It took some persuasion to get a job at a lottery post, but a young Illinois woman with a passion for winning the Illinois lottery was hired by the company in the hopes of making the job her own.
The job posting was for a driver who drives a lottery car for a lottery winner.
But on Monday, the post driver received a call telling her that she had to cancel her job.
She was offered a position with the company that would pay $60,000 to $70,000 per year and be a full-time job.
I’m in a little bit of a state right now, she told the newspaper.
I can’t get a position that pays a lot of money.
She told the paper that she’s looking forward to starting a family, having kids and getting out of the lottery business.
The woman, who has not been identified, was on a three-week vacation with her husband when she received the call.
“We were on a cruise in Italy when we got the call and we were looking forward for the opportunity,” the woman said.
“The first thing I thought of was to go and find the company.
We’ve had so many people come forward saying, ‘I was in this position,’ and I think that’s a little over-promised.
We have a great team here.
We’re going to go to work.”
The woman said she has been in the lottery for five years and had to wait months to be hired.
In the wake of the announcement, lottery officials have apologized for the hiring.
“We were disappointed in the hiring of a young and inexperienced driver,” lottery spokesman Paul DeLuca told the Chicago Tribune.
“In the future, we will provide more detail regarding our hiring practices to assist those in need.”
“I was excited to get the job,” the driver told the Tribune.
Illinois lottery officials declined to comment.
