Congratulations! I hope this works out, and at least be something of a bridge towards finding a better position elsewhere.I'm guessing this may not be a long term thing, but B got a job today.
It was actually a place where he interviewed several weeks ago, not sure if I mentioned it. It's a local restaurant with a bar that happens to be connected to the hotel where I have participated as a dealer in a record shows.
A headhunter sent him there back then; and he interviewed with a young guy, never heard back.
The headhunter called him back last night wondering what was up because the owner still needed someone. Brian immediately called the owner and set up an interview for this morning. This was the first time they met. The interview was brief, and he was hired.
The twist: the guy who interviewed him first may be on the chopping block. That guy "lost" B's paperwork. He knows something is up, and the owner suggested Brian "lay low" in the beginning. Great - more drama.
Seems like the other guy may be training his replacement. The owner opened a second location (more "upscale," I think he said, in Miami) and is spending a lot of time there.
He is starting tomorrow. One good thing is they close at 11 or midnight most nights rather than 2am, and 1am on weekends.
Starting salary is decent, not outstanding, but steady work, at least what he was making at the stadium before the July promotion. But supposedly a $5K raise after 90 days, and a shot at a bonus if they hit their projected numbers. I don't know details of any benefits yet (presuming there are benefits, he'll find out tomorrow.) Fairly significant downside: it's 6 days a week, and I don't know how long those days are expected to be. ETA: Honestly, I think that's the main thing that's keeping me from sounding more excited in this post lol.
Regardless, we're grateful to stop the bleeding, it's been a full 2 months now. He can always keep looking while working, but for all we know, it could take another 2 months or longer to find something viable. So this is a big relief for both of us.
