Wow — not even that job at the pet store???

I just called the store manager to find out about the job — I interviewed with her about a week and a half ago and when I called last Monday, she said there was no word yet and she had to wait for “payroll and the district manager.”

I just called and she said “We filled that position in our store…they still have positions open in the other 2 stores so I am waiting to hear about that…”

The other store is 12 miles from here.

What the hell could have happened??? Not even a pet store????

And why didn’t she call and tell me she hired somebody??? It’s the same thing as usual — YOU can be the one to follow up; they won’t lift a finger to call YOU.

Does anybody have any suggestions or any ideas? Holy shit — I need money and I need it badly.

I am sorry I even bothered.

The person who interviewed me was all of 2o years old.  And I couldn’t have that job, either???

If I knew why all of this was happening to me, it would be great. I can’t seem to get an in with anybody at all.

THis interview with this pet store reminds me of one that I had with another chain some 8 years back — the guy who ran the store had me go to the trouble of “sitting” for a urine drug screen and spoke to me for an hour. I did not get that job, either.

As I said:

Holy SHIT.

Now what do I DO?????

PS: I did not hear from the manager of the local restaurant, either.  That is not looking good, either and I do not want to be a pest and ask again “What’s going on”. I am letting that one go; this is the same kind of response I got from the other bar and grill that had a bartending job open last year.

When I asked why I didn’t get the job first she said “I don’t know…I sent everything in to corporate and to payroll…” and then she said “They must not have believed your references that you were qualified.”

Nobody on my reference list was called. And that is what I told her. She replied,  “Are you sure?”

This is what I get now: not even a job in retail.  And I made it known that I was pretty pissed I didn’t get their job.
