The Waiting Game

I had my interview with Sears Portrait last Wednesday. It seemed like everything went great. I was told that he would start calling people back starting on Monday. A close friend had an interview on Monday and said it sounded to her like she would be getting a job offer as well. He told her that if he hadn't called her back by Friday, to give him a call on Monday to see what is going on.

I called him today to let him know I was available for training during the week, all except on the 3rd of October. At first he didn't seem to know who I was, so I had to throw in "I interviewed with you last week." And then he just said, "Ok, thanks for letting me know."

THAT. WAS. IT. No, "Ok, I'll be getting back to you sometime this week." or anything. Hmmm. I hate WAITING!!! I'm not a very patient person. I've got October plans that I don't know if I can attend or not because I don't know if I will be working. I guess if I don't get it, then it was meant to be.

But for now I just sit here... playing the waiting game.

I SOOOO hear you loud and clear on trying to interpret any info you get on a job. UGH! I wanted this one job SO badly. I sent them an email and thanked them, let them know I was still interested and would have to accept another offer sometime soon, etc. They wrote back and said they "enjoyed speaking with me, but the salary requests were too high for what they were looking for." So I accepted Job #2 and it's looking great.

Moral of the story: if it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be. Sears probably wants to keep the staff they have if possible, and hire only as necessary. And will drag their feet on hiring. are definitely qualified and able and great for the job- hoping it's in the bag for you!
