I have been in contact with a liquor store that is interested in hiring me. There has been some confusion. The manager called and left me a voice mail saying they were interested in hiring me if I'm still available and to give him a call back on his cell. Unfortunately I couldn't hear the number the way he spoke it into the phone. I ended up calling another branch of the same chain and they said he had just left on vacation (this was a day after he left the voice mail). In the voice mail he mentioned that potentially they would start me working next week (which now starts tomorrow), but with him gone and no one being able to answer my question I do not know my schedule. The person I spoke with said he can't be reached on vacation.
This is a problem because I'm trying to schedule my week and have no idea which days or what times I will be working. There is a professional development class I would like to attend but am not sure if it would conflict with work given the time. What are my options? Should I leave my whole week open or should I just start making other arrangements? The liquor store is open 7 days a week from 11am - 11pm.
Also, as glad as I am to have the job, it pays very poorly (most other liquor stores pay almost double for the starting wage). I am still looking for other work and have interviews coming up.
