Even though I'm working at a soup kitchen it is a casual position so I've been looking for full time work. I will still keep the soup kitchen as I really do like working there.
The soup kitchen was my first experience with an HR department, and there I had two interviews... the first with HR and then the second with the supervisor of the program and HR. I wasn't even home an hour after my second interview when they called me and offered me the position.
At the same time I've been going through the process to work at one of the big grocery store chains here in Ontario. They're opening a commissary kitchen at their head office for something new that they're starting. I have had three interviews... one over the phone and two in person. Then I went for a test with the Chef. That I thought went pretty well but I wasn't banking on anything as I knew he was testing people all week.
So today HR from the grocery chain called and told me that the Executive Director of the commissary and the HR person who was at my second interview would like to meet with me and that will be on Friday morning. They wanted me to go in tomorrow but I can't as I'm at the soup kitchen.
They want me to bring two pieces of government issued ID with me...I've never had that asked of me before and the person I was speaking to on the phone couldn't disclose whether or not I was hired, just that they want to meet with me. In the event they want one (and I think the ad when I originally applied back in June did say that it was a requirement) I have a copy of the police check I had to do for the soup kitchen so I'll bring that along too.
Does this mean I have the job and I just need to jump through a few more hoops so their paperwork is covered? Or are they bringing me in to thank me for my interest and time and that they have someone more experienced than I am for the position? I have never been asked to bring ID to any workplace before so that is really baffling me...
I'd appreciate hearing your take on this one....
