    Hi guys Herby here, just thought i d let you know i got offered the job for aol tech support, they will write to me with a start date as the building is still being re-wired just now.
    Still not settled on taking the job because of the 4pm-midnight shift,the other shift is 8am-4pm which iam fine with but i am not saying no just yet.
    Will call them and see if the hours are set in stone.

    Thanks for the good luck wishes guys, cheers again.

    SAS i am at the erskine branch, it s local to where i live, it was the old AA building, so it s still getting re-wired.
    Once this is complete they will contact me to offer me a start date and a contract.
    So you reckon theres a good chance the hours will be flexible once in the job??
    P.s i ve got a holiday booked for the 17th july for 2 weeks, i told them about this at the interview, you reckon they will be cool about honouring this break??
    Cheers again for the feedback guys.

    If you told them about the holiday and they still made you an offer, they will probably cut you some slack. Wouldn't hurt to remind them of that tho, when you accept the position (assuming you do, of course).

    I do think you will have a better chance of getting the hours you want after you accept and have worked there for awhile. Once they know you, like you, and see you are a good worker, they will be more likely to bend a bit for you.

    Ohh mate I used to be on BT Faults 151 helpdesk, it w3as a living nightmare, lol, I went to work pissed off and came home pissed off. A day of ignorant people hurling abuse at you for the c0ck-ups of the even worse engineers kinda wore you down a bit. :cry:

    What section do you work in?

    Oh and by the way Sas congrats on the job and I wish you well in the future. :D

    err, July? as far as I'm aware you well entitled to holiday time under UK legislation, and especially that far in advance, i usually dont even mention it to them unless its in the first 2 months of my employment

    companys generally offer you certain ammount of days holiday aquired for every month worked, adding up to your total annual allowance, they dont often mind if you take more than you have earned, on the basis that they will dock your final pay packet if you quit before earning enough days to cover your holiiday
    works a bit different in part time jobs, as I think you dont get holiday allowance, but are still entitled to unpaid vacation without fear of getting the sack

    :daz Hello SAS well done in new job :beers2 . I have a couple of questions to ask is there any overtime, or can you work part time. The resaon for asking at the moment my present job is paying the bills Etc but if I were to take on a job like that I would be doing it for the experiance as the wages are low and I would need lots of over time or being able to work part time so I can work full time in present job. :juggle

    Alright law,

    If you go to Becogent's website here. You should be able to find some part-time jobs available, mainly in Airdrie I think, as that is what I am considering at the moment.
