Good luck Kay! I know quite a few people who work at McD's and it seems like a pretty nice place to work.

I'm getting scared for interviews. I haven't done a remotely serious one in years, but I'm doing a co-op program now. Basically means I'll be doing serious interviews until I get a job in the next few months.

Thanks everyone

Put in some more to a convenience store in the area. I'm hoping at least one place accepts me.

TheMatt wrote:Ha, I just spent my whole day at work interviewing people! Hiring really sucks and no company likes doing it. In my experience they just want to find someone remotely qualified as quickly as possible so they can move on to the next thing that needs to be done. It's super time consuming, it costs a ton of money and its just as awkward to interview people as it is to be interviewed by someone. I do like going through people's resume's and applications and laughing at the shitty ones though. But that's just because I'm a terrible person.
I'd have to agree with that. I hated interviewing and hiring at my old job. Glad I don't have that responsibility anymore haha.

I was out while they called and the supervisor went home before i was able to call back so I'll have to wait till tommorow to schedule, but i got an interview at McDonald's so...

Hoping it works out i havent been employed in so long, but this would be a good start.

It's weird..this sounds REALLY egotistical but I'm pretty good at interviewing. I'm an art student, so the art of bullshitting is ingrained into my skull. I'm terrible at cover letters and applications though so GETTING to that stage is always tough.

Good luck Kay, hopefully you return to the land of the employed!

Got an interview at 2:30 on wednesday.

I got this now hopefully i can get decent hours. Applied for the day crew so the time should be right, but I'd like at least 20 a week.

Thanks

I think I'm fairly decent at interviews too. Just gotta go in with the same confidence i have when trying to get into a girl's pants.

but seriously my charisma is probably one of my most notable ualities so i shouldnt have a problem.

That is a bad combo indeed.

But oh well, you're getting out there. Any particular reason why you stayed off the job wagon, Kay?

Depression mostly. I was with someone for the majority of last year. We broke up she said we should still stay friends i accepted. I thought things were going fairly well, and then out of nowhere she just leaves, abandons me. Friends, lovers whatever we were I put a lot of energy into trying to make that woman happy, and she just up and leaves never gave me a reason and she bullshitted her way through an apology when she returned.

Then after months of pretending to be my friend i cut ties. She wasn't worth the effort. It just literally sucked me dry I didnt want to do much of anything these past months, hell almost this entire year. Throw in family problems, and lol its been a lot of fun XD

I've people who are worth my time and affection a hell of a lot more than she ever was, and working to get them something special as a gift this holiday is a good enough reason for me to try this again. Hopefully i stick with it.

and sorry for the depressing rant you asked.

That I did. The proper way to bring these things up is to start chain smoking and wearing aviators. Then when people ask you what happened you just say something like "I've seen some shit, boy." and then squash the cigarette under your boot heel as you reach to light another.

Nope, no steam. Not much of a computer gamer.

In all honesty though, I'd rather get it over during the daytime than waking up at 3 AM in the morning to do the typical Black Friday time. Black Friday has taken Thanksgiving away from me for a while, at least now I won't be tired and exhausted feeling. I just hope they don't make me run register. I hate ringing up that many people.

And Kay, when you told your story above I thought about this song.  To me music is therapy and a way to escape, so maybe you'll like this song.



Probably one of the most depressing songs ever.

It's a nice song though it doesn't uite fit. She would only be "intimate" with me after we "broke up" after she left it felt like she just used me for that in the end. I was really the only person she was comfortable doing that with.

I'm doing better though i still feel guilty cause i went off on someone for no reason because of it. She disappeared for a bit and when she came back i spent the night screaming at her. I still feel a bit bad about it >_>

In any case on to happier things. Interview tomorrow. I should have the job. Got a bank account set up across the street today.

Good luck, Kay! I'm sure your interview will go well and you'll get the job :D

I hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving. I'm still trying to figure out how to get enough rest for Black Friday, I work when GameStop opens at midnight until 8am. Last year I got really goofy and was pretty much dancing at the register trying to stay awake.. Not looking forward to that again.

Have fun at Walmart, Bret :P

You as well! What kind of deals do you guys have? I'm hoping for a deal on Ratchet: Into the Nexus and Tearaway, so let me know if you guys have a cheaper price for those games!

When I'm tired, I get pretty slap happy as well. It only gets worse once I start drinking Mountain Dew. Chocobot is a perfect example of why I'd rather work on Thanksgiving. I'm always up 1 PM-10 PM. I'd rather be alert and wake and miss a holiday about food than eat the food and put my body through hell from 12 AM-8 AM. Do you feel the same way, chocobot?

Actually...my girlfriend is looking for a, as she put it, "big" game to play. Something that will suck her in, take up a lot of time. Been trying to find something...you guys probably have recommendations. She's an RPG fan, she loves Mass Effect, Final Fantasy. Would be good to get her a new game for Christmas.

Thanks hope you're able to get enough rest *hugs*

My last job was a paper route and on weekends i had to work from about 1-6/7am. Sundays were the worst ;~; Though i kind of just made my sleep schedule so i got up at like 1-3am everyday to compensate. Glad this job at McD's in the afternoon shift.

I worked at a McDonald's when I was in 9th grade and I put my two weeks notice in. My friend that worked there said that the manager said that I got fired. Even though I didn't I guess I did?

The interview went okay but ugh they got like 10 other applicants, and i have no experience in food service. So i dont think it matters that much.

Have to wait till wednesday next week if i dont get a call by then i dont have the job, and im gonna be stressed out till then and perhaps afterwards too aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Maybe ill fill out some more applications just in case, but i really need a job ;~;

I've had a cold for about 2 weeks now. I can't seem to shake it. I thought I was finally at the back end of it, but I felt really really terrible all of a sudden this afternoon. All I want to do is play some games tonight but I just don't have the energy...
