I applied much earlier this year, before things went sideways, and decided all along that if it was supposed to happen it would, and Saturday afternoon, I was finally contacted by them and had a phone interview.
Are you 18 or older? Yes
Are you an American citizen? Yes
Do you have reliable transportation? Yes
Can you climb stairs? Yes
Can you commit to 20 hours a week? Yes
So, I got a preliminary offer, and yesterday (Sunday) got an e-mail telling me where to go to be fingerprinted and have my badge photo taken. I made an appointment for this afternoon, and I must have passed the criminal background check, because they sent me even more e-paperwork, which I filled out and “signed”, and sent that back too.
They said the job should start in 4 to 6 weeks, but who knows, considering how quickly all this has happened? I don’t mind if it starts right away, and the money would be even better than I thought.
Going back to work after 8 years of self-employment will be a big change for me, that’s for sure, but I’ll get used to it.
