What shop are you trying to get hired at? There is a couple of really good shops in Boise that I use to go to a lot and know some of the people there.

Just dont go more than 200 miles from boise, and you are fine! Im pretty sure snowolf gave the same review of idaho a while ago...stopped for gas, copious amounts of meth heads and skin heads, got the fuck out. Go Idaho!

As a person who frequently interviews people for jobs/ hands out applications for positions, and has to converse with people during the applying process... The big things I would suggest, because they bother me, is make sure you're dressed nicely, well groomed(and bathed), come prepared with pens, and if possible references/ a resume. If someone is coming to me and doesn't have one of those things, i'll usually over look it, but if multiple or all of them are missing, you can practically kiss your chances goodbye.


**added note, silence your phone, or dont bring it with you**

duly noted. However, while not my first rodeo, this one is different from the traditional interview. Im going in for the first time with said reference (while he purchases something specifically from owner) and i am going to first talk to him and ask him then. So dressing up in interview attire would be rediculous. However it will still be very important to look presentable, well groomed and approachable. Bringing at least a resume with just in case is a very very good idea. Thanks for the suggestion. Ill build one specificially for this "meeting" just to be prepared. But in the end who knows, maybe the guy doesn't need any part time help at all. But if there is a chance i am going to attempt to jump on it.
