I Almost got a Job :(
I went to an interview this morning, I was going to geta job as a baker in this local bakehouse, and everything went really really well. The way the management talked to me sounded like I was basically hired, but they still had another interview to conduct.

Of course who comes in for the final interview? A lady with 25 years of experience baking.... BAH!!!! I know she'd be better for a job, but I just wish they gave her a job in management or something, and let me work the $7/hour position.

Oh well, the manager said they liked me, and especially liked my enthusiasm... and are keeping my application on the top of the stack they say. Hopefully something good comes of this.

Sorry, just needed to vent a little

Tell them we'll never go there again!:tongue:

Seriously, I have seen many, many people get hired after they didn't the first time. Many employers really do keep those apps on the top of the pile. It saves them a lot of grief.

So keep your chin up.

Ahhh College cook- I wish they gave you a chance.I am just wondering why someone with 25 years expierence is taking a 7/hr job??? Maybe there is something better for you on the horizon with better pay too!!

I hate that.:mad: Last time I was looking for a job, so many places required experience. How was I to get any experience, if no one would hire me?! Sorry to hear that college cook, maybe she won't work out for them.

Something better is just around the corner. Don't you just hate it when people tell you that? I did when that happened to me. But, just wait, you'll see, you'll find something for even more pay, or a better place. I'm sorry your so down. Try not to let it get to you too much.

Keep your spirits high! You will get your job, you'll see. Best of luck to you and keep us posted.

Sorry to hear this CC, keep your chin up. Just remember they made the mistake not you. And some employer is going to find a treasure very soon YOU.

I have another app. in at this really nice Italian place, and I know they are hiring as well. I think I'll give them a call tomorrow... b/c I really need to find some work. College is just too expensive.

On the bright side my dad called today and I told him the story. And he said to me "You'd probably be able to apply for more jobs if you had your car with you, huh?" I said of course.... I've been trying to get him to send it to the repair shop for months now. So he said he'd get it taken in this weekend. Hopefully next week I can drive home and pick it up (SPRING BREAK WOOHOO!!!!) and then I can put in apps all over town. There's a lot of restaraunts hiring now b/c most of the staff everywhere leaves for the summer... and if I get my car back I can finally have a real shot at finding some work.

So at least one good thing is coming out of this.

Anybody here ever wait tables in a colege town? I'm guessing they're mostly bad tippers, but i always tip well, so who knows. If I could make some cash as a waiter that would definitely open up some options for me as well.
