so the census folks called me. they were interested in me for one of various office positions. i was like, yay, good!
$11.25/hr. okaaaay, not so great, but for part-time work, whatever.
then the guy says it is a part-time job, 25 hours or so a week, but i have to be available for up to 40 hours per week
. i explained that i'm a student and go to school all day two days per week and do need time to read my books, so i couldn't really do 40 hours, especially if it were long term. he kinda danced around that question.
oh, also, training starts on monday and lasts for 1-2 weeks. i said that's okay. "but then i have to come tuesday?" "yes," he said. i'm like, okay, (i repeat) "i have class all day tuesday." i can't come from 8-5 monday through friday for two weeks in a row. then i mention that i'm on vacation for a week at the beginning of march. he talks to his supervisor. they say they'll call me back during the next round of hires.
i'm just like.. uh. they say census jobs are a good job for students, etc. but like.. my only conditions are that i'm unavailable tuesdays and thursdays (aside from my week off), yet they can't seem to work with that.
whateverrrrrrrrr. i'm starting to think about substituting again. just telling a school that i can sub any friday they need me. sigh.
