I worked at the clothing store yesterday, but it wasn't very busy and gave us all time to chat with one another, especially since the manager wasn't working. One of the other girls said that after the manager had referred me for the management position at the new store, she also referred one of her other previous employees, a boy named Grant that used to work with her. He's twenty-three and had actually worked his way up to manager in Vancouver with this same company. It's a high end unisex store, and if you had to choose between a 23 year old with less experience, or a 44 year old with more, who would you choose?
I would choose the young man.
So, I guess I'm back to square #1 and have no idea where to turn next.
I am still thrilled to be staying on with my current company, as an associate advisor. Since the guy I'll be partnering with has a high first year commissions level, I'll automatically be paid more than three times what I currently make off my own level. Maybe I can stay PT at this other store job, as long as the manager doesn't mess with me. I'm a little disappointed she didn't say anything at all about this guy Grant...and maybe I would have persued something else a little harder if I'd known. Live and learn!
Hope you all have a good Sunday.
