Thanks WDNR. I needed a day off. Most people in HR departments either aren't in on fridays or don't care about anything that happens on friday... so it's sheetrock day for me.

I guess if you get really, REALLY bored you could scan it... but I've actually had alot of compliments on my resume. (just apparently not enough to actually call me back)...

I know that Target is actively telling prospective employers that I was fired for "attendance" (I had my wife call posing as an HR rep from the bank to get a reference). They are not elaborating on that, and most companies just assume that I was never there. There are some companies I've applied at that won't even consider you if you have been fired. Goodyear won't look at your application for 7 YEARS after you've been fired... Del Monte Foods has a 3 year policy. What sucks is that I can't even get in the damned door to make my case to half the people I wouldn't mind working for.

this sounds like when you compliment someone on their personality...basically means you wouldn't touch them with someone else's junk.

13 how long did you work at Target? Sorry, didn't see that in previous threads.

If it was under a year, I say take it off your resume and say you were a 'consultant' in the electronics field.

If they question say that you did a lot of online consulting and home repair and maybe have some buddies ready for a phone call or two.

May sound dumb, but it's better than having to say you were fired!

Oh sheet, no luck then!

Have you thought about large companies like Siemens?

I have a buddy who has a 2 years associates degree from a school I've never heard of and pulls down $100k fixing MRI/CAT/XRay machines.

I've got applications in to KDOT, and 3 other state positions. The State just moves so DAMNED slow. I think I had them in over 2 months ago.

I've constantly thought I would love to be a Carrier for USPS. Plenty of exercise, being outdoors... but the only chances I've seen to apply were the scam artists trying to sell you information on how to apply.

I guess the most hope I have right now is Channel 27. I talked to all the TV stations in town, and they are the only ones that even think they might possibly have a position open soon.

Whats sad is that I'm pretty sure I sent that application in to stormont over 3 months ago.

I've been sifting through the State of Kansas' job link looking at the over 1800 jobs they have posted... so far the only "Major" company I've found is IBM. They are looking for Siebel installers... but the requirements are like a 10 year doctorates in Siebel infrastructure...

I also applied to their printer tech and IT generalist positions... nothing.

*sigh*

Car = 26 miles per gallon

Truck = 16 miles per gallon

Gas = 3.31 per gallon

KC = 60 miles x 2 x 5

600 miles a week.

car = 23 gallons of gas = $76.38 x4 = $305.52 a month

truck = 37.5 gallons of gas = $124.12 x4 = $496.48 a month

+ K-tag + food

= I can take a job in topeka for a hell of a lot less per hour and still come out ahead.

(and the fact that I refuse to have a payment for gas in a month that would equal a car payment)

I'm sure a lot of the elitists on here will laugh at this, but have you considered driving a truck? Plenty of jobs available, pay is anywhere from $40,000 to $150,000 a year(depending on where you drive and what you haul) and you get a lot of time to think and listen to the radio. There are a lot of negatives to this as well, such as being gone from home, eating poorly, and listening to a bunch of dumbass truckers when you have to stop at a truckstop. I used to do this, so I know. I have also kept my Commercial Drivers License in case I really need a job someday. I never thought I would end up driving a truck, but I needed a job and the pay was good. Just another story I can tell my grandkids.

The economy is so bad here in Michigan, folks are moving from Michigan to Kansas. Michigans unemployment rate is darn near double the national average. And the county I live in is damn near double the state average.

They forget to tell Michigan the recession was over.

I've done the same thing with waiting tables. Unfortunately this last time, I found a place where I make more than I did when I was a prisoner in cubicle land.
