I worked at Pizza Hut back in 1975, and I was told by my manager, that I was being let go, because I was to young to serve beer. I was 19 yrs 8 months old at the time, my manager failed to tell me this at time of job interview. I loved baking pizza for the company it was lots of fun. But being let go because my District Manager came into the manager's office and she told her I had to be let go, still haunts me to this day. I never did forgive... see more

Hey everyone, last week was my first accident in 8 years of driving and I feel like such an idiot. I was finishing up my last load of the day and the dispatcher had me change to a 53' and pick up from a yard I've never been to. I tried to turn around and misjudged the amount of room I needed to turn with my tandem placement. I dented another drivers exhaust stack and backed into a utility pole.

I told my supervisor obviously he was not happy... see more

First of all, if you have a CDL and this is the only accident you've had in eight years, I wouldn't worry about it... 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?

Was the length of employment because of working through a temporary agency or did you leave at will?
