Get the HR person's phone number. Keep calling, If you show enough interest in the position , you have a better shot at getting it than a person who fills out an application and then walks away. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. You might start out as a casual (Christmas and vacation help). If you make a good impression, they will want to keep you because most people aren't cut out for this job.I've applied a couple of times for opennings in different locations...when I go check on the applications...it shows "pending"... last one was 8/27/...then 9/27 (for the same location)...any ideas whats going on here?
