I'm applying for a job at Blizzard. Dreams can come true more than once, right?

I finally got a rejection email from them today. Doesn't help with being at work and still a little sick from catching flu over the weekend

Oh hey, this thread. I used to live this thread before I escaped Subway and started working at a coffee place. It's been good until the past couple of months.

We had some issues when one of our supervisors got the sack after she refused to stop being confrontational and aggressive to other staff, and decided to fake a week's illness, and then threatened to take us all to court. I live right near work so I covered a few of her shifts to help out, and then started covering more shifts, and people's sick days, until this became a regular thing and I ended up generally going nine or ten days between days off.

Then our franchise decided it was opening a new store, and sent my store's manager to run it. She took four of our good staff to the new store. Another left the company when they were told that they weren't allowed to also go to the new store, as it would stretch our team too thin. Our new manager employed a guy from his old store, who quit within a week, so again people are doing extra hours and extra shifts, and nobody in charge is really paying attention to who has which days off as long as someone is working.

And now I find out that my assistant manager is changing stores as well. In the eighteen months or so that I've been here, the only person left from when I started is me. Everyone is gone, everything is a mess, and I really haven't thought about quitting until now. But god is it tempting.

I'm also working part time as a tech at a Staples. We had mandatory training today. The trainer who came in spent two hours talking about the differences between routers including role playing and pop quizes. She also wanted us to sell fancy home security cameras that you can put around your home which she insisted was a good way to monitor her kids. She then showed us live video feed of her multi-million mansion in California and her "lazy no good son who traded everything she bought him for liquor" loafing it up on the couch. Every example she gave about technology included her lazy son.

She also mentioned that if we sold three security cameras she would give us a set for free to use in our own homes. We all make less than ten hourly but she did not understand when I asked if the camera package included the home to set them up in and my manager shot me a look of great consternation.

In the end though everyone who completed the training got a $400 5.3ghz router for some reason? And then I had to offload a truck and a customer asked me what kind of pencils a set of pens were.

All in all a strange day. I'll call it a wash.

Examples:

"Every laptop ordered from the store can be delivered anywhere for free. I used this when I had to buy my son a second laptop after he had his first one stolen at knife point"

"Our tech services offer onsite set up for printers which is useful because the wireless is confusing for some people. My son needed to set up his new printer after he traded his first printer for a bottle of Svedka. He needed to print out a paper the next day but forgot"

"My son and his friend broke into 21 cars on our block, but he left mine alone as soon as he saw the red light flash on these home camera systems"

"These cameras have a two way audio feature which is great for monitoring the home" this was followed by her yelling at her son to feed the dogs through the cameras.

This month I conducted a writing contest, helped an outside team cast, script and direct three short films, got one of our clients in touch with a literary agent, taught four other clients how to do calculus properly in preperation for their higher mathematics exams, taught a 4-week class how to draw and paint, taught another 4-week class how to play guitar, taught another 4-week class how to code in Python, was offered a huge amount of money to smuggle an iPhone and threatened with death when I refused, and sprained a muscle in my butt during Insanity.
