The Application Process

As you know, I've been looking for work to help support the family, & I'm in "apply for anything" mode. I am completely amazed at what I have to go through to submit an application for a drug store or a movie rental place! It takes almost an hour just to get through everything, & just when you think you're done, "POOF!" you get buried in more questions. There are the normal questions about employment & education history, references, blah blah blah, & then they get to your personality questions.

1. If you catch someone stealing, what would you do?
a. Let them keep it. They obviously need it!
b. Yell "Thief!" & proceed to beat the little bastards.
c. Go tell the manager.

2. It's ok to wear skimpy clothing to work...
a. Duh, I'm a skank & need to show it if I got it!
b. Anyone who does this should he hung by their wrists & stoned!
c. No, it's best to always dress professionally at work.

3. It's best to be punctual...
a. Always.
b. Most of the time.
c. You mean I'm expected to show up?!

4. When was the first day of your last period?
a. Oops! Sorry, wrong set of questions!

You see where I'm going with this? When the hell did this happen? When I was in high school, the apps were no problem. It seems now that I'm an adult, & more responsible, they wanna know everything! My name, age, weight, name of first boyfriend, bra size, did I ever steal lip gloss when I was 7...Sheesh!

Ok, enough bitching. Wish me luck, people, I'm going back in!

She works hard to attempt to get the money!


Because Google suggested when I started typing, & I always do what Google says. Plus I'm always up for some Shakira!

Peace & Love

    Good Luck!! I agree, I hate the application process, that's why a resume should be the only thing you need, why do we have to fill all this other stuff out too?! grr...

  2. Good luck! I Hope you find a job - I agree, apps ask a LOT of odd questions. But coming from a hiring standpoint it is so hard to know if the person you are hiring is worth it or not.....We have made some BAD decisions and it was cause we didn't ask the right questions...

    I hope you find a job soon :)
