Lost my job a few months back, went down as a termination, though it was more my company's way of doing lay offs, whatever.. It was the first job I ever held, retailer (was Target) and I was there for almost 3 years when I got **** canned. My education doesn't really go passed my high school diploma. I attended an art school for a couple of quarters before deciding it wasn't what I wanted to do. Now here I am just applying everywhere, various retailers, fast food joints, restaurants, whatever I can, and not getting a single hit. I interviewed at a Denny's that was opening, twice actually (though both interviews were in the same day), was told things were looking good, they'd let me know (and they had said just about everyone that went in that day was going to be brought on) aaaaaaaand they never got back to me (this was before I was fired btw). Applied at Knott's Berry Farm a couple times, interviewed both times, same deal, told they would let me know, and they never follow up. Chipotle, same story. I don't mind not getting the job (well I do, but meh), but lying to me and never saying one way or the other (especially when you tell me you will let me know one way or the other) pisses me off. Things are looking up a bit though. Applied at a used book store in the mall. Went in a few days later since I was at the mall anyways, figured I'd check up on my application, make sure they got it, that whole thing. Was told applications go through corporate, so they wouldn't have that info. I answered a trivia question, won a free book, talked with the employees a bit, and the manager said she had to talk to the owner the next day anyways, so she'd check in on things, and after that I left. About a week later I go back to see how that went, same manager was working. Talked to her a little, and eventually asked if she spoke with the owner. She said that he told her they can't hire on anyone else right now because their sales have been relatively poor. She then told me that, and while she shouldn't have been saying as such, they have an employee there that's not working out so well, and they are definitely keeping me in mind. After that I just spend about an hour or so talking to her about books, movies, just kinda hanging out, making a good impression. That seems promising, so hopefully that works out. It sucks though, I'm struggling just to find ****ing entry level work, why should that be so difficult? I mean it's not like I'm not qualified to work a McDonald's or a Walmart or something.
