Hello hello hello readers! I have good news and only good news to share! Well, maybe one bad news but whatever, I have a job so YAY ME.
I've spent one month looking for promoter jobs and.. you have to believe this no matter how much you refuse to but throughout Feb, I applied more than 10 jobs. MORE THAN 10 FREAKING JOBS but no, I didn't get employed. Until one miraculous day (at least I thought it was), some recruitment guy emailed me and asked me if I can work immediately. I saw his email right after I'm done watching The Note book. Yea, ikr. Like.. FINALLY! I get to watch The Notebook! It was THE BEST romantic movie I've ever seen. BETTER THAN TITANIC I dare to say! Ha! Ok anyways, I said YES and waited and waited and waited for his reply but NO. There wasn't any, so eventually I gave up on that particular job because I have two freaking good reasons to do so :-
#1 This guy replied me 10 days after my job application was sent and not to mention that the job I applied expired a long time ago before he can even think about hiring me. Pfft!
#2 I just don't like him. lol
Anyways! 3 days ago, while I was doing my usual thing which is looking for jobs online, THEN BAM!! I saw a (another) perfect job for myself! I hesitated for 10 minutes before applying that job but I applied in the end anyway and then, I got hired. I GOT HIRED. I freaking got hired! No words can describe how I felt that day. Lol saying "that day" as if it's months ago when it's barely 72hours ago. I was just SO HAPPY.
So I went to work the next day, with no sampling experience ever and the fact that I lied in my job application saying that I've done sampling job before when in reality it's what my sister did is just so.. cute. HAHAHA!
I spent idk-how-long running up and down the stairs, carrying four boxes of chocolate samples, with no help at all. And the sickest part is, people at the staff counter are the bitterest people in the world! I am not joking. Wait till I tell you about that middle-age guy who was not only not helpful, he was being incredibly not helpful at all! This makes no sense, I know but he was like "You have to look for William." and I was like "Where can I find William?" then he was like "William is gone" then I was like "Gone where?" and he just look at me. HE JUST SAT THERE AND LOOK AT ME. He did nothing and just looked at me. He didn't even bother to shrug or shake his head or anything, HE JUST FREAKING LOOKED AT ME. God knows how frustrated I was, ugh.
At the end of the day, I did very well with my job and thanks to those helpful people who helped me a lot!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. I don't know what to do without them, seriously. My colleagues are super friendly! Super helpful! Super funny! They are just SUPERB. And well, they all speak Cantonese and I just stand there.. awkwardly. Anyways!
My job is to hand out chocolate samples to eeeevvvverrryyyooonnneeee in the store, asking if they would like to try some Dove milk chocolates. HAHA. I have no idea how many times I've said the word "CHOCOLATES". I also have to push sales as in, asking people to buy some of the Dove chocolate bars.
You have to believe what I'm going to say here because it's the truth and only the truth. I sold 60 chocolate bars on my first day of work. I am telling you, my supervisor is gonna love me to death! Despite how much she hates me. HAHA
I only met my supervisor on my first day of work and she is freaking intimidating and bitter which reminds me of my previous ballet instructor. HAHAHA I wonder if they're related cz THEY LOOK SO ALIKE. Not to mention their attitude! Lmao. But frankly, I was intimidated.. AT FIRST. Because the next day, she called and asked me about the sales and stuffs and my goodness! She turned into a total opposite person and you know why?! I'm not even gonna let you guess. It's because she's not gonna check on me and she wants me to cover up for her if anyone with authority come and ask. HA! Soft spot :D Lol I'm so mean.
Another part of my job is to "check-in" with my supervisor everyday at 12 noon cz if I don't, she won't pay me. Wtf. And the final results of working for two days straight is *drum roll* I got fever right after I got home on the first day, my feet are blistered and they hurt so bad they went numb! I shoulder ached because I'm naturally weak, lol. It happens a lot. Heck I can't even sit and use the laptop or play the piano more than 2 hours straight! My shoulders are born problematic,lol.
I have 5 days of relaxation before I have to start working again so at the mean time, I'm just gonna do as little things as possible these few days. HAHA
