Things you do not say, when seeking potential employment.
I work in Customer Service at Anthracite's. I don't know if its standard to all stores, but my Hiring manager has come to trust me, and asks me to screen applicants for jobs. Meaning, that if you come to my counter for an app, I look you over, and put a note of my impression of you on the app for the manager. We have had about 20 people a day applying, which is a lot. So this takes a load off the manager. now, a lot of the people i get are lovely people, who just want a job. ANY JOB.
But then... you get the ones who i suspect are a few nuts short of a squirrel.
My counter is built in such a way, that there is a little room behind it with a code locked door. If i'm back there, you can't see me. I can see you. I can hear you too.
A group of young gentlemen came up to the counter while I was in the back room counting the till. THIS, is what i heard.
Guy 1: "Yo man, how much you pays for your weed?"
Guy 2: *Mumbles incoherent amount*
Guy 3: F**K MAN! thats too much for weed.
Guy 1: Bro, I can hook you up. let me hook you up. Get you high for a low price."
At this point... I stepped out from around the room. They all instantly straightened up and attempted to be presentable, which is hard to do with your pants buckled around your knees.
Guy1" Um..excuse me miss. you hiring? I"m really good at selling stuff."
me: I bet you are. will you submit to a drug test? (they ask that on the app too.)
guy 2. "oh..hah. f**K no."
ME: Then we are not hiring. Good day.
also especially love the ones that come to me, do a return, CUSS ME OUT because they used a coupon, so they only paid a dollar out of pocket, therefore only getting a dollar back. (you get back, what you paid OUT . OF. POCKET.) then they want a job app.
excuse me? you just called me every name in the book, now you want a job app? oh,and you want me to say something nice about you to the manager? GTFO.
