Apparel Specialist

So apparently over the last week my manager has been giving me these odd jobs to see how I handle them. Then yesterday at work she started asking me all these weird questions. So I decided to ask her what was going on. I am no longer a "Temporary" worker, I am going to be a part time employee and am now the Apparel Specialist!! They are also training me in all the other departments so I can be the Store Specialist. I was pretty excited, it should be official after Christmas. That's when I'll get my raise and stuff. This is good news compared to the last few weeks. On December 3rd, Jesse was laid off. There wasn't enough work to keep him on, so he filed for unemployment the next day. Then this last Wednesday the unemployment office called to confirm it. The next day Titan Mechanical called and asked him to come back on Monday(today). Apparently he would rather pay Jesse to work for him, then pay Jesse and not have him work for him. But they told him they would keep him til Christmas, but can't make any promises after that. Needless to say things have been a little stressful around here lately. Hopefully we will be able to get things figured out.

Yeah Kimi!! I am glad you got a promotion. I am sorry about Jesse's lay off I know how stressfull that can be I will probably be laid off in mid january, they just announced layoffs at my job and I can't imagine that I am not on the chopping block since I am not even an official employee yet, still interim status. I am glad they took him back at least long enough to get you through the holidays. I hope things work out after that.
