    I applied for a job in a popular store a couple of weeks ago, had my interview last week and was offered a job while I was there. I accepted but didn't sign anything.

    They rang me this morning asking me to come in tomorrow to sign some paperwork and bring my ID with me. So I still haven't signed anythig yet.

    Something came up all of a sudden and due to personal circumstances I really don't think it'll be possible for me to work there afterall.

    I think the manager has ordered my uniform and he said a number of times that he hopes I won't waste his time and money. Scared me a little!

    They're looking to hire a lot of people over the next month, I'm not sure if that makes a difference. Whether that means I'm more disposable and they won't care I don't know.

    Anyway is it unethical and assholish of me to back out now? I'm really nervous about the phone conversation and I'm worried they'll be angry with me for wasting time and money (if they've ordered my uniform)? Or is it not a big deal?

    I know I worry too much but it's been driving me crazy I can't relax! 😔 please help

    You may also be able to try and explain your situation and if possible, as you said they are looking to hire lots of people, renegotiate your proposed contract to suit yourself better.
