Looking for a change

I've been sending my resumé around lately. Ever since my company moved my "home base" an additional 20 miles from my home (for a total of 45), I've grown increasingly estranged with Kraft. But it's not just that. It's also the fact that over the past couple of years we've had our management positions all filled with Nabisco people, resulting in a much colder and more corporate philosophy. And the straw that's breaking the camel's back is the truck. I'm so tired of loading the truck, getting it maintained, defrosting it, etc.

So I went for an interview today with Schwan's. For those not in the know, me interviewing with Schwan's is akin to an employee of Coca-Cola interviewing with Pepsi.
I think it went well. The pay would be about the same, and the job itself is the same...minus the truck. I would work out of my car and not be bound by receiving times. The big concern is that my car insurance would likely skyrocket if I'm using my car for business, but I guess that's why they pay $0.38/mile.

Anyway, I hope I get an offer. I need a change.
