I Wish I Could Tell You How It Went

This blog post is up super late and there's a very good reason for that. I had a job interview today at a local gas station. I not long got back from it actually, after walking home. It was only about two miles or so. There was a bus stop opposite but the bus drove past me while I was looking up the timetable and debating walking home, so I just walked home. About a minute after I started walking home ANOTHER bus drove past me. Yay.

As I said in the title I would love to tell you how it went but I really can't. The guy didn't ask me too many questions and mostly told me things. Such as that my uniform would be provided for me, what my hours and pay were, and really the only questions he asked were simple ones like asking if I was okay to cover weekdays and sick leave of other employees. I'm pretty apathetic towards work. I'll get a job but I've always felt like I need one, and not massively felt much of a want for one. It sounds terrible I know, but this job would be perfect for me. I mean absolutely perfect. The hours, the distance, the job itself, it's all perfect. It would be working sixteen hours across two night time shifts. I would have the money to support my writing and wouldn't really lose much free time and much writing time. I'm living with my dad still so my pay isn't a massive factor either. Minimum wage is £6.19 and I could be very, very comfortable on that.

The people who set me up with the interview even seemed surprised that I wasn't asked too many questions. To me it either means I have the job or I don't and he didn't want to waste his time and mine. They gave me lots of fancy interview prep both Wednesday and Thursday. My interview technique is apparently perfect. I know all the right answers and the right way to deliver them. But he didn't ask me anything they asked me. They asked me things like "So what do you do when the store is busy and it's just you working?" and "What IS customer service? How do you maintain high levels of it?" They also set me up with a haircut and even some nice interview clothes. Clothes I can say I am thankful to be out of and hair I can say I'm thankful will grow back. Everyone loves my new hair but me.

Anyway, I'll obviously let you guys know how it goes but for now I have no clue how it went.

My new hair. It's kinda hard to see but I essentially have short back and sides with a slightly long front. When slicked back it looks pretty nice, but I don't like how it looks when it falls forward.

  2. Oh this is good news Mark because the job sounds like the sort of thing that you'd ease yourself into just perfectly, plus you'd get paid more than when on job seekers which is a bonus as well. I hope that you get it, considering how the interview went it sounds like it's possible they've already decided you have it, I don't know for sure but this is exactly pretty much how my successful job interview went.

  3. Eh, my new hair took a while to get used to as well. Everyone likes it, and now I'm starting to too. Don't dismiss it just yet, you'll have to deal with it until it all grows back anyway.

    As for the interview, the fact that he did a lot of explaining and such hints at you actually getting the job, otherwise telling you the ins and outs of how everything works over there seems kind of... pointless.

  4. If he was already talking of providing you an outfit and it seemd an informal interview I bet you probably got it. Keep us updated Mark!

  6. It kinda sounds like you have the job. I don't see the point in him telling you those things otherwise.

  8. I've been to job interviews where the interviewer has barely asked any questions, and got the job. Sometimes they already have an idea in their mind whether or not they're going to hire you. Good luck mate.
