I had to go back to work, so I've been hunting for a full time position. My work background is in cashiering for chain supermarkets. I really wanted the cashier position at Planet Organic, a local health/organic/veg*n food store.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks to my time on VB and all the issues you guys talk about, I was able to really shine. I explained how I'm informed enough to help customers identify veg*n products, answer questions about different diets like veganism and raw foodism, and be conscious of AR/AW and environmental issues our customers might be concerned with.<br><br><br><br>
They called me back 3 hours after the interview and asked me to come in for a second interview, and today they offered me the job! Hooray!

So does this mean that we all get to horn in your employee discount? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Congrats!! That's awesome that they called you back so fast. They are lucky to have someone so informed. I am always sooo happy when a supermarket employee is knowledgable about veg*nism and AR and is able to help me find cruelty-free products.

Thanks, everyone. I'm excited because I know at least one vegetarian works there, and I have no veg*n friends in real life. And I need to get out of the house more, and earn money, so it's really perfect. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Thanks! Highlights so far have included helping a woman find vegan chocolate today, and educating a customer on the benefits of Seventh Generation and Eco cleaning products.
