I moved to more affordable housing in early June and had to quit my job because of it. I’m a full-time college student so I’ve mostly been applying to low-level management positions at fast food restaurants.
it is now mid-july and I’m still unemployed. My entire financial aid refund for this summer semester went to bills.
I’ve been ghosted by so many places I’ve lost count; one place said I had the job once my background check came through but never put me on the schedule despite my follow-ups . I found that position available again on indeed not long ago.
Today I had a job interview. I got there 20 minutes early and let a manager know I was ready when she was. Over an hour later, she still hasn’t come to interview me. Then I hear her leaving a message to another manager on the phone asking them to come in and interview me instead. I get being understaffed and I’m desperate so I gave it a bit more time.
After an hour and a half, I was done. I’m not wasting my day away waiting for an interview for a job that won’t pay a living wage anyway.
I’m so done with this bs system.
