Unlike the last time I told you that I pretty much have a job, this time it does seem to be a bit more of a certainty. It's a very different job too. I was at A4E again recently this past Friday and pretty much as soon as I walked in they told me that they had something for me at Thornton's. It's going to be three days a week on a rota and while that doesn't sound too bad, almost sounds part time, the shifts are 12 hours long. It'll be seasonal work too and last for two or three months. It's expected to start in November and end in January or so for the Christmas period.
It's not definitely seasonal though as not long after Christmas you have Valentines Day and not long after that you have Easter. During the first quarter to half of the year a chocolate factory is a very busy and necessary place. Apparently they even have people who are still there when they were sent on the same thing last year.
Before all of that though I have to go into a prescreening process tomorrow to meet the people running the place and such. I also have to go in for an induction to see if I can even manage the work. If I manage to make it through all of that then the job will pretty much be mine.
I was actually pretty happy to hear that I might have a job and a temporary one like this suits me pretty well. I'd say I could do with less hours but if it's compacted into three days then it doesn't really impact my life much and I should still be able to write and everything. Not to mention with decent hours I would still get a pretty nice paycheck. Before I start thanking A4E and talking about how awesome they are though I also have to say that they actually have some kind of working agreement with Thornton's. While it's pretty cool they've set this up, I'm not about to listen to them when they hype it up and everything because I know they do this for pretty much everyone.
Still pretty cool though. Assuming I live through it.
