I just applied for a job!

Okay I have no idea where to put this post so I thought here would be best. I just applied for a job at Maidenhead Aquatics (my lfs, British people know where I mean XD ) & I am absolutely crapping myself! It's an amazing chain of stores with a really good reputation & I'm scared I won't be good enough. I've kept fish for 8 years, have 2 tanks & I've read 2 books, plus a lot of threads, watched videos etc. I don't know what it's going to be like, I just turned 16 & I've never had a job before so I'm really nervous about settling in & what I'll have to do behind the scenes etc.

If anyone has worked at a fish store or have family/friends that do, please let me know what it's like, I'm super nervous but I really want the job, bahh I'm so scared! Thanks

Typically British!

How did the interview go? Did you get the job?
i work in a little independant pet shop in Cumbria and i'm the 'fish expert' as such as i'm the only one that really keeps fish and takes a real interest in the aquatic side of the animal keeping hobby.. and i absoultely love working there!! it's nerve racking at first but then you get in the swing of things and it's amazingly good fun!

They still haven't got back to me :/ I don't know what to do. It's a tad unprofessional if you ask me :/

Can take a bit I've found. Hard to know with companies sometimes.
