This morning I grudgingly got up. Last night was not a good night for sleep. This might be because I came home early yesterday and had a nap. I am NOT a napper. I always wake up grouchy and tired. So it hurt to get up this morning.
I was on the fence on how to dress for an interview where the employees don’t dress up or wear a uniform. This is my first experience with this since all of my previous jobs have been in an office. So I picked out this patterned dress on the right. It is very flattering and hides my sins!!
I get to the interview 10 minutes early. The guy who is supposed to be interviewing me was not there yet. So I wait around in the store looking a various cards. A few minutes after the time my interview was to start I was approached by a woman. She said that she would be the one to interview me. She takes me to the back, chatting all the way.
Once in the office she doesn’t tell me anything I don’t already know about the job. She did tell me all about her life. 🙂 Knowledge I am not sure what to do with. Did I really need to know that she kicked out her daughter when she was 16? Or that she is the store’s oldest employee?
I give her my resume and references. She told me that she would pass it on to another person not the guy I was originally supposed to interview with. Apparently he is leaving the company so he has started to slack off a bit.
Anyhoo, I smiled, we chatted a bit some more and then I was out the door. The ‘interview’ lasted less than 15 minutes. I have no idea whether I will get the job or not. The lady I spoke with did say she would put in a good word for me.
So we will wait and see.
I am still on the fence as to whether or not this is even a feasible possibility for me to work two jobs. But it’s just 6 weeks …
