    Congrats for doing the interview! Don't panic too much about the length of time, short and sweet doesn't always mean a bad thing :heart: That's great that they said they'll be in touch tomorrow, waiting to hear back can feel daunting so a nice quick process sounds good :smile: Best of luck!

    Also what I don’t get is she asked how long notice I would need from current job to leave. I said about two weeks. But what if I don’t want to leave primark because of the extra money? 
    Like if I want a part time job as a peer supoort worker do I have to leave primark because it’s on the weekend

    is it a thing where you don’t mix that different sort of jobs ?

    This has lots of info :)

    I think it's independent to their contract so you want to see your primark contract and get a copy of theirs to find out if they have any rules 

    Commonly not working jobs that conflict etc 

    But you should be able to work both many do but just note it's hard work and I think with roles like peer support it's important to monitor that you don't get burnt out so you can still perform your best :)

    Hey Shaunie,

    Just wanted to pop on to say well done for going to your interview as you said you was scared. Interviews can be quite daunting, so it's super positive that you went to it :heart:

    Missed the phone call ahh. Sent voicemail saying they will ring back
  • ShaunieShaunie Posts: 13,396 Born on Earth, Raised by The Mix
    It’s gone past five and they haven’t rang back. Ugh I thought my phone was on loud. 

    I will take that as I haven’t got it lol

    Thanks

    But I didn’t get it
    Apperenetly did really well, I guess they would say that tho and would of loved me to work for them. I scored the same number as someone else But it was a matter of they could drive and I can’t & would be difficult to get to people’s houses as it’s quiet rural

    I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get it @Shaunie but well done for going through the interview process - it sounds like you really impressed them! Fingers crossed you'll be able to find something else, maybe even closer to home =)
  • JordanJordan Posts: 342 Super Moderator
    Well done for going through the interview process @Shaunie, even though you didn't get it is still a valuable learning experience. It sucks that it came down to who could drive and who could not, but at least that means you were incredibly talented and skilled! :)

    Hope the job search goes well, and I am sure you will find something similar  to this role if that's what you want

    Personally I don't know if there's a peer support worker position in care homes and if there is one, you might want to consider. The job you've applied for is something to do with agency and it requires a lot of travelling from each individual's house to house which puts a lot of stress compared to working just inside like a care home where you don't even need a car depending on where you live. This is from my personal experience when I tried to apply one so if you feel bad about I what I said, please take my word for it. <3

    I wish you best of luck on your next move @Shaunie I hope my advice will be useful to you.

    Well done @Shaunie - you still came away with experience of doing an interview, so it will help for the next time! x
