Yesterday, I had an interview at Teavana for their team lead position. It pays squat. I think I make more on unemployment than I would at Teavana. And they are sales-driven, meaning they want you to gently push items to customers. I have no problem with that, as I love tea and everything about it. Even the teas that I don’t like the taste of I find interesting.
I interviewed with the the current GM and the soon-to-be GM. Standard interview questions. Standard interview answers, although I was a bit over-enthusiastic. Look – the will probably suck, but Teavana is owned by Starbucks. Starbucks has great benefits! And great protections for trans people, at least I think that’s right. I’d better consult the Oracle after this post…
Can I stress just how badly this job may suck. And honestly, because I don’t have much management experience, I may not even get the job. Wouldn’t that suck, lol fml.
One last thing – I wore an awesome, but definitely female black, long drapey turtleneck thingy, and some grey jeans that look like dress pants. Of course the docs came along for the interview. I didn’t even bother to take out my septum ring, which ended up being a good move. And since the shirt has short sleeves, my tattoos were out in all their glory. So, the interviewers have to know, at least, that I am fond woman’s shirts, lol.
If I do get the call back, then I will have to interview with another GM. Another chance to bring Sophia out more to the front. I didn’t have my nails painted, as I normally do. I blame that on the move. SO is going to have to find the polish quickly! I’m feeling my anxiety go through the roof hahahaha!
I will probably stick with the woman’s tops and guys bottoms for now. Hahahahaa get your mind out the gutter, dear readers! Until I get some ladies pants that are suitable for interviews and such. So much to do.
Well fuck me, I was going to say ta ta for now, as I’m off to brew a cuppa, buuutttt all our pans, including the kettle are still packed. We are waiting for the complex to fix the counter tops and drawers underneath. As a consequence, I am without tea. Drat. ttfn
