i have a position to fill in my library. it's a starter job, shelving books, picking up, collecting the mail, that sort of thing.
i found out about it very late last week, so early this week, we put up signs inviting people to fill out applications. i've been very clear that i have to have all applications in by today, as i'm doing interviews next week.
this afternoon, a woman asked me for an application. i have never been spoken to so rudely by someone hoping to be hired for a job. and trust me, this woman must know better. she's at least my age.
here's a note: don't be rude to the person who is going to be doing the hiring! i'm the person making the decision as to who i am going to interview. when you act as if you are doing me a "favor" by filling out the application, i put your's on the bottom of the pile. i have one position. i have about twenty applications. i plan on doing no more than five interviews. tell me again, what are your chances of getting an interview?
