Yesterday, I was so happy to go to a interview at Arrowhead Products. I met with Manny, after showing my birth certificate and photo i.d. I put on my old work shoes knowing I would be able to walk into the plant. This is my dream job. The company that I have been wanting to be a part of for so long. This is my time to shine.
Walking into the plant I felt this happy feeling of, yes the part’s that I worked with in a past job. The work bench that holds important parts that make an airplane work. The sound of tools and the people that make this company grow. I saw machines that I have made part with many years ago. I looked around thinking, this is the company I want to grow with.
He asked me a few questions and nerves took over. I just wanted to scream at my self after realizing I had said safety was second. I know the answer is “Safety First”. My friends at my last job would be rolling on the floor laughing because I was always the one cleaning up and making safety the number one thing in that shop. Then on to blue prints. I do know how to read them, it’s just been so long since I’ve had one in front of me…I wanted to kick myself.
I know I can pass the work in America, drug test will be another easy one and I haven’t had a ticket or been to jail “ever”. Could they dig deeper into all the good I do for others, those quiet things I do that I don’t need a pat on the back for or a movie made from it. They will probably see that I am challenging unemployment with a charge I didn’t do. It is the biggest red flag of my life right now. It will stick with me for life and my dream job will never happen. My identity has been stolen again, I had a call from a bank two weeks ago that my loan had been approved. What loan? I don’t need a loan, I need a job.
Maybe they will call my last boss and find out the amount of hours I worked for him to get the job done. How I pushed others to do their best every day. That I am truthful and I don’t let you down.
Arrowhead Products I am the right person for you Insulation Fabricator position.
