For the first part:
1. No I've never known anyone in any of the jobs I've worked at since I was 18. Always got there on my own and my own work experience. Yes, I've kept most of my jobs for at least a year or more. 3. I'm actually getting training to be assistant manager of my department right now. Hopefully working it up the ladder. 4. The job is paying me what the job is worth. The longer I stay there the more I will get. You will never step foot into a job (espically with no work experience) and expect to get a huge hr wage. Isn't gonna happen.
And yes, you should be fired for all those above reasons.
Jobs most of the time tell people they are "overqualified" because most of the time someone who has a college degree instantally thinks they should be paid more. Even in a place where it's just a plain old labor intensive job that doesn't need a degree, they will proabably pick the person who doesn't have one because they can start them out at a lower wage. And depending on the job you have to work around THIER sechdule. Not the other way around. If you go into retail and expect to have whatever day off you want during the christmas season you're out of your mind. They won't hire someone who is that picky over what days they wanna work. And if you "must have a computer" to check job emails there a little free place a libary that lets you use them for free. Easy solution there.
You I still consider a lucky man like my uncle.
My cousin couldn't even find a job until she hit 23 (she works at a bar at the airport,) and I didn't find one until I hit 21-22. My uncle funny enough had a job paying about 5-10k per month (ten years ago,) and lost it because he kept having drunk wild sexy parties after check day.
People don't think like you and me and Sent and Rondo. Most people are generally lazy, (unless it matter to their morals/personality/standards,) and do not do things outside of what is the "min. effort," feel that the world or humanity owes them something (ha,) or give up after a somewhat trying exertion and take the easy way out. I know you heard of the person who was looking for work for 10+ years and couldn't find a job during Bush/Obama's terms. So that's why I consider you lucky; most people can't keep jobs or find them as easy as you did, especially if I go by the fact that you worked some of them for a year and found another job right away.
For the second part:
Library isn't that great here in Chicago:
-You can't print without paying 15-30 cents per page depending
-If you owe anything you can't use the computers period
-If you use the computers AFTER 1pm, expect overflow due to high school kids checking facebooks. Especially express computers. (WELL in my area. If you go downtown expect people looking at porn and this.)
My job in question emails random hours; 6am to sometimes 11pm due to call offs because sometimes we have to work at 4am in the morning. We do have computer centers (which are free,) but for some reason our state is closing them down.
So for jobs like this, it's better to just have a computer than to think outside the box and go to a free library or a paying cafe. I'm grateful for a ocmputer; less perverts except for myself.
Well I worked in retail and it really depends on different factors:
1) If you are seasonal, part time, or full time.
2)What position you are in.
Managers are over everyone but the GM and the SM. Full time get more off days, paid off days, and priority than seasonal and part time in terms of lay offs, etc. unless they do something really bad. Part time are over seasonal.
I remember a time period in my last job at BR that everyone
who worked full time was off before and during the holidays (two weeks to a month,) and it was only the part time as well as seasonal workers. It was a problem because we had to have our GM work stock checks. It wasn't a black out day mind you. Our manager (who we only have one in our position,) was also gone so we didn't have a manager for a while either, (outside of the GM.)
But I'm not saying this isn't all retail. This is from what I seen in Gap/Banana republic, so I have no idea if Macy's or any place else suffers from this. So my view is slightly one linear.
Huh? Do you have a citation about people with degrees that think that they are "holy thou you?" when applying for a job and think they deserve more money? I never heard of this. I heard of people thinking this period
because of the "yeah I'm better than anyone else because only my opinion/life matters," but not a specific catagory of people. I know jobs have told some of my past co workers that they were over qualified for having like 10+ experience trying to work at the Gap or BK.
