First job interview

18 Jun

It’s the 梅雨 (rainy season) in Tokyo now. But at least so far, it hasn’t rained so much.

Last Tuesday night, it rained really hard…there was even (lightning and thunder).
Other than that, it’s only rained a couple days recently…and only a little bit.
So far, this year’s 梅雨 (rainy season) in Tokyo isn’t bad.

As I mentioned in an earlier post (click here), my oldest daughter wants to get a part-time job after school.

Her first job! I still think of my kids as my “babies”!

I agreed that she could work a few hours after school…as long as it doesn’t make her too tired for her “real job”—as a high school student!

So, today she went on her first job interview. It was at a ramen restaurant near our house.
They told her that they will call her on Saturday with the results of the interview.

If she begins working at that ramen restaurant, I’ll probably stop by there after work every once-in-while when she’s working! 🙂

I remember my first job interview. It was at a “Wendy’s” fast-food shop near my house in Florida when I was sixteen.
I was offered the job and I accepted it. So my first job was at that Wendy’s after school.

    Yay! Congraluations to her! I’m very happy for her. I cannot believe how fast she’s growing up. So, Dominoes Pizza? What will be her duties there?

    I vaguely remember you working at Wendy’s. My first job was cleaning at a movie theater at age 14. I only did it each Saturday mornings for about 4 hours a week. It was far from a glamorous job, but I got into all the free movies I wanted, whenever I wanted, and could bring as many friends as I wanted. Needless to say, I had alot of friends and we saw alot of movies. 🙂 My 2nd job was at Taco Bell in the mall.

      My daughter takes orders and helps prepare pizzas.

      And as many free movie tickets as you want is a nice part-time job perk!

    My daughter didn’t get the job for her first interview (they wanted someone who could work longer hours than she’s able to).

    But she had another job interview and she got that job.
    So, now she’s an employee at Domino’s Pizza. Her first day at work is tomorrow.

    (As an employee, she can get pizza for half-price! 🙂 )

    Awww your eldest daughter sure is growing up too fast here, she should be enjoying her teenage life but I guess she wishes to learn to be more responsible and I admire that with the younger generations. She is a good example to the other rest of the teenagers around the world. Good for her. I do hope she gets the job. For me apart from learning something new in life, the idea of receiving my 1st ever paycheck was unforgettable. I think I still kept my 1st dollar and with my fulltime job eventually I used my 1st paycheck as a fulltime worker to buy myself a gold ring which now I have given to my grandmother. Her advise to us granddaughters was with our 1st paycheck, to buy something of value and precious so we will always have financial luck. I did but now Ive passed on the ring to her. Thats my grandmother’s theory 🙂

    Again, I hope your daughter will hear favorable news from the restaurant.

      Did you buy your grandmother a present with your first salary?
      It’s very nice!

        Actually I bought something for my parents with my 1st salary but when I moved out of my parent’s home to follow my husband and quit my job, I decided to give my grandmother the ring I bought with my first salary. She’s very happy to received it as she always pointed out how much she liked my gold jewellery ^_^ I’ve got another gold ring I plan to give her very soon when I go home.

        You’re very nice to your grandmother.
