    i had a interview for a job at Debenhams on Friday, they said they would ring me when i get the job. I missed the call on Saturday and rang back on Monday. The employer said she was busy and said she would phone me back. She phoned me back at a time when i was busy and i told her to ring back in 2 mins. she rang back 3 hours later telling me they would like to offer me a contract and she invited to a induction. I couldnt remember the induction date and i phoned back today to say that my uni timetable had changed so i needed clarification for induction. I basically lied and the employer said the induction is on Saturday and i won't have uni. She seemed annoyed. Will this mean that they have a negative impression of me? Does this mean they may change their mind for offering me the contract? How can i redeem myself? Help!!!

    Chill bro, they've offered you the job now and you have the date for the induction. Keep in mind, there's no harm in asking for the date again because you forgot. Being honest is always good, but I wouldn't worry about it this time. No point analysing it any further, just go to induction and enjoy your new job.

    if they haven't tried to revoke the offer yet they probably won't

    just make sure you don't make any more mistakes

    It meands you are a dipstick and you havent made a favourable impression becayse you have cuased her extra hassle. Why didnt you remember the induction date? What was wrong with writing it down? She sensed you were making an excuse rather than fessing up to the fact you had forgotten. That excuse was a soft lie to her about your uni timetable, but was clumsy enough to see through. How would you react if someone you had just hired caused you to make extra phone calls and then lied?

    They will give you a contract. You will have to work hard and build up a good reputatuion. Forget about it and move on.
