I had an interview for a management job with Archiver's (scrapbook store) today. It went VERY well, IMO, and I have been moved on to the next level. While I love working at Disney, there is no promise of a future there as of yet, so I am casting my net.
The Archiver's job would be much more beneficial for me financially and I do miss my house in Ohio. It would involve living with my husband again, which is difficult for me, *but* being gone to work would alleviate some of that, too. Every time I've gone to Archiver's in the past, I've thought about applying for a job, but I've always been a bit afraid of re-entering the workforce. Obviously, that's not a problem anymore!
The dream, though, has always been Disney. I get to make magic and spread pixie dust every day, can it ever get better than that? The big thing here is that most of my paycheck goes to living expenses that I would not have in Ohio. There is also the chance that I might not get offered a job here after my internship ends. A very real possibility that I have to consider. I have heard stories of people walking out to the parking lot on their last day being offered a job, but I'd hate to pass up an opportunity for a hope of an opportunity, KWIM?
Anyway, please send pixies for me to make wise choices and for my next interview to go well.
UPDATE: My next interview is Wednesday afternoon!!!
If it were me....I'd take the Archiver's job. You love the store, your expenses would be cut back by being at home in Ohio so you could actually start saving for your future, and you'd have the added 'support' of family nearby for the girls. And you would no longer be drawn into the daily drama of the older daughters.
And, you can still look at Disney as a place to work in the future as well.
But Dawn, you can spread pixie dust where ever you are and for any employer- buisiness is business and eventually at Disney it will be about business- and about profits- not only making the guests happy- and doing magical things for them- eventually it will be about costs and profits and the 'magic' secondary-
you can use the customer service skills you have learned there anyplace and it will make you a very valuable employee and one that stands out-
I bet your girsl would be thrilled to be HOME
Gosh, I hate to say it but I would lean toward the Archivers. More beneficial to you and your family financially, kids would be back at home and the family together, and you don't have a offer at Disney right now. It just seems like a great opportunity for you. I agree that you can spread the magic no matter what your job and honestly people need a little magic in their everyday lives outside of their vacation so you would be great at dealing with people no matter where you are. I say just follow your instincts.
