DOWNLOAD APPLICATION: http://www.phoenixcc.org/club/page_navig.asp?CLNK=1&APC=FILELIB_DOWNLO AD&GRP=14415&NS=PUBLIC&FID=138352 USED JOB SHACK INSIDER: Here is the process…Very few people know about this job. Less know what they need to do to get it. The Question is do you? Do you want this job? The country club is a high-end place that hires regular people but, you must look job ready, you must be educated on who they are. What they do. You must be polite...a "YES Sir" or a "No Mam" goes a long way here. You MUST be available to work the hours posted and be flexible to other emergency hours. You need to go over there looking AZ Casual "work ready" sharp. They are a conservative bunch so cover up and take out anything removable. Experience is helpful but, not the first thing to be considered in hiring you. They will hire on the above presence you make and on your personality, love of working with children. So get yourself put together, become educated and hit their HR Office at no later than 10AM (I would actually go at 9:30 AM). Bring your best "A" Game and impress them. Make them respond to you “you know a lot about my company!” I asked you if you really wanted this job...this is what the selected candidate will be willing to do to get it. Are you that person? Everyone is welcome to apply but, only a select few will know what you now know and even fewer will have it in them to do. The person who does will be the one that they will hire. Could be you...if you got game! * RELIABLE* TRANSPORTATION MEANS "CAN YOU GET TO WORK?" MEN'S LOCKER ROOM/VALET Full time position in the Men's Locker Room and Valet.

The CSR is effectively the Company’s “store-front” at the facility. He/she is the internal representative of our company to our A/C owners, operators, business partners, and to the business aviation community. Swing Shift Opening. Must have High School Diploma or GED - At least 1-3 years of Customer Service experience, preferably in General Aviation, working at an FBO (YA! LIKE WHO HAS THIS AND IS NOT ALREADY WORKING?

YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISE HOW EACH EMPLOYER MIGHT DEFINE… Here it will be “No Fraud/Theft/Violent Crime History”. Others are considered upon the nature of the crime, how it related to the job applied for and the age of the offence. Always Call an employer and ask them what they mean by MASSIVE JOB GIVE-A-WAY LIMIT NO MORE THAN TWO JOBS PER APPLICANT

"pass" - you might be surprised as to the differences you will see...take the chip off the shoulder...How many jobs did you not apply for because you assumed that you knew what "pass" means or if it even applied to your circumstances...You lose nothing by calling...

Morning shifts start at 9am and end at 3pm/4pm. Night shifts start at 4pm and end around 10pm. Previous experience in a high paced, full- service restaurant is a plus. But even more important is an enthusiastic and outgoing personality who enjoys working in a team setting. NOTE: This is not a seasonal job. We are busy year round and are looking for cooks to grow with our company. Your hours will not be cut during the summer. If you work in a seasonal restaurant/resort this is the perfect time to join a great company. Please apply in person between 9am-11am OR 2-5pm @ 5029 N 44th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85018 - Please bring 2 forms of valid ID with you to your interview. Also, bring you “A” Game by doing your homework on this company. Show them that you are truly interested enough to already know their menu. TIPSTER: A real key to getting hired is to learn the menu before you go. “No time or too much effort” you tell me. You need to hit more stores and pump out more applications. Everything is numbers…the more applications the better.
  9. 9. WHO TAUGHT YOU THIS? GO GET YOUR MONEY BACK! The reality is that it is time better spent doing one or two applications per day CORRECTLY than to pump out 100 that are not. Think about this. This is really critical to you getting a job in the short term. You get no reward for volume but, you do get a reward for doing an application correctly – you get more interviews and that means (if you do your job) you are gone to be offered jobs (bottomline). Back to why you need to learn the menu and it comes down to pure common sense. Common sense says that training is centered on you learning the menu. If you show up and already know the menu, how much training will you need? Does this give you an advantage? Common sense! =============================================================== SSP AMERICA – THE FOOD TRAVEL EXPERTS http://www.foodtravelexperts.com/international/ SSP AMERICA HAS A NEW CEO THAT PUTS FOOD FIRST… http://foodtravelupdate.com/

High School Diploma or GED preferred, but required. http://www.colliers.com/en-us/about/careers/jobsearch TIPSTER: This seems too easy that even old Uncle Bob would qualify. Be warned that there is more to us that what is in the employer’s job description. If you think you can slide on this and cut-n-paste your retail resume into this…or that you have experience that any human being would see and know by looking at your resume. On all counts this would be wrong. The gatekeeper is a computer searching for key words and phrases and it is not able to see how qualified you really are because you did not spell it out in detail or your words did not match what it was looking for. This is why ONET is so critical to creating the perfect application. The perfect application gets by the gatekeeper and then, a human being can see the connections (maybe but, what if the HR Person isn’t any smart than the computer at connecting that dots?). http://www.onetonline.org/ =============================================================== Better know who these people are, what they do and have a good understanding as to where you would fit in. Keep on task. If they are looking for a Day Porter, I would not tell them that I am a great cook or a warehouse worker.

Hecklinger, Ph.D., TSA Career Coach This article is a follow-up to last month’s guidelines on preparing for a competency-based interview. Because these interviews can be intimidating, it is important to plan how you will present yourself during the interview itself. Your accomplishments, your enthusiasm, and your potential for contributing to TSA at an increased level of responsibility can shine when you successfully navigate the interview. Navigating a structured, competency-based employment interview: 1. You should not assume that the evaluators are familiar with your education and work history. Therefore, you should use the interview as an opportunity to communicate your experience and any other information that relates to the MASSIVE JOB GIVE-A-WAY LIMIT NO MORE THAN TWO JOBS PER APPLICANT
  20. 20. position. Since you have prepared extensively for this, go into the interview with a strategy. It should be your goal to show the panel members or the interviewer that you are the right person for the job. 2. Respond to questions thoroughly using specific examples that demonstrate your qualifications. Use the Situation - Task – Action – Result technique: a. Situation or Task: Describe the situation that you were in or the task that you needed to accomplish. You must describe a specific event or situation, not a generalized description of what you have done in the past. Be sure to give enough detail for the interviewer to understand. This situation can be from a previous job, from a volunteer experience, or any relevant event. b. Action you took: Describe the action you took and be sure to keep the focus on you. Even if you are discussing a group project or effort, describe what you did, not the efforts of the team. Don’t tell what you might do. Tell what you did. c. Results you achieved: What happened? How did the event end? What did you accomplish? What did you learn? 3. Make a positive impression. Look directly at the interviewer or panel members and smile. If possible, shake hands with the panel members or the interviewer. Keep an open posture (i.e., don’t cross your arms). Be attentive when the interviewer or each panel member speaks. Even though the panel members or interviewer may be taking notes, try to direct your responses first to the person who asked you the question and make eye contact whenever possible. 4. Show your enthusiasm for the position. In addition to answering the questions effectively, it should be your goal to demonstrate to the interviewer or panel members that you would be an effective team member, that you can be counted on to help out in dealing with special needs, and that you will be willing to take on additional responsibilities as needed to achieve the TSA’s goals. Try to avoid passively responding to questions or giving very brief answers (i.e., don’t just say “Yes, I can do that.” Give examples). 5. Show pride in your past performance. Be positive in sharing your skills and accomplishments. Remember your list of top priority accomplishments and experiences that are most relevant to the position and include them in your responses.
  21. 21. 6. Listen carefully to each question and make sure you know what is being asked. If you are not certain, ask for clarification. Some questions may have several parts. You may want to make notes to remind yourself of the different parts of the question before you begin to answer the question. Note: The interview process for some positions may not permit the interviewees to take notes. Try to find out ahead of time whether you can take a pad of paper and a pen into the interview. After you have answered, you may wish to clarify with the interviewer or panel members that you have answered the question, especially if the question has several parts. A possible question would be: “Would you like me to expand on or clarify my answers to any of the sections of the question?” 7. Use positive language. Avoid can’t, don’t, and won’t. Do not bring up anything negative about your current or past jobs and employers. 8. Show a sincere interest in the needs of TSA and a willingness to meet those needs. If you have the opportunity to ask questions, demonstrate your interest by asking questions about TSA’s future needs, challenges, and goals. Even if the interviewer or panel members choose not to answer your question(s), you will still have expressed your interest in what you can do for the organization. Avoid asking self-serving questions about topics such as opportunities for promotion or when the hiring process might be completed. Do not bring up questions regarding pay, vacations, and benefits. You can find out that information later. 9. Be prepared to make a final statement if the interviewer(s) ask if you have anything that you would like to say or if they ask if you wish to make a statement. This is a golden opportunity for you to share your enthusiasm for the position, your readiness to make a contribution at the next level, your readiness for supervising and mentoring others, your commitment to the organization’s goals, your pride in your past performance, and your readiness to be a member of the team. Don’t miss this opportunity. Be prepared! Walk out of the interview with as much confidence as you entered the room. Close with a sincere thank you, a firm handshake and continue to smile as you exit. Last impressions are as important as first ones. Your preparation before the interview, combined with your STAR answers and enthusiasm, will make you feel like you successfully navigated the competency-based interview.

USED JOB SHACK INSIDER: PETSMART Pet Bather Interview - I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at PetSmart in December 2013. Interview Details – You apply online and receive a confirmation email. If someone likes what they see, they will call you. About a week after I applied, I received a phone call from the Assistant Manager (Operations Manager) to arrange an interview. The interview was casual and consisted mostly of self-guided questions followed by a small amount of behavioral questions. I was at the end of that interview that I was a great candidate and that they would like to go ahead and schedule a second interview. The second interview was more like a deep conversation based on customer service standards with the majority of questions being behavioral interview questions. In both interviews the managers were frequently interrupted with operations necessary to the continuing function of the store. Though slightly disruptive, each disturbance was followed with an apology and sincere thanks for my patients.
  25. 25. Interview Question –  What was the most difficult customer experience I had ever had? (I was asked to walk them through it from the kickoff to the finish line. ------------------------------------------------- Cashier Interview - I applied online and the process took 1 week Interview Details – Applied online and then called in for an interview with the Store Manager and Operations manager within a few days and hired on the spot. Interview Question – Standard interview questions...  Why should I hire you? -------------------------------------------------- Pet Care Associate Interview - I applied online and took 1+ week Interview Details – Applied online on a Friday. Got a call for an interview the following Monday. Interview was set up for the upcoming Thursday. Interviewed with a manager (not sure if operations or general manager) for about 35 minutes. She had a clipboard and told me that she had questions that she was required to ask. The first question I was asked was why I wanted to work at PetSmart. Second question was if I owned any pets, what kind, how long, and if I had experience with animals other than the ones I have owned. All other questions were hypothetical retail-based questions, such as if you are dealing with an angry/difficult customer, how would you handle the situation? If a customer asks you a question you don't know the answer to, how would you handle the situation? If there is a policy that you don't agree with, how would you handle it? How would you explain something technical in an easily understandable way to a customer/associate? Etc. It was a fairly straightforward interview. We talked about the dog that I had adopted from a local shelter that held its adoption drives in that particular store, how I'm an animal science major and had extensive knowledge of animal behavior, animal anatomy and physiology, and illness prevention techniques. When she was done asking me questions, she brought in the second manager and she asked me to tell her a little about myself, etc. then she brought me out onto the floor where we did a role- play exercise. She played a customer with a daughter that had a Barbie themed room and wanted a fish tank to match. After that was over, they handed me the paperwork for a drug test and told me to go take it. Was worried about it, because one of my medications will give a positive. Told them this and she thanked me for my candor. At no point, did she or the lab techs write down any medications I was on. Lab tech told me that if it came back positive, a medical review specialist would contact me to get my prescription info and they would verify it. This never happened. Drug test results came back on Tuesday of the next week, and the manager that called me said that everything came back good and wanted to know when I could come in to start my training, and what shirt size I wear. Interview Question –  If there is a policy that I didn't agree with, how would I handle it? -----------------------------------------------
  26. 26. Pet Care Associate Interview - I applied online and took 1 week -. Interview Details – Applied online at www.Petsmart.com got a call about a week later and was asked if I was interested in taking care of the smaller animals and to come in for an interview. We mostly talked about how to move up, previous experience, things like how often the cages are clean and what hours are like. Make sure you act like you actually want to work for and not just at PetSmart for money and hours. They will also ask about your previous and current jobs and how you liked them. Show that you care and want to interact with the animals and costumers and that you want to help costumers out and make sure you help them get the right pet and that it goes to the right home. Got offered the job web the interview was over, went to go do the drug test (you have 24 hours), and going in for training next week. Interview Questions  Why did you choose PetSmart?  How are you with multitasking?  What would your current boss say about you? Pet Care Associate Interview - I applied online and took 3 weeks Interview Details – I applied on PetSmart online and with each application you have to submit, you have to take a personality test. I applied to several PetSmarts and got called in for an interview for all of them and even offered a job at new opening that I didn't apply for. They said they loved my personality test. I only went to the one I was most interested (the new opening) and she scheduled an interview for me next week at the Marriott Hotel and it was very pretty, very professional. I went to the 7th floor where the interviews took place and the manager sat with me right away and asked me several scenario questions which weren't very hard but I would recommend looking these questions up and practicing like I did. After the interview she sat me down at a bench watching a PetSmart introduction video, but I wasn't sure I got the job because other managers were doing interviews and everyone sat there. I was then called in to speak to another Interviewer, she was a manager at a different PetSmart and asked me generally the same questions as the first one, but I was caught off guard when she asked me to sell this post it notes to her, and I didn't know how Then she said she'll be calling everyone mid next week with their decisions I got called next Monday with a congratulations and that I was chosen :) but as a Guest Service Associate at the Pet's Hotel instead of a PetCare Associate which disappointed me greatly because I really wanted a lot of interaction with animals more than people but I took what I can get. Interview Questions  Give me a situation where you didn't know the answer to a question?  Name a time where someone needed to be talked down to relax.  Name something that you had to learn recently.  What was the best part you liked about working at your last job and your least favorite?
  27. 27. Cashier Interview - I applied online and took 1 week Interview Details – I applied online. I got a call back less than a week later. I got an interview the next day after the phone call. I only had 1 interview and "got hired" on the spot, but would have to pass a drug test that they promptly gave me the lab work for and I went and took care of that right away. The interview only lasted about 10 minutes. Interview Question – The questions were not difficult.  Why do you want to work here?  What is your schedule?  What are you going to school for?  What kind of experience do you have with cashiering, customer service, and animals? Negotiation Details – Well he offered me the job and I took it. We shook on it. My advice is to dress and look nice, smile, be prepared to answer questions, and go in there with experience in cashiering, customer service, and animal related work. ============================================== PetsHotel Guest Services Associate Location: PHOENIX, AZ (0133-Deer Valley, 2901 W AGUA FRIA FWY).
