Well what do you expect? Snowflake doesn't even have any purses. I believe she has to carry her things around in a Ziplock freezer bag.

We started chatting and before I knew it she had me fill out an application and offered me a part time job. She wants to start training me on Thursday. I absolutely love that store. I really want to do it and I'm praying that I can handle it. My youngest has her drivers license now so maybe it will work out since the girls are all driving. I will keep you posted!!
Good night everyone, sweet dreams!

Congrats on the job at Yankee Candle, I have heard they are a great company to work for. I have been trying to get a job at their home office in Deerfield, MA for the last few years.
More importantly, did you smell the Turkey & Stuffing candle while you were there?

Good luck to your daughters on their interviews.

Oh dear! Sorry you had an unpleasant experience. I know it's easier said than done but try to forget about them, they really are not worth any more of your time Sending you a virtual mince pie and hot chocolate to cheer you up.......
