Ugh, Job Searching
Wednesday, May 09, 2012
So I'm job searching again. I'm not trying to leave McDonald's because of any negative experiences or anything like that. They've actually been pretty good to me. However.... the hours I'm getting lately, even with my requested time off, is barely enough to pay for my gas to drive 24 miles each way for each shift. Especially when I have two locations in town. My original plan was to try to just transfer to one of the stores in town...... until I found out they want me to quit my current store just to get an interview. Um.. I don't think so! I don't even get a guarantee that I'll get a job! Talk about screwing a person over! So I've basically thrown that idea out the window and I put some feelers out amongst my friends on FB for any jobs they may know about.
One of my close friends works for Auto Zone and told me that if I put in an application, she would talk to the store manager and ask him to pull my application. So tonight, I filled out the application so that she can talk to him tomorrow morning. The thing I hate most about finding a new job is the actual monotony of filling out job applications. I can fly through a job interview and not get nervous, but the thought of having to sit down and commit 45 minutes to answering boring questions and filling in the same information for the million-ith time.... Well that's the part I dread.
So anywho, keep me in your prayers that I find something fairly quickly and that they'll understand that I'm a full time student who can only work certain hours.
