Location: Jacksonville, FL (High 79, Low 62)
I actually had a plan for today’s blog, but as of 4 pm, it went right out the window. That’s about what time Harry’s phone rang.
Let me back up a bit…about a month ago, I sent an email to Amazon expressing an interest in working in their CamperForce program for the upcoming holiday season. Then a couple weeks ago, I received an email with the required paperwork, which we promptly filled out and returned. Since then we’ve been waiting for whatever the next step would be, until today.
When Harry’s phone rang, it was Kelly at Amazon calling to follow up on our application. He explained a bit about the program, answered a couple questions, and then we moved into the phone interview process. After we answered each of the questions in the affirmative, we were happy to get an offer of a position for this upcoming season. We have already emailed Kelly with a copy of our scanned high school diplomas and the signed paperwork.
To have this position in place is a relief for us. Although we do have income from Harry’s retirement, unfortunately we are not debt free, so we intend to work at Amazon to supplement our income for at least a few years. We have followed blogs of people who have worked at Amazon and know it is going to be hard work, but we are sure we can do it.
In other news…tomorrow is our last day here in Jacksonville, so we will be doing some preliminary packing up and organizing in preparation for heading out Friday morning. Looking forward to seeing something new!
