Notwithstanding the obstacle I mentioned before, they’re opening a new store only three blocks from my church, and this presents a possible opportunity I can’t afford to ignore. For hourly positions, they require that you download a paper application, print it out and take it in person to the store in question. I normally can only print things on Tuesdays.

They are hiring at 8670 Pulaski Highway. Friends have been urging me to apply. Starting pay $12.00. The web page says one needs to print out a paper application, fill it in and present in person at the store. It’s a straight shot on the #35 bus. Flyer says, “Must be able to work varying schedules to accommmodate the operational schedule of the store including shifts scheduled between 6AM and 11PM, seven days a week.”

Visited site. No openings at that store today.
Visited site. Applied for Cart Attendant, Tioga Parkway store. Despite the e-mail they’d sent me about two openings for “Logistics Team Member,” this was the only open position in Baltimore. The web site is bewildering.

The system has saved very little information from my previous applications, not even my birthdate. Store identifiers do not appear in the list in the “Job Cart.” That’s Taleo for you.
