I have a great job right now hostessing but I have a bit of a stalker issue so I have to switch.
I recently turned seventeen and I know a lot of places (Earthbound, haha) require you to be eighteen. Is Freebirds' one of those places?
I graduated a year ago with a degree in biology (b.s.). I have been trying to find a job ever since. I live in cleveland, oh and the problem I keep running into is that every job is a sales job. I AM NOT A SALESPERSON!!! I am very smart and a job that does not utilize this will be short lived. I need something that allows me to make decisions and does not involve selling. Going back to school is not an option as I need money and WILL NOT move home to live with my parents. So unless it is something that allows me to go to school part time while working full time, it is not an option. I am very open minded, all I really need is decent pay, bennefits, and the ability to think for myself so I dont get bored and quit.
I am currently working part time in retail, with little room for advancement as the only real position to move into is store management which is a very competitive sales position. My sales numbers are not good at all.
I also work part time teaching at risk 6th graders, but i am not a licensed teacher. I do enjoy the job, but the long hours of a teacher and low pay are most likely not for me.
biology is just a degree, a job with biology is not important or really even anything worth considering. Sales jobs are the only real jobs I find available.
I've just been on a cruise, and I loved the atmospher of the employees. I have always wanted to do something in the travel industry and I already work 6 days straight so working all the time dosnt bother me. I have been at the same job going on 4 years right out of high school,they promoted me to assistant manager within a year and the last 6 months I've been THE manager. so I have great customer service skills, and am wonderfull at planning and orginazation. would it be enough?
I am getting closer trying to get a bs in human resoure..but, what is the diff. between HR management and HR development degrees???
And how much would it pay?
They have treated my badly when i got attacked at work. I'm supposed to be going back tomorrow, but i have been offered another job. What should i do?
I'll be graduating with a bachelor's degree in accounting in December and I'm thinking about applying for a government position.
For those of you who work for the governement, what's your employment experience been like?
this is for a school survey for my stats class on my regression project, please answer!
And also what qualifications I would need, if you know. Thank you
I have been struggling to find a satisfactory answer for that question for quite a long time, but I'm still unsuccessful. When we google: "casting calls" we can find many websites full of information about castings for different small productions.
Apart from them, we have many great and popular shows, for instance the most concerned now, Game of Thrones and Homeland. How can I know that HBO or Showtime plans to make a bigger production? Where can I find information that they are going to make a casting for main roles?
I am not a skilled actor. Unbelievable, isn't it? I know that professionals are informed about this kind of stuff by their agents and agencies. Yet, I'm curious about finding such information by myself, whether it is a website or theater's wall. What I try to emphasize is that I am not looking for pages with castings for extras. It intrigues me whether casting calls for main roles are carefully hidden from amateurs? I realize that it is possible. Yet, I skimmed through the credits, checked who is who and it appears that for some people show like Game of Thrones is their first time in front of a camera.
Basically. Let's assume that a major television network “A” wants to make a show “X” in 2014 and announces casting call for main roles. How can I know it? If you were to search for it, where would you do that? Is there one site that I can be sure of that will post all known bigger and smaller casting or I have to go through many different pages?
Thanks in advance for your help.
I currently have a job and they're going to let me come back after taking two months to travel to Japan. In the meantime, I applied for a position that I really want and after months of waiting, they have finally reached out to me. I didn't plan on taking this trip with my sister until after I applied for the position. I received a call on Weds and did an over the phone interview for about 40 minutes. After the call, I was emailed some assessments to take within 24 hours. I finished those up and received a call back the next day (today) saying that I have done what I needed to do to move on to the next step which is my first of two face to face interviews. The job is at an inbound call center working in the retentions department. It is working directly for a service provider, not a third party. Call centers are all over the place in my area so while finding a job "like" this isn't hard, it is true that this job pays over $16/hour and you should accept the position expecting to make atleast $1500/month in commission. This job is also something that is perfect for my skill set. I have great people skills, am an excellent problem solver, very thorough and am anxious to know my products and boundaries so I'm able to offer things and assist people as efficiently as possible. Beyond this, I recently moved to the state that I'm in and in that process, turned down a similar job in the state that I came from so I am very familiar with this hiring process and know that they are going to love me.
So, here are the details. I am going to have my first interview Monday which should be with someone equivalent to who my direct manager is going to be once I start. Once that one is complete, I should have a second interview about a week later with two people who are above the first person.
My initial plan was that I'd get through the first interview and once I was invited for the second one, I'd then tell the interviewer that I had plans to travel from early May - early July. (Training class lasts 5 weeks and will probably begin around the middle of March or possibly later). So (roughly), I'd have between a week and a month to work there (after training) before taking the next two months off.
The second plan is that I get through the second interview (with the people who are higher up..hence they have more decision making abilities). The main benefit here is that not only have I established my value to the first person but now I have two more people who are interested in me. I would get to the point where I am invited to training and then just come CLEAN. Tell them that I had an opportunity to go somewhere great and help my sister as she goes to Japan to further her education while she is able to teach English to people which will eventually be her profession. She has been there once before and knows a fair amount of Japanese. I have also been studying Japanese rigorously as I am excited for the experience and want to be as ready to communicate as possible and have a strong foundation to build on while I am there. My point for getting into all of this with you here is to let you know that I feel like it's important for them to realize that I really am going there to support my sister and also better myself..atleast culturally. Plus it is just a tremendous opportunity to be able to go somewhere awesome where I'm with someone who knows the language and we both know people there who we will see and have show us around and help us with things. Anyways...
The only other plan would be to call the recruiter tomorrow (Friday) and explain that this is going on and risk never being called by them again.
My thoughts are that I will do the second plan. The way I see it is that there'd be three possible outcomes. One outcome is that they'd simply dismiss me and that's it. The next being that they'd tell me that what I'm doing sounds great and that they'd either consider our interview a success and tell me that I can join the first training class that is open once I come back or maybe even say that it's alright but I'd have to reapply again...and the third possibility is that they start me asap knowing that I'm going.
I am looking for advise, I do not have my mind made up but another thing to say to support this plan is that it seems obvious to me that I can't call the recruiter at this point and talk about these plans (I have no value to them right now). Then, it seems polite to me to say something after the first interview so they don't waste resources on me before the next interview but the truth is, getting to that second one means they've invested a great amount of resources in me (value) PLUS I get to further my value by meeting with the higher-ups and they would have the ability to make a decision.
ANY thoughts are greatly appreciated!
It is good to let me know if I shouldn't get into too much detail about what I'm doing there. I understand they may be upset and not really want to hear too much about how exciting or positive it's going to be since I just let them down so badly.
And I know I spelled planned wrong.
Please, feel free to shoot down any or all of my ideas, I want to hear any and all thoughts.
I'm interested in becoming a park ranger. I'm 36 years young,served in the armed force, sponsored my self through the basic police academy and I'm in very good shape.I don't have a college degree but plan on going to college. Would this be helpful in becoming a park ranger or do I need a college degree? how about my age? Am I too old to become a park ranger?
I am a part-time worker at a local grocery store chain as a customer service clerk/bookkeeper. I work full-time hours (35-40 hrs. a week) but get no benefits whatsoever. My problem is that the head bookkeeper makes the schedule for me and my associates (4 girls in total, including her), which a manager is really supposed to make. I feel she is unfairly making the schedule to cater to her and another associate; causing me to always be the closer on the weekends. I have not had a day off on the weekend in a few months. The head bookkeeper recently just had Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off in one weekend. I am planning to look into old schedules and make a note of all this. Since when do jobs allow full-time employees to pick their own schedule? I have had managers tell people, myself included, that even though we are part-time, we cannot have certain days off. Is it just me, or are things ass-backwards here? Do I have a legit reason to bring this up?
I'm 16 and want to get a job at some sort of chain, however I can't decide which one! My intention is to work for the 3 years I have left of high school and then get promoted to management/assistant management after I'm done with school. But which company is the best? (ie walmart, mcdonalds, etc) which makes the most money and works the best hours? MANAGEMENT. not just the regular employees. Health insurance too! Basically which nation wide chain treats their managers best. Thanks!
I'm stuck between Business Marketing and Psychology. I feel like Business will get me further in todays world, but i have a sort of calling for psychology related stuff.
What kind of questions are they going to ask? How much will a Non-Management position make? What should I say if they ask me what my best qualities are? And how am I suppose to dress? This is actually my first paycheck job thats not under the table. So please help me. Thank you!
I'm going to start college this fall and I am going to attend a job fair for an on campus job. I dont really have any specific job in mind- ill do anything i am capable of doing. So I was just wondering, what do you think I should write under "Objective" on my resume? Something really general, like, "on campus job".......
Something to do with customer service call centers.

I happened have a very bad shopping experience today and I'm all worked up about this. But this is not the first time and I notice it is getting worse and worse. I have decided to:
Return sub-quality products to the store of purchase. From now on, I will save all my recipts for 30 days. If any product does not A) do what it says, or B) breaks within 30 days, I will return it to the store for my money back.
I will no longer tolerate poor customer service. I expect sales people to be A) knowledgeable, B) professional, C) courteous, D) helpful. If I do not receive service that pleases me, I will contact the owner, manager, customer service department, and/or the corporate headquarters of the business.
I want to see change! I want quality products for my hard-earned money! I want to be treated properly by sales professionals! I've had it! But, I can't do it all on my own...Who will join me?...Please...
Yes, in my ranting I almost forgot to say that I have decided to also report exceptional service and products. I have contacted two corporate headquarters today already--one with a complaint and one with raving reviews.
TaxGurl, what you said is so very right. That's why I think we, as consumers, need to let the businesses know. Maybe if enough people do this, they will decide to go ahead and treat their employees better and give them a reason (maybe some incentives) to do their job well. I know from first hand experience that how my employer treats me directly reflects on the quality of my work. Thanks for all comments so far.
