Interview and jury duty obligations.
- 0Apr 7, '13 by AlaskaHopefulHello AN!
I need some advice. In January I received as summons to do jury duty for the month of March, I requested that I be excused until June, because I was in school and didn't want to ruin a semesters worth of hard work.
I have an interview for a ED Tech position on the 12th of April. I have applied to many positions, but this is my first interview since getting my CNA certificate, 5 months ago. I want this, I need this, but I will have to eventually tell my prospective employers about this hiccup in scheduling.
When is the best time to mention that I will need time off in June?
At the interview? After getting an offer?
The shift is 3, 12 hours nights. The days (or nights in this case) are varied. So it could be any night of the week. The recruiter said that scheduling is usually done 3 to 4 weeks in advance. She also said that it could be from 7PM to 7 AM or 10PM to 10AM or anything in between.
Thank you in advance for the opinions, advice, and repliesLast edit by AlaskaHopeful on Apr 7, '13
- 0Apr 8, '13 by HouTx GuideWow! Jury Duty for an entire month??? I have never heard of a month long summons, unless it is for a Grand Jury. I had to do that once, but it just consisted of having to call in each Monday to see if they needed me. Turned out that I was not needed but it was a major inconvenience.
Agree with PPs - best not to mention it until after you get the offer.

I have to start calling in everyday after 5pm at the beginning of the month. If my number is selected I would need to show up a 8am the next morning. If I am selected during that process then I will have to go in, depending on what kind of case it is will determine how long it will be.
If I get the offer to work at the ED (fingers crossed), then I will tell them. I know its not good to be deceiving, it goes against my nature, but I need this tech position. Bills are piling up
