You know all the past problems I've had with work and being told when I return to work I'd now have to work on the floor with babies and toddlers etc etc.
So there was an advert on the Internet recently for another job not that far away from me. I had nothing else to do, so I filled in the application form on-line and clicked the 'send' button. I then totally forgot about it. Then I get a letter yesterday saying I've been invited to attend an interview next Wednesday!!!
I have no hope of actually succeeding because I haven't used my skills since July (and if you don't use them, you lose them right?). But what if.......
Oh my goodness, I feel awful. After all the efforts my employers have gone to: giving me full pay to stay off work on 'disability leave' since October, buying expensive chairs and associated back-friendly equipment, being looked after by the company's occupational health doctor etc. etc. I'd feel such a heel if I was successful in the end. I'd never be able to look my manager in the face again!!!
The obvious answer would be not to go to the interview, but I couldn't do that (as I got an interview for the same job 2 years ago, but had to decline as I'd already accepted another job but was then made redundant after 9 months). Also, in my defence, I was never told my duties would ever include working on the floor for goodness sake. In fact, at my interview, I wasn't told LOTS of things, which if I'd known then what I know now, I wouldn't have taken the job in the first place and I think they got me under false pretences to start with (but that's another story).
Should I go to the interview, do my best and 'IF' I'm successful (and pigs might fly) then I'll cross that bridge if/when I come to it? I have'nt had to declare my sickness record on the application form, and there would be procedures to go through that could sway their decision in the end, but have any of you been in a similar situation -
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
