Orientation and Final Interview

Friday, July 25, 2014

Waiting on the job to schedule my orientation :) Waiting sure is a pain but I'm just happy knowing I have a job!

I called Target back since when they called me I was at the ER admitting my uncle in the hospital. I got transferred to the woman who called and left me a voicemail message and she told me they are fully booked for interviews this week and they will call me back next week. I waited for 2 weeks for them to call back and now I have to wait another week! I have never heard of it taking that long to schedule a final interview before. My friend who works at the location I applied to said the manager who does the hiring was off yesterday... perhaps that's why it's taking so long because she keeps leaving/going on vacation in the midst of a hiring spree.

My uncle is home from the hospital! He got back home yesterday afternoon in time to have dinner :) I made a pasta bake with penne pasta, homemade sauce for the most part (ground beef, yellow onions, green bell peppers, roma tomatoes, 3 heirloom tomatoes, minced garlic, and a jar of Ragu), and crumbled up smoked gouda cheese. I baked everything together for about 15-20 minutes and everyone liked it!

    Hiring is super slow. Applied in Sept for job that I have now, interviewed in Dec., found out I had it in Jan. and started in April. Was frustrating, but I love it now that I'm here.

    The culture of being unkind to job applicants surprised me. My DD interviewed in May for a job. They called her back for a final interview of 3 people in mid-May. She waited and hoped and finally gave up because they never called her back to say yes or no. Seven weeks later they called her and offered her a position contingent on a background check. She waited again without word. Finally she was offered another part time job elsewhere and told the full time job she needed an answer. They finally gave her a full offer and a start date for mid August exactly 3 months after the final interview.
    People looking for work have every right to be stressed. Glad you have a firm offer from the other place.
    So glad to hear you uncle is feeling better and is at home again.

    I've been following your job quest. Unfortunately its always like that. Once, I interviewed and found out I got a job in the beginning of November, but didnt actually start until January 7th!
