I am currently a temporary employee and have been for the past 7 months. NOrmally it takes 9 months to get hired on if they are interested in you. They have 25 openings for the 3rd shift and I signed up to be considered. A lady I used to work with who started several weeks after me asked the supervisor if she was being considered, and he told her that she was in. She would just have to go on the interviews. I hope I have the same fate. I don't know about myself yet and the not knowing is killing me. I am going to be so upset if I don't get it. But when one door closes, another door opens. That is how I have learned to live. Wish me luck please.

I am going to inquire tomorrow if I happen to come across the supervisor at a good time when no one is really around. Thanks for the well wish.

I don't know. Maybe I should just wait and see what happens and not even ask. I don't know. I just really would like to know.

I am a nervous wreck. I am so worried that I am not going to get hired and that soon I will be out of a job. I might just inquire today so that I know or just wait it out. I don't know what to do, but I sure wish I could calm down. THe reason I am worried is that I missed 2 weeks in July because of bad side effects from bipolar meds. I was so dizzy and could hardly stand. I had medical excuses for both weeks. I just went home early last week because of a terrible leg ache. I was close to going to the er it was so bad. I know that there are other people that probably didn't miss any time so they have a better chance than me. I wish I could just quit worrying.

Jewel,
I have learned over the years to just ask for what I want.

There is nothing wrong in you approaching your supervisor and ask to be considered.

You had a medical excuse in the past and I don't really see how that could hurt your chances.

Supervisors are not mind-readers and believe it or not, it makes their job easier when they have employees who are willing to communicate.

So go and find out one way or the other and put your mind at ease!

jewel,

you are so right.

when one door closes, another opens.

I was holding my breath watching and waiting for a job offer to come thru so I could move.

The guy was taking his sweet time making the offer, but kept promising me a position.

I got tired of waiting and applied to two other companies.

I was hired on the spot with one of them.

It was the best move I could have made. The commute is shorter and MUCH easier, the pay is good, and I ended up doing a totally different job description and I am loving it.

So, chin up - the right thing will come along - keep believing that.

I asked my sup. who is new to the company and I am not too familiar with her if I was going to be considered for an interview and she said that she was sure that I would be. And she had a big smile on her face and said that they were in the process of working on that right now. That still didn't give me a straight answer as others were given already from another sup. who used to be my sup. I went to ask him a couple times on friday but he was not in his office. I am going to try on monday and see what happens. I will pray for the best.

I am starting to worry about my job situation again. If I got it or not. The funny thing is I don't even like it but want to work there because of the good benefits and pay. It is a really good company to work for. I just don't like my department and have been having anxiety problems really bad. I feel so sick right now just the thought of going in tomorrow. I wonder if this is all because I really want the job and I am afraid that I am not going to get it.

Hi jewel,

you wrote >>I wonder if this is all because I really want the job and I am afraid that I am not going to get it. ...

It could also be that you are in two minds about it? Reason is telling you that the job is good (pay, benefits), but your anxiety is high and you don't particularly like what you do there?. Just keep your mind open, hang in there.

eve,

You brought up a good point about the two mind thing. It is almost like they are working against each other. Today I was furious at work. I know at least two people had interviews and they started after I did. I have helped out different departments whereas these ones did not and I feel like I would be more of an asset to the company. I approached the sup. about it(the others getting interviews)and she said she would talk to the other sup. about what is going on and why I haven't had an interview. This is driving me crazy and is affecting me in many ways right now in my life. I like to plan ahead and without knowing whether or not I am going to be hired isn't helping me plan my financial future. I have a wedding dress and bands to pay for and I need money for my honeymoon in may. That is right around the corner. I will pray again tonight and not for the job. For my sanity.

Jewel

I found out today that the next round of interviews(I don't know when they are going to be) I am going to have one. I asked 2 different supervisors because I wasn't getting an answer. I feel a lot better about things now. The only thing is that it could be weeks away. I will keep everyone posted.

I am too the point where I don't care if I get the job or not. If I don't then it was not meant to be and I will find something else. Perhaps a part time job so that I can attend school full time. I am learning to just let life happen and I am trying to stop worrying about things that haven't even happened. Also fear of the unknown.

I am to the point where I wish that I got laid off and could collect unemployment. I feel like I can't go to work anymore due to anxiety and bipolar issues. I am holding on a very thin thread right now and I feel myself slowly falling apart.

I doubt I am going to get the job now because I haven't been going. I need to find something else and soon. I can't believe I blew my chances at something so good. Typical of me and my bipolar and anxiety problems. I can't hold a job down.
