Job Searches

Some of you may not know this, but there was a time when you could actually hand in a resume (or fill out an application) to a company, get a call for an interview, do the interview and find out then and there that you got the job or not.

This seems to be the most common process these days: Fill out application online. If it gives you the option to upload a resume it will still make you put that same information in the required fields anyway. Take a 100 question survey they use to weed out people people who are honest or simply don't know the correct answer they are looking for...but mostly to weed out honest people. All of this which takes up to an hour to complete for only one job position.

After that, maybe you'll get a call in a week...or even a month...for an interview. If you do well on the interview, they will call you back for a second interview. If you do well on that one, in some rare cases, you'll have a job, and in others you'll get a call for a third fucking interview. And this is jobs like pushing carts at mother fucking Walmart. Seriously? Are you fucking kidding me? And on top of that, it's only part time.

Same thing goes for so many other low paying part time jobs. Lots of good people don't get jobs. This is all my opinion on the process mind you, from my own thoughts and observations...the lazy bastards that know how to lie and cheat their way get the job. Then the companies end up letting go of people and repeating the process.
