Get your shit together already, employment

I am getting a new job. It is a fuck of a lot better than my previous job, both for pay and not being much of a pain in the ass, so I really fucking want this job, and to start as soon as possible. I went to an interview. I did well at interview. I was told that it was great, easy interview, I basically had the job, except that I had to do a 2nd interview - since there were multiple jobs available in the same building, and had to interview again in the specific department. There were several that I was available for and qualified for any of them, so all I had to do now was wait until they decide where they needed me. The last I heard, it made it sound like there were different managers of 3 different openings who wanted to hire me. That seems like it should be a good problem to have. It isn't.

Waiting for this shit is getting me fucking impatient. I'd do what they'd said and wait for them to contact me about it, but it's been almost a week, and what is it, if you want a job then you're supposed to stay in contact to seem interested so your name doesn't end up at th bottom of the pile, right? There's these 3 different openings that are all in different departments and have different managers at different times, and there's the first one that I already did the interview for - I don't know who the fuck I should contact to find out what the hell's going on with this. Not for lack of trying, either. I called one, who said that a 2nd manager had mentioned having opening that they were having problems filling because of incompetent fucks. So I emailed the 2nd, who said that no, he didn't have anything except temporary, and so I should go through the 3rd. Then later the 1st contacted me again because I'd mentioned that I'd done some building / repairing pcs, so I should contact a /4th,/ since they were having trouble filling THAT position since no one was qualified or capable or even confident to learn operating some certain machine.

Can't these guys just fucking decide where they want to hire me and then tell me so I can start training in to this shit? Taken so long that I'm concerned they'll end up filling all the openings with people who /aren't/ qualified in endless fucking areas and only able to do one certain thing, so they give the jobs to them and I have to start looking again.

Hey, DISH contacted me, did a phone interview, and said they wanted to bring me in for an in-person interview because they have a position for me. That was like 5 months ago. They still haven't gotten the position approved. Yeah. A week is nothing, dude.

They're probably testing your patience value right now, and they're cackling over it. Just having a grand ole' time sending you in loops of managers.

Good luck. Sounds like a veritable mess. :O_o:

Also, if you're overqualified, that's not good. :no:

This is one of those that a robot could do it if a robot were less expensive than me, it's tough to not be overqualified for that, but I guess there are a lot of people who can't figure out the parts of it that are more technical or complicated, so hopefully not that much of a problem.

Or maybe they're waiting to see who can fill in certain spots to put you in the ones that remain, as you're versatile.

That could be, but whatever the reason is, waiting around for them to figure it out is getting me impatient. Hell, they could start training me in one area and then if necessary switch me to somewhere else, if they really had to. And it didn't sound like they had any problems getting applicants, so I'm wondering if that "yeah definitely great interview you have this job" wasn't entirely true and I were wasting time hoping for this one.

Well, you could always spend your time checking other places meanwhile so you don't depend on them and let the time be wasted.
If you get a spot somewhere, yet you'd be paid better here, you can call them and use it as leverage to get them to make their decision now, so you know what you should do. Namely, if they want you they should tell you now or you'll just go in a place that actually seems determined in that sense before you lose out on both.

Hmmh, I haven't found anything else nearby that would be worth much competition - mostly part time, or seasonal, places that could easily hire anyone without any qualifications and not shit I could live off anyways. Going to try calling 1st place again tomorrow if I still haven't heard shit.
