    Thanks guys! Unfortunately some people over here get threatened by hiring people with an MBA degree. I thought I was all set to be hired to manage one of Fitness First's branches last August. The interview went extremely well and I thought it was a sure hire. Then he turns around and tells my friend that he thinks I'm overqualified to be a gym manager!

    Too bad as they are the most aggressive fitness company over here. I might get a chance with Gold's gym though but their projects are for later in the year 2005.

    He viewed me as a threat to one day get his position so that's why he didn't hire me. I spoke to his former boss (working with Gold's now) and she confirmed this.

    Very nice Conan. I didn't realize we had a super-motivated brainiac in our midst...really brings my inferiority complex to the forefront.

    It's a sad day when an employer feels threatened by a potential employee that may someday overtake them on the corporate ladder...

    I think gold's gym would be the job for you. Good luck on the interview. And may the power of greyskull be with you!
