- Wedding: March 2010
as many of you know, today was my interview for promotion. I’ve been working towards this for the past year and was very excited that this day has finally come. I knew I could ace it so I wasn’t too worried. My boss had given me around 17 questions the other week, told me my DM would ask me all of them, and to be prepared on several other fronts as well.
I worked this morning and then after work I was supposed to drive out to another branch of our store where my interview would take place. Well, DM was running behind so I ended up waiting almost two hours for it to take place.
Finally, it’s my turn. I shake his hand and he tells me he’s going to ask me several questions and that’s about it. He asks why I feel I want to be a shift supervisor, what I feel the duty of that role consists of, and if I could list a difficult conversation I’ve had with someone, a time I received unsolicited feedback, a conflict I’ve had with someone, and a time I failed to meet customer needs. That was it. He didn’t ask any questions that gave me the chance to boast about how strongly I believe in our customer service or the things I do to go above and beyond every day to make sure our customers feel like family.
I’m sure the interview went well. He was talking to my boss afterwards to discuss their thoughts on everything and she’s going to get back to me. I hope she works tomorrow because I was thinking of swinging by to see if she’ll tell me. I just felt like it definitely didn’t go how I was hoping it would. I felt it didn’t really showcase my hard work at all.
P.s. I was going to go out tonight to celebrate, but the girl I was going to go with canceled on me yet again. I think I’m done asking her to hang out on Wed since she cancels every week.
