denied a job at 7-11

ok, this one really pisses me off. I go and apply at a 7-11 close to my house. the store manager tells me "yes we are looking for reliable people close by, that are good wtih customers and other employees. i am willing to give everyone a shot."
i said all the right things to get the job. wait a week for the criminal background check to come in. then she tells me this morning that they want to go in a differant direction. WTF!? what other direction is there!? NOT MANY PEOPLE APPLY AT A 7-11 YA KNOW! does anyone else find this as a piss off or is it just me ?

Niebr, are there any employment agencies in your area? go apply there, interview with them, and then let them do all of the leg work with their clients and find you a job. you just sit back and wait. there is no charge to you. have you gone that route yet?

 Why do they need a criminal background check for the 7-11? Well, don't feel too bad when I was younger one of the first jobs NOT to call me back was K-Mart. I was like WTF? (I have a clean record, so it was even more like GTFO!) That's so stupid, did they want a drug test too?

7-11 is very careful about who they hire.  Their employee's have serious job duties - such as money transfers. They do criminal checks to prevent hiring a thug. And drug screens also help to get a good idea of someone's character. Not that all people who use drugs are bad - but you gotta admit - a person who is strung out looking for their next fix is more likely to steal from their job than someone who isn't hooked on a drug.

Neiber - keep trying. Don't take it personal that they told you that because they probably really had a change of mind about how they want to do things and it probably had nothing to do with you. Try the agencies like tuna and suggested. In my city - the 7-11 headquarters does all the hiring and then places you to a location. So here - you're not dealing with the actual branch location but rather headquarters. Not sure how they do it where you are. Anyways - if you really want to still work at 7-11 - just try back later. And everytime you go to that 7-11 be nice and respectable to them and show them that you can be a teamplayer with a good attitude :) Good luck!!

Well, yeah I agree to a certain extent. Just b/c someone has a "record" doesn't necessairly mean that they're a thug. You have to give people a chance. Some people make mistakes in their life and want to do what they can to correct them. The guy 10 years back that committed a robbery was probably trying to get money to put food on the table for his 5 kids. I'm not justifying any sort of crime, but I can see the cause and effect of it all.

Don't take it personally Niebr.  It's all a process and it happens.  Ever thought about a job in retail?  Maybe apply at a store you like.  Clothing stores, and the like, tend to hire younger people.

Don't feel bad, I applied at ULTA (cosmetics store) last year for extra money and they didn't hire me....and I am a credit counselor and I was shocked, but then again I don't have any retail experience just call center experience, I didn't think they would deny me the job but they never even called me back. Maybe they(7-11) hired a friend or something, I'm sure you will find something out there. Just keep looking because the job isn't going to come to you, you have to go out there an get it. Go to monster.com and submit your resume.

I had a similar thing happen. i was a MANAGER at macys for 2+ years, and I applied for a part-time position at JC Penney for some extra money about a year after I quit macys, and they told me I wasnt qualified. *shrug* some people are just a-holes. Dont lose hope Neibr, you'll find something!

I have a question for you about Macy's. I'm a current part-time employee, but found an awesome marketing job that wants to hire me ASAP. How do I go about quitting at Macy's? My manager is on vacation for the next week and I want to start this new job right away. Thanks!

I think you have to give them a two week notice or something in writing like a resignation letter. If you manager isn't there then you could probably give it to the person that is in charge till they get back..

 You need to turn in a written form in your HR department of the store. Its the same place where you pick up your paychecks- usually in gift wrap! And just so you know, you dont technically need to turn in a 2 week notice at macy's, they will accept a 1week notice and still give you a good reference if needed.
