Ok, so i work a couple jobs with school. Well ive always wanted to work in this one ski shop, but he didnt need anyone till this year. I bought all my skis there and stuff for like the last 6 years. So this year he hires me. I've been there for 2 months. Its kinda temporary thing since he gets virtually no business after the winter and xmas are over. Now a couple weeks ago i find out this new, bigger place moved in in the town over. So i apply there just to see what happens, and i actually get the job which is fucking awesome. Now today i interview with the second shop, the new one. He tells me, i cant have you working in two places at the same time, its kinda company policy. The catch is though, this place wants to keep me for the spring and summer so its more of a real, permanent job. He will give me like 30 hours a week selling and working on skis ( i couldnt ask for a better job in my entire life). The thing is though, ive always been loyal to the first shop. This year he took a chance hiring me with no industry experience, and has trained me in a ton of stuff over the last month, 2 months. So, do i take the job at the second shop, and kinda throw it in the first guys face? Thats what it seems like, or stay at the first shop where my loyalty is, and pass up the other opportunity...I'm kinda stuck, but leaning towards the better place with more hours.
Talk to the little store that you are loyal to and tell the guy that you really want to continue working for him but you need hours and a permanent job. If he wants you to stay, he will work it out for you. If he doesn't, at least you tried to be loyal and you can go to the other place.
same exact thing happend to me a few weeks ago, and i talked to my first boss about it and i told him that if i did go to the other job, if he ever needed my help to call me. ha actuly encouraged me to go to the other store. so i mae bouth happy.
'what?' Lauren every time you ask her a question for the first time!
skiing what i thought this was a porn site and every one i was talking to were sexy ppl ..i thought skiing was a sex term we all uesed. damn!-twintiprider
yeah man, support the little guy. Stick it to the man, and stay where your loyal. For sure talk to your boss though. Let him know whats up and on your mind, and you can work it out i'm sure. People usually listen. Throw in a little guilt trip about how you need the money for your newly pregnant girlfriend or something.
I like that idea. I go from 3-6 at the new place tommorrow to see what happens. I'm just gonna talk to Heinz, the owner of the small place and tell him what the deal is, and if he ever needs help any other season i'd be more than happy to.
Hahaha... mighty ducks.
Kevo has it right. Go with his. Classy way to tell your old boss that you still want to work there, but he isn't fulfilling what you want and need.
It's the batontwirlertwistshakebakecakeholehumperdinkkink rail.
not a hard decision. If the small shop guy couldn't afford to keep you around, he would drop you without thinking twice. Its business. If you tell him that the larger shop is going to keep you over the summer and give more hours, he will understand. Its not like your cheating on your boyfriend, your going after a better job. If he is profesional, he will totally understand and there won't be any hard feelings.
