Happy Dance! Happy Dance!
Did you know that the corporate offices of the Adam's Mark are right here in town? I didn't. I'd sent off a cover letter and my resume to the HBE corporation due to an ad found on Greathires.org and about four days later I recieve a phone call for an interview- not bad, since I wasn't really expecting anything to come from my job search that day.
Anywho, HBE is the umbrella company that owns the Adam's Mark Hotel chain, of which there are currently five hotels. HBE's corporate offices are on Olive, a hop, skip, and a jump away from my Westport campus. Yay!
Yay Yay Yay!!!
It's a full-time position, 8.25 an hour, I can get all my bills paid, I can take part-time classes slowly at Webster year-round and finish everything up. They have tuition assistance. They have health benefits. I haven't seen one downside, financially, to me getting this job.
And I did get it, by the way. On Friday morning they called me with an official offer. I leapt.
Then I had to put in my two weeks where I currently work. The worst part was handing in my letter of resignation to my manager- the one who hired me. I hoped he wouldn't be in. After all, T.J. Maxx gave me a chance to earn something to put gas in my car, and I think I learned more about teamwork and flux of workload there than at any other location. If one person called off, we all felt it.
But my two weeks are in, and I offered my services for the following week. I work this week as it's on the schedule, and after that, weekends while I'm being trained. Then I'll be an Adam's Mark employee full-time. HUZZAH!!!
HUZZAH HUZZAH HUZZAH!!!
