I got a Job!

JoAnn_FlaAugust 19, 2012

Finally after 2 years of waiting I got the job at the school in the cafeteria. I was hired 2 yrs ago but was never called in to work. I reapplied last week, they called me in an I got it. It's just part time which is fine with me. I have to get out of this house!

Joann, congratulations. When my children left home, I was bored and lonesome so I got a part time job in retail. My favorite one was a book store. I had part time jobs 4 times over the years and worked as long as it was fun. I think your job would pay better.

Joann, that's great--when do you start? You're a good cook so it should be fun for you. And the best part is you'll have lots of vacation days ;-)

Good for you Joanne. I think you will get a kick out of seeing kids. Maybe decorating the kitchen for holidays?

Good for you! What grades are in the school - I'm wondering if you'll see cute little kids or high school (of course some of them are cute too - just not little).

That's so great. You get out of the house, get paid, and aren't locked in to 40+ hours a week.

Congrats!

Good for you! Sounds perfect. I hear you about needing to get out of the house. I stopped working two years ago and I am going nuts. A PT non-stressful job would be ideal -- something to do and some income. You are my role model.

Can't wait to 'hear all about it' once you start! We need to know what's 'in' and what's not for kids these days.

I worked 2 days already, its great! yesterday was a snap but today I am wore out! Having to lean over the steam table and serve over 400 kids in my line can be back breaking. We had 2 accidents today. A light exploded on the steam table and the boss slipped & fell on the rubber mat. I think they are both fine now. I worked a little later today which is good too.
Food now is a bit different and suppose to me healthier. The pizza has a whole wheat crust (not great & rather stiff) other changes come from your presidents wife M.O.

That's great, Joann! I'm sure it will be an adjustment but you'll do good.

I went to work at Williams-Sonoma when I was in my early 60's and worked 8 years, most of the time one day a week, more during the hoiday season. I had my check direct deposited and did some traveling to Europe a few times with the "proceeds". Had to have a little help from DH with that. Although he doesn't like to travel he didn't mind me going with friends.

Good News and congrats Joann! When my daughter was in elementary school many years ago, I was hired to work at the cafeteria and I loved it too! I was the server, like you, I got to know alot of the kids back then and even today I will run into them and they still call me Miss Renee or The Lunch Lady. The hours were perfect! My hours were from 9-1 and the kids got out at 2 so I had an hour to do my errands. When she didn't have school, I didn't have to work. It was the perfect job.
