    Yeah they will give you like 125 dollars and you cover the rest. Basically what a bus ticket would cost is how much they give you

    1. STAY OFF THE GRASS!!!!!

    2. They watch your every move. They want you to act like a professional

    3. The lunches are pretty good except the pasta and meatball day. Pasta sauce is not supposed to be orange. Ehh, maybes its cause im from jersey and we have real italian food.

    Just a thought. If you like any of the food the lady makes for lunch, tell her that you did like it. She was rather extatic when i said I liked it. Led to bigger portions and more dessert! :) lol

    So, it's been a week....how's it going? What do you think so far? My husband got a call from a recruiter today and to be honest, we thought the guy was a little *too* convincing but now, after being on the message boards and reading this post, along with several others, we're thinking....what the heck? I thought if it sounded too good to be true it must be...... So, what are your thoughts thus far? Granted, it's pretty early in the game but now may be the perfect time to know if you've got any "buyers remorse" as it were. ;-)
