…though it’s not as exciting as the first one.
The manager of the Lawn & Garden department at the local Meijer store called to schedule an interview for 10:45 tomorrow morning. The job, if I get it, would pay $7.00 an hour and she recognizes right up front it’s something I’d be moving on from as soon as I could manage it. I should find out tomorrow if I got the tech support job I interviewed for last week so it’s possible I may not have to take the Meijer job if it’s offered, but considering tomorrow morning is my last call for an unemployment check — my unemployment benefits officially ended yesterday — if the better job doesn’t come through then $7.00 an hour is still better than nothing at all.
The interesting thing about this possibility is that I’ve worked for Meijers in the Lawn & Garden department almost 20 years previously when I was in my early 20’s and needed a second job. Back then it was Pets & Garden and I enjoyed it quite a bit because it fell over the Yuletide holiday and that’s the department all the decorations end up in. Hopefully I won’t be there so long as to repeat that experience, but these days you never know. A job’s a job and I can’t afford to be too picky at the moment.
