    refusing to file for unemployment is foolish, stubborn, and egocentric.

    you paid for it, you need to use it.

    try to find something soon. today. don't wait until your last day. if you find something new, start work the day after your last job and get 2 weeks pay for free.

    That sucks man, sorry to hear. At least it wasn't after only 2 days because (and I quote) "We don't think you'll be happy here."

    ... because I asked a question.

    Welcome to the club. Sorry to hear it, it sucks, but life goes on.

    And I agree on the unemployment. You and your employer pay into it.

    sorry to hear about your job loss.
    Don't be too "proud" to collect unemployment.
    I think you can collect for a full year now before your benefits run out.

    Depends on how many cars you sell. They mostly work off commission. I'm sure the base hourly rate differs from dealer to dealer.

    My brother sells cars, pulls around 350k a year. He is damn good at it though, like he was born to do it. When he first started he was pulling 100k

    If you're good, you take home six figures.

    If you're not good, you don't eat.

    That's the way of sales. I'm not in car sales, but I am in sales.

    I'm 23, just out of college and set to make MBA money in my first full year out. I was guaranteed certain amounts, but a good $25-35k of my income is as a direct result of my efforts.
