Thank you!

Honestly, it was a little weird, because this lady just went on and on and on and said she liked to get to know candidates personally.

Oh, and she got personal!!!

--She is upset that her daughter is dating this young boy who accused the parish priest of molesting him (and then admitted he lied.)

--Her marriage isn't going well, but she can't leave her husband because she knows he couldn't pay her child support anyway, and she wants to buy her own house and knows he'd fight her for it if she did.

--We talked about our fathers dying of cancer when we were kids (yes, that came-up.)

--Heard about her mother's relationship issues after her father died.

On and on and on and on.

She then told me second round would require a VERY in-depth personality test which takes 3.5 hours. She gave me some tips on it.

She had two young women talk to me for a while, give me a tour of the office (wow, there were a lot of cute young men.......................), and showed me where the microwave and Keurig machine were. (Important stuff!)

Thank you!

I almost belted a fellow waitress the other night. She's 22, graduated from college a few months ago, has a "big girl job" as she calls it, but only three days a week. She was telling the hostess (and I was overhearing, and these were pretty much her exact words):

"I'm going to take my time choosing a job because I know I'm going to get SO MANY OFFERS. That's just how I am because my resume is VERY strong and it's just the kind of worker I am. I have NEVER lost a job, I have only resigned, and whenever I quit a job, people are SO upset and don't know where they're going to find somebody else like me. I know my current boss is worried I'm going to quit soon and are probably going to beg me to stay."

Um?

Okay, I have a great resume and am a good worker and I still lose jobs and haven't exactly had dozens to pick from.

And, don't kid yourself. Nobody's invaluable in this economy. They can let you go and find fifty people right behind you who will be just as good.

She was SO irritating.

cibc, she is 22, which equals dumb as dirt, no matter how smart she is. At that age, she still believes she deserved every single soccer and t-ball trophy she was "awarded" in elementary school.
Even if she does land a job in the next year, reality will set in. It's just a matter if time.

Now that you have experience, you should look for a job in a high-end restaurant. I've been waitressing for 10 years, and I can count on one hand the number of times I've made less than $50. Look for a place that sells entrees in the $20-30 range. That way, with apps and cocktails, you can sell about $50/person. It translates into better money.

Never got this question at an interview before: "What will you do if you don't get this job?"

Was I supposed to respond with, "Punch my fists to the heavens and scream,"Whyyyyy God whyyyyyyyy?"

I said I'd keep-on going and just be happy I had a great interview, because you never know if somebody you met will come back into your life in the future, and that I believe you always end-up where you are supposed to be, then gave a quick recap of how I was hired for the job I was at for 3 years which ended-up meaning a lot to me...I didn't even meet my boss, just his assistant and his dogs, and then he called me on Christmas night to tell me his dogs liked me and asked if I could start the next day...and I was clearly meant to be there.

OMG WHY DO I TELL MY MOTHER ANYTHING?

"You answered that question wrong. You were SUPPOSED to tell them it would be THEIR LOSS if they didn't hire you. You're supposed to SELL yourself."

I'm looking right now to see who is hiring! I'm near Red Bank (redbanknj.org | Home Page | Borough of Red Bank, New Jersey 07701) which is a supercute and trendy little town and several places there are hiring. I know a lot of those places get busier around the holidays.

It's pretty sad getting up and going to work and coming home with $4!!!
