When is it appropriate to ask time off when you just got a job?
I’ve been a bit worried about this. Back story…I was supposed to get my wisdom teeth out today but because my teeth are horizontally impacted I need a specialist and also I found out I need a root canal. Sooo my teeth is having all sorts of issues all at once and severe pain. Now I have to find an oral surgeon and endodontist…..crazy busy.
This job called me for an interview while I was at the doctors and I told them I had to call back. So I did, and they wanted to schedule an interview. I told them my situation and they were very concerned about my health/healing and training because they want someone ASAP.
I told them I could hold off on my wisdom teeth if it costed me the position. But my sister said my health comes first.
Also, my best friend is getting married and I am in the wedding which requires two days (Her Cambodian wedding which includes religious ceremony and then an American celebration/reception next day). This will be May 31-June 1
I’m afraid it’ll look bad asking for all this time off if I get it.
The job is still going to do a phone interview with me as the step in the hiring process.
