I got the job!

Just thought I'd update you guys...

Yesterday I got a call from The Children's Place, saying they'd like to offer me a seasonal position! Yay!

I was half awake when they called in the morning (hubby and I decided to sleep in since he didn't have to go into Verizon until later in the day) so I called them back a few hours later and told them that I was definitely still interested! They said the 3rd manager (who seems to be the one in charge) is out til Tuesday but they would put me on her list of calls to make so that she could figure out what day this week I can come in and start training.


Like my friend that also works retail was saying, there really wasn't much she couldn't do while she was pregnant at work - the only thing I can think that might be a problem is if I need to lift/carry boxes. I can carry/lift some, but not a whole lot. Other than that though, I don't think there's much that should be an issue so I shouldn't have any problems.

I get a 25% employee discount there too, which is also good on sale and clearance items. I could see this being bad, especially since I started eying some cute little long sleeved polos while there the other day! Mom said though that if there's anything I want, to let her know and she'll give me the money for it so I can buy it and use my discount, even though it'll be from "Grandma" hehe... they'll start getting their spring stuff in come mid-December or so too and I'd like to get a cute little suit-type outfit for Jay for Easter, so I'm sure the discount will come in handy for that too!

I am excited though - I've been sitting home bored for far too long and I look forward to having something to do during the days!


  1. Yay, congrats! That'll be a huge help, I'm sure. I worked clothing retail for my summers and winter breaks in college, and I don't ever remember having to lift any large boxes or anything--just shoe boxes :) Though I would get sore from standing for so many hours, so being pregnant you might get even more sore. But I'm sure you'll be fine, and maybe there will be a chair to sit at behind the register when you're ringing people up.

    The discount is definitely a great benefit, though I may have splurged a bit more than I should have (just be sure not to spend your entire paycheck right back in the store). Good luck at the new job, and have fun (but not too much fun ;) shopping!

  2. Congratulations. It should be fun during the next few months!
