|1304 - CRAP!!!|
Got a call on my cellphone while I was in the shower. Returned it a couple of hours later. It was the Census Bureau offering me a job...but they filled it in the time between when they called me and when I called back.
Crap crap crap. I could really have used that.
Update: They don't just talk to the first guy on the list. They start there. If they don't get them on the phone immediately, then they immediately call the second, and the third, and so on. If the job is filled before the first one called calls back, then the top guy on the list is SOL.
I missed out on a crew leader position because I was in the shower at the wrong time. That sucks.
current mood: crappy
I have missed a job by 2 minutes before. I know...aggravating.
Ah yes, the call list. I worked on call for almost four years and this system can be so painful. Oh course it is useful when you *don't* want to work and you can't afford a black mark on your record. ("Oh, I just missed it? Too bad. Well, there is always tomorrow. Ciao.")
But when you need work, it sucketh mightily.
All my best wishes for the next opportunity
