I saw this ad in the local shopper

Here's the wording in the "help wanted" ad I spotted:

ASSEMBLERS NEEDED

We are a hand assembly facility for a major greeting card company.  (I happen to know it's Hallmark.)

C********* Specialty Products Co. is seeking work oriented applicants for full time employment.  working hours offered are a 4/10's shift M-T 6:00 AM-4:30 PM.  Competitive wage, benefit package, attractive bi-monthly incentive, paid vacation and holiday, good working conditions, climate controlled environment, and music provided.  Apply M-T between 8 AM and 4 PM.

I read this to Cliff and said, "If I weren't baby-sitting the girls, I think I'd check this out."

"WHAT????"  Cliff exclaimed.  "You'd let that little bit of babysitting stop you from taking a job?"

I reminded him that it's unlikely it would work out.  I don't drive, so there'd have to be at least two people from my town working there who are willing to take a paying rider (this place is only 8 miles away).  My knees and feet are a mess, so it would have to be a sit-down job.

When I baby-sat Kody years ago, his mom worked at this place.  I never discussed her job with her, so I don't have a clue about the working conditions.

But I guess I'll go talk to them tomorrow.  It doesn't hurt to talk.

How weird the hours are..  6:00 AM to 4:40? PM?  I've never seen an employer have people stop working at such an off time.  That's actually 10 hrs and 40 minutes.  I guess that must be your lunch time, right?  

Well, good luck, Donna! :)

I thought you retired???  Back to work so sooooon ???  I would love not to have to work.  But have no choice.  4 days would be better than 5, but make sure you'd like it.  'On Ya' - ma
