Offered Hospital job and I declined but...

  1. 0
    I applied for a hospital job online sunday night monday morning I was called in for an interview with 2 hours notice. I went totally unprepared and was late for interview. At the time they said they didnt know shift, hours, days etc.. About 30 mins ago I received a call and was offered the position however I declined because it is night shift and I have a small child and my husband doesnt get home until 11:30pm. Anyway instantly after hanging up the phone I regretted saying no and called back asap to accept the offer. Honestly if they say yes I have no clue what i'm going to do about childcare but getting my foot in the door is a big deal. Now I'm here waiting for the director to decide if she still wants me. Stressful all around the odds were already against me and I just made it worse.

    Good Luck Hope you get the job, and will be able to work things out with child care . I know if I did not have my mother to lean on I'd be up a creek without a paddle and not be able to work the job I have.

    GOOD DEAL! Usually hospitals have 12 hours shifts, so if you're full timer, you'd only work 3 shifts a week. You should be able to work out a schedule with you husband. Congratulations and good luck to you!
