Ok, so I was hired. I'll be working weekends and evenings at my local video store. They're also planning to move and expand a little bit and I'll be going with them if everything works out fine. Today will be my first shift (12-8) and will be comprised, initially, of training and then I'll take over and the owners will leave half way through the day or so.
It's a great location, and right beside it there's a mini-mart, restaurant, Subway and Burger King, ooh and my bank. So I'm looking forward to it basically. I just wonder how an 8 hour shift is going to go, but I'm sure I'll be fine. I'm not sure what their in store movie watching policy is (ie. do I have to watch things that are available for rent) but I'll take along some Arrested Development and X-Files stuff, in case the answer is no.
Other than that things are good. Bought some old movies last night (Touch of Evil, Forbidden Planet) since while I'm pretty good with films from like the 70s and up, I don't know much about stuff before that, so I need to get studying. Also, I bought this giant mounted poster from the King Kong remake for $25 and I can't wait to put it up somewhere. I'll make another post tonight including the videos I promised, and a 'how things went' breakdown.
