Default New Job! :D

Hey people,

I sent an application form in for Costco's ages ago, and suddenly out of the blue, I got a call asking do I still want a job, and asked me for an interview that day.

Well, it went well, and they said they'd ring yesterday, and guess what? They did

I go the job!!! Finally!!!

It pays 5.25 an hour, and I'll be doing quite alot of work including tills, pushing trolleys, heavy lifting, working in photography, etc..

Only problem is, and I hope they don't throw me out for it, since I will tell them today since I need to go in to copy details,
is that I'm going away in 3 weeks time and it was already planned, for 1 week.

Will they have a problem with that?

No, luckily, I'm only going away for 1, so I'll miss only 2 shifts (Sat and Sun), so... they should be okay with it...

Be straight up with them, tell them this was already planned before they "rang you out of the blue", you should be fine.

Better to bring it up sooner rather than later to give them time to find a replacement.

Oh yeah, good one on the job

Haha, word. It's so freakishly hot here in California...so crazy. Over the weekend, several hardware stores ran out of fans because so many people were buying them. Then some cities are experiencing black outs which SUCKS, because they have no AC or anything. Most people have to sit outside all day, because the house is just TOO hot.
