The vague instructions I got from my dad were come back home before the football game.
Before I went I made a list of all the places on the mall website that said to apply in person. When I was assessing it I called it my “Holiday Hit List” it’s how I came up with the name for this blog entry.
The first interview I went to went really well. The lady seemed warm and inviting.
After the interview I had an hour to spare until my next one. I browsed the mall. And looked for places that were hiring. I even caught a few that were not on my list. I think I applied to 5 places. You know what I find annoying? When there are no people in some shop so the workers stand outside and holler at you. I’m embarrassed for you. Doing that makes me not want to shop at your store even more.
When I got the phone call for what to do the day of the interview last week. It said to go to the upper level and ask for somebody or do something I forget. Anyway they blocked the entrance with racks and shit. The Forever xxi people were so rude! No wonder you are going out of business. When I said “job interview” they changed their mood. And they said the deadly words “group interview”. If it sucks I’ll just leave. I’ve got other places to apply to. Still never left a job interview. That’s something I want to have the courage to do. I’m bored, tired and hungry. I’ll wait 15 minutes. Late for the interview themselves. So reflects poorly on them. Barely got acknowledgement at the 14 minute mark. What a waste! They don’t know what they are doing. The whole thing was a joke. I remember I interviewed for them before when they opened up one closer to me. But I think they were partner/individual interviews. I think they were running late for that interview too. They were so unorganized. They had us fill out a paper application after filling out an online one. I filled it out quickly since I had filled out 5 other applications within the past hour. They kept saying about how they were so successful and that everybody wants to shop there and they move a lot of clothes and merchandise. Stop pretending you are not in financial trouble. When they were saying this I wanted to laugh to badly. The thing was long and pointless.
I applied to a few other places after that interview. Including one of those geeky stores that sells overpriced figures of comic book characters and bootleg Sailor Moon stuff. I think I could work there.
It wasn’t a complete waste of a trip I bought some things I wanted. I wanted an open stock green high lighter. I wanted to buy some of those shrimp flavored chips. I haven’t eaten those or something like them since about 1990 or 1991? Somewhere around there. The most confusing thing was the stores had now hiring signs, but when you asked all they said was “apply online”. But I applied to 7 places not including the 2 interviews.
On the ride home a bird hit the bus. I never had that happen before in all my years of riding the bus. It was a large bird and made a large thump. I didn’t notice it because I was on the phone complaining to my mom about the bad interview.
And I did come back before the football game.
