Got an interview for an entry-level position at Wendy's tomarrow....my first job! Damn I am so nervious! Any tips guys?
I think they would probably settle for 'person'.It's wendys, just go in there and show that you're a normal reasonable person and you'll be a shoein.
Thanks for the advice, and oh I'm 17...frsrblch said:I think they would probably settle for 'person'.
This job will be a life lesson for you. Crappy jobs that barely pay minimum wage are for suckers. There are jobs everywhere, you just need to look around a bit to find something with better pay, more flexible hours, and perhaps be even the slightest bit interesting.
My advice: don't be nervous. There's really no need. If you get the job you will soon learn the value of shopping around a bit while job hunting, and if you don't you're still better off because you're not working at a Wendy's. It's win-win.
If there are any convention centres in your area, they will need lots of new workers for the busy grad season, but it may be too late to catch that wave now. Stay away from anything to do with telephones, unless it's something where people call you. Trust me, they don't appreciate it when you call them. This is all speaking from experience, I've had my fair share of good and bad jobs, but if you choose to work at a fast food joint you will be wanting to throw hot oil at customers by the time the summer ends.
BTW... how old are you? It has a bearing on the kinds of jobs you can get.
No, that wouldn't be an obstacle.Anyways, as long as you don't have down syndrome, you're gonna get the job.
My 15 year old cousin had a construction job, and telemarketing isn't out of anybodies league. There are also lots of service jobs outside of the regular fast food joint that can pay well and be enjoyable. Don't be so quick to limit yourself.Mogwai said:Fast food will hire anyone so long as they need the help, however act like a idiot and you are out the door, cooperate jobs are picky, construction worker is out of your league, receptionist, or telemarketer is prolly out of your league.
Fast food is prolly your only option, however if you have fun with the job, it will be fun, but do it just for the money and the hours will draaaaaag by.
