Help! I'm having a lot of stress now! I'm in a huge bind!?
Ok, I have another job interview tomorrow as a creative photography sales rep. The manager is looking for someone who has "absolutely no committments" and can work full time hours, like 40-50 hrs a week. It's not your typical 9-5 job. The person that referred said you can pretty much set your own hours. There's a problem here: If I'm offered the job, she might want me to work weekends, because it's a sales job involving photo editing/consulting, and making appointments that require to go over to people's houses--no, this is not a scam like Vector Marketing, it's a real job where you'll make about $600/wk from commissions. I have a weekend job at Six Flags until the end of October, and say if I'm offered this job, and she wants me to start right away and wants me to work weekends, what should I do if she doesn't let me give two week notice to my current job, and like if she won't give me two week notice, should I quit immediately at my other job. SO THESE ARE THE TYPES OF QUESTIONS I'LL ASK AT THE INTERVIEW TOMORROW LIKE WHAT THE SCHEDULING IS LIKE FOR REPS. But if I want my current job to be a reference, then I have to give the courteous two week notice. If the interviewer needs someone immediately then I can tell her that I can put in 40-50 hours including working nights during the week and still give notice to my current job at Six Flags. If worst comes to worst, then I'll have to ask off on the weekends at the last minute and they'll just have to understand. This is hypathetically speaking if I do get the job offer. So if I do get the job offer, I'm pretty royaly screwed and lucky at the same time-talk about a paradox here. Any advice? I'm really worried and would hate to have conflicting schedules keep me from getting the right job or having good references. Oh yeah! I just read this article about a company called the Megacolor (and no that's not the company I'm interviewing at) Anyway, the Megacolor company offers people the job, then the new employees give two weeks notice to their old job, ok, so once the two week notice is up, the new employees are fired from Megacolor company, like someone just quitted a good job for this company, and all these employees were screwed and have no references---I DON'T WANT TO FALL VICTIM TO THAT. Anyway, here's the link to the article so that you'll have a better idea what I'm concerned about: http://www.indeed.com/forum/cmp/Megacolor/get-job-at-Megacolor/t66055

Girl, you need to slow down and live! First off, you do need to do the right thing and give the 2 week notice where your working now.

There is alot of "what if " there. I suggest you deal with one problem they already know your working because you would have put that on your resume so if they don't mention it ask when your in the interview exactly when they want you to start. Also the 2 weeks notice you said is courteous so you don't really have to... More
