Job Application frustrations

Hi Everyone,
I know what some of you are going through because I graduated from business school in Novermber of 2017 and been on the job hunt and put my experience too and you only get called by sales jobs and stuff. They want to pay peanuts and some companies don't bother setting up an interview or even respond back. I feel like the job market here sucks even though there are so many available. Don't understand why they are not even trying…

Dang, that's hard to deal with Sohini G I am sorry your job search is being so frustrating. I've been there, but usually that…

Needing Help

So, I had a great phone interview today, and I think I can do the commute. I'm a litle apprehensive about the testing, as they are asking for Excel (i'm usually an expert), but have issues with v-lookups. How can I avert my diversion to v-lookups? I would love to get some insight, and maybe talk with someone regarding my anxieties.

Really right on!

PMP/CAPM Exam Suggestions

Would others who have taken the exam add your advice, please?

Job Exam Not What It Was In Job Description

Took an online exam the beginning of this week for a job with a large financial institution. The exam was suppose to be for Base and Advanced SAS. For those that program in SAS you know that it's not a small subject. I have received many calls from recruiters for this job. When I took the exam it was SAS IML. The title of the exam even said SAS 9.3. IML is not Base or Advanced SAS but another SAS product that must be purchased separately…

Hey Kirk Doxtader , sorry to hear about your recent pre-employment test experience. I can understand how a recruiter or hiring…

My interview at #Walgreens was...

It began with applying on-line, I received a call to come into the store I applied for (you can choose multiple locations when you apply on-line) and was asked to complete a 20 to 30 min set of aptitude tests ranging from cash handling to what would you do in this situation if you were approached by various customers with different needs etc. Once I completed the tests I was given a brief walk thru of the store layout and was told after the…

OPAC Testing

Today, I drove 30 miles through the mountains to take the OPAC test for a PT Court Clerk position. The subjects were, Alpha Filing, Basic Math, Keyboarding, Numeric Filing and Proofreading. I did very well on 3 of the subjects, mediocre on 1 and horrible on the last. I am not going to let this discourage me, and although I may not make it to the next level (the face to face interview) this time. I will come back stronger knowing what to…

Wanting to work for Amazon, but can't find a Chicago location

Hi, Matt. I'm having trouble finding an Amazon location in the Chicago area. I've taken the assessment test and passed. They've given me an appointment but I'm not going to be able to keep it because it's in Joliet and that's going to be a problem for me. I really want the job with Amazon but it wouldn't be fair to waste their time nor mine because it's going to be a problem getting there and back home for me due to my having no means of…
