It can't be that because they're immediately hiring new people to replace them =/ This is the first time I've seen it since I started working there, and it seems like the people in charge of it just got really cranky all of a sudden :lol: They just like wipe out half the staff and bring new people in within a few days. I've put in for the last 3 full time positions that have opened up and never got any of them because they ignored my shift request form (and everyone else's) and just brought in brand new people. No wonder people call our facility 'the revolving door' :lol:

Is it possible they're hiring people in at a lower rate? Or are the people in charge changing, and hiring people they like instead?

The same people are in charge that have always been. We do have a new RN supervisor but she doesn't have any say in who gets hired, just in who gets fired.

Anyway, now my current job is calling me and I'm afraid to call back, cuz I don't know if they're calling to fire me or if they're calling to offer me that full-time position. And I don't want to tell them I'll take the full-time position before I know what's going on with the other place I applied to. Life is tough.

Had a jobinterview yesterday. I think it went okay. If I do get the job, I won't have a clue what to do though. Didn't get any off it. :lol:

I feel like at interviews they just bombard you with all the information humanly possible. I get confused too :lol:

Two weeks this Sunday I'm doing a 10 hour shift lol so much for getting a few Sunday's off for doing college stuff!
Like don't get me wrong I'm so happy I have a job but I'm really struggling to get the balance between work and college :( I just need to really sit down and schedule everything to find time.
They want most of our work in before Christmas so we're not stressing come the new semester in the middle of January.

Left a follow up message with Pepsi yesterday as it's been 2 weeks since my phone interview, got no response today. =/ Hopefully that just means they're still in the decision process, as they said they would hopefully have a decision by this week or possibly next week. Just hoping I'm not back at square one, as I don't think there'll be many more postings for winter positions. Really hard not to feel discouraged right now.

Dressed up as a vampyre for work. The reception was strange. One coworker won't come near me. I thought I was going to be alone in this endeavor, but luckily my lovely assistant editor friend dressed as Rosie the Riveter. Only problem? She has to go out on an interview. Dressed as Rosie.

What's wrong with that? She's a badass!  :P

Two hours into my shift, the internet and telephone in the office stopped working. We sat around and waited for the IT guy to fix it for an hour or so, but he couldn't find the problem, so we all went home. :lol:

Apparently for this circus it is.
The second I get a call from the other facility I applied for and everything goes through, I'm handing in my badge and that will be the last my current facility will ever see of me. They don't even deserve getting a two weeks notice.

Managers are doing interviews all day today for the next tech who'll be working with us. I'm in charge of the written test they'll take after the interview. I'm excited. I had to take almost the same test a couple months ago.

i was supposed to get off at 2 today but last night my manager texted me and changed it to 6, damnit. normally i wouldn't mind because $$$ but it's halloween so it's interfering with trick or treating time, and i've had one day off in the past two weeks because they've called me to come in on all the other ones. i really like this job other than that but this shit is already getting on my nerves, i'm off tomorrow and sunday and i think i'm just gonna turn my phone off so they can't tell me i have to come in :P
