Might be close to getting a job.

Post by Sierraman on Tue Sep 04, 2012 9:15 pm

Ok, guys, you all remember me? Anyway, I think i have nailed it, Last saturday, I got an interview at In-N-Out Burger (Popular burger joint in California) and after the interview, she said she really liked so she scheduled me for a second interview with the higher level managers the day after, when i went, i felt like i did pretty good, both managers smiled during the whole thing and said that i would hear from them wednesday.

So, what do you guys think? did i get the job?

California has rate of 10.3, ouch! RI is even higher.

Keep at it and keep updating your resume. I wish I had some different advice...I'm sure you are sick of hearing the same old thing. Evil or Very Mad

I don't know if this will help, but I am hearing of more and more people finding some sort of employment. Slowly, very slowly, it seems things are improving a bit. I know it seems like it will never end...I've been there, but you WILL find employment again.

I have been telling people that for TWO yrs now, believe me I understand! sometimes I cringe when I say it!

And It's not your fault!! It shouldn't take that long but it does, unfortunately for many many many people.

Very hard to find more than minimum wage. I've had a very good pay temp/contract job recently, however they never last. Had another temp agency express dis-satisfaction at my resume because I have not stayed in any job over a year since 2008.....due to no fault of my own.....

I am not buying this economy thing, i know a lot of people at my age (19) who get jobs as soon as they start looking with no experience whatsoever!

I'm in kind of the same boat I'm past 19 although at times I do not act like it. I applied for a job and she seemed to be interested in me asked for my number. It's a new business and she sent me three emails anyway was told that they planned to open the end of September and to send my name and number. I did as requested and she responds back with excuses that permits went through and she's not sure if she can open anytime soon.

I put an ad on craigslist--I know, I know--that went some thing like this, Seeking company to work for that has no drama, whose HR department is professional, courteous and who cares for their employees. It went on to say something like, who encourages creativity, employee imput, who appreciates hard work their employees put in even giving up weekends and family time... .

I'm pretty sure I worded it differently but its the gist.
The respons was pretty legit looking. Until the permit thing which was suspicious.

Its when you don't think you made it with the manager or interviewer that you got the job.

Thats great sierraman! Glad to hear it.

I just watched the movie "the company men" yesterday starring ben afflec. Its pretty good. has anyone seen it? He plays a man who gets laid off along with many others at his xompany. Goes through selling all of his possessions, taking a lower paying job etc. worth the watch. I like the part when he calls the woman who fired him and leaves several nasty messages. He also tells off a potentional employer lol

I just felt like i had an interview foul, I interviewed at a comic book shop and they had asked me on the application on a scale of 1-10 how much do i know about Magic The Gathering, Judging from the wording i thought they meant magic in general so i put a 7 and when they asked me about that, i said i never had played magic the gathering before and i had to apologize profusely, i felt like that was a very awkward moment and ruined my interview....

Sorry Sierraman. Yeah, it's really hard to get a read on how you do. They can be real pocker faces, especially the ones who have a lot of experience at interviewing people. They act really nice, their body language toward you is positive, then they leave you scratching your head when you didn't get the job. The other possibility is you genuinely did do well, however someone better in their eyes came along after your interview with them.

Talk about art imitating life!! I will definately check it out, especially the part where he tells off the potential employer.

When I first saw the movie, I thought parts were interesting, such as leaving the msgs, but like most, it didn't hit home until 4 years ago. I have to admit I thought the part about the msgs was silly. I like the "tell off", she deserved it. Now that we are living it, the real frustration he was facing is just sitting in our hearts and on our tongues.

Sierraman, don't ever give up, frustrating as it is, if you do, they win. We, here are all pulling for you. It may not help or mean much, but you have friends here and we understand. I am encouraged you are getting so many interviews. for some of us here, the wait between responses seems like years.
