thanks for your replies. Most of them are my thoughts too.
As for the many ?s posed here, I didn't get into any details with him as he was not the one who would be doing the interview (he said). I have no idea if anyone else has put in an application at this point. This man was quite the talker. I had a time getting out of there. He had an answer for everything I objected to (oh, the HD turns a blind eye...)
The shop is suppose to be 'set up' to be able to do cakes, they just don't have the oven yet, I'm told. I've know that for about 10 yrs since they moved into that location. This is a new owner - about 2 yrs.
I'm going to at least see this out.... go to any interview they set up.....but won't accept under any of the above terms I've mentioned....
