So, as most of you know–if you’ve read some of my previous posts–I’m unemployed and am currently looking for a job. I made a vow to myself that I wouldn’t get a job in the fast food business, especially not as my first job. So that narrowed down my options in this small town of mine. Well…the good news is, I just got off the phone with the manager of a particular business. In the food industry. I have an interview ttomorrow morning to see if I fit the bill.
Here’s where the irony comes in:
1. It’s a fast-food place, more or less.
2. It’s fucking Subway.
Yup, you read correctly. If you happened to read an old post of mine, “The Tale of the Subway Sandwich,” you surely know that the particular sandwich shop is not a top-favorite, for me or my stomach. (I don’t have my links working yet, so look it up, yourself) The dangers that lurk past those double entrance doors…Yet here I am, going into a interview for the forsaken place tomorrow morning.
I suppose it could be worse–McDonald’s is always hiring for some horrifying reason. So I guess that I got the long end of the stick for this one. If you close one eye, squint the other one really hard, and spin around, Subway doesn’t look like it would fall under the title of “Fast Food.” Don’t they even have a jingle or something about how “it’s not fast food”? Regardless, I still pretty much didn’t break my vow (or maybe I’m just trying to make myself feel better). I’m still serving and slaving to the public, but what job doesn’t require that? A job is a job and money is money, so who am I to complain?
The manager seems like a complete sweetheart, as I heard over the phone when I called in about my application. Maybe it won’t be too bad. I’m not working at Walmart or anything…Plus, I know just about every employee there, so hey, employee bonding, right?
I think I’ll be okay. First job, nobody’s harassed me for “previous experience” and I apparently don’t need it to put a sandwich together. Win-win. Now I have the task of going out and buying an outfit for the interview, and getting my hair cut so I don’t look like I just crawled out of the woods after fifty years.
Just figured that I’d keep you guys updated. If everything goes well and I have the job, I’ll be sure to write about the interview and my first day of work. That should be a blast. I can see it now:
“So, Sara, what makes you qualified for Subway?”
“Well, the last sub I had from here gave me the runs…Buuut I’m all for poisoning the rest of the town! I’m a hard worker, too. My hands will be flying over that sandwich to get it away from me as quickly as possible.”
Ok, maybe not exactly like that. We’ll see how it goes (:
Have a great day, and tomorrow we’ll find out if I finally got a job!
