  • Well, THAT was a waste of time, gas, and eager anticipation.

    A friend had told me last weekend, I think it was, about Sprouts opening a store in the old Albertson’s space at Hulen and 820.  On Monday I drove out there and saw a big sign posted, advising that applications may be made online, or will be accepted Dec. 10 and 11, from 8-5 on the Friday and 8-2 on the Saturday.

    ISTM it’s preferable to get in front of people, so I decided to go this morning, resume in hand.

    To be greeted at the door by a man clearly stationed there to provide an unwelcome piece of information:  one is obligated to apply online first, then one is called for an interview, and so far over 4000 applications have been received online with 600 interviews having been set up.

    IOW, you’re too late.  He doubted anyone applying now will receive an interview.

    Not only was I nonplussed and depressed to learn this, but I deeply felt for the other people who were showing up, obviously having thought along the same lines as I.

    Doggone it, the sign very clearly said that applications would be accepted today and tomorrow at that location and during specified hours!  I think that really stinks, to publicly state such information then renege on it.

    Stupid how much it affected me.  Found myself struggling with tears as I drove back home.  I’d really hoped I’d have a good shot at a job there, if only I could get in front of someone.

    Boo.  And hoo.

    Time to eat chocolate.   whatevah

  • Look at how the Lord has provided you with insurance of a place to live, with your mom. When the right job comes along, Anne, it will be yours. In the meantime, you are doing all you faithfully can.

    But I have to say, that WAS a piece of work, that was. Somebody should be reprimanded for that. NOT good PR for an imcoming company.

  • Have you thought about an office position at a local college or university? Or a Substitute in the offices for FW ISD? That would be a great way tog et your foot in the door, and you would be in-line for a full time position when one comes available!
