well, cv went to my mates shift manager, then i phoned him for a chat the following tuesday morning, he seems like a good bloke and the chat was very positive, we both know alot of the same people and he lives about 500metres from me! not long after i got off the phone i got a txt off my mate saying he heard his manager had been chatting to me and that he'd said to him, seems like a good bloke etc we'll have him in for an interview at some point.
that was about 2 weeks ago, since then i helped my mate move house and 2 days later he goes back to start a day shift last sunday, his boss came in and said how did the move go and my mate said no probs coz i had helped him at which point manager said i should have some good news for him soon. i then got a text telling me that, so i'm just waiting at the mo.
basically it's one of those places that recommendation by an employee is a step up to getting in and judging by what i've heard they get a recommendation with a view to employing but then organize an interview with other people who have applied generally, they then make sure they ask numpties in for interview, the idea being "fairness"! meaning they have to be seen to advertise and interview a few people but then they pick me (hopefully), sounds abit ruthless but this way i supppose they maksure they're getting a quality workforce. we all know it goes on, it's nice to know that this time it appears to be working in my favour!
don't blame them for that really, i have never interviewed anyone for my mechnic's job i just ask someone i know is capable and available and say start as soon as you can, i'd quite happily discriminate from smokers etc so how am i any different, you'll always want the best you can get for your workplace.
will let you know more when i know more! cheers for the interest!!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
