I'm trying to land my first job as a stable hand/apprentice and I want to make sure I'm not being taken advantage of or walking into some trap. I'm a 20 year old girl living on my own, so obviously I have concerns about my safety.
The place I'm interviewing at is a privately owned little ranch with 6 horses. It's several hours away and the owner has suggested that I stay several days for my interview. The guy seems fairly genuine (from what I can tell over the phone) and talks about his wife and kids.
The other day though, the owner asked me for my physical stats (height, weight, etc) as well as what car I drive because we haven't met yet. For some reason, that just didn't sit right with me so I looked the place up on google maps street view and checked to see if there were any possible sex offenders in the area. Nothing else seemed out of the ordinary though.
I'm just wondering if this is the normal process of being hired for a full time live-in position. If you guys could also give me some advice or tips, that would also be appreciated.
