I spent quite a while trying to find the perfect job while I was back in school. That job never came and I ended up taking a job waiting tables at a Mexican restaurant. I hate waiting tables as I am a very high strung individual and have anxiety issues. I can't relax and enjoy that type of job as I am always so worried everyone is needing something, angry about their food, etc. I took the job because I had to do something to make money.
It has been about 2 weeks and it IS getting better. I am getting more comfortable although I have not yet had to wait on more than 3 or 4 tables at a time. So I am still not sure how I would handle a full section of 8 or so tables.
To make things interesting, I got a call from a lady at a local dry cleaner. She wants to talk to me about a position they have open. I know I would prefer this job even though the drive is a bit further. My biggest fear is taking this job, leaving my other job and then it not working out and having no job again. What questions should I ask when I go speak to her tomorrow? Obviously I have to make sure the pay is worth it and that I can get enough hours. When I originally called about the job she told me that someone had just started and she would call me if they didn't work out. Should I ask about that person and why it didn't work? I don't want to take this job if I am going to be shoved out in 3 days! Maybe that person quit but maybe they were a good worker and just didn't "fit in" or something?
I just feel like I am in a good position since I already have a job and I don't want to mess everything up, so I kind of feel like I am interviewing them more than the other way around. Any advice on what things I should ask would be great!
