Last week October 8, 2008 was my second year round working on my first job as a casual employee only. There is a time I was given more hours and sometimes less which is not very reliable financially especially if you want to achieve something like buying a house.
After holiday from Philippines last June, I’ve started searching for another job on Accounting and also on retail as customer service. I suppose prefer accounting work but I don’t have luck on my application. Last August unexpectedly I got a call from a company that I’ve applied before and its fortunate I was hired as casual again so now I had two jobs. Since I had two jobs, it's coincidence my first job gave me more hours because there are short of staff on other department. The hours now are like a pouring rain to me, but I know it’s not permanent so I take the opportunity of accepting the hours.
On my second job I was assigned as check-out operator on the counter of volume purchases not on express that has cigar retail for sale because I was not trained yet to sell cigarettes. Before I apply on this supermarket I want to get a permanent job but they can’t give me that moment. Until last week I got an offer of permanent part-time job from deli department and I accept it, but had conflict to my first job. My manager is not happy because it’s not a good timing month until Christmas as it is getting busier and busier in the shop and she needs me. In the end she understands because she knew I can’t have either part-time or full-time job in her company but I still can work some hours with her.
Now I’m hoping for a nice future in my second job and hope all is well adjusting to new team members.
