Dave - yes, please do contact your BIL in Sacramento and THANKS for being so willing to help.
Gia, I will email you to find out more about
your friend and the place in PA. I can tell you that a move like that sends me into panic mode. :(
Here is the latest. It's one thing after another and God knows I don't know why this is happening. My spirit keeps getting crushed. Yesterday, I went on an interview. The plan was just to meet with HR and do the testing...math, spelling, typing, Word, Excel, Access. That's a lot of testing. Then the HR recruiter interviewed me then the Customer Service Manager interviewed me (by this time I have been there 4 hours and my throat is sore from all of the talking) then the Branch Manager interviewed me. A friend of mine is a limosuine driver (she owns the business) and she knows the people at this company. The company is Uline. Anybody heard of them? know somebody there? Well she referred me in and raved about
how happy all of the people were that worked there and she drives around a lot of corporate people and gets a good feel for how the people are treated at their companies. Anyway, I finally interviewed with the Branch Manager. The Branch Manager runs the show - top dog and he has an Admin. Asst. that is not working out for him. He replaced the old Branch Manager 10 months ago. Apparently, the Admins that they have are young and inexperienced. I can understand that. They are not letting her go but finding a place for her in the company. When I went to the job I didn't know the job descript
ion and neither do they, except that it is Executive Admin Asst with lots of project assistance. I like that. :) I really liked the man I would be working for. He was very warm and friendly. I really liked his personality. I was at that office for 5 1/2 hours. Okay, now that's the record. I was exhausted. It's like a 5 1/2 hour monologue.
Driving home I was afraid to get my hopes up. I have come so close to getting jobs before and then "they hire from within" or I had to turn it down b/c it would require me to live at the office and my body cannot handle that at this time in my life.
Here's the BAD news. I got home and checked my messages and I had 2 messages from the agency that placed me on a job starting next Tuesday running through the 12th for $20/Hr. (good $ for TEMP) and I DESPERATELY need this job/money. The first message was asking me to confirm that I would be at the job. The 2nd message indicated that she called someone else and filled the positon. I was dumbstruck, devastated. I had already said YES to the job. I had already received 2 emails from the Company confirming my assignment with the details. Their was absolutely no reason for them to think that I was not going to show up at the job. I did not anticipate anything like this happening. I called the office and they were all "gone for the day." The Receptionist was the only one there and I asked him to get a hold of the woman who placed me. He said that their was nothing they could do and to call on Tuesday. I cried uncontrollably.
I'm a good person. I have a good heart. I have a lot to offer this world. I've decided I'm still going to fight. I'm not going to die. But what next?
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen."
