A Brighter Day

Yesterday's sorrow turned into today's joy. The gloominess of the weather doesn't help the stressful job search. My search is coming to an end on this sunny day... finally. I've accepted the part time job w/ DSW as you may know from a previous posting and today was my orientation. It consisted of me and another girl (a high school senior) watching a couple videos, going over the handbook w/ the merchandising manager and a store tour. The manager, Sandy has got to be one of the nicest women I've ever met!

Monday I had a phone screening call w/ Wells Fargo and had an interview with them today. The drive is only about 15-20 minutes away and the buildings are beautiful w/ a great view of the mountains. The interview went well and the man and woman who interviewed me were probably the coolest-normal-laid back interviewers I've had. I wasn't home only a couple of hours when they called to offer me the position. I accepted the position for their ATM/Debit Fraud Specialist II position. The only downside is the hours. It's not the typical Monday through Friday 8-5 job. I'd have to work Saturdays which means I'd have Sunday off and another day of the week. I'm still waiting to hear back from Edward Jones though.

You may remember me talking about the position at Chase I interviewed for. Well, when Sarah the recruiter called last Saturday, she gave me false hope. When I leave her messages, she never returns them. When I call and speak to her she constantly says "everything is so busy and crazy right now" she started to phone screen me again when I talked to her on Monday. When I told her I already had an interview w/ the branch that I was returning her call because I thought it was about that. She stated for me to call her back on Tuesday, that she'd call the branch to find out the status. I called and left another message on Tuesday, I still haven't heard from her. I was about to call her again today when Wells Fargo beat me. So forget about Chase and their unorganized-complaining-pot headed recruiter; hence she is probably the reason the position has been open for 2 months.
