I mentioned this before in a previous post, about “Feast or Famine.” Good Lord why does this have to be true. Talk about utter confusion! I have a job I really enjoy, but the pay is a little less than stellar. I get a job offer a couple of weeks later for the same pay different company, that was an easy decline! Then, I get a call from a staffing agency down the road that came across my profile from Workforce Solutions that they had a job for me, I already have one, but lets check it out! I go interview with the agency the next day and after that concluded she says she will forward my resume to the company. When I got home that day, another job I applied for called me to set up an interview (like what the hell is going on here?). Obviously, I accepted that interview too. I arrived to that one and spoke to the boss and the boss’s boss. Oh, and by now I am pro at interviewing so needless to say I nailed it! They called me back a few hours later and told me that they had decided not to proceed with any other applicants and then proceeded to offer me a job doing the same thing I do with my present employer. I accepted!!!
This job pays a bit more and although it offers less hours and is a further drive, in the long run this job is going to be a lot more beneficial to my future! The door is wide open there, anything you can think of you can pretty much do it here at this place! But I still love my current job so I decided to also keep that one! I talked to my boss and explained the situation, he said he understood and that he didn’t want to lose me as an employee because I was one of the best ones he had (I bust my ever living @$$ for this place without a complaint). So he said he would help me work around my new schedule!
I never heard back from the staffing agency, or so I thought until the other day when they called to schedule a phone interview with the actual company. Now this company is also a great company and is based out of Germany; however, they only have two locations in the USA, one in my little town in Florida and the other in Seattle. The rest of the locations are spread around other continents. I feel as if this location issue really limits my ability to progress with this company. The location here is a very small location on the corner of a big plaza, with a small office and a small warehouse. I feel so confused about it though because it is only a 5 min drive, it will pay more, they are offering full time, and for all I know this could be a “diamond in the rough” job. I am going to do the phone interview, ask a million questions and just play it by ear and pray on it. I was almost hoping they wouldn’t call me back so I could forfeit any responsibility of making a life decision…. Why do they all come at once? I go a year of famine and now I am being ambushed by a feast! I defintely feel blessed!
