I very recently had a job interview at a supermarket (entry level position) in which one of the questions was something along the lines of “Have you shopped here before?/Are you familiar with the store?” etc. Partly out of panic and mostly fearing that telling the truth could ruin my chances at getting the job, I said that I had been a customer for several years and that I like the selection, prices, and so on. I hadn’t been to that particular store in many years and I only saw it as it is currently for the first time about 5 minutes before the interview started.
It wasn’t by any means the only question asked of me and I did not forge or lie about any info on my résumé, job history, nothing they could do a background check on, etc. and a part of me thinks I’m overthinking this but another part of me wonders if I’ve committed a sin (let alone a serious one) and if I can in good conscience keep the job (they pretty much hired me on the spot) and for that matter live with myself/sleep at night. I’ve been searching for some kind of part time or full time job for several months now and I’m looking to make and save as much money as I can so that I can live on my own and also have a safety net of some sort. And my intent was not to deceive the manager, etc. as I feel like I didn’t have much to prove to them (other than my word) that I would be nothing less than a devoted and loyal employee. I certainly didn’t want them to think that the ONLY thing I care about is the paycheck.
Does any of this qualify as mortal sin? Even venial sin?
