    Im used to a more .....Simple life ....

    Years ago when a man wanted a job he would fill out an application and hand it to a manager. I remeber haveing to walk out into the shop and find "the guy under the hood of the jag". Shake a greasy hand , and most of the time leave with the job. Sometimes id hand over a resume. But back then you knew where you stood as you got in the car to go home.

    2 weeks ago i started this latest round , while working away at Cadillac. Sent a resume down to a firetruck place , i get a call from a lady , from what is called "HR" or "Human Recources". She had the resume , and said she would be in contact with the manager and get back to me on an appointment to interview. She didnt call back like she said she would. So i called, no awnser. By that point I had quit cadillac and was acutlly in the process of rejoining cadillac. I decided i would drive down and personally meet the manager and the lady from HR. She went on vacation according to the gaurd that wouldnt allow me into the facility. A few days later i called once again , she appologized she had forgotten about me while on vacation , and the job has been filled. Next day i was fired by cadillac.

    To date , 19 Resumes with applications have been handed and sent out. All ending up in "HR". Apprently this HR thing is everywhere now , and to get into a company one needs to find a way to smooth over the HR lady so she is modivated to stop watching soap operas and planning vacations and maybe do her job for once.

    Seems it gets harder each time to get a job , let alone to speak with a manager ...

    My new term for "HR" ? Halting Resumes

    Hmm.. I hear ya.. This is why, if you can, you need to start your own business.. It doesn't have to make you rich - it just needs to keep you alive... Owning your own business isn't easy - but neither is depending on other people for your paycheck...

    No, it doesn't exist.. You can use the name. It's a good idea, anyway.. You should try it.. If it fails, then at least you gave it your best shot...

    Re: Hr

    I also hate HR departments. Apparently, these days, the best way into a large organization is through a temp-to-hire agency. I've certainly done that a couple times. I also use thicker paper for my resumes, so they stick out when someone in HR flips through them.

    It's not what you know, it's who you know. At my summer job, which started in 2004, I didn't fill out the HR paper work until a month in...I flew in under their radar...it's the easiest way in....

    Re: Hr

    Human resources is where big companies put managers when they can not do other jobs, as such, these people value paper qualifications over real world experience and it seems that once a company has an HR dept, they start the slow spiral towards bankruptcy on that day since dept managers no longer have the decision on who to hire after interveiws
