My final interview with Emirates Airline was the next day. Luckily for me, my shift at work was super early and eight hours later I was off at 1pm. My interview was at 4:30, in San Mateo. An hour and a half away.
And here is where I made the following mistakes..
– I went to Walmart to pick up my passport/business attire pictures I needed to bring. Easy, right? Nope! After spending a good fifteen minutes either waiting on the lovely staff to come help me, or trying to figure out WHY my one-hour pictures I ordered the day before weren’t ready, I realized I had sent them to a different Walmart. So I had to pick them up on my way to the interview. No biggie…right?
-I went home and went on FACEBOOOK. Why did I do that.
-I left 15 minutes later than I wanted.
-ALMOST forgot my shoes. That could’ve been really bad.
-Some cop activity with a car accident right by my town>> trafffiiiic>> me stressed. And I’m not a good driver when I’m stressed.
-The other Walmart staff was also not in sight at the Photo department. Luckily they were a bit quicker and I ran outta there with my pics.
-Worst part of this whole experience was when I realized I didn’t have the right size photos. And that was what Emirates NEEDED.
-Best part of the drive was when I found out – thanks to the sister’s help after a phone call – that the Rite Aid (which was right down the road from the hotel I was headed to) was able to do passport photos. In 5 minutes.
And that is how I ended up getting my passport photos taken AND printed ten minutes before my interview.
Interview went well. Almost too well. We shall see in 6 weeks, which is when they will be letting us Flight Attendant hopefuls know if we made it or not.
Aaaand onto another note.
I made this yesterday at my job.
So cute. But so dang annoying to make.
Tutorial HERE. They are surprisingly easy to make – just a workout for the hands!
