for the hell of it last night, right now im considering any opportunity though that seems like it might make me a little happier in my day-to-day.
