Yesterday I accepted an offer at a different Kitchen & Bath Design firm. I was laid-off last Friday from the place I was working at, due to 0 business. Before I had taken my last job, I had interviewed a few times with the owner of the company I will start working for next Monday, so I already had a solid foot in the door. They are extremely high-end. There might as well be a sign at the door that reads; "If you have to ask, you can't afford it". Which hopefully proves to be a blessing, as the people coming in the door should be self-qualified, which should limit my mucking about with people, trying to get them to discuss budget. Most of what they design & sell is full-custom, so I was concerned that the design software I am used to working with wouldn't be supported by the manufacturers. As it turns out, this is of no concern, as it appears they are, which is a very good thing. Anyways, this is a big step professionally, so I'm rather excited to hit the ground running Monday morning. Oddly, during the interview, the owner showed me the last paycheck that the person I am replacing received just before she left for a place that was much closer to home. The number was astounding, and it appears the people working there make 6 figures, and stay there forever. So, there's that.
