I got a call this morning from the local big box home improvement store. I had my final interview with the store manager. I worked there last spring and summer. In September, I left for a several reasons. I can now say that on Saturday, I will officially be employed. Best of all, I'll be working in the Outside Lawn and Garden area where I worked 3 months last year.
There is potential to turn this into a full time job as their "Live Plant Specialist" turned in her notice this morning, according to my inside sources. Two people have already recommended me to the store manager, including the department manager, for the position. While it would be nice to have a better paying job with benefits, I'm just happy to have the job I've been given and will hope for the best. You can't be disappointed being paid to work outside in the spring with plants.
I wish I looked better in a red smock. It clashes with my sunburn.
