Funny little story about my new job...had an interview 2 Fridays ago and it went great. The owner told me that I basically got the job and that I should just come in on Monday morning to start. He said he would call me later that day to confirm but never did. Didn't get a call over the weekend so I was stressed cause this job would be a perfect opportunity for me to pursue my new career path.
So the following Monday morning I show up and owner shows up and there is another guy there too...owner looks at both of us confused. I think to myself that maybe I didn't get the job after all, owner looks at the other dude and tells him that he didn't get the job and that I did. Dude looked pissed and just walks out without saying a word. The owner shows me to my office and starts helping me setup so I can get stared and he gets a text from the guy saying that he is insane and a lunatic for not hiring him
and tells him to go to ******* he**. Fast forward to today and the store and warehouse have been broken into...my office is destroyed and my computers are gone, and a box truck was stolen. The main office is a mess but they went in on my office. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the guy who didn't get the job...
Anyways this job isn't anything special and the pay sucks right now but I'm getting my foot in the door so its a good start. I'm basically running the e-commerce side of his business and dealing with the website, marketing and sales part of it. So far its been a lot easier than I thought, except for the part that I have no idea or experience about the industry so I just try my best when dealing with customer emails and phone calls for products
One thing I did learn from this thread was to not be afraid to be persistent . I sent my resume in, called to see if they got it, called again and got a phone interview, which led to a face to face. So far the owner has been impressed with how quickly I've been able to catch on and work independently. To everyone still looking for work, just stay positive and don't sell yourself short. Believe in yourself and just keep at it until you get what you want!
