I fucking hate Indeed! Yes, I did get a job, one that’s 40 fucking miles away. I did a few phone and online interviews for something, and I’ve been building up my CV
They asked me to come down for a trial, I asked where, they said Ayr. The emails I get for job applications are within the range of 50 miles, and you can’t shorten it unless you go to the site itself. Most of the locations are extremely vague, or just factually incorrect. So you might get something that says Glasgow, only to find out that it’s 7 miles outside of the city, at the other side of the city as you are. I’m 99% this one said Glasgow, then I do all the interviews and put everything forward, and they tell me I have to an interview 40 miles away at 8AM, yeah, fuck that.
They’re a company that works in Glasgow, but also does work elsewhere in the country. So I imagine that’s why I was originally told that the job would have been at least in the city I live in.
I’d have probably done 20, or maybe even 30 miles, but fuck that. That’s like a train and a bus for me, possibly two busses. I’d have to get up at like 5:30AM, and my first two hours of pay would be pissed away on transportation alone. I’d only be getting paid £6.52 an hour, and the train ticket alone is £9.20, another ~£2.50 for a single bus ticket.
Right now I’m doing a volunteering thing in a shop. I pack trollies full of food and other groceries from big shops to be sent away to old people who have dementia and other stuff, meaning that they can’t do their own shopping. I do that for about 2-4 hours a day, 3 days a week. It’s cool because I can listen to stuff on my phone while I’m working.
I applied to work in a charity shop that’s in “Paisley” which is fairly close to me, but it’s at the far far
end of Paisley. I’d need two buses to get there, or a hour and little under a half walk. The last charity shop I worked in was in Paisley, but that was like a half an hour walk.
They should force people to put up postcodes on their job descriptions, then you’d know exactly where it was.
I’m going to apply for another charity shop job as soon as possible, but there are none that are near me right now. Applied for something earlier on today, but that wasn’t a volunteering job.>>42154519
