12 of 30 Days of Freebies

Today I had 10 interviews scheduled every 30 minutes from 10 AM until 3 PM. They went very well...all two of them. I couldn't believe that only 2 people showed up. Of the 2 that did show, one of them forgot to bring her brain, and the other brought a girlfriend and her 3 kids. To an interview. Hopefully tomorrow will be better, I have about 12 more scheduled, so we'll see how many of them actually show.

I deliberately schedule these in a small town office that belongs to my Dad. It's a couple of turns off the main highway, and the fact that they can follow directions to find the place tells me a LOT as to what kind of employee they will be. The job requires them to find homes based only on written directions, and trust me when I say that the ones who call every 5 minutes because they can't read a street sign do NOT last very long. I just don't have the patience for them. I have too many things going on to stay on the phone with an employee who gets lost 6 times a day. It happens occasionally, and it's no big deal if they have to call every once in a while, but when someone just can't follow simple directions, they're better off with a different job.

Anyway, I'm keeping it short and sweet tonight (well, for me anyway) because I have another long day tomorrow. Today's freebie is the upper case of the 2nd alpha in Peachy Fantasy. You'll get the lower case tomorrow and then, well, I'm not sure what comes next. I'm too tired to remember. Anyway, download today's freebie on 4Shared or Rapidshare.

Good Luck with the interviews. I don't envy you:) When I used to manage a nursing facility - I used to interview new nursing assistants. I was baffled by the types of people who applied. I never would have beleived what some people do during a job interview, if I hadn't seen it myself. One guy (knowingly)showed up two hours late for our appointment. When he was told that I was in another interview and unable to see him, he stated that he would wait and then curled up on the couch in the waiting room TO TAKE A NAP!!! I couldn't beleive my eyes!! Needless to say, he didn't get an interview or the job.

Thank you for sharing - "Linmahan"
