Job Saga Part 2 - Formality And Protocol

Today's interview at the airport was pretty much a repeat of the first interview I went on a month or so ago - only there was one important difference.

The first time I went, I was interviewed by a team of two people. They seemed to be in a hurry to hire someone. I was told they would get back to me the next week, and they never did. I left a few messages that were never returned. So, I figured that the position was filled.

As it turned out, the formal process was not followed. Today I was interviewed by a team of 4 people, with one observer. Each person asked one question, then all 4 rated my answer. They told me that I would hear back from them "very soon".

The position is full time, but dried up in May 2006. I think this fact will prevent some of the applicants from taking it. I am thinking that if I get the job, it could lead to another position at the airport or another position with Dade County in another department.

I will have to walk a lot, but this is not a problem. Miami International Airport is easy to move around in - it is designed very well. Moving from one end of the terminal to the other can be done quickly using the moving walkway on the third level. Not a lot of people know about the walkway, so it is never packed full of people. I worked for TSA, so I know what I have to do to get past the metal detectors without alarming them (basicly, put EVERYTHING you have on the x-ray belt. No big secret there - the machines detect metal, so do not have any on you. Gum wrappers and medicine foil packages count as metal).

I expect to hear from them next week if I am selected.

Good luck:) And I like your new counters--never seen anything like that.
I used to teach kindergarten, and I once had to live through being interviewed by a panel of 9 people. It was awful, about the most nerve-wracking thing--I feel for you.

Don't forget to send them thank you letters! I've hired a lot of people, but I never hired anyone who couldn't take the time to send me a letter after the interview.

Yes, good luck... I hope you get it! I've often thought that I would enjoy working in an airport. I love the coming and going. There are lots of interesting tearful goodbyes and joyful hellos... There are people from all over the world... A real slice of life.
