have you ever had that exciting feeling when you would smile like a retard when you're walking, in the bus, opening the door, finding food to eat??
that happy feeling would make you feel sooooooooo good you wouldn't even mind passerby's listening to your awful singing and your horrible dancing?? well.. i did!
it was my off day on that particular thursday where I had to go to IKEA to make sure that we'd get our furniture or else we'd have to sleep on the floor and eat on the floor til it arrived.. who knows when cos my mastercard did not go through! so on that particular Thursday I got the payment settled and also the delivery date confirmed.. then being it a bad, cold summer.. I did not have the mood to shop although it was my off day.. so then I thought I would go to Kingsway for a walk since I haven't been there since I last purchased my two very cool hats..
It was that particular Thursday I passed by Lenscrafters.. I thought of just going in to look at the glasses and maybe getting a pair of glasses if it wasnt tooo expensive to start off my new semester this September.. then at the window I saw the most exciting post : Now Hiring, inquire within.
WALAUEHH!!! my face lit up and I was like jumping up and down!! (well i almost) went it and looked for the Manager, I asked what positions were available.. then I told her HOW MUCH I LOVED BEING IN AN OPTICAL SHOP. muahahhaha.. she loved me.. and I wanted to get that job right on the spot! but i had no resume with me.. so she (Michelle) told me to go in the next day at 930am just before my shift in EvelineCharles at 2pm ( oh yeah.. btw, i'm working in teh central booking center for all EvelineCharles location.. no longer in the academy.. the environment is different.. and I'm not sure whether I'd like it for the long run)
So then i went to Kingsway again the following day.. got my telephone interview, got my application forms filled in.. got my interview with the GM Michelle, and the Retail Manager Amber.. and YES!! i got the job!!
boon boon you must be soooo proud of me! i told them my manager back in Malaysia trained me both in retail and in the lab.. were they impressed!! :D Maybe you should write a reference letter for me.. so they know HOW awesome this assistant manager was.. muahahha...
so Today was my first day of Training with Lenscrafters, got a few more forms filled in.. and started my training on the computer.. learnt alot about diversity.. and how it is increasing in the world today. so the thing i learnt was : Treat others how THEY want to be treated. because the world today belongs to people from different backgrounds and not ALL people wants to be treated like how YOU want to be treated. the KEY to success!!
anyways, i learnt more about the company.. yada yada yada.. and I got a tour around the company.. they have 5 stations where the consultation of frames are done.. two stations to adjust frames.. and two pickup corners.. the manager room, locker area, staffs bathroom, staffs lounge.. and the LAB!! (boon boon I saw the gravel maker!! wooohoo!! and so the guy that brought me around, Sam, told me that we had plastic lenses and polycarbonate lenses.. ) no wonder its better than the ones in miri lah.. :)
The thing that is weird is that they don't make rimless glasses.. they have to send it off to Toronto to be made.. probably cos its polycarbonate and you get all that icky compressed plastic coming out.
well, I'm loving my new job. I'm the eyewear consultant aka frame stylist aka sales associate!
If you happen to be reading this blog and you are in Edmonton, and you need glasses.. look for me!!
