Today was my interview at the bakery...and I got the job!!!!!! THANK YOU to everyone who was praying!
Can I just say that God's timing is so perfect?! The day I went in to see if they were hiring, I was REALLY hesitant about it. I was having this battle in my mind as to whether or not I should even go in. In the end, I just gave it to the Lord and decided to do it. Well, today they told me that they had been talking that very day about how they needed more help!
They want to sit down and talk with each other about what exactly it is that they want me to do and are going to call me next week. I'll be starting the following week! From what we talked about today, I'll be working part time (for now), doing food prep/baking and working the store as well. When they have events to cater, I'll help out with that. There is a 300 person party that we'll be doing at the end of February..and they do pretty high-end stuff! Once summer rolls around, I'll help out with farmers market as well! I am so excited about this!!
While they don't really do cakes like I've done, they have had requests and who knows maybe down the road they'll decide to add it to the list of things they offer since they have someone who has experience with it. One thing they said about my cakes was that what really stood out to them is my attention to detail. I'll be the first to tell you that when it comes to cake I can be a perfectionist. :) Anyways, they really like that because it shows them that I desire to make things appealing to the eye which is what they want.
The owners (a husband and wife team) are really nice and I think we're going to get along really well. They already told me I could have the Friday off that the youth group from BBC will be here...yay! They were totally fine about me wearing skirts too (I asked because he mentioned providing a bakers uniform when I start working in the kitchen more, so I wouldn't mess up my clothes)...he said, "Hey, if that's what you're comfortable in then I don't care!" Also, they aren't open on Saturdays and Sundays. Obviously with catering events and farmers market there will be some Saturdays I'll have to work, but I'll never have to work on Sunday. He said himself that he doesn't work on Sunday, and that he likes to have it off. Yay!
Hmmm...did I miss anything?
They have an espresso bar, so I'll learn how to make different coffees. :)
If there's bread at the end of the day, I can take a loaf home. Family & friends get a 20% discount when I'm paying. If I'm working < 3 hours, I can have a snack like a cookie or something. If I'm working > 3 hours, I can have a sandwich, soup & drink. Yum!
When we cater events, we get paid more...so it'll be like a mini bonus every once in a while. :)
My commute, isn't really even one. It's only a couple of minutes from my house!
Anyways, if you can't tell, I'm SO EXCITED about this! Looking back I can definitely see God's hand working in all of this. He is SO GOOD!
Well, if you're ever in the Okanogan area stop in and I'll serve you up a yummy muffin and coffee or something. =)
