Haha, I applied at Circuit City before I was hired at Target 6 years ago

lol, Target will never call me back. I applied their about 7 months ago, and was told to wait for a manager because my application looked very good.

When the manager came up to, she said... "oh, you are looking for a job, umm we are not hiring right now".

For some reason, Target will not give me the time of day, but they are more than happy to take my money when I shop there.

Sucks when that happens. Have you found something elsewhere?

Manager's don't do first interviews, that person was merely a team lead that
probably just didn't feel like interviewing you
No, but it really is hit and miss...There really are a LOT of good applicants,
but half the time, we are fully staffed and just can't afford the payroll
for a new hire.
Sorry you got dissed. No matter what, you were entitled to a FIRST interview...Everyone is, even if those that scored badly on the test.

Library page.

It took some time and a bit of twisty effort (and some luck, definitely) to get it, but I start Friday and will be working part-time the first week, full time the next week (at which I'm w00t-ing, because it's finally a reason to cheer for Spring Break). The summer is full-time, too, but most of the year it's part time. I've volunteered there for a few years, and now I get to do it all the time and get PAID for it. =)

I was a library page for two years and loved it. It's a great part-time job.

When I was in college, I did a work study at the Library. It was nice and peaceful.

I was not asked to come back the next semester. The Liberians got mad at it me because I tried to help students find books. It turns out they went fours years to college to do that, and they did not like student workers doing their job.

Cool. You are so lucky!

(Wishing I could get into library work, because I really loved working in the library at school. It was great. But that's one of those things.)

What are you doing now if you don't mind me asking??
