Has anyone worked for a contract position before and actually got kept on as permanent? I'm looking into this contract job that is 8 months and it pays $18 and hour and its full time. I currently have a full time job that is $13 an hour. I just want some answers. It's a customer sales job and I don't know if it's a good idea or not. They said it would be base on perfomance and perfect attendance to be kept on. They said it's just selling stuff to businesses and its inbound calls.
