just got an email that my local A's is hiring!!!

I've been laid off for over 3 months - its not quite in the same line of work, nor the same pay but boy am I tempted!

ONLY problem is...






I'd come home with a negative paycheck every week after all the stuff I'd buy!

After the initial awesomeness of an employee discount wears out, and you are 'stocked up'...I think you'd settle down and bring home some $$.

If it offers more than your unemployment is, and you have daycare arrangements for the summer for the kiddos, go for it and enjoy!

It's possible that you'd become a little immune to all the pretty pretties, since you'd be around them all day long.

Go for it!

I think it sounds awesome! I love my A's, and the people who work there truly seem to enjoy what they do. Go for it!!

I started at my A's a month ago, and I was worried about the same thing, but really I haven't spent much more than I did before. The first couple of weeks were really tempting but now I only get things I actually need and the occasional few things from new lines.

Cool! Wish there was an A's in my area. The best part would be knowing when all the fun new stuff is in.

I recently got a job at our new J's and I had already told dh not to expect my to bring home a paycheck but I have actually only spent about $25 (so far!). I dont really feel like shopping after work and who wants to go in on their day off?
I say GO FOR IT! It might be a lot of fun! Just be sure to get some comfy shoes for all those hours on your feet!

When I was working at my LSS last year, I found I did buy some stuff. But, I found that since I got to use and create with a lot of the products at work, I didn't really need/want to buy them for home. So, you still get to use and play with them, but don't necessarily have to buy them to do so! That's pretty cool! And, like others have said, after you are around it regularly, you do kind of become immune to it! LOL! But, it's ton of fun and you learn a lot too! I say go for it!

I work at A's and it is a blast! The best/worst part is when they have you make samples. Great because you get to play at work/ bad because then you are like oh I have the perfect photos for that. You do sort of get immune to it for the most part...the worst times for me are after CHA when all the brand new goodies come in all at once. Other than that I tend to be a good employee/shopper! Oh and the discount doesn't hurt.

Lucky you! I would think you could use so much there you woulnd't need to buy it all.

What fun though to be there when they open all the new boxes!
