Cast of Characters
Person who wants a job: Asshat
Recruiter Extraordinaire: Moi
Asshat had been scheduled to interview at our client in town last Monday, however the client rescheduled the interview for today. Asshat said that she could not possibly attend today and proposed next Monday. Phone hijinks ensued as we tried to nail down an interview time for her.
Phone: RING RING OMFG RIIIIIING
Moi: Hello, Recruiter Extraordinaire, how may I assist you this fine day?
Asshat: Yeah I need to schedule an interview.
Moi: Ah yes. When is a good day and time for you?
Asshat: Well I was already in town once and that didn’t make me happy, you know I live 30 minutes outside of town and so I was going to come in and with gas prices being what they are it’s hard to come into town for an interview RAWR OMG FISHSTICKS.
(thinking to myself ~ gosh, if I needed a job, I would not be complaining thusly to the person who made the decision on whether or not to hire me for said job)
Moi: Ok, I will let MyCoWorker know that Monday is a good date/time for you and we’ll see if we can get that locked in for you.
Asshat: MINDLESS BITCHING AND RAMBLING ABOUT GAS PRICES AND HAVING TO DRIVE 30 MILES TO AN INTERVIEW
Moi (thinking to myself ~ gosh, when I needed a job to support my family, I drove 35 minutes one way to a job for a whole darn year. In the snow. Backwards. Barefoot. These kids today.)
Moi: Ok, well what it boils down to is, do you want a job or don’t you?
Asshat: Um, EXCUSE ME, I just need to lock in an interview time and I don’t need this from you, THANK YOU. (click)
Needless to say, she will not be locked in for any interview with our client. She will not be working with us again. Complaining about the distance one has to drive to get to an interview, to the person making the hiring decision = fail.
In other news, my coworker of awesomeness (Mary) was holding down the fort today while I ran errands on my lunch break. Someone whom we had fired due to poor attendance came in with a stack of paperwork and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a Ziploc bag. She was already pissed off when she came in.
It seemed that our system (which is brokered through a 3rd party) for employees to look up their pay stubs had confounded the poor lamb, and she was unable to log into their website and pull them up. Thus she was unable to get food stamp assistance and all she had to eat was peanut butter and jelly (hence Exhibit A). Had she come in and nicely asked in a pleasant manner, Mary would have happily helped her get said pay stubs and all would have been peachy keen jelly bean.
As it was, Idiot Ex-Employee a.) ranted and cursed at Mary, b.) flung a wadded up piece of paper at her, and then c.) threw Exhibit A, her peanut butter sandwich, at her as well. Professional.
