This will probably be long and I apologize for those that do get through it. I went to school and got my degree in Early CHildhood Education. I graduated in 2009, could not find a teaching job and found my way into the great world of retail. I promised myself it would be a year and I would be out.
Well four years later, I still hold my job in retail. I renew my teaching license when it needs to be done because I still hope I will find a teaching job. I was lucky enough to have gotten a teachers aide position last spring and was able to reduce my hours at the retail store to one day a week.
Well school is out and I am unsure if I will be asked back to the aide position in the fall because of budget cuts. Which makes me really sad, cause I love that job. But I am back to my retail job full time now.
Today I got a text from my retail boss. She had a big meeting with her big boss. And I have been asked to become a co-manager. I hesitate to say yes though. Pros: more money, new challenge, more responsibility. Cons: less time with FH, schedule would be all over the place, morning, mid shift or night shift is possible, my department has lots of trouble makers in it and I am not sure how they would handle me as a boss, and i always said i never wanted to be a manager.
It seems like any time anyone who was just a regular employee moves to a manager position in my store, their head swells and they become terrors. I don’t want this to happen to me. Also, I would feel bad if I took the position and then in September had to leave to go back to being an aide. Plus, I am getting married this summer. Just a lot going on.
But the big boss wants me in this position. She specifically told my boss I would be the absolutely best fit for the position. How awesome is that? FH wants me to see how much more money it would be and what my hours really would be. I just hate not knowing what to do…….I just needed to vent. I can’t talk to any of my friends because most work with me or know people I work with and I am not allowed to tell anyone at work about the offer yet.
