When I was in the HR today, I was not really expecting to get the position that I applied for a transfer. I got the hunch yesterday!
Since Monday, I was waiting for an email coming from HR. They usually sent an email to the applicants whether they will hire or the position is filled in. The scenario was, I applied the Gift Shop Clerk (full time) last Sunday. To my dismay, I found out only yesterday that my application was not successfully submitted. And since I was awake at 1 AM, I sent it out anyway. I know my submission was late! At 9 AM, I got an email from HR that I should apply in person. And so, I was there at 7:30 AM after my 8 hours of tiring job.
Was glad that Mr. Santa Claus was there, LOL. He is a "Sunshine" to everybody at work. We talk about his hobby playing the game of World of Warcraft while waiting for the in charge who I need to see.
Anyway, I got an email from HR today too, informing me that the position was filled already. Well, I have no issue with that. I knew that they already hired someone yesterday because the posting was gone when I report to work.
BUT, this really bothered me! While I was there in the office, they asked me if I have any experienced handling a cash register and when I said NO; one lady automatically said, that made me not qualified for the position of a Gift Shop Clerk.
I went home in deep thought! If they can not hire me as a clerk in gift shop then, maybe I do not see myself ever hired in another higher position ever. I was turn down because I do not have the EXPERIENCE handling money in the cash register. Don't they give trainings?
By the way, the salary of that job is a dollar lower than what I have at present. I applied because I wanted to explore the other department.
With this experience, I do not see my future in this establishment. If they can't transfer me in this EASY POSITION because I lack experience, they will never transfer me in any position in the future. I might as well move on....
