Passing the test

I'm looking at a job that doesn't involve shift work, and so I had to go take the skills test today, which I passed by the skin of my teeth!! I go interview on Wednesday the 29, so keep me in your thoughts, please.

Which brings me to my question...Oh! You didn't know I had one? HA! Anyway, a friend of mine who works there told me that a couple people we know applied, and one didn't pass the test, and the other wasn't even called in. These people have been unemployed for a year and even more for one of them. I know that you can sit and tell me that I had the skills to pass that test, but what makes me, a person who is already gainfully employed, who, if it wasn't for the fact that I have to have different shifts all the time would NEVER consider leaving where I work, have more gain to this position than my fellow counterparts?

That's all! Love hearing from you!

  1. Ahh, Gretch, we can't just stop wanting things because others would like something similar. When you leave your position there will be an opening for them. You have put in your time doing shift work, so it's your turn to have the monday through friday job or whatever. Let the other two go for your position. If they have not been employed up to now, they have obviously found some way to make ends meet, you should not worry about others, they can take care of themselves in this respect. If they needed a fewbuck, i am sure you'd lend them a hand, but when it comes to jobs...go for it, and don't feel guilty. Would you have harbored ill will toward one of them if they had been able to pass the test and gotten an interview?
