Job Hunt Continues...

I am off again for the job hunt.  I called Wal-Mart and they now have a computerized application process.  I have to drive down and sit at a kiosk to fill out an application.  I am also going to break down and apply at McDonald's.  They have a big sign out front saying, "Now Hiring!"  Ideally, I would like to be the dude that gathers and returns shopping carts at Wal-Mart.  Minimum wage. No stress.  Ideal for me.  I tried to apply at Kroger but their webpage application process is slow or down.  Next: Wendy's, Krystal's, Taco Hell, Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Subway, Captain D's, Arby's.  Do you want fries with that? LOL  I had an interview with Burger King, but wrote I had a DUI a few years ago and I think that turned the manager off. 

Well, let me get in the shower and make myself presentable incase I run into a manager.  I am determined to go back to work.  Wish me luck.

PS - I am still going to vocational rehabilitation.  I just don't want to put all my eggs in one basket.

Best of luck Andrew. I had a job interview last Friday. I was very nervouse, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

nothing wrong with working at McDonalds...I know many successful people that once delved their hands into teaches us more about ourselves than we ever really would know.

GOod luck're a wise man, and even though you don't like hearing it, I think you're doing wonderfully proud of you!! :) smiles and snow, again, Elizabeth and family

Have you thought of looking for opportunities through Craigslist? Go to and choose your geographic area. There are a lot of people/companies who post requests for employement, as well as postings from people offering employment. You like computers, so you could post that you offer computer repair/disgnostic help and will make home/office calls. And you can do it under the table so as not to disrupt your disability payments.
