I got called for two jobs this week!

one is for a drink server at the casino which is on the other side of town and I really don't want to spend the money on bus transportation (60$ a month) and you have to pay for your gamblers working license and test out of your paycheck.

and they are getting table games in march and you can't play there and be an employee and I have a serious hankering for poker. haha.

BUT

brueggers bagels called and they want an inteview tomorrow! For a shift supervisor (they train and i was previously a shifty elsewhere for 2-3 years.) and it pays 10$ an hour. (I made 7.14 at my highest at my other shifty job. it was pathetic)

I have been on disability for FIVE YEARS. I am ready to go back to work. My field is hair and i"m applying for a job with that too but I dont' think I can really pass up this shift supervisor position and just HOPE that I get the hair job.

I'm really nervous. I have been on like...2 interviews in five years, both this year, wish me luck!

Good luck! I suggest looking for interview questions online (I googled interview questions) and then answering them. I practiced each one out loud until I thought I had it right! I found out I was making a lot of interview mistakes without even knowing (Not saying you are).

Never hurts to brush up!

Good luck, and I have not heard of Brueggars since I lived in Syracuse, seriously great bagels and even better cream cheese, thank goodness there isn't one here. But like anywhere, I am sure if you work with it daily it's the last thing you want to eat.

Rock the interview!!

Don't be nervous. If they called you then they see something in your resume they like. My youngest son worked at a casino for five years and there seemed to be a lot of opportunities for advancement, unlike the bagel place. So, you'll have to weigh the long term opportunities.Does the bus company have a monthly pass? In any case, good luck on going back to work!

actually brueggers listed "opportunities for advancement" on their ad. hehe. the monthly pass is 60$. :(

thanks so much everyone! :) I got terrible sleep cuz I'm so excited but am trying to not pay attention to it so much. :P
