As soon as I saw the announcement I signed up online and will be doing face time to meet with some of the managers to put in resumes/coverletters to
some of the very local ones. Still have to drive a city away either direction. We have every other place besides mcD's, sonics, wendy's, and KFC.
I know the job will probably suck. When I started as a security guard, I loved the job. Especially working at community pools. Unfortunantly alot of
local contacts got closed (not enough money) and alot of guards lost their jobs. I didn't have senority and expected I'd be out but my boss,
supervisors, and coworkers all agreed I should be kept on. So I'm on call for emergencies. They understand when I'm busy and can't go. Although
lately I've been turning them down more and more with all my job hunting or taking an occasional sunday off.
Anyways back to McD's, I expect that while the work will suck, it'll provide money and ample enough time to job search for other things. Also it'll
provide experience and something to add to the resume. For as much experience as I have and such. it's tough now to even get something in retail,
starbucks, etc. without having a stupid McD's job. So I just figure, screw it, it'll be money in my pocket (to pay the bills XP )
Some people here could learn a lot from this man..... Are you a man or woman?
Man, and thanks for the comment.
It's true though, I've been through a time where I've been a bum. Had to get my head screwed on right. And I'm not the only one that should learn
the hard lesson of, "work when you get work". Alot of people are going around looking for jobs, but turning their nose up when they find small
opportunities. You can't think of a small job like McD's as "lowering yourself" or "doing slavelabor", "being another gear" etc. You have to
figure out the positive opportunities no matter the situation.
Let's say (I wish this were true) I was hired at McD's today. Here's what can happen.
-I'm no longer spending time wasting gas seeking a position
-money to support me, my family, and my bills
-I would have sometime during the day off to find a different job
-cashier/customer service other fastfood and retail locations can accept Cause you know, customer service serving ten years in an independent mural
art/childrens art classes means squat. So does volunteer work with americorps as a team trainer. Including the chance to lead new orleans saints in a
volunteer project. But nope, that's not acceptable experience.
-oh and can transfer to other McD's when I want to change geographic location for college or some other thing.
-still plenty of time for hobbies, do security guard work, seeking other jobs, doing school, etc.
All traded for 4 to 8 hour days working in a fast food place. Lemme see, is that harder then working at buffalo wild wings, quickly learning the cook
position as a holiday temp. I'd think not.
Argh at this point it's sorta a pointout of the benefits with small bit of a rant about what hiring managers expect on a resume.
