I think it’s safe to say that this weekend was my last weekend of “freedom.” I had four days off in a row (if you don’t count me going into work on Saturday for three hours, for my shift supervisor test which I got a 98% on!). I was supposed to go in on Monday for my interview with Best Buy but they were pretty swamped, so Andy the HT supervisor rescheduled it for today at 11am.
The interview definitely went well, and while I was spying on his paperwork I noticed that most of the questions I answered were marked with “exceeds expectations.” Quite awesome, but then again, I am pretty awesome so it’s expected. I go in again this week for my 3rd interview with the GM, and then hopefully next week I’ll be starting back up with BB. I’m happy because BB is one of the best jobs I’ve held, and I’m kind of excited to get back in the game with it.
I’ll be going into home theater as opposed to PCHO (Computers) or Wireless. It’s going to be interesting because I don’t have the product knowledge or the technical knowledge with TV’s and Sound systems but I can learn pretty quick. What’s awesome is that they don’t have to worry about training me for Care+ and various other BB elements. Andy also mentioned that my experience will hopefully be taken into account for a pay increase from what I was last making at BB.
The only hard thing is going to be juggling Caribou Coffee and BB since the hours are a bit weird. I might end up taking less Frankfurt hours, and keeping the Monday/Tuesday shift at Tinley, and get more hours at BB. Especially if I’ll get paid more. Eventually I’d like to go back to being FT with BB, since the benefits (and pay!) are a lot better.
Well, time to get going.. Just wanted to hop on for a bit before work, which is 2-9:30. Joy. I hope this store isn’t as dead and boring as people have been saying. If that’s the case, I might just bring a book with, and pray to god that it’s not that dead… Otherwise I’ll be begging Amy to hurry it up on the iBook so I can take it with me tomorrow, and hop on someone’s unsecured wifi to keep myself occupied.
Ohh, and I’ll be going to the White Sox game on Thursday. Definitely going to remember to charge the camera’s batteries before I go, so I can actually get pictures. ‘Cuz I definitely do not consider camera phone pictures to be pictures at all 🙂
