two job interviews! woo!

one tomorrow at 9 am at Office Max, and another at 10 am on thursday at Michael's. Both part time, but i'll freaking take what i can get.

now, just to wow them with my personality.

all the other places i dropped apps off i called as well, most the hiring manager wasn't in, so they took messages, JoAnn's i'm sposed to call on Monday, and Coffee's On tomorrow before 2... Value Village, the one that i thought would be begging me to come in for an interview, said "mmmmyeeeaah. don't call us, we'll call you if we're interested. kaythxbye"

the only one i DIDN'T call was Subway, cuz i so don't want to work there. if these don't pan out immediately, i'll call and beg them, too.

I used to work at Staples, which is a lot like Office Max. Not too bad of a job. Try to squeeze your way into Copy Center, or whatever it is they call it; that's where you'll have the most fun..and it's just..oh so much better than cashiering or customer service. :P

yeah, i thought of having them train me in CopyMax (as its' called there), but seeing as all the other cashiers quit because of leaving for school....

i don't forsee them allowing me to do such a thing anytime soon...

i think working at michael's would be fun

they're soooooo much more relaxed and understanding than office max. in a way, it is so tempting to quit office max and work there, though i love my coworkers at om (most days), and they DO pay me 75 cents more an hour than michaels.

my life would be made SO much easier if om would only schedule me part time like they hired me on as...

Good luck! I definitely know the feeling. >.<; Thankfully, one of the many places I had applied interviewed me and I started work today. I hate work...but money is good. >.>;

woo hoo! congrats (though this reply is seasons old and such!)

yes, it was VERY hard to go from completely unemployed and hardly ever leaving the house for 4 and a half months, to working 50 hours a week plus, and on my feet! >_

*crossing fingers for 'ya*

I worked at Subway for two weeks last summer. It wasn't so bad. :p I got a free sammich every day.

mmmm subway.

Columbia Sportswear is always hiring, it's just weird jobs. I don't know if you've got training in any of them that are open, but you can see which jobs are available on www.columbia.com

ooh, thank you!

i still need to fervently look for a job, a REAL job.

although working a job that i wear a uniform and don't have to worry about other clothes suits my needs at this point.

maybe after i get out of this house and can FIND my things again, i will begin looking even more fervently for a real job.

you will be fabulous, I'm sure!!
Sep. 26th, 2003 01:46 pm (UTC)

although, in retrospect, i don't know if i would have done it differently...

Good luck! Part-time sounds good at first, to ease you back into the work-world and leaves plenty of time for internetting and singing. I'd opt for Staples myself, lots of useful things to buy there with a discount, JoAnn's sounds like you'd be a slave to all the little ladies who go in there looking for 1 square inch of this pattern, then 1 millimeter of thread, then claim a damage for discount.. you don't need that.

You go get'm! Get them good!

Re: "Stay pink soft and oily!"
i don't get a discount at office max, but it pays me 75 cents more an hour than michaels. michaels, i get the kick arse discount (25%!) so i guess i'll work both for now ;)

and so much for being part time! michaels keeps apologizing for not giving me many hours, and i keep telling them i DO NOT mind, seeing as i work 40 hours a week at office max, and i still work enough at michaels to get the discount i want :) so what's a few hellish days a week where i work 14 hours straight? *shrugs*

Give the hiring manager the link to your journal and they will love you to bits like the rest of us!

Good luck!
Sep. 19th, 2003 01:33 pm (UTC)
LOL! *blushes furiously*

i did discover that one of my coworkers had a deadjournal ;)

Good luck to you again! If those fuckers don't hire you this time, collect some fleas from your apartment and then let them loose at those businesses!
Aug. 25th, 2003 03:32 pm (UTC)

that would be grand!
Aug. 12th, 2003 07:59 pm (UTC)
Good Luck!

oh, how sweet and naive i was back then ;)
Aug. 12th, 2003 09:21 pm (UTC)
Good luck.

Wish me luck as well, as I've recently joined the ranks of the unemployed. ::sigh::
Sep. 24th, 2003 08:13 pm (UTC)
thanks, and definitely good luck and stuff!

unemployment is so freaking horrid. i hope to never have to deal with it again. i mean, it was nice having 4 months off; however, the havoc it wrecked on my ego and my moods and such were SO not worth it.

now, just to wow them with my personality.

heh. it's in the bag. ;)
Aug. 29th, 2003 11:27 am (UTC)
*blush* thanks :)

and since i DID 'woo' them, now i get to deal with the consequences of pissing them both off as i try to juggle both of them.


both have me scheduled for the same exact shift on labor day AND tuesday, and i think thursday as well.

i dunno what i'm going to do about that...
Aug. 12th, 2003 11:43 pm (UTC)
Good luck...
