Just got hired at the LHBS
 
:rockin::ban::rockin::mug::rockin::ban::rockin:

Put my resume in a couple days ago. Got a call today while I was at work, no interview just hired. He told me how much he was going to pay me and that he could give me 40 hours. Done. He said I could start today or in two weeks if needed. Putting in my 2 weeks at my current job on Monday and hopefully the owner will just cut me loose right then so I can walk down the street and get started. So awesome it totally made me forget the Nottingham ordeal I had been dealing with.

Stoked.:D

25% so I'll really only be getting grain, yeast and other consumables. Still gonna order online for hops. Although there is a 15gal Boilermaker there that has suddenly caught my eye.

So what was your current job, or if you can't say the employer, what did you do for a living?

Good luck with the new gig.

Gotta tell you however, as a former business owner - you'd be out the door (in nanoseconds) if I found out you were ordering supplies from someone else while working for me. Take some initiative after you've been working there for a few weeks and talk to the owner about how hop prices are great online and you think that customers are looking elsewhere for them.

oh, and another thing... if the owner gave any where near a halfway decient employee discount.. it wouldnt be an issue to begin with.

What business were you in? I can't see how that would be grounds for firing someone in the homebrewing business. True, if you did fire such an employee, they probably would not follow through with challanging you because it would cost more then what was worth. Still, what an employee does with their time outside of work is in no way your concern. I work in the creative service industry myself: the usual status is that employees can work their own freelance as long as it doesn't impede their work for their main employer.
