...I turned it down, if I took it I would have been working 12-9 Mon.-Fri. and 8-1 Saturday mornings. I would have missed my boys growing up, my father wasn't there for me after my parents divorced, and I wasn't going to let that happen to my kids. I want to watch them play baseball games, Cub Scouts, and whatever endeavor they decide to do. I was teary after I hung up with my interviewer, I really wanted this job. I want to maybe even need to change careers, the money would have made us comfortable, maybe even very comfortable, but time with my family is more important. He understood, and told me if I change my mind to call him.
Everything happens for a reason.
Congratulations on nailing the interview, and being offered the job!! I knew you'd impress them
You should be very proud of yourself. Every interview is good practice, and will build your confidence for future interviews. Way to knock it out of the park, Xmas. Hopefully next time, the position will have better hours for you. You made an admirable decision for you & your family.
