No new listings today.

Whole Foods Market
No openings today. I wonder how they manage to keep minimal turnover.
Second Chance
1700 Ridgely Street
This is an interesting place. My therapist told me about it. In effect, they “recycle” buildings, homes and lives. “We deconstruct buildings and homes, salvage usable materials and make those available to the public through our 200,000 square feet of retail space. With the revenue generated, we provide job training and workforce development for those with employment obstacles in the Baltimore region.”
No current openings for titles of interest to me —
– Administrative Support
– Sales Associates
– Cashiers
— but apparently they will accept applications and keep them on file for a year.
I will print out & complete a paper application, and then scan at library next week and send them by e-mail.

Applied for:

MONDAY 2016-06-17
Dollar General
GOT A CALL BACK, from a store manager. I did not get his name or location because I was riding a very rattle-trap #8 bus down the super-rough portion of Baltimore Street between Paca and Gay. But this is a positive development; in the past I’ve typically not got call-backs until six months into the job search.
He asked pointedly as to why my availability is so restricted, saying he really needs someone who can work later in the day. He also asked about my “background,” i.e., criminal record.
