Contemporary Personnel Staffing Compliment - I had a job in less than a week
LIVERPOOL, NEW YORK -- I started job hunting on Memorial Day. In all honesty I lost track of how many companies I applied to. On my first day I think I spent a good 7 to 8 hours of filling out applications online.
I was at the point where I didn't care what the job was. I even applied to cleaning positions and crappy part time jobs.
I applied to so many jobs that... I'd actually forgotten that I'd also applied to Contemporary Personnel Staffing, until I got a call from them last Monday, asking if I could come in that day.
Hell yeah. They even had a position they were trying to fill that they felt I'd be qualified for.
So, I went in, filled out all the paperwork, including my W2s and signed off on the company policies. The next day I had my first interview at one of the companies. Not really sure how it went... one of those "we'll let you know. We have a couple of other people to interview."
Eh. OK. But the next day I got a call from CPS, saying that they found another company and that I could have an interview for 1pm on Thursday. Sure! And the location is ... 9 minutes away from where I live? Sweet.
I went to the job interview and... oh it went well. It was for a job I use to do in the Navy, but one I hadn't really done since the end of 2004. BUT, prior to that I had a good 7 years experience with, so it went well.
And by "It went well" I mean, at the end of the interview, I was told, "Be here at 9am on Monday to start."
Yep! None of that "we'll call you"... it was a pure "you're hired!"
so... granted I haven't started work yet, it'll be this Monday but... yeah.
I started job hunting on the 31st of May, got a call from CPS on 7th of June. I start work on the 14th.
that's pretty bloody awesome. :-)
