So I took a job in a big chain fast food joint just to have a little bit of money coming in to help my family. I worked there for a total of 3 days. Now my pride is not too big for a fast food job. A big world wide company was my very first and only job for 15 years. And I started as crew and worked my way up to where I was and made really good money. But it was taking over my life and getting between my marriage because of how much time I was... see more

As I look at the length of time I've stayed at these jobs I see that its 2 months here or 3 months there or 6 months there (if accurate). I believe this is the reason Im not getting any call backs. I hate listing the jobs where I only stayed a few months. Its embarrassing. I even fill like not even applying anywhere. What's the use? How can I make MY resume still stand out? How can I fill in the application if I was terminated or quit?

It’s been a little over 3 months since leaving my previous employer. I left for various reasons, primarily because I refuse to work in a verbally abusive atmosphere where I had been threatened and accosted by another coworker (for which there was no recourse because HR was non existent). I have submitted applications EVERY single day and not gotten a single response. Not even an automated email saying they’ve decided to move forward with other... see more
I left my job last month after my GM screwed me out of $1600 in commissions in ONE day. I had some capital saved up to last a few months. I've applied at multiple jobs and had a few interviews that didnt go anywhere. I'm switching career fields, so I understand. I've been in leadership positions in almost EVERY job I've had. So, when I interviewed today for a night super spot (local manufacturing plant that pays decent) I was pretty excited... see more
