Advice from Snagajob members who got hired
“It works, I applied for a job last year and got a call back within a week.
You just can’t give up hope. Also, it’s always a good idea to call the company or stop by and talk to a manager. Be aggressive, but not to the point where they will get annoyed; meaning not multiple calls a week or going by the store more than once a week. (It’s been happening at my place of work and my manager is super annoyed.)
Also, I’ve been watching my manager load applications all week, and we get about 20 notices a day. This is not including the one’s that come directly through our company, and the people who walk in and fill an application out. It’s a long process; and again don’t lose hope."
"If you just apply, you probably wont get hired.
I worked for Stein Mart and found out about the job on Snagajob.You have to apply then go to the location and talk to the manager. Drop off a card with a cell number attached to it.
I applied and turned in my number to the manager at Stein Mart, she liked me but lost my number so I called back. When I talked to her a second time she had me in for an interview and was hired the next day. Putting in an application is just the first step. Drop by once a week so your fresh in their minds.”
