EDIT:WOAH sorry this is so long!
Ok so I’m a waitress, as a few of you may know. I have been so miserable at my job. I’ve been taken advantage of, and mistreated for months now. But I couldn’t quit because I needed the money!
I’m graduating college TOMORROW and I have been seriously searching for a job (applying to at least one a day) for over a month. I really wanted an office job, something more professional.
Yesterday I got a call from an Optometrist’s office/glasses store asking me to come in for an interview today at 11:30. I was excited, but nervous!
I went in today and noticed there were quite a few girls in there also applying/having interviews. So as I was waiting, I noticed many girls were in and out of their interview quite quickly. They called me in, and it began…
I was in there for a very long time! All my nerves kind of melted, and I was just able to be at ease and talk for awhile! There were 2 female managers in there, and they both were so so so nice. They were joking around together like they were family, and I just kind of fell in love with them. After the interview they told me that they were going to be doing interviews for the rest of the week, and that they would call those they liked back for a second interview with the big boss next week. So I said my goodbyes, left the office and called my mom to let her know how it went (she wanted to know).
While I was on the phone with her, my other line rang and it was the office again! I answered and they said: “Hey, so this may sound weird but we were talking with (the big boss) after you left, and we just really liked you a lot. Is there any way you could turn around and come back for your second interview NOW?”
I got so excited and said yes!! And came straight back.
So long story short, I had my second interview and they called me about an hour later to offer me the job. I start MONDAY. Holy schmoly can you believe it!?
The thing is, it is a sales/customer service job. I have never done sales! After training, I will only get paid like 8 dollars an hour plus commission. Now, the guy did say that if you don’t even try hard to sell you can average an extra 4 dollars an hour from commision, and if you really try you can double that. So that is good money, right? (I mean for a 21 year old?) I am scared I won’t be able to do it….
Do any of you sales bees have tips!??? I just had to share this with the bee. I really hope I can make decent money with this (at least better than I’m making now).
I WISH ALL OF MY FELLOW JOB SEARCHING BEES LUCK!!!!!!!!!
