I disagree i have been looking and applying for jobs that are well below my previous pay scale. And being turned away due to lack of exp.
I seriously do not understand this.
I took a part time job with Mc Donalds opening every morning for breakfast last winter. They trained me, they did not need previous experience.
Where I'm at Mc Donalds get's about 300 applications per job opening. They have one or two openings every 6 months, and almost no where else hires.
In these cases even knowing everyone who works there doesn't give you a chance...
I'm not picky about a job, I was in the Army, and have endless patience to do whatever, for money..
places like wendeys havn't hired in over a year. I know Iv'e been checking with them the whole time.
Get over it guys.
Your happy little world doesn't exist.
Just because you have a job doesn't make you normal. It makes you lucky.
Quit believing lies. I will work any job for $8.00. Anything.
I used to hang out with mexicans at gas stations and wait till pick up trucks pulled in asking for hard labor. Don't give me any bull crap about hard
Some spots are MUCH worse than others. If I survive till I can move to raleigh, then I can probably find a job in a day, but then again I am highly
skilled, and have about 8 years experience retail. I know how to talk to people.
The ratio here seems to be about 300 people applying for every one job. I'm not making that number up. When a 5 guys opened up they had over 1,000
applications. I think they hired like 15 people.
Oh and I am not on nor have I ever had government help. When you quit a job to go to school on money you saved from the Army that you have to pay
cause you were screwed out of the GI bill, you don't get unemployment.
There's no work here. The system is being propped up, so you guys can't see it yet from your towers...
Everyone I know is in my boat. I WANT to work BAD. All I have found to do is put my lawn mower to good use in others yards, but even they don't
really have much to pay me, can only charge $10 for a yard... So before paying for gas I make like 20 a week there....
It's sucky guys. Believe it.
And do you guys not know where Detroit is?
