I know I can't get too excited because it *is* just a supermarket deli job... BUT IT'S A JOB!

I recieved an email from Coles saying I wasn't succesful, which made me moody and depressed for an hour before I decided to apply for yet MORE jobs. After sending off application # 4, I got a call from the deli manager at Coles (yes - who just sent me an email an hour before saying I didn't get it - lol, WHAT?!). Anyway, she asked me if I would still like the position and if so, please attend an induction on Saturday from 9-2. HOW EXCITING. It is not exactly a job to aspire to have, I know, but for reasons which I will save for another post, it is the type of job that suits me right now. Plus I am excited at the opportunity to get my foot in the door of a national company because it will no doubt help me limp along while I keep doing my degree. Big Grin

    Hey Congrats!
    Now you can quit that other job, and don't need to deal with those people anymore.

    Congrats! Here's to hoping for a happy future...

    thanks guys. Shiela unfortunately I can't straight away (I would LOVE to), because they can only promise me a minimum of 8 hours a week. Over christmas it is more likely to be around 30 hours or more - but when it dies down after the silly season I don't want to be left with only 8 hours (less than I have now!). But, my priority is my new job, and so if I am getting a good amount of hours there and needing time to study, it's highly likely I will be doing a few 'cough cough, can't work, sick' calls to the bakery. I know it's not professional - but then again, they have no been entirely professional in their treatment of staff so I can't say they shouldn't expect it.

    Congrats! Good luck!

    That happened to me, too -- except I got a ding letter after I accepted the job. Guess the HR office just sent them out to everyone when the position was filled -- including the one who got it!

    Given how the bakery has treated you - a few 'ahem. cough cough.' calls are not completely inappropriate!

    Congrats, yes you should be excited. There are other people that wanted that same job and you got it.
