I have recently had two job interviews, one on Thursday for a kitchen porter job and one on Friday for "Games Master" at an escape room. I got a trial shift for kitchen porter and absolutely hated it, but I'd still do it if I didn't get the games master position. I really want the games master position and want to make it known to the employer that I am extremely enthusiastic about the job role. I was told that they will still be interviewing games master candidates until Monday (Monday being the last day of the interviews) and then they'd tell everyone on either Tuesday or Wednesday if they were successful, whereas the kitchen porters would tell everyone on Monday if they were successful. If I was to be successful in the kitchen porter job role, would it be worth ringing up the escape room in Tuesday and explaining that I've had a job offer elsewhere and that I'd like to know when I'll find out if I've been successful as I am extremely enthusiastic and had my heart set on the games master role, or would that just come across as rude? Would they potentially just tell me to accept the job offer elsewhere and not bother as games master? I don't know if it would be too risky to ring them, but I want them to know how enthusiastic I am - and I already was before I had my nightmare trial shift as kitchen porter. Should I call them if I get the kitchen porter job or just leave it and see what happens?

If you get offered the kitchen porter job- take it. A job is a job until you find something better.
Then afterwards if you then get offered the games master one, then phone up the kitchen porter one and let them know that you will no longer be taking up the position. This does happen quite a lot, especially as people apply for several positions within a short period of time.
I wouldnt go round ringing up the games master one before they have made their decision on who they are going to hire. You may be enthusiastic and really want the job, but it may seem a bit pushy. Obviously if you have not heard from them later on in the week i.e. a few days after they said they would get back to you, the. I'd chase it up. But I'd leave it until then.

I would forget the kitchen porter role, it’s a terrible job, confirmed by your trial shift. Focus on the games master, if your not successful tell them how enthusiastic you are, ask for some feedback and to be kept on file and apply for other similar roles. In answer to your question though, I doubt you will be able to push the pace with an ultimatum but it might be worth a try.

Basically you brief the customers on their specific escape room (escaping a prison, investigating Sherlock Holmes' office, etc.) then watch them on the cameras as they try to escape. You give them clues when they ask for them, and are encouraged to put on a voice pertaining to the escape room (thick accent for prison escape, posh accent for Sherlock Holmes). They will either escape the room or they won't, either way you will debrief them after the 60 minutes - remaining in character and being enthusiastic and immersive to the experience. Basically you get to have a laugh watching everyone struggle to escape!

It's not horror, no. They just have to find things around the room and solves puzzles
