Okay lil bit of question and rant and needing suggestions all thrown in one.
First off I'm trying to get a job. As you probably know I had to quit my job I had last year because of school and they refused to give me off for school so I had no choice but to quit on their busiest week (labor day week before it). So I been putting in applications all around and I been doing "call backs" and I went back to the one grocery store and K-mart and they both told me they are sorry but they won't be hiring me.... that really got me down!!! Mainly because my neighbor's wife works there and told me they are hiring morning cashiers which is what I applied for. So today we went into Aldi's and they had a bigh sign that says "CASHIERS NEEDED - $10.25 an hr" and I was PISSED when I read that....First of all...I applied for cashier a month ago so as far as I am concerned they need to RIP that dang sign off their freaking door and go look at the apps and hire me. I meet ALL of their requirements, previous cashiering experiance, im 18 and I have my diploma. I cant put in another app until 90 days after I submited mine...This is just so aggrivating, I wanna just say screw it, but I cant because I have a phone bill thats due and if I cant pay for it I gotta come up with 300 dollars to get out of the contract. So I need this job, or im basically screwed and in debt badly.
So I really want this aldi's job mainly because of how much you make an hour...I mean I'll be making more then my friend who has a degree in his job and I kind of would like getting paid more then him just becuase he likes rubbing his degree and stuff in my face, but aside the fact that I would like all that money to sit on my butt all day doing what I did last year but didn't get to sit and had to bag where as at aldis you dont even bag! So I am going to go tomorrow and ask to speak to a manager and see if he can help me because i've learned talking to the people who hire are USELESS they just tell you NO and ask you to leave. Im going to introduce myself politely and then tell him that I applied for a casher job about a month ago and I saw his sign on the door and I would like to know why I wasn't hired. Explain to him why I had to quit my last job and try to persuade him to hire me. Im really gonna try for this job...gee...10.25 an hour is really good pay!!! and I want my first car haha.
So my questions are....
1.) Am I doing the right thing by contacting the manager instead of the person who hires?
2.) I feel like my previous job is giving me a bad rep because my ex-co worker got fired from 3 jobs and still gets hired at the first place she applies too and I cant even get a freakin interview!!! Do you think maybe my previous job is giving me a bad rep?
3.) If I find out they are giving me a bad rep how do I stop this? Should I report them, and report them for how they use to work me double what I should have when I was underage and ask them to check into the new underage workers there? Report them for selling cigs to children 16? They are a BAD company to work for and just nasty, maybe reporting them for everything they did wrong will give the owner a wake up call and i'll stop getting bad reps.
4.) What can I do to get a job, if alid's don't hire me? because im really ready to give up!!!!!!
When the thunder rumbles, I can hear your sweet voice tell me you love me again. When the lighting strikes, I can see your anger in your eyes that you had to leave us. When the rain pours, I can feel your hug once more. That is the power of a memory.- CJ/// Someone once said, no boy you date will ever truly break your heart but there will be one man who can and that pain will never heal. I understand them now, my dad broke my heart 1/21/12...</3...and I honestly believe that nobody else could have went out so honorably and respectfully as he did. I'll see you on the other side.
