Gabe has his first job....maybe? Update!
Update on Gabe. The Tom's Strawberry flavor toothpaste is working. He still isn't brushing as much as needed but he has started and that is progress. Thank you for all the wonderful advice and support!
Gabe had his first interview today. He interviewed at a local movie theater. He looked good, brushed teeth, clean brushed hair (still no hair cut but I'll call clean brushed hair a win), dress pants with a button up shirt, and he even shaved the little facial hair he had! :)
I think he got the job but Gabe isn't so sure because the interviewer said she thought "she may hire him". She described the job and what he needed for the uniform. She also said she thought he would be a good fit and he would like working there. She took copies of his ID and social security card and had him fill out a form. She also said she needed his banking information to set up direct deposit because that is how they pay. He doesn't "think" she gave him an orientation date.
I have to drop the direct deposit information off sometime tomorrow. I think he was hired but the manager did not speak in concrete terms and Gabe is having trouble reading between the lines. Oh how I wish I could have been in the interview with him just so I could put him at ease. Well, I'm hoping when I drop the paper work off I'll get to ask about the orientation date. Am I wrong or does it sound like he got the job? I mean why else would they request the direct deposit information if they weren't interested in hiring him?
We turned in his banking information this morning and he is now setup for orientation on the 22nd. :) He is working man. We have to get his uniform and he has to get a Food Handlers Card within 30 days from the 22nd. He is excited and a little nervous. I don't think he likes the idea of giving up his weekends but he is already listing the Video Games he wants to buy with his first paycheck. :) I'm very proud of him and I hope this ends up being a good experience for him.
