Job stuff


So my testing day at AutoZone was this past Thursday. I had to go in and take some tests on their computer. I had to do a couple of them over again because I failed them the first time (and the second time on some of them) because I know hardly anything at all about cars/trucks. roses_in_may finished a couple of them for me. Ha. I asked her whether or not I was supposed to be retaining information from these tests. I am scheduled for two days this coming week, Tuiesday and Thursday. I am scheduled as driver, which basically means I'll be working for roses_in_may making deliveries and such. I thought it was kind of... silly... to put the girl who just moved to the area as driver since I don't have any clue where ANYTHING is but oh well. The time I'm not out driving I'll just hang out in the store, I guess. I'm not sure what to think about the job there yet. I definitely don't feel comfortable. Mostly because I feel like I have no clue what I am doing. I know I can learn but I'm still stressed and anxious about working there. I was there for 3 hours on Thursday and got paid for 8, so there's at least that. My title is parts sales manager. I don't know what that means. Ha.

On Friday I interviewed at American General Financial Service for their secretary position. I think that the interview went well. I was there for an hour and a half. I interviewed with the lady in the office I would be working most closely with if I got the position and after meeting with her, she had me meet with the head of the office and interview with him as well. It is a small office (4-5 people) and there would be days I would be there alone if I were secretary. I would mostly be maintaining databases and reports and such. All stuff that I know I could do. They have very good benefits and I know it pays more than $12/hour. And it's closer than the AutoZone job by like 10 min. I should hear from them by Wednesday.

On Tuesday at 4 p.m., a lady from The Patriot-News is calling me about a custom publications clerk position I applied for. I guess it will be like a mini-phone interview. She didn't call it that. Just said she wanted to call and talk to me for about 15 min. about the position. I almost desperately want to cling to the idea of getting that position because it's with another newspaper and I feel like that's all I know anymore.

I also still have to redo the copyediting test I took for the copyeditor position for the medical book company. I flubbed it up the first time and have to go over it a second time and resubmit it. I don't know if I'll do well enough the second time to get offered a copyediting position with the company but I am not to proud to try for it again, even if it means failure. I have to give it a go. I think working for newspapers and proofing AP Style has screwed me up for other writing styles.
