So I forgot to mention I think in my last blog post that I had a job interview today at one at Best Buy. I applied there as an after thought kinda. They hadn't posted an ad or anything, but Chad wanted me to, so I did.
It was weird because they did a group interview. So there were three other applicants there. But at the same time, it was fun, we kinda learned about each other and there was a lot of joking around and laughing. I think the interviewers used it as a way to make things less formal and see what our personalities were like. Then they did individual interviews. So the guy said at the end that if they were interested, I would get a call back by Friday at 5. Well apparently they called back before I even got home. I didn't even see the message. Chad noticed it was blinking later on but it was after they closed. Anyway. I have another interview tomorrow (Thursday) at 6pm.
It sounds promising, but like the others I'm not getting my hopes up. At least I have a better shot because they are hiring a bunch of people for seasonal. They also said that they usually keep about 75% of their seasonal people, so come January I could be a regular employee if they like me and I do well. I don't think honestly that will be an issue.
Overall I think I wouldn't have thought that I would like it there, but after the interview, and meeting a bunch of people, it seems like a great place to work, and I really am hoping that I get to!
No more news though other than that. I'm sure I'll post again when I find out.
Until then... here are a few pics of some yarn I got in a trade (yes another trade, and I've got several others in the works!) from Ravelry. I traded 3 balls of pretty pink kidsilk haze and got this:
A skein of Baruffa Cashwool in light pink. It's lace, well more of a cobweb weight. Pretty though and really soft!One skein of Lorna's Laces in Georgetown. I'm going to make those lace mitts that I showed a few posts back with it.And two skeins of Artyarns Ultramerino 4. It's more teal than blue, darn flash. It's nice and soft and squishy though! Yay sock yarn!
That's it, gnite!
