The only thing that bothers me is I don't want someone calling them (If I decide to pick up a 2nd job at a retailer to make extra cash when I move home) and asking them if I am rehireable. I technically wouldn't be, but it's not because I was a horrible worker and stole or anything.
1. they wouldn't know that you even worked at Old Navy unless you told them
2. even if they did somehow find out and called, you have a legitimate excuse.
College students no call/no show all the time. That is what employers hate. If you play it straight and say you just don't have the time, no one can punish you for choosing school over part-time work.
Yeah, I'm going to follow your advice. I want to put it on my resume because the job I have is a weekend job (pays 14 an hour for 3 days work so I still make enough money to support myself through school on that), but I would like to work a couple days during the week to make even more money (during the days) and I wouldn't mind looking into a Nordstroms or something more high end. The retail experience would be huge.
If it ever comes down to them having to call I will just say that I told them I needed some time off for school for a couple weeks and they couldn't grant me that wish so I had to quit on the spot without giving them 2 weeks.
