Is Amazon really hiring?

Imagine you receive a postcard in the mail inviting you to apply for full time delivery positions. You scan the QR code and open a link to schedule an interview. When you arrive that the interview the interviewer is not prepared. They are not aware of you or your appt. This is what happened to me.

The interviewer wanted to let me know that he is a contractor (those blue delivery vans) and tells me that the position does not pay what the online descriptions said. He goes on to say that this is a seasonal position that ends on December 27th. And, because of the fact that it would take a couple of weeks to process me as a new hire (drug screenings and what have you) so it would be pointless to apply further. There is no possibility of it becoming a full time job.

The interviewer had a lot of negative things to say about Amazon advertising these seasonal positions so late. It is clear that Amazon has the technology to communicate to the hiring contractor of scheduled interviews and to provide accurate information in the job description advising that this is not an Amazon position.

To sum things ups, this was a complete waste of his time and mine. Don't let it be of yours. Know what you are getting into. Amazon does have warehouse positions and they hire Flex drivers which has a higher rate of pay. However, those schedules are typically 4 hours a day and per the interviewer most Flex drivers finish their deliveries in 2 and a half hours. #jobsearch #amazon #hiring #seasonal #wordsofadvice

I would recommend they check with HR or ethics at their company. That question is inappropriate.

Most often when an individual works for a 1099 they don't pay the necessary taxes into social security. While working and younger one might think they benefit from not putting money into SS. One might think they need every penny to survive now. At $8.00/hr you probably do however when you retire and your SS benefits are figured you will be at a disadvantage. When you retire you need as much from SS as you can get. That little bit might be all you have to live on especially if you are working without putting money into a retirement fund. How would you in $8.00/hr? Look for jobs that you can invest in your future as well as survive now.

Who else finds it frustrating to follow up with managers by phone to check on your application status? This is something I like to do because with apps like Indeed etc I know they get many applications.I got a hold of one manager this week so I'm hoping for an interview.The worst is when you're told there will a 2nd interview and never hear back.Or be told they will call you by a certain day but they don't.I know it's down to people's personal rudeness sometimes but it's unnerving waiting.

This is ridiculous

I feel like I’m being interviewed to death, I’m jumping through every hoop. I’m not Going to work for 15$ Hour, I apply to the jobs I’m qualified for and every single one has interviewed me and I hear nothing back. I’m getting tired of this.

Background checks

I’m more than qualified for most entry level jobs. But my background is less than desirable. I realize this. I’m in recovery and have turned my life around but I still carry the stains on my background check and have to explain them every time. I have worked the past two years at Domino’s and now at a car detailing shop for very low pay because of my background. I was hoping that this would show my determination and build trust and accountability and work history so I would at least have a stepping stone into the workforce since in active addiction I didn’t have really any work history. Anyway, I know I’m rambling. I’m just frustrated with interviewing and putting myself out there to get turned down over and over again. My worst “looking” charge is going on 8 years old and my most recent is going on 3 years old. I’m will have successfully completed probation in March 2022 and my probation officer is more than willing to support me with letters of recommendation but I’ve yet to have an employer even want one. I can’t survive on $9 an hour forever. I’m barely making ends meet now trying to take care of myself and my son. Basically I pay for daycare and my check is gone. Thank goodness for rental assistance but what do I do when that is gone?

Before the interview just keep saying "I've got this" out loud several times. Remember that the nerves you are feeling are also excitement. Use that to your advantage. I hope I'm not to late with this advice. You've got this!!

Why do I fold during interviews but, not when I'm under pressure?

I’ve noticed that people who speak in exceptional English format are more known to get rewarded opportunities & higher pay. Even though they might not be the brightest.They contribute the gift of gab & do well under pressure. I seem to fold when I’m getting interviewed. I have great confidence and I speak with intelligence.Why do I speak formal on a regular basis, then when I get interviewed I stumble? Anyone else has this issue? How do I overcome this flaw? Help! #interview #advice #jobsearch

I think that we all are under a lot of pressure. We want the job so bad that we cave during the interview. I have done this myself, mostly because I have been out of work for a long time. You should drink some calming tea before your interview. I like Bigalow tea and it works. good luck

I agree that job interviews can be stressful. I have asthma and sometimes this can cause an anxiety attack. Drinking tea seems to calm me down at least after a stressful situation.
