Nevertheless, it's exciting to think that I have a job. But in the interview, she made the job - cashiering - sound pretty hard, as I have a certain rhythm that I have to pick up. I have to ask customers if they've found everything, if they have their Sobeys card, if they want one, if they want their groceries bagged, etc. And it's scary to think that I have to read all the material in the training package. Still, that's one step up from Tim Hortons, who put me on the job with no training. My training at Timmy's was to stand and know how to use everything, immediately. So that's good to know. Plus, so what if I make a mistake? My mantra right now is "What do I have to fear?" They apparently have an incredibly thorough training program including shadowing (standing beside someone and learning how they do it) and knowing how everything works and stuff like that. The interviewer said it usually takes 3-5 weeks to get through training. Personally, I find going through a long period of training to be a hell of a lot better than having it said to me, "Learn everything! Now! While customers are in line and waiting for their coffee!" Plus, free uniforms. Nice perk. (And hopefully I'll get a name-tag this time! :D)
I didn't tell my flist about this interview, since I've had so many interviews that have led to nothing. And yet, this was what I call a "non-interview" - they explain to you what the job's about, what hours you'll be working, and how the company works, but ask you no questions apart from "Do you have any questions for me?" Every time I've had a "non-interview," it's a good sign, since it means that they're desperate and they don't want to interview anybody.
Oh my gosh, now I'm excited. I was so freaked out when I started writing this, and now my only fear is that training package. Which I will most certainly be able to do. I have a job!
So apparently, I have a job now. Or no. It's training, really, and I have to pick up a training package at Sobeys tomorrow. Because of my terrible last job, I'm reticent about getting a new job, especially since they told me that part-time can go up to 32 hours a week. Which, if I'm continuing throughout the fall, I most certainly cannot do.
