W.....Wait For It.


It has been a fair few weeks since I have written anything on my blog but in hindsight, once I explain your see just why.  
Work was not kind to me and with the demise of my hours something had to give. So instead of sitting about complaining, I decided to do something about it.  I put together a LinkedIn profile, then set about making a cracking CV.  I had a focus on who I wanted to work for, even if only part-time and then started the ball rolling with application after application.  It did not take long before one of my top picks, John Lewis Partnership to answer my plea.  

I was called for an interview at Waitrose Epsom for a catering assistant in the staff canteen, but after careful consideration to the job role I decided it was not for me, I thought that it would be putting me in deep water, to deep for my liking and sadly had to decline their offer, but wait...They told me to hold on as the word was that some hours were becoming available as someone in the branch was transferring.   I was expecting to hear in a weeks time but it was only the next day that I had that phone call for those elusive words "would you like to come in for an interview?”

Needless to say, I was offered a job at the end of my interview.
It has been serval months now and I have gone from strength to strength, I have survived my first Christmas in retail and coming on in leaps and bounds and going from one role to another within customer services.  I am now working on the front line of customer service, call it the firing line if you will, but it is my most challenging and rewarding role yet, I am now the trendy face of Waitrose Epsom at its helm, The Welcome Desk.
