I'm in a bit of a dilemma...
So, the facility I did clinical at during CNA training, that is a teaching facility, did not hire me because I think I mentioned I was going to apply for the VA as my first job or whatever, stupid, stupid, stupid, terrible mistake number 1. Number 2, I apply at a bunch of facilities, one of them being where my ex-works at, and I didn't get that job either but was hoping to because it was part time, during the nights, and on weekends. I didn't seem very open to other positions because I think the lady I interviewed with was asking me about other posts. Big mistake number 2. 3. I apply at a facility that is owned by the company that owns the facility where my ex-works at, so I guess they're the property of a big company. This facility is where most of my classmates have applied at, and I got to interview with them, and they said I could work for them. I guess they hire everybody as my classmates say.
My problem is that I was offered the job right on July 1 and I couldn't start orientation until July 25. I'm not hurting to pay bills, but I would like to make some cash for the summer before school starts back up. My point of the problem is that school starts back up August 28th. I don't want to work on the 25th for an introduction to the facility and then two weeks till school starts I have to put in a two-week notice.
They've paid for drug testing and fingerprinting, and that's it.
Can I call them and say,"I just wanted to call and say that I can't accept the position because of school scheduling conflictions"? Will it look bad on me, and will that mean that if I decline the job after they've done fingerprinting and drug testing, that I am ineligible for rehire? I'd like to work for them in case I don't get accepted into a nursing school
, or I fail nursing school or whatever other reason that prevents me from getting my nursing degree, so I have something to fall on.
The lady that I had to go to is super nice, and I feel awful because of that whole "trusting applicants" and stuff.
Oh yeah, one more thing, it was a full-time position, so for me, grades come first before work. The schedule I would work would be sporadic like I wouldn't get Saturday and Sunday off, it just works four on, take two off and then after the two off days, work another 4. They do it I believe because people are quitting and I guess it bores those who have been there, so they don't have a standard schedule.
The facility inside is beautiful, like Sheraton hotel nice because it was originally going to be a Hilton hotel, so it was bought out after construction completed by corporate.
