Saturday job update

February 1st, 2009 at 06:01 pm

Two weeks ago on a Saturday I had a working interview for a Saturday only position (2 per month). It seemed to go well and the employer was impressed with my work. He said that he would get back to me via email or phone because he had a couple other prospective employees scheduled for working interviews. He is currently interviewing for 2 other positions within the office as well (which is a BIG red flag especially in this economy). I'm not aware as to why there are so many vacancies in the office.

I received an email from him this week stating that an employee who has been with him for 20+ years had just recently asked him if she could pick up extra hours on Saturdays. So naturally he feels obligated to give her the hours. I understand that completely. Now I would think that before he advertised the position, he would check first with internal employees. But who knows! Anyway, he again thanked me for working that Saturday, stating that he thought I was a great worker and wants to keep my resume on file for possible future full-time or to fill in on an as needed basis.

At first I was a bit upset. As it is now, I work every Saturday between two offices. I was just looking to replace the one job with one that offers perhaps better working conditions and pay rate.

I do realize that I am fortunate to have 2 part-time Saturday jobs + a full-time job when so many people are losing their jobs. *crossing fingers* that it stays that way.

So right now I will stay where I am at. I will continue to scan the help wanted ads for a replacement Saturday position in my field. If something comes along that's fine, if not fine again!

    I thought if a company is hiring...they are obligated to advertise the position even if they intend to fill the position internally. I thought that's the law that no one really adheres to because who is checking?

    gamecock-I don't know if that applies to small businesses though or not (like businesses with less than 20 employees).
