Searching For A Job

Good Essays
Searching for a job could be considered as a pretty easy or extremely difficult task to do.
Well it’s way more hard when you’re sixteen, still in high school, and have no other job experience. That was me, and let 's just say that it was a long and hard thing to do. On the contrary I do have a job now, and through this experience I’ve learned multiple things that’ll help me with my life out in the real world. Two years prior, to me having a job today, is when I started thinking about getting a job.
I had heard that some markets like Albertsons hire kids at fourteen to help with bagging customers groceries. However, I couldn’t find any job openings, and no other place would hire me since I was fourteen. I told myself there was nothing

I had only stared at them when they had asked me a question, and I was answering it. Their questions were exactly like those that my dad had asked me. “Tell me about yourself” and “Why do you wanna work here?”

I answered all their questions with a stutter or a umm every five minutes. In addition, one of the guys was yawning constantly; I think it was to see if I’d get more nervous...which I did. When the interview was coming to an end I was kinda glad it did, but at the same time disappointed because I knew how terrible it had went.
As days passed I wasn 't surprised at all that they had not called back because my interview had gone completely terrible. That didn’t amend for the fact that was self-esteem had dropped though. However, I also felt pretty good because i still had another chance. I had also applied at Chick-Fil-A, and they had also replied around the same time Chipotle did, so I was ready for another interview. This time I would prepare myself a little more, and I also had a good idea of the questions they might ask me. I was gonna be ready for this

Well that didn 't happen, she got there before I did and when i was waiting for my interview I had overheard one of the interviewers say “We’d like to offer you the job here”. At that moment I knew that there was no reason for me to be there, but they still interviewed me. They only asked me two questions, and then said “We’ll go ahead and talk it over and then call you if we have a spot”. I knew that just a professional way for saying no. After that interview I was literally done with looking for a job and decided to focus on getting my license instead, but my dad wasn’t done with helping me out that easily.
A couple months later, after getting my license, my dad had told me about a job opening at a Cinnabon that was opening in Superstition Mall. I didn’t want to go through the whole trouble for a job that I wouldn’t get, plus, it’s like a thirty minute drive, so I said I’ll pass.
My dad wasn’t going to argue with me though, so he told me just do this last one, and if it doesn 't work out then no harm done. I then said okay fine this last

    I am hoping to have a permeant job like that one in the future. A few months after I started taking over responsibilities, my supervisor returned from his leave of absence. Our partnering company did not think he was an effective supervisor and no longer wanted him to be a part of the project, therefore, he was reassigned. I assumed they would want to replace him, but a few weeks after his return, my regional manager informed me they were not planning on it and wanted to keep things as they are. By that point, I was basically doing the job by myself, my co-worker’s responsibilities only took a few minutes every week and I was doing management responsibilities for hours each…
