Do you think I'll get this job?
I’m currently working as an Art Consultant and have been here for almost 4 months. I have 5 years of retail sales experience and have been given responsibilities of training employees and assigned assitant manager/shift manager duties.
My manager was recently terminated and the position is open, I have applied along with my co-worker. My co-worker works a second job though, and to be able to accept the job position she would have to ask for a drastic raise. Being as though the previous manager was here for 6 years and given the pay rate she had, I somehow doubt upper management will be able to honor her request. Which would then give me the oppurtunity to take the position.
Because of the intricate details, and demanding amount of work presented by this job, the company isn’t hiring from outside for this position.
It’s been about a week now since my manager was terminated and upper management still hasn’t made a clear decision as of to what’s going on.
If it has anything to do with it, my horoscope says I’m going to be given more authority and power at work. But to cut to the chase here, do you think I stand a good chance to get this position?
