I was faced with this quandrum when I was 19 years old. I saw an ad in the newspaper looking for bill collectors. So I called. The base salary was pretty shitty, but there was the ability to make commission so I signed up. My first day I was shocked to see that I was one of the youngest people there. 10 years later I'm still doing it (though many use it as a stepping stone on to bigger and better things) and I came to realize that I was pretty lucky to have stumbled upon it. For the simple reason that without a college education and the lack of desire to sell shit, I can make more money doing this than anything else. At this stage in my career I don't actually dial phones anymore, but hands down you can make up to around 60k a year doing it. If you're money motivated, and don't mind hearing the words **** off, it's worth a look in your area. Guaranteed to be openings in any major city in America.

No no no no no no no no. They haven't done that shit since like the 70's look up 3rd party collection agencies in KC. You go to an office wearing a shirt and tie (Some places are casual) and make phone calls all day. It's not a difficult job at all.

That's not entirely true. You also have to put your detective hat on and use the tools given to you to track down people who don't want to be found. That was my favorite part about the job. I find myself often doing it today to help some of my less experienced collectors make some money.

Mr. Flopnuts
07-14-2006, 05:54 AM
While I'm running my mouth about this, I will say should you pursue it you can expect a starting salary of around $12 hr plus commission. That will go up quite a bit as you become more experienced. If you're just happy to make $12 hr though, it's not the job for you. You will need to have the drive to put the work in, in order to make an above average income.

Tattoos and piercings are just some of the things I've seen in agencies. Hair is never an issue. You may have to wear a shirt and tie and slacks. Otherwise it won't hamper your personal life. No drug tests (mostly), no criminal background checks (mostly, though this is increasing). You would probably enjoy the job. It really gave me a sense of accomplishment the first few times I got a commission check for a few grand. It was a lot of scratch for me at 19 years old. I took to the job like a fish in water, but I was HUNGRY for an opportunity.

I was spammed by this company today. Looks promising. You've been a bartender so you're already quasi-sales. I agree w/flopnuts. If you can sell, you don't need a college degree and you'll make more money than the 9 to 5ers.

Well, with no college.....though the hours suck, how about restaurant/hotel management? Decent money, if you can get in the right job. It is, as others have mentioned, a good segway into sales....if you can stomach that.

Otherwise, construction jobs pay pretty well....computer/customer service jobs with corporations (banks, telecommunications outfits, etc.) pay okay to start, but often have decent benefits....and good job growth potential, if that's your cup-of-tea.

What about jobs with the city/state/local government? Good benefits, decent pay to start, and often they provide a "foot-in-the-door" to higher paying and better jobs after you've proven yourself.

If you can get a union job in some industry, those do pretty well for those with no college education...

I checked my contacts for Mecca to see if I had anyone in KC that could get him in the door working collections. Everyone I knew has moved on, or out of the industry. My experience lies solely in that field. 60k is an attainable figure to make, but it's not guaranteed. It's salary plus commission. Highest guaranteed money I've seen for collectors is 40k but it usually entails some pretty extensive experience. Anyone with a business degree can do better, I was just trying to help him find a niche for himself and an opportunity to make a good income without the education. I don't have a degree myself, but with the experience I have in that industry and climbing through the ranks I do okay for myself. Definately the most money you can make outside of sales without a college degree. Or at least an extremely strong business acuman.

OK. So I know that Dale is a Winnetonka alum of mine. You must've gone there too. I grew up in Gracemor myself.

Being older and wiser now, may I suggest what my dad did for me when I was your age and ignored him? Get a government job. It's the only company left that will still honor their pension when you're older. I knew a guy down the street from you that became a postal worker. Probably retired at age 45 by now. What the hell was his name Dale? He lived in Claycomo behind the McDonalds. I wanna say somebody Gordon.

I was faced with this quandrum when I was 19 years old. I saw an ad in the newspaper looking for bill collectors. So I called. The base salary was pretty shitty, but there was the ability to make commission so I signed up. My first day I was shocked to see that I was one of the youngest people there. 10 years later I'm still doing it (though many use it as a stepping stone on to bigger and better things) and I came to realize that I was pretty lucky to have stumbled upon it. For the simple reason that without a college education and the lack of desire to sell shit, I can make more money doing this than anything else. At this stage in my career I don't actually dial phones anymore, but hands down you can make up to around 60k a year doing it. If you're money motivated, and don't mind hearing the words **** off, it's worth a look in your area. Guaranteed to be openings in any major city in America.

Please quit calling me, I will pay that $10 over due video bill to Blockbuster soon as I give blood down at the center.

There was a study done one time that I read about the relationship of utility and money. It was shown that money bought happiness up to 45K in most cases.

If you've got that much time in retail, I don't see why you aren't putting that to use at one of the big 5 retailers....

Target, Wal-Mart, Sears/K-mart, Kohls, or even Lowes are always looking for someone to put in the Management program.

Heck, my brother worked for TruGreen/Chemlawn for 7 years...got tired of all the hassle and left them for the Management program at Target. Took less money but knew the benefits were better, and the promise greater. He says it's the best move he ever made.

It took me a few years, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Well here is your problem....

The last thing you do, coming in as a beginner to the workforce, even with your Degree is start immediately in insinuating that you're not interested in doing what the job requires.

So many young people expect to start out in Middle management, leapfrogging people that have the same degree and 5-10 years experience.

There are very few jobs(fulltime) that only require 40 hours.....and if you're on salary....forget about it.

All your degree does, is get the magic word on the resume' to get your foot in the door for an interview. Then, your job is to convince the employer that you're both capable and willing to do the job.

Maybe you should just Hoist a keg over your head outside of a major corporation...

I think alot of it is luck and who you know really. Basically, only who you know. I have a friend who went to a semester of college then failed out, and is a total idiot not only intellectually. Worked a few years at a grocery store as a pee-on produce manager making like 9-10 dollars an hour, then got fired for doing 16 year old cashiers. Then some how found a way to get a job as a "sales rep" delivering pizzas and frozen foods to Wal-Mart, grocery stores, etc. He just shows up and goes, here is your shit, what do you want next time. It isn't really even sales, it's mostly automatic ordering and they gave him a pre-existing route. He makes 48K doing this job 35-40 hours a week. He doesn't even have people skills. I tell ya it's amazing.

Shit like this wonders why I busted my ass the last four years pumping up my resume and getting a 3.6 gpa.

I get back in town in a few days, you should give me a game.

Well, with no college.....though the hours suck, how about restaurant/hotel management? Decent money, if you can get in the right job. It is, as others have mentioned, a good segway into sales....if you can stomach that.

Yeah, I know you said "no McDonalds," but have you considered McDonald's management? These aren't the best jobs, but they are jobs, you aren't on the bottom of the totem pole, you have custoemr service experience, and it might be a segway into bigger and better management type positions.

I like this attitude. You should be doing well in life. I guess you found something since you are still the resident draft spert???



I read this thread and didn't pay much attention to the date. I was think ... man jobs are difficult to find now days and what's with everyone giving him a hard time of "if you want a job you can find one." Then I saw the date and went okayyyyyy.

I'm with Skip ... how did the job search turn out for both of you? Not looking for secret details but just in general ... how'd it go?

Wow, where'd you pull that quote up from? That must of been about 3.5 years ago when I started posting. I have a good job now - but I don't feel manly. I should be outdoors with a shovel or an axe chopping down big trees or something.

Mecca doesn't drink or do drugs.

All he does is grow his hair and study game film.

And occasionally, bang hot sluts from the internets.

He has a very cool temper, handles taking shit very well. A company could do a lot worse, than hiring him in customer service IMO.

Wasn't Kevin looking for a new Denver transplant?

I havn't read through this thread to see if someone has already posted this so forgive me if it has.

Mecca, most all of us know you have long hair. Dude if you want a good job in this economy appearance goes a long ways. People judge on first looks , we all do to some extent. I suggest getting a real haircut and dressing nice when checking out these potential jobs.

I know how proud you are of your long mane but it will grow back i promise you.

And it won't be the end of the world.

Good luck

Can I be the new target for this thread since it's two years old?

Here's my situation:

I'm 25, married and recently laid off. I have more than five years of journalism experience, mainly in newspapers -- specifically sports -- and some marketing and public relations experience.

I put most of my effort in the four years at Kansas State focusing on my journalism career. Turns out, the newspaper industry is burning to the ground, and there's little to no job security, even if you're lucky enough to find a media outlet that will hire you.

So I'm really trying to highlight my marketing/pr experience to potential employers, but so far, little to no bite.

I'm being fairly picky in my search, however. My wife has a good job, and our living expenses are minimal. We're willing to relocate pretty much anywhere, if the right opportunity surfaces.

I have excellent written and verbal communication skills. I consider writing and editing my strongest skills. I'm good with people, but not great in my limited experience with sales.

Thanks for reading. If you know of anything, I'd love to hear from you.

What's funny is that medicine is practically socialized as it is now, those of us that can afford to pay have to pay more to make up for the deadbeats that don't pay their medical bills.

Congrats! But, I knew you would do well. BTW, I like your character ... when you said you didn't need a million dollars ... but, enough to support a modest lifestyle. Sounds like you will have a more fulfilled life!!!

The quote is from the thread. I read it coz I only saw 7/14 and didn't realize it is 3 years old. He actually said those things.

I quoted Mecca. Admirable character traits. He says he doesn't drink or use dope. I think guys like that can excel in life. Thus, my curiosity if he found a good job or not? Or, is he another Clay ... still living with & mooching off his parents??? Which will call into question all those statements???

It was never like that for me. So I quit.

I didn't go to college....I basically don't have alot of experience in anything other than bartending/customer service type things. I mean I have some odd job type of skills like I can type well or pick up heavy things. And right now my interest is pretty open to most anything.

Does wherever you live have labor ready (I know PA has it)? It's basically a system where a company who needs some extra hands doing some non-training required stuff (i.e. mopping/sweeping/cleaning, pack stuff) can get some labor. The company doesn't have to pay benefits or anything, but labor ready does. Also, if the company likes you, after 90 days, you can be hired full time...

http://www.laborready.com/

I guess it's like a temp service but I know the company I work for is looking at hiring 3 of our labor ready full time after they are through their 90 days. You don't seem like a retard, so I think you would be that type of worker that would get hired.

Exactly, never dog anybody that's working anywhere, doing anything.....at least they're working. It would be a lot easier sitting at home drawing government assistance and snorting meth.

Hell, a few years ago I went from making 70K/year to working for a little over minimum wage. I'm back in the saddle now, but it took me damn near a year before I found what I was looking for.

He got a job in a mail room at a large company, and then noticed that a corner office was vacant. So he set up shop in the office and the bigwigs assumed that he was a new vice-president that they didn't know about, so they accepted him and started giving him work, and then he fell in love with the beautiful daughter of the CEO, and he had to juggle delivering the mail with being the face vice-president and hilarity ensued, but eventually he married the girl and now lives in an enormous mansion.

Er...no, wait. I'm thinking of an old Mecca J. Fox movie.
