I live in a small town with not that many people or places to get jobs. so i went to apply for a job at our local supermarket, which many kids my age do, i put in a application and rang to ask them if i could get some work, they said they haven't got any work as they already have to much staff. this was after my mates who both work there say go for it cause they are looking for people.

I didn't really think much of it, and realized that it was probably cause of my long hair, which i didn't really wanna get cut at the time. so then, about 6 months later after i cut my hair and cleaned myself up i went down and put in another application, this time going straight to them and asking for some work, in which case they said they have to many people and they'll call me if any positions need to be filled, so i thought ok then thats fair enough they have to much people i doesn't matter i'll try next time. after about 2 months with no call, my mum came to me today and told me that they are putting heaps of people on and i should ring again ask them for work. so i rang up, putting on the most well mannered voice and asked for a job, the same guy who everyone tells me to go to says he isn't in charge of the employing, bull**** he isn't. so i told him my application is in and asked if i should ring again on monday, and before i could even finish my sentence he hangs up on me. so who are they to say to me that there is no work, i'm 16 years old and they are putting on 12-13 year olds who still play with ****ing action figures for godsake, right after i asked for a job.

so i ask you UG why the **** can't i get a goddamn job

P.S there is no we're else to go in this ****ty ****ing town, so i kinda have no other choice

EDIT: there should really be a purpose to this rant, so what ridiculous things have the people of UG got turned down from?

Well, I don't think they can hire you if you're invisible...


But maybe the guy there is just an asshole?

I got turned down by Tescos and Budgens garage, and yet last week I got a job at an insurance company. So I really don't know what the process is, but just keep looking man and something is sure to come up.

there is no fear in this heart.

Working at a supermarket sucks anyway, I did it for a month. Crooked bastards!

Best job I ever had was at a lumberyard. Good pay considering I was still in high school and I had a great manager. Me and my coworkers had a lot of fun in that warehouse.

What I hate now is that just about any chain store I go to looking for temporary work you have to apply online- Target, Sports Authority, Best Buy, Home Depot etc and they all have these stupid quizzes that have nothing to do with the actual work, they're like personality tests. Maybe I'm failing those damn quizzes because I never got a response from any place I applied to online, when I'm 100% sure that any of those places would have taken me if I could have just seen somebody in the store to ask for a job.

The most irritating failure to get a job was at Guitar Center. They had openings at the accessories counter and I asked in-store for a job and all the workers (who I've gotten to know pretty well) are like yeah sure, but you have to apply online. I did so and never got a response, went in a few weeks later and I was rung up by the guy that got the job. He was an idiot who had no business even being in a music store. If I didn't have to go through that online application bull**** I'd have an enjoyable job at Guitar Center, and Guitar Center would have a competent employee at the accessories counter.

I can't get a job.
Most places it's silly for me to look because I'd be asked to remove my piercings.

Will I? No.
No I will not.

So I have to be patient

A place isn't just going to give you a ****ing job just because you want it. If you want a job you need to go to EVERY place in your town, hiring or not, and put in an application. That what I've always done and I've never had a hard time.

Just got a job tossing salads for 8 bucks an hour. Not the sexual way, the lettuce way.

It's not fair to say 'oh you look like that therefore can't work here' as if the job would be done any less well than by someone who looked 'normal'.

Bah humbug.

You probably can't get a job because of

a) your attitude
b) your personal appearance
c) your immaturity
d) being a small town it could even be your reputation

no-ones going to hire an attitude ridden, scruffy looking, immature, inexperienced kid. Employment isn't a right, kiddo.

set fire to the place. or kill off a few employees to make room for yourself (both ways I've found to be handy in finding a job).

you have to apply like at least once a week. be persistent. force them to shut you up and hire you.

I agree. Id rather get paid doing something I dont really like than sit at home doing nothing and making squat.
Just apply EVERYWHERE that you are interested in and go with the company/chain you like the most.

You don't.

This is why you have to drop any kind of attitude and be willing to suck a blind vicars **** to get that first job and the experience that comes along with it.

Your goatee makes you look like a homeless drunk. I wouldn't wanna be served by a homeless drunk. Therefore, I would not want to hire someone who looks like one.

You could always try the prostitution business.

There's still a market for that, even in small towns. Actually, especially in small towns.

We sort of had the same situation here.... Then Menard's came.

Just another thing to add to the list of why I worship Menard's...

1. They sell Marshmallow Matey's there.
2. During the Grand Opening, the workers will stop doing their job and run off to find you balloons.
3. They save the kiddies from selling their bodies for sex.

All hail Menard's... The best thing to happen to my town since K-Mart shut down.
