Here’s the story.
I went on ZipRecruiter and applied for a job. This job calls me 2 days later and requested me to take online tests that are recorded and viewed. I take these tests and didn’t think I did very well (math and computer tests). A day later, they call me and ask me to come in for an interview. The next day, I go to the interview. I meet with the HR person and the manager for the job I applied for. The interview lasted 5 minutes! Of course with that short of time, I did not think I got the job. Cut to a week later and I am still applying for jobs online and my phone rings. It was the HR person of said company. They offered me the job!!!!
I start my new job on Monday. It’s 9:30-6 Monday through Friday. I will keep my job at the gym but only on Sunday’s. I will keep the 2 clients I have left and take them wherever on Saturday’s. So now I have 3 jobs and will not have to stress over buying groceries or paying off credit card debt I have accumulated in the past couple of years. I definitely want to stay working at the gym since I will be sitting at a computer all day and will need to exercise more than I currently do (I haven’t been because of being so tired after running around work).
I’m sure some of you will understand the relief I feel right now. I will be working in a call center talking to customers and vendors which is fine with me. I will have benefits starting in January so I won’t have to stress to find the $100 it costs me out of pocket to see a doctor or the $70 it costs to get an asthma inhaler without insurance.
The gym and client driving will be our spending money and my son said that sounds great. I am selling stuff on eBay right now to make grocery money. That’s how it’s been here the past few weeks. I wasn’t making much at the gym, just barely enough to get by, I was only scheduled 30 hours a week or less even working in multiple areas there. I joined a debt consolidation company back in June and was having to use my moms credit card for groceries and my sons therapist. Now her card is maxed out too (she spent the majority on it – not me). I am excited to be able to pay that down, get groceries, and pay my own bills.
This job was a godsend. I know that for sure. I am writing all this down to re-read it on those tough days when I don’t want to work a 9-5 job. 😂
I got someone to take Lucky out for walks while I’m gone daily since I will get a 30 minute lunch which is not enough time to drive home, take him out, and get back. Amber is fine waiting all day for me. She used to when I worked in the travel industry anyway. My son will be at school and said he’s fine walking home daily which he mostly does now anyway. The only day we will have trouble is on Wednesday’s when he is supposed to be at church at 5 and his bus gets to his stop at 4:45 and is 2.5 miles away from the church. I told him that he can take an Uber if he needs to.
So everyone is set. I am excited to start this new adventure. The job already told me that there is a lot of opportunity to move up fast as well.
Note that I am not saying where or who I work for. Company policy (yep I read it) says that we are not allowed to say any details about our job or company online or in personal blogs. I don’t anyway. 😀
AND…I may have met someone. I’m not sure if he’s just being nice or is interested but I am going to give him my phone number and see what happens. He’s older than me, has a dad bod, runs his own business, exercises, and is just a really nice guy. So maybe???
Y’all have a great weekend, it’s my last full weekend at the gym!!! 😘
