  1. 1. A LOCAL CONTRACTOR NEEDS YOU… HELP REDESIGN YOUR LOCAL WALMART Local company has been contracted to help in the reorganization (redesign) of the local Walmart Stores. They need general laborers to help tear down shelves, put up shelves, move and restock merchandise. THIS WILL BE THIRD SHIFT WORK Starting @ $8/HR with Bonuses! ASK FOR Mo… 1-561-889-2993 (CALL for info, an appointment or directions) EMPLOYER HAS ALREADY HIRED UMOM CAMPERS AND WOULD LIKE TO HIRE MORE!!!
  2. 2. EMPLOYMENT STARTS HERE! WHAT IS A QUALITY JOB? What is a quality job? How do you define quality? Well campers, it is in the eye of the individual job seeker. It is determined by you current status and your current prospects. It is how you perceive your work self and/or in what you want to do. It would be nice if we all could earn $20-30-40 per hour but, not all of us have the required skills, abilities or (even) luck to achieve these wages. If you truly understand the current, Arizona Labor Market where we have college graduates routinely accepting jobs at $10-12 per hour and an employer base that fights tooth and nail against raising the minimum wage or who freely associate a “living wage” with the worst form of communism or the end of civilization, you would be hard pressed to make a case for saying that the threshold for a quality job wage in Arizona would start at $12+ per hour is not realistic especially when we are dealing with displaced homemakers, the under-educated, entry or re- entry workers, those recently released and those with other barriers. The reality of our entry level in this market where those without barriers and who are currently in the job market find it hard to acquire this $12 standard, how can we expect the vast number of people who have been out of the workforce for (some for many years) a long time to achieve this standard? When we promote a measure to success as being your ability to achieve a quality job (in a market where these jobs do not exist) we are really saying to this vast number of people “you are a failure!” Here at the Used Job shack, our definition of a quality job is that we have a job where we didn’t - as we too well understand the reality of $8 per hour is preferable to zero dollars per hour. We understand that a quality job is more than salary; it is about finding our place where we want to be, doing work that we enjoy and being around people we enjoy. Given that definition, we must say that we all know many people with big salaries that do not have a quality job. When we use salary alone to measure success then we really do not understand the real needs of the clients that we claim to serve little-a-lone understand our clients. - Dr. Seine LaGone, Publisher, Used Job Shack 2014
  3. 3. EMPLOYMENT STARTS HERE! Is an $11.50-an-Hour Minimum Wage Coming to a City Near You? Washington, D.C., Here in Washington, a living-wage victory could provide a national road map for labor activists. Our nation's capital made international news this week when local lawmakers passed the most generous living-wage bill in the United States, which means workers in the District of Columbia will earn a minimum wage of $11.50 per hour by 2016. Wisely, activists and local politicians partnered with neighboring Montgomery and Prince George's counties in Maryland to raise their minimum wage to $11.50 by the year 2017. The move guarantees that businesses looking to save on labor costs won’t be able to skirt the district’s wage laws by fleeing to the suburbs. This movement at the local [level] is hugely important to win real concrete policy change nationally,” she tells TakePart. “It’s changing the conversation in D.C. and building momentum for what’s possible at a federal level. It shows the president and national legislators that this effort has grassroots political support.” http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/12/19/1150-hourly-minimum-wage-coming-city-near-you =========================================================================== WARNING: THIS APPLICATION WILL BE ACTIVE FOR 30 DAYS WHICH MEANS YOU NEED ONET ONLINE TO GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME. The average American cashier makes $20,230 a year, a salary that in a single-earner household would leave a family of four living under the poverty line. But if he works the cash registers at QuikTrip, it's an entirely different story. The convenience-store and gas-station chain offers entry- level employees an annual salary of around $40,000, plus benefits. Those high wages didn't stop QuikTrip from prospering in a hostile economic climate.
  4. 4. Many employers believe that one of the best ways to raise their profit margin is to cut labor costs. But companies like QuikTrip, the grocery-store chain Trader Joe's, and Costco Wholesale are proving that the decision to offer low wages is a choice, not an economic necessity. http://www.quiktrip.com/Jobs/Store/Job-Application-Form Pay Incentives • Entry-Level Assistant Managers are eligible to earn skill-based raises at their six-month anniversary. At one-year anniversary the Night or Relief Assistant is eligible to earn a pay raise. • Part-Time Clerks are eligible to earn a customer service bonus after six months service. • Every six months, Part-Time Clerks earn a retention bonus based on their total number of hours worked during the previous six months. ========================================================================== Position Hours/Week Starting Rate Weekly Pay Estimated Annual Relief / Night Assistant 46 $10.99 $538 $37,100 (includes bonus) ============================================================================= The Phoenix Division currently consists of 105 stores; 87 of those are in the Phoenix metropolitan area and 18 are in Tucson.

  6. 6. EMPLOYMENT STARTS HERE! WHAT'S IT LIKE TO WORK AT SPROUTS? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHjC3Ear_a4 This is a must watch video because otherwise you will not understand their company’s mantra (their culture) and you will miss by a mile, the correct answer to “why do you want to work for us?” =========================================================================== REALLY WANT TO GET HIRED? If you really want any of these 150+ jobs then it is on you to give yourself an advantage over the 100,000 other people here in Phoenix that “need” a job. You need to start this with: A. Use ONET ONLINE to construct your application. You need the key words and phrases that you need to populate into your application/resume. You need ONET to help you discover the skills and the abilities that you didn’t know that you had. B. Transfer the application information back into your resume to give a killer resume for this (or this range of jobs). C. APPLY FOR ONLY ONE JOB AND ONLY APPLY TO THE STORE CLOSEST TO YOU. Every store manager is telling us that if you want to get your application tossed, apply for multiple positions at the same store or at a location that is over 5-10 miles away from your home. D. Do your homework! You need to be able to have an intelligent conversation about the company and/or the industry. You need to understand what makes them tick and why they do what they do – without this, how would you know how you fit or if you would? E. Spruce yourself up, combed hair, brushed teeth and a recent bath will go a long way to getting you a longer interview. Dress for success is how you would you would go to work. If you are going to work at IBM, then please wear a suit. Dress for Success for most entry and/or re-entry jobs is a polo shirt and khakis (for building trades and warehouse you are already over-dressed). Do not go to Home Depot in a suit unless you want to be a business sales rep or a senior manager if want to get hired. F. Put on you walking shoes and go to the store you applied for between 10 AM – Noon or 2 – 4 PM (depending upon the business) to introduce yourself as someone who lives in the neighborhood, who applied online and ask if the manager could “please” pull your application. We had a manager say the other day that the sweetest sound is an applicant saying “I just live down the street…” G. Have a direct contact number where you pick up the phone or (if a message phone) where you can return an employer’s call within 30 minutes (if not sooner). You need to have your voice mail on and accepting calls (not full of messages). You need to remove all cute or profound messages or music and replace that with your name. Important to remember, you
  7. 7. have one hour to return a call before the employer calls the next on their list. If you don’t return their call in a prompt manner, they believe that you are no longer interested or you are already working. H. DO NOT CALL THEM UNLESS THEY CALLED YOU. Do not do these if you want the job as the employer will see you as too lazy, uninterested or shy to come in person. I. Have your documentation, prior employer addresses/phone numbers and previous home addresses to fill out the employment paperwork. Always have a current photo ID and your social security card.

Customer Response Center Representative A Peek at What Employees or Associates Do Talk on the phone to customers, agents, and State Farm employees using scripted responses: • Answer insurance-related questions from callers • Explain processes for claims and provide emergency assistance • Take detailed messages for agents/claims personnel • Provide emergency customer assistance While on the phone, you will utilize computer technology: •Use an online job aid • Use the State Farm intranet to locate information • Send detailed messages to agents and claims personnel • File claim reports using a computer Apply State Farm policies and procedures to unique situations. =========================================================================== Other Things to Know •Work non-standard shifts, including weekends, holidays, and evenings •Complete an extensive, paid training program to learn policies and procedures •Manage a variety of customer service situations •Receive additional on-the-job coaching and training Here’s What Employees or Associates Say About the Job “It is an exciting and ever-changing environment where you are always getting trained on how to do things better.” “Every day at the CRC is fun because it never actually feels like you’re coming to work.

  12. 12. and the atmosphere is so inviting.” “Every customer that you work with is unique and sometimes challenging. You must meet their needs in a way that satisfies both the customer and State Farm policies.” “We alternate between very busy times and very slow times; the continual change of work levels can be challenging.” “You feel important when you have been called upon to help out in a crisis situation, such as a hurricane, Sept. 11th, or an earthquake; however, this can be stressful.” “The CRC is a structured environment, you always know exactly when to be at work, have meetings, and take breaks.” “I enjoy talking to policyholders from all over the country and assisting them when they need us the most. It makes me feel good knowing that I am able to helpthem when their agent is unavailable.” =========================================================================== https://careers.statefarm.com/employee/emp-customer-service.asp ========================================================== NOTE: People with previous fraud or theft convictions may be hard to place but, it will depend upon the age, circumstances and the application’s post history to turn their life around. Other types of offences are less of a barrier to employment. Employer will conduct a background check to determine the truthfulness and transparence of the applicant. KEY HERE IS FULL DISCLOSURE WITH AN EMPHASIS UPON THE CIRCUMSTANCES The employer understands that there is a big difference between “I stole to feed my babies” versus “”I didn’t really steal that big screen TV…It was the Super Bowl and I borrowed it…If my truck hadn’t broke down, I would have brought it back…!” Also, the employer is more concerned in who you are instead of who you were. They want to know that you learned more from the experience than just not get caught again. They are interested and weigh heavily what you have done, what you have achieved and how far you are removed from the person who was in trouble. This is your mission, your job and the better you showcase your transformation, the easier it will be for them to hire you. If you have not turned your life around or feel uncomfortable discussing this, these jobs are not for you and save yourself some grief and don’t apply. It’s on you! They do not owe you. You owe it to yourself but, that is a difference conversation...
  13. 13. USED JOB SHACK INSIDER…STATE FARM… Claims Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 2 weeks Interview Details – Applied via their website. Within 3 days, I received an e-mail asking me to complete assessments. These tests included data entry, typing, personality, and logic testing. If you pass those, you are called by a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview is prompt, and took an hour. They ask scenario based questions... Tell me a time when, how you handled it and the result. If you do well in the interview process, they will propose an offer on the spot. There is no 1:1 interview that is face to face. Then they use a company called Hire Right to perform back ground checks, drug screening, etc. Start date is 2 months after phone interview (in my case). The also expect you to be able to handle a very strict schedule (they plan out your day from beginning to end) and you need to be flexible with times of the day for work schedule as it varies. If you miss any tasks requested by hire right through email and don’t respond or do what they ask, your offer is voided. I haven't started yet to provide office info. It is a cubical setting. Interview Question – None of the questions were really difficult. you just have to have scenarios ready and be ready to give the situation, how you handled it and the result. Some questions were: • Tell me a time you disagreed with a boss and how you handled it. • Tell me a time you worked as part of a team and they weren't pulling their weight and how you handled it, etc. ==================================== CRC Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 2 weeks Interview Details – 1. Filled out app online 2. Signed disclosure 3. Received testing material 4. Received competitive score email. 5. HR rep Called to schedule phone interview. Had interview and received job offer the same day. I am currently in the drug screen/drug test part of it now. Interview Question – Name a time you and an employee had a difference of opinion and what came of it. ====================================
  14. 14. Intern Interview - I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months Interview Details – Simple interview with two - three people at the facility. Questions about my projects, previous work experience, why I chose to work here, and also when I would be ready to start if I were offered. The most important thing I would say is be ready to support what you've worked on and how you were able to solve the problems that you did Interview Question – • What was the most difficult thing you've had to make in recent years? Interview Questions • Tell me a little more about yourself • Give a time where you had to persuade a peer or a coworker to have something go your way. What was the situation and how was the outcome? • Tell me about a time you had to multitask between tasks in a pressure environment. What was the situation and how did you overcome it? • Tell me about a time you went above and beyond for a customer. What was the situation and what was the outcome? • Give me a time when you and your coworkers couldn't agree on a project. What was the situation and how did you overcome it? Customer Service Representative Interview - I applied online and the process took 1 week Interview Details – Well I'm just gone start from the Beginning my first step was a phone interview which was scheduled at 11:30 am but I my interviewer called me late. The guy who interviewed me was pretty straight forward and told me at the beginning of the phone interview to tell him a little about me, but he only wanted to hear stuff that would help me get a job. The questions were pretty typical interview questions, I think the only thing at scared him was when i was said something about going back to school. So if you get an interview with this company please don't mention going back to school unless you are more specific on why, because most companies feel that if you go back. ============================================================================= https://www.hrapply.com/bashas/ AppIndex.jsp LOCALIZE YOUR JOB SEARCH AND YOU CAN ENHANCE YOUR CHANCES OF GETTING HIRED…” - A TIP FROM FOOD CITY… STAY WITHIN 5 MILES OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

  17. 17. EMPLOYMENT STARTS HERE! STARTED @ THE FRONT COUNTER IN 2008… GENERAL MANAGER IN 2012 Q: Why did you make the decision to work at Chipotle? A: I had my own business running a daycare but I decided to relocate to Arizona because I wanted change in my life. It was difficult to find work because people did not want to give me a chance. I walked in to Chipotle expecting them to say no like everyone else but instead the General Manager said you have something that we are looking for. Q: How long did it take you to be promoted? A: I remember when I was approached about becoming a Kitchen Manager. I was surprised that someone who had no experience could become a Manager. I thought it was a joke. Once I became a Kitchen Manager it took me about 18 months to become a General Manager and now I am on the path to become a Restaurateur. Q: What advice do you have for someone interested in Chipotle? A: I would tell them that they could not have picked a better company to want to work for. That they are in for an opportunity that could change the way they think about a fast food restaurant and the quality of food that they are serving. Q: What is your favorite menu item? A: My favorite is the veggie bowl with brown rice, pinto beans, corn salsa, green tomatillo salsa, red tomatillo salsa, cheese and guacamole. Q: How has Chipotle impacted your life? A: Chipotle has taught me so much but I think the biggest thing that I have learned is that I can do anything. Chipotle has trained me to not compromise my standards at work or in my personal life. Hard work and determination does not go unnoticed and that this is truly a company that is about changing people lives.

  22. 22. EMPLOYMENT STARTS HERE! Cooks and Cashiers needed, our newest location is in Tempe! Open interviews August 4-8th from 2pm to 5pm at our Rural and Baseline location @ 815 E Baseline Road #115 Tempe, AZ 85283 Apply beforehand online: www.smashburger.com/joinsmash TIPSTER: Ok campers, we went through their application and we want to break the news that you must be prepared to spend a good hour in completing this application because you have to do an assessment after the actual applicant. Also, here are their complete job description(s). Make sure you tear them apart and highlight all the key words and phrases to put into you job description. These descriptions should be good enough if you understand RULE # 4 and you will not need ONET for this. TIPSTER: The assessment sayz that you should answer honestly…Really does say that…PLEASE do not do that or you will be rejected by the computer. For those who do not know how to successfully answer these, we will cut you some slack because it is critical to you getting pass the gatekeeper: A. Always answer that you extremely agree or extremely disagree because any other answer will get you kicked out of the system. B. Remember that these tests determine your suitability to be success in working in a public (retail/service industry) setting. The questions deal with customer service and loss prevention so any answer that is not an extreme response makes you part of the problem instead of part of the solution. C. Customer Service is how you see people and how you interact with them. A sample question will be: “Do you believe that most people are honest?” If you answer “YES” then you are an optimistic person and will be good with dealing with the public in a setting where the
  23. 23. customer is always correct. If you say “No” you would make a better backroom or warehouse worker where your nature mistrust is a good trait in dealing with loss prevention. D. The test is tricky in that they rephrase the same core question in about four-to-five different questions to see if you are truthfully answering (consistency). Sample would be “Do you believe that most politicians are honest?” The truthful answer is that they are all a bunch of crooks and should be put in jail but, if you answer this way then you contradict your first answer that you thought that most people are honest – like it or not, politicians are people too. See? We told you that this was a minefield especially where there is a time limit on the assessment. Keep track of your answers to make sure you are consistent. E. PLEASE understand that you need to think like the employer and answer (not truthfully) as you believe the employer would. Any loss prevention question should be answered with the mindset that you would be willing to put your grandmother in prison for eating three pieces of popcorn off the counter if she didn’t pay for them. If you are or act like a human being then you are part of the loss prevention problem because you will hesitate to destroy a co-worker’s life by turning them in immediately.
