How do I cancel a shift at work?
I do martial arts (my passion) and it is my grading for 3 rd dan black belt (very big deal). I go to uni and just got offered a part-time position at a pharmacy assistant. They rang and gave me my shifts. And my very FIRST shift is the exact time of my grading which is one of the biggest events in my life. What do i do? Should i cancel the shift considering they might withdraw the job offer because of it? I do need a job, but i am getting youth allowance so it's not the end of the world if they do withdraw the offer. Theres always other jobs.

Call out, you will probably lose your job but this is what you have been training for right? If you get an allowance you are still young and will be able to have another opportunity at a job.

From your questions and the circumstances you present, it seems, evidently, you yourself are much inclined towards the grading event. I think, you may give them the true reason and go for the grading. If they excuse you then fine, or else, as you say, it is not the end of the world for you... More

So when they called asking if those dates were okay.. You said yes? *facepalm. So call back ASAP and tell them the truth and see if they can work around it. Do not just call off.. That looks terrible for you, especially on the first day. The longer you wait to call and explain, the worse it will be.
