Oh I hope you get it I hope you like it.
It's very physical work you know.
Get some really good shoes!
Support stockings are an idea for you.

Keep me posted...

How do you know when the time is right? It has some down sides but I am still so excited so I am thiking it is the right thing to do. I will be taking probably $6 cut in pay and giving up my Saturdays but for some reason I still want this. Does that mean my heart is saying go for it? I really hope she calls me back soon so I know for sure.

Saturdays are very over rated--I finally got a gig that didn't have me working Saturdays--now I work every Sunday-- icon_biggrin.gif

If you feel that strongly about it, then go for it.

I'm not sure exactly all that you'll be required to do, but a bakery is fast paced, hard work. I used to have to be at the bakery at 5 sometimes 4...and I wasn't the first one there! As long as you know what it all comes with and your still excited, then Good Luck!

Her hours are 9-5 Tuesday thru Saturday. They only do cakes and gingerbread houses no cookies or anything like that. I know it will be hard work but I don't mind that I just dont want to dread getting up and going to work everyday like I do now.

Most retail bakeries I've been associated with or been a patron of are open till 6 at least --to catch folks on their way home--and open at 7 am. Interesting.

I'm assuming those our her "business" hours and you come in earlier for prep. If not...I'm jealous! icon_razz.gif Just kidding. I think it's great if you land a job you look FORWARD to going to. I think that's what we all want. A job we look forward to going to.

Her opening hours are 9-5, but I sure wouldn't count on coming in at 8.45.

My opening hours are 8.30-17.00, and I sure don't get there fifteen minutes ahead of time.

Get good shoes, support stockings and a massage therapist.

Other than that, have fun and I'm sure you'll learn lots!

Ok Ladies I know it has been a while but I thought I would fill everyone in on what happened. After the interview she did offer me the job but I had to turn it down because I was going to have to cut my salary in half lose my vacation time and holidays to take the job. So I told her I would love to help on Saturdays some if she ever needed me to help out. Well I went and helped tosay and had a BLAST!!!!! She is awesome I tell you! She asked me what time it was and I told her it was 11:45 and she said Great that gives me more time then I thought for the next two cakes due at 1!!!!! She is so good and fast! Anyway I just wanted to share how much fun I had!

That's great! I'm so happy for you! Sorry the job can't compete with what you already got going, but it's awesome you still have that opportunity to do caking there!

Part time is better than no time. If that suits you better, then enjoy it! And use it as a learning opportunity. And maybe, just maybe, she'll need you on that one day a week (Saturdays) permanently, if you're willing to do that for her. A good part-timer is better than a crappy full-timer.
