I was but i left 5 months ago. because i had to much to do at home seeing we had a wedding coming up and every thing so it was very hard to volunteer.
so i had to leave but now i'm married and home life has settled down and i have lots of free time on my hands now. So i phoned up today to get the ball rolling on my come back.
They're making you re-apply from scratch after only 5 months out? That's a bit naughty.
Have you rung HR to ask if you can just come back?
