    9 years, 6 months, 30 days, I was offered a full time job when I interviewed but declined it because I was attending college full time. Not one of the best decisions in my life.

    I turned down the driving job. It took 13 years before it became avaliable to me, but I didn't wanted it. Clerking pays really well after 21 years. Really well!!

    It took me exactly 1 year and 2 weeks to go from unload to FT would have been less but I was not yet 21 when my name got to the top of the list so I got passed over twice until my birthday.
