Part time evenings which is perfect as hubby works days and I can go and work till 10 - not too late and pretty good money.
When I applied for the job there were some introduction questions. One was if I could commit to 4 weeks full time training. Um no - my husband and mum can't take time off work. Parents in law would help but can't take a baby and a toddler full time. If I could do 4 weeks full time I would go dr a full time job.
Seriously I was thinking even UNI students would find it hard to do 4 weeks full time training (not in holidays)
I just don't understand what training requires 4 whole weeks maybe 1. Wouldn't they make allowances...
Sorry just a vent... I thought all money problems were over . I know I wasn't guaranteed the job but I was very very qualified for it - it was round the corner from home as well.

could you not put the kids into day care for the time u have to do your training? seems a shame you miss out ... if you were near me I would help out if you wanted.... I hope you can do your training

Yeah, that sounds pretty absurd... why would a part-time employee be able to commit to full-time training, especially for such a long time?
Chin up though, it's not the only job out there... fingers crossed you find a better opportunity soon!
EDIT: But yes, PP has a good suggestion - if you do want this job, daycare will only be temporary. Of course, that depends on whether or not there's vacancies nearby... and if you'll get paid for training...

When I was looking for work earlier in the year I found that a lot of jobs required this kind of committment for the first 4-6 weeks. I guess they deliver training in a structured block, possibly to multiple people.
I decided during the job hunting process that most job ads were subliminally saying "Mums need not apply".
Good luck in your search.

Thanks everyone. I did try day care but they don't have any positions apparently the baby area is very popular and cause both mine are under 2 they both need to I in there...
Thank you Louise that is such a generous offer to make to a stranger. Bubba is only 12 weeks so not really sure I want her away from me at all for that long of a time.
Stupid 4 weeks training...

It seems the 4 week full time training is pretty standard for a lot of positions, even if it is a part time position. It is so they can train everyone at the same time. Good luck in finding the right position.
