So the job interview yesterday with Orchard Supply Hardware went really good! They're going to be remodeling the store starting in September so they are needing a lot of new employees to help with that and also to replace the people they had to let go due to not having good enough attendance. The interviewer liked that I was 15 minutes early for my interview, that I'm on time, local, and good personality. The position is part time and will start off at $9.00 an hour which is CA min. wage. He asked if I had any desire to be promoted and I responded with yes and that I'd love to work my way up to a manager/supervisor position at some point. I left him a thank you card and hopefully that will help make him remember me but I don't think that will be a problem. My boyfriend went to OSH last night to look at paint colors for our bedroom since it's currently pink from when I was growing up. We picked out a medium brown for the walls (beige), a soft grey for the trim (silent night), and a white for the ceiling. We went with a more neutral look and they looked great together on the paint cards so we went ahead and got a paint sample pint for each color so we can see what they will look like in the room first before buying. The woman working the paint department was so sweet! We got to talking and I mentioned to her I interviewed there today and she got all excited and said "you're good, you're hired." I told her who I interviewed with and she said he's a great manager and person to work with. She introduced me to some of her co-workers and told them that I interviewed and that I'm their new co-worker. She said she's going to put in a good word about me to the interviewer I had :) If I do get hired they offer a 20% off employee discount which will be pretty darn awesome since we're looking at painting my room and perhaps the entire house at some point.
