Hope you're all doing okay. So I haven't posted in a while but I have good valid reasons.
As you maybe know, if you are a regular reader. I'm job hunting at the moment and two/three weeks ago (a lot has happened so I've lost track of my days... don't you hate that!) I had two job offers come out the blue at once. One at my old job at Amazon and the other working in an office.
Both jobs was with two different agency's after going to the Amazon agency, filling in paper work and going to do a drug and alcohol test (everyone was asked to do this, not just me...), then told my starting day I was really happy to be working again. The rang me and told me my starting day had been changed and they would contact me for further information. A week later, they left me a lovely voice mail to say Amazon cannot rehire me again. - Which I wasn't a happy bunny.
Second job opportunity at the office came along during that process with Amazon, now this one has been a bit of a roller coaster, first having to go to a employment program, filling out applications, doing a Health and Safety course and going to a group meeting. They then passed us over to the agency, which when we got there, there was too many people so they had to send some of us home. I had to be one of those people. Then going back another day to do more applications. Then not hearing off them for about a week, with me ringing every so often to see if they had any news on the job. I then got told all the vacancies had been filled, which obviously left me with no hope at all.
Monday just gone, I got a call out of the blue to tell me my application had been sent off to the business I was applying for. By the Wednesday I was told that my application had been successful and I was needed to go into the place of work for a half hour interview to meet the Manager.
I got a call about an hour after that to say I had finally got the job! Yay!!
So after all the rigmarole, I start work on Tuesday, doing nights. Which will be strange as I've never worked nights before.
