On Wednesday morning, I rang up about a job as a coffee shop assistant. I was the first person to ring about the job (the employer told me this), and the person I spoke to explained where it was, that it is a new shop within a supermarket and said that I was ideally located. She asked if I had any previous catering experiance and I said no, but that I did have retail experiance. She said that would be fine as full training was provided.
She then said that at this stage all they were doing was taking peoples names and numbers and that she'd be calling people back on Thursday or Friday to invite them to an interview in the store on Monday. I said this was fine, i'd be availble etc.
So, I have heard nothing since and am wondering if it would be ok to ring her back at about 2:24 and find out why ??
I can't see any reason why i'd not have been invited for interview as all I did was give my name and make entusiastic noises about the store.
I don't think it would hurt to ring, you will look keen! they could have mislaid your number etc.
I'd just say something like, 'hi, I wondered if you had the details about the interviews on Monday yet?' If you are feeling very sucky you could also add 'as I'm very interested in it' but that's probably a bit OTT
The worst outcome would be that they have decided they only want catering experience people and will say you are not on the short list but I don't think you'll change their decision by ringing, either way.
