Well, they didn't completely take back the offer, they just said I needed to choose between F&P and Sephora.
All you Millimeters peeps know that I called Sephora to decline and was immediately counter-offered a permanent, full time position.
I'd be crazy not to.
It's guaranteed hours that I'm needing, and it's higher hourly wages than I'm currently making.
I was promised FT at F&P, even if I had to do a shift or two at a different location to get it, and after almost a month I still haven't gotten it.
And, I don't have to give up any mods for it!
They do have a one facial piercing policy, but they said I could wear a retainer in one nostril!
That's awesome! Kind of weird, but it does make sense in a way.. like I can't work at another grocery store for that reason. =/
Whatever though, more money and full time hours!? Why wouldn't you take it? ;D
The ********? How are you going to offer it and then take it back?
It wasn't a flat out take back, it was worded more like, "It's a conflict of interest to work at both, and if you choose to work at F&P we cannot hire you at the same time."
So it's not like they said, "Oh you're with them? LOL SORRY NVM WE DON'T WANT YOU!"
I was kind of grumpy when I posted about it earlier.
Screw being vegan. I'm just vegetarian now. I stopped last night when Patrick went to the store to get me food for dinner and the bread he got had milk in it. I said screw it because I hadn't eaten all day and was so hungry I was on the verge of throwing up.
So I'm making life easier, and Patrick happier, and eating milk and eggs.
Oh also there was a stabbing tonight near my campus. We had an announcement that was all "Please don't go to JH side of campus due to police activity. Thank you." and we were all "THE ********? SIRENS ARE EVERYWHERE" so my teacher ran around and closed all doors.
Got a message on my school website and it was so casual like a "no biggie..classes continued" kind of thing lol
I'm officially hired on at Sephora!
I go in tomorrow to fill out some paperwork and find out when I'll be getting scheduled.
MAKING $12/HOUR ******** YEAHHH!
That's $1.44/hour more than I've been making at Fruits & Passion!
I called the manager and said I've accepted a job elsewhere, and while it sucks to disappoint people, Sephora is going to be so much better.
I have tomorrow off from F&P, then I work Friday and Saturday, and then I'm no longer employed there.
Rachel (my immediate supervisor at Sephora) and Trish (store supervisor) were so excited to bring me on.
Apparently it's a HUGE thing for them to offer a permanent, full time position because they usually hire for the long term.
And they will be flexible with my schedule when I eventually go back to school, which is awesome.
Benefits start after my 3 month probationary period, and it includes medical, dental, life insurance, and disability.
So that's cool.
I don't really mind that I don't have vision on it, I don't have to go back for another eye exam for another year and a half.
