Forever, they took 2 months to call me to do a simple cleaning job. I felt like I was being interrogated just for my past bad choices that happened 20 years ago. and to still hold me to that when no one else would, makes me feel like my skills were never usable but my background is something to be feared like a terrorist.

If you are in need of a job, you will starve before you are accepted. I thought getting a job in education might help me get into the school's MBA program. Being that I am a business mindset type person, their answer is "No".

If you are in need real work and a future where you quickly begin work, then apply to management and companies that need you more for real work. The more managers need to get done, seriously, the faster they will make decisions. If you are waiting too long, you are dealing with the wrong people.
