Re: The "Good News" thread

Well done Kitty! Go girl!

I am happy because I have managed to sell my horsebox (truck/wagon). It is being collected on Sunday and the money went into to my back account today.

Re: The "Good News" thread

To me this seems a company that will bring more trouble than fulfilment.
I hope that will not happen to you.

Re: The "Good News" thread

Did you mean this page? Because that's not them.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ark-Promotions/252064094895755

This is them, and their website:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/ARK-Promotions-Ltd/216776235057338

http://arkpromotions.co.uk/

And I find it hard to believe that you would be concerned for me.

Re: The "Good News" thread

Another company with a very similar name and location?
https://www.facebook.com/pages/ARK-Promotions-Ltd/216776235057338
checking this link - is this your new company? I'm confused now.

Re: The "Good News" thread

The first one appears to be based in California...the one I'm with is Manchester, UK.

Is my happiness such a big problem for people? I never realised...

I've decided it doesn't matter. I'm looking forward to Monday and nobody is going to spoil that for me http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: The "Good News" thread

Kitty, I don't think your happiness is a 'problem' for people per se. There is sometimes a confusion between concern for someone's well-being and this being interpreted as interference or negativity. This is ever more so on the Internet when there are no visual clues or tone of voice etc.   

I really do hope your new job goes well for you and that you, having researched the company prior to the interview process etc. are happy with their company profile, activities and what is going to be asked of you.

Re: The "Good News" thread

Congratulations, Kittycat. I just read their home page. Do you know what it is exactly that they are selling in "direct marketing"?
I hope all goes well. Research is always a good idea. Read your contract and be careful.
Just saying. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: The "Good News" thread

Believe me, I've done a lot of research. And I was there twice.

Be, they have different campaigns going on. They have contracts with companies (such as energy suppliers) and we go door-to-door to basically promote it and try to get people signing up. And the people there are so nice http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: The "Good News" thread

So do you get paid for each contract or is there a fixed payment each month?
And you are still studying, right?

Re: The "Good News" thread

It's commission-based, but it's rather nice and easy to earn. And I'm still at uni for another 4 weeks, it's all sorted out http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
I just work 4 days a week until I finish.

They are quite accommodating, actually. And the morning meeting that I witnessed...it was a really great atmosphere http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png
Looks like a fun bunch of people!

Re: The "Good News" thread

Congrats on finding a job, kittykat The most important is that you like it there! I'm presently looking for a job, which is quite frustrating uhhh! because it's kinda hard to find one in my neighbourhood and just there're not many offers :|

Re: The "Good News" thread

I am happy because I am now working for myself. My new little cottage industry is doing much better than i had ever anticipated. Today I have taken my first order for some rhythm beads (used on horses) without even trying and I have just finished making a beautiful black rope halter with orange reflective braiding and little buttons on the side, with matching reins. I know...I just know...that my customer will love it when she sees it. That makes it so worthwhile. The money is nice eh! But knowing the pleasure it gives people to receive these bespoke items is just a fantastic feeling. All the more so because I have literally taught myself how to do every single aspect of making these (than god for YouTube and the Internet!). My Facebook page is up to 1,500 likes and I have made over 300 items since July. I am just, frankly,  amazed!
