Default Re: I'm pretty confident i did that quiet well.

Yeah he did say i got the best out of the 15 entrants on the theory test, and the fastest and best write up on the practical examination - just my lack of actual 'shopfront' experience and apparently slightly lacking enthusiasm (by this point in the day, getting up bright and early was seeming like a mistake, tired as hell).

Just waiting to see if i got it now, the waiting is easily the hardest part.
Wow you must be pretty smart then.

Well at least you're modest about your intellect.

Sorry you didn't get the job. My understanding is that Geek Squad really wants you to be a salesman first, technical skill is secondary.
