Normally I just read AstroCenter’s astrology with a pinch of salt.
Saturn retrograde is opposite Neptune on Wednesday, and you might deal with a situation at work that leaves you feeling confused. Someone may be deliberately deceiving you, or it could be that you are not receiving the full story on a work-related issue. You may not be sure which way to turn due to uncertainty surrounding you now.
But this time, AstroAdvice gave the almost same advice (at least to me)!
Someone may be keeping a secret from you that could affect your future. Don’t take time off or slow down when there is so much on the line. The more you can do to secure your position or to simplify your life, the better.
Increase salary ooo hoo!
After the retail sales interview, I was really happy. I finally got another job, albeit in retail sales which I didn’t want to go back into again. It was a famous company selling branded goods, brands that I like.
Then the interviewer sms me that my basic salary was raised RM200 and the probation period was 3 months. During the interview, she told me the probation period was 6 months. I remembered thinking, so long?
Wah, good. :)
Sum Thing Wong
Then on my 1st day at work for this job, we already had security-sensor issue > Nobody would dare steal our products!
After that, we found out that what the interviewer told DeOtherPermanent was different from mine!
Oh yeah, there’s an opening department store song and everyone must stand straight, quiet like during Negaraku! This is not something wrong but it’s .. it seems some companies from Japan do this. Ya ma tei!!
When DeOtherPermanent asked Senior about commission, DeOtherPermanent said Senior was like didn’t want to explain.
1 leg kick setup
To be honest, Senior just got out of bed and didn’t have enough ciggie and sleep. She had been setting the counter up till 1am! Alone!
“HQ punya orang tak datang tolong?” I was shocked.
“Malam baru datang la,” she sighed. She shook her head, tired and blur.
I was supposed to setup the outlet in KLCC. *shudder* I was going to setup all by myself there?
Then I asked her, “Ada apa nak train?” I was hoping she would brief about the products description and how to open memo (receipt) or show me any guidelines.
“Nanti,” Senior said.
DeOtherPermanent confided quietly to me alone, “Saya nak berhenti lar.”
“HA?! AWAK NAK BERHEN-” I was shocked.
“EH!” She slapped my arm.
“Ok ok. Mengapa?” I whispered.
“Saya rasa tak ngam (suitable) lar, macam tak selesa. Tadi saya tanya interviewer pasal commission, dia cakap tak sama dengan awak.”
“Apa dia cakap?”
“Tak pasti lar.”
“Nanti tanya dia lagi la. Dia akan datang.”
“Lagipun, saya tak boleh kerja dengan Senior tu. Nak dia ajar macam tak mau. Takut kami tau.”
I felt that too. Senior might have felt she was threatened by us. She shouldn’t be. She had been working in this company for 3 yrs already, so many years of experience while the 2 of us were newbies to this company. Read Perporated leather and Count stock.
All I felt was there was something fishy going on. I wasn’t getting the correct information or information I wanted.
HQ ppl was here!
When interviewer, supervisor and another manager arrived, this manager reminded me of my previous company’s General Manager. Aunty. Her eyeliner was smudged to the lower eyelids – not waterproof maybe? She wore black shirt dress and had a huge bow hair clip on her hair bun at the bottom of her neck. I liked the shirt dress but her bun made her looked older and matrony when this is a hip brand (supposed to be anyway).
We asked BowBunManager lots of questions and she also explained a lot of things. I learnt more during that period than the whole day there. Among them (which Senior didn’t tell us): Made in China and You lost it, you pay it. Then BowBunManager told us about Annual Leave and bonus (up to 3 months bonus!). I asked about Emergency Leave. She gave a load of words but didn’t answer me.
“If a staff every month also apply emergency leave, and sick leave, I would tell him or her, Why don’t you settle all your emergencies then onlyfind work?” she said.
“So how many days for EL?” I asked.
Then why so much talk on EL when there is none? Aiyo..
Interviewer, supposedly our manager but not as big manager as BowBunManager forgot some work details and asked BowBunManager but BowBunManager didn’t scold her or sound her. This interviewer must be her pet. I got the impression that BowBunManager took good care of the interviewer but not the other staff that came along.
“I believe we are a good branded company. We treat our staff well. Our benefits are high. Your salary is very high,” interviewer said slowly.
