Don’t assume

I begin work at Walmart tomorrow. My substitute teacher aide job isn’t a reliable source of income, so I’ve been looking for something more consistent for almost as long as I’ve had it. Having an irregular job is better than being unemployed, but most things are.

I was actually shocked how easily Walmart hired me. My local branch had a recruiting drive, I showed up for an interview, they asked if I’d be ok with a stocking job, I said yes and that was all. I’m in dire need of experience because many prospective employers assume that lack of paid experience = not worth an interview. All other retail places turned me down, as did jobs I actually wanted like library ones.

Now I can grow my bank account and get some quality experience for later applications.

  2. People aren’t born with experience, that comes to getting hired to gain it! Good luck at your new job tomorrow!

    Congrats…my local Walmart sees my PhD and throws it out. A job is a job and any job is a good job if its legal.
