I have two job interviews tomorrow and one on Thursday! Hang on a sec... (dancing a little jig) ok, I'm back. One of the interviews is at Borders bookstore. I'm kinda excited about that one because, I mean, who doesn't want to work at a bookstore?? As you, my 4 loyal readers know, I am a reader, man. I loooooove to read. When I was a kid, I would read the back of the cereal box at breakfast. I'll read anything. But, with anything, there are pluses and minuses of working at Borders.
PLUS: Very flexible hours
MINUS: Very sad pay
PLUS: They loan their employees books, so I can read brand new bestsellers without buying them!!
MINUS: It's retail - hours on my feet and did I mention the very sad pay??
PLUS: I am always recommending books to people at Borders anyway, they may as well pay me for it!
MINUS: Did I mention the very sad pay??
So, the question is, do the pluses outweigh the minuses? I dunno. We'll have to see when I have my interview!
I also have an interview at a Spa (oooh, ahhh). If they give employee discounts, I'm probably in trouble... "You want to pay me in free facials, manicures, pedicures and massages? OK!" It's a very high-end spa, so that might be fun. I'd probably meet some celebs, which is ALWAYS fun...but I know nothing about the hours or the pay.
My third interview is at Wells Fargo to be a teller. 30 hours a week. That might be interesting, and the pay will probably be good. I dunno if I'm cut out to be a teller...but ya never know.
I am also applying to be a substitute teacher at the public schools around here. I figure with 80 gazillion schools, they could probably keep me working all day every day if I wanna. AND I won't have to work holidays, AND I'll be off Spring Break, AND if I need a day off, I just refuse a job. Seems like a good plan to me. I think it might be combat pay, especially in the High Schools, but I suspect it will be interesting.
So, my options are wide open and it looks like I can be whatever I want when I grow up. It's exciting to have opportunities, and it will be fun having these interviews over the next couple of days. Stay tuned, sportsfans!!
