My son has been trying to get a job at Safeway for almost 6 months. Three days a week, for three weeks straight, he went in at the store manager's request only to be told each time to "come back on ______" each time. The reasons ranged from their computers being down, to a surprise meeting. Finally, the store manager showed up for the interview, but because it had been SO LONG since my son first applied, his application expired.
A few times, my son has gotten there at the scheduled time only to find that the manager wasn't even there. Twice, the manager has asked him to come in right then, and five minutes later (if that), my son arrives to find the manager has left.
Today was the most recent time this has happened. Arrived ten minutes early for his interview, and was told to come back tomorrow, because of a "surprise meeting" the manager had to attend.
Is this typical for Safeway? I've never heard of this happening. It makes me feel like the manager is just messing with my son, but I'm not That Mom who is going to call on my son's behalf - making him look like a child and me like an overbearing stage mom.
Any suggestions, advice or insights?
