Why does Petsmart refuse to interview job applicants, that qualify for the job?
I am 18 years old, and have experience in dealing with animals. I applied at Petsmart 3 times (2 different store locations). The third time I applied, I spoke to the manager of the store. I told him, that I do have experience with animals and I also told him, that I was willing to do the job. This does not make sense, but he refused to give me an interview. I filled out the online application perfectly. I have been turned down for every job, that applied for. An employer isn't going to know how successful I will be, until I'm given a chance.
