Say you need to think about it/talk it over with Fiance and you’ll get back to them next week.  If the offer’s there, the offer’s there.  Depending on the type of job, ask for an offer letter outlining salary/benefits/etc?

I would look at both options. You never know which one will pan out. 🙂

I would continue to apply for other jobs, especially full-time ones with benefits.  What did you go to school for?

@roweboat:  Oh yeah that makes sense.  

I think any job that requires you to work over Christmas isn’t worth it, but I know that’s not practical.  What kind of hours would Walgreens require?  Do you think you have a good chance for the bank position?  I assume the bank will pay more.  Does either offer benefits, and do you need benefits?

Tell Walgreens you’ll take the job, and go to the bank teller interview too. If you don’t get the bank teller job, then you still have the Walgreens one. If you get the bank teller job, then tell Walgreens you’re sorry, but I better offer has come up.

It’s just a PT retail job, so I wouldn’t worry about it much. Do what’s best for you.

@roweboat:  Any job that makes an adult work every holiday is one that someone with any education should say no to.  That’s insulting to you as someone who worked hard to get your AA, and especially as someone who is going back to school.  

I worked in a gourmet grocery store all through college, and the managers were ASSHOLES to me and the other college students who worked there.  Their attitude was like, “Why do you think you’re better than other people?”  Um, no, we did not think we were better…we just knew that our lives would not be dedicated to working in a grocery store.

Are you kidding me??? What about doctors, nurses, paramedics? All those people are educated, and they have to work holidays, because guess what, people don’t stop getting sick or dying because it is Christmas/Thanksgiving/etc. As someone who’s husband is an educated health care worker, I find your response close-minded and extremely insulting. These people choose a career where they have to make personal sacrifices (with respect to time with their families) to be able to help others. You can’t assume if you are educated that you are too good to work holidays, or better than anyone who does. I hope you never have need of any of these type of services on a holiday, because you certainly don’t have the type of attitude that deserves their hard work.

@bowsergirl:  +1. Keep the Walgreens job as a backup plan. Working on Christmas does suck, but sometimes you just have to suck it up and do it because it’s better than no job at all.

@ChemistryBride:  Slow clap.

@peachacid:  I don’t understand how it is”insulting” to be asked to work as a job that you applied and interviewed for? Working on Christmas is not desireable, but just because someone has an eductaion, they are certainly not too good for a job…especially in this economy.

Thats a bit of a dilema. Good luck with it, I’m sure you’ll make a good choice.

Sorry…. I don’t know what AA is… can someone fill me in?

ETA: OOOOooooh, is it administrative assistant?
