Now here's the kicker: then they told me that they were promoting me to a different job: Customer Service.
This is somewhat "w00t"able.
It's a promotion, and a raise, both of which are (obviously) Good Things. The down side is that I had had the sweetest schedule in the world (Sunday through Thursday with Friday and Saturday off, and all evening shifts), and that, starting Monday, I'll be back to where I was a year ago -- with a schedule that changes every week, and will likely involve some instances of working until 9:30 one night just to get up and be back at the store by 8:00 the next morning.
When I applied for the Manager on Duty position, I anticipated these changes. The thing is that I knew I was willing to make these changes in order to be a Manager, but I'm not totally sure that it'll be worth it to be a Customer Service rep.
But, in the end, I'm willing to give it a try. I understand that Customer Service is basically the first step that I need to take if I want to be any sort of manager ever. And hey -- if it sucks, I can always go back to being a cashier.
I start on Monday. Wish me luck.
