Two more calls for interviews without being recommended
Friday, after the interview at Wal-Mart, Paul Moore called my brother's house. Paul is the manager of 3rd shift, in other words night jobs. If I were to get a job with 3rd shift I could still be cashier, although that's not the only thing I could be. 3rd shift works 10pm to 7am, so it would be a full time position (as compared to the bike assembler, only part time). On the other hand, it would mean less time with Le.

Today, right before Le had to go to work, Sue Moore called my brother's house. Sue is the manager of the garden center. (Yes, *blink blink* is appropriate.) I would probably be working day shifts, also possibly a cashier, although, again, not guaranteed that position. I'm not sure if this would be part time or full time, yet.

I still like the idea of working at night over the other two. At the same time, these last two seem more likely, to me, because they contacted me without being told about my application. I'll admit that Anne might have seen my application in due time, but she was still pointed to it and, thus, might be a little biased one way or the other. (My sister commented on how often is it that being recommended works against you, eh? heh)

I was supposed to hear back from Anne by today, at the latest, but haven't, so I'm ready to assume that position won't be going to me. Thus, hope for one of the other two. ^^

I like being called for interviews rather than having to repeatidly check back only to find the position(s) have been filled.

With that positive note, I'm off to the shower now.

Assume nothing. Call and find out.

Many employers make you call them so that they know that you're genuinely interested in wanting the job, not just spamming applications all over the county.

Eh, my boyfriend, Le, works there as a CSM. He's going to see what's going on while at work today.

Now that I've been thinking about it some more, I could've just done that myself, and probably should have.

Well, even if they want to know if I'm genuinely interested, if they say "We'll call you within a few days" then I expect them to call me. They shouldn't say something if they don't plan on doing it, at least that's my philosophy.

Maybe, but it's part of the old school business philosophy. It's right up there with not letting on during the interview that someone is a good or bad candidate.
