Default So..I Got my First Job Interview..

This Saturday..It's with the Vector company. They sell sporting goods apparently. It's supposed to be a summer job, but they told me I can keep working in the fall if I want. Base pay is 13 bucks an hour. I hope I get it.

How was your first job interview?

First, don't do it. Vector is basically door to door shit. Second, 13 an hour sounds good, but you also have to take a cut from commissions.

My friend worked for Vector a couple summers ago. He went door to door selling knives.

My first job interview was fine, but I pretty much had the job already and it was mostly just smalltalk. I wish they stayed that way. Now most of the time I'm interviewed by 2 or 3 people.

I think this Vector is different. They said they sell household goods and sporting goods. Nothing about knives. I know they're Vector hockey goods..I've seen them...But if it's just selling knives, I'll pass.

Edit: Wtf..After doing some research it is all about knives...You have to pay to buy the knives yourself..Don't get paid for any training..wtf..Hell no.

Ya it's pretty shit work selling knives. Although he still gets some money from them every once in a while when a customer he introduced to the company buys something. He only did it for a couple weeks though because he hated calling random people to sell stuff.

I almost applied to work for them this summer but decided not to be so desperate and got a job somewhere else for the summer instead.

Man I was stoked for a job and when I went to KFC and they called me back, I was like damn I'm about to get a job. Than I seen something that burned in my brain for years to come. I seen a boy, come out of the kitchen dressed in flour and sweating like a slave, by time the manager came to interview me, I had made up in my mind that I wasn't going to do this shit, even it was just for the summer. 9.00 a hour at 16 would've been awesome, but "Flour Boy" fucked it all up.

Door to door blows. Some cats are good at it and can pull some bank doing it. Personally, I refuse that kinda shit.

Interviews...they're cake. Pretend like you're a mid to lower level rookie at the combine being interviewed by the coach and GM of your favorite NFL team.

Talk about team work. Talk about how much you like and appreciate criticism because it helps you get better at what you do. Talk about how you like uniformity because then everyone's on the same page and can function together as a unit.

If they say "Why should I hire you," tell them that you're a hard worker, eager to learn, excited by challenge and hungry to do well. Tell them "I want to have a job where I can go home knowing I've had a positive effect on the bottom line."

Eye contact is crucial. Stare those MFers down. Don't avert your eyes. Be casual with them. Speak formally, but use cadence and tone like you're breaking something down for one of your boys.

Interviews are cake. Play it like that and once you've scored an interview for a gig you actually want, you'll do well. If it's a 35+ year old lady who is interviewing you, she'll probably offer you the gig on the spot if you pull it off.

Go get 'em, Tiger.

Late.

At the time I went for an interview I had a job coach with me because I joined a work training program when I was in school,the job was at Kragen Auto Parts and being part of the program I had to 100 hours until the manager would decide if he would hire me or not which he eventually did not.

Then after that I worked at the work training facility where I and a few other kids my age worked on an assembly line type thing,we just put products together and boxed them up and that was only for the summer but I liked it better than Kragen.

After that was done I applied at the store where I'm currently at now,I think that interview went well and that same day I went to an interview at Toys R Us,and I'm actually glad I didn't get that job.

Sorry to bore everyone with my stories...

Good luck One and Spear

When I went to my "interview", she told me if I could work every Saturday I had the job. I was basically already hired.

My first job was stock boy at Loehmans. I think that's how you spell it. It was a shitty discount womens clothing store and I hated it. But mostly we just fucked around in the stock room as piles and piles of clothes came down this line. I only worked there because I had some friends already there and it was easy to get. I only lasted 2 months I think, then I got a job at a game store. It was for christmas help, and they wanted me to stay after, and I said fine, but I'm still going to SD for a month. They were cool though. My job before any of that though was building curcuit boards and electronics shit for my parents company. I did that since I was like 13. That was kickass because they paid me really well. Actually, both my sisters and my brother still do work for them. I did when I was working at home too. I don't know why I don't just work for them full time...
