Work Issues

Hey guys.

Isn't it terrible that once you THINK you have a job, you start thinking you don't? Well, that's not common, but let me tell you what's been going on over here.

I told you guys I had a job interview. It went well, and they called back. I accidentally missed the call (there's some phone issues with the house number), so I called back. They tell me that they would like to hire me. They also say they'll call me back. I ask them to call on my cell that very day, so the phone issue doesn't occur again.
Well, my cell is . . . not very good (this is being kind). And it got worse that very same day due to an accident I dare not mention. So now I have a glitchy cell phone. I also have T-Mobile which has terrible reception, so about 50% of the time, I don't have service.
I never got a call, so I called back on Monday (yesterday). They told me they intended to call all the workers later that day, so to wait. I waited all day yesterday, with no call. These are my thoughts/feelings as of now:

I'm freaking out because I don't know whether it's my phone, or they genuinely haven't called.
However, if they wanted me, you'd think they'd call home if cell wasn't working (no?) Or at least leave a message.
I'm also starting to think it was a mistake and maybe they didn't need me after all. Needless to say, I feel awful right now. I don't know if this is common, but God, this is causing me some stress.

It's becoming late for me to find a job because all these people are applying for the summer. So now I think this may be more of a curse than a blessing. What do you guys think?

  2. Perhaps you should call them again tomorrow to make sure. I mean, you really want the job right? It doesn't hurt to be too cautious - it might actually show that you're genuinely interested lols

    Good luck! And the buffet is in Brooklyn, on the D line :]

  3. Look, I am working now as fashion production assistant. Months ago, the guy called me telling he needed an assistant and that he would call me. Months had passed and 3 weeks ago he called me. We meet, he liked me and told again he would call me, one week after I got his call and I am working. I had this feeling for a long time.
    This things take a little time. I am sure they'll call you. You could send an email/or call again telling about your phone issues. That if they can email you instead....
    I am so curious to know where are you going to work and what'll you do there.

  5. They DID say they would like to hire you, so they would probably call you back to confirm training or something. The most important thing to do in this situation is DO NOT FRET. ;) eat a cookie and wait by the phone. ^^

  6. Ugh, sorry about the phone issues! I think a follow up call wouldn't be a bad thing if you don't hear from them for a couple days... just explain the situation. Hope you get it!!!
