    Question Wooo, I got interviewed

    By office max. I put in a resume and application like 4 weeks ago. Nothing happpened, and finally a teacher friend of mine called a former student that works there and had her talk to the boss. He called me, and I had an interview like an hour ago. I'd be a salesguy in electronics and stuff like that. STARTING WAGES OF 8$ an hour!!!! WOOHOO!!! HELL YEAH!!! 2.00$ more than all my friends.

    Ha.

    i once got asked what would i do if i caught my own mother stealing from the store. I said i let her go but confront her later.
    i didn't get the job.

    next year i applied and got a differnent position and took some stuff myself, just to even the moral score.

    Yea, Office Max....
    I worked at one in St. Paul a while back. Pretty cool place. Decent pay.
    I did some unfortunate things that got me kicked out, though. Firstly, I made more commissions on computer sales than my managers and everyone else in the store! That really ****ed them off! Secondly, I called in sick and went to the State Fair with my family. Uh, one of my managers spotted me. He didn't confront me on the spot, but got me in the back room the next day... That pretty much got me canned. Oh well, good luck to you!

    One other thing, sort of off topic, but has anyone tried applying at Fleet Farm twice ... and getting rejected both times? Kind of hurts the ego, if you know what I mean. I think it was something to do with the morality questions on the 10-page exam you fill out...

    I applied for a job in a computer shop while I was at Uni and got turned down as apparently I knew too much about computers

    Well we don't actually want the customers to know what there buy know, do we?

    I have been kept out a job that I want with a great company for about a year now. Lately I have been kissing *** to try to get a job there, and finally have my foot in the door by doing contract work for them. Once I learn PHP I should be getting alot more contract work leading to full employment. Problem is that the head of the IT department os one of those types that don't like people that know more than they do, so I have been acting like a dunce around him. Guess I keep pining away!

    PS. RaZor... I keep wanting to put that "How piMP3d is your ride??" on a bumper sticker. You come up with that yourself?
