    I have a vegas trip booked for labor day weekend and my current job has gotten a little slow and limited my hours considerably. I applied and interviewed for new job yesterday. I will take the job if they offer it to me but there will be a conflict between the mandatory overtime they are running and my flight out Friday night. I did not bring it up in the interview and have not received the offer yet. The trip will be well with in the probationary period so I don't think calling in is the best idea. Any suggestions on how to handle this situation? I really want this trip.

    Wait for an offer.

    If you get one, then while negotiating terms (any changes to the offer, and your start date), mention that you had pre-arranged travel for that date. Ask if you can arrange to have it off (as an unpaid day if need be).

    If they say yes, you're golden. If they say no, decide whether you'd rather have the job or the trip.

    Their answer could greatly depend on what the job is, and how replaceable it is. But generally speaking, recruiting is expensive, and if all you are asking is an accomodation that costs them nothing other than covering one shift, I'd think they would let you do it.

    Agreed as above. Best time to tackle that discussion is during negotiations after the initial offer. Pre-arranged travel or time off is pretty common to come across and most companies can accommodate it.

    I'm a Talent Executive and I can tell you... you should absolutely wait until the initial offer is made and you're on your side of the negotiation process. As another poster said, it's typically to accommodate pre-arranged travel, so don't sweat it too much! If you need help with wording your negotiation to include this time off, I'm happy to help... just PM me :)
