The company I interviewed with twice last week called this morning and offered a full-time position. I am not sure when I will actually start, since they still have to go through the background check and all that, but I will be wandering in tomorrow to fill out paperwork. I think I will be there for a few hours, though I am not quite sure what all I will be doing. I will have to make arrangements to get my UW transcript to them. I have one coming to my home, so I hope they will take that sealed envelope.
This led me to send messages to the two people I have been communicating in regard to a potential part-time position. I thanked them repeatedly for the opportunity to come in and talk with them and explained that I would be pursuing another opportunity. One of them sent a message back along the lines of, “Good luck. I wish we had a full-time position to offer.” I do, too, to be honest. I feel a little bad and hope they have another candidate in mind, because I know they have been calling references and such. A family friend who I listed as a reference called me yesterday afternoon to tell me that she had just gotten off the phone with them. I wish them the best in finding a good candidate.
This new job will present a variety of challenges. I am not really familiar with Loss Prevention, other than the glimpses I got while in the Air Force. That usually came with us hauling in the shoplifters and then calling their chain of command to come get them. It will be a learning experience, that is for certain, but I am excited for it.
I do hope I will not have to worry about telling them I cannot work Sunday. I was told last week my work days would likely be Friday through Monday. Mom and I have been planning for weeks to see the Tulip Festival in Skagit County this weekend. We have friends coming along with us, too. I hope that there is a little flexibility. We will see.
