I've been 'invited to interview' for another position at the Retail Emporium.
Turns out the Not-So-Evil Bosnian Woman who had a tendency to make my life miserable before Christmas has decided she can't do the job any longer and is leaving the Merchandising team to go to Sales (which should be quite interesting, to say the least :rolleyes:). I've been asked to interview for the position.
It is a step up from sales (and a bit of a raise, too) and something I could do,
The old calendar on the wall tells me it is now basically March 2010, and is a self imposed deadline to make some serious decisions...and I still have no idea what those decisions are going to look like.
Things on the job front are remarkably well. Long story short, I ended up practically running the Inventory back in January, once Management discovered I used to do Inventories for the Company DAILY for a living for two years. Of course this didn't pay me any better,

Usually the workday starts out with taking the merchandise that came in the day/evening before and working it into the sales floor. Today was no different, but with Black Friday a week away, there was an unusually large amount of the same stuff. Many copies of this, that, and the other thing. There were six flatbed carts full of items, each cart holds about 50 cubic
After three weeks, I finally have a better idea of what my Job MIGHT be.
Currently, I'm a Temporary Seasonal Part Time Merchandise Handler, a job that doesn't exist in the hierarchy of the place. Which means that whatever needs to be done, they say 'Let's try Yooper!'
I started off stocking shelves and displays. Then I was asked to organize a few displays. Then I was asked to stay way over scheduled time and work while the store was open and continue stocking and organizing
