Good news!

I had my interview a couple hours ago and I got the job! I start on Monday. It's not full-time but that's okay for now. I'm so excited! I worked for this company about eight years ago and loved it. I worked with great people and the job was fun. The only reason I left was because I was working another job at the same time and they were offering me full-time with a good benefit package.

So what is this new job? I'll be a delivery driver/cook at a pizza place. Yes, I know that I'm a year away from turning 30 and working at a pizza place is typically a high school job. Guess what? I don't care! I'll get to cruise around in my car listening to music and when I'm at the store, I'll be a cook, which is a ton of fun.

The people that I've met so far are pretty awesome and my boss is great too. The boss I had when I used to work there still works for the company at a different store and my current boss called her to see if I should be hired and she said no cuz' she wanted me back. ha ha I didn't even think she'd remember me! During my interview today, I was asked if I would consider being in management. I take that as a compliment that they are right away thinking of that for me. Yay me! I know, I'm a nerd.

Most of my friends are your age and several work at places just like that. :) I don't think it's weird at all ... also, it might be a nice change from the more 'grownup' jobs for awhile.

Have fun! And congratulations!!

I think it will be a much needed change. The banking world is just too rigid for someone like me!

Eve Noir said...

Yay! So happy to hear that. No, don't think of being a driver/cook as a high school job-when my sis worked at a pizza place a guy was in his 60's working there! ;}

Hope things go well with your dad & be chatting with you soon. Oh & congrats on the award Diane gave you, I got one too! Wooo hoooo!

Diane said...

well, actually, most of the ppl i know work these sorts of jobs. they are either musicians or artists and well,,, still gotta eat. and they actually make great money, considering the amount of hours they work.

i worked as a bartender most of my working career and made awesome money.

i'm not down with the whole corporate thing myself...

congrats! sounds like good birthday karma starting for you already!

i just had to say that the last captcha i got there was AVENGER! it made me feel strangely powerful, if only for a very strange moment...

I've discovered that the older I get, the more emphasis I put on doing what I enjoy rather than what I'm "expected" to do. Congratulations!

Catherine said...

Congratulations! My sister just got a job offer today, too. The employment gods must be smiling down right now.

Eve - Honestly most of the people that I've seen working there look to be in their 30's so I won't feel like I'm in high school again. ha ha Congrats for getting an award too!

Diane aka Avenger - Yep I liked aspects of the corporate world but let's face it...I am so not corporate!

TwasTheBrillig - Thanks!

Halloween - So true!

Catherine - Thanks! Congrats to your sister!

Ghoul Friday - Thanks! I'm so excited!

Congrats, er, again! And don't ever apologize for working. I've delivered pizza myself and even cleaned toilets. Gotta do what you gotta do. Good luck--and have some fun!

Riverwolf - "Gotta do what you gotta do." So very true.
