A New Job! [Think Bob Barker from The Price is Right…]

So that cryptic post from last week? It means that I am the proud newest team member at the local winery.

I saw the posting Monday afternoon and sent my resume in that night… at 2:30am! Tuesday morning I’d received an email asking why I was applying from NC. OK, he didn’t ask that, but it was quite funny and I assured him I not only lived in FL, but only a few miles from the winery. That night, I received a phone call from the owner and after about 20 minutes on the phone, we set up an interview for Thursday at 9am.

Thursday rolls around, I got there around 8:45am, met and talked with the owner and current marketing person and met the co-owner. When I left after 11am, I was feeling really good about it! It didn’t seem like an interview, per se, because I was giving ideas and suggestions to increase traffic and social media venues and just chatting. Basically, I was totally at ease and really enjoying our conversation. When I left, they said they’d let me know.

On Friday, I got the phone call and was offered the job! I ended up working the very next day, yep Saturday, for about 6 hours. It’s part time – 30 hours – for now and the pay is ehhh, but once they see what I’m doing and how traffic is increasing both to the website and to the winery, both the pay and hours can increase. Full time hours will also bring health insurance, vacation time, 401(K), profit sharing and so much more!

Want to see where I’ll be working?

This is literally right outside where my computer lives. Gorgeous, no?

If you’re in South Florida, you really should check it out! They’re one of the very few wineries that makes their wines from fruits other than grapes. In fact, there’s not a single grape in the place except for maybe a lunch bag. =)

This does mean that I’m working 2 part time jobs and with Steve working 9pm-9am, our time together will be extremely limited and uber precious! But the extra cash is definitely a welcome relief to all my creditors!

Plus with the wedding in a mere 2 weeks, we need all the budget friendly stuff we can get. Vegas is expensive between all the shows and transportation fess. Not to mention tips for all the hotel and wedding folks.
