I swear it wasn’t any longer than 5-10min. They asked me a few questions… why I left where and what the most recent jobs I’ve done have been and why I wanted to work for them. I think I did OK answering the questions, but I don’t think they liked me very much. We’ll see. They intend to make a decision within a week. I decided that if I get the job I would just have to deal with the standing. It’s at a branch that is 5 min from my house. I could walk to work if I was ambitious.
Tellers work alternate Saturday mornings (no problem) and shifts that rotate either 8:45 to 5:15 or 9:45 to 6:15. Pretty straight forward. There’s an “upselling” catch though. Each month the teller has a quota to get customers interested in the bank’s other products and services. The quota increases the longer you work there. Really? A bank? Oh well, a job is a job, isn’t it?
I’ve been thinking about the teaching thing. I think I might go ahead and get my certification. It’s going to cost some money once you include all the tests but I think it might be worth it. If we end up moving to another state my certification may not transfer but I think it would look better than not having one at all. It might transfer to some states too. Who knows? At least I would be doing something towards my future.
I don’t know what to do. I feel lost. I don’t think I’m going to get this bank teller position and don’t know what to do next. Keep applying, I guess. I’ve not heard back from many of the universities I applied to and I expected that I would have heard something by now. I think my research plan sucks and that is what is holding me back. I don’t know what else it could be.
Will I ever be employable again? I go through jobs every 3-4 years but I know others go through jobs every 3-4 months and they still get new ones. I just want a job where I can stay. Go to work, go home, go on vacation. Done. I wish I hadn’t screwed up this last job. Oh well. Done deal. We must carry on.
Anyone know how to get a freakin job??!!!!?!?!?
