Most bigs companies don't tell employees below management if they are hiring.
Not to mention half the time you get hired somewhere and they say they're going to hire more people they never do you're just going to be expected to pick up all of the shifts of people that they never hired
Filling out online is so tedious I'd rather do it in person, it's a long process the interview and waiting for the first check
Things sure have changed
THIS IS THE MOST ANNOYING PART OF THE JOB HUNTING PROCESS.
That sucks how things have changed. I got all of my jobs by showing the initiative to come down personally to talk to the manager.
THE STRUGGLE IS REAL. Your chances of being hired are WAY better when you introduce yourself in person, but now everything is so automated, it's impossible 😭
For real bruh🥱
one time i called a place and asked if they were hiring (actually many places and i’m sure others have experienced this alot as well) and they will just hang up. lmao
In the 90s and early 2000s this was how I found all my jobs.
i hate doing things like these online i wanted to work at our local supermarket once i think i was 15 or something so i go in there i ask at the service desk if they are still looking for work and they say yes but that is all online so i thought great ( sarcastic ) so i went to went home immediately looked online of course could not find a vacancy for the supermarket where i wanted to work so i go back to the supermarket there is another lady behind the counter so i say hi are you still looking for people she says yes but that is all online and since i an introvert i said oh ok and walked away and now i work in another supermarket
Is your hair really pink? Because I love it!!
I literally can't do anything until you've submitted an application online. I can't hire you with a paper application. If you fill out one of our paper applications I can interview you, but can't hire you until you've filled out the online application. It literally won't let us put you in our system without that online application. It's so much better if you just submit the online application first and then call or set up an interview online.
This is so painfully accurate thst I feel like I've lived this exact moment...oh wait...I have lmao 🤣
Them: "Honey we're really busy" Us: I'll work for you Them: no thanks.....
That’s literally what happened to me when I went for an interview at Zara except they made me work for 4 hours for no reason as a “test” and never got called back. It was so weird and it didn’t help it was the 1st time I was looking for a job.
your badge is upside down is irritating
Companies are understaffed right now because a lot of people want to or can only work the same hours. So they aren't going to hire a team of people that only work afternoon. They want people who can be completely flexible. If you can't then they probably won't even interview you. I was trying to get a new job and said I was available all the time. They interviewed me and said they wanted to hire me. I had told them I started a coaching job and had limitations to my schedule, not even that bad just like I couldn't work like 3 nights during the weekday. They said they would think about it and never contacted me again.
Unrealistic. If they really were hiring, the employee would have shoved a uniform on them, set their MaNdAtOrY training videos playing in the break room and put you to work. If a place is hiring these days, they're dying for labor
The store background is buckle
Fun fact, this manager’s attitude will deadass keep me away from sending them an app
And then they're like "WhY caNt We FinD gOoD emPlOyeEs?"
This is seriously the way things are, anymore. We're all supposed to be Web savvy (and completely socially inept) apparently. Our humanity is being wiped out of the equation. Sad.
the ALTAR’D STATE in mass is constantly in need of workers but they literally insult everyone that tries to get the job lol
Well the store background is a Buckle (I work at a Buckle) and we are always hiring. Like we love it when someone comes in and asks to fill out an application. We have them fill out a form on an iPad and then an email is sent to them with a link to the application. There are even bonus incentives for referring someone.
this is how it works now. no more going in to meet crew
spread the word about god
I interviewed with a manager who was overly nice. I thought it went great, they were all, "I'm definitely hiring you! I need your energy here! I'll send you the offer tonight!" And then never did. I followed up once and they called me back immediately, repeating all the compliments and promising to send me the offer that night. I'm still here, unemployed. Like wtf. Why bother to feed me all the bullshit? Just say no, easy peazy.
This is so accurate 😭
Yeahhhh, it's just a lot less awkward if you do it online, idk, I'm not a manager
Any place: HIRING WILL ACCEPT ANYONE Me when I apply: *Waits* The place I applied for: “We have not put you for consideration as all positions are full”
I as an employee got a picked up a phone call to our store like this and I told them to apply online and they asked if we were still accepting paper resumes and I said when I was applying I did the online application so they have my info digitally and came in with my resume so I’d recommend asking if they(the place you are applying to) accepts paper resume
The thing about this though is that the vast majority of stores, that are not locally owned will be like this because all their hiring is done online for the most part. You're 80% hired if you get called in for an interview, which is mainly done to make sure the impression that your made with you resume isn't a false one, and that your not an uber weirdo in person. The best you will get is a shift manager promising to give your name and number to the store manager if you walk in when the store manager isn't there. Fill out the online application no matter what you do, cause that's the only way you have even a remote chance of getting an interview.
Many times it works best if you fill out applications first and then reach out to make a connection, whether in person or online. That way if they are someone who can help, they can contact the talent acquisition team to let them know to find your application in the system and move it forward. If the application is done after you reach out, and it isn’t already in there for them to pull up quickly, by the time you’ve applied, too much time and hundreds of emails have gone by and your recommendation is buried.
It's just not the same anymore almost everything is about 9nline now .. it's kinda sad
The best is when you sign up on indeed and they send you all these fucking jobs that you're not even qualified for or have no experience and they're refusing to train you.😂😂😂
Wow. Damn sakes, I thought I was the only one having these issues. 🤦♀️
2021 job market says what?
"I wanted to work for you?" "No thanks!" 😂😂😂
Bro deadass. Like theres a sign at hot topic back in 2018 that said now hiring. I was 18 and i knew the manager personally and so i walked in and asked the cashier lady. Mind u aint nobody there. Bitch said we are not hiring right now u can leave. I was like bro where's (manager name) i know him and he wants to talk to me. She said sorry he isnt here u can go. Like this bitch was really tryna get me to leave. I said alrighty thank you. Next thing u know i get the call from him saying dood where were u i was waiting. I told him what happened and he fired her for horrible customer service. Cuz u cant just be telling people to leave for no fuckin reason. Did i end up working there? No. I got a call a day before from another job that pays more.
If that's how they talk to you, it's probably better not to work for em 😬
This has literally happened to be before cause I wasn’t used to filling out applications online
Wrong people aren't working not hiring
Growing up I was always taught to go make a good 1st impression on the hiring manager in person to get a job. Now it seems like if you try that, you just look like a weirdo. The best way (I found) is to apply online and then come into the store physically the next day to make a good 1st impression and stand out. That is how I did it for my 1st job and I got hired the same day.
I mean if it says apply online then apply online?
I say a sign on the window saying they were hiring for a sales assistant position at bendon body and to come in for a chat and to drop your resume off only to be told to fill out the application as everything is done online now and they don’t accept paper copies of resumes. Why put up a misleading sign then?.
Bruh don’t work in that kinda environment, if the manager isn’t even willing to make a personal connection with you walk out.
i applied to a culver's and taco johns called multiple times and went to the store never got a word
"No thanks" 😂😂😂
I had that happen on multiple occasions and it was so embarrassing cause I’m very shy so even building up the courage to ask and a manager not even taking the time just made it feel so shitty.
This place said they urgently needed employees and my parents made me full out a application online and when I got their for my interview I got 2 weird looks from other employees and the manger was kinda rude to me and was like🧍♀️oh nah screw this
As someone who worked in a candy store and had people come in constantly to apply. We don’t care. Like ask to see our manager and she can help you 😂😂
I can’t tell who is supposed to be the Karen
Majority of the time chain shop managers don’t even look through applications at all because it goes above them to area managers. In the Uk you can’t even leave a CV in a shop cause of data protection??? Filling in a physical application in a shop that’ll take like 30 minutes isn’t gonna give a good impression to anyone that works there as you’re eating into their work day for no reason. This video is so entitled hahahaha
This is so spot on!!! I'm retired now, thank god!
APPLICATIONS ARE ALMOST EXTINCT !!! BELLA MIA !!!
This is how I got my old job at Olive Garden. They get so many applications that you might get passed over. I made my way Dow there and was hired on the spot after a five minute conversation
Hi !! As someone who has worked retail since they were 18 please ALWAYS APPLY ONLINE. Most retail companies (not boutiques or small businesses) have a questionnaire on the application that basically will tell them whether you're a good fit for them and YES they will call you if positions are still open. Even though in the video she makes the manager come off kinda rude sometimes I've seen people coming in at THE WORST moments asking for a "hiring manager" and they will basically ask for your name and number ,tell you to apply online ,and then tell you to have a nice day." And I promise that if it's busy they will forget about you. Work on having a great resume and really filling out applications well so you are more desirable. And no it's not mean if you never get a call. It just means this particular store wasn't for you. Also never be afraid to get a recommendation from a friend ! Especially if you really think you can do the job well. During holiday seasons a lot of places rather hiring their employees family and friends for seasonal work then look for all new employees!
This is 100% they always make u feel less than
Quick tip: don't ask general shift workers. Even if they are aware the store is hiring (which 9/10 they don't, like me), they won't have the information needed for applications and interviews. Always ask for the manager, or manager on duty (or someone working in the office portion). Minimum wage workers are told jack shit by their managers lol
Okay I get why people think talking to the manager is always the best way to go, but realistically it's not. If you are in a smaller establishment then yes talk to the manager. If it is a big company (for example Walmart) dont waste your time. So I currently work for Walmart and I always tell people, never speak to a manager, here's why: When you apply on Walmart.ca the application doesnt automatically go to the store you want to work for. It goes to a third party company who goes through a list of prerequisites and determines if you would be a good fit. They then pass your applications on to the store, while simultaneously sending you an email to the person being interviewed. The first time a maneger will even see your application is when you are at the interview. And given how many applicants come through every single day (literally thousands) you will not be remembered.
Managers keeping incompetent employees with zero customer service skills🤦🏻♀️
This happened to me
If you ever get a job in 2021 from now on know this : be polite but do not give a single fuck, do it for your own interest because nobody cares about you, and no you will not get promoted or get s raise, so dont give a damn
I HATE THIS ONLINE APPLICATIONS- ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS FOR IN-PERSON JOB POSITIONS... like retailing or sumthin
When you dye your hair too much, it destroys it slowly
It's a retail job just do it online I don't think they ever turn anyone away unless you fail a drug test or something is seriously wrong.
My parents giving me instructions on how to get a job when I was 16...
Karen's new way to get the manager
im sorry lmao managers never tell us anything
The amount of times I've seen a different colour in this girl's hair is almost kinda impressive
Left colored hair karen lol
Every store I’ve tried to do this at has been dismissive and then more people tell me to do this and it’s like uhhhhhhh
Man i hate how everything is online these days
This is facts
I've done this before I've even walked into car dealership with snobs looking up and down at me. Idc I'll work . No matter what type of job it is.
Have y’all noticed that she flipped the name tag from Sam to mas
Yeah this actually has been my expirence. Tried to apply to places nearby (Walgreens, burgerking, diner,) and I prefer paper applications because for some God damn reason the sites are always down or broken or messed up for online applications. These places got signs all over saying hiring and the workers just go "uhhhhh" and sometimes even the MANAGERS are like "idk what to do-"
I just apply online it’s quicker when they have time to look they will normally they are pretty busy especially if you come at rush hour
Bruh these are the people that come to get a job for Starbucks 😶🌫️😶🌫️ getting a job isnt the way it used to be anymore. Everything is online and no one cares about first impressions of if you’re an axe murderer or something. Seeing that commitment to come meet the hiring manager used to be a great thing for making it look like you’re the most capable person to hire… it sucks. And if they don’t like your online app, then they don’t like you.
Thank you for allowing all of my comments to be deleted if you didn't do it yourself.
The scenario that played in my head when my old fashioned parents wanted me to just “go in and ask for a job application, it’ll look really good for you to come in person!” 😅
I'm currently in the process of getting my working papers from my school counselor but like honestly I don't really know why I'm trying.. I'm a very socially awkward (I'm not just saying that either) teenager who looks lost like a deer in headlights all the time. I doubt I'd be good in retail but that's most likely the majority of the jobs I could have at my age. It sucks because I want to do good and get experience.. My parents aren't pressuring me to get a job I just want one but it just doesn't look very easy for me. >
I was 17 and wanted to work at this clothing store at the mall. Just teen clothes . A wannabe forever 21. I had to fill out a 2 page personality test and they told me they had to check my credit. I was 17 and didnt have any credit at all. I told them that and they told me that I seemed like a nice kid but I had to have good or excellent credit to work there. To sell threadbare cotton tees and cutoff Jean shorts ..
And then my parents think it's me who doesn't want to work.
I actually once came to a store like this and this situation was a complete copy of this video, and that was the last time I tried applying for a job at store and instead finished course to get a better job lmao.
Gurl! Spot on👌
I tried applying to DQ and the girl said to wait for Antonio and I waited for like 10 minutes and he never showed up
Meanwhile your boomer parents are telling you to walk into every place and ask for an application and drop off a resume😂
Everywhere is hiring
She dyes her hair alot
Her hair always looks so friggin awesome 🤩
I come here to look at her hair and makeup and outfits
Meanwhile they’re complaining they’re understaffed. Make up your mind, you want more help or not?
