Day One at Best Buy

Well I just got home from my first day at Best Buy and I’m not entirely sure what to think of it. It could be really a lot of fun and really quite cool or on the other hand it could be a complete pain to do everyday…. what I am sure of is that it’s not good enough to keep me from looking for other things in the mean time but it’ll definitely be nice to be receiving a paycheck again.

Today I didn’t really do anything of any significance. I did all the usual first day things getting a security badge, keys to the lab, etc. Spent some time looking up prices of DVD Burners for the classroom and sat in on a product demo for some of the buyers of new upscaning DVD players (they convert a regular DVD to HDTV… did a pretty good job at it too but I wouldn’t pay $299-$499 just to get a smidge higher quality).

Random side note for the Ole’s out there…. the on campus Caf is run by Bon Appetite.

New Job, New Website Design

Well I could have posted this on Friday but I just didn’t get around to it until now. Starting on Wednesday I’m going to be working again (I was laid off from Wells Fargo Home Mortage on December 1st) this time in the Best Buy testing labs at the corporate offices in Richfield, MN. It’s just another temp job via Prostaff but it’s a hell of a lot better than daytime TV.
