Re: Jobs

Lol, Jobs? Guess you guys are still recovering from the crash. Why don't you move up here to Alberta, Fort Mac will pay you $40-90 an hour, and that's in Canadian currency. ;) Thinking of heading out there and fire fighting. As long as you can stand -50*c, you'll be fine. :D

Re: Jobs

Oh, my, goodness...


I went to a place called Kawaii's Finest Ice that's near my house and I asked for an application and the girl working there told me they only hire girls... It's some old guy that works there. I'm going to call to talk to the owner and if he says the same thing, I'm going to call the Better Business Bureau.
Never in my life have I felt so discriminated against.

Diehard335, what kind of job is it? I would love to go up there to work for the summer.

Haha! There isn't a summer up there bro.

Driving trucks (back loaders), oil tends to catch fire, so you could train to be a firefighter, however that would take more than a summer. Most people can't take it and quit after 1-3 years anyway, so they're always looking for new people. Guess the constant fear of freezing is more important than the cash to some. I don't know, they have a ton of jobs from leavies. just head up there and ask around.

Re: Jobs

i've been out of work for two years since may 13 09. there jsut aint any jobs available down here in the middle of nowhere \. hells not even any of hte fast food resturaunts are hiring now. walmart is always hiring people since most of the people that work there quit within a few months cause they treat their employees like slaves and the managers dont give a damn about you there (i worked there for one month and got told by one of the managers that i was nothign more than a hypochondiatic [sp?] since i was over weight and was havign health probs even while on teh job)

Re: Jobs

leave it to a wal mart manager to not see clearly. of course it could all be an excuse just to fire you.


crait, don't be too shocked if you start seeing that alot.

Re: Jobs

BlackRaider, I have never heard of this happening before... Especially no one telling me that I can't be hired because of my gender to my face. I understand for some jobs, like P.E. teachers in middle school, you have to have gender differences. But this is just driving me nuts.

This is going to catch me a lot of flak, but if women try to be equal so bad, why don't they start paying me to sleep with them? =D> [-o<

Not saying their not, just saying... Y'know, in theory.


And that sucks crait, I'd call them up and tell them how you feel. As ironic as that sounds under this context.

Re: Jobs

I talked to the owner and when I asked about why I couldn't get a job based on my gender he simply said, "Well, we just aren't hiring right now."
Seriously, what the heck??

Re: Jobs

sounds about right imo they don't wanna come right out and say "hey guess what we're being sexist bastards and only hiring teenage girls" and strangly i kinda figured something like that would happen just from the name Kawaii is cute in Japanese and when i think cute i think girls :P
