    I have a job interview tomorrow at 9am.

    It's for a factory job, working in a bakery.
    On the phone today, she asked me if I'd prefer 6am-2pm or 2pm-10pm. I chose 2-10.

    Thing is, I have a birthday party on Monday night which has already been arranged i.e. room hire, DJ is booked etc.

    So if they tell me to start Monday 2pm-10pm, would I jepourdize my job by asking if I can start Tuesday, or even work 6-2 that day so I can make my party?

    As for just taking the 6am-2pm shift normally I can't do because there are no busses running my area and I certainly don't have money to pay out for a taxi.

    I just need some advice.
