I finally had the interview yesterday. I think it went really well! They talked for over an hour and a half, and they would say things like, "when you work such and such we will train you" or "you will really enjoy doing this." Sounded like a sure thing, not an "if you get hired."

They invited me back today to follow them around during a shift. Also my cat is getting neutered Friday and they said I can come help.

So, I'm pretty excited. First thing they told me is that my resume was perfect, and that I seemed very intelligent. lol.

It seems like an even better job than I thought. She said they pay well, very flexible days, friendly people, they have potlucks and go out to movies, etc, and I can pick up as many hours as I want. The manager there is just so sweet and delightful. And I believe she gets to pick who is hired, which is good because she knows me. Big Grin

Shifts run from 7 - 12 and 12 - 5. I'm not sure which one I would prefer. I hate getting up early, but I would like to be home before my husband to get dinner started and such. So maybe I'll do some of both.

Also, they noted that I was a web designer, and the owner said, "you are just what we need." They are definitely interested in me redoing their website.

So all in all, I'm pretty excited. But don't want to get my hopes too high. Keep me in your thoughts today. Need to make a good impression.

    Sending best vibes, you sound like a great 'fit.' Sounds like hourly rated work, are there any paid benefits? Do they guarantee a certain number of hours/shifts? I ask because coincidently, I had our dog at the vet n Friday, and noticed two receptionists departing a bit after 9 AM much to my surprise. It seems they come for the 7 AM 'opening' and return for the 4 PM onward, busiest part of day when owners return to pick up their pets. I know the youngest is still a university student and am guessing it fits her schedule.

    Will you negotiate pay, hours and benefits and increase timetable when they call to make their offer? Can't hurt to ask, you can always lower your expectations if necessary but you can't ask for more once you accept their initial offer.

    I hope they pay you via the business to do their web page, on your time of course, as it would not be part of your regular duties.

    Did she tell you when they will let you know? If you work do web design for them at the wages they offer, will that mean they would be getting a big discount as compared to contracting you for web design specifically.

    Good luck! Having you back to follow around during a shift is a good sign.
