Almost Suicidal in San Antonio, Texas

No, I entered a valid date, the system repeatedly chopped off the last two digits making the entry invalid. Honestly, I'm not even sure what job I was applying for. Something I found on linked in. After multiple attempts I was finally able to submit.

Moseyed on over to Amazon, I had seen a posting on Indeed. That job posting didn't exist but there were a couple of others I was interested in. No option to create a profile, only to apply via social network. Tried using my linked in account; the window would open, then shut.

Enter your email address to reset your password if you are already registered was an option. I did. They said they would email me a password reset. They did not.

Okay, ready to call it a day! Unfriggingbelievable.

And then this from a county job I applied for: While your application was forwarded to the department for consideration, you were not selected at this time.

Please log into your account to verify you have received this message. Really? I'd rather open a beer, it is Friday afternoon!

LOL! My older sister is a Neanderthal. When presented with a voicemail she would instantly hit "0". She has done this for years. That option is going away.

Sometimes I find her curled up on the floor in a fetal position, drooling on herself. I know that she hit "0" only to hear "You have made an incorrect selection. If you kknow your party's extension, blah, blah, blah". She cant stand this. Ha!

I especially love the pull down menus that don't give you an honest option. I knew a recent application I tried to complete would be a bust when the only pull down option to a question of "current employment" was "years/months". There was no option to even put in "n/a".

I discovered that sometimes pressing zero twice will sometimes work. When it does, I feel sooo good!!

My sister says that she sees apps and where it asks for Salary Requirements", people put in $1.00 just to get it through the system. HA!

The thing does compare it to a set salary range and if its too high -Buh bye!

Press the number for Sales or New Accounts; a person will always pick up. Computers are terrible at sales.

Nice! Like I was saying in another great post here, I have a whole list of things I personally would like to see made completely illegal, such as asking for salary requirements. We all know that information only helps them to pick the lowest bidder. Whatever happened to the days of employers and employees negotiating a fair salary? OOOps....don't say it Blue. I don't even own a resume printed on pretty paper with a matching envelope.

A resume printed on pretty paper!

Those were the days. You got dressed up, went in and filled out the application. THEN, they interviewed you, and often ended the interview with: Can you start next week.

That was of course a century ago!

You'll laugh at this. I was in high school when I accompanied a friend of mine to a job interview. She graduated a year ahead of me. I waited in the lobby while he was being interviewed.

When they were finished, a lady came out and began asking me a few questions. Mind you, I wasn't looking for a job, had no idea what a resume was and I was wearing cut-off shorts! And I had absolutely ZERO experience. Within 10 minutes, I was hired on the spot to work a few hours after school every day!

Here is the kicker. I worked for her in what they use to call Personnel. LOL!

Yeah, I am becoming more and more like my mother every day now.
